Suns' Jamal Crawford: Questionable Thursday
Crawford (knee) is questionable Thursday against the Raptors.
The veteran has missed three straight games while nursing a sore left knee, and it's unclear if he'll make his return Thursday. More information may arrive following morning shootaround.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Quincy Acy: Earns second 10-day deal
Acy inked a second 10-day contract on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Acy made his Suns debut Jan. 8 against the Kings and, since then, has totaled one point, one rebound and one steal across 35 minutes. Despite the lack of box score stats, Phoenix seems to be satisfied with his overall contributions, bringing him back for another 10 days.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Richaun Holmes: Drops 13 points Tuesday
Holmes registered 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one block across 19 minutes in Tuesday's 131-97 loss to the Pacers.
Holmes continues to be an offensive weapon for the Suns off the bench, providing an average of 12.9 points over his last seven games in under 20 minutes of run. Holmes will look to produce more rebounds in an attempt to earn more minutes in the paint with the forwards.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Kelly Oubre: Leads bench in scoring Tuesday
Oubre recorded 16 points (7-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-6 FT), five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 24 minutes in Tuesday's 131-97 loss to the Pacers.
Oubre stayed hot from the bench in Tuesday's game, registering his fourth-straight game with double-digit points on the night. His line could have been better if he made more threes or even shot with greater efficiency from the charity stripe, but the showing was encouraging nonetheless for future outlook.... See More ...

Suns' Deandre Ayton: Flirts with double-double Tuesday
Ayton tallied 14 points (7-16 FG, 0-2 FT), eight rebounds, one steal and one block across 29 minutes in Tuesday's 131-97 loss to the Pacers.
Ayton shot well from the floor Tuesday night, but the offense in general did not have many strong showings which led to a blowout loss. Even still, Ayton is a clear focal point in the paint for the Suns, and should be treated as a nightly double-double threat going forward.... See More ... See Less
Suns' T.J. Warren: Leads team with 18 points
Warren totaled 18 points (7-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 31 minutes in Tuesday's 131-97 loss to the Pacers.
The game was no where close the entire time, as the Pacers ran with the lead most of the way. Warren was one of the few bright spots for the Suns, shooting nearly 50 percent and getting back on track after posting 20-point outings in four of his previous five contests.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Josh Jackson: Returns to bench
Jackson will come off the bench Tuesday against the Pacers.
With Devin Booker (back) returning to the starting five, Jackson will resume his usual role off the pine. As a reserve, the sophomore is averaging 9.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 20.3 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Devin Booker: Starting Tuesday
Booker (back), as expected, will return to the starting five Tuesday against the Pacers, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.
News had previously come through that Booker was cleared to play, but it wasn't officially confirmed that he'd be back in the starting five. The move will presumably push Josh Jackson back to the bench.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Jamal Crawford: Will not play Tuesday
Crawford has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Pacers due to a sore left knee, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.
Crawford missed Saturday's win over the Nuggets due to personal reasons, but he is now back on the injury report with some knee troubles. There's been nothing to suggest that it is anything serious for the veteran, so the Suns are likely just being cautious.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Jamal Crawford: No longer on injury report
Crawford (personal) is no longer listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game against the Pacers.
It sounds like Crawford will be available for Tuesday's game after missing Saturday's contest for personal reasons. Through 37 games this season, the veteran guard is averaging 6.5 points, 3.2 assists and 1.2 rebounds in 17.2 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Devin Booker: Will return Tuesday
Booker (back) will make his return to action Tuesday at Indiana, Bob Young of The Athletic reports.
Booker, who has missed the last three games due to back spasms, will be available to play when the Suns travel to Indiana on Tuesday. In addition, coach Igor Kokoskov said Booker's minutes will not be restricted, as it appears as though the Kentucky product has made a full recovery. Booker will presumably slide back into the starting rotation Tuesday and, as a result, push teammate Josh Jackson to the bench.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Devin Booker: Practices Monday
Booker (back) practiced Monday, Bob Young of The Athletic reports.
Booker has missed the last three games due to lingering back spasms but was a full participant in Monday's team practice and it appears likely that the former first-round pick will make his return sometime this week. An update regarding Booker's status for Tuesday's contest at Indiana should surface soon.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Josh Jackson: Another impressive performance in win
Jackson tallied 15 points (6-18 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, four rebounds, one steal, and one block in 31 minutes during Saturday's 102-93 victory over Phoenix.
Jackson scored in double-digits for the sixth straight game Saturday, continuing to fill in admirably for the injured Devin Booker (back). Jackson's numbers across the six games have been impressive across the board, even shooting the ball well, aside from this most recent performance. His role upon Bookers return will likely reduce but he has certainly done enough to warrant additional playing time moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Suns' De'Anthony Melton: Career-high 10 dimes Saturday
Melton totaled two points (0-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 assists, four steals, three rebounds, and one block in 32 minutes during Saturday's 102-93 victory over the Suns.
Melton dished out a career-high 10 assists Saturday, also notching four steals for the second time in his last three games. The offense continues to be an issue for the rookie but he certainly compensates with his contributions across the board. He has established himself as the teams' primary facilitator in Booker's absence and it will be interesting to see what happens when he returns.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Kelly Oubre: Big night in victory
Oubre ended with 26 points (9-17 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals, and one block in 30 minutes during Saturday's 102-93 victory over Denver.
Oubre matched his career-high with 26 points Saturday, chipping in with contributions across the board. The double-double was his first of the season and it appears he is getting more comfortable with his new team. He has scored in double-digits in three straight games but these numbers have come with Devin Booker (back) on the sidelines. Oubre is fine to roster in 12-team formats but as soon as Booker returns, the production could take a hit.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Deandre Ayton: Bounces back Saturday
Ayton finished with 22 points (9-18 FG, 4-6 FT), 13 rebounds, and three blocks in 30 minutes during Saturday's 102-93 victory over the Nuggets.
After a poor showing Wednesday against the Mavericks, Ayton bounced back with a big double-double including matching his career-high with three blocks. Ayton has now blocked at least one shot in five straight games, in what is hopefully an indication the defense is coming on. The points and boards are typically there on a nightly basis so any addition to his game certainly rounds out his value nicely.... See More ... See Less
