T.J. Warren (foot) has announced that he has been cleared to return to the court.
Warren took to Twitter to announce he's been cleared to return to the court, so it sounds like he'll be ready to go for training camp after having surgery in February. Warren won't head into the season with much standard league fantasy value but he's worth a look in deeper leagues. Sep 15 - 10:43 AM

T.J. Warren (right foot) was running at workouts on Wednesday.

It's the first time he's been cleared to run since surgery back in February. Before this point, Warren has been shooting set shots and working on his upper body this summer. While he doesn't have the prettiest shot, Warren made 40 percent of his 70 attempts from beyond the arc. The Suns are likely going to take a forward with the fourth pick in the draft, so that could hurt Warren's minutes. He'll be ready for the regular season.
Jun 8 - 3:35 PM

T.J. Warren underwent successful surgery to repair his fractured right foot on Tuesday, and he will miss the remainder of the 2015-16 season.

Warren will now begin the rehab process, but assuming he suffers no setbacks in his recovery, he should be able to get back on the court by the time the 2016-17 season begins. P.J. Tucker has been earning 40.3 minutes per game since Warren went down to go with averages of 8.2 points, 5.0 boards, 2.5 assists, 2.2 steals and 0.8 three-pointers per game on 39.6 percent shooting, which has been good enough for late-round value in standard leagues.

T.J. Warren is set to undergo surgery on his fractured right foot, and he will miss the remainder of the 2015-16 season.

With Warren set to spend the remainder of the season on the sidelines, P.J. Tucker is going to get all the run he can handle with guys like Sonny Weems and Mirza Teletovic having the opportunity for some extended run off the bench. Teletovic is worth a look in deep leagues for those seeking a 3-point specialist.
Feb 3 - 10:32 AM

T.J. Warren (right foot) will miss the rest of the season with a broken foot.

It's been a rough six weeks since Eric Bledsoe (knee) went down. Warren was expected to see more minutes with the Suns shifting to more of a youth movement under Earl Watson, but now they'll be without their 2014 first rounder. Warren's injury makes Sonny Weems the backup small forward behind P.J. Tucker, who is also believed to be on the trade block. Warren was also playing some shooting guard, so Jordan McRae may play more if Watson wants to use McRae as a combo-guard player. Warren owners in redraft leagues can make a drop.
Feb 2 - 4:48 PM

T.J. Warren (right ankle impingement) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Mavs.

Warren has been battling through a right ankle injury for the past two games, and he'll finally be forced to the sidelines on Sunday. With Warren out, look for P.J. Tucker to get all the run he can handle, with Sonny Weems and Jordan McRae having the opportunity for some extended minutes off the bench.

T.J. Warren scored 12 points with two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Knicks on Friday.

His ankle injury didn't seem to affect him, but he struggled on defense again. Warren is going to need a trade to help, which seems like it'll happen.
Jan 30 - 2:33 AM

T.J. Warren (ankle) will try to play against the Knicks on Friday.

He looked a lot better on Wednesday, but his minutes are still likely to be in the 20s. Warren is playing some shooting guard, which makes some sense against Arron Afflalo at times tonight. He's only a stash right now.
Jan 29 - 7:14 PM

T.J. Warren (right ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Knicks.

This is the first we're hearing of an ankle injury for T.J., but if he's unable to give it a go Friday night, P.J. Tucker would get all the run he could handle, with Sonny Weems earning some extended run off the bench. Check back for another update on Warren following Friday morning's shootaround.
Jan 28 - 4:07 PM

T.J. Warren came off the bench for 11 points on 5-of-8 shooting vs. the Cavs, adding three rebounds, two assists, one steal and zero turnovers in 26 minutes of action.

Warren earned extra minutes in garbage time, as the Cavs blew open the game with a big run to begin the third quarter. He's running hot in his past four games, shooting 15-of-29 from the field, but his minutes continue to fluctuate wildly on a nightly basis. At least consider benching Warren until Jeff Hornacek decides to fully unleash him.
Jan 27 - 9:45 PM

Coach Jeff Hornacek said after Tuesday's game one of his players "totally didn't know where his man was" on defense.

He didn't name a player by name, but he described a situation with an eight-point lead. T.J. Warren totally lost Hollis Thompson in the third quarter, so we'd bet it was Warren (video in link below). Warren has been on his coach's bad side for effort, so he might not play much tonight against LeBron James. P.J. Tucker should play a ton, especially since he saw minutes at point guard on Tuesday.
Jan 27 - 2:06 PM

T.J. Warren scored six points in 15 minutes off the bench against the Hawks on Saturday, adding one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block.

Coach Jeff Hornacek has lost a lot of confidence in Warren these days. The Suns are likely going to make some deals to unload guys, which would help Warren get a ton of minutes. He's more of a luxury stash.
Jan 24 - 12:01 AM

T.J. Warren scored 18 points in 33 minutes against the Spurs on Thursday, adding one rebound, one assist and two 3-pointers.

He probably would've played more if not for some foul trouble. Warren started the second half because P.J. Tucker (chest contusion) got hurt in the first quarter and could not return. Warren is out of the doghouse from his three-minute game on Tuesday due to lack of effort, so he should be owned in standard leagues while the Suns are so thin. He's also up to 41.5 percent from deep on the year.
Jan 22 - 1:39 AM

T.J. Warren (knee) is on the active list for Thursday's game against the Spurs.

He was in the doghouse on Tuesday with just three minutes, but the team put him on the injury report for a strange knee issue. While the Suns are razor thin, it's still tough to trust Warren tonight. Sonny Weems may play more, but Warren is still a decent stash.
Jan 21 - 9:06 PM

T.J. Warren (knee) missed practice on Wednesday and is questionable to play against the Spurs on Thursday.

This is a weird one. Warren was benched on Tuesday for not having enough effort. While he was on the bench, it didn't appear he was receiving treatment or have a wrap on his knee. If he's out, the Suns will play a ton of P.J. Tucker while Sonny Weems would also get some burn.
