Isaiah Thomas was on fire against the 76ers during an easy 122-96 win on Friday, making 6-of-9 from the field for 23 points with three rebounds, eight assists, three steals and two 3-pointers.
He made his first five shots including two triples to help the Suns score 41 in the second quarter. Thomas made all nine attempts from the line and he's made a ridiculous 56-of-57 from the line in his last nine games. He won't have many games like this one and only scored 5.0 per game in his last two, but he's still going to be worth owning. Nov 21 - 10:03 PM

Isaiah Thomas hit just 1-of-9 shots for five points, three rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer on Wednesday.

He's really cooled off, hitting two or fewer shots in three of his last four games. He's shooting an atrocious 29 percent over his last five games and averaging just 11.8 points during that run, which includes a 19- and 21-point game. He'll get hot again, and as soon as he does, he'll likely hurt the productivity of Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe. As predicted, this three-headed point guard situation has become a headache for fantasy owners.
Nov 20 - 1:10 AM

Isaiah Thomas had another tremendous fourth quarter against the Nets on Wednesday, finishing with 21 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and three turnovers in 23 minutes.

He was one of the heroes against the Warriors thanks to a ridiculous usage rate of 40.8 in the fourth to help get the win. He's played 24.8 minutes per game in his last five with averages of 16.6 points, 4.8 boards, 1.2 steals and 0.8 triples. There will definitely be sub-par games, but he should be worth owning in standard leagues.

Suns coach Jeff Hornacek raved about Isaiah Thomas following a comeback win against the Warriors on Sunday.

"Isaiah is a smart player. He's herky-jerky," he said. "In a way, he's just like Curry. Curry does all the herky-jerky stuff, and when you reach on him he's smart enough to pull through on that and get a call." After scoring 22 on Sunday, Thomas is now averaging 16.9 points, 4.4 assists and 1.6 3-pointers in just 24.5 minutes per game. He's also shooting a career-high 47.6 percent from the field.
Nov 10 - 9:13 AM

Isaiah Thomas scored 22 points off of the bench in Sunday's win against the Warriors, while adding seven assists, three boards, one steal, and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

He was huge for the Suns and was able to go 13-of-14 from the free throw line. Thomas has been able to maintain decent value with the Suns this season but won't have a chance of matching his numbers last year with the Kings. He only managed 17 minutes on Friday, so at least the minutes were there Sunday.
Nov 9 - 11:25 PM

Isaiah Thomas missed shootaround due to the death of his grandfather and ended up playing just 17 minutes in his first game against the Kings on Friday.

Thomas was clearly trying to stay within himself and went just 1-of-4 for three points on the night. Local beat writers liked the way he composed himself as he also chipped in four assists and just one turnover. It did seem like Jeff Hornacek wanted to keep this game from being a slugfest between Isaiah and his old team, and their next matchup at Sleep Train in Sacto on December 26 might have a distinctly different feel.
Nov 8 - 3:25 AM

Isaiah Thomas was not at the Suns shootaround, but he’s still expected to play Friday vs. the Kings.

Isaiah was attending a funeral on Thursday, and that is the reason for his absence, so there's nothing to read into here. Thomas has been impressive for the Suns this season, averaging 18.6 points, 4.0 assists, 1.8 three-pointers, and 0.8 steals per game over just 25 minutes of action. He's embraced the role of spark plug off the bench, and the logjam at the point guard position has not dramatically affected his numbers. Continue to roll him out there.
Nov 7 - 1:58 PM

Isaiah Thomas scored 15 points in 26 minutes during a home 102-91 loss to the Grizzlies on Wednesday with one rebound, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He's been outstanding around the rim and getting to the line has helped him score at least 22 points in three of the five games this season. Still, there's really no way Thomas can score 20 per game with just 25 minutes per night, so his fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to be quite this good.
Nov 6 - 1:20 AM

Isaiah Thomas thrived in 31 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, finishing a 112-106 win vs. the Lakers with 22 points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, nine assists, three steals and zero turnovers.

It's hard to imagine a more efficient line from a backup point guard in the NBA and Thomas has now scored 22+ points in three of four games to start the season (granted, Phoenix has already played the Lakers twice). IT3 will have some quiet nights as long as both Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe are healthy, but his explosive offense is well-suited to his bench role and his early production cements him as a must-start fantasy option.
Nov 5 - 1:31 AM

Isaiah Thomas scored 10 points in 21 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday with three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers on 3-of-11 from the field.

Coach Jeff Hornacek has been playing Thomas with Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe a lot, but it didn't work tonight. In the first two games, this trio had a plus-minus of plus 17.6 per 100 possessions, so there is no need to panic. His usage is elite and he should be owned in all leagues.
Nov 2 - 2:12 AM

Isaiah Thomas continued to smolder in Friday's win over the Spurs, scoring 23 points on 10-of-17 shooting with two rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes off the bench.

You just can't keep this guy down and he appears to have a real good chemistry with the other guards on the team. Thomas' big third quarter keyed a Phoenix comeback, and he pretty much kept it going all the way through the fourth. He should be in all lineups until he cools off, if he cools off.
Nov 1 - 1:26 AM

Isaiah Thomas said he's "still trying to figure it out" when asked about what his role is with the Suns.

Thomas played just 20 minutes in Wednesday's opening-night blowout win over the Lakers, but he had 23 points, three assists and five triples. It's unclear how exactly Thomas will be deployed routinely, but he's got a good chance to earn some traction for Sixth Man of the Year if he doesn't find himself in the starting lineup.
Oct 30 - 3:30 PM

Isaiah Thomas filled it up in just 20 minutes during an easy 119-99 win over the Lakers on Wednesday, making 9-of-11 from the field for 23 points with one rebound, three assists and five 3-pointers.

That's good for a ridiculous 104.5 effective field goal percentage, 17.8 assist ratio and a 29.2 usage rate. Thomas is definitely going to have some down nights with his minutes taking a hit, but he just looks so good in this up-tempo offense. He won't be this great, but should be a player worth starting now and would become a tremendous asset should Goran Dragic or Eric Bledsoe need to miss time.
Oct 30 - 4:03 AM

Isaiah Thomas led the Suns with 26 points in Tuesday's road win, hitting 6-of-12 FGs and 12-of-13 FTs in just 31 minutes off the bench.

IT3 made two 3-pointers while adding four rebounds, one assist and two steals to round out his evening. Jeff Hornacek has been open about his willingness to experiment with a three-guard lineup, pairing Thomas with starters Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe. Even if that idea gets shelved, Thomas has enough per-minute upside to justify a pick in the late-middle rounds.
Oct 22 - 1:06 AM

Coach Jeff Hornacek said if rebounding isn't an issue, he is definitely interested in a three-guard lineup.

The Suns went on a 9-0 run with the lineup of Isaiah Thomas, Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe, so it could work. Thomas was awesome in his 20 minutes of action on Thursday, scoring 15 points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers. He also had a plus-22 in those 20 minutes, but the Kings don't need him, right? Anyway, the Pizza Guy is worth a look in the late-middle rounds.
