  • Payton will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves. With Cameron Payne returning to the starting lineup after a one-game absence, Payton will shift back to a bench role. He's averaging 3.0 points, 2.0 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 11.2 minutes per game this season.

  • Payton recorded one point (0-3 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three steals over 18 minutes during Sunday's 127-124 overtime victory over the Kings. Payton didn't have a lot of involvement on offense and although the one-point stat line reads poorly, at least he managed to make his presence felt in other categories throughout a limited 18-minute appearance. It's worth noting he only started because Cameron Payne (illness) and Chris Paul (thumb) were absent, so Payton should head back to the bench sooner than later. His next chance to play will come Wednesday at Minnesota.

  • Payton will start Sunday's contest against the Kings, Gerald Bourguet of GoPHNX.com reports. With Camerson Payne (illness) sidelined, Payton will draw his first start of the season. Aaron Holiday is also expected to see an increased role off the bench, but Devin Booker will likely handle the majority of the offensive playmaking responsibilities.

  • Payton produced two points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and three assists over 14 minutes during Friday's 117-102 loss to the Pelicans. Payton logged just 14 minutes despite the fact the Suns were without their three primary point guard options. If nothing else, this indicates where Payton currently site in the team's pecking order. While he can have some limited value when handed sufficient playing time, it is hard to that happening based on Friday's performance.

  • Payton had 10 points (4-11 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, nine assists and one steal over 22 minutes during Saturday's 132-105 win over Orlando. The lopsided nature of the score allowed Payton to see his most playing time since Oct. 23, and he took advantage of the opportunity with his first double-digit scoring effort since late October. The veteran point guard finished with season-high single-game marks in both assists and rebounds to register his best performance of the campaign. Despite the strong effort, Payton isn't likely to see minutes beyond the teens most nights.
