Suns' Deandre Ayton: Out again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayton (ankle) will remain sidelined for Tuesday's tilt against the Trail Blazers, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

Ayton made it through shootaround and indicated he hoped to play Tuesday, but that ultimately will not be the case. The Suns do not play again until Saturday, so he will have another three days off to recover. As a result, Aron Baynes and Dario Saric figure to again see increased workloads.

Suns' Deandre Ayton: Hopes to play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayton (ankle) went through shootaround Tuesday morning, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports. "We'll see how he feels tonight," coach Monty Williams said of Ayton. "Hopefully he can go."

The big man has already missed the last two games, but he looks to be trending in the right direction as Tuesday's game approaches. The Suns will likely wait until closer to game time to issue an update on his status.

Suns' Deandre Ayton: Questionable for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayton (ankle) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Portland, Jamie Goldberg of The Oregonian reports.

Ayton is in danger of missing his third straight contest due to a left ankle sprain, but the team likely won't have more on his status until closer to tipoff. Aron Baynes should continue to start at center if Ayton can't go.

Suns' Deandre Ayton: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayton (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Bucks, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

Ayton missed Friday's game against the Blazers with a left ankle issue and will miss at least one more game. His expected return date is not yet clear, though he was at least able to participate in the non-contact portion of Thursday's practice. Aron Baynes started in his absence Friday and will likely do so again Sunday.

Suns' Deandre Ayton: Won't play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayton (ankle) is out Friday against the Trail Blazers, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

As expected, Ayton will sit out as he heals from a left ankle injury. In his place, Aron Baynes and Cheick Diallo should see expanded roles.

Suns' Deandre Ayton: Doubtful Friday vs. Blazers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayton (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game against the Trail Blazers.

Ayton was able to go through non-contact portions of Thursday's practice, but that's probably not enough progress for him to take the court as soon as Friday. In his presumed absence, Aron Baynes and Cheick Diallo should see extra minutes.

Suns' Deandre Ayton: Does non-contact work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Monty Williams said Ayton (ankle) participated in non-contact portions of Thursday's practice, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

This is certainly an encouraging development for Ayton, who underwent an MRI on his left ankle Wednesday. While the test results are not yet known, leaving the big man without a firm timetable for his return, it's worth noting that Williams said he "for sure" expects Ayton back this season. That said, Ayton seems unlikely to be available for Friday's game against Portland.

Suns' Deandre Ayton: Undergoes MRI on ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayton underwent an MRI on Wednesday after suffering a left ankle injury late in Tuesday's 123-114 loss to the Raptors, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports. He finished the contest with 13 points (5-14 FG, 3-4 FT), 14 rebounds, three blocks, one steal and one assist across 39 minutes.

Ayton appeared to be in significant pain late in the fourth quarter, when Toronto's OG Anunoby fell on his leg. According to Gina Mizell of The Athletic, Ayton was sporting crutches in the Suns' locker room after the game, though coach Monty Williams said Wednesday the center will now be confined to a walking boot. The Suns likely won't put a firm timeline on Ayton's return until the MRI results are available, but he seems unlikely to be available for the team's next game Friday versus the Trail Blazers.

Suns' Deandre Ayton: Dials up double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayton posted 13 points (5-14 FG, 3-4 FT), 14 rebounds, three blocks, one assist and one steal in 38 minutes during Tuesday's loss to Toronto.

Despite an errant shooting night, Ayton managed to record his 20th double-double of the year. The 21-year-old has stepped up his game in his second professional season and has increased his output across the board. Overall, he's averaging 19.0 points, 12.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.7 blocks in 33.2 minutes per game.

Suns' Deandre Ayton: Good to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayton (hip) is starting Saturday's game versus the Warriors.

Ayton is dealing with a sore hip and was questionable for Saturday's contest, but the issue won't prevent him from suiting up. The 21-year-old is averaging 21.2 points, 12.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.8 blocks in 32.6 minutes over the last five games.

February 29, 2020 02:56 PM
Suns' Deandre Ayton: Deemed questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayton is considered questionable for Saturday's game against Golden State due to a sore hip, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

Ayton picked up the hip issue during Friday's tilt with Detroit, though he recorded 20 points and 10 rebounds and was able to play 35 minutes in the contest. Presumably, the second-year center's availability will be determined based on how he feels during pregame warmups. Look for the team to provide an update on Ayton's status closer to tipoff.

Suns' Deandre Ayton: Another double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayton chipped in with 25 points (11-22 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 17 rebounds and three blocks in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 102-92 loss to the Clippers.

Ayton has double-doubles in seven of nine February contests so far, and he has grabbed 15 or more boards four times already, including in two of his last three contests. He has settled himself as one of Phoenix's go-to players on offense and has looked impressive during the current month, averaging 21.9 points and 13.2 rebounds while shooting 56.5 percent from the field in nine games.

Suns' Deandre Ayton: Solid in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayton provided 16 points (8-9 FG), five rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes during Monday's 131-111 win over Utah.

The combination of Aron Baynes seeing an uptick in run against Rudy Gobert, a potentially lingering ankle injury and the Suns pulling away in the second half capped Ayton's ceiling. It may have come as a harsh reality check to Ayton shareholders, as his strong double-double streak came to an end. However, the reality may be extrapolated when the stingy, "time is now" Clippers come to Phoenix on Wednesday --- presenting a tough matchup on paper for Ayton.

Suns' Deandre Ayton: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayton (ankle) is starting Monday's game against the Jazz.

Ayton was deemed probable for Monday's clash due to an ankle issue, and as expected, he's been given the green light. He's averaging 22.3 points and 13.9 rebounds over seven contests in February.

Suns' Deandre Ayton: Deemed probable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayton (ankle) is probable for Monday's contest against Utah, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

Ayton's name has appeared numerous times on the injury report lately due to an ankle injury, though the center has played in each of the last two matchups. Barring any major setbacks prior to tipoff, Ayton will presumably resume a normal workload Monday in Utah.

Suns' Deandre Ayton: Posts double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayton racked up 28 points (12-20 FG, 4-5 FT), 19 rebounds, three blocks and one assist in 35 minutes during Saturday's 112-104 win at the Bulls.

Ayton missed Phoenix's last two games before the All-Star break, but he has proven to be healthy while notching double-doubles in back-to-back performances on the road. The second-year center remains an absolute stud, averaging 22.3 points with 13.9 rebounds in seven February contests while delivering six double-doubles during that stretch.

Ayton was considered probable after putting up 17 points and 10 rebounds Friday in Toronto, and he'll be available as expected Saturday. He'll take his usual place in the starting lineup and won't face a minutes restriction.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The second-year center looked 100 percent after missing the last two games before the All-Star break with a minor ankle injury. Ayton now has five double-doubles through six games in February, and 16 in 24 games on the season.

February 21, 2020 06:32 PM
