Cristiano Felicio scored five points with six rebounds and no turnovers in 17 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

He's lost a little bit of his momentum after a strong finish to his first half. Felicio hit the 22-minute mark in three of his previous four games, but he's just too unreliable to use while the Bulls are in playoff contention. He doesn't help that Robin Lopez is extremely durable.

Devin Booker scored 27 points during a 128-121 overtime loss in Chicago on Friday, adding three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes

With the Suns down two, Booker was fouled on a 3-pointer with one second left in regulation. After he made the first two, Booker just missed the third to get this game to OT. He was furious with himself and chances are that miss will haunt him for a long time. Tonight aside, the Suns will be looking to their youth more often, which does include Booker despite how he's clearly the most untouchable player on their roster. He is trending up and hopefully more non-scoring stats are on the way.

Marquese Chriss scored 17 points with seven rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

There's absolutely no doubt Chriss is going to get more minutes going forward. Based on the comments from general manager Ryan McDonough, Chriss seems to be the No. 1 priority for the Suns youth movement, so he'll be getting minutes in the 30s more often -- he needs to avoid foul trouble. Chriss should be owned in all standard leagues with his multi-stat upside.

Rudy Gobert double-doubled with 15 points, 16 rebounds, two assists and three blocks vs. the Bucks on Friday.

This was his sixth game of the season with 15+ points, 15+ rebounds and 3+ blocks -- only Hassan Whiteside (8) and Anthony Davis (10) have more such games. Gobert shot 5-of-7 from the field and 5-of-7 from the line with four turnovers, and he's now shooting 66.3 percent from the free throw line on the season which means he's well on pace for a career-best.
Feb 25 - 12:49 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored 17 points with seven rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, one block, two 3-pointers and five turnovers against the Bulls on Friday.

General manager Ryan McDonough did the rounds in the past couple days with interviews for the Phoenix TV broadcast and also on a local radio station. He talked about guys like Devin Booker and the youth movement, but didn't really mention Bledsoe as a guy to get big minutes. In other words, there's a chance he gets some games off at some point later this season because the Suns basically already know what they have with him. His fantasy owners may want to expect a decrease in his fantasy value going forward. Don't forget Bledsoe has already been rested one game this season.

Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Alex Len got the start for a resting Tyson Chandler against the Bulls on Friday, scoring four points with seven rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 35 minutes.

He flopped big time with this massive opportunity. There will still be more chances coming for Len with the Suns saying they want to get a long look at him before he becomes a restricted free agent this summer. Alan Williams continues to outplay him, but Len is worth a pickup in standard leagues with Chandler certainly getting more rest going forward.
Feb 25 - 12:40 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 29 points with four assists, three rebounds and one triple in 34 minutes vs. the Bucks on Friday.

He had two nasty dunks in this game including one over Giannis Antetokounmpo (link below). Hayward shot 11-of-17 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line, picking up right where he left off before the All-Star break. He's been a top-25 player in standard leagues over the past month, but he gets a tough matchup with the Wizards on Sunday.
Feb 25 - 12:40 AM

Leandro Barbosa scored eight points with three rebounds, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 16 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

The Suns are going with a youth movement, so Barbosa is likely going to get some nights off. Plus, the Suns will probably want to play Brandon Knight at some point to do something about his bottomed-out trade value. There's no need to add Barbosa anywhere.
