Okobo posted 15 points (6-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two assists, one rebound and one block across 25 minutes in the Suns' 118-97 loss to the Jazz on Wednesday. Okobo drew another start and saw extended opportunity when Devin Booker was forced out of the game after only logging eight minutes due to an ankle issue. The 21-year-old's scoring tally was his highest since Nov. 28, with the elevated usage he saw as a result of Booker's exit and Deandre Ayton's (ankle) absence playing a significant role in his spike. With both players potentially sidelined for a favorable matchup against the Pelicans on Friday, Okobo could make for a sneaky play in daily leagues in particular.
Okobo is starting Monday's game against the Cavaliers. Okobo will join the starting lineup after scoring just three points in three of his previous four contests. De'Anthony Melton will come off the bench as a result.
Okobo has been recalled from the G League ahead of Friday's contest against the Rockets. With Tyler Johnson (knee) sitting out Friday's game, Okobo will provide some extra point guard depth. In 44 games this season, Okobo is averaging 5.5 points, 2.5 assists and 1.8 rebounds across 17.8 minutes.
Okobo was assigned to the G League on Thursday. Okobo continues to bounce back and forth between the NBA and the G League. He'll presumably do so for the remainder of the year, save for an injury in the Suns' backcourt.
Okobo was recalled from the G League on Wednesday, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports. Since the acquisition of Tyler Johnson, Okobo's role has diminished. Though he's been called up, it's doubtful he sees significant time in Wednesday's contest against the Jazz.
