The Phoenix Suns (31-22) enter tomorrow night’s game against the Sacramento Kings completely healthy outside of Damion Lee.
Bradley Beal is listed as available with a nasal fracture, signifying he will wear a mask for another game. Beal suffered the injury Jan. 26 against the Indiana Pacers.
Lee underwent right meniscus surgery in the offseason and has not played yet this year. Coach Frank Vogel provided an update on Lee today.
“On track,” Vogel said. “Hopefully at some point towards the end of the regular season, we can start talking about where he’s at in terms of getting back on the floor.”
Vogel added that he has not been able to do any on court work at all.
Lee re-signed with the Suns this offseason after spending last season in Phoenix. The 6-foot-5 guard averaged 8.2 points on 44.5% shooting from 3 and 3.0 rebounds across 74 games.

Sasha Vezenkov is listed as out with a right ankle sprain for the Kings (30-22). Chris Duarte is questionable with a right ankle sprain.
This will be the Suns second-to-last game before the All-Star break. In the last meeting between these two teams on Jan. 16, the Suns staged one of the best fourth quarter comebacks ever, coming back from down 22 with 8:10 left in the game to win 119-117.
The Kings have still won two of the three matchups against the Suns this season. These two teams will meet five times this year because they played each other during the week of the In-Season Tournament championship.
Tomorrow’s game tips off at 8 p.m. MST on TNT.
