Insight: He had 20 points and 11 rebounds, along with three assists and one block. Morris was also 6-of-6 from the line, and if owners get this type of production consistently, it will help a ton of fantasy teams.

Markieff is the brother owners want to draft in fantasy, this season.

Insight: Morris has played well off the bench this season, averaging 26 minutes, 12.9 points and 6.1 rebounds, but he's providing just 0.3 blocks, 0.3 threes and 0.9 steals per game, which limits his value.
11/22/2013 9:50:00 PM
Description: Phoenix power forward Markieff Morris had 11 points and nine rebounds in 36 minutes Friday against the Bobcats after averaging just 19 minutes, 4.3 points and 3.3 rebounds over his last four.
Insight: Morris averaged 32 minutes, 22.8 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals in four games from Nov. 5-10, but the four games prior to Friday remind us to temper expectations for the 24-year-old. He should still be owned in most leagues.

Description: Phoenix power forward Markieff Morris is expected to give it a go Wednesday versus Portland. Morris has been dealing with an illness. SOURCE: Erik Gunderson, The Colombian
Insight: Morris is having a breakout season. In six games, he's averaging 17.2 ppg on 62.7 percent shooting. He might play a little less than usual because of the illness but he's still worth starting in most fantasy leagues.
Hot11/12/2013 7:13:00 PM
Description: Suns coach Jeff Hornacek acknowledged Tuesday that power forward Markieff Morris could start at some point, but he doesn't want to disrupt the bench chemistry right now. SOURCE: Matt Petersen,
Insight: Morris is averaging 31 minutes, 22.8 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.0 steals over the last four games. Even if he remains on the bench, he should still consistently get 30-plus minutes per game and should be added in all leagues.
Hot11/9/2013 9:01:00 AM
Description: Suns power forward Markieff Morris has made 21-of-26 from the field and averaged 25.5 ppg and 11 rpg his last two games.
Insight: Morris hasn't returned to the starting lineup yet after missing the season opener due to a suspension, but he's played at least 29 minutes in three straight games and is a must-add in deeper leagues.
10/26/2013 3:45:00 PM
Description: Suns power forward Markieff Morris will miss the season opener.
Insight: He's been suspended for one game without pay for elbowing Serge Ibaka in the face this past week. Morris will be the Suns starting power forward beginning in Game 2 of the season. He has standard league appeal as he'll contribute something positive in points, rebounds, blocks, steals and threes.
3/5/2013 11:48:00 AM
Description: Suns power forward Markieff Morris is questionable for Wednesday's game against Toronto with a sore right knee.
Insight: Neither Markieff or twin brother Marcus are producing fantasy-worthy numbers, though with Jermaine O'Neal out for three games one of the two may get more minutes. More likely Marcus.
