The Phoenix Suns have been without their most notable acquisition of the offseason in star guard Bradley Beal for 19 of their 22 games this season.

He has been listed as having a low back strain for most of these missed games and is now set to return tomorrow, being taken off the injury report completely.

Beal missed the first seven games of the season due to this back issue, which he suffered in the preseason, then came back for the next three. However, he re-aggravated the injury in the first half of the Suns’ game vs. the Thunder on Nov. 12, but played through it the rest of the game. He ended up missing the next contest against the Timberwolves and was later ruled out for at least the next three weeks on Nov. 17.

When questioned about what exactly is his injury today, Beal did not have much to say.

“It was more than a strain,” Beal said. “I can’t give you all the details or we’d be here all day.”

Earlier in the press conference, Beal was asked if it was tough to sit down or sleep.

“All of the above,” Beal said. “Backs are frustrating.”


Overall, however, Beal gave a lot of good answers about how excited he was to return and how difficult this process was to overcome.

Beal is set to play tomorrow for the first time all season with Devin Booker. Kevin Durant (left ankle sprain) is questionable for the matchup after being limited in practice today.

Tomorrow’s game tips off at 8 p.m. MST.
