The Suns (8-3) are setup to face against the young Orlando Magic (3-9) tonight. Phoenix will be without Chris Paul for the second straight game after he suffered a heel injury against the Philadelphia 76ers and has been day-to-day since. Landry Shamet will also not be playing, as he is in concussion protocol.
The Orlando Magic on the other hand will be without their young star and first overall draft pick Paolo Banchero as well, who is dealing with an ankle sprain.
The Suns not only had to worry about the scouting report in this game, but had to take an alternate route to avoid the effects of Tropical Storm Nicole which breached landfall as a Category One. The team ended up flying to Tampa and driving 90 minutes to reach Orlando.
