    Devin Booker (hand), T.J. Warren (knee), Elfrid Payton (knee) and Troy Daniels (ankle) will all miss Friday’s game vs. the Pelicans.

    Tyler Ulis will get the start and has been playing well recently, as has Marquese Chriss. Both, however, are a little risky to use as Phoenix is extremely shorthanded and if they get blown out early, coach Triano might empty the bench to get guys like Alan Williams and Shaquille Harrison more run.

    Alan Williams has officially been ruled out for Friday's game against New Orleans.

    The rest of the injured players – Devin Booker, Elfrid Payton, T.J. Warren, and Troy Daniels – were all officially listed as questionable but Suns coach Jay Triano made it sound like they would be out as well. The Suns will be shorthanded vs. the Pelicans.

  • Elfrid Payton
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Elfrid Payton and Troy Daniels are unlikely to play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

    Payton has been dealing with his knee tendonitis for about ten days now and it has caused him to miss four games. Troy Daniels left Tuesday's game early and did not return with an ankle injury and now looks doubtful for Friday. The Suns will be extremely thin at guard as Devin Booker will also be out. Tyler Ulis is locked into a big workload while Shaq Harrison, Davon Reed, and Danuel House will get some run also.

    Troy Daniels (sprained ankle) will not return to Tuesday's game.

    With Daniels out the Suns will look to Davon Reed and Danuel House Jr. to handle most of the work at shooting guard. Deep leaguers can keep an eye on them but this battle won't affect a thing in most fantasy leagues.

  • Devin Booker

    Devin Booker (hand) is currently being listed as out for Sunday's game, which would be his eighth consecutive absence.

    T.J. Warren has missed six in a row with left knee inflammation and will also be out tomorrow. Booker was able to get in a light practice earlier this week so he could return at some point whereas there's been no updates on Warren's condition. Troy Daniels and Josh Jackson will continue to benefit, with Daniels a 3-point specialist and low-end scoring option and Jackson a must-add player as long as you're not worried about your percentages.

    Troy Daniels hit seven 3-pointers in the Suns' loss to the Rockets on Friday night, scoring 23 points and adding four rebounds.

    Of all the Suns performing well lately, Daniels is the guy to add as he's been a 3-point monster the last two weeks in the absence of Devin Booker. He's now hit 32 treys in the last seven games with this being his third game with six 3-pointers or more during this stretch. As long as Booker stays out, Daniels is an excellent target for scoring and 3-point volume.

    Troy Daniels (ankle) has returned to Friday's game against the Rockets.

    Phew! More 3s incoming.

    Troy Daniels rolled his ankle and went to the locker room on Friday.

    It didn’t look too bad. We’ll let you know if he returns.

  • Devin Booker
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    Devin Booker (hand) has been ruled out of Friday's game against the Rockets.

    Booker was able to get in a light practice yesterday, which is a step up from his typical activity. The Suns are hoping that some full days off (as opposed to warmups and GTDs) can get his hand healthy again. He's still worth holding if you're not in urgent need, but is running out of time to make a difference for fantasy owners in the home stretch. Troy Daniels will continue to start and makes for a nice source of threes while rookie Davon Reed has been getting a little longer look off the bench.

  • Devin Booker
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    Devin Booker (hand) was able to practice lightly on Thursday and is listed as questionable for Friday.

    Booker has been a straight "out" for two games after being a game-time call after initially sustaining his hand injury. It looks like the full days of rest did him some good and he may be able to return against the Rockets. Whenever he does return, Troy Daniels will take a big hit and guys like Tyler Ulis and Shaq Harrison may feel the squeeze as well. The Suns are tanking but Booker plays a ton whenever he's active, so you shouldn't have to worry much as long as he suits up.

    Troy Daniels scored 15 points with four triples in another start at shooting guard on Wednesday night.

    Daniels is capable of this line every single night as long as Devin Booker remains out. Give him a look for a boost in scoring and threes if he's available.

  • Devin Booker
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    Devin Booker (hand) and T.J. Warren (knee) have both been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

    While we haven't heard much of anything on Warren, Booker seems to be trending in the wrong direction. Previously he was a game-time decision and would go through pregame warmups but he sat Sunday's game without an attempt in hopes of getting his hand healthy for Monday. That didn't work and now he's being confirmed out in afternoon media sessions. He's still a hold if you can stomach it but you may not have a choice if your playoff matchup is in the balance. Troy Daniels will continue to start and is a great 3-point specialist while Josh Jackson is a must-own player (unless you're playing for percentages) in Warren's place.

    Troy Daniels scored 18 points on 6-of-16 shooting with six rebounds against the Celtics on Monday.

    Daniels only connected on his 3-point shots tonight and he makes for a strong streaming play for owners in need of triples. He's always been a threat from deep and if Devin Booker and T.J. Warren miss more time, it'll vault Daniels into elite territory for 3s.

  • Devin Booker
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    Jay Triano said that Devin Booker is "very questionable" to face the Celtics on Monday night.

    That's "very not helpful" but it does point to Booker sitting another one out. He had been participating in warmups as a game-time decision but Phoenix didn't bother in their last game, calling him doubtful and ruling him out before warmups even began. The hope was that a full night of rest could help get his hand back to 100 percent health but it could take a little more time until Booker can return. He's still a hold, as the Suns give him huge minutes whenever he does play — he's not one of those players that only makes token appearances to skirt scrutiny from the league. Troy Daniels, Tyler Ulis and Davon Reed will all continue to see extra time with Daniels working as the starter.
