Danuel House should be getting all the run he can handle tonight, with Shaquille Harrison picking up more playing time with the second unit. House is the more attractive streamer here. Apr 10 - 4:31 PM

Troy Daniels (ankle) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Mavs.

With the Suns shorthanded, Daniels attempted to play through pain on Sunday vs. Golden State. However, he lasted just 13 minutes before being ruled out of the game. If he is unable to play in Tuesday, Shaq Harrison will soak up additional minutes.
Apr 10 - 10:26 AM

Troy Daniels (ankle) will not return to Sunday's game vs. the Warriors.

He didn't look right and it was clear that his ankle was bothering him. Shaq Harrison started the second half in his place. We'd expect Daniels to miss Phoenix's season finale.
Apr 8 - 10:52 PM

Troy Daniels (ankle) said he'll try to play on Sunday vs. the Warriors.

That's not very reassuring, but the Suns are desperate for bodies. With Daniels active, that means the Suns won't have to rely on Shaq Harrison, Danuel House and Davon Reed quite as much, but all of them should be in the mix for minutes.
Apr 8 - 7:28 PM

Troy Daniels is questionable for Sunday against the Warriors.

We're assuming he's not going to play here, but you never know.
Apr 7 - 4:50 PM

Troy Daniels (ankle) will not play on Friday vs. the Pelicans.

The Suns are going to be very thin with Devin Booker (hand), T.J. Warren (knee) and Elfrid Payton (knee) out as well. We'll continue to see plenty of Shaq Harrison, Danuel House and Davon Reed for the remainder of the season.
Apr 6 - 8:42 PM

Troy Daniels (ankle) is unlikely to play against the Pelicans on Friday.

He suffered the injury on Tuesday and he did not return. Daniels also did not practice today, so he almost certainly won't play. The Suns would likely have to play Shaq Harrison, Danuel House and Davon Reed more often.
Apr 5 - 4:36 PM

Troy Daniels (right ankle sprain) will not return to Tuesday's game against the Kings.

He went down just nine minutes into the game, missed his only shot and failed to record any other statistics. Depending on the severity of the sprain, this could be it for Daniels this season, which would translate to more burn for Danuel House. House is on the radar in deep leagues.
Apr 3 - 11:24 PM

Troy Daniels scored 23 points with four rebounds and seven 3-pointers against the Rockets on Friday.

The Rockets forgot to cover him a lot in this game, which helped him get several open looks on his 12 attempts from deep. Devin Booker still had a splint on his hand while he wasn't even playing tonight, so maybe he misses more time. Daniels is a solid 3-point streamer until Book and T.J. Warren are back.
Mar 30 - 11:46 PM

Troy Daniels started for Devin Booker again and hit 6-of-16 shots, 6-of-14 3-pointers and finished with 18 points, six rebounds and nothing else in Monday's loss to the Celtics.

Daniels has been hot over his last five games, averaging 17.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and 4.2 3-pointers on 43 percent shooting. He's scored at least 18 points in three of his last four, and is one of the leagues more under-appreciated 3-point shooters. Unfortunately, he doesn't do much besides shoot threes, and is helped by the fact that both T.J. Warren and Devin Booker are banged up right now. But if you need a scorer and 3-pointers, he looks really good right now.
Mar 27 - 12:20 AM

Troy Daniels scored 20 points with six rebounds, one assist and six 3-pointers against the Cavs on Friday.

It sounds like Devin Booker is getting closer to a return, so that would affect Daniels more than anyone else. He should still have some value while T.J. Warren is out, so he's a stream option for those needing treys.
Mar 23 - 10:34 PM

Troy Daniels scored 18 points in a start for Devin Booker (hand) on Tuesday vs. the Pistons.

He hit 6-of-9 shots and 4-of-5 triples, adding three boards in 31 minutes. Daniels is a solid 3-point specialist with 3.0 triples per game over his last five, but you usually can't trust him when Devin Booker (hand) is active. If we hear bad news regarding Phoenix's franchise player, Daniels will be a streaming option if you need triples on Friday vs. Cleveland and Saturday vs. Orlando.
Mar 21 - 12:31 AM

Troy Daniels scored 18 points on 6-of-12 shooting Saturday, to go with three 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists, two steals and one turnover through 29 minutes as a starter.

Daniels had the hot hand early for Phoenix, drilling three triples within his first five minutes of play, and he also came through with the defensive stats. Devin Booker’s hand injury doesn’t seem all that serious, but with T.J. Warren leaving the game with a knee injury there could be more opportunity for Daniels moving forward. Still, he’s not much more than a deep league, 3-point specialist and the Suns don’t play again until Tuesday.
Mar 18 - 1:15 AM

Troy Daniels will start for Devin Booker (hand) against the Warriors on Saturday.

Josh Jackson is still going to get huge minutes off the bench tonight, but Daniels will be taking a bunch of threes. It doesn't sound like Booker will be out for long, so Daniels isn't a strong add.
Mar 17 - 9:34 PM

Troy Daniels came off the bench for nine points in 17 minutes Tuesday against Cleveland.

Daniels was back to the bench with Devin Booker (triceps), Josh Jackson (knee) and T.J. Warren (back) all back in action. As long as the Suns are healthy, Daniels is a reserve and his minutes will be limited to 20 or less. As such, his fantasy appeal is limited to the deepest leagues.
