    Kelly Oubre Jr. (torn right meniscus) may be back in the lineup if the NBA regular season resumes in mid-April.

    Oubre was scheduled to be re-evaluated after four weeks as of March 3 so if the NBA does resume in mid-April, he may be ready to go after the six-week layoff. In the seven games Oubre has missed with the injury, Dario Saric has stepped into the starting lineup and is averaging 30.3 minutes while Mikal Bridges has been playing a whopping 39.4 minutes per game so they might be scaled back a tad if Oubre does return.

    Dario Saric had a strong showing in Tuesday's loss to the Blazers, recording an unexpected double-double with 24 points on 9-of-16 shooting, adding 11 rebounds, four 3s and two assists plus a block.

    Saric has run hot-and-cold with seemingly unpredictable frequency post-ASB. This was obviously one of his better games, but he can just as easily fall off a cliff in his next one, limiting him to being a points-and-threes streamer in most formats.

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Aron Baynes thrived once again, this time on Sunday against the Bucks, accounting for 24 points (8-of-16 FG, 4-of-5 FT), seven rebounds, four 3-pointers and one block.

    Deandre Ayton remains day-to-day for the Suns who next play on Tuesday, which means we have one more opportunity in the near future to cash in on Baynes as the starting center for the Suns. After that, the Suns don't play until Saturday, and it is likely that Ayton is back in action by then. These last two games serve as an excellent reminder to stream Baynes when he is getting major minutes. Dario Saric also succeeded in this one, going for 11 points, five rebounds, three 3-pointers and one steal in 26 minutes. Saric's path is a bit more promising long-term as Kelly Oubre (knee) is most likely done for the season, and Saric should still have a decent role in the rotation when Ayton returns. Feel free to roster him in standard leagues if you don't mind the thin schedule he has next week.

    Dario Saric scored 24 points (9-for-13 FG, 2-for-4 3PT) with eight rebounds, three steals and a block across 38 minutes in Friday's loss.

    With Ayton out, Saric started alongside Mikal Bridges on the wing who also chipped in a solid 18 points (7-for-10 FG, 2-for-4 3PT), five rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block. It sounds like Ayton could be back as early as Sunday which would limit Saric's upside.

  • Deandre Ayton
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Deandre Ayton will miss Friday's contest against the Blazers due to his left ankle sprain.

    With Ayton out the Suns will turn to Aron Baynes and Dario Saric on Friday. It does sound like Ayton is making a quick recovery so its possible he is ready to play on Sunday against the Bucks. In the meantime, Baynes and Saric should make for decent streaming options.

    Cameron Johnson (illness) has been ruled out ahead of Friday's contest vs. the Blazers.

    Cam has seen his minutes and role increase over the last couple of weeks with the injury to Kelly Oubre Jr. (knee). This doesn't seem to be anything significant so expect Johnson to return for the team's next game which is on Sunday. He could sustain value at the end of benches in standard leagues for the rest of the season for teams in need of three-pointers. Dario Šarić, Elie Okobo and Jevon Carter all candidates to see extra minutes on Friday.

    Kelly Oubre is having surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee and will miss the remainder of the season.

    Oubre owners who were holding out hope that maybe their top-50 asset could get back on the court can now officially cut bait. With Oubre gone, Mikal Bridges, Dario Saric and Cameron Johnson will see their roles and minutes increase.

  • Kelly Oubre Jr.
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Kelly Oubre Jr. will be out indefinitely with a torn meniscus in his right knee.

    It was also reported that Oubre is going to get a second opinion. It is unlikely that the second opinion will reveal anything different but it could be worth holding onto him until we get confirmation. Unfortunately, it does appear that he will be out for at least a few weeks and maybe even the rest of the season. Cam Johnson, Mikal Bridges and Dario Šarić will all see more opportunity with Oubre out.

    Dario Saric will start Wednesday's game due to the injury to Kelly Oubre Jr.

    Saric scored 14 points in only 16 minutes on Monday. Sporadic usage has really hurt his fantasy value, but he could be a decent DFS play against the Clippers.

    Dario Saric (left ankle sprain) is available vs. the Jazz on Monday.

    Saric has lost all standard league value, and will have a tough time fighting his way back to relevance coming off the bench as he has been.

    Still dealing with a left ankle sprain, Dario Saric is probable to take on the Jazz on Monday.

    Saric just took the court on Friday and Saturday in a back-to-back slate and should be okay to face the Jazz. While he received nearly 20 minutes on Friday vs. the Raptors, he saw less than five against the Bulls, making him a shaky option for deep leagues until we see him grasp a firmer role in the Suns' rotation.

  • Deandre Ayton

    Deandre Ayton (left ankle soreness) will play on Saturday without minutes restrictions, as will the rest of the Suns aside from Frank Kaminsky.

    For those keeping track, that's good for Aron Baynes, Elie Okobo and Dario Saric. Everyone played on Friday but there was some concern over whether everyone would be ready for the back-to-back situation. Fire up your Suns as usual.

  • Dario Saric
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Dario Saric (left ankle) scored eight points and added five rebounds and three assists in the Suns' road loss to the Raptors on Friday.

    He got double the number of minutes that fellow Suns front court member Aron Baynes got in his return from injury tonight, so that is a good sign. If Saric can continue to receive 20 or so minutes per game, he is likely to maintain value the rest of the way. There's a good shot he is on the waiver wire unless you are in a deeper league and he is worth monitoring.

    Dario Saric is ready to play on Friday against the Raptors, and his left ankle sprain will not keep him out of the lineup.

    Saric will make his return to the rotation from a seven-game absence, during which Mikal Bridges was able to establish some standard league value with consistency. Saric's place in this roster is limited as a result, but he could work his way back into 14-team value if Bridges or Frank Kaminsky are pushed aside for his benefit. For the time being, just consider Saric a deep league asset.

    Dario Saric (left ankle sprain) is probable to play on Friday.

    Saric has fallen off the map a bit, dipping in and out of a solid rotation role even before getting hurt. He's been out for the last seven games and his return will have Mikal Bridges fantasy owners sweating pretty good. We'll see if the Suns avoid a value-killing timeshare.
