The Suns need to get some players back. Please, no Bol Bol on Wednesday.

I think, even to Bol's most bullish fans, the veil was pulled off tonight. That 4 minute stretch was one of the worst individual efforts of NBA basketball I've ever seen. On offense he either stood in the corner, waiting to miss a 3, or he got in the way. On defense... wow... that was a virtuoso performance of incompetence. Didn't box anyone out, a really stupid foul on Thompson's jumper, double teaming harmless guys off the ball, left multiple guys wide open for 3 and even had Chris Paul, and his 2 inch elevation, drill a 3 over him. Topped it off by losing his man in transition for an easy ally-oop (and even got away with an obvious foul on the dunk).

Barring extreme emergency, I don't think he will see a minute outside of garbage time again this year.

Should anyone become available as a free agent, I fully expect that Bol is the first guy on the chopping block.

PS, I have seen people think we are going to use him as trade bait... he has ZERO trade value, less than zero. He is, at best, salary fodder, as a piece alone he is not worth his minimum contract.

The Suns would most likely waive Bol Bol if they move on or include him in a trade to make salaries work with another player.

Of course, the Suns have few assets to trade.

Looking forward to see how the crowd takes to Mikal and Cam. There will undoubtedly be cheers, but will there be cheers for them through the whole game?

This seems very unique vs other players returning to Phoenix, although I did hear cheers for Chris Paul last night, even late in the game.

They’ll get a nice welcome back, but I’d be surprised at anything beyond that.

Here is the injury report for tonight. I sure hope Durant plays. He is PROBABLE.

Nassir Little is QUESTIONABLE.

Allen and Okogie remain OUT.

It does look like the Suns three stars may play but I'm crossing my fingers.

This is what Shams Charania is posting. Seeing the Big 3 tonight is looking more and more promising.

I think they're going to get as loud of an applause as anyone. I also think they'll do a highlight video for each during the game (they did the same for Paul and Ayton earlier). I'd bet they will get a fair amount of applause throughout the game... maybe it will die off in the 4th if the game is close.

I still see as many Bridges jerseys as anyone's around the arena, probably second only to Booker.
