Cameron Payne coming off Suns' bench Thursday with Chris Paul starting
Phoenix Suns guard Cameron Payne will play with teh second unit Thursday in the team's game against the Los Angeles Clippers.
Payne started the first two contests of the Western Conference Finals, but that's changing in Game 3. Chris Paul is returning to the court after being placed in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols, and he'll immediately return to the starting lineup as well. That means Payne will now come off the bench.
Our models project Payne for 8.6 points, 2.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 17.8 FanDuel points across 18.1 minutes of action.
