Ty Jerome

Fantasy News

  • Cameron Payne
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Cameron Payne had a solid showing off the bench in Thursday's scrimmage win, posting 11 points (5-of-7 FG), five rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 17 minutes.

    Payne inked a two-year deal with the Suns during the NBA hiatus, and while Phoenix has a stacked backcourt depth chart, he'll be trying to make his case in the Orlando bubble period. Keep in mind that Ricky Rubio and Elie Okobo did not play tonight, clearing the path for Payne to get minutes. He's unlikely to hold any fantasy value. He did manage to outplay fill-in starter Ty Jerome, who had eight points, three assists and a steal on 3-of-9 shooting.

    Ty Jerome will get the spot-start in the team’s first scrimmage on Thursday vs. the Jazz.

    Jerome is starting in place of Ricky Rubio, who joined the team late after testing positive for Covid-19. Jerome was hampered by injuries during the shortened-season so hopefully he used the time off in order to get his body healthy and ready for NBA games. It is unlikely that Jerome sees enough minutes to produce fantasy value worthy of resumption-league rosters, but crazier things have happened in the “silly season.”

    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ty Jerome had a difficult rookie year with the Suns, struggling for minutes and dealing with injuries limited him to 28 games and top-393/395 per-game value (8-cat/9-cat).

    Jerome averaged 11.2 mpg, during which he produced 3.5 PTS, 1.5 ASTS, 1.5 REBS, 0.5 3PTS and 0.5 STLS on .349 shooting from the field. The expectations were not high for Jerome's first season, and he is still expected to be near the bottom of the Suns' depth chart next season.

    Ty Jerome (left calf strain) managed to fight through a doubtful tag to play seven minutes on Friday, adding one assist.

    Jerome came into the game when it was well in hand for Phoenix, which probably explains why they decided to play him despite the doubtful tag. Everything went right for Phoenix and it would have to keep going that way for Jerome to get consistent minutes.

    Rookie Ty Jerome (left calf soreness) has been listed as out ahead of Friday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Jerome still isn't ready to make his return. He's missed three games thus far with this calf injury he has been dealing with.

  • Cameron Johnson
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Cam Johnson (bruised quad) and Ty Jerome (left calf soreness) have both been upgraded to doubtful ahead of Friday's tilt vs. the Rockets.

    This is an indication that both Ty and Cam are close to a return even if they miss Friday's game. Neither are valuable enough for standard leagues but Johnson's return could negatively impact Mikal Bridges. Continue to monitor the news ahead of tip-off for confirmation.

  • Dario Saric
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Dario Saric (ankle), Aron Baynes (hip), Frank Kaminsky (knee), Cam Johnson (quad), Tyler Johnson knee() and Ty Jerome (calf) are all being listed out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Pistons.

    Saric was been ruled out through Thursday over the weekend, and Mikal Bridges has taken his spot in the starting lineup. Bridges has been a top 45/55 value in 9/8 cat leagues over the past month and he deserves a spot on all rosters for his diverse skill set.

  • Tyler Johnson
    PG-SG, Phoenix Suns

    Neither Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) nor Ty Jerome (left calf soreness) will not play on Monday.

    Johnson briefly left Friday's game and played on Sunday, but the injury is apparently not healing as hoped. Jerome was unable to play on Sunday at all. Their absences will open up more minutes for Elie Okobo and Jevon Carter to work.

    Ty Jerome (left calf soreness) will not play on Sunday.

    Jerome is missing a chance to produce with Ricky Rubio out. It's been slow going for the first-round pick but he's always been more of a dynasty player, anyway.

  • Elie Okobo
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Elie Okobo started on Saturday and scored 17 points with four rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes.

    Okobo got the start with Ricky Rubio (illness) sidelined. If Rubio misses the next game on Monday, Okobo could be worth streaming as he saw more minutes than both Ty Jerome (15 points in 22 minutes) and Tyler Johnson (three points in 15 minutes). Okobo should return to the waiver wire once Rubio returns.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio (illness) is doubtful to play against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Although the Suns have lost five straight games, Rubio has been racking up the assists lately, averaging 11.5 over his last 10 games. It is unclear who benefits the most if Rubio sits with Ellie Okobo, Ty Jerome and Jevon Carter all playing similar minutes lately. Tyler Johnson who picked up a DNP after coming back from injury last game, may also get back into the rotation.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ricky Rubio had a rough one on Tuesday night, going 2-of-12 from the field and finishing with four points, five rebounds and eight assists in 24 minutes.

    The Suns got blotted out tonight so most players had issues, but Rubio had more struggles than most. Jevon Carter had nine points and a steal in 24 minutes, Elie Okobo had 10 points, four dimes and two steals in 24 minutes and Ty Jerome had 10 points, three assists and two swipes in 19 minutes. They all figure to return to irrelevance when Devin Booker returns. Expect better from Rubio next time out.

  • Cameron Johnson
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Cameron Johnson (hip soreness) will miss Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Johnson is one of three guards missing tonight. It's a good thing the Suns have far too many guards as it is. Look for Mikal Bridges to take up some slack in addition to some combination of Elie Okobo, Jevon Carter and Ty Jerome.

    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ty Jerome is probable with a right ankle sprain for Saturday's game against the Rockets.

    Jerome is an interesting prospect but is still raw by fantasy standards. In dynasty formats he has some promise but is just on the edge of streaming options in deeper leagues for now.

  • Ty Jerome
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ty Jerome (right ankle sprain) made an immediate impact in his NBA debut, going for four points on 2-of-4 shooting, three boards, four dimes, and three swipes in 12 minutes on Monday vs. the Hornets.

    Seemingly half of the Suns roster can play point guard, so there aren't a lot of minutes available for Jerome at the position right now. However, the Suns have been high on him and he's worth a stash in dynasty leagues.
