Elfrid Payton will be a game-time decision on Friday, as he'll need to test his knee in warmups after missing the morning shootaround.
Payton had been scuffling along before the injury, though the sheer amount of garbage time the Suns play in did a lot of the damage there. Tyler Ulis has looked strong over the last week or so and is a nice play if Payton sits. He looks to finally have recaptured the backup point guard job and could hold some value as an assists specialist even when Payton returns, so give him a look if you need a point guard. Hopefully Payton can get back to some of his post-deadline form, as otherwise he may be tough to plug into lineups.
