Marquese Chriss    PF  Suns

 

 

Chriss scored 15 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while adding 12 rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 102-88 win over the Mavericks. He missed seven games in January due to hip and ankle issues, but Chriss looked 100 percent in recording his second double-double of the season. The Suns have started shedding veteran contracts, buying out Greg Monroe before tipoff Wednesday, and if Tyson Chandler follows him out the door Chriss could see a big jump in minutes to close out the schedule.

T.J. Warren    SF  Suns

 

 

Warren scored 20 points (10-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT) while adding four rebounds, four assists and a steal in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 102-88 win over the Mavericks. He's now hit for at least 20 points in four straight games and eight of his last nine, averaging 21.1 points, 4.0 boards, 1.3 assists and 1.0 steals over that stretch. The rebuilding Suns are still very much a work in progress, but Warren is at least emerging as a solid secondary scoring option alongside Devin Booker.

Josh Jackson    SF  Suns

 

 

Jackson scored 21 points (9-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 102-88 win over the Mavericks. The rookie tied his career high in scoring, just set on Jan. 14, and Jackson's production has taken a big jump in January -- he's averaging 14.5 points, 4.8 boards, 1.5 assists and 1.3 three-pointers in 12 games on the month, earning a spot in the starting five again in the process. The 20-year-old will likely continue to have his ups and downs, but he forms a very intriguing backcourt with Devin Booker given both players' length, athleticism and talent.

Greg Monroe    C  Suns

 

 

There is "strong, early mutual interest" between the Pelicans and Greg Monroe according to Chris Mannix of Yahoo Sports. This makes a lot of sense for both sides. Monroe is a New Orleans native and could see significant minutes as a DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) replacement. Assuming he clears waivers, the Pelicans will be one of many teams knocking on his door. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski said the Celtics are also a potential destination and can use part of their $8.4 million disabled player exception from the Gordon Hayward (leg) injury. In terms of fantasy, a move to New Orleans would be better for his fantasy value.

Devin Booker    G  Suns

 

 

Devin Booker scored 15 points with two rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers during a 102-88 win over the Mavs as the starting point guard on Wednesday. He did look to have some protection on his rib and he did look limited at times. Booker did also make all three from the line tonight, which gives 56 made freebies in a row to put him just three back of the franchise record. With Isaiah Canaan out for the year, Booker is now likely looking at major run at point guard. Once he gets over this rib injury, he could start to heat up again.

T.J. Warren    F  Suns

 

 

T.J. Warren scored 20 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one turnover in 37 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday. Tony Buckets continues to live up to his nickname with four straight 20-plus scoring games and hitting that mark in eight of his last nine games. Warren's steals have also seen a nice upward trend recently and he ends his January with a tidy 56.8 percent from the field, adding averages of 21.3 points, 4.2 boards, 1.7 dimes, 1.2 steals, 0.7 blocks and 0.5 treys. Keep him going and he could be even better going forward.

Tyson Chandler    C  Suns

 

 

Tyson Chandler scored six points with eight rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 27 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday. He's the last center left standing with Alex Len (ankle) dealing with his oft-injured ankles, and Greg Monroe being bought out. Chandler is still likely going to get some DNPs for rest, so he'll be annoying to own in fantasy. There probably is someone better on your wire.

Josh Jackson    F  Suns

 

 

Josh Jackson matched his career-high 21 points with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Mavs as a starter at shooting guard on Wednesday. The lineup move was a big success and coach Jay Triano really seems to be coming around on Jackson. Earlier this week, he said he liked how he produced offense in the open floor and he likes how he attacks the basket. Of course, the key to Jackson's minutes will be his defense, and he had that in spades today with great isolation and PNR defense. He's playing well enough to add in most standard leagues, but just know he'll probably have some bad games mixed in going forward.

Tyler Ulis    G  Suns

 

 

Tyler Ulis did not score with two assists and one steal in 11 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday. He is probably going to be in the rotation now with Isaiah Canaan (ankle) out for the season. Still, Ulis is not playing well at all and the Suns are probably going to play Devin Booker at PG a ton. Leave him on the wire unless you're desperate.
