Allen was added to the injury report as questionable yesterday. Coach Frank Vogel said this is an injury that has lingered Allen throughout his career, and it flared up after Monday’s 124-111 win over the New Orleans Pelicans, Vogel presumes him to be day-to-day, and Royce O’Neale will start in his place.

Allen is leading the NBA in 3-point percentage this season at 46.9% and played 33 minutes against the Pelicans, finishing with 11 points and four assists. He has played and started in 69 of the Suns’ 75 games this season, averaging 13.4 points.

Damion Lee (right meniscus surgery) remains out for Phoenix (44-31) tomorrow, as he has been all season. Lee was seen shooting today at practice, however Vogel said pregame he will miss the rest of the regular season

The Cavaliers (46-30) have a long list of injuries, but Donovan Mitchell is listed as available after missing last night’s game with left knee injury management.

Isaac Okoro (right great toe soreness), Dean Wade (right knee sprain), Craig Porter Jr. (illness) and Ty Jerome (right ankle surgery) are all out for Cleveland.

These two teams last met on March 11 in Cleveland, a game in which the Suns came back from down as much as 19 to win 117-111 behind 37 points, eight rebounds and six assists from Kevin Durant.

Tonight’s game tips off at 7 p.m. MST and marks the start of a four-game homestand for the Suns. These are the last four games Phoenix will play at home in the regular season.
