Goran Dragic said that he will keep an open mind in free agency, and that he would even consider a return to Houston.

"Every team in the NBA is an option to me, because it is a privilege to play for any team in the NBA," Dragic said. "When the time comes I’m going to sit down with my family and my agent and try to make the best decision for myself." It's no secret that Dragic has drawn plenty of interest from several teams, as he has really taken a step forward in his development in recent years. However, despite all the rumors it doesn't appear that Phoenix is willing to trade him at this point in the season and they will likely have to risk letting him walk in free agency without getting anything in return. As always, we will continue to monitor this situation closely.

Eric Bledsoe filled the stat sheet against the Rockets during a 113-111 loss on Friday, scoring 25 points with eight rebounds, nine assists, one block and one 3-pointer.

He's coming off a 33-point game from Wednesday and is on a non-Klay tear right now. In each of the three months this season, Bledsoe's points, assists and steals have gone up while his turnovers have gone down. The Suns didn't overpay him, apparently. He'll get a great matchup against the Clippers on Sunday.
Jan 24 - 1:20 AM

Isaiah Thomas scored 22 points against the Rockets on Friday with five rebounds, four assists and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

Goran Dragic was benched and the Pizza Guy ate all of his minutes. Thomas is also on a roll over his last three games with at least 22 points in each one, averaging 24.3 points, 3.0 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.7 steals and 3.7 treys on 56.3 percent from the field. He's a must-start player right now.
Jan 24 - 1:16 AM

Goran Dragic did not play down the stretch on Friday, finishing with two points and two assists in 18 minutes.

There's talk of coach Jeff Hornacek benching Dragic because of his technical foul and a new team rule that says a player will be benched after a tech. Dragic should be fine for his next game, but he will have his bad games due to the Suns' depth at guard.

Archie Goodwin's agent, Charles Briscoe, confirmed that Goodwin does not want to be traded from the Suns.

"Archie doesn’t want out of Phoenix," Briscoe said. "His words have been twisted in a recent article. We’re willing to wait for Archie’s opportunity. Any player in the NBA wants to play immediately, but we understand that Phoenix is in a playoff push. If we have to wait for next year, we’re OK with that. We know he will get his opportunity, and he’ll be ready." Goodwin has a long way to go before being a consistent part of the Suns' rotation, so unless he is traded to an ideal situation he can continue to be ignored in almost all fantasy leagues.

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 Suns have sent down Tyler Ennis for another stint in the NBA D-League.

He is a few injuries away from being relevant in most fantasy leagues, so owners can feel free to leave Ennis on the wire.

Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len played just 19 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with six points, three rebounds and zero blocks in a win over the Blazers.

Without LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) the Blazers played a small lineup, so Len simply wasn't needed tonight. He also got some rest for his sore foot, so you can expect him to bounce back in his next game.

P.J. Tucker - G/F - Suns

P.J. Tucker hit just 1-of-3 shots and scored three points on Wednesday, but added a season-high 13 rebounds, five assists, four steals and a block in 34 minutes.

This was just his second double-digit rebounding game of the season (Nov. 15) and he's scored a total of 10 points over his last three games. Continue to ignore him for now.
Jan 22 - 12:51 AM

Markieff Morris hit just 2-of-7 shots for six points and five rebounds in 29 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday.

That broke a streak of four double-digit scoring games for Markieff, who had 35 points against the Cavs a week ago. He'll bounce back, but gave way to the team's three point guards (Eric Bledsoe, Isaiah Thomas, Goran Dragic) tonight.
Jan 22 - 12:49 AM

Isaiah Thomas scored a season-high 27 points on 11-of-16 shooting and added three 3-pointers, three rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

He's scored 20 or more in three of his last five games and it's time to pick him up if he was dropped in your league. And while it wasn't a factor tonight, you can expect either Eric Bledsoe or Goran Dragic to take a hit if IT2 stays this hot going forward.
Jan 22 - 12:46 AM

Eric Bledsoe hit 11-of-22 shots, a 3-pointer and 10-of-15 free throws for a career-high 33 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and three steals in 34 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Blazers.

That's a season high in points for Bledsoe, who has increased his scoring in each of his last five games. Isaiah Thomas came off the bench for 27 points and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes, while starter Goran Dragic added 16 points, four assists and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes. Thomas is coming on again, so it wouldn't be surprising to suddenly see Dragic or Bledsoe start to struggle a bit, but that was not the case tonight.

Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len may have "a little tendinitis" in his foot, according to Suns coach Jeff Hornacek, but he's not expected to miss any games.

Len's ankles have both been surgically repaired and the Suns are wary of over-working him, but for now he's not on a minute-limit. "His foot is a little sore right now," Hornacek said. "It's his first year of playing real big minutes so we kind of have to build him up ... these next seven or eight games we're going to need some pretty big minutes out of Alex." Owners can start him as usual this week, and we'll update Len's status if his sore foot becomes a real issue.
Jan 21 - 7:28 PM

Goran Dragic scored 24 points on 11-of-15 shooting with nine rebounds, five assists and a steal in the Suns' 115-100 win over the Lakers on Monday.

Dragic and the other guards have steadily improved as the season has gone on, and he's returning top-50 value after a really shaky start. Eric Bledsoe added 17 points, five rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two threes in the win.
Jan 20 - 3:43 AM

Brandan Wright played 24 minutes off the bench on Monday, managing two points on 1-of-4 shooting with five rebounds and two blocks.

This is pretty big news for him as playing time has always been the problem and his fantasy game has been ultra-efficient. He didn't get the job done in the stat sheet tonight, and there could be key differences to how he is deployed in Phoenix vs. Dallas, but he's worth a look as a speculative add -- especially in 9-cat formats.
