Dragan Bender    F  Suns

 

 

Dragan Bender scored four points with five rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 21 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday. He's getting some center minutes and that could continue with Alex Len (ankle) hurt and Greg Monroe bought out. Bender really flopped while Marquese Chriss was out, so it'll take a lot for the fantasy community to trust him again. If you want to add him, make sure your expectations are low.

Marquese Chriss    F  Suns

 

 

Marquese Chriss turned in a great game on Wednesday, scoring 15 points with 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes. He brought the energy on both ends in what was easily his best game since he hurt his hip back on Jan. 7. He missed six games for that ailment, and then missed one game for an ankle tweak on Jan. 29. Chriss was a disaster in the two games in between injuries with just five points combined. He's one of the most inconsistent players in the NBA, but he was really starting to heat up before the hip issue. Go ahead and add him.

Isaiah Canaan    PG  Suns

 

 

Canaan has been diagnosed with a fractured left ankle, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports. Canaan had to be stretchered off the court Wednesday after landing awkwardly on his left leg, and as originally expected, further tests confirmed he's dealing with a fractured ankle. He'll likely be forced to miss the remainder of the season as a result, though the Suns have yet to provide any sort of update regarding a potential timetable for the 26-year-old. This is a tough break for Canaan, who earned himself a guaranteed contract with the Suns after originally joining the team under the NBA's injury hardship exception earlier in the year. Tyler Ulis should see an uptick in minutes with Canaan sidelined.

Isaiah Canaan    PG  Suns

 

 

Canaan had to be stretchered off the court with a left leg injury, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News reports. Canaan landed awkwardly on his left foot and appeared to suffer a broken ankle, though there still hasn't been any confirmation regarding the severity of the injury at this point and we'll likely need to wait until he undergoes further testing following Wednesday's game for a final diagnosis. Expect another update following the contest, but the injury looked very serious, and given the fact he had to be stretchered off the floor, he'll likely be sidelined for an extended period.

Isaiah Canaan    G  Suns

 

 

Isaiah Canaan suffered a horrible leg injury against the Mavs on Wednesday. It looked really bad as Canaan's foot went in the wrong direction. This was a lot like Gordon Hayward's injury and we're all rooting for Canaan to be able to bounce back from this one. Tyler Ulis will pick up some extra minutes.

Josh Jackson    SF  Suns

 

 

Jackson will start Wednesday against the Mavericks. Jackson will re-join the starting lineup after spending the last six games in a reserve role, averaging 13.7 points and 4.0 rebounds across 21.8 minutes per game during that stretch. He'll replace Troy Daniels in the starting five.

Troy Daniels    SG  Suns

 

 

Daniels will come off the bench Wednesday against the Mavericks. Daniels will return to a reserve role after failing to impress in a trio of starts (7.7 points, 1.0 rebound across 20.7 minutes per game). Josh Jackson, who is averaging 13.2 points and 4.6 rebounds across 23.4 minutes off the bench in his last five games, will re-join the starting lineup in his place.

Dragan Bender    PF  Suns

 

 

Bender will return to a reserve role for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks. Bender will head back to the bench with Marquese Chriss (ankle) returning from a one-game absence. With Alex Len (ankle) and Greg Monroe (buyout) both unavailable for Wednesday's tilt, Bender should still see a fair share of minutes off the bench. He's averaging 5.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 22.4 minutes per game this season.

Isaiah Canaan    PG  Suns

 

 

Canaan, with Devin Booker (ribs) re-entering the starting lineup, will return to a reserve role for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks. Canaan should return to his regular workload off the bench Wednesday. He's averaging 9.4 points, 4.2 assists and 2.4 rebounds across 22.9 minutes per game this season.

Josh Jackson    F  Suns

 

 

Devin Booker, Josh Jackson, T.J. Warren, Marquese Chris and Tyson Chandler will start against the Mavs. Jackson has really done well on the wing and the Suns want some defense, so that explains this move. He's trending up and is worth a speculative add in deeper competitive leagues. He'll have ups and downs.
