Eric Bledsoe, G11/16/2014 11:15:00 AM
Description: Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe did not hit a field goal attempt on Saturday.
Insight: Bledsoe has been awful in a couple games this season, and his shooting percentage has not been any worse than it was Saturday. Well, it can't be worse because he shot 0-for-6 and scored just one point. He did have 10 assists and five rebounds to salvage the terrible fantasy night.
Eric Bledsoe, G11/15/2014 9:16:00 AM
Description: Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe posted a double-double on Friday night.
Insight: He had 22 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block, and only one trunover in 38 minutes of action. Bledsoe is averaging 14.7 ppg, 4.9 apg, and 4.9 rpg. Those are nice numbers, but owners need to know there a lot of mouths to feed in Phoenix.
Eric Bledsoe, G11/8/2014 9:17:00 AM
Description: Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe still has not gotten his deep shot going.
Insight: Bledsoe was 4-for-6 from downtown in the first two games, but since the calender switched to November, Bledsoe has been shooting just 25 percent from behind the arc. He was 1-for-5 on Friday. Bledsoe, however, did have 23 points, eight assists and five rebounds.
Markieff Morris, F11/5/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Suns power forward Markieff Morris posted another double-double in Tuesday's win over the Lakers.
Insight: He had 23 points and 10 rebounds, and is now averaging 17.0 ppg and 7.8 rpg. Markieff is clearly the better fantasy option than his brother, Marcus.
Isaiah Thomas, G11/5/2014 10:36:00 AM
Description: Suns point guard Isaiah Thomas continued his stellar play off the bench in Tuesday's win over the Lakers.
Insight: He was 8-of-16 from the field including one 3-pointer, for 22 points and nine assists. Thomas is averaging 19.5 ppg and 4.5 apg. It will be interesting to see if he can keep these numbers up, as Thomas will continue to be a reserve.
Gerald Green, G/F11/5/2014 10:22:00 AM
Description: Suns guard Gerald Green scored 26 points in 23 minutes on Tuesday.
Insight: He was 11-of-19 from the field, including two 3-pointers. Green has played so far, averaging 14.0 ppg and 1.50 spg., but owners need to know his minutes will be slightly limited as the season progresses.
T.J. Warren, F11/4/2014 1:18:00 PM
Description: Suns forward T.J. Warren (fractured thumb) is still probably about a week away from returning to the court.
Insight: That's the good news. The bad news is that he's third on the depth chart behind Marcus Morris and P.J. Tucker and not likely to see much playing time.
Eric Bledsoe, G11/2/2014 10:37:00 AM
Description: Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe had another bismol shooting night on Saturday.
Insight: Bledsoe shot 3-for-11 against the Jazz and missed all five 3-point attempts he took. He is shooting just 33 percent in the first week of the 2014-2015 season.
Markieff Morris, F11/1/2014 9:21:00 AM
Description: Suns power forward Markieff Morris posted a double-double in Friday's win.
Insight: He had 20 points and 11 rebounds, along with three assists and one block. Morris was also 6-of-6 from the line, and if owners get this type of production consistently, it will help a ton of fantasy teams.
Isaiah Thomas, GHot11/1/2014 9:19:00 AM
Description: Suns backup point guard Isaiah Thomas ignited the team again, in Friday's win over the Spurs.
Insight: He came off the bench and played 29 minutes, scoring 23 points, with four assists and two turnovers. After scoring 23 in the opener as well, Thomas is looking like an early candidate for Sixth Man of the Year.
Goran Dragic, G10/31/2014 12:40:00 PM
Description: If the first game is an indication, Suns guard Goran Dragic is going to take a hit to his assists total with Eric Bledoe in the lineup.
Insight: He had career-high averages in points (20.3 PPG), assists (5.9 APG), rebounds (3.2 RPG), field goal percentage (.505 FG%), and three-pointers made per game (1.6 3PM) last season. With Eric Bledsoe healthy and the addition of Isaiah Thomas, Dragic's numbers might take a significant hit. But it's only one game and we aren't ready to draw season-long conclusions.
Marcus Morris, FHot10/31/2014 12:38:00 PM
Description: Suns forward Marcus Morris exploded for 21 points in his 2014-15 debut.
Insight: We aren't sure where this one came from. He's a career 8.2 ppg scorer. let's see him do it again before we get too excited.
Isaiah Thomas, GHot10/31/2014 12:35:00 PM
Description: Sunsbackup point guard Isaiah Thomas was spectacular in his debut, scoring 23 points on 9-of-11 shooting in just 20 minutes.
