Feb. 2 10:32 AM PT11:32 AM MT12:32 PM CT1:32 PM ET18:32 GMT2:32 11:32 AM MST1:32 PM EST22:32 UAE19:3213:32 ET12:32 PM CTNaN:� - Monroe will sign a one-year, $5 million deal with the Celtics after clearing waivers on Saturday following a buyout from Phoenix.
Analysis: It's a bit of a strange choice for Monroe, a New Orleans native who turned down a shot at playing - and starting - for the Pelicans, who could only pay him $2.2 million. Boston made no promises on playing time, but he should see about 25 minutes a game in the frontcourt.
Jan. 31 5:56 PM PT6:56 PM MT7:56 PM CT8:56 PM ET1:56 GMT9:56 6:56 PM MST8:56 PM EST5:56 UAE (+1)02:5620:56 ET7:56 PM CTNaN:� - The Phoenix Suns have waived center Greg Monroe in a buyout agreement. Monroe was acquired from Milwaukee last Nov. 7 in the trade that sent Eric Bledsoe to the Bucks. He becomes an unrestricted free agent if he clears waivers.
Analysis: Monroe was acquired from Milwaukee on Nov. 7 but sat out 20 of his first 35 games with Phoenix. He's expected to be picked up soon, perhaps by a contender. Keep an eye on this situation.
Jan. 29 6:55 PM PT7:55 PM MT8:55 PM CT9:55 PM ET2:55 GMT10:55 7:55 PM MST9:55 PM EST6:55 UAE (+1)03:5521:55 ET8:55 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored 14 points Monday on 6-of-8 shooting as the Phoenix Suns fell to the Memphis Grizzlies 120-109. Monroe grabbed six rebounds and had three assists, tallying a plus-minus of -16 in his 23:24 of playing time. He tacked on one steal.
Jan. 28 3:13 PM PT4:13 PM MT5:13 PM CT6:13 PM ET23:13 GMT7:13 4:13 PM MST6:13 PM EST3:13 UAE (+1)00:1318:13 ET5:13 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored eight points Sunday on 3-of-4 shooting as the Phoenix Suns lost to the Houston Rockets 113-102. Monroe grabbed two rebounds and had two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -5 in his 15:54 of playing time. He added two steals.
Jan. 26 8:27 PM PT9:27 PM MT10:27 PM CT11:27 PM ET4:27 GMT12:27 9:27 PM MST11:27 PM EST8:27 UAE05:2723:27 ET10:27 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored seven points Friday on 3-of-6 shooting as the Phoenix Suns fell to the New York Knicks 107-85. Monroe grabbed 10 rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -25 in his 25:58 of playing time.
Jan. 24 6:23 PM PT7:23 PM MT8:23 PM CT9:23 PM ET2:23 GMT10:23 7:23 PM MST9:23 PM EST6:23 UAE (+1)03:2321:23 ET8:23 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored 16 points Wednesday, going 7 of 11 from the field, as the Phoenix Suns lost to the Indiana Pacers 116-101. Monroe grabbed 17 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -11 in his 29:21 on the floor. He added one block and one steal.
Analysis: Monroe produces whenever the Suns grant him playing time, having averaged 12.2 points on 64.8 percent shooting along with 9.4 rebounds during a nine-game stretch in which he's posted four double-doubles. It's still more than evident that the big man isn't in Phoenix's long-term plans, so he'll likely need another team to have a chance to be a consistent fantasy contributor.
Jan. 22 2:20 PM PT3:20 PM MT4:20 PM CT5:20 PM ET22:20 GMT6:20 3:20 PM MST5:20 PM EST2:20 UAE (+1)23:2017:20 ET4:20 PM CTNaN:� - Monroe will replace Tyson Chandler in the starting lineup Monday in his return to Milwaukee.
Analysis: Since being acquired from the Bucks on Nov. 7, Monroe has started 11 games and averaged 11.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 3 assists in those outings.
