    On Tuesday the Grizzlies again visit the Suns. They previously visited Phoenix on 12-21-17 which resulted in a Suns win. If all goes according to plan, Devin Booker may return for this game. This should help the Suns who have had problems getting off to slow starts.

    The game is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Arizona time and it will be televised on FSAZ.

    The Grizzlies beat the Clippers in Memphis 115-112 on Sunday.

    Here is more from a Scott Bordow article dated 12-25-17.

    Totally agree. He should not be playing if there is the slightest question mark.

    For what it's worth, Jay Triano can record win No. 100 as head coach tonight. Would be first Canadian-born coach to get to 100

    Booker opens up the game hitting his first shot for 2 points.

    Well, we all received an extra Christmas present. DBook is back.

    I just hope they cut back on his minutes a tad. I read that might have contributed to the injury.

    Len is looking like Len but this is a good thing these days.

    He has 4 points, 1 rebound and 2 assists in five minutes.

    Chriss is showing flashes tonight.

    He has 4 points and 6 rebounds but his controlled aggressiveness is what impresses me. Chriss is challenging lots of shots tonight.

    Booker doesn't look like he's missed the last 2-3 weeks, which is good. Kind of hoping for a loss tonight only because Memphis is behind the Suns in the standings. They both have 23 losses but the Suns have 2 more wins.

    I've only caught the last 5-6 minutes or so but looking at the stats it seems like the starters are playing well while the bench has been lacking. At least it looks like that from the +/- with all of the bench in the negatives and the starters in the positive.
