The Suns just are not the same without Book in terms of easy midrange buckets. Also, in terms of Ayton? As much as I like McGee and as much as we like to complain about what Ayton doesn't do? It's been obvious the difference without him in there. I hope the team is at full strength soon.

I have not heard an update this morning. However, I am suspect it not was as "minor" as the Suns said it was. Maybe it is and they are just being extra careful with the lead they built up during the streak. I hope so because he looked like he came up pretty lame on that leg. We will find out soon how severe. If it was just a regular pull, he shouldn't have any issues. If he keeps repulling it? It's likely to last the entire season and will need extensive rest.

The Suns miss Ayton, no doubt about it, but it's like the Suns have gone from four centers including Smith, down to one, McGee. So this helps explain the situation upfront.

The Suns miss Booker but he needs to recover from his hamstring injury as best he can so it doesn't linger all season long. I haven't heard a timeline on Booker's return but it should be within the next few games.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Suns make a roster move soon.

The Suns remain with a skeleton crew tonight in Portland. Deandre Ayton is QUESTIONABLE.

Booker, Nader, Kaminsky and Smith remain OUT.

Kind of weird to send Hutchinson back to the G-League with all of the current injuries. Not that he'd see a lot of time but having that extra body would help, even in practice. Hopefully that means someone is returning soon.

I thought that was interesting as well. Do you know if Hutchison can be traded on a two-way contract?

I didn't think two-way contracts can be traded but the ESPN Trade Machine allows me to do it.

Big man’s got to get back in there. What kind of illness keeps you out for six days?