Insight: We're not sure he can keep up that type of production, but we liked the start. He's got to carve out minutes behind Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe.
Gerald Green, G/F10/22/2014 2:36:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Gerald Green should be a late-round asset for fantasy owners this season.
Insight: Green had a fine 2013-14 season, as he averaged 15.8 points per game, 3.4 rebounds per game, 0.9 steals per game, 2.5 three-pointers per game, along with shooting 45 percent from the field and 85 percent from the free throw line. Owners need to target him around the 13th round.
Marcus Morris, F10/22/2014 12:49:00 PM
Description: Suns forward Marcus Morris will not be a valuable fantasy player heading into the season.
Insight: He should see time at sall forward, but his firmly behind P.J. Tucker on the depth chart. Barring injuries, leave Morris undrafted.
Isaiah Thomas, G10/22/2014 12:46:00 PM
Description: Suns PG Isaiah Thomas is a bit of a wild card heading into the 2014-15 season.
Insight: He started 54 games for the Kings last season, and is now firmly entrenched as the Suns' sixth man heading into this season. Look for Thomas to be around his career-averages of 15.3 points per game, 4.8 assists per game, 1.3 steals per game, while shooting 45 percent from the field. As a result, owners should start thinking about taking Thomas in the ninth round offantasy drafts.
Goran Dragic, G10/22/2014 12:43:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Goran Dragic should be selected in the thirdround of fantasy drafts this season.
Insight: He had career-high averages in points (20.3 PPG), assists (5.9 APG), rebounds (3.2 RPG), field goal percentage (.505 FG%), and three-pointers made per game (1.6 3PM) last season. While his scoring may not be as high this season, with Eric Bledsoe healthy, combined with the addition of Isaiah Thomas, Dragic's other numbers could easily increase, making him an extremely valuable fantasy asset.
Eric Bledsoe, G10/22/2014 12:39:00 PM
Description: Now that Eric Bledsoe contract has been taken care of, he can focus of playing basketball for the Suns, along with producing for fantasy owners.
Insight: Last season, he averaged a career-high 17.7 points per game, 5.5 assists per game, 4.7 rebounds per game, 1.6 steals per game, along with shooting 48 percent from the field and hitting 1.3 three-pointers per game. Bledsoe is one of the most talented players in the NBA, and owners should consider drafting him starting in the third round.
P.J. Tucker, F10/22/2014 12:35:00 PM
Description: Suns small forward P.J. Tucker will have a tough time being a valuable fantasy asset in 2014-15.
Insight: While he gave solid rebounding production (6.5 RPG) last season, Tucker simply does not provide enough elsewhere (9.4 PPG, 1.7 APG, 1.4 SPG), for owners to take him even in the middle rounds. We would probably leave Tucker undrafted, but if anybody really wants him, target him late in drafts.
Miles Plumlee, F/C10/22/2014 12:31:00 PM
Description: Suns center Miles Plumlee will begin the season as the team's starting big man.
Insight: Alex Len should push for more minutes, but Plumlee should be able to at least duplicate his averages of 8.1 points per game, 7.8 rebounds per game, and 1.1 blocks per game, from last season. With that being the case, owners should look to draft Plumlee around the 14th or 15th round.
Markieff Morris, F10/22/2014 12:28:00 PM
Description: Suns power forward Markieff Morris should be targeted in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts for the upcoming season.
Insight: He did not make any starts last season, but is penciled in as the starting power forward to begin 2014-15. Morris will have a chance to improve on last season's averages of 13.8 points per game, 6.0 rebounds per game, 0.6 blocks per game, and 0.8 steals per game. Markieff is the brother owners want to draft in fantasy, this season.
T.J. Warren, F10/11/2014 10:30:00 AM
Description: Suns forward T.J. Warren looked fantastic on Friday, scoring 10 points and grabbing six rebounds, against the Nuggets.
Insight: Warren shot 4-for-8 from the field and made two from behind the arc. With P.J. Tucker suspended, Warren will be in the Suns rotation to start the year. He probably isn't worth drafting, but keep an eye on this 21-year-old.
Eric Bledsoe, G8/21/2014 12:25:00 PM
Description: According to Jude LaCava of FOX Phoenix, the Suns are attempting to trade restricted free agent eric Bledsoe.
