    There is a chance Rubio may not play tomorrow.

    Monty Williams said he's not sure if Ricky Rubio will play tomorrow. Said Rubio felt fine yesterday but didn't feel right today.

    It's early in the season and these things happen.

    That being said . . . damn!

    There is no way we should lose to the Kings.

    Except for no Rubio. Book didn't bring the
    ball up, but he was expected to do it all.

    And we saw the results. Even against the
    best team in the league.

    There is no way the Suns team that we've seen since the 2nd half of the Warriors game can do anything but lose to these Kings. Sacramento started out horribly but they are playing much better ball than we are right now. And it's not even close IMO. Hopefully, we won't be the same team we've been of late but I'll believe that when we see it. We still have just a limited number of true rotation players and if we're playing without 2 of our best starters, we're in a lot of trouble.

    It should be noted the Kings have been playing without Fox and Bagley and beat the Celtics on Monday.

    Hopefully the Suns match up better with the Kings but the way the Suns played against the Celtics, it's not looking so good at the moment especially if Rubio doesn't play.

    Yeah in addition to beating the Celtics on Sunday they also have recent wins against Portland, Atlanta, New York and Utah. And in their recent losses they've come up just short at the Lakers by 2 and by 4 at the Raptors. They are 5-2 in their last 7 games and like I said, their losses have been very close road games. They just aren't the same team that opened up with 5 losses, most of them double digit blowouts.

    So, it looks like Oubre at the 3, Booker at the 1,2,4 and 5. That should work.

    Uh oh! Might as well just bring up the G-League
    team to play alongside Booker and Oubre. :)

    It looks like Lecque and Harper are still with the NAZ Suns.

    Suns’ game notes have Harper and Lecque still with NAZ

    Yeah, the Suns have been a model of durability in recent years...

    Kellen Olson said on The Rundown that Baynes is out and Rubio is a game time decision. No Baynes makes things much more difficult.


    *Edit - Originally I said he was on Doug & Wolf but I guess the show is called The Rundown. Whatever was on before the Suns coverage started on 98.7.
