Marquese Chriss    PF  Suns

 

 

Chriss (ankle) is available to play in Wednesday's game against the Mavericks. Chriss sat out the team's last contest with a sprained left ankle, but after testing in out during warmups, he's been given the go ahead to make a return to the court. While nothing official has been released, Chriss will likely take back his spot in the starting lineup at power forward, which would send Dragan Bender back to a bench role. Also, with both Greg Monroe (undisclosed) and Alex Len (ankle) sitting out, Chriss could be forced into extended minutes in the frontcourt despite being fresh off an injury.

Marquese Chriss    F  Suns

 

 

Marquese Chriss is available to play against the Mavs on Wednesday. It sounds like he is going start after missing one game. Chriss was playing well before his hip injury earlier this month and this ankle injury cost him a game. Hopefully, it won't take too long for him to get going again.

Greg Monroe    C  Suns

 

 

Monroe is unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks, John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports. Monroe isn't even with the team for Wednesday's tilt, sparking rumors that a contract buyout could be coming in the near future for the big man. He's been solid when given playing time, averaging 11.2 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists across 23.2 minutes per game. Tyson Chandler and Marquese Chriss (ankle) are both candidates to see expanded roles with Monroe and Alex Len (ankle) both unavailable.

Greg Monroe    C  Suns

 

 

Greg Monroe is not in the arena for Wednesday and a buyout could be coming, according to John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7. It's trade deadline season. Alex Len is not going to play tonight, so we may have some Alec Peters on our hands tonight -- that's if Marquese Chriss can't go. As for Monroe, it was just a matter of time before he was off this roster and chances are his value will be taking a hit.

Marquese Chriss    F  Suns

 

 

Marquese Chriss (ankle) will be a game-time decision against the Mavs on Saturday. His ankle injury didn't look too bad over the weekend, but the Suns held him out on Monday. If he's out, Dragan Bender and Jared Dudley would benefit.

Devin Booker    SG  Suns

 

 

Booker (ribs) has been cleared to play in Wednesday's game against the Mavericks, Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic reports. Booker was held out of Monday's game against the Grizzlies, but an X-ray has since cleared him of anything serious. After taking part in pregame warmups without any glaring issues, the medical staff has officially given Booker the green light to return, so look for him to take back his spot in the starting lineup. The Suns aren't currently reporting any restrictions, so barring any in-game setbacks, Booker should see his typical workload. Isaiah Canaan is the likely candidate to head back to a bench role, with guys like Tyler Ulis and Josh Jackson also losing minutes.

Devin Booker    G  Suns

 

 

Devin Booker (rib) will start vs. Dallas on Wednesday night. This is one of the more surprising stories of the day with Booker having a tender ribcage. Coach Jay Triano hasn't committed to to where Booker will start, and he has said he's more concerned about the defense of that first unit. Either way, go ahead and get him back in your lineup while Tyler Ulis and Isaiah Canaan take a hit.

Tyson Chandler    C  Suns

 

 

Chandler is expected to return to action after resting for Monday's game against Memphis. The Suns haven't explicitly issued an update on Chandler's status, but he's not listed on the injury report in the team's game notes, implying that he'll return to availability. In Sunday's loss to Houston, Chandler played 30 minutes and finished with 11 points and 15 rebounds. His role has varied, however, and it's unclear, exactly, how the Suns will split minutes between Chandler and Greg Monroe at center.

Alex Len    C  Suns

 

 

Alex Len (ankle) will not play on Wednesday against the Mavs. Not much of a surprise here with Len dealing with his ankle, which was a major problem earlier in his career. That means Greg Monroe will be in the rotation again and we could see some Dragan Bender at the five. If you need games, Len is a possible drop candidate.
