T.J. Warren scored his first NBA points on Monday in Boston, totaling seven points, three rebounds and one 3-pointer in 12 minutes.
He picked up some extra run with P.J. Tucker missing the flight to Boston, but he probably will be out of the rotation upon Tucker's return. Of course, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Tucker get suspended. Warren can be left on the wire for now. Nov 17 - 11:32 PM

Suns recall F T.J. Warren from the D-League.

Warren showed some flash during summer league, but he's yet to make his mark in the NBA and has a lot to learn before he does.
Nov 17 - 11:36 AM

The Phoenix Suns have assigned T.J. Warren to their D-League affiliate in Bakersfield.

Warren made his NBA debut by playing one minute against the Warriors on Sunday, but Suns head coach Jeff Hornacek wants the rookie to get some playing time and the only way to do so is in the D-League right now. Hornacek mentioned Warren's stint in the D-League should be brief, but owners in all but the deepest of leagues can move on from Warren for now.

T.J. Warren (thumb) made his NBA debut on Sunday, but only played one minute in a win vs. the Warriors.

It is great that he has finally recovered from his thumb injury, but he will likely need an injury to the Phoenix frontcourt to matter in most fantasy leagues. Warren is known for his scoring prowess and he could do great things if he gets a chance, which he may not this season. Owners in deep leagues should keep an idle eye on him.

T.J. Warren (thumb) practiced on Saturday and will suit up for Sunday's game.

He likely won't be in the rotation just yet, but could see a few minutes as he works his way back from a thumb injury. Warren is known for his scoring prowess and could be a spark for the Suns off of the bench this season, but until he carves out a decent role he won't be worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 9 - 10:37 AM

Rookie T.J. Warren (thumb) participated in shootaround on Friday and will suit up for Sunday's game.

Warren will practice on Saturday and it would be sort of surprising if he jumped right into a crowded rotation. He'll need to make some serious progress before we pay him much notice.
Nov 8 - 3:42 AM

T.J. Warren will be out for 1-2 weeks after fracturing his thumb on Tuesday.

Warren is buried on the Suns' depth chart, and it'll take more than a few injuries for him to gain any sort of relevancy in standard leagues.
Oct 26 - 9:44 AM

Suns rookie forward T.J. Warren suffered a small crack in his left thumb on Wednesday, and has no timetable on a return.

This hurts the Suns' in the depth department a bit, but should have no fantasy implications.
Oct 23 - 3:16 AM

Suns rookie T.J. Warren hurt his left thumb during Tuesday's game and he'll be re-examined on Wednesday.

His thumb got caught in one of the Lakers jerseys, leaving his status uncertain for Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers. The injury doesn't sound serious, but regardless of the diagnosis it wouldn't be surprising if he's held out until Friday's finale as a precaution.
Oct 22 - 1:43 AM

Coach Jeff Hornacek told rookie T.J. Warren that his team is "not playing a pickup game" during practice on Saturday.

The buzz on Warren has subsided a bit since his impressive summer league. It seems obvious that Marcus Morris is going to start at small forward on opening night with P.J. Tucker suspended so Warren is unlikely to have much value this season. He does have some upside in keeper leagues, though.
Oct 20 - 11:19 AM

Suns rookie T.J. Warren is working hard to improve his 3-point shooting.

"The 3s, if he can make those, he'd be a dangerous player as he goes on through his career," said coach Jeff Hornacek. "He's got all the mid­range stuff, he's got great hands inside and he's got a knack." Warren could enter the rotation at SF on opening night, with P.J. Tucker serving a three-game suspension, but he faces stiff competition from Gerald Green, Marcus Morris and possibly Anthony Tolliver.
Oct 13 - 12:49 AM

T.J. Warren looked fantastic in his 13 minutes of action against the Nuggets on Friday, making 4-of-8 from the field for 10 points with six rebounds, one turnover and two 3-pointers.

He sure can score and the Suns let him get a little more burn tonight. Warren will likely be in the rotation to start the season while P.J. Tucker is suspended, but probably won't be worth drafting in most leagues. It's worth mentioning he made 2-of-4 from beyond the arc, which was viewed as a major weakness.
Oct 11 - 12:48 AM

Rookie T.J. Warren played just five minutes on Wednesday, hitting a 3-pointer which accounted for his only points of the night.

Warren may be an afterthought for the Suns this season, as they appear to be loaded on the wings. Especially if they're prepared to play Marcus Morris at small forward.
Oct 9 - 1:36 AM

T.J. Warren has been covering Marcus Morris and P.J. Tucker at practice.

Tucker has said he likes how Warren plays hard and they're going at each other every day. This is a bit of a hint that Warren is the second-string small forward on the Suns, which means Gerald Green's minutes are going to be extremely hard to come by.
Oct 4 - 1:04 PM

Suns sign F T.J. Warren.

He was on the second team for Las Vegas Summer League and he showed his style of play at NC State could translate to the NBA. Warren is going to start the season as P.J. Tucker's backup, but he could crack the starting lineup with Tucker possibly being suspended for a DUI charge. If he develops a 3-point shot, he could become a terrific scorer and fantasy asset in a couple seasons.
