News: Goodwin scored 29 points (11-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT) to go along with four rebounds and two steals in 31 minutes against Sacramento on Wednesday.
Impact: Goodwin had played just a single minute in all of April and hadn't made a field goal since March 23, but he took full advantage Wednesday with Phoenix not having anything to play for. It was a career-high as well as just the fourth time he scored in double-digits all year long.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Green will start at shooting guard Wednesday with Goran Dragic (ankle) sitting out, the Arizona Republic reports.
Impact: Green will start with the rest of the regular starters, with Dragic being the exception, but the Suns also plan to give their young players more minutes Wednesday with the team no longer in the playoff hunt, so there's no guarantee that Green will be a good play, even in daily leagues.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Dragic (ankle) will not play Wednesday, the Arizona Republic reports.
Impact: Dragic was playing through a sprained left ankle, but with the Suns eliminated from the playoff picture like a fading Michael J. Fox in Back to the Future, Gerald Green will start at shooting guard. The Suns plan on playing their young guys more than usual Wednesday, so Green, though starting, may not play a full complement of starter minutes.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Morris scored 21 points (10-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-3 FT) while adding three blocks and two rebounds in 28 minutes Monday.
Impact: Morris was the lone bright spot on the night that the Suns were eliminated from the playoffs. With only one game left on the schedule for Phoenix and nothing left to lose, it should be interesting to see how they disperse minutes in their finale. Morris will look finish his breakout season strong on Wednesday.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Len has played just two total minutes in the month of April.
Impact: Len has struggled to find relevancy during his rookie season. It's certainly not what he had hoped for, but a year of experience under his belt will definitely help his future progress. The Suns have two remaining games on the regular season schedule, and Len will likely have a hard time leaving the bench.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Randolph has averaged 1.7 points, 1.9 rebounds, 0.1 assists and 0.2 steals since being acquired by the Suns on Mar. 1.
Impact: Randolph has provided depth to the Suns' frontcourt but not much else. There are just two games remaining on the Suns' schedule, and he'll have a hard time making his presence known in either of those contests.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Smith has averaged 9.2 minutes on the court to go along with 1.7 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists during his past six games.
Impact: Smith maintains a spot in the rotation but has to come off the bench and play behind the likes of Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic. This doesn't bode well for Smith's production, as is evident from his past six games.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Goodwin has only managed to record one minute on the court during the month of April.
Impact: Goodwin is absolutely buried on the depth chart behind some talented players. He doesn't stand much of a chance to see significant run during the Suns' final two games, or their hopeful playoff push.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Christmas hasn't been able to record any minutes on the court during the month of April.
Impact: Christmas is one of the last guys to leave the Suns' bench on a given night. Unfortunately for him, this trend won't likely end anytime soon, especially since the Suns only have two more games remaining on their regular season schedule.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Dragic will start Monday, despite his ankle still being sore after taking the court Saturday, the Suns' official site reports. "It's not a whole lot better," coach Jeff Hornacek said of Dragic's ankle.
Impact: Dragic got treatment Sunday and Monday, but with the Suns desperate to win out in hopes of making the playoffs, Dragic will continue to play, as long as the Suns are not mathematically eliminated.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Green returned to the bench Saturday, scoring just nine points (2-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT) with seven rebounds and two steals in 27 minutes.
Impact: With Goran Dragic (ankle) back, Green returned to the sixth-man role and struggled to get things going. Nevertheless, Green still should get decent run off the bench, as the Suns push to secure a playoff spot. Over his last seven games, he's averaged 21.4 points with 3.3 three-pointers, continuing his elite three-point shooting from the entire season.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Dragic (ankle) returned to the starting lineup after a one-game absence, scoring 13 points (6-18 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-3 FT) with five rebounds and four assists in 40 minutes Saturday in Dallas.
Impact: The Suns needed Dragic to play in their crucial matchup, and he gutted it out for 40 minutes but wasn't his usual productive self. With the Suns still right in the thick of the playoff race, he's in line for some heavy minutes and hopefully some big lines.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Dragic (ankle) is expected to take the court Saturday at Dallas, ESPN Dallas reports.
Impact: The Arizona Republic's Paul Coro went on a Dallas radio station and speculated that he expects Dragic to play Saturday, so owners should be prepared to start him against the Mavs. Dragic missed Friday's game with an ankle injury, but the Suns are desperate for wins right now with the eighth seed in the Western Conference up for grabs, so it stands to reason that he would try to get back on the court, especially against Dallas, a team that is also in the hunt for the final playoff spot in the conference.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Dragic (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game against the Spurs, AZ Central reports.
Impact: Dragic said there is a "small chance" he plays Friday, but he's still dealing with a considerable amount of swelling and it seems likely he'll be sidelined. An official decision regarding his status will be made prior to game-time, but at this point Gerald Green is the most likely starter at shooting guard.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bledsoe scored 30 points (11-16 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-8 FT), grabbed 11 rebounds, and dished nine assists Friday against the Spurs. He played 37 minutes, and also added three steals.
