Leuer (back) went scoreless (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), but grabbed four rebounds in 12 minutes during the Suns' 102-84 loss to the Knicks on Friday. Leuer missed the previous five games due to back spasms, but was activated for Friday's match-up with the Knicks. He struggled offensively, but it was at least a positive sign to see him able to take part in the action. The Suns are back in business on Sunday versus the Mavericks.
Leuer (back) is probable to play Friday against the Knicks, Paul Coro of The Arizona Republic reports. Leuer has now missed five games in a row due to his lower-back spasms. With him out of the lineup, Alex Len has taken over the starting power forward spot in front of Markieff Morris and Mirza Teletovic. Should Leuer return to the lineup on Friday, look for Morris and Teletovic to most likely take a back seat, and for Len and Leuer to most likely compete for the starting spot.
Leuer (back) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports. This will be Leuer's fifth game in a row that he'll miss with lower back spasms. In his stead, Mizra Teletovic may pick up some extra minutes. The 26-year-old's next chance to return to the court will come on Friday against the Knicks.
Leuer (back) won't play Tuesday at Philadelphia, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports. While Leuer will miss his fourth game in a row due to back spasms, the frontcourt will have Markieff Morris available for the first time in a week. Leuer's next chance to take the court arrives Wednesday in Cleveland.
Leuer (back) is now being listed a game-time decision for Tuesday's tilt with the 76ers, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports. The Suns initially listed Leuer as questionable and then doubtful for the contest due to his ongoing bout with back spasms, but the forward's situation was upgraded after he took part in morning shootaround Tuesday. He'll test out his back during pregame warmups, but even if Leuer is available, don't expect him to receive a healthy dose of minutes.
