Dragan Bender scored 14 points, shooting 5-of-12 from the field including eight rebounds, two assists, three three-pointers, and two blocks during the Suns' Friday night loss to the Rockets.

Fantasy Impact:

Bender played 32 minutes while filling in for the injured Marquese Chriss. If you played Bender as a streamer or DFS play you have to be pretty pleased with his production. This marks two consecutive solid outings for Bender and he is starting to display his shooting and shot blocking ability. Bender's role will surely take a hit when Chriss returns but he has definitely earned more playing time going forward. The 20-year-old forward is not a must-own player at the moment but he is someone to monitor as the season progresses.
