Elfrid Patyon (knee tendinopathy) will miss Tuesday's season finale against the Mavs.
Payton got off to a hot start after being dealt to the Suns at the deadline, but has floundered since, ranking outside the top-200 over the last 19 games despite playing 29 minutes per game. The 24-year-old will be a restricted free agent this summer and it's unknown if the Suns will match another teams offer. There is a lot up in the air for the crazy haired point guard. For the season he finished as a top-130 asset per game which is worse than his top-100 finish last year. A lot of the former top-10 pick's value will be determined by where he ends up in 2018.
