    Aron Baynes (nasal fracture) scored 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting adding four rebounds and two assists in Saturday's 134-118 win against the Blazers.

    Baynes got the start at center with Deandre Ayton resting. The biggest surprise to Baynes' game is the incorporation of improved 3PT shooting. He attempted five shots from behind the arc and converted two of them. Though far from a "stretch-four" this adds to his limited fantasy appeal. Unfortunately it may also start to negatively effect his FG% if he moves away from being a bruiser in the paint.

    Aron Baynes scored two points on 1-of-1 shooting with four rebounds and an assist on Thursday.

    Baynes returned to action after suffering a nasal fracture and logged 20 minutes tonight. He has no fantasy value regardless of his injury status as long as Deandre Ayton is healthy.

    Aron Baynes (nasal fracture) will play on Thursday night against the Kings.

    Baynes will be ready to roll for this contest, but he's not ready to roll in most fantasy leagues. Unless Deandre Ayton breaks a leg or gets lost in the desert, I think we're safe to ignore Baynes.

    Aron Baynes (nasal fracture) is listed as probable ahead of Thursday's preseason game vs. the Kings.

    Baynes broke his nose but looks like he will be ready to play in tonight's game. Baynes doesn't have value in redraft leagues unless injuries strike. Monitor his status up until tip-off for DFS lineups.

    Aron Baynes (nasal fracture) is questionable to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Kings.

    Baynes suffered a broken nose in practice last week and has had to miss some preseason games as a result. He should be healthy by the start of the regular season and could return sooner.

    Aron Baynes (nasal fracture) has been ruled out of Tuesday's preseason game against the Wolves.

    Out with a broken nose, the Suns are being cautious with the big man in preseason action. He should be good to go in the regular season, though he won't hold much value other than being Deandre Ayton's backup in standard leagues.

    Aron Baynes (broken nose) is listed as questionable to face the Wolves in Tuesday's preseason game.

    Baynes has that Aussie strength and joked about the incident after it happened. He should be good to go for the regular season, but the team may continue to exercise caution in the exhibition slate.

    Aron Baynes is considered as day-to-day after suffering a broken nose in Saturday's practice.

    Baynes is uncertain to play in Tuesday's preseason opener but it sounds like he'll be good to go for the real games. He holds minimal fantasy value as Deandre Ayton's backup.

    Aron Baynes (nasal fracture) underwent a corrective nasal procedure after taking a shot during Thursday's practice.

    Baynes joked about the incident after practice so there is no reason to think this would hinder him from suiting up on opening night. Baynes has played with a mask before and should be good to go backing up Deandre Ayton on opening night.

    Aron Baynes is sitting out Suns' practice on Friday after getting banged in the nose on Thursday.

    While Baynes did have a large gash from the incident, he joked afterward with reporters, "Did coach say if I'm practicing tomorrow?" This is nothing to worry about as you look at Baynes on draft day. For Baynes to get out of the backup center role something dramatic would have to occur that shifts Deandre Ayton into a hefty dose of power forward minutes.

    James Jones said on Monday that the Suns are "good to go" regarding team health, providing hope that Aron Baynes (groin) may not be too limited during training camp.

    Baynes suffered a groin strain during the FIBA World Cup, but it's sounding like he'll be "good to go" as a backup center in Phoenix shortly. He's not worth a look outside of deep leagues.

    Aron Baynes suffered a groin strain while playing for Australia at the World Cup.

    It's assumed that Baynes suffered the injury in Sunday's game, as he hadn't been hampered at all before then. It's tough timing with camp opening in two weeks but there won't be many minutes available to Baynes as Deandre Ayton's backup this year, so the fantasy impact is minimal. We'll update you when a timeline gets released.

    Patty Mills was the star for Australia, scoring 34 points and hitting four triples against Spain, but Australia fell in double overtime 95-88.

    Mills did as much as he could but he just didn't get enough help from his supporting cast. Joe Ingles couldn't find the basket and only had four points (to go along with 10 rebounds and seven assists). With that off night of shooting from Ingles, the Aussies needed someone like Matthew Dellavedova (six points) or Aron Baynes (six points) to step up.

    Aron Baynes put up 21 points, five rebounds and five 3-pointers in Monday's win over France.

    We were going to say that this might be the first and last time that we see Baynes go for 21 points while matched up against Rudy Gobert, but the 3-point effort explains a lot of that. Look for Baynes to play a limited role as a defensive-minded backup behind Deandre Ayton this season.

  • Patty Mills
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    Patty Mills scored 19 points with nine assists, two steals and two triples as Australia remained undefeated in an 82-76 win over Dominican Republic.

    Mills continues to deliver along with Joe Ingles and Andrew Bogut. Ingles only scored two points while providing elsewhere with seven rebounds, three assists and three steals while Bogut had eight points, eight rebounds and six assists in only 17 minutes. Matthew Dellavedova scored six with seven assists in 27 minutes and Aron Baynes 10 points, five rebounds and two assists in 16. Australia will have a tough matchup against France on Monday.
