Deandre Ayton to stick with Suns' second unit during road trip
Phoenix Suns center Deandre Ayton will continue to play off the bench during the team's upcoming three-game road trip, per head coach Monty Williams.
The Suns open the trip against the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday, then visit the New York Knicks on Thursday, and wrap things up against the Boston Celtics on Saturday. Ayton averaged 15.5 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals, and 2.0 blocks the past two games while playing off the bench. Ricky Rubio (personal) is expected to sit out Tuesday, so it's possible Ayton will get the nod.
numberFire's models expect Ayton to score 36.4 FanDuel points on Tuesday. He's priced at $7,600.
