    The Suns play the second game of their four game road trip in Orlando on Wednesday when they face the Magic.

    Magic (8-11) are playing at the Wizards tonight. In their previous game they beat the Warriors at home on Sunday.

    Suns (9-10) beat the Hornets on Monday.

    Aron Baynes out for tomorrow night due to the left calf strain.

    Ricky Rubio (left hand) is questionable.

    A new one. Cheick Diallo (illness) is probable.

    I can't help but wonder if the Suns might start Ty Jerome if Rubio can't go. It's a lot to ask of a player who has only played in one game but he looked good.

    The Suns might prefer to start Carter and bring Jerome off the bench.

    I guess the Suns might look towards Tyler Johnson or Elie Okobo but they did not play in the Hornets game.

    I hope they start Jerome if Rubio can’t go

    With no interior defenders we are going to get slaughtered by the magic. They have a lot of bigs. I predict they’ll just mercilessly pound us inside. Our hope hinges on going bonkers from the three point line because we likely aren’t scoring inside much.

    I thought the Magic game was tonight and that was the reasoning for the tight rotation against the Hornets. I'm still surprised by Tyler Johnson's DNP-CD. If he was just a backup all year, fine, but Monty started him when Rubio was out just 2 weeks ago. I know he sucked in that role but going from temporary starter to out of the rotation is surprising. It's too early to think a trade is in the works. If it was closer to the 15th then maybe, but I'd be very surprised to see a trade before then.

    I read something the other day about how this is the longest it's been in over 50 years without a trade, excluding lockout seasons. Here's the article on that, for those interested. The Suns might do well to make a trade soon since they'll need to make adjustments to add Ayton into things anyway. They could get a jump on a playoff push by tweaking things a little more.

    I am 90% sure Vucevic is out, so it might not be as bad. Outside of Gordon, Orlando's remaining bigs are pretty challenged offensively. Oubre and Saric should be able to contain him.

    Vucevic is the one that really scares me, but we are probably fine if he isn't playing.

    Jerome is poised, they did call some cheap fouls on him though to welcome him to the nba. He handled it well and spoke with the refs in a composed manner.
