Phoenix Suns' reserve guard Leandro Barbosa has been kind of a fixture for the Suns' franchise during the 2000's. He spent his first seven seasons in Phoenix from 2003-2010. After not finding a home in the NBA this past offseason, he signed back up with the Suns in late January to provide some depth in the backcourt with Eric Bledsoe dealing with an injury.

The Suns may not have him for a while after he fractured his hand Tuesday night against the Los Angeles Clippers. He checked out of the game with 6:09 left in the second quarter due to the injury. He had it checked out to reveal a fracture in his left hand. He is not returning to action tonight.

Barbosa is averaging 7.8 points in 18.8 minutes. He's played in 19 games for the Suns this season.
