Monroe will come off the bench for Saturday's game against the Spurs, Craig Grialou of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Monroe has started the last two games in place of Tyson Chandler (personal), a stretch where he averaged a respectable 13.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.0 steals across 26.5 minutes. However, Chandler has been cleared to play and will rejoin the top unit, which sends Monroe back to the bench. With fellow reserve center Alex Len dealing with a knee injury, look for Monroe to take on the bulk of the backup minutes behind Chandler. That said, the uncertainty surrounding Monroe's exact role likely makes him someone to avoid Saturday for fantasy purposes.

Monroe collected 15 points (6-7 FG, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Thursday's 109-99 loss to Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Monroe received an unexpected start Thursday, as Tyson Chandler (personal) was given the night off. The center rotation has been a bit of a mess over the past two weeks, however, Monroe has shown glimpses of what he can bring to a fantasy squad. There is still a lot of uncertainty moving forward, but he is worth stashing if you have some room on your bench.

Monroe will get the start at center for Thursday's game against the Wizards, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was reported earlier in the day that Monroe would come off the bench Thursday. However, Tyson Chandler has since been ruled out for personal reasons, so Monroe will get the starting nod. The big man should see a relatively healthy workload as a result.

Monroe will shift back to the bench for Thursday's game against the Wizards, Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Monroe picked up the start on Tuesday with Tyson Chandler sitting out for rest, posting a double-double with 11 points (3-4 FG, 5-6 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and three steals across 26 minutes. However, Chandler will be returning to the starting five Thursday, which means Monroe will head back to a bench role. With Alen Len also in the fold, coach Jay Triano indicated he could use all three centers Thursday with a 20, 20 and eight breakdown for minutes, but it's unclear exactly which workload Monroe would see. For that reason, he'll be very risky fantasy play for Thursday's slate.

Monroe will draw the start at center for Tuesday's game against the Raptors, Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Suns are contemplating sitting Tyson Chandler for rest Tuesday and Alex Len is currently a game-time decision with an ankle injury, so Monroe gets the call to join the top unit. Monroe should be in line for an increased workload while working with the starting five, especially if neither Chandler or Len are ultimately cleared to play. The Suns have rotated their big men with DNP-CDs over the last few weeks, which severely hurts the fantasy value of Monroe, who's been held out of two of the last four games for that exact reason. That said, Monroe should see plenty of playing time in Tuesday's start.

Monroe will come off the bench while Tyson Chandler draws the start at center for Saturday's game against the Celtics, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Monroe continues to bounce back and forth between the starting lineup and the bench in Phoenix, even collecting a DNP-CD against Chicago earlier in the week. Over his past five appearances, he's averaging 10.8 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists across 21.4 minutes per game.

Monroe totaled 14 points (7-10 FG), seven rebounds, five assists, and two steals in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 131-107 loss to the Pistons.

EDGE Analysis

Monroe put up a decent line as the starter, this after receiving a DNP-Coach's Decision in Tuesday's win over the Bulls. Given that the Suns are currently carrying three centers (the other two being Tyson Chandler and Alex Len), it will likely be tough to predict who plays and how much on any given night, as all three have appeared in the same contest just once over the last five tilts.

Monroe will start Wednesday's game against the Pistons, Scott Bordow of AZCentral.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Suns have experimented with a number of frontcourt alignments since acquiring Monroe from Milwaukee. Most recently, Monroe came off the bench Tuesday against the Bulls, while Tyson Chandler and Dragan Bender got the nod up front. Prior to that, coach Jay Triano had started Monroe and Chandler together, in addition to trying lineups with either Chandler or Monroe starting alongside Marquese Chriss. On Wednesday, Triano will go with Monroe and Chriss in the frontcourt, and they'll be joined by T.J. Warren, Devin Booker and Tyler Ulis.

Monroe will come off the bench for Tuesday's tilt against the Bulls, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Monroe will play a reserve role in favor of second year stretch-four Dragan Bender. It will be his second time coming off the bench in six games with the Suns. The decision is likely matchup based, but the team could also be giving Bender a chance to make an impression. Still, the most minutes Monroe has played with the Suns came in his previous reserve stint, so it is tough to predict what type of workload he will see Tuesday.

Monroe will draw the start at power forward for Friday's game against the Pelicnas, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

After drawing starts in his first three games with the Suns, Monroe played a reserve role against his former team Wednesday due to the return of Tyson Chandler. However, he will return to the starting lineup along with Chandler Friday in order to matchup against the Pelican's dynamic frontcourt duo of DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis. Marquese Chriss will slide to the bench as a result.
