Suns' Tucker leaves game with chest contusion

PHOENIX (AP) Phoenix Suns forward P.J. Tucker left early in Thursday's game against the San Antonio Spurs with a chest bruise and will not return.

Tucker, who started, was hurt when San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard collided with him on a drive and sent Tucker sprawling to the court. Tucker left the game with 5:57 left in the first quarter and didn't return for the rest of the half. He was ruled out at halftime.

The Suns were left with eight healthy players to finish the game. They already had four players sidelined with injuries.
