  • Monroe will come off the bench for Saturday's game against the Spurs, Craig Grialou of the Arizona Republic reports. Monroe has started the last two games in place of Tyson Chandler (personal), a stretch where he averaged a respectable 13.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.0 steals across 26.5 minutes. However, Chandler has been cleared to play and will rejoin the top unit, which sends Monroe back to the bench. With fellow reserve center Alex Len dealing with a knee injury, look for Monroe to take on the bulk of the backup minutes behind Chandler. That said, the uncertainty surrounding Monroe's exact role likely makes him someone to avoid Saturday for fantasy purposes.

  • Suns' Greg Monroe: Plays 27 minutes in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Monroe collected 15 points (6-7 FG, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Thursday's 109-99 loss to Washington. Monroe received an unexpected start Thursday, as Tyson Chandler (personal) was given the night off. The center rotation has been a bit of a mess over the past two weeks, however, Monroe has shown glimpses of what he can bring to a fantasy squad. There is still a lot of uncertainty moving forward, but he is worth stashing if you have some room on your bench.

  • Suns' Greg Monroe: Starting Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Monroe will get the start at center for Thursday's game against the Wizards, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports. It was reported earlier in the day that Monroe would come off the bench Thursday. However, Tyson Chandler has since been ruled out for personal reasons, so Monroe will get the starting nod. The big man should see a relatively healthy workload as a result.

  • Monroe will shift back to the bench for Thursday's game against the Wizards, Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic reports. Monroe picked up the start on Tuesday with Tyson Chandler sitting out for rest, posting a double-double with 11 points (3-4 FG, 5-6 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and three steals across 26 minutes. However, Chandler will be returning to the starting five Thursday, which means Monroe will head back to a bench role. With Alen Len also in the fold, coach Jay Triano indicated he could use all three centers Thursday with a 20, 20 and eight breakdown for minutes, but it's unclear exactly which workload Monroe would see. For that reason, he'll be very risky fantasy play for Thursday's slate.

  • Suns' Greg Monroe: Starting at center Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Monroe will draw the start at center for Tuesday's game against the Raptors, Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic reports. The Suns are contemplating sitting Tyson Chandler for rest Tuesday and Alex Len is currently a game-time decision with an ankle injury, so Monroe gets the call to join the top unit. Monroe should be in line for an increased workload while working with the starting five, especially if neither Chandler or Len are ultimately cleared to play. The Suns have rotated their big men with DNP-CDs over the last few weeks, which severely hurts the fantasy value of Monroe, who's been held out of two of the last four games for that exact reason. That said, Monroe should see plenty of playing time in Tuesday's start.
