    On Saturday the Suns will finish their four game road trip in Houston.

    Rockets (14-7) beat the Raptors 119-109 in Toronto on Thursday.

    Suns (10-11) hope to reach .500 after defeating the Pelicans 139-132 in overtime in their last outing.

    Game time is 6 p.m. MST (Arizona time).

    It will be televised on FSAZ.

    Baynes is listed as doubtful for the Rockets game and Jerome is listed as probable.

    It's surprising to see Jerome's name on the injury report.

    Ty Jerome is back on the injury report. Same right ankle. He’s probable for tomorrow night’s game in Houston. Aron Baynes (left calf strain) is doubtful.

    I guess they need to be careful with Baynes. Calf-strain ending up in an Achilles is the path that KD traveled. Let it heal.

    First team to 140 wins!

    The way things are going for the Suns the over/under will probably be something like 260.

    So you're calling the game at halftime in favor of the Rockets?

    Yeah, let Baynes heal. Against the Rockets, you are only going to beat them if you are on fire, and they are not. Whether or not you have Baynes isn't gonna make any difference. Honestly, I would sit Baynes until Ayton returns. Then you get your entire center rotation back at 100%.

    If Baynes is 100% a game or two before Ayton returns, may as well play him. But, I get your point, and I agree we should be cautious.

    Suns and Wolves hold the 7th and 8th spots in the Western Conference respectively. The Thunder (9th) beat the Wolves tonight.

    I'd like Baynes to return sooner than later unless it is risky. I believe Monty said it would take 10 games for Ayton to get up to speed so it would probably be a smoother transition if Baynes returns earlier. It would be great if he can return for Monday's game with the Wolves.

    Only 5 more games before Ayton returns.

    Here is a link to the standings.

    Durant suffered a partial tear in the initial injury, that was never his calf. I still cannot believe how much of a pass the media gave them on that one. When it happened Durant grabbed at his heel, not his calf, everyone was thinking achilles, then the team, a few days later comes out and says calf... and Durant blows his achilles right after stepping back on the court.

    The Warriors medical staff either put the team above the player or screwed up in the worst ways imaginable. Given the Iggy stuff where they told him he had a strain when it was really broken bones and them having that one dude play with a broken collar bone... I lean towards the Warriors medical staff thinking 3-peat over anything else.

    Nonsense. Durant was cleared by the team doctors and his personal doctors. Nobody forced him to play.
