Leandro Barbosa Returns to Action for Suns

The bench work was bolstered by the return of Leandro Barbosa, who had missed two games because of a right shoulder sprain. Barbosa played his first game as a Sun at US Airways Center since the 2010 Western Conference finals elimination game and showed why the Suns plan to keep him for the season beyond his second 10-day contract.

He wore a padded right shoulder brace and took one perimeter shot grudgingly but immediately hurt Denver with his driving ability.

“I still have trouble to put it up,” Barbosa said. “My shot that I shot on the 3-pointer, I couldn’t follow through because I was a little tight. But you know that my game is that if I can get to the hole, I’m going. I want to be aggressive. That’s the reason they brought me here.”

Report: Jusuf Nurkic Out Indefinitely with Broken Right Wrist

Jusuf Nurkic can’t seem to catch a figurative break when it comes to literal breaks.

The 7-0 center out of Bosnian and Herzegovina suffered a broken right wrist in the third quarter of Thursday’s game versus the Pacers Thursday night at the Moda Center.

The injury occurred around the 8:40 mark of the third quarter, as Nurkic fell after contesting a drive attempt by Pacers center Myles Turner. Nurkic took a hard fall to the floor and remained there for some time before getting up and immediately heading to the locker room with members of the team’s medical staff. X-rays taken taken during the game showed a fracture to his right wrist, which, depending on the severity and location of the break, could sideline the center for the foreseeable future.
