T.J. Warren (minor head injury) is hoping to get in some "light activity" at practice "very soon," according to Suns sideline reporter Kevin Ray.
Warren is in good spirits for what the Suns continue to call a minor head injury. He is still unlikely to be back for this week and general manager Ryan McDonough said it'll be "weeks" for Warren to return. He is with the team and is sitting on the bench in street clothes for Sunday. With Warren out, P.J. Tucker, Dragan Bender and Brandon Knight should get slight bumps. Nov 27 - 4:09 PM

T.J. Warren (head) said he'll be be all right in a couple weeks.

"I was feeling under the weather," Warren said about his illness last weekend. "I went to the hospital and they ran some tests. And then everything came back fine. Just a little minor head injury that I had. I should be all right." He added he did not suffer a concussion and also said he's still a little under the weather. Warren's two-week prognosis of himself coincides with GM Ryan McDonough saying "a matter of weeks" earlier this week. While Warren is out, we'll see more P.J. Tucker, Tyler Ulis and Dragan Bender in the second unit behind the three-guard lineups.

General manager Ryan McDonough said he thinks T.J. Warren (head) will be out for "a matter of weeks."

"Anytime that there is a head injury, as an organization, we want to be very cautious with it," McDonough said. "He was feeling a little off in the Indiana game on Friday. We took him out of the game and ran a bunch of tests. I’m not going to elaborate too much on it, but he’s going to be fine. He’s starting to get back in the flow." The Suns have ruled him out indefinitely with a minor head injury. Warren reportedly had an illness heading into last week's game and he was hospitalized after his nine minutes of action. P.J. Tucker, Brandon Knight, Dragan Bender and Jared Dudley should benefit.

T.J. Warren (head) will be out indefinitely due to a minor head injury.

According to the team, he is expected to resume basketball activities in the near future. Warren was on the injury report due to an illness since he only played nine minutes last Friday. With Warren out, the Suns will go with more three-guard lineups, play P.J. Tucker slightly more and also get a look at Dragan Bender and Tyler Ulis.

T.J. Warren (illness) and Tyson Chandler (personal) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Magic.

With Warren out, the Suns will likely deploy a three-guard lineup of Eric Bledsoe, Devin Booker and Brandon Knight. Warren is a hold in standard leagues after a strong start to the season and will hopefully be back with the team in time for Friday's home game vs. the Wolves.
Nov 22 - 9:31 PM

T.J. Warren (illness) will not play Monday vs. the Wizards.

Warren still isn't traveling with the team after being forced out of Friday's game due to the illness, and it sounds like there's a chance he could miss Wednesday's game in Orlando as well. P.J. Tucker started in Warren's place on Saturday, but Earl Watson is contemplating going with a three-guard starting lineup on Monday featuring Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight, Devin Booker (ankle), Marquese Chriss and Alex Len.

T.J. Warren (illness) is out for Saturday against the 76ers.

He only lasted nine minutes on Friday before he was ruled out. Warren was taken to the hospital for treatment, so this isn't just a light cold. He should be considered questionable for Monday against the Wizards. For tonight, P.J. Tucker will be back in the starting lineup while Dragan Bender and Derrick Jones Jr. could get in the mix. For what it's worth, Tucker played the entire second half on Friday.
Nov 19 - 4:34 PM

T.J. Warren (flu-like symptoms) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Sixers.

Warren played only nine minutes in the first half of Friday's contest due to the illness. P.J. Tucker and Jared Dudley will see an uptick in minutes if Warren doesn't play Saturday. Tucker played 39 minutes on Friday, scoring seven points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Dudley finished with 16 points, six assists and five rebounds in 32 minutes.
Nov 19 - 1:00 PM

T.J. Warren (illness) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Pacers.

This likely explains why he didn't look so great in the first half with two points and one turnover in nine minutes. Warren should be considered questionable for Saturday's game vs. the 76ers. P.J. Tucker and Jared Dudley will pick up the slack in the second half.
Nov 18 - 8:21 PM

T.J. Warren didn't play after the five-minute mark in the third quarter on Wednesday, finishing with just eight points, two steals and one rebound in 18 minutes.

Warren shot 2-of-11 from the field with both of his makes coming from downtown, but coach Earl Watson went away from him down the stretch, primarily in favor of Jared Dudley. This snaps a streak of 11 straight games in double-digits for Warren and there's no reason to think his benching will become a frequent occurrence.
Nov 17 - 12:37 AM

T.J. Warren scored 18 points during a 122-104 loss to the Nets on Saturday, adding three rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block and one turnover.

Tony Buckets just keeps living up to the nickname and he's doing even more than just his well-rounded scoring. Excluding the corners, Warren is an above-average shooter in every part of the halfcourt. He's also stepped up with 1.1 steals, 5.2 boards and 0.6 treys. Keep him rolling.
Nov 13 - 2:17 AM

T.J. Warren scored 18 points during a 107-100 win over the Pistons on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, one assist, one block and two turnovers in 38 minutes.

He led the team in minutes tonight and is getting serious burn in his last five with 37.2 minutes per game, averaging 19.4 points, 5.0 boards, 1.0 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.4 blocks and 0.6 treys. The efficiency and non-scoring stats are falling off, but Warren is locked and loaded in the Suns starting lineup this year as a potential breakout all season.
Nov 10 - 2:10 AM

T.J. Warren scored 22 points in a losing effort on Sunday, hitting 9-of-20 field goals with two 3-pointers, six boards, three assists and two steals.

Warren committed just one turnover in 39 minutes and it's getting to the point that we won't even comment on a line like this -- he's had a minimum of 14 points, four boards and one steal in each of the Suns' seven games to start the season. Congratulations to those owners who stole him on draft day.
Nov 7 - 12:59 AM

T.J. Warren scored 18 points in 40 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday with six rebounds, one assist, four steals and one 3-pointer.

He's one of the best cutters in the NBA and sliced up the Pelicans with a cut to the basket for a game-winning dunk. Warren is completely locked and he's getting all sorts of stuff drawn up for him. He has to be owned in all leagues. Simple as that.
Nov 4 - 11:56 PM

T.J. Warren kept rolling in an overtime win over the Blazers on Wednesday, scoring 27 points with seven rebounds, two steals, one block and no turnovers in 38 minutes.

Coach Earl Watson went with Warren next to P.J. Tucker down the stretch for this game. Warren is one of the hottest non-All Star scorers in the NBA with three 26-plus scoring games in his last four. In that span, Warren averaged 24.5 points, 6.5 boards, 0.8 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.5 blocks and 0.8 treys on 53.3 percent from the field and 83.3 percent from the line. Tony Buckets is just too hot to leave on any waiver wire right now.
