The Phoenix Suns will be without a handful of key pieces during their matchup against the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.
For starters, Frank Vogel announced that Kevin Durant will not be available as he is dealing with an ankle injury.
This will be Durant’s third game missed this season. When healthy, he is averaging 31 points and 6.5 rebounds per game.
Grayson Allen has also been listed as out as he is dealing with a groin injury. Just like Durant, this will be Allen’s third missed game this season.
Against the Lakers on Tuesday, Allen scored 21 points on 14 shots. He is currently on pace to break a career high in points, rebounds, and assists per game.
Lastly, Bradley Beal will remain out with his back injury. The last time Beal played a game with the Suns was all the way back on November 12th. Friday will mark Beal’s 19th game missed this season.
However, the good news is that Beal was a full participant at practice on Thursday.
Frank Vogel noted that he wants Bradley Beal to practice a couple more times at full speed before he sees the court in a game.
The tipoff for the Suns matchup against the Kings on Friday will be at 8 p.m. inside the Footprint Center.
