  • Suns' Jusuf Nurkic: Still dealing with ankle soreness

    Nurkic (ankle) participated in non-contract parts of Tuesday's practice, Gerald Bourguet of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Nurkic tweaked his ankle at a practice last week, attempted to play through the issue Thursday versus Dallas and was sidelined for Friday's matchup versus the Rockets. The big man returned to action Sunday and exploded for 18 points, 22 rebounds and seven assists during a win over the Lakers. He'll have another day to rest and recover before attempting to suit up Thursday against Houston.

  • Suns' Eric Gordon: Logs limited practice Tuesday

    Gordon (groin) participated in non-contact parts of Tuesday's practice, Gerald Bourguet of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Gordon was sidelined for Sunday's loss to the Lakers due to a groin injury after a poor performance against Houston on Friday, which was the second night of a back-to-back set. Gordon's absence may have been routine maintenance for the veteran, who continues to step up when Bradley Beal (hamstring) is out of the lineup. Gordon will have another day to rest and recover before attempting to suit up for Thursday's matchup against the Rockets.

  • Suns' Bradley Beal: Partial participant at practice

    Beal (hamstring) participated in non-contract parts of Tuesday's practice, Gerald Bourguet of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Beal has missed four straight games dating back to before the All-Star break, and while he hasn't been cleared for full-contract work yet, he continues to trend in the right direction. Eric Gordon (groin) and Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) were also limited participants Tuesday, but they'll have one more day to recover before attempting to suit up Thursday versus Houston.

  • Suns' Devin Booker: Leading distributor in victory

    Booker ended with 21 points (8-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, nine assists and one steal over 38 minutes during Sunday's 123-113 victory over the Lakers.

    Booker led all Suns players in assists while ending as one of four players with 20 or more points and coming up one dime short of a double-double. Booker has finished with 20 or more points in eight of his last 10 outings, now having recorded at least nine assists in 11 games.

    Allen was red-hot from three in Sunday's contest, connecting on a team-high-tying mark from three en route to leading the Suns in scoring in an offensive outburst. Allen has buried six or more threes in six games this season, surpassing the 20-point mark in seven appearances.

  • Suns' Royce O'Neale: Posts 20-10 double-double in start

    O'Neale ended with 20 points (7-12 FG, 6-10 3Pt), 10 rebounds, four assists, one block and two steals across 37 minutes during Sunday's 123-113 victory over the Lakers.

  • Suns' Drew Eubanks: Returns to second unit

    Eubanks will come off the bench for Sunday's game against the Lakers.

    Eubanks gives way to Jusuf Nurkic (ankle), who will return to action and reclaim his starting role Sunday following a one-game absence. Eubanks is averaging 4.8 points and 4.0 rebounds in 12.8 minutes across his last five games off the bench.

  • Suns' Royce O'Neale: Starting Sunday

    O'Neale will start Sunday's game against the Lakers, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    With Bradley Beal (hamstring) and Eric Gordon (groin) out, O'Neale will make his first start with the Suns. He made six starts for the Nets earlier in the campaign, averaging 8.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.5 steals-plus-blocks in 30.5 minutes during those contests.

  • Suns' Eric Gordon: Won't play Sunday

    Gordon (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lakers, Gerald Bourguet of GoPHNX.com reports.

    The Suns will be without Gordon and Bradley Beal (hamstring), so their backcourt depth will be tested. Phoenix has opted to go big versus Los Angeles, replacing Gordon with Royce O'Neale. Gordon's next chance to suit up will come Thursday versus the Rockets.

  • Suns' Jusuf Nurkic: Good to go Sunday

    Nurkic (ankle) will play Sunday against the Lakers, Gerald Bourguet of GoPHNX.com reports.

    As expected, Nurkic has been upgraded from probable to available and will replace Drew Eubanks in the starting lineup. Over his final eight games before the All-Star break, Nurkic averaged 13.9 points, 9.9 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks in 26.4 minutes per game.

  • Suns' Jusuf Nurkic: Expected to play

    Nurkic (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game versus the Lakers.

    Nurkic was unable to play Friday versus Houston, but he's expected to be back in his usual spot in the lineup to face the Lakers. Drew Eubanks started in Nurkic's spot Friday and produced nine points, five rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal.

  • Suns' Eric Gordon: Iffy for Sunday

    Gordon is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lakers with left groin soreness.

    Bradley Beal (hamstring) will miss his fourth straight game, and now his replacement with the first unit is in jeopardy of missing time. If Gordon is unable to shake this issue, the Suns could turn to Josh Okogie and Royce O'Neale to pick up some minutes on the wings.

  • Suns' Bradley Beal: Out again Sunday

    Beal (hamstring) won't play Sunday against the Lakers.

    Beal went through a lengthy pregame workout prior to Friday's 114-110 loss to Houston, but he ended up sitting out that game and will now miss a fourth straight contest Sunday. After Sunday's contest, Phoenix is off until Thursday against the Rockets, so Beal could have a good chance at making it back for the start of the Suns' three-game week if he avoids any setbacks with his hamstring in the coming days. Eric Gordon, who has been starting in Beal's place over the past three games, is questionable for Sunday's game with left groin soreness.

  • Suns' Bol Bol: Solid play off bench Friday

    Bol ended Friday's 114-110 loss to the Rockets with 25 points (11-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 14 rebounds, one block and one steal across 27 minutes.

    Bol recorded his first double-double of the season, but he did more than that, as he finished with season-high marks in minutes played, points and rebounds. Drew Eubanks got the start at center with Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) sidelined, but it wouldn't be shocking if Bol is handed a bigger role against the Lakers on Sunday based on how both players performed in this one. However, If Nurkic is able to return against Los Angeles, then Bol would have to remain as a bench alternative.

  • Suns' Kevin Durant: Goes for 28 points in loss

    Durant registered 28 points (10-22 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 7-10 FT), 11 rebounds, eight assists, two blocks and one steal in 38 minutes during Friday's 114-110 loss to Houston.

    Durant made history Friday and climbed to ninth place on the NBA's all-time scoring list, but his efforts were not enough to lift the Suns to victory in this Western Conference battle. Durant has scored at least 20 points in seven games in a row, a span in which he's averaging 26.7 points per game while shooting 51 percent from the field. Even though he has to share the ball and the scoring load with Devin Booker and Bradley Beal (hamstring) when the latter is available, Durant hasn't suffered a sizable dip in his fantasy numbers compared to recent years.

  • Suns' Grayson Allen: Strong all-around effort Friday

    Allen produced 15 points (4-9 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds, six assists, two blocks and two steals across 36 minutes during Friday's 114-110 loss to the Rockets.

    Allen has been playing well of late and has scored in double digits in four of his last five appearances, showing he is not afraid of having more responsibility on offense if called upon, especially with Bradley Beal (hamstring) sidelined once again. Allen's real value lies in his three-point shooting and his ability to stuff the stat sheet, however, and on that note, he produced another solid outing. He's averaging 12.6 points, 4.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 0.8 blocks and 0.6 steals per game over his last five contests.
