Anthony Morrow Returns From Hamstring Injury

New Jersey Nets swingman Anthony Morrow was back in action Friday night after missing over a month due to a hamstring injury. He played 14 minutes, scoring 10 points on 2 three-pointers.

The Breakdown
Before the injury, Morrow sat in the top 100 of our player ratings. We figure he'll return to the starting line up and play a bigger role once he's back in game shape. While Morrow was out, though, the Nets added another sharpshooter in Sasha Vujacic. Because Sasha has played very well since coming to New Jersey and has earned a spot in the rotation, he could end up hurting Morrow's minutes and value.

Morrow is worth a speculative addition in standard formats for teams that need additional scoring and threes. Those who decide to roster Morrow will have to monitor his minutes and production over the next five games or so to see if he'll contribute the way he did before the injury.