Insight: Bledsoe wants a five-year max contract, but the biggest contract the Suns have offered him is four years and $48 million. Injures limited Bledsoe to 43 games last season, but in those games, he averaged 17.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.6 steals. If John Wall can get a max deal it's not crazy to think Bledsoe (17.7 ppg, 5.5 apg, 4.7 rpg) will get one also. As a restricted free agent, the Suns can match any offer Bledsoe receives on the open market. There's been some speculation that Phoenix could deal Bledsoe or point guard Goran Dragic to Minnesota as part of a trade for Kevin Love.
Isaiah Thomas, G8/15/2014 3:50:00 PM
Description: Suns PG Isaiah Thomas, who agreed to a four-year, $27 million deal, had arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist on Thursday.
Insight: The 5-foot-9 Thomas averaged 20.3 ppg and 6.3 apg last season for Saqcramento. The team says he is expected to be ready for training camp.
P.J. Tucker, F8/12/2014 4:05:00 PM
Description: Suns swingman P.J. Tucker will spend the first three games of the 2014-15 season on the bench after being suspended by the NBA for a DUI according to nba.com.
Insight: Tucker blew a .222 blood alcohol level when the legal limit in Arizona is .08. The small forward averaged 9.4 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 1.7 apg last season
Dionte Christmas, G7/24/2014 8:24:00 PM
Description: There will be no Christmas in Phoenix this season, the team waived guard Dionte Christmas Thursday.
Insight: The Suns are loaded in the backcourt with Goran Dragic, Isaiah Thomas, Tyler Ennis, Eric Bledsoe and Gerald Green. Christmass averaged just six minutes per game over 31 contests scoring 2.3 ppg.
Eric Bledsoe, G6/8/2014 4:08:00 PM
Description: Impending free agent Eric Bledsoe is expected to get a max deal this summer. SOURCE: Marc Spears, Yahoo Sports
Insight: If John Wall can get a max deal it's not crazy to think Bledsoe (17.7 ppg, 5.5 apg, 4.7 rpg) will get one also. As a restricted free agent, the Suns can match any offer Bledsoe receives on the open market. There's been some speculation that Phoenix could deal Bledsoe or point guard Goran Dragic to Minnesota as part of a trade for Kevin Love.
Goran Dragic, G4/23/2014 12:28:00 PM
Description: Congratulations to Suns guard Goran Dragic, who was just named the NBA's Most Improved Player for 2013-14.
Insight: Lance Stephenson (second) and Anthony Davis (third) would have been fine choices also but Dragic was probably the most deserving of the three. He took a Phoenix squad that was supposed to be one of league's worst and almost made it a playoff team (finished one game behind Dallas for eighth in the Western Conference). Dragic (20.3 ppg, 5.9 apg) will be on everyone's radar next season.
Goran Dragic, G4/15/2014 6:19:00 PM
Description: Now that Phoenix has been eliminated, the Suns will rest ailing point guard Goran Dragic Wednesday in the regular season finale. SOURCE: Matt Petersen, Suns.com
Insight: He's been playing through a painful ankle injury. Eric Bledsoe (18.0 ppg, 5.5 apg) will start at point guard with Gerald Green (15.8 ppg) occupying the two-guard spot.
Goran Dragic, G4/14/2014 5:13:00 PM
Description: Phoenix guard Goran Dragic (ankle) will play through his injury "no matter how it feels at this point," coach Jeff Hornacek said. SOURCE: Paul Coro, Arizona Republic
Insight: Dragic played through his sprained ankle Saturday and will do so again Monday against the Grizzlies in what is a huge game for both teams.
Goran Dragic, G4/12/2014 7:38:00 PM
Description: Phoenix guard Goran Dragic will start Saturday against Dallas. He had been questionable with an ankle injury. SOURCE: Paul Coro, Arizona Republic
Insight: Phoenix's season is on the line and the Suns need their best player, healthy or not. Dragic netted 28 points on 12-of-20 shooting the last time these teams met.
Goran Dragic, G4/12/2014 11:36:00 AM
Description: Suns guard Goran Dragic (sprained left ankle) did not play Friday and is questionable for Saturday's game against Dallas.
Insight: The Suns, Mavericks and Grizzlies are tied for the seventh and eighth spots in the Western Conference, so not having Dragic would be a huge blow. Gerald Green has 27 points on Friday and is a viable option if Dragic can't go Saturday.
Gerald Green, G/FHot4/11/2014 10:56:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Gerald Green started with Goran Dragic (ankle) out and had 27 points against the Spurs Friday night.