Impact: Bledsoe also surrendered seven turnovers in the game, but it is not uncommon to find a young point guard struggle with turnovers. Other than blocks, this game was a pretty complete stat stocking stuffer. Bledsoe continues to perform admirably.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Green started for the injured Goran Dragic (ankle) on Friday against the Spurs. He played 36 minutes and scored 27 points (9-19 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 5-5 FT) while adding three assists, three rebounds, two steals, and a block.
Impact: Green has flirted with the edges of fantasy relevancy all season long. Now, with Dragic sidelined, Green seems determined to end his season firmly within the "relevant" subsection. Green is a three pointer and scoring specialist, and if Dragic continues to miss time, Green's value should remain elevated.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Green will start Friday, the Arizona Republic reports.
Impact: With Goran Dragic out with a sprained ankle and still dealing with swelling, Gerald Green will step into the starting shooting guard role and should see extra minutes on the court until Dragic returns.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Dragic (ankle) won't play Friday in San Antonio, the Arizona Republic reports.
Impact: Dragic will sit out after missing morning shootaround due to continued swelling in his ankle. Gerald Green will start in his place, and Dragic's absence leaves numerous minutes in the backcourt to be filled.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Dragic (ankle) will not partake in the morning shootaround but is still a game-time decision for Friday's contest, the AZ Central reports.
Impact: The Suns desperately need Dragic on the court in order to make the best attempt at a playoff berth. It appears that the Suns don't want to rule him out until the last second, so be prepared for a late decision on Dragic's status.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Dragic is dealing with a sprained left ankle and is questionable for Friday's game in San Antonio, AZCentral.com reports.
Impact: Dragic's ankle reportedly improved with treatment Thursday, and the Suns are in no position to take a cautious approach. He's a pretty decent bet to play, but Gerald Green will start, if the Slovenian combo guard can't go. Also worth considering is that the Spurs may rest players in the second game of a back-to-back Friday. Not that the San Antonio reserves are pushovers, but the Suns would probably prefer not to push Dragic too hard with a crucial Saturday game against the Mavericks looming. Owners should root not just for good health, but also a close game.

News: Frye scored four points (2-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt) and grabbed five rebounds in 26 minutes against New Orleans on Wednesday night.
Impact: Frye has now scored less than five points in five of his last six games. In those five duds, he's a stunning 0-19 from the three-point line. His minutes are getting stolen from Markeiff Morris, and there's truthfully no reason to consider playing Frye at this point.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Green scored 21 points (8-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and grabbed two rebounds in 24 minutes against New Orleans on Wednesday.
Impact: When Eric Bledsoe returned from a two-month absence, there was good reason to believe Green's numbers would sag. While that was the case during Bledsoe's first two games back (Green scored a combined 12 points), Green has scored in double-digits in all but one game and is still getting a high percentage of shots. His minutes are down just a little bit, but he's practically the same player he's been all year.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Dragic scored 20 points (8-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with nine assists, three blocks and three rebounds in 39 minutes against New Orleans on Wednesday night.
Impact: He's been a poster child for consistency, but it's nice to see his assists up a slight tick over his last four games. Nothing new to report besides that. His monthly splits hardly vary and there's no reason for that to change over the last two weeks of the regular season.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Green had a second straight great game off the bench Sunday, putting up 24 points, two rebounds, and five three-pointers in 33 minutes.
Impact: Green has scored 22-or-more points in three of his last four games and is getting about 29 minutes per game during that stretch despite having a healthy Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic in the lineup. As long as Green continues to receive that kind of run, he's worth using in most standard leagues.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | STATS
News: Bledsoe scored 30 points Friday.
Impact: He totaled 40 points in his previous three games.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | STATS
News: Green scored 18 of his 32 points in the second half and the Phoenix Suns rallied for a 109-93 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night.
Impact: He's averaging 23.0 points and shooting 50 percent (25 of 50) in the last three games.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Frye posted a dud Friday against the Blazers, scoring just two points on 1-for-6 shooting from the field, while adding five rebounds and two steals in 23 minutes.
Impact: Frye hasn't been the most consistent scorer on the Suns, but his ability to produce modest amounts in rebounds, steals, and three-pointers makes him a low-end option in standard leagues. Hopefully, he'll bounce back from his poor game sooner rather than later.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bledsoe stuffed the stat sheet Friday against the Blazers, posting 30 points (9-17 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 11-13 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, and two blocks in 36 minutes.
Impact: Friday's performance marked a season-best 30 points for Bledsoe, who hasn't been shooting the ball too well since returning from a knee injury. Hopefully, he's getting closer to form, as he's managed to log two consecutive performances shooting 52 percent or better from the field. Regardless, he's worth owning in all formats for his ability to produce in multiple categories.
Fri. Apr 4, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Green exploded for 32 points (12-20 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT) off the bench in Friday's win against the Blazers. He added five rebounds, two assists, and one block in 29 minutes.
Impact: Green has been on fire lately, averaging 23 points, 4.3 rebounds, and three three-pointers made over the last three games. Despite being limited to a bench role, he holds value in standard leagues for his explosiveness in scoring.
