Player News - Suns

Date: Team: Pos:

The Suns are still expected to try and trade Morris before the deadline.

He had a scuffle during Wednesday's game and even had his hands around teammate Archie Goodwin's neck, and as much the Suns downplayed the incident, it's clear that both sides need a fresh start. The question now is whether or not another team would want to trade for the mercurial forward, but expect the chatter to heat up right after the All-Star game.

Devin Booker will replace Nerlens Noel (knee) in the Rising Stars game.

Booker probably should have been on the initial roster, but the Team U.S. vs. Team World narrative limited the player pool to a certain extent. Devin has been playing extremely well for Phoenix since being thrust into the rotation with injuries to Eric Bledsoe (knee) and Brandon Knight (groin), and he should be owned in all leagues moving forward as he's put in averages of 17.4 points, 2.0 three-pointers and 3.2 assists per game on 42.4 percent shooting over the past month.

The Suns have assigned Jordan McRae to the D-League.

McRae's second 10-day contract with the Suns expired and he will now join the Bakersfield Jam and play in the D-League's All-Star game on Saturday. The 24-year-old averaged just 4.8 points, 1.0 rebounds, and 1.2 assists and can be left on waivers in all standard leagues.

Brandon Knight (groin) didn't play on Wednesday, as expected.

Knight was never likely to return before the All-Star break, and now the question shifts to his post-break status -- the Suns have been coy about a return date and they may be inclined to shut him down while developing Archie Goodwin and Devin Booker. We should finally get an update during the break, so stay tuned.
Feb 11 - 1:33 AM

Devin Booker had a career-high 10 assists against the Warriors during a 112-108 loss on Wednesday, adding 15 points, seven rebounds, two steals, one 3-pointer and seven turnovers.

Coach Earl Watson loves him and he definitely wants his rookie to be more of a ball-handler. Booker was the first Suns rookie to drop a points-dimes double-double since Steve Nash back in 1996. He looks like a good one and should be owned in all leagues as the Suns give him the keys the rest of this year.

Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len scored six points with seven rebounds, one steal and one block in just 14 minutes against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He's been pretty good when he gets minutes and at least he had some boards, steals and blocks. Considering the mess the Suns are in, Len is a stash as the Suns try to focus on the future.
Feb 11 - 1:16 AM

Orlando Johnson scored nine points with eight rebounds, one steal and three blocks in 28 minutes against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He's ahead of Jordan McRae and the Suns will probably give him a second 10-day deal after the break. Johnson can be ignored in almost all leagues.
Feb 11 - 1:14 AM

Archie Goodwin scored 20 points with two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He'll be in the news tomorrow because Markieff Morris got into it with him and Morris had his hand around Goodwin's neck. There is talk of Brandon Knight (groin) coming back, but Goodwin should remain owned until Knight is on the court.
Feb 11 - 1:12 AM

Markieff Morris had a scuffle with Archie Goodwin in the first half on Wednesday, finishing with 19 points, eight rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one turnover.

It wasn't a minor one and Morris had his hands on Goodwin's throat. The Suns did downplay it after the game. "That’s nothing," Morris said. "That’s part of being a leader, being a big brother." Morris defines leader differently than just about anyone, but Goodwin also had his back. "We family. It happens. I love him like a brother, he loves me. That’s all there is to say about it," Goodwin said. Lastly, coach Earl Watson added Goodwin and Morris used to live together, they're "the closest on the team" and that "the team is not split."

The Raptors may not be all that interested in trading for Markieff Morris or P.J. Tucker.

The initial report that linked Morris and Tucker to the Raptors, while credible, did not come from Toronto's side and GM Masai Ujiri doesn't often make in-season trades. The Raptors also currently own the No. 2 seed out East with a record of 35-16, and Ujri may not want to mess with the team's chemistry by bringing on someone like Morris. For now, it doesn't seem all that likely that Toronto makes a major move at the deadline.

Markieff Morris scored 23 points during a 122-106 loss to the Thunder on Monday with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and six turnovers.

Before the game, Kevin Durant said Markieff is "playing at an All-Star level right now." Morris is playing hard and he's transformed into a different player under coach Earl Watson. Morris likely boosted his trade value and the Suns may be able to get something for him. He should be owned, but a trade will hurt his value a lot.

P.J. Tucker - G/F - Suns

P.J. Tucker scored 16 points with five rebounds, two assists, five steals and two turnovers in 46 minutes against the Thunder on Monday.

He always gets huge minutes when the Suns go up against an elite wing like Kevin Durant. Tucker could be traded next week, but he's played well enough to own in all leagues right now. A trade would obviously cripple his value.
Feb 9 - 1:05 AM

Archie Goodwin scored 20 points with four rebounds, seven assists and two turnovers against the Thunder on Monday night.

Coach Earl Watson said after the game he thought Goodwin had a "solid" effort and he really liked that Goodwin only had two turnovers. It'll be interesting to see what happens when Brandon Knight comes back, but Goodwin should still be owned in all leagues.
Feb 9 - 1:02 AM

Mirza Teletovic scored 17 points with one assist and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Thunder on Monday.

He seems to have his minutes around 20 locked up right now. In his last five, Teletovic averaged 13.4 points, 1.8 boards, 0.4 blocks and 2.2 treys. If you need some treys to stash through the All-Star break, he's not a bad idea. If the Suns make some deals, it should help Mirza.
Feb 9 - 1:00 AM
Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len scored 13 points with eight rebounds, two assists, one block, two steals and no turnovers in 23 minutes against the Thunder on Monday.

As long as Len can get 22-25 minutes, he'll be able to post value worth owning in standard leagues. Keep him owned through the All-Star break with hopes more opportunity opens up for him.
