    Here is the Suns injury report. Damian Jones, Dario Saric and Jalen Smith are OUT.

    Cam Payne is QUESTIONABLE.

    Jalen Smith has been out for 14 days. Hopefully he will be available this weekend.

    They can't say whether he had it or not, just that he came in contact with someone who had it. After missing 14 days though I think its fair to assume he had it because the league doesn't require that long of a quarantine if you just came in contact with it.

    Suns have to play to their peak to win no matter the opponent. We have been humbled.

    there’s no excuse to lose to this terrible Houston team. They won’t even have John Wall.

    Denver on a back to back is tough though.

    I have a slightly different view on this. I care more about the details now with this team, rather than the outcome. Obviously I care if they win, but I want to see sustained aggression from DA, better shot selection and taking care of the ball from Booker, and defensive effort/intensity similar to the start of the year for the rest of the team. If Phoenix won because they got crazy hot from 3 it would potentially mask these issues.

    Agreed. A team in turmoil...... We should EXPECT a win.

    But the same could be said about Memphis as well. I expect a close game for no reason and a tight victory for the good guys.

    Looks like Jalen Smith has been cleared and back in Phoenix although he will not play tonight.

    This is great news.
