My @PrizePicks for Wolves-Suns
Booker under 29.5 pts
– He’s averaging 25 (no Pat Bev isn’t worth 5)
Biyombo under 22.5 pts + rebs + asts
– Think foul trouble is likely
Ant over 31.5 pts + rebs + asts
– Usage will be high
Bridges over 1.5 blks + steals
– Wolves don’t have PGs – 8:16 PM

Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Rockets open with the 6-4 Jae’Sean Tate on seven-footer Jusuf Nurkic. Looks like the plan is to have Wood double him in the post. – 8:14 PM

Chris Finch said D’Angelo Russell is out tonight, Patrick Beverley is out and it appears Jarred Vanderbilt is a game-time decision. Injuries piling up a bit for the Wolves. Finch said it appears Russell’s injury is more day to day, shouldn’t cost much time. – 7:35 PM

Monty Williams had no update on Deandre Ayton.
Hasn’t done any on-court work.
As for Jae Crowder (wrist) and JaVale McGee (sore knee), they have “taken some steps.”
Williams said Crowder had “decent” workout yesterday, but added they’re being cautious with him and McGee. #Suns pic.twitter.com/f9DFYSrNUr7:31 PM

Monty Williams said it’s “good to see that progress is being made,” but didn’t have a concrete update on Deandre Ayton. Jae Crowder and JaVale McGee had good workouts, but Monty had conversations with both about being aware of the big picture given this stage of their careers – 7:18 PM
