Greg Monroe was freed from DNP purgatory on Thursday, playing 27 minutes and posting eight points, 12 rebounds and seven assists.
Monroe picked up three DNPs for reasons that are unknown to us, but he certainly made a case to keep playing with this line. Fantasy owners would’ve liked to see some defensive stats but we’ll settle for anything that keeps him in the rotation every night. Alex Len got off to a hot start but slowed considerably in this one, winding up with eight points, six rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes. The fact that Tyson Chandler was scratched certainly helped both of them tonight, and unfortunately the Suns are a virtual lock to stick to their DNP rotation going forward. Monroe, Len, Chandler is the order of fantasy viability but owning any one of the three will force you to track the Suns every single night for DNP purposes. Godspeed.
