    Dario Saric started again on Tuesday against the Hawks but didn't do much, posting four points, two assists and a steal in 19 minutes.

    Saric has been around the 20-minute mark over his last four games, and although that's a big improvement over his brief stint with five minutes a night, it's clear that The Homie isn't a viable standard-league guy anymore — starting or otherwise.

    Dario Saric is expected in draw another start alongside of Aron Baynes during Sunday’s game versus the Hornets.

    Saric is starting in favor of Deandre Ayton, but Ayton still led the frontcourt with 30 minutes during Friday’s game. This is the buy-low window for Ayton if any owners are in panic.

    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.

    Recently demoted Dario Saric came off the bench for 18 minutes and produced five points (2-for-6 FGs), four rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in a home loss to the Kings on Tuesday.

    Saric shouldn't be on any 12-team leagues right now, but his increase in minutes from his previous two bench games is notable (under 10 minutes in those two combined). If Saric can carve out more than 20 minutes per game then he might be able to help fantasy teams from time to time.

    Dario Saric logged four minutes in Friday's home win over the Knicks.

    Saric played the least of any Sun who saw the floor tonight and until the team punts on their new double-center starting lineup, it looks like The Homie can hit the wire in most formats.

    Dario Saric played just 14 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Lakers and put up a forgettable performance with four points, one rebound and one assist.

    Saric is losing time to Mikal Bridges, who saw 25 minutes off the bench and produced four points on 2-of-5 shooting with seven rebounds, one assist and one block. Bridges is worth keeping in 14-teamers, while Saric just fell off the edge of the Drop Zone.

    Dario Saric logged 21 minutes and missed all seven of his shots to finish with zero points, two boards, two assists and one steal in Saturday's win over the Kings.

    Saric hasn't been productive for a long while but he continues to decline and that's a bit surprising considering where he was a few seasons ago. You can watch this action from the wire.

  • Deandre Ayton

    Deandre Ayton will not play in Friday's matchup vs. the Warriors as he continues to recover from a sprained right ankle.

    Ayton was able to increase his workload in practice on Thursday but will miss his fourth consecutive game with an ankle sprain. He has been great when he has played this season but has only played in two games. His next opportunity to take the floor will come on Saturday against the Kings. Aron Baynes and Dario Šarić will see additional opportunity on Friday with Ayton ruled out.

    Head coach Monty Williams told the media that Deandre Ayton was able to do more in practice on Thursday than he did on Tuesday but should be considered day-to-day as he continues to nurse a sprained right ankle.

    Ayton has only played in two games so far this season as he was suspended for 25 games earlier in the season and has now missed three games with an ankle sprain. It appears that the Suns are being cautious with their former No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 draft as coach Williams also said that it is "not something you want to linger for the rest of the year." Continue to monitor his status for Friday's game against the Warriors but consider him questionable until more news surfaces. Aron Baynes and Dario Šarić should continue to see additional opportunity if Ayton is forced to miss another contest.

    Dario Saric played well in 17 minutes of action on Monday, scoring 13 points on 6-of-11 shooting to go with six rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer.

    Saric had an efficient night scoring the ball, but only logged 17 minutes as Cameron Johnson (19 minutes, 11 points, seven rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers) and Frank Kaminsky (18 minutes, 13 points, three rebounds and two triples) all produced in their limited spurts too. Nights like this will be pretty rare and we're going to stay away from most of these players.

    Dario Saric (right leg soreness) will be available for Monday's game against the Nuggets.

    Saric has been starting with Deandre Ayton out, but those days may be numbered. In the meantime, he's a decent source of points and rebounds.

    Dario Saric is listed as probable to face the Nuggets on Monday as he recovers from right leg soreness.

    Saric played through the issue on Saturday for 10 points and five rebounds over 19 minutes. Deandre Ayton will be missing another game so Saric has late-round value for the time being, but he has never been able to improve upon that production, and things are only going to get bleaker once Ayton returns.

    Dario Saric scored 10 points with five rebounds in 19 minutes on Saturday.

    Saric was questionable heading into Saturday with right leg soreness but was able to give it a go and put up a lackluster stat line. Maybe his minutes were limited because of his injury, but it's not a great sign that Saric only saw 19 minutes with Deandre Ayton (right ankle sprain) out. Saric is ranked 101 in per game 9-cat value on the season, but that could trend down quickly when Ayton returns. Saric is a late-round option while Ayton is sidelined, but could become a drop candidate quickly once Ayton is back to full minutes.

    Dario Saric (right leg soreness) is available for the Suns on Saturday.

    Saric should be in the starting lineup and will remain as a low-end option as a stretch four, both in real-life and fantasy.

    Dario Saric (right leg soreness) gets the questionable tag ahead of Saturday's game against the Rockets.

    Saric has been playing through the questionable tag related to his back soreness for weeks but this is a new injury so make sure to check back for confimration. He had a decent line on Friday with 16 points, six rebounds, four assists, four triples and one steal, shooting 60.0 percent from the field with around top-100 standard league value on the season. Cameron Johnson and Kelly Oubre should see a decent amount of power forward minutes if Saric cannot go.
