Durant was listed as questionable for tonight. Coach Frank Vogel then said the team wanted to see Durant test out his injury pregame, who added that he met with the medical team this morning. Now, he’s good to go. This will be only the fourth complete game that the Suns’ Big 3 will play together.

Durant is averaging 29.9 points, 6.3 rebounds and 6.0 assists, while leading the league in three-point percentage at 47.7% in the 28 games he has played this season. The Suns have a back-to-back, playing the Los Angeles Clippers tomorrow night, so it is unknown what Durant’s availability will be for this game.

The Suns revealed earlier that Eric Gordon will miss his second-straight game due to right knee soreness after originally being listed as questionable.

“It’s soreness, just waiting for it to calm down,” Vogel said of Gordon’s injury.

Ja Morant will be out tonight with left should soreness.

Morant was also questionable and ruled a game-time decision after playing in Memphis’ last five games. The Suns are 2-0 so far this season against the Grizzlies, but have not yet played them when they have Morant. Since getting Morant back from his 25-game suspension to begin the season, the Grizzlies are 6-3 in games he has played in vs. 6-20 overall when he doesn’t play.

Vince Williams Jr. will be available after he was also be a game-time decision for Memphis due to left foot soreness, which caused him to miss the last two games.

The Suns ruled out Bol Bol, who suffered a right ankle sprain in Friday’s victory over the Heat, Nassir Little (left knee soreness) and Damion Lee (right meniscus surgery) yesterday.

For the Grizzlies, they will also be without Derrick Rose (left hamstring strain), Steven Adams (right knee PCL surgery) and Brandon Clarke (left achilles tendon repair).

Tonight’s game tips of at 6 p.m. MST and is the final game of Phoenix’s six-game homestand.
