Elie Okobo

Fantasy News

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Monty Williams informed the media that despite being upgraded to questionable for Tuesday's matchup against the Sixers, Aron Baynes (right knee contusion) and Elie Okobo (right ankle sprain) are unlikely to play as Williams will stay with the same rotation.

    Okobo was unlikely to play regardless as he is very low on the totem pole in the backcourt. Baynes could have seen some minutes off the bench but it appears like the Suns will stick with Deandre Ayton, Dario Šarić, Frank Kaminsky and Cheick Diallo in the frontcourt.

    Both Aron Baynes (right knee contusion) and Elie Okobo (right ankle sprain) have both been upgraded from out to questionable ahead of Tuesday's must-win game over the Sixers while Kelly Oubre Jr. (right knee rehab) remains doubtful.

    It is a big step in the right direction for both Baynes and Okobo as they have not had the questionable tag heading into game-day for quite some time. Baynes has an opportunity to see some back-up center minutes as soon as he is ready to go while Okobo will struggle to crack the rotation. Neither make for a good fantasy play right out of the gates and we should get an update prior to the 1:30 PM PST tip-off.

  • Kelly Oubre Jr.
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    The Suns are sticking with their usual injury report for Monday's game: Kelly Oubre (right knee) is doubtful while Aron Baynes (right knee contusion) and Elie Okobo (right ankle sprain) are out.

    The Suns are certainly missing Oubre and Baynes but you wouldn't know it based on their perfect record in the bubble. The team is playing some inspired ball and there's no reason to rush any of these players back when everything's clicking. If Phoenix can complete the miracle comeback and get into the postseason, Oubre and Baynes would be a big lift, but we wouldn't count on them for production in the final games of the fantasy season.

    Elie Okobo will not appear in Saturday's game against the Heat as he is nursing a right ankle sprain.

    Okobo has not appeared in an official restart game to date and is quickly running out of time to do so. His value is awfully limited so it makes little sense to have him on any rosters.

    Elie Okobo is listed as out prior to Thursday's game against the Pacers with a right ankle sprain.

    Okobo was barely seeing playing time prior to his injury and this is just the final nail in the coffin for any potential value he had.

    Elie Okobo managed just six points, one assist and one steal in 14 minutes during Tuesday's 117-106 victory over the Raptors.

    Okobo saw his first action of the resumption after his late arrival into the Orlando bubble. Despite just one practice session, Okobo entered the rotation and looked to be in sync with his teammates. He is going to be battling for backup minutes on most nights and is unlikely to move the fantasy needle all too much.

    Elie Okobo may play in Tuesday's scrimmage, though he'll get limited minutes if he does.

    Okobo was late to Orlando for personal reasons and has only been through one practice, but the Suns clearly want to get the young guard some minutes so he can be ready for the NBA restart. He's unlikely to have fantasy value, however, as the Suns boast a deep backcourt rotation.

    Elie Okobo practiced on Monday after a delayed arrival in Orlando due to personal reasons.

    Okobo arrived in Orlando on Sunday and was able to practice with the team on Monday. He is going to be battling for backup PG minutes and given what we have seen thus far from Okobo, there is little reason to think he will have any real fantasy value.

    As of Sunday, Elie Okobo (personal) has arrived in Orlando.

    Okobo will now need to quarantine and pass his physical tests but he should be ready for action in the next couple of days. After a personal matter kept him away from the team, he'll be looking to pick up backup PG minutes on a team with a deep backcourt group. There's minimal fantasy implications.

    Elie Okobo (personal) is currently on his way to Orlando.

    Okobo was not a factor in fantasy this season and will continue to battle plenty of guards for backup minutes behind Devin Booker and Rucky Rubio. The 2018 second-round pick can continue to be ignored in almost all formats.

    Elie Okobo and Jalen Lecque are currently not with the Suns in Orlando for personal reasons and are expected to join their teammates at a later date.

    It is positive news that these two youngsters are not away from the team due to Covid-19 unlike their teammate, Aron Baynes. Okobo was a part of the rotation before the league suspension while Lecque spent most of his rookie campaign in the G League. Neither are recommended in fantasy circles for the league resumption.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Duane Rankin of AZ Central reports that Ricky Rubio, Aron Baynes, Elie Okobo and Jalen Lecque did not travel with the rest of the Suns to Orlando and have yet to practice with the team at Disney World.

    The four players have not been seen in any of the Suns' footage from Orlando and have not held any Zoom calls with media. When the Suns shut their facilities it was announced that two players tested positive for COVID-19, and it's unclear if this is the result of more positive tests or something else. At this point they'll miss at least one of Phoenix's scrimmage games, and the longer it takes to get them to Orlando, the more their rest-of-season availability looks doubtful.

    Elie Okobo appeared in 54 games before the stoppage in play, during which he averaged 13.1mpg and was a top-385/386 per game player (8-cat/9-cat).

    Okobo saw his playing time drecase from 18.1 mpg in his second season in Phoenix, and it was worrying to see his free-throw percentage decline to .687. In terms of fantasy, Okobo has little going for him at this point from a fantasy perspective, and it'll be interesting to see if the Suns pick up his non-guranteed option next season.

  • 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.
