    Aron Baynes (left hip soreness) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Spurs.

    Baynes' minutes have been trending down, so there isn't much for the Suns to replace. Dario Saric could see some increased minutes along with the rest of the forwards as the minutes trickle down.

    Aron Baynes is doubtful to face the Spurs on Monday as he is dealing with left hip soreness.

    As if you needed any further validation that Aron Baynes' role with the Suns has vanished. With the return of Deandre Ayton, Baynes was going to have a hard time maintaining standard league value, but the drop off has been steep, and perhaps this new injury is part of the problem. Baynes has seen under 15 minutes in three straight games and is an afterthought for standard leagues at this point.

    Aron Baynes had just five points in 15 minutes as he returned to the bench on Thursday.

    Baynes lost his starting spot to Deandre Ayton and has been struggling of late after a strong start. He's probably worth moving on from at this point if his minute share doesn't improve.

  • Deandre Ayton
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Deandre Ayton will start over Aron Baynes on Thursday as they face the Knicks.

    Ayton will start on Thursday after coming off the bench in the last three contests. He has produced mid-round per-game value so far this season but will look to get better as the season rolls along. This will only be Ayton's 11th game of the season due to a 25-game suspension as well as an ankle injury.

    Aron Baynes stuck in the starting lineup on Tuesday but only played 15 minutes, scoring four points to go with five rebounds and a block.

    Though Baynes has managed to stay in the starting five, his minutes have been trending down of late and he's only exceeded 23 minutes twice in his last seven games. We understand why someone might want to hang onto Baynes given his strong run as a starter earlier in the year, but he's outside the top-150 over the last two weeks and most GMs should be able to do better.

    C, Phoenix Suns

    Monty Williams said that DeAndre Ayton will come off the bench during Tuesday's game.

    Aron Baynes will continue to start in the meantime. However, it would be surprising if Ayton didn't regain a starting role eventually. He scored 18 points along with nine rebounds in only 26 minutes on Sunday.

  • Deandre Ayton
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Deandre Ayton logged 30 minutes off the bench on Friday, adding 13 points (6-for-16 shooting), nine rebounds and three blocks.

    Ayton sat in favor of Aron Baynes who got the start but only played 18 minutes and put up eight points with five rebounds. Dario Saric started at power forward and had nine points, two rebounds, a steal and a triple. Ayton is clearly the guy to own here and is worth floating a buy-low trade offer before he's fully back up to speed.

  • Deandre Ayton
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Deandre Ayton exceeded 20 points for the first time this season as he put up a 21-point (10-for-14 FGs), nine-rebound, two-assist, one-block stat line in 37 minutes in a loss to the Kings on Tuesday.

    Ayton is rounding into shape and is already doing about what he did last season. There's clearly room for improvement, and that should come as he meshes more with his new teammates. Fellow starter Aron Baynes didn't fare quite as well tonight, as he went for just five points, seven rebounds and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

  • Frank Kaminsky
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Frank Kaminsky (right patella stress fracture) is out indefinitely and will be reevaluated in four weeks.

    Kaminsky has been on the injury report for a couple weeks with knee soreness and has missed the last three games so it's very likely this stems from that. Although he has played 22.4 minutes per game on the season, his playing was expected to drastically decrease anyway with Deandre Ayton back. There should be no fantasy implications here as Cheick Diallo will likely replace him as the third string center in the meantime with Aron Baynes maybe getting a slight additional boost as well.

    Aron Baynes started alongside Deandre Ayton on Friday night and delivered a solid performance with 20 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, a block and two 3-pointers.

    The jokes about Baynes and Ayton starting together actually came true, and while the fit can be clunky it's probably a look worth investigating considering Baynes' effectiveness and how much the Suns have invested in Ayton. We wouldn't expect both players to have productive games like this simultaneously every night but Baynes should be in lineups while this arrangement lasts.

    Aron Baynes will stick in the Suns' starting lineup and will share the paint with Deandre Ayton, sending Dario Saric to the bench.

    This is an interesting move. Baynes and Ayton make for a big frontcourt duo. Saric has been on a slump and maybe in the doghouse. Keep an eye on how Baynes and Ayton play alongside each other.

  • Deandre Ayton
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Deandre Ayton played 31 minutes off the Suns bench on Wednesday and looked pretty good as he delivered 16 points on 7-of-13 shooting with 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

    Ayton is finally playing close to what owners are expecting him to produce. He should re-enter the starting lineup soon, making Aron Baynes (four points, five rebounds, two assists, one block) a fade in most formats.

  • Deandre Ayton
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Deandre Ayton (sprained ankle) came off the bench and had a minute limit on Monday, but looked decent as he grabbed 12 rebounds and scored six points on 3-of-9 shooting in 20 minutes.

    He played. He was active. He did not experience a setback. Those were the biggest boxes Ayton was able to check tonight. He should return to form soon enough, pushing Aron Baynes (12 points, 5-of-11 shooting, nine rebounds, two 3s, two assists) to the bench. Activate Ayton, hold Baynes to see if he can hold some value as a backup big man.

    Aron Baynes scored 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting with six rebounds and one 3-pointer over 30 minutes in Saturday's win over the Kings.

    Baynes hasn't really gotten back up to speed following a calf injury and he's just a late-round value on the season now after a mid-round start. Owners would be wise to wait and see if he can bounce back but if he can't turn it around in 5-10 games then he'll start showing up on the wire in competitive and deeper formats.

  • Deandre Ayton
    C, Phoenix Suns

    DeAndre Ayton (right ankle sprain) will not play against the Kings on Saturday.

    Ayton will miss his fifth consecutive game with the injury and has only appeared in two games all season. Coach Monty Williams said on Thursday that Ayton was doing more in practice and is considered day-to-day. Aron Baynes will continue starting at center in the meantime with Frank Kaminsky backing him up.
