Advice: With T.J. Warren getting ejected after 12 minutes and Jamal Crawford (knee) out, that helped the rookie play a career-high 39 minutes with three rebounds, three assists and four triples. He has solid all-around upside and his role should grow with the Suns expected to move on from Trevor Ariza in the near future, so he's a solid stash if you can live with some bumps in the road.

Mikal Bridges scored seven points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.
Advice: It looked like coach Igor Kokoskov was yelling Bridges in this game, and his five fouls in 23 minutes is not great. The Suns have been blown out badly with Bridges in the starting lineup, so maybe Igor makes a move. Bridges is still going to be more of a stash and his standalone value is losing its luster, but clearly this team is eyeing the No. 1 spot in the lottery.

Advice: Devin Booker (hamstring) was out tonight and the game was over after the first quarter, so Bridges was able to tie his season high in minutes, but despite getting heavy minutes for much of the season, he's not been able to break out. He's got plenty of time to get it going and the tanking Suns are going to keep giving him minutes, making him an intriguing stash in fantasy, especially in deeper leagues.
