Ayton's matchup Wednesday between the Suns and the Hawks has been postponed.
As has been the case multiple times this season, at least one of the two teams does not have the required eight available players for the game to be played. 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.
Ayton had 11 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3PT, 1-1 FT) and 16 boards in Wednesday's win over Toronto.
It was the fourth double-double of the season for Ayton, who's off to a relatively quiet yet effective start to the 2020-21 campaign. The big man struggled with foul trouble again Wednesday, but more concerningly he only got to the free throw line once. Ayton has attempted two or fewer free throws in five of eight games thus far.
Ayton finished with 24 points (9-12 FG, 6-7 FT), eight boards, two assists, and one steal in 30 minutes of a 112-107 loss to the Clippers on Sunday.
Ayton fell just short of recording his fourth double-double of the season while finishing second on his team in points. The third-year vet is off to a hot start in 2021, scoring more than 20 points while shooting at least 75 percent from the field in his last two games. He'll next face the Raptors on Wednesday.
Ayton scored 22 points (10-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and grabbed 11 rebounds while swatting a pair of shots in a win over the Nuggets on Friday.
After producing only four points against Rudy Gobert and the Jazz on Thursday, Ayton bounced back with a season-high 22 points while making 10 of 13 shots from the field in Friday's victory. He also collected 11 boards to register his third double-double in his last four contests.
Ayton had four points (2-8 FG), nine rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 28 minutes during Thursday's 106-95 win over Utah.
The 22-year-old averaged 11.5 points and 11.8 rebounds through the first four games of the season, but he wasn't a significant factor in the offense Thursday. Ayton's scoring numbers are down significantly early in the 2020-21 campaign (10.0 PPG) after he averaged 17.0 points across his first two NBA seasons.
Ayton recorded 13 points (6-11 FG, 101 FT), 12 rebounds and a blocked shot across 26 minutes in Tuesday's 111-86 win over the Pelicans.
Ayton picked up the slack inside on a night where Devin Booker and Chris Paul were uncharacteristically absent offensively. Even with the offensive deficiencies, the Suns still beat the Pelicans handily, which is a testament to Phoenix's depth throughout the roster. Expectations are high for Ayton in his third season, and he's expected to average a double-double as he did in his two previous seasons in the league.
Ayton had 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt), 15 rebounds and four assists in Sunday's win against the Kings.
Foul trouble forced Ayton to play just 24 minutes in his season debut, but he fared much better during Phoenix's two-game set at Sacramento. The center averaged 10.0 points, 13.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists across 29.5 minutes.
Ayton scored nine points (3-5 FG, 3-5 FT) to go with 12 rebounds, two assists, a block and two turnovers in 30 minutes of Saturday's 106-103 loss to Sacramento.
Ayton was efficient from the floor, but he didn't see a ton of volume as he finished one point shy of a double-double. The big man did lead the Suns with 12 rebounds, but his scoring may take a bit of a hit this year with the addition of Chris Paul to the roster.
Ayton tallied 12 points (6-9 FG) and six rebounds over 27 minutes in a loss to the Lakers on Friday.
Ayton's performance was more subdued than in Wednesday's meeting between the same squads during which he produced 21 points, nine boards and four steals, but he nonetheless tied for second on the team with both his 12 points and six rebounds. The center should continue to be a nightly double-double threat in his third season in the league, which officially begins Wednesday versus Dallas.
Ayton had 21 points (8-10 FG, 5-5 FT), nine rebounds, four steals and an assist in a 112-107 preseason loss versus the Lakers on Wednesday.
Ayton made all of his shots in the first and third quarters, seven of which were from the paint. Performances like these will be consistently demanded from the center, especially with All-Star guards Devin Booker and Chris Paul solidifying Phoenix's backcourt.
Ayton compiled11 points (5-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 14 rebounds and three assists across 22 minutes in Saturday's 119-105 loss to the Jazz,
It's a pivotal season for Ayton. An otherwise encouraging beginning was mired by a 25-game suspension in his sophomore season. To rise to the top echelon of big men, he needs to stay out of trouble and remain healthy. When he's dialed in, he's an All-Star in the making, and one look at his numbers in the Orlando bubble is all the evidence you need. He averaged 15 points and 9.5 rebounds over eight games in the bubble, and during the regular season, he often exceeded these numbers. With Chris Paul now directing the offense, Ayton has all the tools for a breakout year.
Ayton notched eight points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt), 12 rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes during Tuesday's win over the 76ers.
Ayton returned to the starting lineup, and while he failed to score in double digits for the second time in seven bubble games, he grabbed 12 boards for the third time since the league resumed. Ayton didn't start Monday after missing a mandatory COVID-19 test, but after returning to the starting unit Tuesday, he should remain in this role as he's been one of Phoenix's most important, consistent players all season long.
Ayton is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Sixers.
Ayton did not start Monday's game after missing a mandatory COVID-19 test, but he joined the team late and ended up playing 17 minutes off the bench. As the Suns fight for the eighth seed, Ayton will be back at his usual center spot against a Sixers team that's without Al Horford, Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Josh Richardson and Tobias Harris.
Ayton finished Monday's game against the Thunder with 10 points (5-10 FG) and six rebounds in 17 minutes.
Ayton arrived late to the game after missing a COVID-19 test, but he started the second quarter and gave the Suns a solid effort off the bench. In Ayton's 17 minutes, the Suns outscored the Thunder by 22 points.
Ayton was on the floor to begin the second quarter of Monday's game against the Thunder.
It was a whirlwind start to the day for Ayton, who missed his COVID-19 test Sunday and had to pass another test Monday morning before being cleared to play. He arrived late to the arena and warmed up on a stationary bike before entering the game to begin the second period.
Ayton has arrived at the arena and is riding a stationary bike to warm up for Monday's game against the Thunder, Duane Rankin of AZCentral reports.
A late arrival after missing a COVID-19 test, Ayton rushed to the arena after taking and passing another test Monday morning. The Suns started Dario Saric in his place, but Ayton is dressed and available should coach Monty Williams call his number. The No. 1 pick in 2018 is coming off of a pair of double-doubles in his last two games, including a 23-point, 10-rebound, four-block performance in a win over the Pacers on Thursday.
