DeAndre Ayton totaled six points (3-9 FG), seventeen rebounds, five assists, and three blocks in the Suns’ 109-103 loss to the Bucks on Wednesday.
Ayton will look to put it together again after the Suns’ Game Four loss to the Bucks, as he was again unable to put together the double-double performance we have become accustomed to this post-season. Yes, he has been able to consistently play to the lower end of his ceiling, creating a nice security blanket for fantasy production; however, it leaves a lot to be desired. When Ayton is playing at his best, scoring and crashing the board matched with the additional urgency that separates good players from great players, it could be argued that the Suns are able to play at another level. The volatility in his production, albeit productive, could be just enough to spark some concern over how he is positioned in your roster. Do your best to hedge against the residual effects of his seemingly good vs. great "identity crisis."
