Fantasy Impact: Ayton’s return for the Suns means Bismack Biyombo will return to a reserve role for fantasy owners, minimizing his value to fantasy owners against Utah Monday night.

Devin Booker tallied 29 points (9-18 FG, 2-4 3PT, 9-9 FT), five assists, three rebounds and one block in 32 minutes of Saturday's 125-105 win over the 76ers.

Fantasy Impact: Booker continued his elite scoring production on Saturday, as he is now averaging a whopping 33.8 points per game in March. It seems as though Kevin Durant is targeting a return sometime next week, which will obviously knock down Booker's upside. However, the shooting guard should see plenty of scoring opportunities regardless of who he shares the court with.

Kevin Durant is potentially returning Wednesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves barring any setback.

Fantasy Impact: Durant has been out since slipping during pregame warmups against the Oklahoma City Thunder causing him to miss the Suns’ last seven games. Getting Durant in the regular season to get back into game shape before the playoffs start is huge for the Suns’ title chances.

Chris Paul recorded 14 points (5-15 FG, 2-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), 13 assists, six rebounds, three steals and one block in 33 minutes of Sunday's 124-20 loss to the Thunder.

Fantasy Impact: Paul struggled from the field on Sunday but he was able to stuff the stat sheet on his way to a double-double. Despite taking double-digit shots in five straight games, the veteran's scoring numbers haven't increased significantly and they likely won't for the remainder of the season.

Landry Shamet (foot) is available to play in Sunday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. (Source: Phoenix Suns on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Shamet has been out for multiple months while trying to manage lingering foot soreness, and he's finally well enough to make his return to the court. He will play on Sunday, but he likely won't have much fantasy value until the team ramps him up in the coming weeks.

Fantasy Impact: Ross has missed the team's last two games while recovering from a toe injury, and the team has upgraded him to active for Sunday's game. This should come as no surprise, as they had him listed as probable to play coming into the day. He should get a lot of work and be a solid streaming option against the Mavericks on Sunday.

Josh Okogie tallied 25 points (7-15 FG, 5-10 3PT, 6-6 FT) and four rebounds in 32 minutes of Friday's 125-104 win over the Bulls.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the new star-studded starting five of the Suns, Okogie produced effectively on Friday. The 24-year-old is coming off his best month of the season, averaging 16.1 points and 5.3 rebounds in February. He's unlikely to replicate those numbers for the rest of the season, but he seems like he would be the main beneficiary if any of Phoenix's stars go down with an injury.

Cameron Payne (foot) is questionable for Friday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Payne missed a lot of time before the All-Star break because of a sprained foot, but he's listed questionable and will have a chance to make his return for Friday's game. He may be limited in his first few games back, but his presence would still mean less work for Damion Lee off the bench.

Dario Saric has been traded along with a second-round pick to the Thunder for Darius Bazley. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Saric has averaged around 14 minutes per game so far this season, but he could certainly see his role increase with the Thunder. He'll compete for time in the frontcourt with the likes of Jalen Williams, Kenrich Williams, and Aaron Wiggins.

The Phoenix Suns have traded Mikal Bridges to the Brooklyn Nets as part of a package that will also send Cam Johnson, Jae Crowder, four first-round picks, and a 2028 pick swap to Brooklyn in return for superstar Kevin Durant and T.J. Warren. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bridges has made strides on the offensive end of the floor this season and should be a key piece for a Brooklyn squad re-tooling while still contending for a postseason spot this season. The forward should see plenty of volume and opportunity on the offensive end for fantasy owners going forward.

Cameron Johnson has been ruled out for Friday's game vs the Celtics due to right knee injury management. (Source: Kellan Olson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is a bit of a late addition to the injury report, so it's possible that Johnson is feeling something in his surgically repaired knee. It is officially being called injury management, so it's more likely that he is just getting a day off with a back-to-back coming up Friday and Saturday. Torrey Craig and Dario Saric should see extra time Friday.

Duane Washington Jr. has been waived by the Phoenix Suns. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Washington will be waived by the Phoenix Suns to make room for the newly-acquired Saben Lee. Washington has been solid in his limited work this season, averaging close to 8 points in about 13 minutes per game so far this season. He will likely land with another roster at some point, but he has a lot to do before becoming fantasy relevant.

Jae Crowder has been granted permission to meet with the Milwaukee Bucks ahead of the NBA's trade deadline. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Crowder hasn't played all year after mutually agreeing to seek a trade with the team, and it now seems like he's one step closer to achieving that goal. The team has granted him permission to speak with the Bucks, and that's a deal that could end up getting done in the future. His future fantasy value depends on if or where he gets traded before the deadline.

Damion Lee collected 22 points (3-8 FG, 2-5 3PT, 14-14 FT), seven rebounds and four assists in 31 minutes of Tuesday's 125-113 win over the Warriors.

Fantasy Impact: With Chris Paul, Devin Booker and Cameron Payne out on Tuesday, Lee stepped up off the bench, playing the third-most minutes on the team. The 30-year-old recorded a season-high in points, and he did it by getting to the free throw line and converting all of his 14 attempts. It's unlikely that this performance will be repeated very often this year, but Lee could be considered for DFS if the Suns are forced to play shorthanded again.

Torrey Craig (ankle) is questionable to play in Tuesday's game against the Golden State Warriors. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: The Suns added Craig to the injury report recently. He's dealing with an ankle injury of some kind, and it will put his status for Tuesday in jeopardy. If he's unable to play, Dario Saric may be in line for more work in his absence against Golden State.

Bismack Biyombo is available for Wednesday's game against the Wizards. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Biyombo should be available, but he remains off the fantasy radar with Jock Landale seeing more minutes than him.

Fantasy Impact: Landale is set to return from a two-game absence. He is not fantasy relevant as long as Deandre Ayton is healthy.
