Ayton was back on the floor after resting the previous game, tallying 14 points in 17 minutes. He has looked good thus far and appears ready to continue where he left off last season. The only real flaw in his game at this stage is his lack of defensive numbers. If he can raise the bar, even a little, he could very well end the season inside the top-20.

Ayton picked up right where he left off during his 71-game rookie campaign, when he averaged an impressive 16.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists across 30.7 minutes per contest. The 2018 first overall pick will look to take a significant step forward this season and parlay his 7-foot-1 frame into even stronger numbers on the rebounding front, as well as into an uptick in blocks. Additionally, with the Suns also having addressed the point guard position with a strong facilitator in Ricky Rubio, Ayton could particularly see a bump in his scoring numbers.

Ayton suffered a left ankle sprain during Saturday's loss to the Grizzlies.

If that were to be the case, look for Dragan Bender and Ray Spalding to see a spike in minutes.
Ayton was ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's game against the Grizzlies with a left ankle sprain, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.
Ayton sustained the injury during the third quarter and needed assistance getting to the locker room.

Ayton produced another double-double Wednesday, ending the contest with 14 points and 10 rebounds.

Ayton has had a strong rookie campaign, averaging a double-double with 16.3 points and 10.2 rebounds per game. Monday's stat line was a result of game flow, and the 2018 number-one pick should be back to form when the Suns take on the Wizards on Wednesday.
Ayton logged 19 points (9-16 FG, 1-4 FT), 11 rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot across 29 minutes in Saturday's 112-103 loss to the Kings.
Ayton's double-double tied the Suns' franchise record for that category, a stellar achievement for the rookie. Ayton's excellent play in a losing campaign makes a strong argument for Rookie of the Year, although Luka Doncic still figures to be the front-runner at this juncture. The injury-riddled Suns will hobble through season's end with Ayton holding down the fort under the basket.
Ayton amassed 25 points (12-17 FG, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists, three steals, and three blocks in 35 minutes during Monday's 116-101 loss to Chicago.
Ayton assumed the role of defensive stopper Monday, compiling a career-best six combined steals and blocks. He added another double-double and continues to put together quite a rookie resume. Ayton saw a slight increase in playing time with Richaun Holmes (quad) missing a second straight game. There has been no indication the Suns will shut any player down over the closing weeks and Ayton should continue to flirt with top-30 value moving forward.
Ayton totaled eight points (4-7 FG), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 22 minutes in the Suns' win over the Pelicans on Saturday.
Ayton came up small in Saturday's win, though he wasn't needed with Devin Booker and Kelly Oubre combining for 72 points. Ayton's rookie season has had its share of ups and downs, but his play has been very encouraging, averaging 16.4 points and 10.4 rebounds as a 19-year old.
Ayton accumulated 17 points (7-14 FG, 3-4 FT), 14 rebounds, and one block in 32 minutes during Friday's 108-102 loss to the Rockets.
Ayton delivered his 35th double-double through 64 appearances but coughed up a career-worst seven turnovers. He had committed just three turnovers across the last six games, but Ayton struggled badly in terms of ball control in this one. Despite the giveaways, expect the rookie to remain aggressive across the final 12 games of 2018-19.
Ayton had just two points (1-9 FG), nine rebounds, two steals, and one block in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 114-97 loss to the Jazz.
Ayton had the worst game of his career Wednesday, scoring a season-low two points on 1-of-9 shooting. He was simply outmatched against Rudy Gobert, and never got going in what was a convincing loss. It is a tough pill for owners to swallow, especially as it comes in the midst of the fantasy playoffs. Things don't get any easier for the rookie as the Suns travel to Houston to face the Rockets on Friday.
Ayton provided 18 points (9-19 FG), nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 34 minutes in the Suns' 115-111 win over the Warriors on Sunday.
It was another typically strong night for the rookie, who's been remarkably consistent while validating his status as the first overall pick in last June's draft. The 20-year-old has scored at least 16 points in five of the first six games of March, and he's supplemented the offense with a pair of double-digit rebound efforts. Moreover, Ayton has pulled down no fewer than six rebounds in 16 consecutive games, making him a legitimate double-double threat any time he steps on the floor.
Ayton totaled 21 points (10-17 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, and one assist in 32 minutes during Saturday's 127-120 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Ayton hit 10 of his 17 field goal attempts Saturday, coming away with 21 points in 32 minutes. He has now shot at least 50 percent in every game since back on February 3. He has certainly not disappointed in his rookie season and needs only to increase his production on the defensive end to launch himself into top-25 consideration. Despite the Suns not going out of their way to win games, Ayton should remain a permanent fixture on the floor and finish the season strongly.
Ayton recorded 9 points (8-13 FG, 3-3 FT), 12 rebounds, three blocks and two steals across 34 minutes during Monday's win over the Bucks.
Ayton was extremely successful against the Bucks frontline, parlaying his 34 minutes into a plus-23 net rating. The rookie has been a consistent double-double threat throughout the season and has managed to contribute possibly on the defensive end, alleviating some of the concerns fantasy owners had coming into the season. Through 58 games, Ayton's managing 16.6 points, 10.4 rebonds, 1.9 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.9 blocks in 30.9 minutes per contest.
