Elie Okobo

Fantasy News

  • Cameron Johnson
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    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.

    Elie Okobo (right ankle sprain) is available to play vs. the Jazz on Monday.

    Okobo has been inconsistent all season. He's only worth a look in the deepest of leagues.

  • Deandre Ayton
    C, Phoenix Suns

    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.

    Elie Okobo (left ankle sprain) is probable for Friday's game.

    Okobo was injured in Phoenix's last game before the break but was able to play through it so this is no surprise. He's not on the fantasy radar.

    Elie Okobo had to be helped to the locker room on Wednesday but returned to the game shortly after.

    Okobo wasn't in the locker room for long and looks to be fine after checking back in. Okobo is only on the radar in deeper leagues.

    Elie Okobo took a hard fall on Wednesday and was grabbing his ankle before heading to the locker room.

    Okobo had to be helped to the locker room and Ty Jerome entered the game for him. Okobo and Jerome don't have value outside of very deep leagues.

  • Luke Kennard
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Suns and Pistons have been discussing a Luke Kennard deal that could include Jevon Carter, Elie Okobo and a first-round pick.

    Since Kennard has been out for a month and a half, this rumored package wouldn't be freeing up any Pistons players, but instead adding a few more guards. And Kennard wouldn't likely have any more opportunity with the crowded wing situation in Phoenix.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio (right ankle soreness) will start Monday's game.

    He was already considered probable despite missing Sunday's contest. Elie Okobo will return to a diminished role. Rubio's 8.8 assists per game rank third in the NBA.

    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Elie Okobo played 26 minutes on Sunday, posting two points, four assists and a steal.

    Okobo only got the work because Ricky Rubio and Ty Jerome were out, and Jevon Carter ended up being the better play anyway. Carter had 15 points, four rebounds, two assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes and is the guy to roll with if Rubio remains out moving forward.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio (right ankle soreness) will not play on Sunday against the Bucks.

    It's not great news, though Rubio has been able to play through his ankle injury all week. Elie Okobo will start in his place and might be worth a shot as a DFS dart on today's small slate. Hopefully the Suns have a positive update on Rubio postgame, otherwise he'll make for a tough call in next week's lineups.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio (right ankle) went through Tuesday's shootaround, but he remains questionable to play in Tuesday's game against the Mavs.

    Rubio has really struggled over his past three games with averages of just 7.7 points, 2.7 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 1.3 steals, and 0.7 triples on 32 percent shooting from the field. If Rubio can't go Elie Okobo and Mikal Bridges would be looking at a bump in minutes, while Devin Booker takes on more ball-handling duties.

    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio (right ankle) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Elie Okobo and Mikal Bridges are likely to see bumps in usage if Rubio is unavailable. Rubio went just 1-of-10 from the field on Sunday but ranks fourth in the league with 8.8 assists per game.

  • Elie Okobo
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Elie Okobo saw 27 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, turning in a line of 11 points, five rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block.

    This game wasn't close, which could have afforded Okobo a few extra reps. It's an encouraging sign to see what he did with it, but he is likely only worth a stream at most if the Suns fall victim to injuries.

  • Elie Okobo
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Elie Okobo drew the start for Ricky Rubio on Tuesday, coming away with three rebounds, three assists and an 0-for-4 shooting line in 22 minutes.

    Rubio is away for the birth of his child and might miss a little more time, but this should be all you need to tell that Okobo is only a dart throw and shouldn't be expected to return more than assists for deep-league GMs. Tyler Johnson had four points on 1-of-7 shooting in 15 minutes while Jevon Carter played only six minutes. Avoid this mess.

  • Elie Okobo
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Elie Okobo will start at PG in Tuesday's game against the Hawks.

    Monty Williams hinted at this to be true when he said Ricky Rubio was still away from the team, and now we get confirmation. Okobo is in a sweet spot to provide streaming value, but it should be noted that Tyler Johnson, Jevon Carter and Mikal Bridges could all see a few extra minutes while Devin Booker takes over playmaking duties.
