According to the report it’s not a punishment for Chriss, but a tactical move because the Suns need shooters to keep Julius Randle and Brook Lopez away from the basket. Despite coming off the bench Chriss should still see 25-plus minutes of run especially with Bender prone to disappearing. Chriss has not lived up to expectations so far this year, but he remains a hold due to his role and upside for the rest of the season. Last year he came through in the fantasy playoffs for owners and he could still do the same this season.
