After losing the first two games of their four game home stand the Suns have a chance to right the ship when the Trail Blazers visit on Wednesday.

Trail Blazers are 25-36 and are 4-6 in their last ten games.

Suns are 49-12 and 8-2 in their last ten games.

The game will be televised on Bally Sports Arizona and ESPN.

Start time is scheduled for 8 p.m. Arizona time.

Suns play the Knicks on Friday before heading out on the road.

They play @ Bucks on Sunday, @ Magic on Tuesday and @ the Heat on Wednesday.

I suspect we will have gone 4-4 at the end of the heat game. Not promising post-cp3 injury as I suspect it means GS will likely have made up 2 more games on us (or 3). That would put us up 3-4 games with 16 left to play. Three games would be a slim enough margin to put the 1 seed at risk.

Cam Payne looking good shooting. He still has wrap on right wrist.

Cam Payne is participating but not on an NBA level of competition.

Monty gives goals for Payne to return to 5-on-5 competition.

So not for a while still.

It sounds like there is still pain in the right arm and Payne will need medical clearance.

Monty doesn't appear to have a lot of confidence in Payton so that leaves point Booker and Holiday. Meanwhile the available point guards are being snatched up.

I wonder if Torrey Craig knows something we don't know. Cam Payne returning tomorrow?

I really don’t get is sitting on our hands once CP3 went out with injury, especially considering Payton sucks a golf ball through a garden hose and Payne’s injury continues to be a mysterious lingering problem.

Lol... or maybe not!

We need Payne back. I think we are going to have a Devil of a time retaining the 1 seed if he’s out another couple weeks

Torrey's comments aren't quite the same as Monty's comments. I guess we shall see.

It sounds like Torrey Craig knew what he was talking about regarding Cam Payne.

Also Monty says the day off helped Aaron Holiday's ankle.
