by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

But for the most part, I can tolerate it a little bit. Hopefully, it responds good tomorrow because today I did the most I've done in two weeks. If it responds good, I'm going to play."

Suns PG Isaiah Thomas tweaked his ankle in practice Thursday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2014) Suns point guard Isaiah Thomas told reporters he suffered a setback in his recovery from an ankle injury earlier in the week. Thomas was making progress and was cleared to participate in four-on-four drills, but aggravated the injury while driving to the rim on Thursday, according to the Arizona Republic.

As a result, the injury has kept him sidelined for five games, and possibly longer. The 25-year-old told the paper he's not planning to return until he's at full-speed.

"If I could sprint, I would be out there playing," Thomas said. "I can't even do that. I don't want to be out there just to be out there. It's pointless for me now. I'd probably be hurting my team. Once it gets better to where I can push off and cut like I want to, I'm going to be out there because I hate watching.

"It's slowly getting better, but it's not good enough to play. I can't jump off one foot yet. Once that comes back, I'll be able to play."

What does Eric Bledsoe re-signing mean?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) The Suns finally ended their standoff with restricted free agent guard Eric Bledsoe Wednesday, as they brought the 24-year-old back into the fold on a massive five-year contract. That leaves the Suns with a crowded and clowdy backcourt situation, as far as Fantasy owners are concerned.

Bledsoe combined with Goran Dragic to form one of the most productive backcourts in the league, as both players thrived on the stat sheet. Bledsoe averaged a career-high 17.7 points per game, a mark Dragic bested en route to his own career-high of 20.3 points per game.

Part of the reason both players were so productive is the team relied heavily on each for creating and scoring, which lessened the pressure on both. Though the Suns weren't hard up for productive scorers, they lacked off-the-dribble creators beyond those two, a flaw they shored up with the addition of Isaiah Thomas on a three-year deal this offseason. Thomas is, of course, the big loser in this scenario.

Thomas was one of the most productive guards in the league himself a year ago, racking up 20.3 points and 6.3 assists per game while soaking up 26.3 percent of the Kings' possessions in 34.7 minutes per game. He should see all of those numbers fall off drastically this season, making him an extremely risky pickup for Fantasy. He should still find a decent amount of playing time, but it is hard to imagine the diminutive Thomas being a consistent starting Fantasy option if Bledsoe stays healthy. He is more of a handcuff option, if you invest heavily in Bledsoe early. 

Gerald Green, who played 36 percent of his minutes at shooting guard last season, will also lose out, following his breakout campaign. He still has value, but is more of a low-end option for category-based formats.


Despite new role, don't write off Isaiah Thomas entirely


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Suns guard Isaiah Thomas might see one of the biggest dropoffs in his Fantasy value from last season to this, as he joins the crowded Suns' backcourt.

The Suns might have three All-Star caliber guards in the backcourt now, with Thomas likely to backup Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe this season. That should put a serious dent in Thomas' value; Thomas finished 13th in Fantasy scoring among guards a year ago, but is projected to finish just 43rd this season.

Still, Thomas is definitely someone you'll want to add to your team when drafting, and almost certainly before the rest of the No. 4-type guards he is grouped with. Thomas is likely to see his numbers fall off from the 20.3 points and 6.3 assists he averaged a year ago, at least at first. However, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him end up starting upwards of 25 games throughout the year, given Bledsoe's injury-proneness. Bledsoe has missed at least 25 games in two of the last three seasons for knee issues.

Thomas probably profiles as more of a bench option for Fantasy purposes next season, but you'll be targeting him much earlier than nearly any other reserve. His upside as a handcuff option for either Bledsoe or Dragic is sky-high, and will make him well worth your attention on Draft Day. 


Isaiah Thomas undergoes wrist surgery


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Suns newcomer Isaiah Thomas underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist, the team announced Thursday.

Thomas dealt with a sprained wrist last season but was able to play through it on his way to a career year. An MRI in February revealed no ligament damage, which would indicate this latest procedure is nothing to worry about. The team expects him to be ready for training camp. 


Suns, Kings complete sign-and-trade for Isaiah Thomas


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) The Suns and Kings have finalized a sign-and-trade deal on a four-year, $27M contract for restricted free agent Isaiah Thomas, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports Friday.

The former 60th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft will be heading to Phoenix, while Sacramento will receive a $7 million trade exception and the rights to forward Alex Oriakhi, the 57th overall pick in 2013, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

Thomas averaged career-highs of 20.3 points and 6.3 assists last season for the Kings. He is expected to serve as an ideal third guard to complement Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic in Phoenix, according to CBSSports.com NBA Insider Ken Berger.


Report: Darren Collison agrees to three-year deal with Sacramento


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) The Kings have inked point guard Darren Collison to a three-year deal worth $16 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Collison spent the previous season serving as Chris Paul's backup with the Clippers. He did well enough for himself during Paul's absence to earn a contract in Sacramento, averaging 14.4 points, 6.1 assists and 1.6 steals in the month of January.

This could affect whether or not the Kings re-sign restricted free agent Isaiah Thomas, who also enjoyed a stellar season. 


Could Isaiah Thomas be bought away from the Kings?


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2014) Restricted free agent Isaiah Thomas has drawn interest from several teams just hours into free agency. His first reported phone call after midnight was from Danny Ainge of the Celtics, and as of Tuesday morning the Pistons are reportedly willing to throw $8 million his way, according to Bleacher Report.

Other interested teams include the Heat, Mavericks and Lakers. Though most restricted free agents end up back with their incumbent teams, this one could go the other way. The Kings have supposedly been shopping for a point guard, with rumors of interest in free agent Shaun Livingston as well as trade candidate Rajon Rondo. Sacramento has also been unwilling to commit to giving Thomas fulltime point guard duties since he arrived, often looking to pair him with another player. 

Last season Thomas showed he was ready to carry the load -- at least statistically. He averaged 20.3 points, 6.3 assists and 1.3 steals per game as the Kings' lone point man. He might still end up a sixth man again with another team, but at least his salary will reflect his value. 


Kings will extend qualifying offer to Isaiah Thomas


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2014) Kings general manager Pete D'Alessandro told reporters that the team will extend a qualifying offer to guard Isaiah Thomas, which would officially make him a restricted free agent, the Cowbell Kingdom reports.

Thomas put together a breakout season in 2013-14, averaging 20.3 points, 6.3 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 72 games (54 starts). He shot 45.3 percent from the floor, and 50.4 percent from downtown over that span, all career high shooting for the 25-year-old.

Isaiah Thomas scores 14 points in surprise return


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2014) After missing his previous 10 games with a bruised quad, Kings guard Isaiah Thomas made a surprise return to the floor Sunday night against the Timberwolves.

Thomas scored 14 points on 6 of 13 from the floor, including 1 of 5 from downtown, and 1 of 2 from the free throw line. He also contributed with four assists and three rebounds in 30 minutes of game action in a 106-103 win.
