Elfrid Payton (left knee tendinopathy) is listed as questionable for Friday's matchup with the Rockets after he was unable to participate in Thursday's practice.
Payton sat out Wednesday's game and Tyler Ulis ran wild with 23 points in 37 minutes while Shaquille Harrison nabbed four steals and a career-high 17 points off the bench. Those two would be nice short-term options if Payton misses another game, though Ulis is the better play of the two. The potential return of Devin Booker would also hurt both but Ulis probably has enough gas in the tank to be worth your trouble regardless. He's been playing well over the last week and should be an asset for assists at the very least. Payton is still worth holding if you can afford to be patient but not everyone has that luxury, so do what you've got to do.
