  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) has been ruled out of Monday's game vs. the Jazz.

    Johnson has missed his last five games and it looks like he'll be missing a sixth as well. Devin Booker has been the starting point guard in his absence and De'Anthony Melton will continue to get an uptick in minutes and production as long as Johnson is sidelined.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) will not play against the Kings on Sunday.

    Johnson will miss his fifth consecutive game as Devin Booker will continue operating as the team's starting point guard. De'Anthony Melton has seen an increase in playing over over the last three with 24.0 minutes per game which is not quite enough for standard fantasy league value.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) is questionable to play the Kings on Saturday.

    If Johnson can’t go, De’Anthony Melton should get another start. Melton has a high steals rate, but his upside is severely capped starting alongside usage monster Devin Booker.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) has been ruled out ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Pistons.

    Johnson was doubtful in the afternoon report but has already been downgraded. De'Anthony Melton, Josh Jackson and Mikal Bridges are going to be busy with the Suns' wing rotation opening up. Bridges is the best add, with Jackson permissible if you don't care about percentages and Melton a steals option. Johnson doesn't need to be held in 12-team leagues at this point.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) is doubtful to play against the Pistons on Thursday.

    De'Anthony Melton should start again and is worth a look in deeper leagues for owners who need steals with a few rebounds and assists to boot. Along with Johnson, Kelly Oubre is also doubtful for Thursday, making Josh Jackson and Mikal Bridges even more tempting as we gain more clairty on these situations.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Bulls.

    Johnson will miss his third consecutive game. De'Anthony Melton should start again and is a nice option for steals, while Josh Jackson and Troy Daniels should also see more minutes as the wing rotation gets shuffled around a bit. Johnson is a late-round player when healthy, so if you have to move on for another option you can go ahead and make that transaction.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) and Richaun Holmes (right quad strain) both remain questionable to play vs. Chicago on Monday.

    Johnson missed Saturday's and Friday's games and the Suns don't have much to play for this season so it'd be hard to put much weight in starting him in weekly leagues unless we hear good news leading into next week.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) has been ruled out of Saturday's game.

    Johnson was initially questionable but has been ruled out well ahead of tipoff, which isn't a great sign. Troy Daniels started in Johnson's place last night and is worth a look in deep leagues for some threes, but has extremely limited utility otherwise. Hopefully the Suns give some minutes to their young point guards as both De'Anthony Melton and Elie Okobo received DNPs on Friday.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) is questionable for Saturday's matchup with the Pelicans.

    Johnson sat out on Friday night, which allowed Troy Daniels to start in his place. Curiously, neither De'Anthony Melton nor Elie Okobo left the bench despite the Suns missing their starting point guard, so despite some potential there's no reason to look at those rookies if Johnson sits again today. Daniels is a 3-point specialist in deeper formats, while Johnson isn't a must-hold given his late-round status and the need for immediate production in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Josh Jackson - F - Phoenix Suns

    Josh Jackson is listed as the probable starter on Friday vs. the Rockets in place of Tyler Johnson (sore right knee).

    Jackson is an option as a stream in points leagues or a DFS play as long as Johnson is out of action.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) has been ruled out of Friday's game against the Rockets.

    Johnson has officially been deemed out for this one, so we should see a heavier dose of De'Anthony Melton and Josh Jackson, who could be interesting plays in daily formats. Johnson should continue to have some late-round appeal when he's playing but the upside is limited.

    Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) is questionable to play on Friday against the Rockets.

    Johnson has been inconsistent since joining the Suns but has a home in most standard leagues given the volume of minutes he's been receiving (31.2). His absence tomorrow would likely result in more time for De'Anthony Melton and Josh Jackson, among others. Check back for another update.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson put up 10 points with four rebounds and five assists on 2-of-9 shooting in 35 minutes of action in a win over the Warriors on Sunday.

    He is a late-round value with the Suns, but do not expect consistency if you own him. He got outplayed in this one by Mikal Bridges, who had 10 points and three steals on 3-of-4 shooting. Bridges is a top-100 value on the season and has played even better with TJ Warren sidelined.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson scored 14 points on 4-of-11 shooting (1-of-4 3PTs, 5-of-6 FTs) with seven rebounds, seven assists and one block over 32 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Blazers.

    Johnson has been a bit up and down but he's more or less a late-round value with some upside in his current 30-31 mpg role.

  • Elie Okobo - G - Phoenix Suns

    Rookie Elie Okobo has been assigned to the Suns’ G-League squad.

    With De’Anthony Melton returning from injury and Tyler Johnson entrenched as the starter, the Suns want Okobo to get more reps with their developmental team. There’s no fantasy relevance here.
