Player News - Suns

Date: Team: Pos:

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.
Feb 9 - 12:53 AM

Ronnie Price (toe) remains sidelined for the Suns.

Price was originally targeting a return this week, but it seems like the earliest we'll see him again is in late February. He's not a fantasy option in any league, regardless of size or format.
Feb 8 - 1:24 PM

Suns sign G Jordan McRae to a second 10-day contract.

There is no reason for the Suns to ditch McRae, and Phoenix will now get a longer look at the 6'6" guard.
Feb 8 - 12:23 PM

Archie Goodwin scored 14 points with six boards, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer in Saturday's loss to the Jazz.

He unfortunately had more turnovers (4) than assists for the third time in his last five games, but to be fair Goodwin is still learning how to be a point guard. Brandon Knight (groin) will be sidelined through the All-Star break and possibly more, so Goodwin is still worth holding onto if you don't mind the heavy turnovers. It also helps that Knight is a potential shut-down candidate with the Suns playing for ping pong balls.
Feb 7 - 1:39 AM

Devin Booker scored 18 points on 6-of-14 shooting on Saturday vs. the Jazz.

The rookie added three boards, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes, and he only turned the ball over once. The 19-year-old is a special talent and is averaging 20.4 points, 3.6 boards, 2.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 3.0 triples over his last five games, returning top-75 value in that span. His development will likely be the Suns' top priority moving forward.
Feb 7 - 1:34 AM
P.J. Tucker - G/F - Suns

P.J. Tucker failed to score in 38 minutes vs. the Jazz on Saturday, missing all three of his shots from the field.

Tucker recently said that he is hopeful that the Suns will not trade him at the deadline, so he certainly didn't boost his stock with this performance. The swingman added just four assists and one board to his name with a couple of turnovers, but he does have enough upside to warrant a hold in standard leagues for any owner in need of 3-pointers, boards and steals.
Feb 7 - 1:28 AM
Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len played just 15 minutes on Saturday vs. the Jazz, scoring five points with three boards, two assists and one block.

The low minutes was a major buzzkill after the center went off on Thursday vs. the Rockets with 12 points, 18 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 27 minutes. The Suns are tanking and are clearly rebuilding for the future, so hopefully coach Earl Watson stops delaying the process and reduces Tyson Chandler's role. Len is an excellent stash for after the All-Star break, so hold him if you can. Chandler finished with 10 points, 14 boards and one block in 25 minutes.
Feb 7 - 1:17 AM

Orlando Johnson played 19 minutes in his Phoenix debut on Saturday vs. the Jazz, scoring seven points with one board, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He was 2-of-5 from the field and coach Earl Watson said earlier that he likes his athleticism and heart. Johnson is on a 10-day deal and is hoping to get signed for the rest of the season, but he's not on the fantasy radar outside of the deepest of leagues until that happens.
Feb 7 - 1:14 AM

Markieff Morris scored 17 points with seven boards, eight assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

His stat line was fantastic, but the only negative is that he shot just 6-of-22 from the field because the Suns weren't generating any easy looks. The Suns have been using Morris as the focal point of their offense, but to be clear they are more than likely just showcasing him for a trade. Regardless, he needs to be owned in all leagues right now with averages of 16.0 points, 6.4 boards, 4.4 assists, 1.2 blocks, 1.6 steals and 0.8 3-pointers over his last five games.
Feb 7 - 1:08 AM

Suns coach Earl Watson spoke highly of newly-acquired guard Orlando Johnson.

"He plays with his heart like [P.J. Tucker]," Watson said. "He’s athletic. He’s shooting the ball well from 3 right now. But what we need more than anything right now is like-minded players. He has a like-minded attitude coming from the Spurs program. You know the attitude he’s going to have. He’s going to play the right way." Johnson is on a 10-day deal and will look to impress the Suns during Saturday's game vs. the Jazz. He's not on the fantasy radar for now.
