Top Trey Murphy III News

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Generates season-high 30 points

    Murphy finished with 30 points (9-11 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 36 minutes during Sunday's 136-104 victory over the Kings.

    The 30 points were a new season high for Murphy, who turned in a 21-point outing a day earlier in the Pelicans' 131-126 win over the Lakers. Murphy drilled 10 of his 19 attempts from long range between those two contests, providing excellent value for those who streamed in for the weekend back-to-back set. The second-year player benefited from some extra touches Sunday while Brandon Ingram (toe) was resting, so Murphy could lose out on some scoring chances when Ingram likely rejoins the lineup Tuesday against the Hawks.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Strong effort Saturday

    Murphy recorded 21 points (7-12 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and five rebounds across 28 minutes during Saturday's 131-126 victory over the Lakers.

    Murphy was efficient from the field and ended up as one of New Orleans' best scorers during the comeback win, as he reached the 20-point plateau for the first time since Dec. 28. Don't expect Murphy to be one of New Orleans' biggest scoring weapons on a regular basis, however, as he's averaging just 12.4 points per contest across 18 outings since the calendar flipped to January and has scored more than 15 points just six times in that span.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Offers supplemental scoring

    Murphy finished with 14 points (6-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, two steals and one assist across 32 minutes in Tuesday's 122-113 loss to the Nuggets.

    For the second game in a row, Murphy reached the teens in scoring while knocking down at least half of his shot attempts and chipping in at least one steal. Though his production in the past two games isn't anything eye-popping, Murphy has at least provided some hope that he can retain some utility in 12-team category leagues even with Brandon Ingram having returned to action following an extended absence. Murphy could find it more difficult to hold down a regular 30-minute role once Zion Williamson (hamstring) is playing again, however.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Passive performance again in loss

    Murphy ended Saturday's 113-103 loss to the Wizards with 10 points (4-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 27 minutes.

    Murphy continues to do a lot of standing around for the Pelicans, providing nothing but frustration for his managers with 10 points or less on four of the past six games. While he has been a top-110 player over the past month, the majority of his value comes from his lack of turnovers and high efficiency from the free throw line. He is fine to have on a 12-team roster but given he has been unable to break out, even with key pieces out, his long-term value remains questionable.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Scores efficient 18 points in loss

    Murphy racked up 18 points (7-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one block across 40 minutes during Friday's 123-110 loss to Orlando.

    Murphy put together a solid fantasy line, built primarily on his efficiency from the floor. He has now scored at least 15 points in four of his past five games, reversing a trend that saw him dropped in several standard-format leagues. While not the flashiest player, his role is relatively secure at this point, making him a must-roster player, especially for anyone needing an efficient scorer.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Contributes across board

    Murphy logged 19 points (6-11 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals over 35 minutes during Friday's 116-110 win over Detroit.

    Murphy drilled three triples and was aggressive on the offensive end, as Friday marked his second time in January attempting eight shots from deep. He's also managed to record at least one block and one steal in each of his last three games.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Back in double digits

    Murphy accumulated 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist, one block and three steals across 34 minutes during Wednesday's 125-114 loss to the Celtics.

    Murphy had been held to 13 total points over his last two contests combined heading into Wednesday's clash, but he managed to find success in Boston. He posted an efficient shooting night and led his team with three steals. Murphy has now scored in double figures in three of his last five matchups.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Battles foul trouble Saturday

    Murphy racked up seven points (3-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one block in 25 minutes during Saturday's 127-117 loss to the Mavericks.

    Murphy came up short again Saturday, managing just seven points despite sticking in the starting unit. Early fouls limited him to just 25 minutes, although he wasn't having a sizeable impact even without the fouls. It appears as though he will remain a starter for the foreseeable future, making him a viable asset in 12-team formats. His production of late may indicate otherwise, resulting in him being dropped in a few spots. If that is the case in your league, he is certainly worth considering.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Active Saturday

    Murphy (ankle) will play in Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Murphy suffered a right ankle sprain in Friday's game and was limited to just 20 minutes in the contest. However, he made it through warmups Saturday without setbacks and has been given the green light to suit up.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Questionable vs. Grizzlies

    Murphy is questionable for Saturday's game against the Grizzlies due to a right ankle sprain, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

    Murphy totaled eight points, two rebounds and a steal in 20 minutes during Friday's win over the 76ers, but he sustained an ankle injury during the victory. If he's sidelined against Memphis, Devonte' Graham and Dyson Daniels could see increased run.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Quiet in limited minutes

    Murphy logged eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt), two rebounds and one steal in 20 minutes during Friday's 127-116 win over Philadelphia.

    Murphy remained in the starting lineup but was relatively quiet after a couple of encouraging performances. He was limited to just 20 minutes as the coaching staff went with the defensive upside of guys like Jose Alvarado and Dyson Daniels. He also appeared to suffer a leg injury during the third quarter, although there has been no word as to whether that limited him down the stretch. He is probably worth holding in standard leagues, at least until Brandon Ingram (toe) returns, although his ceiling does appear somewhat capped given the depth of the Pelicans roster.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Looks sharp in return

    Murphy produced 21 points (6-8 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), three rebounds and four assists over 27 minutes during Wednesday's 119-118 victory over the Timberwolves.

    Murphy missed the Pelicans' last matchup Monday against the Pacers while recovering from an illness, but he looked like his usual self in Wednesday's win. He was particularly impressive from beyond the arc, where he scored 15 of his 21 points. Murphy has now put up 20-plus points in back-to-back matchups.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Available Wednesday

    Murphy (illness) is available for Wednesday's matchup against Minnesota, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    As expected, Murphy will return to action Wednesday following a one-game absence due to an illness. Brandon Ingram (toe) and Herbert Jones (COVID-19 protocols) both remain out, so Murphy should be in store for a sizable role against the Timberwolves. Over his past 14 appearances (13 starts), Murphy has averaged 14.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.3 steals in 31.0 minutes.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Rejoins starting five

    Murphy is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Timberwolves, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Murphy will rejoin the starting lineup after missing Monday's game with an illness. He is averaging 14.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 30.2 minutes across his last five games.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Practices Tuesday, should play

    Head coach Willie Green said Murphy (illness) practiced Tuesday and will be listed as probable for Wednesday's matchup against the Timberwolves, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Murphy was sidelined for Monday's game against the Pacers after being a late addition to the injury report with an illness. However, after practicing Tuesday, it appears like the second-year wing will return to action Wednesday. Before his absence, he had scored in double figures in four of his past five appearances and posted 14.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.0 steals during that stretch.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Ruled out Monday

    Murphy (illness) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Pacers, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

    Murphy was originally listed as questionable after being a late addition to the injury report Monday, so his absence is not really surprising. This means the Pelicans will be extremely shorthanded to face Indiana due to a plethora of absences, and Murphy being out will likely translate to more minutes for Devonte' Graham and Jose Alvarado. Murphy's next chance to play will come Wednesday against Minnesota.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Dealing with illness

    Murphy is questionable for Monday's game against the Pacers due to a non-COVID illness, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

    Murphy was a late addition to the injury report Monday due to an illness, which doesn't bode well for his availability against Indiana. Brandon Ingram (toe) and Herbert Jones (COVID-19) have already been ruled out, Zion Williamson (rest) is doubtful and Dyson Daniels (illness), Larry Nance (Achilles) and Murphy are all questionable, so New Orleans may be extremely shorthanded against the Pacers.
