Devin Booker    G  Suns

 

 

Devin Booker (ribs), Marquese Chriss (ankle) and Alex Len (ankle) are questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Mavericks. X-rays taken on Booker's ribs came back negative, so he's simply sore, but it wouldn't be all that shocking to see him spend another game on the sidelines tomorrow. If all these guys are out, Isaiah Canaan and Dragan Bender will get another chance to start, with Greg Monroe, T.J. Warren and Josh Jackson being asked to step it up on offense. Check back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.

Alex Len    C  Suns

 

 

Alex Len (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Dallas. Len returned from a three-game absence on Monday and finished with 12 points and eight rebounds in 25 minutes. Tyson Chandler (rest) and Greg Monroe will be available for Wednesday's game, so we will have to wait and see which two centers are active.

Devin Booker    SG  Suns

 

 

Booker (ribs) is hopeful to play Wednesday against the Mavericks. With X-rays on Booker's ribs returning negative Monday, it appears the 21-year-old was able to steer clear of a significant setback after sustaining the injury late in Sunday's loss to the Rockets. The rib contusion still prevented Booker from playing in Monday's loss to the Grizzlies, which resulted in Isaiah Canaan starting at point guard and backup Tyler Ulis logging most of the minutes at the position. If Booker makes it through morning shootaround Wednesday no worse for the wear, expect him to take back his spot as the Suns' starting point guard, sending Canaan back to the bench.

Davon Reed    SG  Suns

 

 

Reed had one assist in eight minutes during Monday's 120-109 loss to the Grizzlies. Reed, who had knee surgery back in August, made his second career appearance and recorded his first dime. He hasn't scored a point yet in 13 minutes, but through seven G League games Reed is averaging 10.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.3 threes, 1.0 block, and 0.6 steals in 25.7 minutes. Reed's ability to shoot the three and defend along the wing will likely help him earn a chance to shine with the Suns at some point. For now though, the 22-year-old rookie remains a young player with potential who's worth keeping an eye on for the future.

Tyler Ulis    PG  Suns

 

 

Ulis recorded 13 points (6-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt), seven assists, five steals, and one rebound in 31 minutes during Monday's 120-109 loss to the Grizzlies. Ulis had combined to play just 15 minutes over the last two games, both of which he came off the bench. Therefore, this was an especially encouraging performance, as Ulis had appeared to completely drop off the fantasy radar. He's still not a good option in most leagues, and that will be especially true once Devin Booker (ribs), who missed Monday's matchup, returns to the lineup. Nevertheless, it at least bodes well for Ulis that he was able to outplay temporary starter Isaiah Canaan so thoroughly on Monday. Furthermore, Ulis also managed a career high in steals.

Troy Daniels    SG  Suns

 

 

Daniels had nine points (2-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), one rebound, one assist, and one block in 23 minutes during Monday's 120-109 loss to the Grizzlies. Daniels was listed as questionable after injuring his back the day before, but he felt good enough to give it a go. As evidenced by Monday's stat line, Daniels isn't a well-rounded contributor. Nevertheless, he is among the few Suns who excels from beyond the arc, and he is averaging his most minutes per game here in January. Devin Booker (rib) probably won't be sidelined much longer, but Daniels could see a small boost if Booker remains out for Wednesday's matchup with the Mavericks.

Alex Len    C  Suns

 

 

Len collected 12 points (3-4 FG, 6-9 FT), eight rebounds, and one steal in 25 minutes during Monday's 120-109 loss to the Grizzlies. Len returned to the lineup following a three-game absence with a sore ankle, finishing as the only Sun with a positive Plus-Minus (Plus-5) in the loss. Veteran center Greg Monroe drew the start, but Len saw two more minutes than him. With the Suns so far removed from the playoff picture, it'd make sense for them to funnel more minutes to Len as the season continues. However, Len has been a model of inconsistency for years, so it might not be wise to trust him outside of deeper leagues.

Isaiah Canaan    PG  Suns

 

 

Canaan posted four points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, and three assists in 17 minutes during Monday's 120-109 loss to the Grizzlies. Canaan filled in as the starter at point guard for the injured Devin Booker (rib), though the previous full-time starter (Tyler Ulis) was much more effective, tallying 13 points, seven dimes, five steals, and one board in 31 minutes off the bench. Every once in a while Canaan is still capable of going off, but he's far too inconsistent to be relied on in most leagues.

Greg Monroe    C  Suns

 

 

Monroe supplied 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-5 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 23 minutes during Monday's 120-109 loss to the Grizzlies. Monroe drew the start in place of Tyson Chandler (undisclosed), though backup big man Alex Len earned 25 minutes off the pine. Monroe has appeared in five straight games, this after appearing in just two of the previous 12 games (dating back to late December). Monroe has been solid when he's been part of the rotation, even in limited minutes, but fantasy owners should always be sure that he's slated to suit up before counting on him.

Josh Jackson    SF  Suns

 

 

Jackson scored 20 points (6-16 FG, 2-5 3PT, 6-8 FT) to go with eight rebounds and an assist Monday against the Grizzlies. Jackson bounced back from a disastrous performance Sunday against Houston, hitting the 20-point plateau for the second time in his last four games. The rookie has played at least 22 minutes in each of those four contests, and he's averaging more than 14 field goal attempts per game over that span.
