T.J. Warren put on an off-the-ball clinic against the Wolves on Wednesday, scoring a career-high 17 points on 8-of-10 from the field with five boards, one steal and one turnover in 19 minutes.
It was some of the most impressive cutting you'll ever see from a rookie. After the game, P.J. Tucker said Warren was "unbelievable" with his great cuts while Marcus Thornton said he's never seen a player score so much on cuts like Warren did. He's incredibly savvy and there's no doubt the rookie can score after setting the single-season scoring record at NC State. Warren has absolutely earned his playing time and it wouldn't be a shock to see him get in the upper 20s in the near future. All that said, he won't have too high of a ceiling in standard leagues due to a lack of treys and defensive stats. Give him a long look in points leagues, though. Mar 12 - 1:16 AM

Date:

T.J. Warren is expected to get at least 15-20 minutes the rest of the season.

There are a couple non-Warren things to note here with this statement: Brandon Knight (ankle) sure doesn't sound like he's going to be back any time soon, and it's also becoming more clear than Gerald Green is behind Warren. As for T.J., he's really grown as a scorer and is close to making 70 percent at the rim in the NBA. His upside isn't too high in standard leagues, but he's well worth watching in DFS and in points leagues.
Mar 11 - 8:53 PM

T.J. Warren played a career-high 24 minutes on Monday and matched his career high with 11 points, adding two rebounds and one assist.

He's poised for more playing time with the Brandon Knight (ankle) injury and the Suns are likely going to give him a look going forward. Warren played some stretch four at summer league and he's basically getting minutes at three positions right now. The NC State product doesn't take treys and he's not much of a producer on the defensive side, so he's more of a player to watch in points formats or deep leagues.
Mar 10 - 12:45 AM

T.J. Warren could get some time at shooting guard against the Warriors on Monday.

Coach Jeff Hornacek has been true to his word with statements like this, so we could see Warren get close to 20 minutes tonight. Warren played garbage time on Saturday and looked good in the process. His upside isn't high, so just keep an eye on him unless you're in a 20-team league. This also means less minutes for Gerald Green and Archie Goodwin.
Mar 9 - 8:49 PM

Suns head coach Jeff Hornacek said T.J. Warren has been earning more playing time due to his energy.

"We all know he can put the ball in the basket but what it is with him is he's probably our only guy who cuts," Hornacek said. "Everyone else wants to stand around and wait for a kick out pass. T.J. is a guy who, when he sees an opening or his man turns his head, he'll cut." The rookie is now averaging 15.8 minutes per game over the Suns' last five contests and is worth a look in deeper leagues as long as he can keep earning playing time.
Mar 5 - 10:21 AM

T.J. Warren looked good in garbage time against the Spurs with nine points, one rebound and two assists in 18 minutes.

He had a lot of buzz over the summer and in the preseason and he might actually get some playing time with Brandon Knight getting hurt tonight. However, Warren's fantasy ceiling is low right now because he doesn't really take treys and he's not too great with defensive stats. You have to be in a very deep league to look at him.
Feb 28 - 11:33 PM

T.J. Warren played 20 minutes off the bench against the Nuggets on Wednesday with 10 points and seven rebounds.

He played the majority of his minutes at small forward tonight after logging just nine minutes on Monday. Warren was one of the stars in Las Vegas Summer League and had a couple bright spots in the D-League, but his upside isn't great. He's only an option in extremely deep leagues.
Feb 26 - 1:32 AM

T.J. Warren and Tyler Ennis have been recalled from the NBA D-League and will be available to play against the Kings on Sunday.

Warren is currently out of the rotation so he likely won't see any action unless the game gets out of hand. Ennis is also buried on the depth chart in Phoenix, and would need a few injuries in the Suns' backcourt before he would see meaningful minutes on the court. Leave Warren and Ennis on the wire.
Feb 8 - 9:55 AM

T.J. Warren and Tyler Ennis have been recalled to join the Suns while Archie Goodwin and Reggie Bullock have been sent down to the D-League.

This news doesn't have much of an impact unless the Suns get into garbage time. Warren was a stud at summer league, but he hasn't made many strides in the NBA this season. He has played well in the D-League and scored 40 points on Friday.
Feb 7 - 5:45 PM

T.J. Warren and Tyler Ennis have been sent down to the NBA D-League on Wednesday.

Both players are currently buried on the depth chart in Phoenix and are not on the fantasy radar in almost any league. Leave Warren and Ennis on the wire.
Feb 4 - 1:01 PM

The Suns have sent T.J. Warren down to the NBA D-League on Thursday.

He likely won't see minutes with the Suns as long as they are in the playoff hunt, so owners can continue to ignore him outside of ridiculously deep leagues.
Jan 22 - 2:40 PM

The Phoenix Suns have recalled T.J. Warren, Tyler Ennis, and Archie Goodwin from the NBA D-league on Wednesday.

They will be available to play against the Thunder on Wednesday, but they likely won't be in the rotation. All three players remain off the fantasy radar in almost all leagues for now.
Wed, Dec 31, 2014 01:38:00 PM

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

Warren typically only gets off the bench during garbage time, so he'll get some much-needed experience down in the D-League. He can remain on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.

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.

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.
