Morrison has been out since January due to a hamstring issue, but is slated to return to training next week, according to West Brom's Director of Performance.

Morrison's return would be an improvement to West Brom's side as his replacements haven't done much in his absence. Despite not appearing in the last couple months, Morrison still leads the West Brom midfield with three goals and three assists.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Morrison (hamstring) hasn't appeared for West Brom since a Jan. 13 match against Chelsea. Tony Pulis said Morrison could be ready in a couple weeks.

A mixture of players have been used in Morrison's absence, but Stephane Sessegnon has benefitted the most with playing time. Unfortunately, he only has one goal and two assists in 1,239 minutes of league action. West Brom has a tough matchup against Manchester United this weekend.

Morrison (hamstring) has been ruled out for Tuesday's match against Leicester City, Sky Sports reports.

Morrison has been out since mid-January due to a ruptured hamstring, and given that he hasn't even returned to full training yet, it'll likely be a while before he is able to compete for starts.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Morrison (hamstring) will be out six-to-eight weeks with ruptured hamstring, manager Tony Pulis revealed.

Morrison has been one of the best and most prolific weapons for the Baggies this season with three goals and three assists in 18 Premier League appearances and 83.6 pass success percentage over that span. Craig Gardner and Stephane Sessegnon will probably be the biggest beneficiaries of his absence in terms of playing time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Morrison will miss Saturday's match versus Southampton because of a knee injury.

The midfielder was forced out of Wednesday's draw with Chelsea following just six minutes on the pitch, and he will not have the requisite time to recover. Craig Gardner replaced Morrison Wednesday, and he appears to be the most likely candidate to start in his stead.

Morrison was taken off just six minutes into Wednesday's match with Chelsea due to a hamstring injury.

Morrison was replaced by Craig Gardner, who could start in his place if he has to miss additional time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Morrison picked up an assist on one key pass and blasted four shots (one on target) in the 2-1 win over Stoke on Saturday.

Morrison has now tallied three goals and three assists in 17 Premier League appearances. After a long and quiet period he's returning to form, lining up seven total shots (three on target) to go along with the assist in the last two games. Morrison is a regular starter and is one of the better options in a generally fantasy-weak lineup.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Morrison scored a goal and was issued a yellow card in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Arsenal.

After netting a brace against Chelsea on Aug. 23, Morrison hasn't scored since, but found a big moment to score his third goal of the season. Five minutes after Morrison's equalizer, a Mikel Arteta own goal gave the Baggies a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The yellow card was only his second of the season and discipline hasn't really been an issue for him.
