Aron Baynes, who has yet to play during the NBA restart, is listed as questionable on Tuesday against the Philadelphia 76ers. Baynes has been dealing with a bone bruise on his knee.
Even if Baynes is able to play in Tuesday's game, he is not worth playing in any fantasy league. The Suns will be happy to have Baynes back, but he is unlikely to have much fantasy value for the remainder of the season.
Aron Baynes has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Miami Heat with a knee bone bruise.
Baynes has yet to play in Orlando as he was late to arrive following a battle with COVID-19 in July. He missed the previous four games due to conditioning issues but he appears to have suffered a bone bruise while practicing. It's unknown how much longer Baynes will be out but he can be considered day-to-day for now. The Suns have been playing well with a perfect 4-0 record since the NBA restart. Frank Kaminsky and Cheick Diallo will continue to backup Deandre Ayton.
Suns C Aron Baynes has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Indiana pacers due to lack of conditioning.
Baynes is continuing to work himself back into game shape after arriving late to the bubble due to contracting COVID-19 back in July. The Suns have won each of their first three seeding games and have set themselves up to make a real run at the eighth playoff spot in the Western Conference, so getting Baynes back will just be icing on the cake. The Suns big-man began the season on fire, filling in for the then-suspended Deandre Ayton before coming back down to earth. His next chance to return comes on Saturday against the Heat.
Suns C Aron Baynes has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Clippers due to lack of conditioning.
Although the Suns big-man has begun practicing with the team, it appears that he's not ready for game action quite yet. Baynes was a late arrival to the Orlando bubble after testing positive for COVID-19 back in July. His next chance to return will come Thursday against the Pacers.
Suns C Aron Baynes participated in his first practice on Thursday and has cleared COVID protocol.
While this is excellent news for the Suns as they fight for the 8th seed in the Western Conference, Suns head coach Monty Williams said of Baynes, "I think he's going to need a bit more cardio and some reps before he can get out there and play." Baynes shared that his bout with coronavirus came at the cost of not touching a basketball for 30 days and sleeping in excess due to his lack of energy. Given he just arrived in Orlando and was able to practice, he is trending in the right direction, but he will likely need additional time to get to the playing time worthy for consideration in DFS. Deandre Ayton will still shoulder the load from the center position and will be a solid play against the Wizards tomorrow.
