Ahead of Tuesday’s season opener at Golden State, the Phoenix Suns are dealing with some minor injuries.

According to coach Frank Vogel, Devin Booker and Bradley Beal were limited in practice today. Beal is still experiencing lower back tightness, which kept him out of the team’s preseason finale Thursday, while Booker has a sore toe. Booker also missed this last game due to rest.

Vogel said that Beal started experiencing back tightness in Palm Springs where the Suns played the Lakers Thursday. Beal also missed the team’s third preseason game in Portland against the Trail Blazers due to back tightness.

Vogel would not specify more on Booker’s injury. It seems as if these injuries are minor and should not keep these two stars out for Tuesday’s game.

Vogel explained some more of his mindset when it comes to injuries:

“(I) make all decisions on all injuries on a case by case basis,” Vogel said. “I’m a pro-play guy if guys are healthy, but if guys are dinged up, and we have to manage certain injuries, you manage them case by case.”
