Suns have won their last two games over the Bulls and Jazz. They are 4-6 over the past ten games.

The game will be televised on FSAZ.

Start time is scheduled for 7 p.m. MST (Arizona time).

Kelly Oubre (right knee) is ruled out for the game.

These injuries are weird. They'll have played the whole game then the report comes out, all while not hearing anything on why and when it happened. Was it during the game, a lingering issue, during practice...?

In regard to Oubre being out.

No further update on Kelly Oubre Jr. from Monty Williams. Said the information coming in is still “fluid” and they will have an update later.

Monty Williams said during shootaround availability that Dario Saric (as expected) will start tonight for the injured Kelly Oubre Jr. Monty did not have a timetable on Oubre’s injury, and said he found out about it yesterday. #Suns

Suns finally find an effective rotation and there it goes out the window again. Injuries and suspension have played a huge role in the Suns not gaining traction in the playoff race this season.

Not encouraging.

There was a play last game where I thought he landed funny on a dunk, knock kneed, but he seemed totally fine after.

Actually I have noticed he was not walking quite right for the last 4 games - starting with the game against GS. May not be related, but I am guessing this is due to general knee discomfort. Probably has stuff floating around in his knee.

This is not sounding as good as I had hoped about Kelly's knee injury.

Ricky Rubio is wearing Oubre's practice jersey.

Damn man. They just can’t seem to catch a break on injuries. Losing Oubre for an extended period would be a tough pill to swallow.

Going forward Booker and Ayton have to score 30 a game to make up for Oubre loss. Otherwise we are looking for Bridges, Saric, or somenw like that to start scoring an extra 10-15+ points a game to make up for the scoring loss. If the Suns are really going to make a playoff run. I just have this bad feeking Oubre is out the rest of the way.

Anytime you hear an athlete is getting opinions and figuring out options...it’s typically because it’s bad.
