Description: Marcus Morris will start in place of P.J. Tucker on Wednesday, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. Tucker is suspended for hitting Blake Griffin on Monday.
Insight: If Eric Bledsoe wasn't making his return from an injury we probably would see a starting lineup that included Bledsoe, Goran Dragic and Gerald Green with Tucker out, but Bledsoe is being eased back into action after missing two and a half months with a torn meniscus.

Insight: That explains why Morris was deactivated prior to Wednesday's game. Marcus will be reunited with his twin brother, Markieff, with the Suns. The two played together at Kansas. Neither player will have any fantasy value.

Description: Rockets power forward Marcus Morris scored just four points on 2-of-6 shooting in 21 minutes Saturday against the 76ers.
Insight: Morris is only averaging 5.9 ppg in 21 mpg this month, due in large part to Patrick Patterson, who has returned from an injury to average 10.1 points and 5.4 rebounds in 21 minutes per game in January. Both players are going to struggle to have fantasy value, especially when Carlos Delfino is taking up so many minutes off the bench as the three to Chandler Parsons' four.

Description: Rockets forward Marcus Morris made 6-of-8 from the floor (3-4 3PT) for 16 points Saturday against Memphis.
Insight: Morris has started the last four games and averaged 15.5 ppg during that span. Patrick Patterson will miss two more weeks due to a bruised right knee so go ahead and grab Morris.

Description: Rockets forward Marcus Morris is has tallied 15.3 ppg and 4.7 rpg in three games since joining the starting lineup.
