Jalen Lecque joined the rest of his teammates in Orlando before they return to action on Friday.
Lecque spent most of this season in the G League and only made four appearances for Phoenix throughout the year. He will have to quarantine before joining his teammates and his status for Friday's matchup against Washington is unknown. His return to the team puts the Suns' 15-man roster at full capacity heading into the final eight regular season games.

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.

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.

Jalen Lecque completed a lackluster rookie season that saw him spend the majority of his time struggling in the G League, while finishing as a top-481/480 per game player (9-cat/8-cat).
Lecque was an undrafted free agent, and remains quite raw following a year of seasoning in the G League. He has another year guaranteed with the Suns that he can spend developing further. In 23 G League games he averaged 13.4 PTS, 3.4 ASTS, 3.4 REBS and 0.8 3PTS on lousy percentages.

Jalen Lecque was recalled from the G League by the Suns on Monday.
Lecque hasn't made his NBA debut yet, and he's likely just guard depth while the Suns may be missing both Devin Booker (right forearm contusion) and Tyler Johnson (illness) tonight.

Jalen Lecque, an undrafted free agent, could see some action in the G League with the Northern Arizona Suns, but he’s shown in recent workouts the talent that made him a five-star recruit.
The Suns signed Lecque to a four-year deal with two years guaranteed. He saw action in the Summer League in Las Vegas, but he is clearly a project as the Suns have their starting point guard in veteran Ricky Rubio and capable backups in Tyler Johnson and Jevon Carter, let alone Elie Okobo. Keep him in your radar only in deep dynasty leagues.

Undrafted free agent guard Jalen Lecque agreed to a four-year deal with the Suns shortly after the 2019 NBA Draft.
Lecque is one of the most athletic players in this year's draft class but was raw enough to slide through the cracks. The Suns guaranteed two of his seasons so there's a decent chance he can stick around. We'll let you know if that happens.
