Greg Monroe News

Greg Monroe    F/C  Suns

 

 

Monroe posted 17 points (7-11 FG, 3-6 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 30 minutes in Wednesday's 115-109 loss to the Raptors. The veteran big man drew the start in place of Tyson Chandler (personal) and produced his second double-double in his last four games. Monroe has three double-digit rebound outings overall during that span and has produced more often than not when called upon since arriving in Phoenix. His playing time has also encouragingly been steady since late November, as Monroe has seen at least 20 minutes in each of his last six contests.

Greg Monroe scored 17 points with 11 rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 30 minutes during his start against the Raptors on Wednesday. Tyson Chandler (personal) did not play tonight. The Suns are probably rooting for Monroe to play lights out because they want to trade him for anything. If the DNP pattern is any indication, Monroe is likely going to come off the bench against the Wolves on Saturday. He's really tough to own in a shallower league because he doesn't have much long-term upside.

Monroe will start at center in place of Tyson Chandler on Wednesday against the Raptors, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports. With Tyson Chandler out for personal reasons, Greg Monroe will be slotted into the starting lineup for Wednesday's contest. Monroe has started the last three games he's played in, averaging 11.3 points and 9.3 rebounds over 25.0 minutes per game.

Greg Monroe is starting for Tyson Chandler on Wednesday against the Raptors. This is pretty much the pattern these days, so Monroe should get minutes in the 20s with Alex Len behind him.

Greg Monroe was the odd man out on Tuesday, failing to get into a loss to the Kings due to a coaching decision. Tyson Chandler started and Alex Len backed him up off the bench, while Monroe watched from the bench. This should mean Monroe plays in the next one, and it could be Chandler's turn for a night off. Dealing with the three Phoenix centers is not fun.

Greg Monroe scored eight points with 11 rebounds, one assist and no turnovers in 22 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday. He was the backup tonight, but if the trends tell us anything it feels like he'll be resting on Tuesday against the Kings. Although, maybe Alex Len (knee) may still be limited. Regardless, many fantasy owners want to just sit out and watch others get sick on the center carousel.

Monroe will come off the bench for Saturday's game against the Spurs, Craig Grialou of the Arizona Republic reports. Monroe has started the last two games in place of Tyson Chandler (personal), a stretch where he averaged a respectable 13.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.0 steals across 26.5 minutes. However, Chandler has been cleared to play and will rejoin the top unit, which sends Monroe back to the bench. With fellow reserve center Alex Len dealing with a knee injury, look for Monroe to take on the bulk of the backup minutes behind Chandler. That said, the uncertainty surrounding Monroe's exact role likely makes him someone to avoid Saturday for fantasy purposes.

Monroe collected 15 points (6-7 FG, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Thursday's 109-99 loss to Washington. Monroe received an unexpected start Thursday, as Tyson Chandler (personal) was given the night off. The center rotation has been a bit of a mess over the past two weeks, however, Monroe has shown glimpses of what he can bring to a fantasy squad. There is still a lot of uncertainty moving forward, but he is worth stashing if you have some room on your bench.

Greg Monroe started at center on Thursday for Tyson Chandler (personal) and had 15 points, seven rebounds, five assists and a steal on 6-of-7 shooting in 27 minutes. We still don't know why Chandler was a late scratch, while Alex Len added seven points, eight rebounds and three blocks off the bench. If Chandler's absence is trade-related, both Monroe and Len are going to be worth grabbing, but if all three are sticking around, it's going to be a different center with a big line every night for the Suns.

Monroe will get the start at center for Thursday's game against the Wizards, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports. It was reported earlier in the day that Monroe would come off the bench Thursday. However, Tyson Chandler has since been ruled out for personal reasons, so Monroe will get the starting nod. The big man should see a relatively healthy workload as a result.

@1057FMTheFan @Bucks @PicknSaveStores Should have traded Henson or Thon instead Greg Monroe no kind of inside presence......

@_adibody They’re projecting future upside, not right now. Greg Monroe is 3rd on the Suns in PPG. Mike James is 4th… https://t.co/YjAiN3L4ot
