Technical support issues
A total of 11 games will be held in the NBA on the 18th (Korean time), and will be played as both regular league games and in-season tournaments. The Phoenix Suns were finally fully formed with the recent return of Devin Booker , but the joy was short-lived and bad news occurred again.
This is because Bradley Beal has a recurrence of his back injury and will not be able to play for the time being. Bill, who suffered from a back injury at the beginning of the season and joined the team late, suffered a recurrence of the back injury in a recent game, and according to the results of the examination, it is expected that it will take about 3 weeks to return from the injury.
Since it is a re-examination rather than a return in 3 weeks, it is unclear when he will return. As a result, Phoenix has only been able to use the Big 3 of Kevin Durant , Booker, and Bill for only one game, making club officials cry. In Bill's absence, the starting shooting guard position will be filled by veteran Eric Gordon (34, 190 cm).
On the other hand, Jaylen Brown and Kristaps Porzingis , who missed the game against the Philadelphia 76ers on the 16th due to illness and a knee bruise, respectively, conducted team training ahead of the away game against the Toronto Raptors.
There is news that he can participate in the game against Toronto. Likewise, Giannis Antetokounmpo (28, 211 cm), who missed the last game against Toronto due to a minor calf injury, quickly shook off the injury and confirmed his participation in the game against the Charlotte Hornets.
Meanwhile, Donovan Mitchel will miss the game against the Detroit Pistons due to a hamstring injury, and Joel Embiid's participation will likely only be decided right before the game. For reference, Embiid, who was placed on the injured list due to left hip pain, has not missed a single game so far this season.