Insight: Green has averaged 26 points and 4.3 threes per game over his last four games.
Eric Bledsoe, GHot4/11/2014 10:53:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Eric Bledsoe's 30 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists were not enough for Phoenix to defeat the Spurs Friday night.
Insight: Goran Dragic was out of the lineup so Bledsoe saw more offensive chances. Bledsoe, Gerald Green and Markieff Morris combined for 77 points and the rest of the Suns had 27. Bledsoe has averaged 20.1 points, 5.6 boards, 5.0 assists and 1.7 steals his last 11 games.
Goran Dragic, G4/11/2014 7:22:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Goran Dragic (sprained ankle) will not play Friday, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic.
Insight: The Suns and Mavericks are just one game ahead of the Grizzlies for the seventh and eighth spots in the Western Conference, so not having Dragic against the Spurs on Friday will hurt. Gerald Green has been playing well and will start; he should be in all fantay lineups.
Goran Dragic, G4/11/2014 5:33:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Goran Dragic (sprained ankle) is doubtful for Friday's game, according to the Arizona Republic.
Insight: The Suns and Mavericks are just one game ahead of the Grizzlies for the seventh and eighth spots in the Western Conference, so not having Dragic against the Spurs on Friday will hurt. Gerald Green has been playing well and likely will start if Dragic can't play.
P.J. Tucker, F4/9/2014 10:34:00 PM
Description: Suns swingman P.J. Tucker had 15 points, nine rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes Wednesday at New Orleans.
Insight: Tucker has been one of the top rebounders among shooting-guard eligible players this season and averaged 11.1 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.9 steals and 1.1 threes over his last 18 games.
Gerald Green, G/FHot4/9/2014 10:31:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Gerald Green has averaged 22.8 points over his last five games.
Insight: Green has been fine since Eric Bledsoe returned and sent him back to the bench. In 13 games since that happened, Green has generated 18.1 points and 3.0 threes per game. He had 21 points, two rebounds and four threes Wednesday.
Goran Dragic, G3/29/2014 9:31:00 AM
Description: Suns guard Goran Dragic had everything working Friday in a win against New York.
Insight: Dragic left the game briefly to get five stitches over his left eye, but he came back to score 32 points on 11-of-17 shooting. He was 5-of-9 from three-point range. His 20.6 ppg scoring average is the highest by a Phoenix player since Amare Stoudemire led the team with 23.1 ppg back in 2010.
Goran Dragic, G3/26/2014 10:14:00 PM
Description: Phoenix guard Goran Dragic put up 25 points in Wednesday's win over Washington.
Insight: The seven rebounds and six assists were just icing on the cake. Dragic has averaged 20.0 ppg on 56.9 percent shooting during the Suns' five-game winning streak.
Markieff Morris, F3/23/2014 7:42:00 PM
Description: Suns power forward Markieff Morris went off for 25 points, eight rebounds and two blocks Sunday in a win against Minnesota.
Insight: Morris, a 31.6 percent three-point shooter for the season, shot 3-of-3 from that distance on Sunday. The ten field goals Morris made were his most since December 6th.
Channing Frye, CCold3/17/2014 10:02:00 PM
Description: Suns power forward Channing Frye has scored in single figures in nine of his last 13 games.
Insight: He had seven points in 19 minutes on Monday and hasn't been doing enough to help fantasy owners in the past month.
Gerald Green, G/F3/17/2014 9:59:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Gerald Green had 17 points, three threes and two steals in 31 minutes Monday at Brooklyn.
Insight: Green has averaged 26.3 minutes, 16.3 points, 2.7 triples and 2.3 rebounds in three games since Eric Bledsoe took back the starting shooting guard job and sent Green to the bench.
Markieff Morris, FHot3/16/2014 4:20:00 PM
Description: Phoenix forward Markieff Morris exploded for 16 points and 14 rebounds Sunday in a win against Toronto.
Insight: That's Morris' highest rebounding total since January 26th versus Cleveland. His 16.1 ppg scoring average in March is his highest for any month this season. Look for him to stay hot Monday against Brooklyn.
Gerald Green, G/F3/16/2014 4:13:00 PM
Description: Gerald Green dropped 28 points on the Raptors Sunday in a 121-113 Suns victory.
Insight: Maybe Green and Eric Bledsoe (14 points) can coexist after all. Green sunk five of his eight three-pointers and was 5-of-6 from the free throw line. Phoenix has now won two straight.
