T.J. Warren set career-highs on Sunday with 11 rebounds and three blocks, while scoring 15 points with one steal and zero turnovers in 30 minutes of action.
Warren made 7-of-13 shots and is worth a speculative pickup at this point -- he dropped 28 points vs. the Warriors on Friday and is averaging 19.3 points in his previous four games. He has 3-point range yet is shooting at a 53.7 percent clip this season, and chips in enough rebounds and steals to qualify as a late-round value with upside. Nov 29 - 9:33 PM

T.J. Warren erupted for a career-high 28 points on 12-of-16 shooting during Friday's blowout loss to the Warriors, adding six boards, two assists, two steals, two treys and two turnovers through 35 minutes of action.

Warren's been en fuego over his past three outings, with averages of 20.7 points on an unsustainable 61.4 percent shooting from the field, but the problem is he's not bringing much else to the stat sheet (3.3 boards, 1.3 assists, 0.7 triples, 0.7 steals). He's worth an add in deep leagues for those looking to ride the hot streak, but just know his limitations and that he's not going to be shooting 61.4 percent from the field for an entire season. He does, however, make for an intriguing addition in points formats.
Nov 28 - 4:06 AM

T.J. Warren scored 18 points on 8-of-13 from the field against the Pelicans on Wednesday with one rebound in 27 minutes.

He was up to his usual tricks of cutting to the basket and getting easy looks. Unfortunately, Warren just doesn't do much else on the stat sheet outside of scoring, so he's not a particularly strong pickup in standard leagues. If you're in a points league, he's worth a look.
Nov 26 - 1:36 AM

T.J. Warren made 7-of-15 from the field for 16 points against the Spurs on Monday with three rebounds, two assists and one block in 26 minutes.

He had a terrific game and had a career high in field goal attempts. Warren is usually depending on his guards to get him the ball, but he was able to score on his own -- a big part of his game at Summer League. Warren's upside isn't quite worth keeping on a standard-league roster and he'll likely need P.J. Tucker to miss time to gain enough value to be added.
Nov 24 - 1:46 AM

T.J. Warren got hot from downtown vs. the Pelicans, scoring nine points with three 3-pointers and two rebounds in 21 minutes of action.

He had four 3-pointers all season prior to this outburst, which came against a New Orleans defense that has allowed opponents to shoot a league-high 40.1 percent from deep this year. Warren has been solid offensively all season, shooting 52.1 percent from the field, but he's chipping in a mere 3.4 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.1 blocks. He's a deep-league option until the supporting stats increase.
Nov 22 - 9:06 PM

T.J. Warren returned from a one-game absence on Friday with no points and two assists in 11 minutes.

The Suns focused on the 3-pointer tonight, which isn't Warren's forte. He should be looking at more minutes going forward, but his upside isn't quite high enough to own in standard leagues.
Nov 21 - 2:57 AM

T.J. Warren (illness) will return from a one-game absence for Friday's game against the Nuggets.

With Warren back in action, P.J. Tucker's minutes will return to the mid-20s which isn't enough time for him to produce statistics worthy of ownership in standard leagues. Warren was rolling before missing Wednesday's game, averaging 15.0 points, 4.0 boards and 1.3 steals on 63.3 percent shooting over his last four, so he's worth a look in deep leagues.
Nov 19 - 4:12 PM

T.J. Warren (illness) will not play against the Bulls on Wednesday.

That would mean more minutes would go to P.J. Tucker. Archie Goodwin has also played a handful of three, so he'll be looking at more minutes, too. Warren was playing really well, so this is a tough blow for his fantasy owners.
Nov 18 - 8:51 PM

T.J. Warren (illness) was not present during Wednesday morning's shootaround, and he is questionable to play vs. the Bulls.

If Warren is forced to sit out Wednesday's game, P.J. Tucker's minutes would likely climb to the 30s, and he'd be someone to consider deploying as a punt play in DFS. Stay tuned.
Nov 18 - 1:41 PM

T.J. Warren scored a career-high 19 points against the Lakers on Monday, adding four rebounds and two steals in 24 minutes.

He was 9-of-13 from the field with nine of his shots coming in the paint. The Suns haven't really played him or P.J. Tucker at the four sans Markieff Morris and they split the minutes at the three tonight. Warren has been remarkably efficient in his last four with a 23.3 usage rate and a 69.8 true shooting percentage, averaging 15.5 points, 3.5 boards, 1.0 steals and 0.3 blocks. His upside isn't quite strong enough to grab in standard leagues, but he's certainly worth a look.
Nov 17 - 1:37 AM

T.J. Warren matched his career-high 18 points against the Clippers on Thursday with one rebound, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer on 7-of-10 from the field.

Markieff Morris (knee) missed time, which opened up some chances for the Suns to go small in the second half. Coach Jeff Hornacek is not afraid to use P.J. Tucker at power forward, which would open up minutes for Warren. His upside still isn't too high in standard leagues, so most owners can take a wait-and-see approach here.
Nov 13 - 1:28 AM

T.J. Warren looked good in 23 minutes vs. the Thunder, scoring 17 points on 7-of-10 FGs and 3-of-3 FGs, with two rebounds and two turnovers.

The lack of supporting stats make this a hollow game, fantasy-wise, but Warren is clearly earning more minutes with his play off the bench. Although his current role isn't conducive to value in 12-team leagues, he's a nice rest-of-season prospect in deeper leagues.
Nov 8 - 9:53 PM

T.J. Warren played just 16 minutes off the bench on Friday, scoring five points with three rebounds and one steal.

Warren will probably have a good game every 3-4 contests but fade back into fantasy mediocrity, at least as things stand right now in Phoenix. He's a solid young player but until he expands his production across more categories he has an uphill climb.
Nov 7 - 1:55 AM

T.J. Warren played a season-high 27 minutes vs. the Kings, scoring 13 points on 6-of-9 shooting with one 3-pointer, four rebounds, two assists and one steal.

He made a pair of mid-range jumpers and took three of his attempts at the rim, showing nice poise and shot selection for a 22-year-old with 44 games of NBA experience. He played the entire fourth quarter until the game was out of reach with 2:42 remaining, and is slowly creeping onto the standard-league radar as his playing time increases.
Nov 4 - 11:58 PM

T.J. Warren played most of the clutch playing time on Monday against the Clippers, finishing with 11 points, five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 21 minutes.

He continues to shine as a cutter and he also had four offensive boards tonight. Warren hasn't quite closed the gap on P.J. Tucker yet and he's been around 20 minutes in each of his four games. He's more of a 16-team guy right now.
