Suns' Chris Paul Will Play Limited Minutes Upon Return


March 24, 2022

According to Kellan Olson of Arizona Sports, Phoenix Suns’ star guard Chris Paul will have his minutes monitored in Thursday’s contest against the Denver Nuggets.

Speaking with Phoenix head coach Monty Williams, Olson notes that Paul will be below his usual 28-32 minute range.

The veteran is back in the Suns’ lineup after missing 15 games with a fractured thumb. Phoenix was an impressive 11-4 over that stretch.

Paul is in the midst of one of the finest seasons of his career, averaging 14.9 points, 4.5 rebounds, and a league-leading 10.7 assists per game.

While the minutes limit could cap the 12-time All-Star’s upside in DFS contests, he is worth deploying in all season-long leagues.

Paul’s return is bad news for Cameron Payne owners, who performed well in CP3’s absence.

FanDuel Sportsbook has Phoenix as +1.5 road underdogs on the spread and -135 on the moneyline.
