Tucker finished with eight points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt) with 13 rebounds and two steals over 27 minutes in Monday's 106-101 loss against the Jazz.
Tucker is coming off the bench, but he is still very productive for fantasy owners. He has 6.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.4 steals in seven games in the month of January. The fifth-year pro is a decent option in deeper leagues, especially for his help in the rebounding category.
Tucker will move to the bench Saturday against the Jazz.
Tucker will give way to youngster T.J. Warren on Saturday. Unfortunately for Tucker, it's possible that Warren will receive the lion's share of minutes at small forward during the season ahead as the Suns focus on youth with their playoff chances getting further and further out of reach. The veteran is certainly capable of playing power forward as well, but currently the team is electing to start rookie Marquese Chriss.
Tucker tallied 14 points (4-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and four rebounds across 30 minutes in a 99-91 win over the Raptors on Thursday.
T.J. Warren no longer seems to be facing any playing-time restrictions after being limited initially upon his return from a head injury, but Tucker continues to hold down the starting role at small forward. Coach Earl Watson seems content to let both Tucker and Warren play together, which has allowed both players to log sizable minutes while Jared Dudley has fallen out of the rotation. It seems as though Tucker's role in the rotation could remain fairly stable with Warren back in the fold, so those holding Tucker in deep leagues shouldn't cut bait with him just yet.
Tucker recorded four points (2-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six rebounds, four steals and one assist in 36 minutes during Monday's 115-108 loss to the Timberwolves.
Despite T.J. Warren's return from a head injury, Tucker continues to start and see significant minutes, having played at least 33 minutes in both games. The 31-year-old is averaging 7.7 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists in the 15 games since Warren went down. Tucker should continue to see a significant role while Warren remains limited by restricted minutes.
Tucker provided nine points (3-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt), 10 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal across a season-high 42 minutes in Monday's 120-119 overtime loss to the Pelicans.
Tucker has been useful roster filler in deep leagues while starting the past seven games, as he's averaged 9.6 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.4 three-pointers, 1.4 assists and 0.9 steals in 31.7 minutes per contest during that stretch. However, it doesn't look as though he'll be a strong lineup option heading into the Suns' three-game slate this week, given that T.J. Warren (head) returned to full-contact practice Saturday and could be on track to return Tuesday against the Knicks. Warren had been starting at small forward prior to his absence and was averaging 17.7 points per game, so it's expected he'll immediately reclaim his spot on the top unit and push Tucker into a more reduced bench role.
