    Monday the Suns begin a two game home stretch with the Spurs and then play the Pacers on Wednesday.

    Spurs (18-23) beat the Heat today in San Antonio 107-102. They are 5-5 over their last 10 games.

    Suns (18-24) try to make it three wins in a row after victories on the road against the Knicks and Celtics. Over a 10 game stretch the Suns are 6-4.

    The Spurs are a half game ahead of the Suns in the playoff race in the Western Conference.

    Suns play the Spurs again on Friday. This time on the road.

    Game time is 7 p.m. MST (Arizona time).

    It will be televised on FSAZ.

    I will repeat the injury report because the above tweet is not showing up at the moment.

    Kelly Oubre Jr. is probable for tomorrow's game at home against the Spurs. He's missed the last two games after being in concussion protocol.

    Cam Johnson (quad bruise) is questionable and Aron Baynes (left hip soreness) is doubtful.

    Derozan is my number 1 trade target.we don’t need a PF we need another perimeter player who can initiate the offense when Booker isn’t in the game. When he goes the bench the numbers are insane.

    We need a PF and a backup PG. The wing positions are the only places where we actually have depth, Derozan would be redundant and would not be at all happy about being a reserve.

    We desperately need not one, but two, power forwards. That being said, I could see the benefit of adding someone like DeRozan if it doesn't cost us Booker or Ayton.

    I would still focus on the likes of Aaron Gordon, Thaddeus Young, Julius Randle, Bobby Portis, Myles Turner, LaMarcus Aldridge, John Collins and Derrick Favors.

    Monty Williams remains hopeful Kelly Oubre Jr. will be able to return tonight vs. San Antonio (officially listed as probable). Oubre talked about the steps of concussion protocol, including playing a computerized “Memory”-style card game (flipping over one-by-one to match) #Suns

    This is one of those times where I hate how this board trims the URL. Not sure if it's the same for everyone but this is how it looks for me...

    I wouldn't need to click it if it said the whole thing, which is "kelly oubre jr slated to return for suns vs spurs after concussion" with hyphens in between words instead of spaces.

    Hopefully Kelly does return. Surely Popovich has gameplans to stop Ayton and Booker already so having a 3rd scorer will help tremendously.

    IMO, the training staff shouldn't have allowed Oubre to continue playing. That was a pretty good hit.

    Headed to the game tonight. So far 1-0 this season when I’m at the game...hopefully 2-0 after tonight.
