This doesn't sound good at all.

Am expecting another L. Let's see if they can play a whole game like the second half.

LOL. This season is comical.
The injuries to the big three aren’t that surprising, although it’s a bit much to be SOOO predictable. But it’s all the small supporting players missing twosies and foursies of games in addition the big 3 games missed that makes it absolutely ridiculous.

Suns’ Kevin Durant is questionable vs. Heat along with Eric Gordon, Nassir Little​


Forward Kevin Durant is listed as questionable with a hamstring strain for the Phoenix Suns’ hosting of the Miami Heat on Friday.

Guard Eric Gordon (right knee soreness) and wing Nassir Little (left knee soreness) are both questionable while Damion Lee (meniscus surgery) remains out.

For the Heat, Jimmy Butler (toe) will be out, joining teammates Haywood Highsmith (concussion), Dru Smith (knee) and Orlando Robinson (G League assignment). Caleb Martin (ankle) is doubtful.

Outside of Beal missing most of the games instead of only 40-50%, the injury rate isn't much of a surprise given the history of these dudes.

The Heat can play shorthanded and win. They won at the Lakers without Jimmy Butler.

I can't say the same thing for the Suns.

Kevin Durant is working with the strength and conditioning coach instead of getting up shots after morning shootaround.

Unless the Suns come up with some magic, tonight looks like another loss.
