Suns' T.J. Warren: Decent all-around showing
Warren posted 16 points (6-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and recorded three rebounds along with two blocks and a steal across 34 minutes Saturday against the Hornets.
Warren has pieced together steady scoring production of late, finishing in double figures in seven of his previous eight contests. He's also managed to add fantasy value across the board, proving effective in the rebounding department and on the defensive end of the court in the steals column. The North Carolina product figures to continue to see plenty of opportunities to do damage, especially seeing as he's started each of his squad's last 21 games.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Kelly Oubre: Drops 24 points off bench
Oubre totaled 24 points (9-15 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, an assist, two blocks and a steal over 30 minutes Saturday against Charlotte.
Oubre has been a productive choice in most fantasy leagues of late, averaging 19.6 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.0 block and 1.2 steals over his previous five contests. Despite his current bench role, he'll be worth keeping an eye on given his 26.1 minutes per game average through 45 matchups this season.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Devin Booker: Posts another 30-point outing
Booker scored 32 points (10-23 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 10-12 FT) and registered two rebounds along with 11 assists across 38 minutes Saturday against the Hornets.
Booker pieced together yet another impressive outing, but it wasn't enough to give the Suns a victory. Despite back-to-back stellar scoring outputs, Booker's squad is 0-2 over that brief stretch. He's off to an excellent start to the month of January, averaging 22.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 6.5 assists over six contests.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Jamal Crawford: Questionable for Sunday
Crawford (knee) is considered questionable for Sunday's game at Minnestoa, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.
Crawford has been battling the knee issue over the last week and has missed four straight games, though one of those absences was due to a personal matter. The 38-year-old is averaging 6.5 points and 3.2 assists in 17.2 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Richaun Holmes: Sprains foot, leaves Saturday
Holmes left Saturday's contest against the Hornets due to a sprained left foot, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.
Considering Holmes was ruled out in the fourth quarter of a blowout, it's hard to gauge exactly how serious the injury is. We may learn more following the contest. He should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Timberwolves.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Deandre Ayton: Exits with sprained ankle
Ayton left Saturday's game against the Hornets due to a sprained left ankle, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.
Ayton's departure may not signal anything serious, as the game was out of hand in Charlotte's favor when the big man left. Still, Ayton should be considered questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Timberwolves.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Jamal Crawford: Out Saturday
Crawford (knee) remains out Saturday against the Hornets, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.
Crawford is set to miss a fifth straight contest while nursing left knee soreness. It's possible he makes his return Sunday against Minnesota.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Jamal Crawford: Questionable Saturday
Crawford (knee) is questionable for Saturday's matchup against Charlotte, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.
Crawford, who has been sidelined since Jan. 8 due to a knee injury and personal reasons, will presumably be a game-time call for Saturday's contest against the Hornets. The veteran guard is currently averaging 17.2 minutes, 6.5 points and 3.2 assists as a 38-year-old.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Elie Okobo: Settling in as second-unit player
Okobo played 16 minutes and contributed eight points (2-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two steals and one rebound across 16 minutes Thursday in the Suns' 111-109 loss to the Raptors.
De'Anthony Melton remains locked in as the starter at guard alongside Devin Booker, but Okobo has essentially split playing time with his fellow rookie since re-entering the Phoenix rotation four games ago. Over that span, Okobo is averaging 19.0 minutes per game to Melton's 23.8. That's not quite enough run for the Frenchman to make for a reliable fantasy option, and Okobo's playing time could take a hit once Jamal Crawford (knee) is cleared to play again.... See More ...

Suns' Ryan Anderson: Still outside rotation
Anderson (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Thursday in the Suns' 111-109 loss to the Raptors.
It's hardly shocking that Anderson was excluded from the rotation in a close contest, as that's been standard since early November. Anderson has seen action in only four of the Suns' past 35 games and will need a trade to recoup any kind of fantasy value. With a season and a half still remaining on Anderson's four-year, $80 million contract, he probably won't have a robust market as the Feb. 7 trade deadline approaches.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Deandre Ayton: Puts up well-rounded line
Ayton tallied 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-4 FT), 17 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks across 35 minutes Thursday in the Suns' 111-109 loss to the Raptors.
While this was a stellar line for Ayton, it was still somewhat frustrating that the Suns didn't feature him more prominently on the offensive end in the second half. All eight of Ayton's shot attempts came in the first two quarters, with the big man's only points after the break coming on free throws. Though Ayton's production remains somewhat spotty from game to game, he's still been excellent on the whole in January, averaging 14.4 points, 10.0 boards, 1.5 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 steal in 29.5 minutes per contest while shooting 53.9 percent from the field and 76 percent from the charity stripe....

Suns' Kelly Oubre: Stays hot off bench
Oubre supplied 18 points (3-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 11-13 FT), nine boards, one assist and one steal across 30 minutes Thursday in the Suns' 111-109 loss to the Raptors.
Oubre has settled in nicely of late as the Suns' sixth man, averaging 20.0 points (on 45.9 percent shooting from the field), 6.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.8 three-pointers and 0.8 blocks in 29.4 minutes per contest over the last five games. Perhaps most encouragingly, Oubre hasn't lost out on any volume with star Devin Booker returning from a back injury to play the past two games. Oubre warrants at least a cursory look in most formats while he's exhibiting this kind of form.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Mikal Bridges: Contributes offensively Thursday
Bridges provided 15 points (5-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one block across 30 minutes Thursday in the Suns' 111-109 loss to the Raptors.
It was only the second double-digit scoring performance in nine games for the rookie, who has provided most of his value on the defensive end this season. He's boosted his steals and blocks to 1.4 and 0.9 per game, respectively, in January, figures that could be relatively sustainable now that he's seemingly secured a high-minute starting role....

Suns' Devin Booker: Bounces back with 30-point outing
Booker tallied 30 points (10-21 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 6-9 FT), eight assists and two rebounds across 35 minutes Thursday in the Suns' 111-109 loss to the Raptors.
Booker struggled mightily Tuesday in Indiana in his return from a three-game absence due to a back issue, but this performance was more in line with what fantasy managers have come to expect from the fourth-year player. Booker is averaging a career-best 6.9 assists per game on the season and could improve on that mark the rest of the way now that the Suns have expressed more of a willingness to deploy him as a lead ball handler than they had earlier in the campaign....

Suns' Jamal Crawford: Ruled out Thursday
Crawford (knee) will not play in Thursday's game against the Raptors.
This will be the fourth straight absence for Crawford as he continues to nurse a sore left knee. His next chance to return will be Saturday when the team travels to Charlotte.... See More ... See Less
