  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Not starting Game 6

    Okogie will come off the bench for Thursday's Game 6 versus the Nuggets.

    Though Okogie has gotten the starting nod in each of the first five games of the series, he hasn't played more than 22 minutes and saw just eight minutes during Game 5. The Suns will instead opt to start Landry Shamet at the three alongside Cameron Payne, Devin Booker, Kevin Durant and Jock Landale. Considering Okogie hasn't scored more than five points in the series and has an unclear role, fantasy managers should look elsewhere Thursday.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Invisible in Game 5 loss

    Okogie supplied one point (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and one assist across eight minutes during Tuesday's 118-102 loss to the Nuggets in Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

    Okogie got the starting nod again Tuesday, although managed to play just eight minutes in the loss. While the Suns are still very much alive in the series, their lack of depth remains a major issue. Outside of Kevin Durant and Devin Booker, there is very little to fall back on in terms of scoring. Okogie is certainly not viewed as a key piece on the offensive end, but the coaching staff would certainly like to see a bit more out of him, even if it is simply being a viable threat.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Enters first unit

    Okogie will start Saturday's Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals versus the Nuggets.

    After starting the final 25 games of the regular season, Okogie shifted to the second unit for the Suns' series against the Clippers in favor of Torrey Craig, but he will rejoin the starters for Game 1 against Denver. Despite coming off the bench, Okogie has logged 25 and 33 minutes in his past two appearances. He should be an intriguing value option for daily formats.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Key bench minutes in win

    Okogie ended Saturday's 112-100 win over the Clippers in Game 4 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals with six points (2-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 25 minutes.

    Okogie basically split minutes with Torrey Craig, playing as the fifth option in a series-defining victory. The Suns are now on the brink of advancing to the second round, where they would face the Nuggets. As long as the Suns are healthy, Okogie should continue to serve as a key bench piece.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Not starting Sunday

    Okogie isn't in the lineup for Game 1 of the Western Conference First Round against the Clippers on Sunday.

    Okogie started the final 25 games of the regular season, averaging 11.0 points and 4.3 rebounds in 28.6 minutes per game. However, he'll come off the bench for the first game of the playoffs while Torrey Craig joins the starting lineup.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Near double-double in win

    Okogie chipped in 10 points (4-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, one block and two steals across 33 minutes during Wednesday's 107-100 win over Minnesota.

    Okogie remained in the starting lineup with Kevin Durant (ankle) making his return and scored in double figures for the first time since March 16. He also grabbed a team-high nine boards, his most since Jan. 16, and fell one short of his third double-double this season. Across 14 March appearances (all starts), Okogie has averaged 9.6 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.6 steals-plus-blocks in 27.1 minutes per game.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Poor production continues

    Okogie recorded nine points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 21 minutes during Monday's 117-103 win over the Jazz.

    Okogie remained in the starting lineup Monday but unfortunately also remained largely unproductive. After a stretch in which he put up 12-team value, his numbers have fallen off a cliff of late. Despite having carved out a consistent role, he is not worth rostering outside of deeper formats.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Struggles from field in win

    Okogie accumulated 15 points (4-14 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, four assists, three blocks and three steals in 30 minutes during Thursday's 116-113 victory over the Magic.

    Okogie did an excellent job of racking up stats and filling out the stat sheet, but he struggled from the field and was woeful from beyond the arc, missing eight of his 10 attempts. The Suns don't need him to be the primary scorer, however, and his all-around contributions still make him valuable in fantasy now that he's operating as a starter. Okogie is averaging 13.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.5 steals per game since moving to the first unit following the trade deadline (13 games).

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Delivers at charity stripe

    Okogie posted eight points (1-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-8 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and two steals over 35 minutes during Tuesday's 116-104 loss to the Bucks.

    Okogie continues to start in Kevin Durant's place, and although he isn't coming anywhere close to what Durant can provide offensively, his defensive contribution has been quite impressive. While that effort doesn't always translate in fantasy, he's also popped with positive offensive results during his stint with the starting five. Despite scoring only eight points During Tuesday's loss, he's posted double-digit scoring totals in eight of his last 12 games as a starter.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Offensive explosion Friday

    Okogie notched 25 points (7-15 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 6-6 FT) and four rebounds over 32 minutes during Friday's 125-104 win over the Bulls.

    Okogie went off for 25 points, including five triples, rewarding anyone who accidentally forgot to drop him. While this was obviously a fantastic outing, managers should not expect production like this very often. With Kevin Durant healthy, Okogie is clearly the fifth option on offense, with the bulk of his value likely to come from steals. Feel free to hold him for another game, but remember that this could be the most he scores for the remainder of the season.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Starting Wednesday

    Okogie will start alongside Chris Paul, Devin Booker, Kevin Durant and Deandre Ayton for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Okogie has been hot over the past six games, posting averages of 18.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 3.0 triples and 2.0 steals per contest on 53.4 percent shooting from the field, but the scoring will surely take a hit with the addition of Kevin Durant. Still, he's worth holding to see what he'll be able to do with this new starting group. Torrey Craig will head to the bench.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Paces Suns with 24 points

    Okogie finished Thursday's 116-107 loss to the Clippers with 24 points (9-16 FG, 6-12 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and three steals in 41 minutes.

    Okogie continued on his merry way Thursday, adding to easily the best stretch of his career. He has scored at least 17 points in four straight games, putting up second-round value in nine-category formats. Anyone who managed to snap him up has to be thrilled with his production, although we are obviously working on borrowed time here. With Kevin Durant likely to return from a knee injury not long after the All-Star break, Okogie's run could soon be a thing of the past. With that said, until we have a firm date for Durant's return, managers can simply roll with Okogie and enjoy the good times.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Strong shooting performance in win

    Okogie posted 19 points (8-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds and three assists in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 120-109 victory over the Kings.

    The defensive-minded wing was kept out of the rotation for three straight games at the beginning of February, but he's seen an increased workload with Mikal Bridges and Cameron Johnson gone and Kevin Durant (knee) not yet available. Okogie drew a second consecutive start Tuesday and played at least 30 minutes in a third straight game. Since being reinserted into the rotation, he's averaged 20.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 steals in 35.3 minutes while shooting 55.0 percent from the field and 60 percent from deep. This hot streak is likely unsustainable, but Okogie figures to remain a prominent part of Phoenix's plans while Devin Booker (groin) works his way back to full strength and Durant remains sidelined.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Will start Friday

    Okogie will start Friday's game against the Pacers, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    Despite being healthy, Okogie didn't see any action in three straight games before exploding for a team-high 25 points during Thursday's loss to the Hawks. The fifth-year wing has been rewarded for his strong play with a spot start while the blockbuster deal between Brooklyn and Phoenix is still being finalized.
