2019 Fantasy Outlook
Morant will presumably take over the Grizzlies' starting point guard spot, which was vacated as a result of the trade of Mike Conley to the Jazz. Morant, the 2018-19 OVC Player of the Year and Consensus All-American, averaged 24.5 points, 10.0 assists, 5.7 rebounds and 1.8 steals across 36.6 minutes last year with Murray State. He's lauded for his athleticism and playmaking ability, but an underdeveloped jumpshot and tendency to turn the ball over could be a cause of early struggles in the NBA. Rookie point guards can often get off to a rough start, but fantasy owners should be confident that the rookie will have a big role with the Grizzlies right out of the gate, and Memphis is likely to let Morant get plenty of reps considering the team's rebuilding status. Morant makes for a safer pick in points leagues, where a potentially troublesome field-goal percentage and lack of threes won't damage his fantasy value. Read Past Outlooks

One assist shy of double-double
GMemphis Grizzlies
January 21, 2020
Morant had 16 points (5-14 FG, 1-2 3PT, 5-6 FT), nine assists, three rebounds and one steal in 35 minutes during Monday's 126-116 loss against the Pelicans.
ANALYSIS
Morant came just one assist shy of what would've been his third double-double this month, and he seems to have taken a huge step forward once the calendar flipped to 2020. The rookie floor general has dished out seven or more assists in every single January outing thus far, and he is averaging 19.3 points, 8.8 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game while shooting 56.7 from the field and 42.9 percent from deep during the first month of the year.
