Official Injury Report for Suns vs Pelicans

PHOENIX — The Phoenix Suns are set to conclude their road trip against the New Orleans Pelicans tonight – here’s the injury report for both sides:

PHOENIX SUNS

OUT – Damion Lee (meniscus surgery)

The Suns are once again at full strength with Lee being the only name on their injury report.

Lee suffered a torn meniscus ahead of training camp and has been working his way back to full health, though a timetable for his actual return has yet to be provided. Suns coach Frank Vogel previously said he expected Lee back before the end of the regular season.

No other names is good news for players such as Bradley Beal and Jusuf Nurkic, as both Suns starters found themselves injured during the previous week.

NEW ORLEANS PELICANS

OUT – Jose Alvarado (right oblique strain), Brandon Ingram (left knee contusion)

AVAILABLE – Cody Zeller (face)

This will be Alvarado’s third consecutive game missed for New Orleans. CBS Sports believes Jordan Hawkins will see a jump in action with his absence.

Ingram is still out after being diagnosed with a bone contusion just under two weeks ago, though reports suggest he’s making strong progress.

The Suns and Pelicans are locked into a tight race within the Western Conference postseason picture. New Orleans clings to the No. 6 seed while Phoenix is just two games back as the No. 8 spot.

Opening tip is slated for just past 5:00 PM Arizona time.
