Notes 
 SGA appeared in just 35 games and finished last season in March due to a plantar fascia tear. With OKC's season already in the toilet and the team in full-tank mode, it wasn't surprising to see him held out in a precautionary move. The young guard took another leap forward in his third season, averaging career highs in points (23.7), assists (5.9) and threes (2.0) to go with 4.7 boards while shooting high percentages from the field and the charity stripe. He agreed to a five-year max extension in the offseason and is on track to be ready for the start of the season. His status is one to monitor, but he's still locked in as an early-round selection in fantasy drafts.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Every year we doubt CP3, and every year he delivers. Last season, Paul led the Suns to the NBA Finals behind a staggeringly strong regular season in which he averaged 16.4 points and posted a 4-1 assist-to-turnover margin. He's an elite shooter, defender, facilitator, and rebounder who doesn't hurt you in any category except blocks. There's no reason to expect a precipitous drop-off this season.
