Since joining the Phoenix Suns a couple of months ago, Bradley Beal has faced a series of setbacks, limiting his participation to just five full games due to various injuries.

The most recent of these occurred on December 15th during a game against the New York Knicks, when Beal suffered a right ankle sprain, forcing him to exit the game early in the 1st quarter.

Encouragingly, recent reports, notably from Shams, suggest that Beal is on track for a return as early as this weekend.

Shams also addressed the recent speculation surrounding the Suns and Kevin Durant’s alleged frustration amid the team’s struggles. As Shams pointed out, this type of frustration is common among any player whose team is playing below expectations.

In response to these claims, Durant dispelled any notion of disengagement by delivering an outstanding performance on Wednesday night against the Rockets. Durant recorded his first triple-double in a Suns uniform, tying a career-high with 16 assists, leading the Suns to a win.

Playing a large role in holding Phoenix back this season has been their inability to remain healthy. With Bradley Beal now expected to return shortly, brighter days are surely ahead for the Suns.
