The final injury updates for Jusuf Nurkić and Grayson Allen have been provided ahead of tonight’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Both Nurkić and Allen are available for the Suns (45-31, sixth in Western Conference).

Allen was probable with left hip soreness after missing Wednesday’s 122-101 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Jusuf Nurkić was added to the report as questionable yesterday with left calf soreness and ruled by coach Frank Vogel to be a game-time decision pregame. It is unclear when Nurkić sustained this injury. Nurkić is averaging 11.2 points and 11 rebounds across 71 games for Phoenix, and the Suns are 1-4 without him this season.

Damion Lee (right meniscus surgery) remains out for Phoenix (44-31) tomorrow, as he has been all season. Lee was seen shooting Wednesday at practice, however Vogel said he will miss the rest of the regular season and could return some time in the playoffs.

Meanwhile for the Timberwolves (53-23), Karl Anthony-Towns will miss his 15th straight game with a left meniscus tear. Minnesota has gone 10-4 since Towns has been out.

Tonight’s game tips off at 7 p.m. MST and is the second of Phoenix’s four-game homestand. These two teams have not played since way back on Nov. 15 when the Suns snapped Minnesota’s then 7-game win streak with a blow-out 133-115 victory.
