Top Cameron Payne News

  • Suns' Cameron Payne: Returning to Phoenix

    Payne is returning to the Suns after agreeing to a three-year, $19 million deal, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

    In his second season with the Suns, Payne averaged 8.4 points, 3.6 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 18.0 minutes per game. The Murray State's 29-point, nine-assist performance during Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals almost guaranteed Payne a big raise come free agency, but it still remained likely that he would be returning to Phoenix. The Suns are expected to bring back Chris Paul as well so the 26-year-old is should retain the same role he had during the 2020-21 campaign.

  • Suns' Cameron Payne: Provides spark off bench

    Payne tallied 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt), one rebound and one steal in 17 minutes during Tuesday's 118-105 win over the Bucks.

    Payne scored in double figures in Game 1 of the Finals for the first time since his breakout 29-point performance in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals. The 26-year-old gives the Suns a jolt of energy every time he touches the court, but his role is likely to remain somewhat limited as long as Chris Paul is healthy.

  • Suns' Cameron Payne: Will play in Game 4

    As expected, after turning his left ankle in Game 3, Payne will return and play in Game 4 with the Suns up 2-1. In 13 playoff appearances, Payne has averaged 11.1 points, 3.7 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 21.2 minutes.

  • Suns' Cameron Payne: Walking 'fine', gets shots up

    Payne (ankle) was walking "fine" and was able to shoot during the Suns' light practice Friday, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.

    Payne suffered an ankle injury in Game 3 and played just four minutes, but it seems like he might be able to take the court in Game 4. For now, he should tentatively be considered questionable until the team formally updates his status.

  • Suns' Cameron Payne: Listed as probable

    Payne (ankle) is probable for Saturday's matchup with the Clippers, Kent Somers of The Arizona Somers reports.

    Payne was unable to return to Thursday's Game 3 loss to the Clippers after suffering an ankle injury just four minutes into his first stint in the game. However, it looks like the Suns may have just been erring on the side of caution, as he was able to participate in Friday's light practice and subsequently draw a probable designation. Still, final confirmation on his status is not expected to come until closer to tip-off.

  • Suns' Cameron Payne: Won't return to Game 3

    Payne (ankle) will not return to Game 3 against the Clippers on Thursday.

    Payne was available for just four minutes in Game 3 before he suffered an ankle injury that forced to limp to the locker room. It's unfortunate timing for the 26-year-old point guard, who had just had the game of his life in Game 2 when he went off for 29 points and nine assists.

  • Suns' Cameron Payne: Leaves Thursday's game

    Payne (leg) went to the locker room in the first half of Game 3 against the Clippers on Thursday, Kellan Olson of reports.

    It's unclear what exactly the injury is, but Payne appeared to hurt his leg after diving for a loose ball in the first half. He was limited to just four minutes of action in the first half, and it's unclear if he will be able to return to the game. Before leaving, Payne had posted two points on four field-goal attempts.

  • Suns' Cameron Payne: Set for move back to bench

    Payne will likely return to the bench for Thursday's Game 3 against the Clippers, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

    With Chris Paul set to make his return after missing Games 1 and 2, Payne will almost certainly head back to the reserve role that he's held for most of the season. Payne filled in admirably for the future Hall of Famer, going for 11 points and nine assists in Game 1 before breaking out with 29 points (12-24 FG), nine assists, two steals and two blocks in Tuesday's Game 2 victory. While Payne has played an integral part in the Suns' playoff run, he'll likely see his minutes drop back into the 15-to-20 range Thursday, assuming Paul isn't facing any restrictions.
