T.J. Warren failed to score in 26 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Monday, finishing 0-of-3 from the field with three rebounds.
P.J. Tucker had another strong game off the bench, so Warren really needs the Suns to move the veteran so that he can have a stable role. It looked like Warren was starting to turn the corner in February with averages of 13.3 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 31.4 minutes in his previous seven games, but if you're tired of this rollercoaster ride and there's a hot free agent on the wire, we wouldn't blame you for moving on.

T.J. Warren's role was cut sharply on Wednesday, as he played 18 minutes to finish with four points on 2-of-6 shooting, four rebounds and one steal.

"I just want to continue to do what I do best, which is score and finish as much as possible," Warren said before the game. He came in averaging 17.0 points in his previous three games, but coach Earl Watson opted to give most of his minutes to P.J. Tucker tonight. It's a frustrating turn of events, to say the least, and Warren's owners can only hope for more minutes on Friday (vs. the Bulls) and Saturday (at the Rockets).

T.J. Warren scored 20 points on 9-of-16 shooting vs. the Pelicans on Monday.

He added four boards, one assist, two steals and three triples, hitting 2-of-2 from the line. Warren played 33 minutes tonight and has now eclipsed 33+ minutes in three straight games, averaging 17.0 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 block and 1.3 steals in that span. He has really cooled off from beyond the arc which limits his upside, but the minutes should be there and he's worth owning if you're looking for scoring.
Feb 6 - 11:53 PM

T.J. Warren scored 21 points with five rebounds, five assists, one steal, one turnover and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes against the Kings on Friday.

Hey, there he is. Even though Warren had eight games in December to get ready for 2017, his January just wasn't good with his 28.3 minutes per game and not even top-150 value in standard leagues. Almost everyone knew his 2.0 steals per game from November wasn't going to continue, but his efficiency wasn't as good either. He still really only has late-round upside while P.J. Tucker is around, but there are worse players to own.
Feb 4 - 4:18 AM

T.J. Warren struggled with foul trouble on Saturday vs. the Nuggets, scoring six points on 3-of-10 shooting.

He's been very inconsistent lately with just one good game in his last five. He finished with five fouls in 19 minutes tonight, adding five boards and one turnover. His outlook is encouraging with the Suns sliding in the standings and he could benefit from a P.J. Tucker trade, but we don't blame you if you want to bench him right now. He's averaging just 8.6 points and 4.2 rebounds over his last five with not much else.
Jan 29 - 12:20 AM

T.J. Warren scored 21 points with eight rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 41 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

This was his first 20-point game since Jan. 2 and eighth game of the season. It's been a bumpy ride for Warren lately with only 16 points combined in his previous three. On the bright side, the minutes are back up with 32.2 per game over his last five, so he does appear to be trending up for owners in standard leagues.
Jan 27 - 12:49 AM

T.J. Warren scored eight points on 4-of-11 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Wolves.

The minutes were there (30), but Warren was quiet tonight and added just two rebounds, one assist and two turnovers to his name. Warren has scored an average of 5.3 points per game over his last three, but he's a hard player to drop after lighting it up at the beginning of the season. He will try to bounce back on Thursday vs. the Nuggets.
Jan 25 - 12:15 AM

T.J. Warren scored four points with three rebounds and one assist in 21 minutes in Sunday's 115-103 win over the Raptors.

Warren played the fewest minutes since Jan. 3, while P.J. Tucker played 32 minutes tonight. Two days ago, ESPN’s Marc Stein confirmed the Suns are looking for a first-round pick in a P.J. Tucker deal. It appears that Phoenix was showcasing Tucker tonight, which led to fewer minutes for Warren. If Tucker gets traded, Warren could trend upwards, and we had a vivid look at his upside earlier in the season.
Jan 22 - 8:53 PM

T.J. Warren hit just 2-of-6 shots for four points, three rebounds and two assists in Saturday's win over the Knicks.

He was in foul trouble and finished with four of them, but the minutes were there for him to have a better night than this. He was coming off of games of 18, 15 and 12 points, so tonight was a definite disappointment. He was just starting to come back to life, but this was just one game, so let's see if he rights the ship against the Raptors on Sunday.
Jan 21 - 10:22 PM

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.
