Suns get Nash back but are still short-handed
The Phoenix Suns are short-handed for their game against the
Oklahoma City Thunder, with three players acquired in a trade with
Orlando yet to join the team.
Phoenix coach Alvin Gentry said Sunday night that the Suns ”are
going to try” to bring in Marcin Gortat, Vince Carter and Mickael
Pietrus before Monday night’s game at San Antonio but he doesn’t
know if that will happen.
If not, the trio would likely debut with the Suns on Thursday
night against Miami in Phoenix.
The Suns did get All-Star point guard Steve Nash back after he
missed most of the previous game with a neck stinger sustained
against Dallas. Joining him in the starting lineup were Chris
Dudley, Grant Hill, Channing Frye and Robin Lopez.
