De’Andre Ayton will play tonight for the Suns. Cam Payne is out, per Monty Williams. – 8:25 PM

On the basketball front, Deandre Ayton is in and Cam Payne is out – 8:25 PM

Deandre Ayton (lower leg contusion) is questionable for tomorrow’s game against the Rockets.

Monty Williams said Deandre Ayton did some court work today. Cam Payne did a little bit more too. Still limited, though, and obviously no chance to do 5-on-5 with game/practice/game – 3:28 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Frank Kaminsky said Deandre Ayton was moving better today. #Suns3:27 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Monty Williams said Cam Payne (hamstring) and Deandre Ayton (lower leg contusion) did a little bit more today, especially Payne, but they were still limited and have yet to get up and down in 5-on-5 pic.twitter.com/kZo4pMmOOr3:12 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Monty Williams said Deandre Ayton and Cameron Payne did some court work, but still easing them back. He said Payne did more work than Ayton. #Suns3:09 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
#Suns overcame 20-point deficit, 19 turnovers that led to 30 Pelicans points and not having Deandre Ayton in Tuesday night’s 112-100 win on TNT.
Five takeaways as Phoenix (3-3) faces #Rockets on Thursday (w/postgame videos for days) #NBA75

With Deandre Ayton sidelined last night, the Suns learned some valuable lessons about how to best use Frank Kaminsky and JaVale McGee: bit.ly/2ZQRUCB11:07 AM

StatMuse @statmuse
Frank Kaminsky off the bench tonight:
17 PTS
5-8 FG
1-2 3P
6-6 FT
4 STL
+18 +/-
Frank The Tank stepped up big in the absence of Deandre Ayton. pic.twitter.com/NKzmt0svro12:29 AM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Deandre Ayton stands on the bench and cheers as McGee gets a standing ovation in coming out the game as Kaminsky replaces him.
Has 18 points and five rebounds. Had a surge to start the fourth to give #Suns the lead.
Phoenix up 90-89 with 7:50 left in game. – 11:54 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Pels 59, #Suns 48 H.
Jae Crowder 13 (5-of-6 FGs, 3-of-4 on 3s). Devin Booker 9 (3-of-11), Chris Paul 0 points (0-for-2), 8 assists to become 3rd on #NBA all-time assist list.
#Suns 14 turnovers that’s led to 22 Pelicans points. Deandre Ayton (leg), Cameron Payne (hamstring) OUT – 11:02 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
#Suns down 33-20 to Pelicans, who don’t have Zion or Brandon Ingram.
Yes, #Suns are down Ayton and Cameron Payne, but wow, but it is early. #WontBowDown10:25 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
As expected, JaVale McGee is starting in place of Deandre Ayton.
Suns: Paul, Booker, Bridges, Crowder, McGee
Pelicans: Graham, Alexander-Walker, Jones, Hart, Valanciunas – 9:31 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Deandre Ayton (leg) OUT. #Suns8:17 PM

Christian Clark @cclark_13
Deandre Ayton is out tonight, Monty Williams says. – 8:17 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Deandre Ayton is out for the Suns vs. the Pelicans, per Monty Williams – 8:16 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Monty Williams says Deandre Ayton (lower leg contusion) is out for tonight – 8:15 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Now that’s 5:30 ET but with Brandon Ingram listed as doubtful and Zion Williamson still out after offseason foot surgery, this might be a game to rest Deandre Ayton as he’s still listed as questionable after injuring his leg against the Cavs. #Suns pic.twitter.com/XSRKqRF5nM6:18 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Looks like Deandre Ayton is being somewhat limited at shootaround today in these drills with the bigs, but he’s still out there helping out pic.twitter.com/oHYUWH5pXA1:38 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Deandre Ayton throwing passes in the paint?
That tells me all I need to know about his status tonight, but we’ll see. #Suns pic.twitter.com/39GOUxjt0W1:34 PM
