Top Deandre Ayton News

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Remains out Wednesday

    Ayton won't play in Wednesday's game versus the Lakers due to a hip injury, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Ayton will miss a second straight, although his injury has gone from being listed as a groin issue to his hip. Bismack Biyombo started against the Thunder in his absence. Ayton's next chance to suit up is Friday's matchup with Sacramento.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Won't play Sunday

    Ayton (groin) is out for Sunday's matchup against the Thunder, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Ayton suffered a groin injury during Thursday's win over the Magic, which will cause him to miss his first game since Jan. 23. In his absence, Jock Landale, Bismack Biyombo and Darius Bazley are candidates for extra minutes.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Plays through groin issue

    Ayton was walking with a limp in the locker room after he suffered a right groin injury late in Thursday's win over the Magic, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    The 24-year-old played through the injury down the stretch during Thursday's victory and finished with 16 points (6-12 FG, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds and one block in 35 minutes. It doesn't appear to be a serious injury, and Ayton will have a couple of days to rest up ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Thunder.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Stifled by Bucks D

    Ayton finished with 16 points (8-19 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and eight rebounds in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 116-104 loss to Milwaukee.

    Ayton struggled in the loss, as Brook Lopez and Giannis Antetokounmpo dominated the interior throughout the game. Despite five double-doubles since the All-Star break, Ayton's production has been spotty at times, but the addition of Kevin Durant (ankle) should help the Arizona product's bottom line. In the meantime, Ayton should be able to manage decent stat lines, but his production will still lag behind the elite centers of the league without Durant's help.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Records double-double in loss

    Ayton amassed 27 points (13-19 FG, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist and one steal across 35 minutes during Monday's 123-112 loss to the Warriors.

    Ayton and Devin Booker carried the load on offense for Phoenix on Monday, as they were the only players on the team to score over 11 points. Ayton was very efficient with his field-goal tries, going 13-for-19. This was the big man's second straight double-double and his 34th such performance of the campaign.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Logs 22-12 double-double

    Ayton supplied 22 points (9-15 FG, 4-5 FT), 12 rebounds, two blocks and two steals across 37 minutes during Saturday's 128-119 loss to the Kings.

    Though his workload was limited in the Suns' first game without Kevin Durant (ankle) in Thursday's 132-101 blowout win over the Thunder, Ayton displayed what kind of production he's capable of providing sans Durant in a more competitive contest. While Josh Okogie, Terrence Ross and Torrey Craig are likely to benefit the most from a playing-time standpoint while Durant is out, Ayton and Chris Paul should absorb most of Durant's vacated usage while stepping up as secondary scorers behind Devin Booker.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Big day on glass

    Ayton ended Sunday's 130-126 victory over the Mavericks with nine points (4-6 FG, 1-2 FT), 16 rebounds, one block and one steal in 34 minutes.

    The fifth-year center banged up his knee in Friday's win over the Bulls, but he seemed healthy Sunday, although he left the scoring up to Kevin Durant and Devin Booker and focused his attention on dominating the glass. Ayton has grabbed 16 boards twice in three games since Durant made his Phoenix debut, and he's pulled down double-digit rebounds nine times in his last 12 games.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Will play Sunday

    Ayton (knee) has been upgraded to available and will play Sunday against the Mavericks.

    Ayton was tabbed as a game-time decision before Sunday's contest, but he recovered in time and should start at center. Ayton played just 27 minutes Friday against the Bulls but should be fine for this one. He's averaging 20.9 points and 10.1 rebounds per game since the start of February.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Questionable at Dallas

    Ayton (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Mavericks, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Ayton had a muted outing in the Suns' blowout win over the Bulls on Friday, and the center failed to practice Saturday. If he misses his first game since Jan. 24, Jock Landale and Bismack Biyombo would see more run.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Doesn't practice Saturday

    Ayton did not practice Saturday due to a knee injury, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Ayton is getting treatment on his knee, and the medical staff is gathering more information before determining the center's status for Sunday's game at Dallas. Ayton played 27 minutes during Friday's 125-104 win over the Bulls, producing just seven points, three rebounds and one steal.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Third straight double-double in win

    Ayton notched 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-2 FT), 16 rebounds, four assists and one block in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 105-91 victory over the Hornets.

    Ayton recorded his third straight double-double and fifth in his last six games. His fantasy production has been a lot more consistent over the past few months. In fact, he hasn't gone two games in a row without double-digit rebounds since the beginning of January. However, his usage is likely to take a hit now that Kevin Durant is on the floor with the team. The young center attempted only 10 shots Wednesday night (his fewest since December), and that might be a good indication of his role in this new-look offense for the rest of the season.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Top rebounder in double-double game

    Ayton supplied 22 points (11-21 FG), 11 rebounds and three blocks over 35 minutes during Sunday's 104-101 loss to Milwaukee.

    Ayton led Phoenix in rebounds and blocks while finishing as one of two players to score 20 or more points in Sunday's loss. Ayton has tallied 20 or more points with 10 or more rebounds in 17 outings this year, including in three of his last five games.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Records double-double

    Ayton chipped in 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocks and one steal over 31 minutes during Friday's 124-115 victory over the Thunder.

    Ayton didn't have his most efficient performance from the field, but he still ended with a double-double and contributed on both ends of the court as Phoenix marched its way to victory. Ayton has six double-doubles in nine February outings and is averaging 22.9 points with 10.1 rebounds per game this month.
