Phoenix Suns Roster

Phoenix Suns guard Bradley Beal (hamstring) is listed as probable for their game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The star combo guard played in their last game on Saturday against the Houston Rockets but he was only able to play 20 minutes. In that time, he registered just seven points, two rebounds, two assists, and two turnovers while shooting 3-for-6 from the floor. It's unclear how many minutes he'll receive in this matchup but with Devin Booker (ankle) ruled out, they'll need contributions from Beal to get a win over a very good Thunder team. Grayson Allen and Eric Gordon will likely play big roles if Beal can't put it in a full workload.
Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker (ankle) won't play on Sunday versus OKC. He injured his ankle and exited Saturday's loss to the Houston Rockets and didn't return, so most had already planned to be without him. Although X-rays were negative, fantasy managers should expect the 27-year-old to miss at least a few games. Luckily for Phoenix, Bradley Beal (hamstring) and Jusuf Nurkic (neck) are both expected to suit up on Sunday night, which certainly helps lessen the blow caused by Booker's absence. But it should also mean additional scoring opportunities for Eric Gordon, who has averaged 15.6 points when Booker isn't in the lineup this season.
Phoenix Suns center Jusuf Nurkic (neck) is listed as probable ahead of Sunday night's showdown with OKC. The Suns recently listed their official injury designations, and Nurkic is on the report because of neck spasms. Fortunately, it doesn't appear it will be enough to keep the 29-year-old off the court. However, things happen, so Bol Bol and Drew Eubanks could get more minutes if Nurkic suffers a setback before opening tip.
Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker (ankle) was forced to exit late in the fourth quarter during Friday's game against the Houston Rockets. Booker caught his foot on Royce O'Neale and rolled his ankle with roughly a minute left in the game. He limped back to the locker room to undergo further testing. Luckily, the X-rays came back negative, which means Booker shouldn't miss an extended period. The Suns play the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday. It's unlikely that Booker is going to be available for that one. O'Neale will likely benefit the most if Booker is forced to miss time.
Phoenix Suns guard Eric Gordon (groin) has been ruled out ahead of Saturday's game against the Houston Rockets. Gordon continues to be sidelined due to a lingering groin issue. He will be joined by Nassir Little (knee) during Saturday's game. The absence of Gordon should mean more playing time for Royce O'Neale. He'll be bounced to the second unit with Bradley Beal back in the picture. O'Neale won't be as appealing off the bench, but should still have some streaming value in deep leagues.
