Kaminsky will return to a reserve role in Friday's matchup with the Bulls, Gerald Bourquet of FanSided.com reports. Kaminsky has started ten of the Suns' previous 11 games. However, he saw his playing time decrease during that span. He will now be replaced in the starting lineup by Jae Crowder. The Wisconsin product will now come off the bench to help provide depth in the frontcourt.
Kaminsky is starting Friday's game against the Pelicans. Kaminsky didn't appear in Tuesday's loss to the Nets due to matchups, but he'll rejoin the starting five for Friday's matchup. He's averaging 8.8 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.8 assists over 22.5 minutes per game across his past six appearances.
Kaminsky, according to coach Monty Williams, didn't see the floor during Tuesday's loss to the Nets due to matchups, Gerald Bourquet of FanSided.com reports. Kaminsky exited the starting five Tuesday after getting six straight nods, and he ended up being a DNP-CD because of difficult matchups with the Nets. With the Suns healthier, Kaminsky's workload is set to be reduced anyway, so we shouldn't be surprised if more DNP-CDs are in store.
Kaminsky will come off the bench Tuesday versus Brooklyn, Gerald Bourquet of FanSided.com reports. The 27-year-old started the last six games but will head to the bench Tuesday with Jae Crowder rejoining the starting five. Kaminsky was seeing heavy playing time over his first few starts, but in the past two games he averaged 3.0 points and 4.5 rebounds in 15.0 minutes.
Kaminsky registered 14 points (4-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), eight rebounds and eight assists across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 125-124 win over the Bucks. Despite the return of Jae Crowder (knee) from a three-game absence, Kaminsky was able to retain a starting role alongside Deandre Ayton. Kaminsky actually ended up seeing his most playing time of the season, and he came through with a solid all-around stat line. The assist production from Wednesday doesn't look all that replicable for a player who averaged 2.3 dimes per game in his previous 12 games since re-entering Phoenix's rotation, but the points, rebounds and three-pointers aren't major outliers. So long as he continues to start, Kaminsky could be worthy of a back-end roster spot in 12-team leagues.
