by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Report: Suns' Wright expects to play in Wednesday's game


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) Suns forward Brandan Wright was able to participate in Tuesday's practice and is expected to play in Wednesday's game against the Wizards, reports The Arizona Republic.

Suns center Brandan Wright out for Sunday's game with heel injury


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) Suns center Brandan Wright will miss Sunday's game against the Clippers with a sore left heel, the team announced pregame.

Wright has played in six games since being traded to Phoenix and is averaging 4.8 points and 2.6 rebounds in 17.6 minutes per contest.


Brandan Wright's Fantasy value could return in Phoenix


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2015) Suns center Brandan Wright should fit in beautifully with his new team, but how much should Fantasy owners expect that to impact his value moving forward?

Wright's value took a big hit when he left Dallas, where he was a perfect fit in the second unit. Backing up Tyson Chandler limited Wright's playing time, but he was tremendous when he was on the floor in Dallas, averaging 8.8 points and 4.1 rebounds per game in just 18.7 minutes, on the strength of 74.8 percent shooting. He might not be able to sustain that kind of shooting in Phoenix, though their cadre of talented point guards should give him plenty of chances to run at the rim.

Wright was a solid Fantasy option in Dallas thanks to his shooting and defense, and he could return to that level in Phoenix. The question is going to be whether he can get to that 18-20 minute range he was at in Dallas. At this point, there are probably too many other centers worth your attention on waivers ahead of Wright, but if he starts playing 20 minutes every game for the Suns, you'll want to snag him in category-based leagues.
