Ayton's matchup Wednesday between the Suns and the Hawks has been postponed.

The Suns' next game is scheduled for Friday against the Warriors in Phoenix.
Ayton had just eight points (4-10 FG) and six rebounds in Monday's loss to the Wizards. It was an awful all-around game for Phoenix, which lost to a vastly inferior opponent for the second time in four nights. Ayton has now scored 14 points or fewer in four consecutive games, and he's attempted only four total free throws during that span. On the year, Ayton is averaging 12.5 points and 11.2 rebounds per game (30.2 MPG) -- down from 18.2 points and 11.5 boards a year ago (32.5 MPG).
Ayton scored 14 points (7-8 FG, 0-3 FT) while adding 12 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 37 minutes during Friday's 110-105 overtime loss to the Pistons. The 22-year-old center recorded his second straight double-double and fifth in nine games to begin the season. Ayton is also averaging a double-double, something he's done every year since he turned pro, but as yet his production hasn't taken any kind of big leap forward in his third NBA campaign.