Gerald Green, G/FCold3/14/2014 9:55:00 PM
Description: Suns shooting guard Gerald Green played just 21 minutes and made 2-of-9 from the field (0-5 3PT) for four points Friday.
Insight: This is what we were afraid would happen when Eric Bledsoe returned to the starting lineup. Green averaged 31.7 minutes, 18.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.4 threes and 1.2 steals in 33 games with Bledsoe out of the lineup, but there's only so many minutes to go around. It doesn't help that Green is mired in a 12-of-37 (.324) shooting slump his last three games while hitting 0-of-11 3-point attempts his last two.
Eric Bledsoe, G3/14/2014 5:12:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Eric Bledsoe will move back into the starting lineup Friday, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic.
Insight: Phoenix brought Bledsoe off the bench in his return from knee surgery on Wednesday but still played him 32 minutes. He'll replace Gerald Green in the starting lineup. Green has averaged 31.8 minutes, 17.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.5 threes and 1.1 steals in 46 starts this season, compared to 22.8 minutes, 11.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 threes and 0.4 steals off the bench. However, after he excelled with Bledsoe out of the lineup, look for the Suns to still try to get Green close to 30 mpg.
Gerald Green, G/F3/14/2014 12:07:00 PM
Description: If you have been using Suns shooting guard Gerald Green during his hot March (23.3 ppg) be prepared for the possibility that just back from the injured list Eric Bledsoe will replace him in the starting five.
Insight: Phoenix is 3-7 over their last 10 games and coach Jeff Hornacek is looking to make some changes, according to an Arizona Republic report.
Eric Bledsoe, G3/13/2014 4:55:00 PM
Description: Suns coach Jeff Hornacek is contemplating whether or not to put Eric Bledsoe in the starting lineup Friday, according to Matt Petersen of suns.com.
Insight: Phoenix brought Bledsoe off the bench in his return from knee surgery on Wednesday but still played him 32 minutes. He had 15 points, nine assists, three rebounds and two steals and is a must start in all fantasy leagues even if he remains on the bench. We'll see how the Suns divide the playing time of Gerald Green, P.J. Tucker and Marcus Morris now that Bledsoe is back.
Marcus Morris, F3/12/2014 4:57:00 PM
Description: Marcus Morris will start in place of P.J. Tucker on Wednesday, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. Tucker is suspended for hitting Blake Griffin on Monday.
Insight: If Eric Bledsoe wasn't making his return from an injury we probably would see a starting lineup that included Bledsoe, Goran Dragic and Gerald Green with Tucker out, but Bledsoe is being eased back into action after missing two and a half months with a torn meniscus.
Eric Bledsoe, G3/12/2014 2:56:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Eric Bledsoe (torn meniscus) will come off the bench Wednesday versus Cleveland. SOURCE: Matt Peterson, Suns.com
Insight: This will be Bledsoe's first game in two and a half months. When healthy, he's a must-start.
P.J. Tucker, F3/11/2014 7:29:00 PM
Description: Suns swingman P.J. Tucker has indeed been suspended for Wednesday's game against Cleveland. SOURCE: Paul Coro, Arizona Republic
Insight: Tucker (9.4 ppg, 6.6 rpg) took a swing at Blake Griffin on Monday and the league has rules against that sort of thing. It's a huge break for Gerald Green (15.7 ppg), who was probably headed back to the bench with Eric Bledsoe (torn meniscus) set to return from a two-month absence.
P.J. Tucker, F3/11/2014 9:59:00 AM
Description: Phoenix G/F P.J. Tucker threw a punch at Blake Griffin Monday night and fantasy owners should prepare for his suspension.
Insight: Tucker doesn't score much but is one of the top rebounders at his position (6.6 rpg). This only helps Gerald Green, who is already averaging 22.0 ppg over his last six contests.
Alex Len, CCold3/11/2014 9:49:00 AM
Description: Suns rookie center Alex Len has returned to his backup role with Miles Plumlee back to health.
Insight: Like most rookies, Len's production is based on court time and he hasn't gotten much of that this season. He's safe to drop in all leagues.
Miles Plumlee, F/C3/11/2014 9:45:00 AM
Description: Suns center Miles Plumlee took two games to return to form after returning from a knee injury. On Monday he scored 12 points and hauled down nine rebounds with a pair of blocks in 26 minutes of action.
