Phoenix Suns • #20 • C

  • Nurkic is questionable for Friday’s game against Minnesota with left calf soreness, Gerald Bourguet of reports.This is a new issue for Nurkic, but the questionable tag suggests that he’s day-to-day. If Nurkic is unable to suit up, the Suns could turn to Drew Eubanks and Bol Bol to soak up some frontcourt minutes.
  • Suns’ Grayson Allen: Probable for Friday Allen (hip) is probable for Friday’s game against Minnesota, Kellan Olson of reports.Allen missed Wednesday’s game against the Cavaliers due to left hip soreness, but he’ll likely be able to return following a one-game absence. Over his last five appearances, he’s averaged 10.2 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 31.0 minutes per game.
  • Suns’ Bol Bol: Impresses from bench with 15 points Bol recorded 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist, two blocks and two steals over 22 minutes during Wednesday’s 122-101 win over Cleveland.Bol played despite nursing an ankle injury and logged his second-best scoring total of the season. The 7-2 big man decided to show his range in the win with a season-high three three-pointers. He displayed his flair beyond the arc last season with Orlando, and it’s an added dimension that Jusuf Nurkic can’t provide at the five. Although Bol’s evening won’t result in a switch for the first unit, Bol’s role will likely increase if he stays consistent.
  • Suns’ Kevin Durant: Pours in 32 points Durant totaled 32 points (13-23 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, seven assists and one steal over 36 minutes during Wednesday’s 122-101 victory over the Cavaliers.Durant and Devin Booker scored over 30 points in the same game, which has only occurred twice this season. While Durant is averaging 27.5 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 5.2 assists this season, the Suns need more nights like Wednesday’s performance if the Suns hope to make headway in the playoffs. It’s time for the Suns to deliver on their potential, and it’ll be up to Durant to shoulder his load alongside Booker and Bradley Beal.
