Cameron Payne scored 19 points (7-10 FG, 5-7 3PT) with two rebounds, seven assists, and one steal in Saturday's win over the Grizzlies.
Payne played 25 minutes as the Suns pulled their starters with a comfortable lead and Payne was able to take advantage of the extra minutes. Payne averages 7.3 points, 1.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 17.8 minutes per game over 18 games played, and would only become a fantasy option if something happened to Chris Paul.
Suns point-guard Cameron Payne (foot) is considered questionable ahead of Saturday's clash with Philadelphia.
The news comes from head coach Monty Williams that Payne is on a wait-and-see basis for Saturday. It may not be news of the highest priority given how much the young guard has struggled this campaign. His silver lining this season has been his assist totals, which usually hover around 4 per game. Still, with Chris Paul rounding into form, it's hard to find value in Payne's output at present.
Cameron Payne (foot) won't play Friday night against the Detroit Pistons.
Payne has already missed the last five games, so the backup point guard role for the Suns will continue to be split primarily between Langston Galloway and Jevon Carter, though neither are viable fantasy options.
Suns PG Cameron Payne (right foot sprain) has been ruled out ahead of Wednesday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.
Payne continues to miss time due to a right foot sprain, allowing Chris Paul to continue absorbing the majority of the workload as the team's starting point guard. Jevon Carter and Langston Galloway are likely to see increased minutes with Payne ruled out but neither reserve player is worthy of inserting into any fantasy starting lineups on Wednesday, as the Pelicans are one of the better defensive teams in the league.
Suns PG Cameron Payne (foot) has been ruled out ahead of Monday's contest against the Dallas Mavericks with a sore right foot.
Payne has been battling through a sore foot and will continue to miss time Monday against the Mavericks. With Payne ruled out and Devin Booker questionable with a hamstring injury, Chris Paul could see extended usage and be a great play in DFS leagues on Monday night in Dallas. Paul is averaging 24.7 points across the last week and should continue his great play against a Mavericks team that has dropped five consecutive games, including their most recent loss to the Suns on Saturday.
