Suns Injuries

Perhaps the Suns’ best two performers this preseason, Josh Okogie and Grayson Allen, will be resting against the Blazers.

Damion Lee (right knee meniscus) and Ish Wainright (right calf strain) are also out for the Phoenix Suns. Drew Eubanks (left ankle sprain) is out as well after injuring his ankle last game.

Jordan Goodwin (right hamstring tightness) will play his first game tonight for the Suns. Lee, Wainright and Goodwin have missed the team’s first two preseason games.
