Morrison (knee) was fit enough for Mondayís Under-21 game and only didnít play due to rules on the number of over-age players, manager Alan Irvine told the club website.

Morrison has an outside chance of making the squad for Saturdayís game against Southampton and is good value to pick up a handful of assists as a key part of the teamís midfield.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Morrison will miss Saturday's friendly against Porto with a knee injury, Express and Star reports.

Despite sitting out Saturday, Morrison will still have a shot to play in the EPL opener against Sunderland on Aug. 16. With the long season ahead, resting Morrison is likely more precautionary than anything else.

Morrison's ankle continues to keep him from training, and he is considered a serious injury doubt for Monday's match at Manchester City, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Morrison has just one goal this season, although all three of his assists have come in 2014. That being said, he remains a weak fantasy option, especially with his injury status.

Morrison faces a late fitness test on his ankle ahead of Saturday's match against Tottenham, the club's official web site reports.

Manager Pepe Mel said that if Morrison is unable to play, Chris Brunt will start in his place. Morrison has one goal and three assists in 27 games this season, with all of the assists coming in 2014.

Morrison picked up a knock in training Friday and is out for Sunday's match against Liverpool, Chris Lepowski of the Birmingham Mail reports.

Morrison had recorded assists in each of his last two Premier League matches, but he'll have to wait until next weekend at Crystal Palace to try to extend his streak.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Morrison, who suffered a groin injury earlier this season, has scored one goal in 10 appearances this year for West Brom. He hasn't been a fixture in the starting XI, coming off the bench in four of the past five Premier League matches.

Morrison doesn't get enough playing time to record the scattered clean sheets that West Brom gets and doesn't score many goals, which limits his fantasy potential considerably.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Morrison is doubtful for Saturday's Premier League match against Fulham due to a groin injury he picked up against Swansea on September 1, the Express and Star reports.

Morrison has not returned to training yet, so it's unlikely that he'll be fit by Saturday to face Fulham. His next shot at the pitch will come September 21 against Sunderland.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Morrison netted his second goal of the season as West Brom fought to a 3-2 win over QPR on Saturday.

Morrison carries a very, very reasonable price tag in fantasy leagues and is well worth a buy in fantasy leagues, especially if you go with four midfielders.
