Phoenix Suns

Fantasy Impact: The decision to waive Harper is a bit of a head scratcher considering the rookie point guard averaged 20.8 points, 5.7 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.0 steal across 30.0 minutes for the Northern Arizona Suns of the G League. The former Auburn product went undrafted in the 2019 NBA draft and was signed to a two-way deal with Phoenix in July, 2019. It appears that Phoenix will let him take his talents elsewhere but given his talent, he'll probably latch on to another team by next season.

Kelly Oubre Jr. (knee) could make his return to the court in mid-April from a torn meniscus he suffered back in late February. (Source: Arizona Republic)

Fantasy Impact: Oubre Jr. had surgery on March 3 to repair a torn meniscus he suffered on February 24. It was reported that he would be re-evaluated after four weeks to see if a return was feasible. At the time, the regular season was set to end on April 15, but now, with the NBA suspension of at least 30 days, Oubre Jr could be cleared for his return around the time the league resumes play. That’s assuming the NBA decides to play regular season games at that time, as the Suns are most likely not going to make the playoffs this year. If you have an open IR spot on your roster, it might not be a bad idea to pick up the Phoenix G/F who was having a top-50 type year before the unfortunate injury.

The NBA has announced that the league will be suspended for a minimum of 30 days, per Bruce Arthur of the Toronto Star. (Source: Bruce Arthur on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The NBA has suspended the season due to coronavirus concerns, and will be paused for at least a 30-day minimum. It has not been reported when the season will continue, but for now expect the NBA to be shut down for at least 30 days. More updates will be provided as soon as the NBA releases them. In a brief announcement released by the official NBA twitter account on Wednesday, the NBA "will use the hiatus to determine next steps moving forward in regard to the coronavirus pandemic."

Aron Baynes contributed seven points (3-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt) to go along with two rebounds, one assist, and a steal over 34 minutes as the Suns lost to the Blazers 121-105 on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: This was a let down game for those who streamed Baynes or played him in any DFS tournaments. It was his fewest field goal attempts over the last three games and his shots just weren't falling. His value will dry up as the Suns have three days off before their next game and Deandre Ayton will surely return to the starting lineup by then. He's not worth holding on to in standard leagues.

Dario Saric totaled 24 points (9-16 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, and one block across 39 minutes as the Suns lost to the Blazers 121-105 on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Saric followed up his season best 24-point performance last Friday, also against the Blazers, with another 24-point effort. He's stepped up for the shorthanded Suns and was one of only three players to notch double-digits in this game. If only Saric could play the Blazers every night he would be a fantasy monster. For now, he's worth playing during this mini hot streak and should be added in deeper leagues for the stretch run.

Mikal Bridges scored eight points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt) along with five rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block over a team-high 43 minutes as the Suns fell to the Blazers 121-105 on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Tonight's performance snapped a six game double-digit scoring streak for the power forward. He's not gonna score many points with only six field goal attempts but it was just an off night for the Suns who fell apart in the fourth quarter. The Suns have some time off before taking on the Mavericks on Saturday.

Ricky Rubio finished with 21 points (4-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 11-11 FT) to go along with nine assists and six rebounds over 36 minutes as the Suns lost to the Blazers 121-105 on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Rubio finished February on a hot streak and has kept it rolling so far in March. Through four games this month he's averaging 18 points, 11 assists, seven rebounds, and two steals per contest. He's playing his best basketball with fantasy playoffs around the corner. The Suns have three days off before visiting the Mavs on Saturday, fire him up.

Devin Booker put up 29 points (9-25 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 9-10 FT) with nine assists and six rebounds across 36 minutes as the Suns lost to the Blazers 121-105 on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Booker has now scored at least 21 points in nine of 10 games while also averaging 9.7 assists over his last four. The turnovers can be troublesome but he's still having a great year. He'll look to stay hot when the Suns take on the Mavericks on Saturday.

Deandre Ayton (ankle) will not play Tuesday against the Trail Blazers, per Suns Coach Monty Williams. (Source: Sean Highkin on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Ayton was listed as questionable earlier in the day, and then was ultimately ruled out. He will miss his third consecutive game. Ayton is trending in the right direction, but will need a few more days to recover from his ankle injury. His next chance to return will be Saturday against the Mavericks.

Cam Johnson (illness) will not play Friday against the Portland Trailblazers. (Source: Duane Rankin on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Unfortunate timing for Johnson, who was coming off a career-high 21 points against the Raptors on Tuesday. Based on how depleted the Phoenix Suns roster is, Johnson will get plenty of chances and deserves to be owned in all formats.

Cheick Diallo managed 10 points (5-6 FG), eight rebounds, and two steals over 22 minutes as the Suns defeated the Warriors 112-106 on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Diallo made his second-consecutive start for the Suns with Deandre Ayton sitting out another game. He had some streaming appeal with all the injuries the Suns sustained but that's likely to change after the All-Star break. Once Ayton is back in the fold it will severely limit Diallo's upside, knocking him off off the fantasy radar.

Jalen Lecque managed four points (1-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) over nine minutes in the Suns' 119-97 loss to the Nets on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: The 19-year-old rookie from Brewster Academy took the court in back-to-back games for the first time this season, and he's barely been involved for the Suns in his first NBA campaign. He's spent the majority of the year with the Northern Arizona Suns and will likely continue to do so for the remainder of the year.

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.

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Elie Okobo scored 0 points (0-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three rebounds, and three assists in 22 minutes of action during the Suns' 123-110 loss to the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact: Coach Monty Williams moved Devin Booker to point guard on Tuesday, with Ricky Rubio missing the game due to personal reasons, which gave Okobo room in the starting lineup. The result wasn't a good game by Okobo who has shot just 39.1 percent during January, including three games where Okobo didn't make a shot. With Rubio returning to the team on Thursday, Okobo should return to his bench role.

Frank Kaminsky will be sidelined indefinitely due to a right patella stress fracture. In the team's statement, they've said there is no timetable for his return but Kaminsky will be re-evaluated in four weeks. (Source: Gina Mizell on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Kaminsky on the shelf, Deandre Ayton, Aron Baynes, and Dario Saric will be the biggest benefactors. With the Suns' experimenting with both Ayton and Baynes on the floor together, Saric will get added minutes with the second unit.
