Goodwin (ankle) is expected to return Wednesday against the Clippers, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports. Goodwin was held out of Monday's game due to a sprained left ankle, but it looks as though the third-year guard will be cleared to return for the regular season finale. "I think Archie is back tonight," coach Earl Watson told the media. Prior to Monday's game, Goodwin had been averaging 11.4 points and 2.8 assists per game through five April contests.
Goodwin (ankle) was held out of Monday's 105-101 loss to the Kings. Goodwin's chances of playing were never promising after he was listed as doubtful heading into the matchup due to a left ankle sprain. Starting point guard Ronnie Price (35 minutes) and John Jenkins (19 minutes) ended up covering most of the open playing time in Goodwin's absence, and should see expanded workloads again in Wednesday's season finale against the Clippers in the event Goodwin remains out.
Goodwin is dealing with a left ankle sprain and is considered doubtful for Monday's game against the Kings, Paul Coro of AZcentral.com reports. Goodwin is coming off his best game in quite some time after putting up 24 points in 25 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday, but it appears he'll be sidelined Monday due to the sprained ankle. Although Goodwin's injury is nothing serious, John Jenkins figures to see a slightly increased role off the bench if Goodwin is forced to miss any time.
Goodwin scored 24 points (7-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 7-9 FT) to go with three rebounds, three assists, and one block in 25 minutes during Saturday's win against Pelicans. Goodwin had his best game in over two months against the depleted Pelicans, finishing with his highest point total since Jan. 26. Goodwin has improved in each of his three NBA seasons but has a ways to go before he's fantasy relevant.
Goodwin pitched in with 16 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT), five assists, two rebounds and three steals over 21 minutes in Thursday's 124-115 victory over the Rockets. The third-year pro made a strong contribution off the bench, managing his best scoring total since tallying 20 points on Feb. 22 versus the Clippers. With Brandon Knight (sports hernia) out for the season and only veteran Ronnie Price in front of him at present, it's conceivable that coach Earl Watson could give Goodwin some run with the first unit in the final few games.
