2018 Fantasy Outlook
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.

Plays 31 minutes in victory
GDenver Nuggets
March 15, 2019
Morris had just seven points, four assists, two steals, and one block in 31 minutes during Thursday's 100-99 victory over the Mavericks.
ANALYSIS
Morris was disappointing Thursday, ending the game with limited production across the board. The numbers were certainly not a positive but he did manage to play 31 minutes and that is something to take notice of. Isaiah Thomas is going to be out of the rotation for the foreseeable future which means Morris is going to hover around the fringes of standard leagues. Nights such as this emphasize why he is going to struggle to hold down a permanent roster spot, but should still be considered as an assists and points streamer.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