Insight: Plumlee (8.6 ppg, 8.2 rpg) had played just 10 minutes in his first game on Sunday. His Monday numbers are encouraging and he should be watched to see if he can consistently reach those totals.
Eric Bledsoe, G3/10/2014 9:41:00 PM
Description: Phoenix guard Eric Bledsoe won't be available Monday against the Clippers but he's still hoping to play Wednesday versus Cleveland. Bledsoe has been out since tearing his meniscus in late December. SOURCE: Paul Coro, Arizona Republic
Insight: Gerald Green has been a stud in Bledsoe's absence, averaging 18.7 ppg in 31 games since January 1st. We'll see how those two co-exist Wednesday when Bledsoe makes his long-awaited return.
Miles Plumlee, F/C3/10/2014 9:35:00 PM
Description: Suns center Miles Plumlee will draw the start Monday against Los Angeles.
Insight: Plumlee (8.5 ppg, 8.2 rpg) returned from a knee injury Sunday versus Golden State but he came off the bench and only played ten minutes. Rookie Alex Len averaged 5.0 ppg on 45.5 percent shooting during his three-game stint in the starting lineup.
Eric Bledsoe, G3/8/2014 4:36:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Eric Bledsoe (knee) said he likely will return to action Wednesday against the Cavaliers, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic.
Insight: He'll sit out at least two more games, adding to the 37 he's already missed due to a torn meniscus. Bledsoe averaged 33.5 minutes, 18 points and 5.8 assists before the injury and will reduce the fantasy value of both Goran Dragic and Gerald Green when he returns. However, all three players are still worth rostering in all leagues.
Miles Plumlee, F3/6/2014 4:49:00 PM
Description: Suns PF/C Miles Plumlee will not be available for Thursday's game against OKC. He's out with a sprained right knee. SOURCE: Craig Brialou, ArizonaSports.com
Insight: We assumed this would be the case. Alex Len will make his second start in a row at center. He only saw 19 minutes Tuesday against the Clippers (six points, six rebounds).
Miles Plumlee, F3/6/2014 9:42:00 AM
Description: Phoenix F/C Miles Plumlee (right knee sprain) has been downgraded to doubtful for Thursday's game after missing Wednesday's practice. SOURCE: Paul Coro, Arizona Republic
Insight: Plumlee (8.6 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 1.3 bpg) has been battling a right knee sprain and missed Tuesday's game. With Plumlee out, rookie Alex Len made his first career start and split minutes with Shavlik Randolph. Neither did enough to be fantasy worthy. Markieff Morris also saw time at center.
Eric Bledsoe, G3/5/2014 10:43:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Eric Bledsoe will return from his knee injury sometime within the next week. SOURCE: Arizona Republic
Insight: He could be back as early as Sunday, though it's more likely Bledsoe (18.0 ppg, 5.8 apg, 4.3 rpg) will return Monday against the Clippers or Wednesday versus Cleveland. We haven't seen him play in a game since December 30th.
Miles Plumlee, F3/5/2014 3:49:00 PM
Description: Phoenix F/C Miles Plumlee (right knee sprain) is questionable for Thursday's game. SOURCE: Paul Coro, Arizona Republic
Insight: Plumlee (8.6 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 1.3 bpg) has been battling a right knee sprain and missed Tuesday's game. With Plumlee out, rookie Alex Len made his first career start and split minutes with Shavlik Randolph. Markieff Morris also saw time at center.
Goran Dragic, G3/5/2014 3:48:00 PM
Description: Phoenix guard Goran Dragic has a left side strain and missed Wednesday's practice, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic.
Insight: Dragic (20.4 ppg, 6.2 apg, 3.5 apg) is probable for Thursday's game against the Thunder.
Leandro Barbosa, G3/5/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: Phoenix guard Leandro Barbosa (fractured hand) won't need surgery and will miss four-to-six weeks with his injury, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic.
Insight: Barbosa is only averaging 18.4 minutes per game this season as a reserve guard. His injury won't matter in fantasy leagues.
P.J. Tucker, F3/5/2014 9:25:00 AM
Description: Phoenix G/F P.J. Tucker had a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds in 39 minutes Tuesday.
Insight: Tucker doesn't score much but is one of the top rebounders among shooting guards. He has averaged 10.1 points, 8.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.5 steals his last 11 games. Tucker will probably see fewer minutes when Eric Bledsoe returns to the lineup, as the Suns will have to find time for Gerald Green and his 15.2 ppg.
