Dario Saric Headshot

Dario Saric will remain starting PF ahead of Ersan Ilyasova on Saturday.

Added 11/04/16 1:55 pm (EST)   Source
Saric is averaging just over 28 minutes per game but has been inconsistent from the field to start the season. The rookie presents tremendous upside and potential and should continue to get better as the season goes on. If he's available in your league, he should be owned.
Brandon Ingram Headshot

Ingram is dealing with tendinitis in his right knee and is considered probable for Friday's matchup with the Timberwolves, Tania Ganguli of The Las Angeles Times reports.

Added 3:36 pm (EST)
Ingram was forced to exit practice early Thursday but the team doesn't appear overly concerned about his injury at this time. If he winds up being held out or limited on Thursday look for Corey Brewer and Larry Nance to see some extra minutes.
Larry Sanders Headshot

Sanders was recalled Thursday from the D-League's Canton Charge, Jason Lloyd of The Athletic reports.

Added 3:14 pm (EST)
Sanders saw his first action with the Charge on Saturday, posting two points (0-2 FG, 2-4 FT), one rebound and three blocks over 12 minutes. He also picked up five fouls, so it wasn't necessarily the best debut. The Cavaliers continue to try and get Sanders minutes in order to get his conditioning in order after a two-year hiatus from the NBA, so it wouldn't be surprising if he continues to alternate between the two rosters. That said, after being recalled, Sanders should be available off the bench for Friday's game against the Hornets, although his role will likely be very limited.
Omer Asik Headshot

Asik has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Rockets.

Added 2:52 pm (EST)
Asik is still dealing with the lingering effects of a bacterial infection and will miss yet another game, as he's been sidelined since the All-Star break. He's yet to be given any timetable for a return and should continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis. His next opportunity to take the court will be Sunday against the Nuggets.
Ronnie Price Headshot

Price (leg) is listed as questionable for Thursday's tilt with the Nets.

Added 1:52 pm (EST)
Price has missed the last two games with a lower left leg contusion and is in danger of missing a third straight on Thursday. He'll continue to receive treatment throughout the day with the hope of being cleared against the Nets, but if he can't give it a go, Leandro Barbosa could pick up some extra minutes behind starting point guard Tyler Ulis.
T.J. Warren Headshot

Warren is listed as questionable with a bruised left foot in the game notes for Thursday's matchup with the Nets.

Added 1:47 pm (EST)
This is the first we've heard of the injury for Warren, so the Suns could have just added him to the report as a precautionary measure. That said, it will be a situation to monitor moving forward and he'll likely test the foot out during pregame warmups before giving a final word on his availability. If Warren is ultimately held out, Derrick Jones would likely pick up the start in his place, while Jared Dudley could pick up some extra minutes off the bench.
David Lee Headshot

Lee (foot) is officially listed as probable for Thursday's matchup with the Grizzlies, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.

Added 1:36 pm (EST)
Following an absence from Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves, it was reported that Lee expected to return to the court Thursday, so his official listing as probable is only further evidence he plans on playing. Look for him to jump back into the lineup as the backup to LaMarcus Aldridge at power forward, likely affording him minutes in the mid-to-upper teens, thus limiting his overall impact in the boxscore.
Alan Williams Headshot

Williams (illness) expects to play Thursday against the Nets, Doug Haller of the Arizona Republic reports.

Added 12:22 pm (EST)
Williams has been battling a stomach issue for the last few days, and the ailment kept him out of action Tuesday in Miami. However, he said he's feeling better as of Thursday morning and anticipates returning against the Nets. In the month of March, Williams, a former D-Leaguer, is averaging 13.1 points and 10.5 rebounds in 25.6 minutes per game.
Wayne Ellington Headshot

Ellington's status is up in the air for Thursday's game against Toronto following the birth of his child Wednesday night.

Added 12:01 pm (EST)
Ellington was not present at shootaround Thursday morning, but the hope is that he'll rejoin the team in time for Thursday night's contest. If that's not the case, some combination of Tyler Johnson, Rodney McGruder and Josh Richardson would absorb his vacated minutes.
Hassan Whiteside Headshot

Whiteside (finger) went through shootaround and still intends to play Thursday against Toronto.

Added 11:54 am (EST)
While coach Erik Spoelstra noted that Whiteside has limited use of his right hand, it appears as though the center is preparing to take the court Thursday night. Whiteside smashed his fingers into the bottom of the backboard late in Tuesday's game, causing him to exit the contest and receive 13 stitches.
Paul Millsap Headshot

Millsap (knee) will not play Friday against Milwaukee, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Added 10:45 am (EST)
A sore knee will keep Millsap out of his fourth straight game, as the pressure begins to build for the Hawks, who have dropped their last five games and eight of their last 11. In MIllsap's absence, expect Ersan Ilyasova to make another start at power forward against his former team. In Wednesday's loss to the Wizards, Ilyasova played 26 minutes and finished with five points and eight rebounds.
