Phoenix Suns Roster

Phoenix Suns guard Chris Paul finished with 22 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, and two steals in 38 minutes during Thursday's loss to Boston. The veteran may be averaging 15.9 points per game this season, but he has posted at least 22 points in the last three games. Paul may not put up a lot of points every night, but he does dish out a lot of assists, which in turn balances out his fantasy value. Overall, the 35-year-old is still a decent fantasy option at this point in the season given his versatility and generally good role on this squad. Up next is a great matchup on Sunday against a below-average Brooklyn defense.
Phoenix Suns forward Dario Saric (ankle) is available for Thursday's game against the Boston Celtics. He normally isn't a huge part of the rotation, but Saric could see more minutes with the Suns being a little shorthanded. Sadly, Saric rarely does enough on the court to warrant using as a streaming option. Fantasy managers should be able to find a better streaming option for Thursday.
Phoenix Suns forward Dario Saric (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's matchup with Boston. Fellow forward Jae Crowder (ankle) has been ruled out for the contest. Both players are dealing with ankle injuries of varying degrees, though Saric's has now been listed as an ankle sprain after previously being diagnosed as 'soreness.' It's looking like Frank Kaminsky and Cam Johnson could be busy on Thursday night.
Phoenix Suns small forward Mikal Bridges had a solid 18-point outing in Wednesday's victory over the Sixers while also bagging a pair of steals and blocks on the defensive end. He finished with 6-for-11 shooting and recorded four rebounds and one assist with zero turnovers in 37 minutes. Bridges led his team in playing time and was a team-best plus-10 for the contest. The 24-year-old lacks consistency offensively, but he's impressed in a pair of tough matchups at the start of an East Coast trip. The road trip continues in Boston on Thursday. Bridges flirted with a double-double in this year's first meeting with the Celtics, going for 19 points and nine rebounds on 61.5 percent shooting.
Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul scored a team-high 28 points on 10-for-17 shooting in Wednesday's road win over Philadelphia, adding eight assists with three rebounds, one block and zero turnovers. CP3 was 5-for-8 from downtown and 3-for-4 at the foul line. Paul's scoring numbers have been up and down all year, but he's now managed to drop 20-plus points in back-to-back games. The veteran floor general will look to post his first three-game streak of 20-point games this season on Thursday against Boston. He'll be in a very tough spot as a 35-year-old with no rest days, but Paul has actually been very solid in such situations all year, shooting over 50 percent from the field and averaging 16.6 points per game, which is higher than his season average.
