Trans. Oct 21 10:32 ET (Oct 21 10:32 ET ) ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Isaiah Thomas scored 26 points including the buzzer-beater at the end of regulation and Gerald Green made 10 of his 21 points in overtime as the Suns topped the Lakers 114-108 in Tuesday's preseason game.
Isaiah Thomas scored eight points with four rebounds, six assists, one block and one turnover against the Nuggets on Friday.
The Scoop:He had a couple beautiful assists and will have no trouble adapting to the Phoenix offense. Thomas' role is still unclear, but he'll be worthy of a pick in the late-middle rounds for the way he can fill up a stat sheet.
Isaiah Thomas played 21 minutes off the Suns bench and hit 5-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 18 points, two rebounds, four assists and three steals on Wednesday.
The Scoop:He easily outplayed starting PG Goran Dragic, despite the fact Dragic played five more minutes again Flamengo. Dragic and Eric Bledsoe are still the first guards you'll want to own in Phoenix, but Thomas should be drafted shortly thereafter. The Suns plan on pushing the ball this season and will use all three guards together at times.
The Scoop:"Probably not very often [will we use a three-guard lineup]. Maybe if we're down... big we might throw it out there." With Dragic, and Bledsoe expected to see starters minutes, IT3 seems to be the odd man out in this situation. Isaiah was very good last year as a starting point guard for the Kings, but as a sixth man in a crowded rotation in Phoenix, it's not likely he'll be able to return to last season's averages of 20.3 points, 6.3 assists, and 1.3 steals per game.
The Scoop:Thomas underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist on August 14, so this news shouldn't come as a huge shock to fantasy owners. The 25-year-old had a fantastic 2013-14 season in which he averaged 20.3 points, 2.9 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.8 three-pointers per game, but his 2014-15 numbers will take a hit as he plays behind Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic. While Thomas's per-minute efficiency still makes him worth a mid-late round draft pick, fantasy owners should be careful not to get too caught up in his 2013-14 numbers.
