Warren scored 15 points (7-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, three blocks and a steal in 30 minutes off the bench during Sunday's win over the Raptors. It's his first double-double of the season, but Warren is becoming one of the pillars of the Phoenix bench in his second NBA campaign, averaging 19.3 points, 5.3 boards, 1.0 blocks and 0.8 steals in 29.5 minutes over the last four games. There's been no indication from coach Jeff Hornacek that the youngster could bump P.J. Tucker from the starting lineup, but even if he remains a reserve Warren's fantasy value is on the upswing.
Warren poured in a career-high 28 points (12-16 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists and two steals over 35 minutes in Friday's 135-116 loss to the Warriors. Warren enjoyed a momentous night in the loss, and may be on the verge of usurping incumbent P.J. Tucker for the starting small forward spot. The second-year pro's 28 points were a career high, and his 12-for-16 performance from the field impressively marked the fourth time that Warren has been at 70 percent or better with his shot so far this season. With Warren showing what he can do with a starter's allotment of playing time, a significant boost in opportunity may be on the horizon, making him a good "buy-low" candidate in fantasy leagues at the moment.
Warren had a solid night off the bench Monday, scoring 16 points (7-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with three rebounds, two assists, and a block in 26 minutes in a loss to the Spurs.

He's also been playing well since returning. Over his last two games, Warren has averaged 12.5 PPG, 2.5 RPG, and 1.0 APG in 23.5 minutes per game. Warren appears to be back into his large bench role for the Suns.
