T.J. Warren made 13-of-20 shots to finish Sunday's win vs. Chicago with 27 points, adding seven rebounds, two blocks, one steal and one assist in 33 minutes.
The scoring leaps out, of course, but owners in category-based leagues will appreciate Warren's defensive stats tonight -- he came in averaging 0.7 steals and 0.8 blocks, and any increase in those categories will give him a nice boost. Warren is proving himself as a go-to option offensively, after Devin Booker, and the rebuilding Suns will feed him the ball all season. Nov 19 - 11:05 PM

T.J. Warren scored 35 points with six rebounds, one block, one steal and one turnover in 39 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.

Tony Buckets knows how to live up to his nickname and he matched his season high in minutes. He's one of the most crafty 15-feet-and-in players in the NBA, but he's really improved on shooting overall. After making just 30.3 percent on jumpers last year, Warren has upped that to 40.7 percent this year. The steals and blocks have subsided a bit, so Warren has only been flirting with mid-round value in standard leagues. He should be better and get closer to top-50 value soon.
Nov 12 - 2:08 AM

T.J. Warren made 7-of-16 from the field for 16 points with six rebounds, one assist and one block in 32 minutes against the Heat on Wednesday.

While this shooting line wasn't terrible, Warren is in one of his worst shooting slumps of his career with his fourth-consecutive game under 50 percent from the field. On the other hand, his usage rate, blocks, minutes and rebounding are all on the rise, so Warren looks poised for a career year as a mid-round guy. Perhaps even closer to early-round output.
Nov 9 - 12:16 AM

T.J. Warren played 36 minutes on Monday and hit 8-of-19 shots for 20 points, nine boards, two assists, two steals and three blocks in a loss to the Nets.

Warren has looked good in his two games since suffering a head injury, averaging 18.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.5 blocks on 15-of-37 shooting. He hasn't hit a 3-pointer in his last three games, but they're coming. Crisis averted, as Warren missed a big chunk of last season with a head injury.
Nov 6 - 11:45 PM

T.J. Warren (head) scored 17 points on 7-of-18 shooting vs. the Spurs on Sunday, adding five rebounds without any assists, steals, blocks or 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

Warren went through some drills on Saturday and was apparently no worse for the wear, as his struggles tonight had more to do with the Spurs' defense. He missed 13 games last season due to a "minor head injury" so it was great just to see him playing tonight, two days after a scary hit. Keep him locked-in for the Suns' upcoming four-game week.
Nov 5 - 10:18 PM

Updating a previous report, T.J. Warren (head) will play on Sunday.

Warren went through non-contact work on Saturday and must not have had any setbacks. There's no word of any restrictions and owners should get him active wherever possible.
Nov 5 - 5:41 PM

The Suns reportedly expect T.J. Warren (head) to play on Sunday, according to Spurs writer Paul Garcia.

This comes from a reputable source but we'd like to hear it from the Suns' side before running with a 'probable' designation. We should have confirmation very soon.
Nov 5 - 5:35 PM

T.J. Warren (head) did some non-contact drills on Saturday and will be re-evaluated at Sunday morning shootaround.

Coach Jay Triano was encouraged according to this report, so maybe he can get out there for Sunday. This would be great news after a scary head injury on Friday, causing Warren to miss all of the second half. If he's a go, Josh Jackson would come off the bench and Devin Booker would get some help.
Nov 4 - 7:18 PM

T.J. Warren (headache) "should be fine" and will be evaluated in San Antonio on Saturday, according to John Gambadoro of 98.7 FM Arizona Sports.

Feel free to define this out however you like, but Warren has missed time for a head injury on two different occasions in the last 12 months. For now, we would still consider him questionable for Sunday against the Spurs. If he's out, Devin Booker will be very busy, other starters should get more usage, and of course Josh Jackson would likely be looking at big minutes.
Nov 4 - 3:39 PM

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

Warren had a really bad head injury last season and a concussion during the preseason, but it's unclear if he's dealing with a concussion right now. If he's forced to miss time, Josh Jackson would see a bump in minutes, while Derrick Jones. Jr. would likely enter the rotation. Warren's night finished with six points and three rebounds in 10 minutes.
Nov 3 - 8:57 PM

T.J. Warren (head) was helped to the locker room in the first quarter on Friday.

He went up for a shot on Enes Kanter and banged his head against Kanter's. Warren was down for about two minutes, and the training staff had to help him to the locker room. He had a bad head injury last year and he also had a concussion in the preseason. Josh Jackson will be looking at big minutes and Troy Daniels will also likely play more.
Nov 3 - 8:05 PM

T.J. Warren carved up the Wizards for a career-high 40 points during a 122-116 win in Washington on Wednesday, adding 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

Break up the Suns? After arguably the worst start to an NBA season, they're on a roll with a 4-1 record since coach Jay Triano took over. They're not going small anymore, so Warren is going to have to share the SF minutes with Josh Jackson. However, Jackson hasn't really fared well and is forcing a lot of stuff. Warren went off in the fourth quarter to help the Suns earn a win on Tuesday and he scored 17 in the third today. He's as hot as anyone and he could have a career year in a very fantasy-friendly system.
Nov 1 - 11:23 PM

T.J. Warren was dominant late on Tuesday, finishing 7-of-12 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line for 20 points, 11 rebounds and one block in just 25 minutes.

Warren was invisible to begin the game and he battled foul trouble in the second half, but this is a vivid reminder of his upside. Devin Booker went cold in the second half and Warren took the baton, salvaging value for both DFS and season-long owners. The Suns are building for the future, and Warren is one of their keystones.
Oct 31 - 11:08 PM

T.J. Warren carried the Suns during a 97-88 win over the Jazz on Wednesday, scoring a season-high 27 points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover in 28 minutes.

He exploded in the second half with 20 points in his 16 second-half minutes to give the Suns a second-straight win after their stunningly bad 92-point margin of defeat in the first three games. Warren saw his minutes take a big hit on Monday because Josh Jackson was rolling and coach Jay Triano has said he won't be playing Jackson at the four, so that means these two players will have to split the 48 minutes. The Suns paid Warren for a reason and he should be effective more often than not, so he should be held in standard leagues.
Oct 26 - 2:14 AM

T.J. Warren played 24 minutes at small forward on Monday vs. the Kings, scoring four points on 1-of-6 shooting with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

New head coach Jay Triano split Warren's and Josh Jackson's minutes down the middle and played them exclusively at the three. If the Suns continue to use more traditional lineups, that would be bad news for both players. Warren is still a hold and should be better next time out.
