Jae Crowder shifted to the second unit for Monday's loss vs. Memphis, but Suns coach Monty Williams intends to use Crowder to close games.
"It gives you a better chance [to win] to finish with Jae," Williams said. Cameron Johnson has taken over the starting PF spot to spark the Suns' offense, with Williams saying, "I'm hopeful that lineup with Cam out there with his cutting and spacing the floor can help that starting unit." The new starting five doesn't seem likely to change any time soon, but Crowder played 27 minutes on Monday and neither he nor Johnson see a big shift in fantasy value based on their starter/bench swap.
