While the Suns initially planned on using Mikal Bridges as a small-ball power forward, the signing of Trevor Ariza means they're now thinking of using Bridges as a primary small forward and occasional shooting guard.
Bridges' NBA-ready skillset screams "modern power forward," but the Suns appear intent on using him at the two and three for now with Ariza working at the four. It's not the best news for Bridges' fantasy outlook but there are still so many variables at play here before making any firm forecasts makes sense. Him moving away from power forward will cross Marquese Chriss of his competition list, but the time at shooting guard only adds Troy Daniels. That's in addition to Ariza, Josh Jackson, T.J. Warren and maybe Dragan Bender. Another move should be coming. If the Suns clear enough minutes for Bridges he could be a late-round option in standard leagues, but there's a lot of mouths to feed.
