Phoenix Suns' Latest Injury Update Spells Disaster: What's Happened?

The Suns also had to watch as two of their starting five were injured in this game, adding insult to injury on an otherwise dreary night.

Center Jusuf Nurkic was the first player out, as it was discovered after the game that he had damaged his ankle after rolling it on Spurs player Jeremy Sochan's foot.

Nurkic was only able to play for 19 minutes as a result, and it is reasonable to note that if he had been on the court during the crucial moments, the result might have been different.

This season, Nurkic has been a rock for the Suns, but it's possible that his injury came at the worst possible time for the team. He has shown to be exactly what this club has needed to win games, despite the fact that we recently looked at why opponents will target him in the postseason—during the regular season at least.

Even if Nurkic is cleared to play in the upcoming games, head coach Frank Vogel would undoubtedly exercise caution with him. It is currently unknown whether Nurkic got an x-ray on his ankle.

Due to Nurkic's injury, backup center Drew Eubanks had to play 21 minutes; his two points and six rebounds demonstrated the improvement in his performance when he is in the game.
