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.

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.

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.

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.

Isaiah Thomas scored eight points with four rebounds, six assists, one block and one turnover against the Nuggets on Friday.

He had a couple beautiful assists and will have no trouble adapting to the Phoenix offense. Thomas' role is still unclear, but he'll be worthy of a pick in the late-middle rounds for the way he can fill up a stat sheet.
Oct 11 - 12:57 PM

Isaiah Thomas played 21 minutes off the Suns bench and hit 5-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 18 points, two rebounds, four assists and three steals on Wednesday.

He easily outplayed starting PG Goran Dragic, despite the fact Dragic played five more minutes again Flamengo. Dragic and Eric Bledsoe are still the first guards you'll want to own in Phoenix, but Thomas should be drafted shortly thereafter. The Suns plan on pushing the ball this season and will use all three guards together at times.
Oct 9 - 1:32 AM

Isaiah Thomas' surgically-repaired left wrist is still sore, but it's an expected soreness which doctors have told him he can play through.

"If I can run, I'm going to play," Thomas said. "I can still score." The Suns' newest guard should fill a sixth-man role behind Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe this season, denting his fantasy value, but at least he's on pace to be healthy for opening night.
Sep 30 - 3:57 PM

Isaiah Thomas (wrist) will be limited at the Suns' first two-a-day practice because his surgically-repaired wrist is not yet at full strength.

Thomas underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist on August 14, so this news shouldn't come as a huge shock to fantasy owners. The 25-year-old had a fantastic 2013-14 season in which he averaged 20.3 points, 2.9 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.8 three-pointers per game, but his 2014-15 numbers will take a hit as he plays behind Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic. While Thomas's per-minute efficiency still makes him worth a mid-late round draft pick, fantasy owners should be careful not to get too caught up in his 2013-14 numbers.
Sep 30 - 12:24 PM

Isaiah Thomas donated 300 backpacks to kids in a Boys and Girls Club of Metro Phoenix.

He was a beloved player in Sacramento for doing things like this and he's on his way to being the same in Phoenix. Thomas' offseason has also included a lot of training as he prepares for a new role as a sixth-man, but he shouldn't take long to get acclimated. Still, his fantasy value takes a big hit and he's very unlikely to come close to matching his production from last season.

Isaiah Thomas (left wrist) said the first day of rehab was going great.

"[I'm] about to get this right hand better on the court, the season is almost here," Thomas said on his Twitter account. The left-hander's move to the Suns figures to hurt his playing time with the Suns expected to have Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe. IT3 has been very effective from a per-minute standpoint, so he's still worth drafting later in fantasy drafts.
Aug 25 - 1:00 PM

Isaiah Thomas underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist on Thursday.

The news of Thomas' surgery comes as a bit of a surprise, but the team fully expects him to be ready for training camp. His playing time is going to take a hit if Eric Bledsoe sticks around, but he has been productive in lower-minute roles in the past so don't completely write him off.
Aug 14 - 2:59 PM

Isaiah Thomas scored 47 points in a Pro-Am event at a Seattle YMCA on Monday.

He shot 17-of-28 from the field with seven 3-pointers in the game, and this was his second Pro Am game with 47 points. Thomas is likely looking at a bench role with the Suns next season, but has shown the ability to be productive with lower minutes. Whether or not he can be a difference-maker will come down to Eric Bledsoe's status with the team, which should be figured out soon.

Isaiah Thomas said he wants to "kill" Sacramento on the court when he plays them in the future.

"I tell everybody I love Sacramento, I always will love Sacramento, but when we play them I'm going to kill Sacramento," Thomas said. It's three weeks later and it still doesn't make sense that the Kings didn't bring Thomas back. The Kings and Suns are in the same division, so we should get four games of seeing the point guard get some revenge.
Aug 2 - 9:31 AM

Isaiah Thomas said the Kings signing Darren Collison to a deal while he was a restricted free agent was "disrespectful."

"When they did that, I knew I wasn't coming back," Thomas said. "Going into my fourth year, I felt like I kind of proved myself to be a starter, especially on the Sacramento Kings and like I told them, coach Malone, who was one of my biggest fans and the best coaches that I have had in my three years in the NBA, I told him if you bring somebody in better than me I'm just going to compete." He added the biggest thing wrong with the Kings was trust, which makes sense considering they were last in the NBA in assists per game. Thomas was terrific at running the offense for the Kings and it's one of the more odd stories to see him wind up in Phoenix. His fantasy value hinges on what the Suns wind up doing with Eric Bledsoe.
Aug 1 - 10:39 AM

Isaiah Thomas told media during Monday's introductory press conference that he decided to sign with Phoenix because they made him "feel wanted."

"I wanted to feel wanted. They brought me in and liked me for being me," said Thomas. "They want me and I want to be here." That's probably a very nice feeling for Thomas after spending the past three seasons with an organization that never really wanted him. Thomas will bring a potent scoring punch to the second unit in Phoenix, or he could become a starter if restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe leaves via free agency. Either way, Thomas should be able to provide solid value with whatever role he holds in Phoenix’s high-octane offense.
