Suns' Alex Len: Plays only 14 minutes in starting role Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Len provided six points (2-7 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds and two steals across 14 minutes in a 100-96 loss to the Bucks on Sunday.

With an eye on getting some younger players more run after the All-Star break, coach Earl Watson has phased former starting center Tyson Chandler out of the rotation the last two games, allowing Len to pick up a pair of starts. After providing only four points and seven boards in 35 minutes in Friday's loss to the Bulls, Len was more effective Sunday, but saw his court time slashed with backup Alan Williams (17 points, 15 boards in 34 minutes) proving to be the better performer. It looks like there will be room in the rotation for both Len and Williams as the season winds down, but Watson may not be consistent with how he doles out the minutes between the two. As a result, it may be difficult to justify rostering Len outside of deeper leagues.

Suns' Brandon Knight: Falls out of rotation for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 100-96 loss to the Bucks on Sunday.

After the Suns failed to find a trade partner for Knight at the deadline last Thursday, it appears the team is more or less writing the 25-year-old off as a sunk cost for the final third of the season. Knight has failed to appear in either of the Suns' two games since the deadline, as coach Earl Watson has deployed Tyler Ulis and Leandro Barbosa as his primary guards on the second unit. It may take an injury in order for Knight to rejoin the mix, but he likely wouldn't take on a meaningful enough role to deliver fantasy value outside of deeper formats. Look for the Suns to shop Knight throughout the offseason, though they may continue to struggle to find a suitor willing to commit to him through 2019-20, the final year of his contract.

Suns' Tyson Chandler: Falls out of rotation for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chandler (coach's decision) failed to see the floor in a 100-96 loss to the Bucks on Sunday.

After the Suns failed to trade Chandler at the deadline last week, he was dropped from the starting lineup in favor of Alex Len and has since been cast out of the rotation for the last two games. With the 18-41 Suns sitting in last place in the Western Conference standings, the team has little reason to give the 34-year-old minutes, so it wouldn't be surprising if Chandler remains third on the depth chart at center behind newly-appointed starter Alex Len and second-year backup Alan Williams. Chandler might be worth holding a little longer in deeper leagues in the event coach Earl Watson reverses course and brings the veteran back into the rotation, but those in shallow leagues can probably cut bait with Chandler without much hesitation.

Suns' Derrick Jones: Enters rotation for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones played 10 minutes in Sunday's 100-96 loss to the Bucks, finishing with two points (1-1 FG), one steal and one block.

Jones, an undrafted rookie best known for finish second in the Verizon Slam Dunk Contest over All-Star weekend, has received his first serious looks in the Suns rotation all season over the last two games. With the Suns trading away P.J. Tucker to the Raptors on Thursday, Jones has stepped in as the main backup to starting small forward T.J. Warren. At this point in the season, the rebuilding Suns, who check in at last place in the Western Conference, have little to lose by seeing what the athletic rookie can do, so Jones figures to stick in the rotation over the next few weeks. Even so, he'll likely struggle to see enough minutes behind Warren to consistently produce quality numbers.

Suns' Alan Williams: Fills up stat sheet in 34 minutes Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams totaled 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-3 FT), 15 rebounds, three assists, three steals, and one block in 34 minutes during Sunday's 100-96 loss to the Bucks.

Williams was solid in the first game back from the All-Star break on Friday, but Sunday's showing was easily the best performance of his career. Williams set career highs in scoring, assists, steals and minutes played, matched his career high in rebounding, and now has four double-doubles in 25 appearances during 2016-17. Given how many young players are on the Suns' roster, it's probably unrealistic to expect Williams to see such heavy minutes on a regular basis. Nevertheless, the 24-year-old forward has proven capable of contributing when given the opportunity, so keep an eye out for him in case this ends up becoming the new norm.
