  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    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.

    Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) has been ruled out of Saturday’s game vs. the Grizzlies.

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

    Johnson might be done for the season and can be dropped in just about all formats at this point. De'Anthony Melton and Troy Daniels will continue to see additional minutes off the bench, with both capable of deep-league value for steals and threes, respectively.

    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 (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 (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 (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 (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 (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.
