Troy Daniels scored a season-high 23 points with three rebounds, one assist and seven 3-pointers against the Rockets on Thursday.
Revenge game? HIs second quarter was the highlight with six treys, matching the franchise record for treys in a quarter. Daniels' playing time was starting to trend down coming into this game, but it may go up if the Suns do want to play Booker at the one. He's obviously only worth a look in super deep leagues.

Date:

Troy Daniels scored nine points with one rebound, one steal and three 3-pointers in 17 minutes against the Heat on Wednesday.

He's starting to see a little more playing time and even played next to Devin Booker in this game. Daniels is still likely going to make most of his money in garbage time, but his rotation spot seems fairly secure.
Nov 9 - 12:20 AM

Troy Daniels scored nine points with one rebound and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Knicks on Friday.

The Suns may have to play Daniels more out of necessity because to T.J. Warren (head) going down and how they could play Devin Booker at the three on occasion. You're obviously going to have to be in a super deep league to add him.
Nov 4 - 12:20 AM

Troy Daniels played three minutes and scored three points against the Lakers on Friday.

He's behind Mike James in the guard pecking order. Unless Devin Booker's back injury gets worse, Daniels is a tough hold.
Oct 21 - 2:18 AM

Troy Daniels scored six points with one rebound and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday.

He looks to be Devin Booker's backup at shooting guard and he even played next to him, as well. Booker did deal with some cramping today, but the Suns probably wouldn't up Daniels' minutes too much in almost any early-season scenario.
Oct 19 - 1:56 AM

Earl Watson said he wants Troy Daniels to attempt 10 3-pointers per game this season.

"That’s my game," Daniels said. "I hope guys can see that. You can throw it up ahead, we can get some easy transition threes." With Devin Booker (knee), Brandon Knight (knee) and Davon Reed (knee) all banged up, there's a chance Daniels could be in the starting lineup for Phoenix on opening night, which would put him on the radar as a potential 3-point specialist in deep leagues. Still, Booker's injury doesn't seem like it will be a long-term issue, so Daniels isn't worth drafting in most leagues.
Oct 12 - 9:48 AM

Troy Daniels scored 18 points against the Jazz on Friday with one rebound and five 3-pointers.

Well, now he has our attention with his second consecutive game with five treys. The Suns need a second-unit shooter to help space the floor Tyler Ulis and now T.J. Warren (head) going down could open up minutes for Daniels. He's still not worth drafting, but he's been the best offensive weapon on the Suns so far.
Oct 7 - 12:51 AM

The Suns acquired Troy Daniels and a 2018 second-round pick from Memphis for a top-55 protected in pick 2018.

The Grizzlies have some decent depth at guard with Wayne Selden playing well and Tyreke Evans in the mix. Daniels was one of coach David Fizdale's guys and his quote saying he had a "money green" light to shoot was a cool story last year. Daniels likely won't be in the rotation to start the season.
Sep 22 - 7:34 PM

Troy Daniels left Sunday's game briefly due to a left knee injury, but he returned and finished with eight points in 14 minutes.

Daniels logged 30-plus minutes in three straight games from March 31-April 4, averaging 17.0 points per game. Since then, he has mustered just 16 total points over the past three outings. He is only worth a roster spot in the deepest of fantasy leagues, as his playing time and production has been rather sporadic.
Apr 9 - 10:11 PM

Troy Daniels tied for the team lead with 20 points on Sunday, making 7-of-13 shots with six 3-pointers, three assists, two boards and one steal in 31 minutes off the bench.

Daniels' scoring wasn't quite enough to help his team beat the Lakers in L.A. He was coming off a game with 21 points, all coming on 3-pointers, and should continue to see elevated minutes with Memphis resting veterans now that they've secured a playoff spot. He's worth a look if you need points and triples, but don't expect much else.
Apr 2 - 6:21 PM

Troy Daniels made seven 3-pointers for his 21 points against the Mavs on Friday, adding three rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 34 minutes.

It was money green time for the Daniels in the second unit with Daniels' 12 attempts from deep accounting for all the non-starting Grizzlies tries from beyond the arc. He hasn't shot the ball well this month at just 30.7 percent from the field in his previous March games, so there's no need to overreact to this stat line. If the Grizzlies do rest guys, he'll be an option.
Apr 1 - 1:06 AM

Troy Daniels scored 12 points on four 3-pointers in 24 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday.

Wayne Selden got the start in place of Tony Allen (knee), but Daniels looks like the better short-term pickup in very deep leagues. Daniels added two rebounds and two assists, and considering he was averaging 2.0 triples in 16.8 minutes per game prior to Tuesday, he's the definition of a 3-point specialist. With that said, the Grizzlies only play two more times this week and it's not clear if Allen will miss more time.
Mar 21 - 11:28 PM

Coach David Fizdale said Troy Daniels will stay in the rotation.

"At least I know now that I’m not trying to squeeze in Troy Daniels," Fizdale said. While he has seen minutes in the upper teens lately, Daniels is ice cold with his 27.3 percent from the field and only 1.8 treys in his last five. He will likely be more involved when the Grizzlies are trailing in games because Fizdale trusts him with a high volume of treys more than anyone else on his roster. He's still only a specialist in deep leagues.
Mar 16 - 3:57 PM

Troy Daniels played 15 minutes with 13 points, two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers against the Pacers on Friday.

The Grizzlies needed some late scoring, so they turned to their Money Green guy to try and close the gap with triples. It didn't work with the Grizzlies losing by 10 points. Daniels is not a lock to play against the Nuggets on Sunday, but he should see double-digit minutes.
Feb 24 - 9:28 PM

Troy Daniels was ejected in the fourth quarter on Wednesday.

He made a three with the foul and talked trash to Devin Booker, which did not sit well with the other Suns. Daniels was shoving Tyler Ulis, but he's not likely looking at a suspension. Daniels had a good game today with 14 points, three rebounds, one steal and four 3-pointers in 22 minutes.