Jan. 22 7:36 PM PT8:36 PM MT9:36 PM CT10:36 PM ET3:36 GMT11:36 8:36 PM MST10:36 PM EST7:36 UAE (+1)04:3622:36 ET9:36 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored 19 points Monday on 9-of-11 shooting as the Phoenix Suns fell to the Milwaukee Bucks 109-105. Monroe pulled down seven rebounds and dished out four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -4 in his 30:09 of playing time. He tacked on two steals.
Analysis: Monroe played for the first time in three games. His 30 minutes were his most since he played 34 on Jan. 3 against Denver. In his last two games with considerable playing time, Monroe has 35 points on 16-of-23 shooting with 17 rebounds and eight assists.
Jan. 14 6:38 PM PT7:38 PM MT8:38 PM CT9:38 PM ET2:38 GMT10:38 7:38 PM MST9:38 PM EST6:38 UAE (+1)03:3821:38 ET8:38 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe went scoreless Sunday as the Phoenix Suns fell to the Indiana Pacers 120-97. Monroe did not grab a rebound but had an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -1 in his 3:16 on the floor.
Jan. 4 11:06 PM PT12:06 AM MT1:06 AM CT2:06 AM ET7:06 GMT15:06 12:06 AM MST2:06 AM EST11:06 UAE08:062:06 ET1:06 AM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored 16 points Wednesday, going 7 of 12 from the field, as the Phoenix Suns lost to the Denver Nuggets 134-111. Monroe pulled down 10 rebounds and had four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -3 in his 34:46 of playing time.
Analysis: The Suns gave Tyson Chandler the night off, allowing Monroe to play for the first time in nearly two weeks and perform pretty well in doing so. Though the high-priced center is Phoenix's best offensive option in the middle, he still looks to be the odd man out of the team's rotation most nights.
Dec. 21 8:25 PM PT9:25 PM MT10:25 PM CT11:25 PM ET4:25 GMT12:25 9:25 PM MST11:25 PM EST8:25 UAE05:2523:25 ET10:25 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored eight points Thursday, going 4 of 8 from the field, as the Phoenix Suns defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 97-95. Monroe grabbed 12 rebounds and had seven assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -4 in his 27:27 on the floor.
Analysis: Monroe fell just short of a second straight double-double but had a season-high seven assists in his return after a three-game absence.
Dec. 14 8:20 AM PT9:20 AM MT10:20 AM CT11:20 AM ET16:20 GMT0:20 9:20 AM MST11:20 AM EST20:20 UAE17:2011:20 ET10:20 AM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored 17 points Wednesday, going 7 of 11 from the field, as the Phoenix Suns lost to the Toronto Raptors 115-109. Monroe pulled down 11 rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -15 in his 30:00 on the floor. He added two blocks and one steal.
Analysis: If Tyson Chandler sits, Monroe is a good fantasy option at center. If Chandler plays, Monroe might not even take the court - that's what happened Tuesday. However, of the Suns' last eight games, Chandler missed four of them and Monroe started in his place, averaging 14.3 points on 71.9 percent shooting along with 8.8 rebounds.
Dec. 10 9:16 PM PT10:16 PM MT11:16 PM CT12:16 AM ET5:16 GMT13:16 10:16 PM MST12:16 AM EST9:16 UAE06:160:16 ET11:16 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored eight points Saturday, going 3 of 7 from the field, as the Phoenix Suns fell to the San Antonio Spurs 104-101. Monroe grabbed 11 rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -4 in his 21:47 of playing time.
Analysis: Monroe isn't getting major minutes but has been productive during his time on the court, having averaged 11.3 points on 66.7 percent shooting along with 9.3 rebounds and three assists over his last three games. The Suns' center rotation has been constantly changing, though, which makes it hard to point a finger on his true fantasy value.
Dec. 7 8:22 PM PT9:22 PM MT10:22 PM CT11:22 PM ET4:22 GMT12:22 9:22 PM MST11:22 PM EST8:22 UAE05:2223:22 ET10:22 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored 15 points Thursday on 6-of-7 shooting as the Phoenix Suns lost to the Washington Wizards 109-99. Monroe pulled down seven rebounds and had five assists, tallying a plus-minus of 0 in his 27:18 on the floor. He added one steal.
