Open Thread: Nine men dress versus desperate Atlanta Hawks

Open Thread: Nine men dress versus desperate Atlanta Hawks

The Suns hope for the best in Atlanta. With Devin Booker out, that leaves only the starters (with Derrick Jones in Booker’s place), Jarrell Eddie, Alan Williams, Jared Dudley and Leandro Barbosa healthy to play tonight. Unfortunately for the Hawks, their situation isn’t much better. They are without Paul Millsap and Thabo Sefolosha, two of their best players. Tonight should be interesting, or something close to it. Let’s talk.

Suns' Leandro Barbosa (hamstring) and Ronnie Price (bruise) will not play Sunday

Phoenix Suns guards Leandro Barbosa (hamstring) and Ronnie Price (left lower leg contusion) will not play on Sunday against the Charlotte Hornets. What It Means: Barbosa and Price will join Eric Bledsoe (rest), Brandon Knight (rest), Tyson Chandler (rest) on the shelf. This is Price's fifth game in a row on the shelf, meaning Tyler Ulis will continue to flirt with 40+ minutes on a nightly basis. We can also expect heavy workloads for Devin Booker the rest of the way. Our models project Ulis for 15.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 7.3 assists in 35.5 minutes...

Devin Booker is probable for Suns against Heat

Phoenix Suns guards Devin Booker (ankle) and Leandro Barbosa (illness) are on track to play Tuesday against the Miami Heat. What It Means: Booker missed one game with an ankle injury but it looks like he will return to the starting lineup on Tuesday. Derrick Jones Jr. will probably be the guy who heads back to the bench while Tyler Ulis will see a reduction in usage. Our models project Booker for 22.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists over 36.4 minutes against the Heat on Tuesday. Source: Rotoworld.com

Suns may be short in the backcourt again on Tuesday night

Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker (ankle), guard Leandro Barbosa (illness) and guard Ronnie Price (leg) are being listed as questionable for Tuesday's matchup with the Miami. What It Means: Derrick Jones Jr. moved into the starting five on Sunday with all three players unavailable, but he didn't do much of anything in over 26 minutes of action. Look for T.J. Warren and Tyler Ulis to lead Phoenix's offense on Tuesday if Booker, Barbosa and Price remain unavailable. Jones is averaging only 3.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 25.9 minutes per game as a starter this...

Forget the process, Suns master The Purge

Forget the process, Suns master The Purge

The Phoenix Suns have mothballed their oldest and best players, tanking hard for a draft pick. Let’s take a walk down short-term memory lane. Remember when the Phoenix Suns were overplaying their veterans, not giving the team’s youngest players enough run? That was only one month ago. On February 13, in a loss to the New Orleans Pelicans 110-108 at home, the last place 17-39 Suns gave their 30+ year old players (Tyson Chandler, P.J. Tucker, Leandro Barbosa and Jared Dudley) more than 85 minutes of game time, while the rookies (Marquese Chriss, Tyler Ulis and Derrick Jones Jr.) and Alan...

Shorthanded Phoenix Suns fall apart in 4th, lose 112-95 to Detroit Pistons

Shorthanded Phoenix Suns fall apart in 4th, lose 112-95 to Detroit Pistons

Phoenix had only eight players available When Alex Len broke the seal on the game by sinking a corner 3-pointer, it appeared that odd occurrence would be an omen for the rest of the game. Luckily for the Detroit Pistons, this particular omen wasn’t as permanent as they were in Julius Caesar. The Phoenix Suns made Detroit work for it through three quarters, but the Pistons pulled away from the shorthanded Suns in the 4th quarter on their way to a 112-95 win. The Suns entered this game with only eight available players, with Devin Booker (sore right ankle), Leandro Barbosa (illness), and...

Phoenix Suns to sign Jarell Eddie to 10-day contract

Phoenix Suns to sign Jarell Eddie to 10-day contract

In the past two days, the Phoenix Suns have shut down a pair of point guards - Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight - for the rest of the season. The only real point guard remaining on active duty is rookie Tyler Ulis. They are a bit short on big men too, given that Tyson Chandler is no longer going to play this year. The most well-stocked positions on the team at the moment are the swing positions: small forward (T.J. Warren and rookie Derrick Jones Jr.) and shooting guard (Devin Booker and Leandro Barbosa). So the Suns signed a swing man. The Phoenix Suns plan to sign forward Jarell Eddie of...

Leandro Barbosa's premature celebration shows why you should never believe in your friends

Dudley is 42 percent three-point shooter and can make perimeter triples in his sleep.Knowing that, Barbosa did what most Suns fans did: Anticipate a bucket. But Dudley bricked the three and sprinted back on defense. ...
