Final Injury Update Sacramento Kings – Phoenix Suns
The Suns are coming off a 113-112 victory over the Utah Jazz. Phoenix easily won that game, but they only shot 27.3% from three. If they want to compete with the Kings on the road, they will need to improve their offensive efficiency.
Chris Paul (heel) will not play against the Kings on Monday, according to Gerald Bourguet of GoPHNX.com.
The veteran floor general is set to miss his 10th consecutive game due to a heel injury that has proven to be more complicated than expected. Cameron Payne should be the Suns’ starting point guard until Paul returns.
