Top Deandre Ayton News

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Shines with double-double in win

    Ayton posted 21 points (10-16 FG, 1-2 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 33 minutes during Monday's 115-111 victory over San Antonio.

    Ayton recorded his sixth double-double of the season, and his 33 minutes on the floor are a good indication that the recent lower leg injury that kept him out for over a week is no longer a concern.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Falls short of double-double

    Ayton logged 21 points (9-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal over 26 minutes during Sunday's 126-97 win over Denver.

    Ayton faded down the stretch but still put up a strong effort despite failing to crack double-digit rebounds for the first time in his last seven appearances. The Suns will take no chances with Ayton, as they are incredibly thin at center. He recently missed five games with a leg injury, and although he's looked to be in typical form since returning, coach Monty Williams will likely keep looking to get him extra rest when games are well in hand.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Pulls down 17 boards in victory

    Ayton closed with eight points (4-7 FG), 17 rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 29 minutes during Friday's 112-104 victory over the Mavericks.

    Ayton continues to play well since returning from a five-game injury absence, as he's now totaled 42 rebounds over his last three games alone. Prior to Friday, the big man had notched double-doubles in each of his last five games, so he looks to be moving in the right direction after a semi-slow start to the season. Over his last six appearances, Ayton is putting up 17.2 points, 14.3 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.7 blocks and shooting 65.8 percent from the floor. He's down to 57.9 percent at the free throw line for the season, however.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Posts double-double Wednesday

    Ayton mustered 19 points (9-13 FG, 1-3 FT), 13 rebounds, two assists and one block across 36 minutes during Wednesday's 105-98 win over the Mavericks.

    In Ayton's second game back following a five-game absence due to a leg injury, he posted his fifth straight double-double and led the Suns in rebounding. The fourth-year center has averaged a double-double in every season of his NBA career thus far, and he is on his way to replicating that feat this season. Through eight games, he is averaging 15.8 points and 11.6 boards per contest.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Looks great in return

    Ayton (lower leg) closed with 22 points (10-14 FG, 2-3 FT), 12 rebounds and one assist over 33 minutes during Monday's 99-96 win over the Timberwolves.

    After missing five games with a lower-leg injury, Ayton returned to the starting lineup and faced no limitations (33 minutes), despite being listed as questionable for most of the day. Ayton set a new season high in scoring and notched double-digit rebounds for the fifth time in seven appearances thus far. The Suns will keep an eye on how Ayton feels Tuesday, but there's no reason to believe he won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's home matchup against Dallas.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Good to go Monday

    Ayton (lower leg) is available for Monday's game at Minnesota, Gerald Bourquet of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Ayton missed the past five games with a bruised right lower leg, but he'll make his return to the court Monday. Coach Monty Williams said the 23-year-old won't have an official minutes restriction but still won't play his "normal allotment" of minutes.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Listed questionable at Minnesota

    Ayton (lower leg) is listed as questionable for Monday's game at Minnesota, Kellan Olson of AZSports reports.

    The big man had been listed as doubtful ahead of the last few games, so this appears to be a step in the right direction, but it would still be somewhat of a surprise if he's cleared to play on the second half of a back-to-back set. Ayton has missed six of the last seven games with a bruised lower leg, enabling JaVale McGee and Frank Kaminksy to absorb most of the minutes at center. If Ayton sits again Monday, expect McGee to make his sixth consecutive start.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Out again Sunday

    Ayton (lower leg) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rockets, Gerald Bourquet of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Ayton has now missed five consecutive games due to a lower right leg bruise, and while the Suns are seemingly viewing him as day-to-day, it's far from a given that he'll be ready to go when Phoenix kicks off a four-game Week 5 slate Monday in Minnesota. As for Sunday's game, JaVale McGee is expected to remain the Suns' starting center, while Frank Kaminsky will pick up extra run off the bench as McGee's backup.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Doubtful again

    Ayton (lower leg) is doubtful at Houston on Sunday, according to Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic.

    Ayton's availability was doubtful before the Suns' previous three games. Considering he sat out during all of them, his fantasy managers should not be surprised if that happens again Sunday.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Out vs. Memphis

    Ayton (lower leg) is out Friday against the Grizzlies, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    As expected, the center will sit out a fourth straight game. JaVale McGee and Frank Kaminsky should continue seeing extra run.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Unlikely to play Friday

    Ayton (lower leg) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Ayton has missed the last three games due to a lower leg injury, and he's trending toward a fourth consecutive absence. JaVale McGee and Frank Kaminsky should see additional work if Ayton is ultimately held out.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Ruled out Wednesday

    Ayton (lower leg) will remain out for Wednesday's game against the Blazers, Kellan Olson of Empire of the Suns reports.

    This will be the fourth absence in five games -- and third straight -- for the big man, who continues to nurse a bruised lower right leg. The fact that he's already ruled out well in advance of Wednesday's game isn't the most encouraging sign, but the Suns will likely continue to handle his status on a game-by-game basis. Expect JaVale McGee and Frank Kaminsky to once again absorb most of the minutes at center.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Listed out for Monday

    Ayton (lower leg) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Kings.

    Ayton was listed as doubtful on the initial injury report, so it's not terribly surprising that he's now been ruled out for the second time in the last three games. JaVale McGee started in each of Ayton's previous absences, so that will likely be the case again Monday.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Doubtful Monday

    Ayton (lower leg) did not practice Sunday and is looking unlikely to play Monday against the Kings, Gerald Bourquet of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Ayton is set to miss his second straight game and his third over his last four contests due to a lower right leg bruise. With him likely out, JaVale McGee should be in line to start again while Frank Kaminsky should also continue to see a higher-leverage role off the bench.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Out Saturday

    Ayton (lower leg) is out Saturday against the Hawks, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    Ayton was initially not on the injury report, but he'll sit out Saturday with the right leg bruise that forced him out two games ago. In his absence, Frank Kaminsky and JaVale McGee should see more prominent roles.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Registers double-double in return

    Ayton tallied 16 points (8-17 FG), 11 rebounds, one steal and one blocked shot over 26 minutes against Houston in a 123-111 victory Thursday.

    The Suns' starting center missed Tuesday's contest due to a lower leg injury, but he was quite active in his return to the lineup Thursday. Notably, he put up a season-high 17 shots and pulled down 11 boards to collect his third straight double-double. Ayton is averaging 14.2 points, 11.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game on the campaign.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Starting vs. Rockets

    Ayton (lower leg) is starting Thursday against the Rockets.

    Considering Ayton was activated to play Thursday, fantasy managers should not be surprised he is starting. He will play at least 30 minutes if fouls and injuries aren't a concern.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Officially active

    Ayton (lower leg) will play Thursday night against the Rockets, Gerald Bourquet of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Ayton came in questionable after exiting last Saturday's game with a right leg contusion. The 6-foot-11 big man missed Tuesday's contest but will return after a one-game absence. Ayton is averaging 13.8 points, 11.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.4 steals in 29.8 minutes per game this season, and should be back to his usual role unless the game gets out of hand.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Questionable Thursday

    Ayton (lower leg) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Rockets, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Ayton was forced to miss Tuesday's game against the Pelicans due to a right leg contusion and his status for Thursday's game is questionable at this time. If he can't go, JaVale McGee and Frank Kaminsky would likely see increased minutes at center for the Suns.
