Greg Monroe was put into a bench role by Jay Triano with Tyson Chandler (illness) returning to the starting lineup, scoring 22 points on 8-of-15 shooting (6-of-6 FTs) with 15 rebounds and one block in 32 minutes of Wednesday’s overtime loss to his old Bucks squad.
The Suns rotation is unsettling and interesting because the Suns love trotting the traffic cone known as Chandler out there for whatever purpose. Chandler scored six points with 12 boards and two blocks and that’ll be a high-water mark as he has no real fantasy value, and it’s unclear who’s getting showcased and who will even play in the next game. Alex Len was a DNP-CD and that complicates his stash value, and Monroe has been a must-own player for his talent and the low amount of minutes he needs to be a fantasy asset. Whether playing his old squad was a factor is unknown, but it certainly didn’t hurt Monroe tonight.
