Does anyone know - if the Suns don't make the in-season tournament, do they play in that stretch at all?

Found the answer:

During the Knockout Rounds on days when In-Season Tournament games are not scheduled (Wednesday, Dec. 6 and Friday, Dec. 8), the 22 teams that do not qualify for the Knockout Rounds will each play two regular-season games.



So the Suns will play two games in that stretch that count, so Beal is guaranteed to miss 5 more games, before re-evaluation

I was wondering this as well, took me a while to find the answer but apparently there are games being played. From:https://www.nba.com/news/in-season-tournament-frequently-asked-questions

> Why are there two games labeled as “TBD” on each team’s 2023-24 regular-season schedule?
Every team will play two regular-season games (including the In-Season Tournament Quarterfinals and Semifinals for qualifying teams) during the week of Dec. 4. The 22 teams that do not qualify for the Knockout Rounds will play two regular-season games during tournament off nights that week (Dec. 6 & 8). The four teams that lose in the Quarterfinals will play a regular-season game on Dec. 8.
Edit: Beat me to it!

What do you mean "that count"? I thought all the games counted it's just a matter of how they are scheduled if you don't have any other tournament games?! Is that not correct? I have not read the above yet.

If they make it to the championship game of the IST, that game doesn't count in the standings.

Ahhh....thanks. Had not read that tidbit.

Pretty sure that winning team gets $1m checks across the board and losing team gets $500k checks for that game. Coaches get half that, so $500k each for winning and $250k for losing. So adding just 1 game, with a significant payday, isn't bad. I also think they get 1 less game in April because of how the league is scheduling things, which could be beneficial for anyone making a playoff push.

Everybody gets KD checks, basically. He makes $47 million a year so he'd make $573k a game, if he played in all 82. So I understand the incentive across the board.

I would grudgingly accept that... if someone absolutely forced me to, I mean.

Even worse, he's the beat writer for the Suns from the AZ Republic/AZ Family. Come a long way from Paul Coro.

Paul Coro was my favorite Suns beat writer, at least in recent times.

I give Duane Rankin credit, he travels with the team.

He provides a lot of information in real time we might not otherwise have and that other writers get second hand.

I've come to appreciate his effort.

And Duane isn't afraid to ask tough questions - he's respectful af but he's still going to ask

I was just thinking that we haven’t seen beal play a full healthy game yet. I hope he’s not back until he’s 110%

Hopefully, they can get Beal to a point he can play most of the remaining season. If this is a structural issue with his back it's not going away. However, the Suns sure could use him right now.

They've said all along that it's not a structural issue.

Good description of what the problem might be (we don't know for sure since the Suns are tight lipped about it), but it's an interesting watch regardless.

All along it hasn't been a structural issue.

Anyone think Beal will play more games than Danny Manning did in 1994?
