Goodwin scored a team-high 22 points (7-14 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT) to go along with seven assists and one rebound in 38 minutes on Thursday in a loss against the Rockets. Goodwin seems to be back to normal in his last two games, and this was a very positive sign for his owners going forward. He was never a point guard by trade, but Goodwin is making the most of his opportunity right now. It would be nice if he can keep the turnovers down, but the Suns are just happy to have healthy players at the moment. Continue to roll out Goodwin until Brandon Knight returns from injury.
Goodwin had 18 points (7-12 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 assists, two rebounds, and one block in 45 minutes during the Suns' 104-97 loss to the Raptors on Tuesday. Goodwin's 12 assists and 45 minutes were both easily career-highs, and he will likely continue to receive ample minutes going forward given injuries to Eric Bledsoe (knee), Brandon Knight (groin), T.J. Warren (foot), and Ronnie Price (foot). Goodwin has seen 20 or more minutes in eight straight contests, but with his teammates ailing, he figures to see north of 30 minutes per game for the foreseeable future.
Goodwin scored 12 points (3-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT) with five assists, two rebounds, and two steals over 30 minutes in a 115-93 loss to the Cavaliers on Wednesday. With a groin injury sidelining Brandon Knight for the duration of Phoenix's four-game road trip, Goodwin has enjoyed an uptick in court time -- starting each of the team's last four games despite starting just once from Oct. 28 to Jan. 19. Goodwin, who has averaged 20.5 points over his last four games, will likely continue receiving the lion's share of Knight's minutes, as the 21-year-old possesses higher upside than Sonny Weems or Lorenzo Brown.
Goodwin didn't take long to set a new season high, scoring 26 points (11-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-5 FT) to go along with six rebounds, six assists and a pair of steals over 29 minutes in Tuesday's 113-103 loss to the 76ers. The injuries to Brandon Knight and Eric Bledsoe have really been a blessing for the Suns as Goodwin and rookie Devin Booker have emerged as real cornerstones. Goodwin has set a new season high in each of his past three games while scoring at least 20 points. He made most of his money at the rim and his six assists were also a season best. Goodwin likely won't remain cheap in daily formats for long and chances are he's been scooped up in most standard formats.
Goodwin tallied a season-high 24 points (7-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 8-9 FT), four assist, two blocks, two steals, and one rebound across 41 minutes in Saturday's 98-95 win over the Hawks. Making a second consecutive start in place of the injured Brandon Knight (hip), Goodwin dominated the minutes at point guard and showed a flair for the dramatic by hitting the game-winning three-pointer with 0.1 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, halting the Suns' losing streak at six games. He's now turned in back-to-back 20-plus point efforts in his two starts and will make for an outstanding cost-effective daily option while he remains with the top unit. It's not clear how much longer Knight may be sidelined due to his left abductor strain.
