Monty Williams said JaVale McGee’s injury flared up in the last game and the Suns are being cautious with him. Deandre Ayton is still day-to-day, they’ll have an update on him when they return to Phoenix – 8:41 PM

New pod with @NekiasNBA on the Heat, Bucks, Jazz, Mavs, Blazers, All-Stars, and more. Super fun episode with one of the best analysts covering basketball. Thanks Nekias! – 7:16 PM

Suns GM James Jones told @BurnsAndGambo today he trusts the team’s continuity ahead of the trade deadline and said he’s focused on internal development: arizonasports.com/story/2987012/…6:47 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Kind of telling the best episode of The Book of Boba Fett didn’t involve him at all. The whole “Boba as reformed bounty hunter” thing always seemed like a weird approach when that’s exactly what Mando already did – 6:12 PM

After missing games against the Rockets and Jazz, Klay Thompson will return to the starting lineup on Tuesday against the Mavericks. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2022/01/25/inj…6:00 PM

“He makes me look good. He makes me look smart.”
Hiring Monty Williams is one of best moves James Jones has made in his role as #Suns GM.
Definitely top five. Arguably the best move.
