Phoenix Suns veteran guard Eric Gordon will return from a two-game absence for tonight’s matchup against the Indiana Pacers, according to the team’s injury report.

Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!

The 35-year-old had missed two straight games due to right wrist soreness and was originally listed as questionable for tonight. The Suns (26-18) enter tonight having won seven straight and have been rolling as a collective.

However, Gordon has been struggling since the start of 2024, as has only made eight of his last 39 3-point attempts (20.5%).

As reported yesterday, Bol Bol (right foot sprain) will miss his seventh game, but coach Frank Vogel has said his injury is not long term. Damion Lee remains out after undergoing right meniscus surgery in the offseason.

Tyrese Haliburton, who leads the league in assists and was named an NBA All-Star starter yesterday, will be out for Indiana (25-20), as he is set to be re-evaluated Saturday with left hamstring strain injury management.

The only other player on the Pacers’ injury report is Jalen Smith, who was listed as questionable with low back spams. Coach Rick Carlisle said he is hopeful Smith will play.

These two teams squared less than a week ago, on Sunday, as the Suns beat the Pacers 117-110. Haliburton did not play in this matchup either, so Phoenix fans won’t get to see the team play against the star point guard this season. Smith, the former Sun, shot a perfect 5-for-5 from the floor, totaling 15 points on Sunday. Gordon went 0-for-5 from three in this game.

Tonight’s game tips off at 5 p.m. MST.
