Davon Reed

  • Davon Reed
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    Davon Reed didn’t draw the start on Saturday but still managed to score a career-high 16 points against the Hornets, going 5-of-8 from the field and a perfect 4-of-4 from deep to go with six rebounds, two assists and a steal.

    Reed started the second half when Josh Jackson departed the Suns’ last game but returned to the bench for this one. It didn’t affect him, and he was part of an effective bench group that closed the gap severely. The Suns poured in 43 points in the final frame to get this game back down into single-digits after trailing by 22 after three. While Reed doesn’t have enough of a track record (this was his ninth career game), the Suns might be down their three main wings for the near-future. There are worse fliers to take at this point in the year.

  • Troy Daniels
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    With Devin Booker and T.J. Warren out on Saturday, the Suns will insert Shaq Harrison into the starting lineup at shooting guard and Troy Daniels at small forward.

    The Suns will go small with their depth on the wing gutted. Rookie Davon Reed started the second half in place of the injured Josh Jackson — who is also out today — in the team’s last game but will come off the bench against the Hornets. Daniels is worth adding for his 3-point potential while Harrison should get a few more touches. It also opens up the door for Tyler Ulis to re-enter the rotation, and with Booker and Warren potentially missing more time going forward it’s possible that all four of those guys hold value in fantasy formats of various depth. We’ll have to see exactly how things shake out today, but all of them should be on your radar.

  • T.J. Warren
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    The Suns have updated their injury report ahead of Saturday’s game, revealing that both T.J. Warren (back) and Josh Jackson (knee) will sit out.

    Warren was doubtful coming into the day so that’s no surprise. He was a late scratch with back spasms in Phoenix’s previous game and since those have a propensity to linger he could miss some more time. Usually that makes Jackson a surefire play except he is dealing with an unspecified knee injury. The Suns don’t have much depth at the small forward spot so they’ll have to cobble things together on the fly today. Davon Reed started the second half after Jackson left the team’s last game, while Troy Daniels could slide down to the three in smaller lineups. Jared Dudley could rejoin the rotation and move up to small forward in a pinch. If the Suns want to go small, it could open up more time for Shaq Harrison and maybe even Tyler Ulis as well.

  • Josh Jackson
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Josh Jackson (knee) is being listed as questionable for Saturday’s game.

    Jackson left Thursday’s game with a knee injury, and while an MRI came back negative the Suns might not want to push things with their prized rookie. With T.J. Warren even less likely to suit up than Jackson, it could be Davon Reed who starts at power forward. If Phoenix wants to shelter him a little bit they could turn to Jared Dudley for spot minutes, as well as any of their power forwards if they opted for big lineups. There’s really nobody outside of Reed left on the depth chart at small forward, however, so he’s shaping up as a solid streaming option.

  • T.J. Warren
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    T.J. Warren, who missed the Suns’ last game with an ailing back, is now being listed as doubtful for Saturday’s game.

    Warren has dealt with back problems on and off for the second half of the season and with the Suns having nothing to play for (or at least win for), you can bet they’ll be cautious here. Josh Jackson would make for a slam dunk play except he himself is also questionable. That means Danuel House could be pushed into action, while veteran Jared Dudley could also be dusted off. Davon Reed could even pick up time at the three. If the Suns really are as shorthanded as the injury report indicates, there’ll be┬ásome funky lineups and plenty of value out there for DFS players.

  • Devin Booker
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    Devin Booker is questionable for Saturday’s matchup with the Hornets because of a triceps strain.

    Booker has been scorching these past few weeks and his loss would be a huge blow. The Suns might not care, but fantasy owners certainly would. Unfortunately the Suns don’t have much of interest on the bench, though Troy Daniels would likely step into the starting five and should make for an excellent source of threes. Rookie Davon Reed may also see extra time, and point guards Shaquille Harrison and Tyler Ulis might even get a little extra playing time headed their way. Check back tomorrow for a status update on Booker.

  • Josh Jackson
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Josh Jackson is out for the rest of Thursday’s game with a left knee injury.

    It’s unclear how severe this injury is. Davon Reed started the second half in Jackson’s place, so if Jackson were to miss time, Reed might be a beneficiary of some bonus minutes. Stay tuned for more updates.

    The Suns have recalled Davon Reed from the G-League.

    Reed’s rookie season has been slowed by surgery for a torn meniscus but he’s looking to make a little noise down the stretch here. It’s not likely, but you never know with the state of the Phoenix roster. Reed is safe to ignore in fantasy, at least for now.
