T.J. Warren will start at small forward for the season opener vs. the Kings on Wednesday.
There's a chance that P.J. Tucker (back) could be ready, but the Suns will bring him along slowly. Warren will play some SF and PF this season and averaged 11.0 points, 3.1 boards, 0.8 steals and 0.6 3-pointers in 22.8 minutes per game during the preseason, but he's more of a low-end player to own in standard leagues for now.

T.J. Warren started on Wednesday and scored 10 points on 5-of-9 shooting in 28 minutes, but he also committed four turnovers with zero rebounds, assists, steals or blocks.

Head coach Earl Watson suggested that at times he'll use Warren as a PF in a very small lineup with three guards. "[Opponents] can stay big if they want to," Watson said. "Who’s going to guard T.J.? That’s a perfect opportunity for him to flourish in that lineup." As promising as that sounds, Warren's statistical limitations make him hard to recommend as more than flier pick.
Oct 13 - 12:22 AM

T.J. Warren scored 14 points with eight rebounds, one steal and one block in 26 minutes on Friday.

He went 7-of-18 from the field as the Suns really fed him the rock. Interestingly, Warren didn't take any 3-pointers tonight and he's only taken three in all of his 80 preseason minutes. He will be the opening night starter at small forward, but the low upside makes him only a late-round flier.
Oct 8 - 12:44 AM

T.J. Warren finished a loss to Utah on Wednesday with 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting, four rebounds, three blocks, one assist and one steal.

Warren started out slow but eventually found his groove offensively, scoring eight points in the final four minutes of the first half. He's expected to start at SF on opening night with P.J. Tucker (back) on the mend, which makes him worth a look in deep leagues.
Oct 6 - 12:51 AM

T.J. Warren scored eight points with two rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 24 minutes against the Spurs on Monday.

That's a good amount of playing time for a guy coming off a foot surgery back in February. Warren is going to start at small forward for the regular season, but he's going to have to add some defensive output and other stats to go with his scoring to buoy his fantasy value in standard leagues.
Oct 4 - 12:37 AM

T.J. Warren is expected to start at small forward this season.

P.J. Tucker (back) is doubtful for the opener, so announcing Warren as the starter means something. He makes a lot of his money as an off-ball scorer for his backdoor cutting, but Warren's unorthodox 3-point shooting improved to 40.0 percent last year -- that might not be sustainable. His upside isn't too high, so fantasy owners might not want to be too aggressive in standard drafts.
Oct 3 - 3:35 PM

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.
Feb 16 - 5:58 PM

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.
