    On Saturday the Suns wrap up their three game road in Boston to face the Celtics.

    Celtics (27-13) are 5-5 over their last 10 games and have lost their last two games to the Pistons and Bucks respectively.

    Suns (17-24) would like to finish the road trip above .500 after beating the Knicks on Thursday but winning in Boston will be a tough order.

    The game will start at 5 p.m. MST (Arizona time).

    It will be televised on FSAZ.

    Kelly Oubre remains out. Cam Johnson is questionable.

    Kelly Oubre Jr. remains out for tomorrow's game in Boston due to concussion protocol. Cam Johnson (quad bruise) is questionable.

    Our wings are going to be pretty small if both Oubre and Cam are out. Rubio, Booker and Bridges are fine out of the gate, but the bench rotation of Okobo and I'm guessing Tyler Johnson are going to be a problem on the defensive end.

    I'm not sure how it would work in regard to match-ups but the Suns could bring up another big body in Tariq Owens.

    Is Tacko Fall playing? Those monstrosity type players really bother Ayton.

    I'm pretty sure he's not a regular part of their rotation but with the matchup they might have him come in

    Kelly Oubre remains with the Suns on the three game road trip which ends today.

    Kelly Oubre Jr. will miss his second consecutive game tonight while going through concussion protocol, but he remains with the #Suns on this trip. He was at shootaround this morning working with training staff.

    What’s crappy is that it took a concussion to move Bridges into the starting rotation. Just seems like a no brainer to play your best people the most minutes.

    They need to kick Saric out when Oubre gets back. No reason not to run that great closing lineup at the start of the game. We would have a good chance at getting out to a good start.

    No Kemba. Momentum from last game. This feels winnable. Come on suns!