Dec. 5 7:42 PM PT8:42 PM MT9:42 PM CT10:42 PM ET3:42 GMT11:42 8:42 PM MST10:42 PM EST7:42 UAE (+1)04:4222:42 ET9:42 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored 11 points Tuesday on 3-of-4 shooting as the Phoenix Suns fell to the Toronto Raptors 126-113. Monroe grabbed 10 rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +1 in his 25:55 on the floor. He tacked on three steals.
Analysis: Monroe made the most of another start, notching his third double-double of the season. In his seven starts, Monroe has averaged 9.9 points on 65.3 percent shooting and 6.3 rebounds.
Dec. 2 1:20 PM PT2:20 PM MT3:20 PM CT4:20 PM ET21:20 GMT5:20 2:20 PM MST4:20 PM EST1:20 UAE (+1)22:2016:20 ET3:20 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored six points Saturday on 2-of-6 shooting as the Phoenix Suns lost to the Boston Celtics 116-111.

Nov. 29 3:03 PM PT4:03 PM MT5:03 PM CT6:03 PM ET23:03 GMT7:03 4:03 PM MST6:03 PM EST3:03 UAE (+1)00:0318:03 ET5:03 PM CTNaN:� - Monroe is starting in place of Tyson Chandler on Wednesday.
Analysis: Monroe didn't even play Tuesday, so he could be in line for big minutes in this one.
Nov. 29 7:11 PM PT8:11 PM MT9:11 PM CT10:11 PM ET3:11 GMT11:11 8:11 PM MST10:11 PM EST7:11 UAE (+1)04:1122:11 ET9:11 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored 14 points Wednesday, going 7 of 10 from the field, as the Phoenix Suns lost to the Detroit Pistons 131-107. Monroe pulled down seven rebounds and had five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -13 in his 25:00 on the floor. He added two steals.
Nov. 26 7:58 PM PT8:58 PM MT9:58 PM CT10:58 PM ET3:58 GMT11:58 8:58 PM MST10:58 PM EST7:58 UAE (+1)04:5822:58 ET9:58 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored eight points Sunday on 4-of-7 shooting as the Phoenix Suns fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves 119-108.

Nov. 24 5:08 PM PT6:08 PM MT7:08 PM CT8:08 PM ET1:08 GMT9:08 6:08 PM MST8:08 PM EST5:08 UAE (+1)02:0820:08 ET7:08 PM CTNaN:� - Monroe is starting Friday in place of Marquese Chriss.
Analysis: As Chriss has continued to struggle, Monroe already has a pair of 20-10 efforts in four games since joining the Suns.
Nov. 24 7:32 PM PT8:32 PM MT9:32 PM CT10:32 PM ET3:32 GMT11:32 8:32 PM MST10:32 PM EST7:32 UAE (+1)04:3222:32 ET9:32 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe went scoreless Friday on 0-of-1 shooting as the Phoenix Suns fell to the New Orleans Pelicans 115-91. Monroe grabbed four rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of 0 in his 12:21 on the floor.
Nov. 23 10:49 PM PT11:49 PM MT12:49 AM CT1:49 AM ET6:49 GMT14:49 11:49 PM MST1:49 AM EST10:49 UAE07:491:49 ET12:49 AM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored 22 points Wednesday, going 8 of 15 from the field, as the Phoenix Suns lost to the Milwaukee Bucks 113-107 in overtime. Monroe grabbed 15 rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -12 in his 32:00 on the floor. He added one block.
Analysis: Eric Bledsoe's return to Phoenix was the main storyline, but Monroe came through with a nice revenge performance of his own. The former Buck is now averaging 14.5 points on a solid 61.9 percent shooting rate along with 8.3 rebounds through his first four games in a Suns uniform.
Nov. 19 7:27 PM PT8:27 PM MT9:27 PM CT10:27 PM ET3:27 GMT11:27 8:27 PM MST10:27 PM EST7:27 UAE (+1)04:2722:27 ET9:27 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored 10 points Sunday on 5-of-7 shooting as the Phoenix Suns defeated the Chicago Bulls 113-105.

