  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Starting Sunday

    Okogie is starting Sunday's game against the Knicks.

    Okogie will make his seventh start of the season due to Grayson Allen (illness) and Kevin Durant (foot) both being out. After starting Phoenix's first five games of the year, Okogie has primary operated with a 15-20 minute workload off the bench, but he logged 28 minutes in Friday's win over Memphis and will likely receive a similar workload Sunday.

    Okogie recorded 12 points (4-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds, one block and one steal over 27 minutes during Wednesday's 123-115 victory over the Warriors.

    Okogie had totaled just six points over his last three appearances, but he saw an uptick in playing time Wednesday with Grayson Allen getting into some foul trouble. Okogie has come off the bench in nine of his last 10 appearances and has averaged 6.1 points and 2.7 rebounds in 19.3 minutes per game in that span.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Starting Sunday

    Okogie is starting Sunday against the Thunder.

    Okogie came off the bench in his last four appearances but will reclaim a starting role Sunday while Keita Bates-Diop retreats to the bench. Okogie started in his first five appearances of the season and averaged 9.0 points and 3.4 rebounds in 25.8 minutes per game.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Moves to bench

    Okogie isn't in the starting five for Saturday's game versus the 76ers.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Held in check Thursday

    Okogie accumulated zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound and two steals in 12 minutes during Thursday's 132-121 loss to the Spurs.

    The Suns fell behind early in Thursday's matchup, and Okogie saw a reduced role in the blowout. While he made an impact defensively with two steals, he saw minimal shot volume and was held scoreless for the first time this season. He averaged 11.3 points and 4.0 rebounds in 29.3 minutes per game over the first four matchups of the year, so better days will likely be ahead when the Suns are playing in more competitive games.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Excellent on defense in win

    Okogie produced 10 points (3-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and one block over 32 minutes during Thursday's 100-95 loss to the Lakers.

    Okogie will often line up against the opposition's best player, but Thursday was a special exception, as there was no question that Kevin Durant and LeBron James would play one-on-one throughout the game. Instead, Okogie kept Taurean Prince and Rui Hachimura in check and occasionally tangled with Austin Reaves. Finding points will be a continuing issue for Okogie, but his defensive prowess is invaluable to the Suns.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Stellar two-way play in win

    Okogie finished with 17 points (7-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal across 32 minutes during Tuesday's 108-104 victory over Golden State.

    Okogie's performance doesn't translate as well on paper, but his hustle and defensive prowess were evident throughout the game. Many might underestimate Okogie's impact, but his work on defense will be a huge difference-maker. Outside of an opposing center, Okogie will guard the opponent's most productive player on a nightly basis.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Moves back to starting unit

    Okogie is in the starting lineup for Thursday's preseason matchup against the Lakers, Ryan Ward of reports.

    Okogie has looked impressive in the preseason and will get the nod here at small forward. It wouldn't be surprising if he starts on Opening Night alongside Kevin Durant, Bradley Beal, Devin Booker and Jusuf Nurkic.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Moves to bench

    Okogie will move to the bench for Thursday's preseason game against the Blazers.

    Okogie has had an outstanding preseason through two games, and he appears to be the favorite to start on the wing on opening night. Nassir Little is getting a start Thursday to showcase what he can bring to the table.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Leads team with 17 points

    Okogie recorded 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocked shots across 24 minutes in Tuesday's 115-107 preseason loss to the Nuggets.

    Okogie won't be asked to score this much during the regular season when the team is fully healthy, but his two steals and two blocks demonstrate his defensive upside. In the starting five, Okogie will be asked to focus on defense, while Bradley Beal, Devin Booker and Kevin Durant look to make plays. Fantasy managers in need of defensive stats late in drafts can consider Okogie, but he's better suited for deep leagues.

  • Suns' Josh Okogie: Retained by Phoenix

    The Suns signed Okogie on Friday, Chris Haynes of Turner Sports reports.

    While the details of the contract are yet to be announced, Okogie will head back to the Suns after spending 2022-23 with Phoenix. He averaged 7.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 18.8 minutes across 72 appearances, including 26 starts. While Okogie is unlikely to garner much fantasy interest, his perimeter defense will be crucial to a Phoenix team that lacks depth behind Devin Booker, Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal.
