    Deandre Ayton (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Blazers.

    Ayton has missed the Suns' previous two games (home games on Friday and Sunday against the Blazers and Bucks) and will not be able to make his return on Tuesday night for another clash with the Blazers. He went through shootaround and there was some thought he could see some action tonight but no such luck. Aron Baynes will look to continue his run of great play in Ayton's absence. Ayton himself should be good to go for the Suns' next game on Saturday against the Mavs.

    Deandre Ayton (left ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable to return for Tuesday's game against the Blazers.

    Ayton went through shootaround and is hopeful to return for this one, with heavy playoff implications. If Ayton can go, Aron Baynes is going to see a huge dent in value after having a career two-game stretch in Ayton's absence.

    Deandre Ayton (left ankle sprain) was a full participant in Tuesday's shootaround and is hopeful to be cleared to play against the Blazers.

    Aron Baynes has had a career-best two-game stretch with Ayton out the past two games but is sure to take a massive hit once Ayton is cleared to return. The Suns and Blazers are fighting to stay alive for the final spot out west, so we would expect to see Ayton active for this one.

    Deandre Ayton (left ankle sprain) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Blazers.

    Ayton has missed the past two games with the injury but is looking close to a return. Aron Baynes will take a big hit when Ayton returns and will lose his short run of standard-league value. The Suns only play twice this week, so it is probably worth streaming a roster spot than holding Baynes with Ayton being listed questionable.

    Deandre Ayton (left ankle sprain) is being listed as out ahead of Sunday's game.

    There had been hope that Ayton would return tomorrow so it's still possible that we get a change of course, but ultimately it makes the most sense for Phoenix to play it safe here. Aron Baynes remains a solid choice while Ayton is shelved, though it sounds like the sophomore could be back in action relatively soon.

    The Suns are hopeful that Deandre Ayton (left ankle sprain) will return to the lineup on Sunday.

    Ayton was able to get some shots up at Saturday's light practice session, and we'll see what the update is tomorrow. It looked like Ayton would miss significant time with a nasty sprain but so far all indications are that he'll be returning in the relatively near future. Those of you who scooped up Aron Baynes may want to start planning out the next move, though hopefully you were able to take full advantage of his massive game last night.

    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.

    Deandre Ayton (left ankle sprain) is considered day-to-day and will be re-evaluated ahead of Friday's game with the Blazers.

    Despite leaving the arena on Tuesday with crutches, Ayton went through a no-contact practice yesterday and is technically doubtful for tonight's game. We would be truly stunned if he plays but it sounds like Ayton may not miss much more time. Just hope for more positive updates like this as we go.

    Deandre Ayton (left ankle sprain) is officially listed as doubtful ahead of Friday's matchup vs. the Blazers.

    Ayton went through non-contact practice on Thursday and appears to be a ways away from a return. However, the fact that he has not already been ruled out is encouraging. Aron Baynes should have ample opportunity while Ayton is sidelined and has streaming appeal in standard leagues. Continue to monitor for updates as Ayton will have hurdles to clear in practice before returning to the court.

    Deandre Ayton (left ankle sprain) went through practice on Thursday with no contact and has no timetable for his return.

    Ayton went through practice today with no contact. Coach Monty Williams does not believe Ayton's ankle injury is season ending, but would not offer a timetable for his return to the court. Aron Baynes recently returned from an injury himself, and would be in line to see an increased role in the meantime. Time to pick up Baynes again.

    Deandre Ayton (left ankle sprain) was seen in a walking boot and is unlikely to play on Friday.

    The Suns are waiting for his MRI results. Ayton was injured during Tuesday's contest and Aron Baynes should fill in while he is absent. He has posted averages of 19.0 points, 12.0 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks so far.

    Deandre Ayton (left ankle sprain) left Tuesday's game with an ankle injury in the process of fouling out late in the fourth quarter vs. the Raptors.

    Ayton was seen using crutches to get from the training room to his locker after the game, so there's a good chance he misses some time. The Suns don't take the floor again until Friday vs. the Blazers, but Ayton should be considered questionable at best until there is further information on the severity of his ankle injury. Aron Baynes sees to benefit the most in the event of an Ayton absence.

    Deandre Ayton (sore hip) was able to see 33 minutes and post 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting with nine rebounds, one steal and two blocks in a loss to the Warriors on Saturday.

    Ayton looked no worse for wear in this one and his hip did not appear to impair his ability to flirt with a double-double. The good news comes with a continued top-20 ROS outlook with the injury being a non-setback for the big man.

    Deandre Ayton (sore hip) is available and will start for the Suns on Saturday.

    Ayton has been cruising with top-20 value, so hopefully, his hip issue will not slow him down. His availability caps the appeal of Aron Baynes, who would have started had Ayton missed this game.

    Deandre Ayton (hip soreness) is questionable against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Ayton is putting up top-20 standard league value this season with production across the board minus the three-point shooting. Fantasy owners may be a little worried as this is a new injury and the playoffs are around the corner. Another update is sure to follow with Aron Baynes the likely candidate to replace Ayton in the starting lineup if he is held out.
