Mirza Teletovic scored 17 points with one assist and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Thunder on Monday.
He seems to have his minutes around 20 locked up right now. In his last five, Teletovic averaged 13.4 points, 1.8 boards, 0.4 blocks and 2.2 treys. If you need some treys to stash through the All-Star break, he's not a bad idea. If the Suns make some deals, it should help Mirza. Feb 9 - 1:00 AM

Mirza Teletovic scored 15 points with four rebounds and three 3-pointers in 19 minutes against the Rockets on Thursday.

He seems like he's locked in as a guy to get the backup minutes behind Markieff Morris. Now that coach Earl Watson seems to have tightened up his rotation, Teletovic is worth a look as a low-end guy with some stashing upside.
Feb 4 - 11:47 PM

Mirza Teletovic was replaced in the starting lineup by Markieff Morris on Tuesday and hit just 2-of-8 shots for six points, two rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

The loss of T.J. Warren for the season works in Teletovic's favor, but the return of Jon Leuer works against him. Teletovic has been too inconsistent for most of the season to warrant owning, but if he gets hot again, think about grabbing him - especially since Warren's season is over.
Feb 3 - 12:39 AM

Mirza Teletovic had 14 points, one rebound and one block in 21 minutes on Sunday, while starting at PF ahead of Alex Len and Markieff Morris.

Teletovic has potential as a 3-point specialist if his minutes stay north of 20 per game, but his overall fantasy contributions are very limited. There are no guarantees that he'll continue to start alongside Tyson Chandler, and most owners should stay clear of him.
Jan 31 - 10:13 PM

Mirza Teletovic will start on Sunday vs. the Mavericks with Alex Len moving to the bench.

The Mavericks are starting Chandler Parsons at the four with Dirk Nowitzki out, so this decision is likely due to the matchup. Teletovic did start the second half of Friday's game, but the Suns' lineup could change on a nightly basis. Teletovic is better suited for deeper leagues if you need 3-pointers.
Jan 31 - 7:13 PM

Mirza Teletovic returned after a DNP-CD with four points, one assist and one block in 17 minutes against the Knicks on Friday.

He actually started the second half at power forward next to Tyson Chandler tonight, but he has looked a step slow. Coach Jeff Hornacek ran an 11-man rotation tonight in the first half, so chances are there will be some DNP-CDs for Mirza, Jon Leuer and/or Markieff Morris in the near future. He's not a strong hold anymore.
Jan 29 - 10:06 PM

Mirza Teletovic did not leave the Suns' bench on Wednesday.

Teletovic recently dealt with a sprained left ankle and it's likely that was the cause of his inactivity, as the Suns were finishing the second half of a back-to-back set. We'll pass along more information as it becomes available, and for now his deep-league owners should sit tight.
Jan 27 - 9:43 PM

Mirza Teletovic returned from an ankle injury on Tuesday and hit 3-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, one rebound and a block in 16 minutes.

He was hot when he got hurt, but it could take him a few games to get back into a groove. Markieff Morris is also getting minutes for the Suns right now, further limiting Teletovic's potential. Just keep an eye on him.
Jan 26 - 9:54 PM

Mirza Teletovic (ankle) checked into Tuesday's game vs. the 76ers with three minutes left in the first quarter.

The Suns listed him as questionable, but they never updated his status prior to tip-off. Jon Leuer (back) is inactive Tuesday, so Teletovic should see decent minutes off the bench if his ankle holds up. Check back after the game for an update.
Jan 26 - 7:30 PM

Mirza Teletovic (ankle) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the 76ers.

Teletovic returned from his ankle injury on Saturday vs. the Hawks in Atlanta, but his ankle flared up after the cross-country flight back to Phoenix, and he was held out of Tuesday morning's shootaround. It sounds like Teletovic will be a game-time call for Tuesday's game, and if he's not able to give it a go, Alex Len will be logging a lot of minutes at the power forward slot.
Jan 26 - 3:18 PM

Mirza Teletovic (ankle) returned on Saturday against the Hawks with six points, three rebounds, two steals and two 3-pointers in 15 minutes.

The Suns succeeding with the Alex Len and Tyson Chandler lineup combo doesn't bode well for Mirza. He's trending down right now even though it could be due to him not being 100 percent. He's also reportedly on the trade block, which would hurt his value. He's a drop candidate for now.
Jan 23 - 11:58 PM

Mirza Teletovic (ankle) will try to play against the Hawks on Saturday.

He isn't 100 percent from his ankle sprain on Tuesday. He's not going to start and his minutes could be limited. Fantasy owners probably shouldn't start him tonight.
Jan 23 - 7:29 PM

Mirza Teletovic (ankle) is questionable to play Saturday vs. the Hawks.

The Suns have zero depth at the power forward slot with Markieff Morris (shoulder), Jon Leuer and P.J. Tucker's (chest bruise) status all up in the air for Saturday's game. If none of those guys can play, we'll likely see a lot of Alex Len at the four with Cory Jefferson getting some extended run off the bench. Len would put up 13 points, eight boards and two swats on Thursday, so he's worth swooping up again with his minutes likely to be in the 30s.
Jan 22 - 8:46 PM

Mirza Teletovic (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Thursday.

He rolled his ankle and suffered the most apparent injury on Tuesday. His value is really starting to falter and he's going to need the Suns to make a deal to help him out. If there is someone you really want on the wire, Mirza isn't a must hold.
Jan 21 - 8:59 PM

Mirza Teletovic (sprained left ankle) is questionable to face the Spurs on Thursday night.

Teletovic rolled his ankle during Tuesday's game and wasn't able to practice on Wednesday, so the questionable tag seems rather optimistic here. The Suns will be scraping for healthy bodies tonight if Teletovic is unavailable with Markieff Morris (shoulder) and Jon Leuer (back) also uncertain, so Alex Len and P.J. Tucker could be forced into major minutes with newly signed Cory Jefferson also getting into the rotation. Check back for another update on Mirza closer to Thursday's tip.
