T.J. Warren played 40 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday with 18 points, three rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and no turnovers.
The Suns went with Warren and P.J. Tucker together for 21 minutes in this game, so that somewhat explains the big playing time for Warren. His playing time is clearly back, averaging 30.4 minutes, 2.0 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.4 treys in his last five. With more Tucker rumors popping up, Warren could start trending up again. Although, we don't think he'll be as good as he was to start the year. Jan 19 - 9:48 PM

T.J. Warren hit 5-of-7 shots, 1-of-1 3-pointers and 4-of-4 free throws for 15 points, one rebound, one assist and one steal in 31 minutes of Monday's 106-101 loss to the Jazz.

Warren is back, but doesn't look like the same player he was prior to his head injury. There's plenty of time for him to get going again, but his averages of just 11.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.0 blocks and 0.4 3-pointers on 54 percent shooting are not awe inspiring. He may find his game again and finish up strong, but for now, he's only worth keeping around in 12-team leagues as a fill-in when you don't have a full roster. His lack of anything but the occasional nice scoring night is a concern.
Jan 16 - 11:31 PM

T.J. Warren scored 12 points with one rebound, two steals and two turnovers in 26 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

It's been a bumpy ride for Warren and it stings even more in fantasy because he's so scoring dependent. Even with this solid game, his averages over his last five aren't pretty with 9.2 points, 2.2 boards, 1.0 assists and 0.2 treys. He's really just a low-end guy for now.
Jan 14 - 10:10 PM

T.J. Warren scored 15 points with three rebounds, two assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes on Sunday against the Cavs.

It was a solid outing for Warren, who had scored fewer than 10 points in four of his previous five games. Since returning from a head injury on Dec. 17, his minutes have been inconsistent and so has his production. That being said, he remains a hold in standard leagues.
Jan 8 - 11:42 PM

T.J. Warren scored nine points with five rebounds and no turnovers in 24 minutes against the Mavs on Thursday.

He's been pretty annoying to own lately with a big 24-point game coming in the middle of his last five. Over that span, Warren averaged just 7.8 points, 3.4 boards, 0.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.4 blocks. It seems pretty obvious his terrific start was unsustainable, but he's still a hold in standard leagues.
Jan 6 - 12:16 AM

T.J. Warren played just 17 minutes, hit 1-of-3 shots and finished with two points, one block and nothing else in Tuesday's win over the Heat.

Warren didn't look great out of the gate, never got it going and the Suns rolled with hot hands (P.J. Tucker) for most of the night. This game was particularly distressing after Warren went for zero points in 19 minutes on Saturday, and then 24 points on Monday night. All the progress Warren made on Monday was canceled out by tonight's dud and he simply can't be trusted right now. But he was playing very well before his head injury and chances are he'll eventually return to form. But we'll need to see him put together a few nice lines in a row before messing with him in DFS, or starting him in a weekly league. Watch for news in case there's something else going on here, but it looks like he's just not ready to play at a high level just yet. Hang onto him if you can.
Jan 4 - 12:07 AM

T.J. Warren made another start and scored 24 points on 12-of-20 shooting in Monday's 109-98 loss to the Clippers.

He flopped in his previous start with zero points in 19 minutes, but came through for his owners who stuck with him tonight. Warren tied Eric Bledsoe for the team lead in minutes with 41 on Monday, adding eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block. He gets another great matchup on Tuesday vs. the Heat, so make sure he's not sitting on your wire.
Jan 3 - 1:16 AM

T.J. Warren's return to the starting lineup did not go well against the Jazz on Saturday, failing to score with one rebound, one steal and one foul.

Yuck. It's not quite clear why his minutes really fell off, but it may have to do with coach Earl Watson trusting P.J. Tucker and wanting two bigs out there against the Jazz frontcourt. The Suns get a much better matchup for Warren with a trip to Staples to face the Clippers. Warren should remain owned here.

T.J. Warren is back in the starting lineup in place of P.J. Tucker against the Jazz on Saturday.

Coach Earl Watson really trusted his defense on Thursday, so that may have been final piece of the puzzle to get him in the first unit. Warren has a bad matchup tonight, but expect him to play over 30 minutes. He should be owned everywhere.
Sat, Dec 31, 2016 08:12:00 PM

T.J. Warren made just 2-of-11 from the field for four points against the Raptors on Thursday, adding three rebounds, one assist and two steals in 27 minutes.

Sure, we can talk about the bad game after his big 23-point Wednesday. However, the fact that coach Earl Watson trusted Warren on defense with a lead and giving him 12 minutes in the fourth shows he's going to be in the mix in almost all circumstances -- he was the only Sun to play all 12. Warren will be a bit inconsistent because he's so scoring dependent, but he's worth owning in all leagues.
Fri, Dec 30, 2016 01:27:00 AM

T.J. Warren scored 23 points in a 119-98 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

It's probably safe to say that Warren is back. It's also worth a mention he's played six minutes at shooting guard in the last two games while logging the rest of his time at the three. Plus, P.J. Tucker looked flat while it's another good sign to see coach Earl Watson wanting to play Dragan Bender at the four. He's still probably not going to be quite as awesome as he was to start the season, but obviously Warren has to be owned in all leagues.

T.J. Warren picked it up off the bench against the 76ers on Friday, scoring 19 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He looked a lot better in this game. After the game on the Suns broadcast, Devin Booker said Warren isn't quite all the way back and he's still doing some rehab work. Plus, coach Earl Watson hinted that he likes his starting group, so Warren may be a sixth man for them. Tony Buckets should still get big minutes and can live up to his moniker, so he's worth owning in all leagues.
Sat, Dec 24, 2016 12:22:00 AM

T.J. Warren scored 19 points with five rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Coach Earl Watson always talks about how P.J. Tucker is such an underrated defender, but Watson actually used Tucker next to Warren quite a bit tonight. Warren had two really rough games since his return on Saturday with just two points combined, so this line shows he's likely all the way back. Go ahead and add him.
Thu, Dec 22, 2016 12:07:00 AM

T.J. Warren played 10 minutes in Monday's loss to the Wolves, finishing scoreless with one rebound and one assist.

He missed all five of his shots from the field, but keep in mind that he's still trying to get his legs under him after a lengthy absence. Coach Earl Watson ran P.J. Tucker into the ground for 36 minutes and Jared Dudley logged 22 minutes off the bench, but most of those minutes should start shifting to Warren soon as the Suns keep piling up the losses. Warren can be treated as an elite stash until the Suns unleash him.
Mon, Dec 19, 2016 11:21:00 PM

T.J. Warren returned to action on Saturday against the Thunder, playing 14 minutes with two points, two rebounds and one block.

The Suns could wind up limiting him for a while after he's missed the last 13 games due to what they called a "minor head injury" last month. The team has hinted at playing their young guys more, so Warren should get some run once he gets his legs back. As long as you're aware that it'll take some time for him to heat up, go ahead and grab him.
