Jevon Carter produced 20 points (7-10 FG, 6-8 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 26 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 119-112 win over the Heat.
Carter scored a season-high 20 points in Saturday's win. It was the first time Carter reached double figures since March 8th. The performance came out of nowhere. Carter knocked down six triples and shot a terrific 70 percent from the floor. He will look to build on this performance in Monday's game against the Thunder.
Jevon Carter totaled nine points (2-7 FG, 1-6 3PT, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, four assists, four steals, and one block in 27 minutes in the Suns’ 117-106 win over the Raptors on Tuesday.
Carter logged 27 minutes in the scrimmage finale win over the Raptors, ending with a full stat-line demonstrating what he can contribute to the team as the Suns prepare to compete in the eight "seeding" games. With Elie Okobo being out for two out of the three contests, and Cameron Payne getting back into the "swing" of the game, Carter logged the most minutes at the backup point guard position. Throughout the three scrimmages, he averaged 22.7 minutes of playing time, 8.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.3 steals, and 1.0 blocks while shooting 43.8 percent from the floor. As things stand now, it looks as if Carter is the front-runner for the primary backup role, at least until Okobo gets back into form. Even if this is the case, he is too inconsistent in his production to warrant consideration in any fantasy format. He is best left on waivers as he is a natural fade at this time.
Jevon Carter racked up 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt) to go along with four rebounds, two assists, and three steals across 27 minutes as the Suns were defeated by the Bucks 129-108 on Sunday.
Ricky Rubio was out for this one with an ankle issue so that explains why Carter logged 27 minutes, the most he's played since late October. He put up a nice stat line and has shown he can provide some fantasy value if he plays meaningful minutes; the problem is those minutes have been few and far between this season. Rubio shouldn't be out long so Carter's relevance will be short-lived.
Jevon Carter records 9 points (4-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal across 23 minutes in the Suns' 120-99 loss to the Clippers on Tuesday.
With Devin Booker nursing a forearm injury Carter was able to get added run. As long as Booker continues to be out Carter will be a popular value play in DFS formats but can be left on the waiver wire.
Jevon Carter went for seven points (3-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three rebounds and a steal over nine minutes in the Suns' 124-121 loss to the Pelicans on Thursday.
After a one-game absence proceeded by a start, Carter went back to the bench and barely saw the court in Thursday's loss. His playing time has been up-and-down this season, though he'll likely be confined to a deeper reserve role, barring injuries in the backcourt. The West Virginia product is a nice source of assists and steals when given the minutes, but an expanded role is unlikely to come to fruition.
