Archie Goodwin played just six minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday with one point and one rebound.

Coach Jeff Hornacek is in mad-scientist mode with his rotation right now and gave the minutes to T.J. Warren tonight. Goodwin still can't shoot and his defensive numbers have really fallen off, so he can be kept on the wire in just about all leagues.

Coach Jeff Hornacek said Archie Goodwin's recent play has given him confidence to play more.

Based on that comment, we might not see much Gerald Green tonight. Goodwin has really played well in the D-League on the season and he's played double-digit minutes in each of his last two. He's only worth a look in deep leagues.
Feb 23 - 7:30 PM

Archie Goodwin played 17 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday with 12 points, one rebound and one assist.

He played a little more than expected with Brandon Knight in the mix. Gerald Green has really come out flat to start the second half, which explains the uptick for Goodwin. He was awesome in the D-League showcase and has been a fun guy to watch at Summer League, but he probably won't play this much.

Archie Goodwin and Reggie Bullock have been sent down for a stint in the NBA D-League.

Neither player will likely crack the rotation in Phoenix as long as they remain competitive in the loaded Western Conference, so it's safe to leave Bullock and Goodwin on the wire in almost all leagues.
Feb 8 - 9:50 AM

Archie Goodwin and Reggie Bullock have both been sent down for a D-League stint.

Neither Goodwin, nor Bullock are major components of the Suns' rotation, so there aren't any fantasy implications with this news. They belong on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.
Jan 29 - 3:24 PM

Archie Goodwin's agent, Charles Briscoe, confirmed that Goodwin does not want to be traded from the Suns.

"Archie doesn’t want out of Phoenix," Briscoe said. "His words have been twisted in a recent article. We’re willing to wait for Archie’s opportunity. Any player in the NBA wants to play immediately, but we understand that Phoenix is in a playoff push. If we have to wait for next year, we’re OK with that. We know he will get his opportunity, and he’ll be ready." Goodwin has a long way to go before being a consistent part of the Suns' rotation, so unless he is traded to an ideal situation he can continue to be ignored in almost all fantasy leagues.

The Phoenix Suns have assigned G Archie Goodwin to the D-League.

This move comes as no surprise as Goodwin has logged just 11 minutes in the Sun's last 16 games. The Suns will attempt to get the second-year player more game experience with the Bakersfield Jam, but fantasy owners can feel free to move on as Goodwin will be hard-pressed to crack the Suns' rotation this year.

Suns G Archie Goodwin scored 12 points in nine minutes of garbage time on Sunday, hitting 3-of-4 FGs and 6-of-7 FTs with one assist and one block.

If you missed Goodwin's massive dunk over Jonas Valanciunas, do yourself a favor and follow the link below. He scored 29 points in the final game of the 2013-14 season and is capable of some explosive offensive performances, but won't get many opportunities this season in a backcourt with Eric Bledsoe, Goran Dragic, Isaiah Thomas and Gerald Green. Look elsewhere for a deep sleeper with rest-of-season potential.

The Suns sent G Archie Goodwin, G Tyler Ennis and F T.J. Warren to the D-League.

They're expected to play three games for Bakersfield and then re-join the team on Dec. 31 for a game at OKC.

The Suns picked up their third-year option on Archie Goodwin.

He was very impressive at 2013 summer league and his defense has been his best asset as a player. Although, Goodwin won't get minutes to start the season because the Suns are loaded at guard.

Archie Goodwin played well vs. the Warriors on Saturday with 17 points, one steal and three fouls in 26 minutes.

For the second year in a row, it looks like Goodwin is going to have a tough time getting run. Last year, Gerald Green came out of nowhere and now Isaiah Thomas pushes Goodwin down even further.

Suns guard Archie Goodwin was arrested earlier this month for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest at a skating rink.

The 19-year-old was seen by a police officer "exhibiting aggressive gestures" toward another person, and tried to break away once he was taken into custody. He has a court date on June 3 and the legal side of this incident should be settled well before training camp, but it's possible that he'll face a season-opening suspension. A skating rink? Yes, a skating rink.

Archie Goodwin busted out for a career-high 29 points vs. the Kings on Wednesday, adding four boards, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer on 11-of-13 from the field in 31 minutes.

He made a huge splash in Las Vegas Summer League, but he was extremely quiet until tonight. If not for Gerald Green making a strong case for Most Improved Player, we might have seen more of Goodwin. He's a plus defender and showed tonight that he can really get to the rim. His jumper needs work and he's unlikely to be a target in fantasy drafts next season.

Archie Goodwin scored a career-high 16 points vs. the Jazz during a 109-86 loss to go with seven boards, one assist, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

He shot 6-of-10 from the field and 3-of-7 from the line off the bench tonight. Goodwin has stepped it up lately after being sent down to the D-League earlier this month. His offense still has a long way to go, but he has a chance to be a solid on-ball defender in his career. He's not on the fantasy radar yet.
