The Suns have pieces, but can they ever get on the right track?

Troy Daniels (sprained left knee) did not practice on Tuesday and remains out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Warriors.
Daniels can get hot in a hurry from deep and has the chance to be a deep-league 3-point specialist if he can get back on the court.

A sprained left knee will keep Troy Daniels out of Saturday's preseason game.
Daniels' regular-season status is starting to come under question at this point, as a sprained knee isn't typically an injury that can just be brushed aside. He'll be a deep-league 3-point specialist if he can find his way into the rotation.

Troy Daniels (sprained left knee) did not play in Thursday's preseason game against the Nets.
Daniels can score in bunches but is unlikely to see enough time to make an impact in fantasy.

The Lakers have officially announced the signings of Jared Dudley and Troy Daniels.
Both players will slot in at the end of the Lakers' bench, with Dudley giving them some minutes as a stretch four and Daniels operating as a microwave scorer and floor-spacer when the team needs some extra shooting. There's no fantasy value to be found here.

Troy Daniels has agreed to a one-year, $2.1 million deal with the Lakers.
The Lakers are adding a proven shooter around LeBron James and Anthony Davis, which is just crazy enough to work. Jokes aside, Daniels shot .385 from deep on 3.8 attempts per game with the Suns last season and has not shot below 38 percent from 3-point range since the 2015 season — he's been over 40 percent three times. Moreover, this move has no cap impact. Still, Daniels shouldn't be expected to occupy a huge role in the rotation, so this remains more of a depth signing than anything. It's a nice start but the Lakers have a lot more work to do.

Troy Daniels went scoreless on Tuesday, shooting 0-for-3 and grabbing a steal against the Mavs.
He couldn't hit either of his 3-point attempts tonight which is unusual as that's his bread and butter. Daniels does one thing well and that's shoot triples. He finishes the season shooting .415 from the floor on 5.4 attempts but .385 from deep on 3.8 attempts. Over half of his attempts are from beyond the arc and his 1.5 3s gave him some streaming appeal as a streamer and he's found his role in the league as a 3-point specialist and finishes this season outside the top-300 in total value.

Troy Daniels played 24 minutes off the bench on Friday, scoring 14 points, four 3-pointers and a steal.
Devin Booker is done for the season which opens minutes up for Daniels who has some potential as a 3-point specialist for the last few games of the season. The sharpshooter has at least one triple in nine straight games including four with at least three.

Josh Jackson (right ankle sprain) is listed as questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies.
Jackson has missed the last three games with the ankle sprain and there’s a good chance he misses another. Mikal Bridges, Dragan Bender and even Troy Daniels stand to benefit.

Troy Daniels put up 15 points on five 3-pointers in a loss to the Wizards on Wednesday.
Daniels was the second-highest scorer on the Suns behind Devin Booker and his 50 points. He is merely a deep-league shooting specialist.

Troy Daniels drilled four triples on his way to 16 points in Saturday's loss to the Kings.
Daniels went 5-of-11 from the field in his 25 minutes and looks like he'll be a viable 3-point specialist option through the end of the year. He was out of the Suns rotation for much of the year but is back in the mix regularly, which gives streamers yet another option for triples in a league that's flush with deep shooting.

Josh Jackson (ankle sprain) is questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Kings.
It’s pretty amazing that Jackson hasn’t already been ruled out but it wouldn’t be surprising if he ended up missing this one. Mikal Bridges and Troy Daniels would be the prime beneficiaries with Bridges being the preferred play by far.

Troy Daniels started for Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) on Friday but was invisible with just three points, making 1-of-3 shots from deep, adding three assists and one steal in 15 minutes.
Daniels has been worth a deep-league play when given playing time. However, tonight was not one of those occasions. He's a marginal streamer for 3s in deep leagues while Johnson is out.

Troy Daniels scored 15 points with four 3-pointers, four rebounds and a steal in Friday's loss to the Pelicans.
Daniels logged another 17 minutes in this one and was once again surprisingly efficient going 5-for-9 from the field and 4-for-6 from downtown. He has made a name for himself as a theoretical scorer, but he's put together a few good games now. He doesn't hold any fantasy value though, as he's unlikely to get more than minutes in the teens if that.

Troy Daniels returned to the rotation on Wednesday night with six points, two triples and three steals in 15 minutes.
The Suns were down big and their bench group got some extra run as they slowly chipped away at the lead to make this one look competitive. Daniels is a 3-point streamer for deep leagues but has only appeared in four of the last 10 games. You can do better.
