Drew Eubanks will be OUT against the Grizzles as well as Yuta Watanabe.

The Suns are down four standard roster players.

It was bound to happen sooner or later. I wonder if this was a direct response to Bane being questionable too, for a chance for KD to get a rest game. The timing seems.... suspect.

Dang, is JJJ their only rotation player available? If Bane is out, that means 4 of their 5 starters are not playing.

I hope it's more about rest than injury.

I think Aladama and Zaire Williams are the only 'rotation' players from their optimal lineup that will play.

In other news, we may see another familiar face:

Not sure if they are cleared to play though.

Good grief that might be the most devastating injury report I have ever seen.

Basically we are playing a G-league team if Bane is out.

The Grizzlies add Shaq Harrison and Jaylen Nowell. Shaq Harrison is a familiar face.

No KD and we need to win by 30? I'd say that's not happening unless Book goes for 80 tonight!

Bismack signed to play against the Suns tonight!

Hopefully, not signing Biz does not come back to bite the Suns. I believe he has been with the Grizzlies for nine games.

I swear Desmond Bane has gotten W-I-D-E-R. He's starting to look like he can play the character Bane in a super hero movie!