Nov. 18 9:40 AM PT10:40 AM MT11:40 AM CT12:40 PM ET17:40 GMT1:40 10:40 AM MST12:40 PM EST21:40 UAE18:4012:40 ET11:40 AM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored six points Friday, going 3 of 6 from the field, as the Phoenix Suns defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 122-113. Monroe grabbed one rebound and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -10 in his 16:00 of playing time. He tacked on one steal.
Nov. 17 11:25 PM PT12:25 AM MT1:25 AM CT2:25 AM ET7:25 GMT15:25 12:25 AM MST2:25 AM EST11:25 UAE08:252:25 ET1:25 AM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe made his Suns debut Thursday and scored 20 points, going 10 of 14 from the field, as Phoenix lost to the Houston Rockets 142-116. Monroe pulled down 11 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -2 in his 26:21 on the floor. He added one block and two steals.
Analysis: Though defense was mostly optional in this one, Monroe did make a pretty decent impression with his new team. How many more chances the well-paid center gets in Phoenix remains to be seen, but his fantasy stock may be trending upward if the Suns decide to showcase him for another potential trade.
Nov. 7 7:10 AM PT8:10 AM MT9:10 AM CT10:10 AM ET15:10 GMT23:10 8:10 AM MST10:10 AM EST19:10 UAE16:1010:10 ET9:10 AM CTNaN:� - Monroe is headed to the Suns along with a pair of draft picks for Eric Bledsoe.
Analysis: Monroe is averaging 6.8 points and 5.0 rebounds in five games this season. He's basically salary filler at this point and shouldn't be getting minutes in Phoenix while they try to develop guys like Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss. But that doesn't necessarily mean he won't play.
Oct. 29 9:57 AM PT10:57 AM MT11:57 AM CT12:57 PM ET16:57 GMT0:57 9:57 AM MST11:57 AM EST20:57 UAE17:5712:57 ET10:57 AM CTNaN:� - Monroe (sore left calf) will make his Suns debut Thursday against the Rockets.
Analysis: The calf injury prevented Monroe from playing for the Suns since being acquired from Milwaukee for Eric Bledsoe on Nov. 7. Monroe is averaging 6.8 points and 5 rebounds in five games this season. He's basically salary filler at this point and shouldn't be getting big minutes in Phoenix while the team tries to develop guys like Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss. But that doesn't necessarily mean he won't play.
Oct. 26 7:22 PM PT8:22 PM MT9:22 PM CT10:22 PM ET2:22 GMT10:22 7:22 PM MST9:22 PM EST6:22 UAE (+1)04:2222:22 ET9:22 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored eight points Thursday on 4-of-8 shooting as the Milwaukee Bucks fell to the Boston Celtics 96-89. Monroe grabbed six rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -1 in his 17:13 on the floor.
Oct. 23 8:03 PM PT9:03 PM MT10:03 PM CT11:03 PM ET3:03 GMT11:03 8:03 PM MST10:03 PM EST7:03 UAE (+1)05:0323:03 ET10:03 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored eight points Monday, going 4 of 9 from the field, as the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Charlotte Hornets 103-94. Monroe grabbed seven rebounds and had three assists, tallying a plus-minus of 0 in his 20:30 on the floor.
Oct. 22 9:50 PM PT10:50 PM MT11:50 PM CT12:50 AM ET4:50 GMT12:50 9:50 PM MST11:50 PM EST8:50 UAE06:500:50 ET11:50 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe went scoreless Saturday on 0-of-3 shooting as the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 113-110. Monroe did not grab a rebound nor have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -3 in his 6:44 on the floor.
Analysis: After getting around 17 minutes in each of Milwaukee's first two games, Monroe was largely affixed to the bench in this one. Though still a capable low-post scorer and rebounder, he's become more and more obsolete by the year in today's small-ball, perimeter-oriented NBA.
Oct. 20 8:05 PM PT9:05 PM MT10:05 PM CT11:05 PM ET3:05 GMT11:05 8:05 PM MST10:05 PM EST7:05 UAE (+1)05:0523:05 ET10:05 PM CTNaN:� - Greg Monroe scored eight points Friday, going 4 of 8 from the field, as the Milwaukee Bucks fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-97.

Monroe pulled down six rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +9 in his 16:49 on the floor.
