Suns' P.J. Tucker: Participates in three-on-three work Monday

Tucker (back) participated in some 3-on-3 work during Monday's practice, Paul Coro of The Arizona Republic reports.

Tucker has slowly increased his on-court activities in recent weeks, but Monday's availability for 3-on-3 work is another big step in his recovery. By participating in 3-on-3, it appears Tucker is able to at least take some contact, which means he's progressing towards a return early on in the regular season. With that said, it's still unlikely Tucker will be ready to go for the regular season opener on Oct. 26, which means T.J. Warren should begin the year as the team's starting small forward.
