T.J. Warren went off for 24 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and six turnovers in Tuesday's 95-91 loss to the Hawks.
Devin Booker (ankle, rest) sat this one out, so Warren was the clear focal point of the offense. He finished 11-of-20 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line, and the fact that he logged 40 minutes suggests that the foot contusion that held him out of a pair of games last week is behind him. Warren should be owned in all leagues and his owners can deploy him three more times this week. Mar 28 - 11:46 PM

T.J. Warren (foot) hit the ground running in his return, scoring 21 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, four steals and no turnovers in a 120-106 loss to the Hornets on Sunday.

A foot contusion cost him two games, but coach Earl Watson turned his second-best scorer loose with 39 minutes. In his three previous games before sustaining the injury, Warren played a whopping 41 minutes per game, so he looks like he'll be set for minutes in the upper 30s. The Suns need offense in the worst way and they play at a blazing tempo, so things are looking up for Warren to finish this season. He should be owned in all leagues.
Mar 26 - 4:06 PM

T.J. Warren (left foot contusion) is listed in the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Hornets.

He was "expected" to play, but now we have a little more confirmation that he will return from a two-game absence. Warren was probably dropped in a lot of head-to-head leagues, so it makes a lot of sense to pick him back up.

T.J. Warren (left foot contusion) is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Hornets.

He should be good to go after a two-game absence. The Suns have said very little about Warren's injury, but the good news is that this is not the same foot that he fractured last year. Unless we hear of any restrictions, Warren's owners will want to plug him back into active lineups -- he's averaging 17.3 points on 58.3 percent shooting with 7.6 rebounds since the All-Star break. Derrick Jones. Jr. and Jared Dudley are the biggest losers with Warren back.

T.J. Warren (left foot contusion) will not play on Friday vs. the Celtics.

He wasn't expected to play, but now we have official confirmation. With Derrick Jones Jr. (wrist) also out, the Suns will only have eight available players. The Suns play again on Sunday, but Warren's owners may have to drop him in must-win situations.
Mar 24 - 7:23 PM

T.J. Warren (left foot contusion) is listed as questionable but is not expected to play Friday night vs. the Celtics.

This will be the second straight game Warren has missed. It has to sting Warren's fantasy owners because, prior to the injury, he was putting up phenomenal numbers. Warren was averaging 17.3 points on 58.3 percent shooting and 7.6 rebounds in the Suns first 13 games following the All-Star break. Derrick Jones Jr. (right wrist) has also been ruled for Friday, which means the Suns will have only eight active players available.
Mar 24 - 1:12 PM

T.J. Warren (left foot contusion) will not play against the Nets on Thursday and Derrick Jones Jr. will start.

Warren's foot injury will keep him out of action for the first time in 2017. This is not the same foot injury that Warren fractured last year, so hopefully it's just a day-to-day thing. Jones Jr. should get a decent amount of run in the first unit while Jarell Eddie should see some added run.
Mar 23 - 7:13 PM

T.J. Warren (foot) is closer to doubtful for Thursday against the Nets.

Coach Earl Watson wouldn't say for sure on if Warren could give it a go. If not, the Suns would likely give more minutes to Jarell Eddie and Derrick Jones Jr. There should be another update shortly.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: While Warren's absence may not lead to a bench player seeing a huge uptick in fantasy value, it certainly raises the floor/ceiling of Devin Booker, who sees a 6.1% usage spike with Warren, Chandler, Bledsoe, Knight and Bender off the floor. Both Booker and Tyler Ulis should approach the 40 minute mark against one of the NBA's weakest defenses, and considering the game should stay close, both players are elite targets.
Mar 23 - 6:16 PM

T.J. Warren is listed as questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Nets with a left foot contusion.

Game notes aren't very reliable, but given how cautious the Suns are being with injuries these days, Warren's owners will want to be on the lookout for an update. If he's unable to give it a go, we should see more of Derrick Jones Jr., Jared Dudley and Jarell Eddie. None of those players are pickups, though. Warren is putting up averages of 16.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.1 blocks and 0.9 steals since the break.

Suns GM Ryan McDonough said the team is thrilled with T.J. Warren's progress.

"His field-goal percentage from the All-Star break is off the charts," McDonough said. "He’s improved his rebounding, especially defensively, which is what we need with [Tyson Chandler] out and [Earl Watson] playing a smaller lineup." Since the P.J. Tucker trade, Warren is averaging 17.5 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 blocks, returning top-20 value in standard leagues. "Everybody knows I can score, so I just want to do all the other things that keep me on the floor," Warren said. After Sunday's game vs. Detroit, the Suns play four games in each of the next two weeks.
Mar 19 - 9:54 AM

T.J. Warren turned in a gem during a 109-103 loss to the Magic on Friday, scoring 26 points with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks.

He made all 10 from the line and 8-of-13 from the field. The Suns are suddenly in dire straits for offense with Eric Bledsoe out for the year and Devin Booker a little banged up. Warren is coming off a 24-point game when Bledsoe didn't play on Wednesday, so clearly his fantasy arrow is pointing way up. He should be owned everywhere.
Mar 18 - 1:53 AM

T.J. Warren scored 24 points with nine rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 41 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

He likely has some added shots coming his way. Warren is actually more efficient when he's not next to Eric Bledsoe to go with the 0.9 usage rate bump. Warren is going to play huge minutes and is part of the Suns' future for 2020 and beyond, so expect him to have a strong finish and not be shut down.
Mar 16 - 2:04 AM

T.J. Warren grabbed a career-high 13 rebounds against the Lakers on Thursday, adding 17 points, three assists and three blocks in 39 minutes.

That's his second-straight double-double and only his third of his career, so Warren is doing a great job on the glass. Interestingly, coach Earl Watson actually talked about Warren hitting the glass a little harder before the game. Warren is getting some heavy run, his scoring is back up, and should be locked and loaded the rest of the way.
Mar 10 - 1:28 AM

T.J. Warren double-doubled vs. the Wizards on Tuesday with 15 points and 10 rebounds.

This was just his first double-double of the season and second of his career. He finished 7-of-13 from the field with three assists and one triple, and he's been on fire since the break with averages of 17.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.7 blocks and 0.8 steals in his previous six games. He should eat against the Lakers on Thursday.
Mar 8 - 12:34 AM

T.J. Warren scored 16 points with eight rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 27 minutes against the Hornets on Thursday.

He actually lost some minutes to Derrick Jones Jr., but it wasn't because Warren wasn't playing well. Warren scored 12 points in the third quarter and he actually played some solid defense. He is worth owning in standard leagues and should be back up to minutes in the mid-30s against the Thunder on Friday.
