  • Tyler Johnson
    PG-SG, Free Agent

    The Lakers and the Clippers are both said to have interest in guard Tyler Johnson, according to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated.

    Johnson was waived by the Suns on Sunday and is now officially a free agent. He projects to have minimal fantasy value even if he is able to sign with one of the LA teams.

    PG-SG, Phoenix Suns

    The Suns waived Tyler Johnson on Sunday, and he is set to become an unrestricted free agent after clearing waivers.

    Johnson has had a rough season and is unlikely to be a factor in fantasy no matter where he ends up after clearing waivers. He is also dealing with right knee soreness at the moment and may need some time off before retaking the floor.

    Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Nuggets.

    Elie Okobo and Jevon Carter will handle the majority of the back up guard minutes.

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Aron Baynes (left hip soreness), Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) and Dario Šarić (left ankle sprain) have all been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Rockets.

    They join Frank Kaminsky (right patella stress fracture) as players that will not be in uniform on Friday. Baynes had a stretch of standard league relevance during Deandre Ayton's suspension but has lost significant value since Ayton's return. The Suns play next on Saturday vs. the Nuggets but consider them all quite doubtful for that game as well. With all of the injuries the Suns are facing, the main cogs (Ayton, Kelly Oubre Jr., Devin Booker, Ricky Rubio and Mikal Bridges) will carry the load on Friday.

  • 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.

  • Tyler Johnson
    PG-SG, Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) has been cleared to play on Sunday.

    Nothing to see here after Johnson was able to return to Friday's game despite leaving with a leg problem. The Suns are down two other PGs today so Johnson might get some additional run if you're looking for a streaming option.

    Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) is being listed as probable vs. the Bucks on Sunday.

    Ricky Rubio is questionable, so TyJo might be able to squeeze out a few back-up minutes. Elie Okobo will likely take a chunk of the PG time, should Rubio not make it.

    PG-SG, Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (leg) checked back into the closing moments of Friday's game.

    Our earlier analysis still holds: "Either way, the veteran hasn't been a fantasy factor in quite some time." Johnson posted nine points, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer in 15 minutes tonight but he's only worth a look in 20-teamers.

    PG-SG, Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (leg) went back to the locker room in the fourth quarter of Friday's game.

    The odds are against Johnson returning though that's more a factor of time than his health. Either way, the veteran hasn't been a fantasy factor in quite some time. If he can't return his night will end with nine points, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer in 15 minutes.

  • Elie Okobo
    PG, Phoenix Suns

    Elie Okobo drew the start for Ricky Rubio on Tuesday, coming away with three rebounds, three assists and an 0-for-4 shooting line in 22 minutes.

    Rubio is away for the birth of his child and might miss a little more time, but this should be all you need to tell that Okobo is only a dart throw and shouldn't be expected to return more than assists for deep-league GMs. Tyler Johnson had four points on 1-of-7 shooting in 15 minutes while Jevon Carter played only six minutes. Avoid this mess.

  • 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.

    Tyler Johnson (illness) will play on Friday against the Thunder.

    Well he'll be available — he may not play, as he's been in and out of the rotation of late. A former top-120 player, Johnson's really fallen off the map over the last couple of years.

    Tyler Johnson (illness) is probable to take on the Thunder on Friday.

    Johnson has seen more minutes as of late with the injury to Devin Booker (forearm). He will continue to be a part of the rotation but will lose several minutes if Booker, who is currently questionable, returns on Friday. He can be viewed as a low-end 3-and-D specialist who can produce fringe standard league value when he sees 30-plus minutes a night.

    Tyler Johnson (illness) won't play vs. the Clippers on Tuesday.

    Johnson has hardly played lately, so his absence only means that the other backup guards will continue to get extra minutes, especially with Devin Booker (right forearm contusion) and Cameron Johnson (left hip soreness) out.
