Warren had a strong start to his third year in the league, but a lingering head injury temporarily derailed his breakout season and held him to just 66 games, ultimately ending with averages of 14.4 points and 5.1 rebounds on 31.0 minutes per game. Both standing at 6-foot-8, Warren and Jackson will likely see stints playing at power forward during the season ahead with Marquese Chriss shifting down to center. Assuming one of them is found capable of playing up in size, a lineup of Eric Bledsoe, Devin Booker, Jackson, Warren, and Chriss could see considerable usage over the course of 2017-18.
Warren finished without missing a shot, racking up 21 points (8-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds and two steals across 29 minutes during Sunday's 124-111 victory over the Mavericks.
Warren, a 23-year-old forward out of North Carolina State, continues to impress since being given extended run after the Suns traded 31-year-old forward P.J. Tucker to the Raptors just before the deadline. Since the trade, Warren is averaging 17.6 points on 54.6 percent shooting, 7.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks across 35.2 minutes per game -- asserting himself as a quality fantasy player in nearly every format.
Warren posted 23 points (10-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 16 rebounds and a blocked shot over 33 minutes in Friday's 120-99 win against the Thunder.
Warren might have been still dealing with the after effects of his illness last time out, as he was held to single digits in the points department. Even with that stinker Wednesday against the Warriors he is averaging 19.2 points per game over his past 10 outings, well above his season totals.
Warren (illness) will play Wednesday against the Warriors, Craig Grialou of ArizonaSports.com reports.
Warren went through a full practice Tuesday, even playing one-on-one with a few players afterward, so he should be good to go Wednesday following a one-game absence due to illness. With the Suns set to roll with a shorthanded roster for the rest o the season, Warren figures to take on a 35-plus-minute role while rejoining the starting five Wednesday. Derrick Jones would head back to the bench in a corresponding move.
Warren will be sidelined for Sunday's game against the Rockets due to an illness.
This is the first news of Warren coming down with something, but it's apparently bad enough to keep him out of Sunday's action. In his absence, Derrick Jones and Jared Dudley will likely see extra workload.
