Suns News

Dragan Bender    F  Suns

 

 

Dragan Bender moved back into the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Grizzlies, but finished scoreless in 20 minutes. He was 0-of-2 from the field and looked like a player with zero confidence -- he was passing up open shots and wasn't aggressive at all. He added two rebounds, one assist and one steal with Marquese Chriss (ankle) on the shelf, and he was outplayed by Jared Dudley. Bender has been terrible for weeks and has a combined 21 points in his last eight games. Leave him on the wire.

Devin Booker    G  Suns

 

 

X-rays taken on Devin Booker's ribs came back negative. This is very good news and Booker is reportedly "hopeful" to play on Wednesday vs. Dallas. Expect another update on Tuesday, but it sounds like his injury is pretty minor. His fantasy owners can breathe easy now.

Devin Booker    SG  Suns

 

 

X-rays came back negative on Booker's ribs, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports. Booker's rib injury was reported to be a bruised rib, and the negative X-ray confirms that. More information should come out closer to Wednesday's game, however at this time Booker should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks.

Dragan Bender    PF  Suns

 

 

Bender will get the start Monday against the Grizzlies with Marquese Chriss out, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports. Bender's jump to the starting lineup comes as Marquese Chriss is dealing with an ankle injury. In January, Bender's seen his playing time increase to 26.3 minutes per game, however he's scored double-digit points just twice in those 12 games.

Greg Monroe    C  Suns

 

 

Monroe will start at center for Monday's game against the Grizzlies, Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic reports. The Suns are set to be without Tyson Chandler (undisclosed) on Monday, so Monroe will get the call with the top unit once again. Alex Len (ankle) has been cleared to play, but Marqueese Chriss (ankle) joins Chandler on the sidelines, so there should be plenty of minutes available for Monroe in the frontcourt. With a hefty workload in store, go ahead and get Monroe active for Monday's contest.

Isaiah Canaan    PG  Suns

 

 

Canaan will pick up the start at point guard for Monday's game against the Grizzlies, Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic reports. The Suns are set to be without Devin Booker (rib) on Monday, so Canaan will get the call with the first unit. He should see a fairly sizable boost in playing time with the promotion, which makes him an intriguing cheap option for Monday's DFS slate. Canaan, who will be making his first start of the season, will likely share the extra workload with fellow point guard Tyler Ulis.

Isaiah Canaan    G  Suns

 

 

Isaiah Canaan, Troy Daniels, T.J. Warren, Dragan Bender and Greg Monroe will start on Monday vs. the Grizzlies. The Suns are shorthanded tonight with Devin Booker (ribs) and Marquese Chriss (ankle) out. Tyson Chandler is also getting the night off. Canaan has outplayed Tyler Ulis since he arrived in Phoenix and is the best bet to help fantasy owners in Phoenix's backcourt.

Troy Daniels    G  Suns

 

 

Troy Daniels (back) and Alex Len (ankle) will play vs. the Grizzlies on Monday. Daniels has made two starts in a row, but hasn't done much with 14 total points. However, Devin Booker (ribs) is out tonight, so there are a lot more shots up for grabs. If you need 3-pointers, Daniels could be your guy.

Alex Len    C  Suns

 

 

Alex Len (ankle) will play on Monday vs. the Grizzlies. Len is back after a three-game absence. The Suns may monitor his minutes tonight even with Tyson Chandler resting. Greg Monroe is probably the better bet to help fantasy owners tonight, especially since Len may not be 100 percent.

Marquese Chriss    F  Suns

 

 

Marquese Chriss (ankle) is doubtful to suit up for Monday's game in Memphis. It sounds like Chriss will be watching this one from the sidelines, which should result in Dragan Bender moving back into the starting five, and he could see an uptick in usage with Devin Booker (ribs) unavailable. Bender is someone to think about streaming in deep leagues, whereas Chriss is a cut-candidate just about everywhere.
