2019 Fantasy Outlook
Morris took a huge leap in playing time in his second year in the league. He appeared in only three NBA games as a rookie in 2017-18, playing on a two-way contract. His big-time play in the G League earned him a roster spot in 2018-19, and he averaged 24.0 minutes per night, appearing in all 82 games. Morris operated mainly as a reserve and averaged 10.4 points, 3.6 assists and 2.4 rebounds. He provided quality shooting as well, going 49.3 percent from the field and 41.4 percent from three while canning 1.1 triples per contest. Morris figures to have a similar role this season, serving as the primary backup point guard to franchise star Jamal Murray. Morris is a talented guard, but Denver has arguably the deepest roster in the Association, and his ceiling is capped by all of the quality options available around him. Read Past Outlooks

Scores 12 points in preseason win
GDenver Nuggets
October 9, 2019
Morris totaled 12 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four assists and two rebounds 19 minutes during Tuesday's 105-94 preseason victory over the Trail Blazers.
Morris picked right up where he left off last season, scoring 12 points to go with team-high four assists. Morris was tremendous for the Nuggets last season, flirting with standard league value for periods. He is locked in as the backup point guard which does cap his value somewhat. However, he is arguably the best facilitator behind Nikola Jokic and could spend time on the floor with the starters at times. He is not worth rostering in standard formats but is worth keeping an eye on should he get hot.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Morris spent the 2017-18 campaign on a two-way contract, which limited him to just three total appearances at the NBA level. The bulk of his action came in the G-League, where he played in 37 games and averaged 18.0 points, 6.7 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.8 steals across 34.8 minutes. His strong play at that level earned him a standard contract from the Nuggets this season, so Morris is fully expected to land on the 15-man roster following cuts. However, with Jamal Murray locked in as the starting point guard and Isaiah Thomas being brought in during free agency, Morris will sit no higher than third on the depth chart and will still struggle to get significant minutes most nights.
Morris was known as a playmaking guard in his days with Iowa State at the collegiate level and he'll be yet another project for coach Mike Malone after being selected with the 51st pick of the 2017 NBA Draft. The four-year college vet averaged at least 28.0 minutes in all of his seasons at Iowas State and he'll be one of the more battle-tested rookies in this year's class. What's really enticing about Morris is the fact that he saw a major increase in numbers in all four years of his collegiate career. He ended his senior season with averages of 16.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 1.5 steals per game, showing the ability to both score at a high rate and play extremely well as a distributor when needed. A role for Morris on the Nuggets during the upcoming campaign will likely be tough to find and Morris should spend most of the season developing in the G-League.
