    PG-SG, Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson will sit out the Suns' preseason finale against the Nuggets on Monday due to right knee soreness.

    Johnson did take the floor on Saturday without any issues, so this may be the result of the Suns' choosing to have Johnson skip a meaningless preseason finale as he recovers from last year's right knee surgery. Either way, Johnson is pretty far down the Suns' depth chart, and it is unlikely he will have any standard league relevance this season.

    Tyler Johnson (migraine) scored 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting adding three rebounds and two assists in Saturday's win against the Blazers.

    With Devin Booker out the Suns went with Mikal Bridges over Johnson in Saturday's game. Johnson and Bridges ended up playing roughly the same amount of minutes and did the same amount of damage on the box score. It appears, however, that Johnson is the sixth-man that the Suns want coming off the bench and will continue in the role unless the injuries pile up.

    Tyler Johnson (migraine) will play in Saturday's preseason game versus the Blazers.

    Johnson missed Thursday's game with the migraine but is good to go for tonight. Johnson should have an increased role with Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton and Ricky Rubio resting.

    Tyler Johnson (migraine) is listed as probable on the NBA.com injury report for Saturday's preseason game against the Blazers.

    Johnson has been operating as Devin Booker's backup so far this preseason and has openly expressed his preference for playing on the wing rather than playing point guard. He is embracing an off-the-bench role but it is unclear if he will be able to get enough minutes to get within the top-150 value range so it may be best to avoid drafting him in standard 12-man leagues for now.

    Tyler Johnson will miss Thursday's game with a migraine.

    Johnson will sit out this game because it doesn't matter and migraines are annoying. We'll see him later in the preseason but it shouldn't matter too much for fantasy purposes.

    Tyler Johnson (migraine) is questionable for Thursday's preseason matchup vs. the Kings.

    Johnson will likely miss the game if he is still suffering from migraine symptoms close to tip-off given that these games don't matter. Look elsewhere for your DFS lineups.

  • Ty Jerome
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Ty Jerome led the Suns' reserve guards in a win over the Wolves on Tuesday as he dished out four assists and missed just one of his seven shots, good for 12 points in 23 minutes.

    The Suns have a ton of backup guards, and the next best after Jerome was Elie Okobo with 13 points (6-of-8 FGs) in 13 minutes. Jevon Carter predictably had three steals in 20 minutes, and Tyler Johnson had nothing but four missed shots and a steal in 15 minutes. Once the starters are playing starters' minutes, it's going to be nearly impossible for any of these reserve players to get enough action to be fantasy considerations.

    Tyler Johnson has exercised his $19.25 million player option to return to the Suns next season.

    This was the obvious move, as there was no way Johnson was getting anything close to this on the open market while recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. Zach Lowe reported that the Suns will make Johnson available on the trade market, but there may not be many teams lining up at that price. Phoenix will have a better shot at moving him during the season as needs change and Johnson proves that he's fully recovered.

    Zach Lowe writes that Tyler Johnson could be made available if he opts into his player option for next season.

    The Suns appear set to either draft a point guard or acquire an established one, which would make Johnson a bit of a luxury. He's coming off arthroscopic knee surgery and is owed $19.2 million next season — spoiler alert: he's not passing that up — so it might not be a huge market, but the Suns figure to be active in trade talks in the coming weeks. A deal like Johnson's might not be movable until the season begins, however.

    Tyler Johnson sat out the final game against the Mavs on Tuesday with a knee injury.

    Johnson had a decent streak of games in Phoenix, but overall his impact was limited as he isn't a consistent shooter. The Suns made a headscratching move trading for him and he's clearly not the answer at point guard but if he logs 30 minutes a night, then he has streaming appeal. Otherwise, he's too inconsistent to rely on as he finishes the year outisde the top-150 in value on every measure.

    Tyler Johnson (arthroscopic knee surgery) will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on Thursday.

    The Suns are a mess right now. Look for Elie Okobo, De'Anthony Melton, Troy Daniels and Jimmer Fredette to get all the run at the guard spots with whoever has the hot hand getting the most minutes that night. Stream each at your own discretion.

    The Suns are listing Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) as out for Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz.

    It's still unclear if Johnson will return this season, but the Suns continue to evaluate his status each game. Elie Okobo started the last game at PG, while De'Anthony Melton was a DNP.

    Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) will miss his ninth consecutive game on Monday.

    It's unclear if Johnson will be able to return this season or not. While he's out, De'Anthony Melton will continue starting at point guard.
