Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len scored 10 points on 5-of-9 shooting with a career-best 11 rebounds and career-best five blocks against the Kings on Friday.

Len logged just 23 minutes but this output comes off some real momentum and he's a must-own player in standard leagues. We can't guarantee that there aren't hiccups, but the upside is right and he looks like he has taken a proverbial step forward.

Marcus Morris hit six 3-pointers off the bench on Friday against the Kings, finishing with 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting with nine rebounds, five assists and one steal in 28 minutes.

We're not entirely sure he and Markieff (17 points, two rebounds, three steals, one three) don't sometimes switch jerseys but all kidding aside it's a great night for the other Morris twin. He'll have a hard time having more than borderline value in 12-team standard leagues, but if he can build off this we'll let you know.

Isaiah Thomas enjoyed a solid revenge game in Friday's win over the reeling Kings, scoring 17 points on 7-of-17 shooting with two threes, three boards, five assists and a steal in 29 minutes.

Thomas took over in the fourth quarter like he did so many times playing for the Kings, repeatedly taunting the vicinity of where Kings' decision-makers would normally sit but weren't there for this particular game. They say revenge is a dish best served cold, but in this case it came in 30 minutes or less and steaming hot.

Suns GM Ryan MCDonough explained during a recent interview that the Suns' objective in trading Anthony Tolliver was to give the team more flexibility on the trade market.

"The thought process is to try to put ourselves in the mix to add a big player via trade," Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough said. "We want to be aggressive and active. We want to solidify ourselves as a playoff team. The flexibility would allow us more wiggle room to make a trade."

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.

The Suns have sent down Tyler Ennis for a D-League stint.

Ennis is not part of the rotation in Phoenix, and he can remain on the wire in all leagues.

The Suns sent G Archie Goodwin, G Tyler Ennis and F T.J. Warren to the D-League.

They're expected to play three games for Bakersfield and then re-join the team on Dec. 31 for a game at OKC.

The Phoenix Suns received Tony Mitchell in a trade with the Pistons on Wednesday in exchange for Anthony Tolliver.

There is a good chance that Mitchell gets waived, and the Pistons unloaded him in order to add another stretch four to their roster. To be clear, neither player should be owned in most leagues.

Gerald Green dropped 22 points in 23 minutes on Tuesday vs. Dallas, adding one assist, one board, one steal and six 3-pointers.

He continues to be one of the streakiest shooters in the league, but when he is feeling it he can put on quite a show. Green shot 7-of-13 from the field and a ridiculous 6-of-9 from 3-point range as the Suns opted to use a smaller lineup down the stretch. Green has been able to hold his value pretty well with limited minutes, but if owners are patient they will be rewarded with big games like these occasionally.

Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len scored 17 points with seven boards in a win over the Mavericks on Tuesday, adding one steal and one block before fouling out in 28 minutes.

He has really shown a lot of improvement this season and is starting to make some noise in fantasy leagues. He was able to shoot a very efficient 6-of-9 from the field and has shown an excellent ability to alter shots at the rim. Len has now fouled out of three games this season, but if he can keep producing numbers like these he will be worth a look in all leagues.
Dec 24 - 12:36 AM

Markieff Morris scored just nine points on Tuesday vs. Dallas, adding four boards, four assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

Apart from the four steals, this line was rather disappointing as the Suns decided to go small for most of the game. Morris should be much better against the Kings on Friday, and his owners can expect him to have occasional bumps in the road like this one. That being said, he still belongs in all lineups.
Dec 24 - 12:28 AM

Goran Dragic dropped 25 points in Tuesday's win over the Mavericks, adding four assists, three boards, one steal and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He recently said that his back was still a bit tight, but it didn't appear that way on Tuesday. Dragic was all over the place and it didn't look like he was limited at all. Regardless, owners should still check back for updates because he may be pretty sore after logging 39 minutes. For now, keep him active in all lineups.
Dec 24 - 12:23 AM

Eric Bledsoe notched his second triple-double of the season in a win over Dallas on Tuesday, finishing with 16 points, 11 assists, 10 boards, three steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

He did shoot just 6-of-19 from the field and turned the ball over three times, but his owners have to be thrilled with this line. Bledsoe's rebounding has really improved over his last three games, and he has been able to snag 29 boards over that span. He will look to continue his torrid pace against the Kings on Friday.
Dec 24 - 12:14 AM

Isaiah Thomas admitted his current role with the Suns is different than he had envisioned.

In a Q&A with NBA.com's David Aldridge, Thomas admitted (among other things) he thought he'd see more playing time alongside Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe. It sounds like Thomas is still finding his way in Phoenix, but with Dragic entering free agency after the season, it may just be a temporary issue.

Goran Dragic's back is still not 100 percent healthy.

"Sometimes, I feel a little bit tight, but that's normal," Dragic said. Jeff Hornacek added, "Goran is probably hurt still, but he's not going to tell us because he wants to play." A lingering back issue is a reason for fantasy owners to have concern, but it doesn't sound serious at this point.
