Chriss (hip) did not practice Thursday and has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Nuggets, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports.
With Chriss, still unable to do any on-court work, the Suns may have him undergo a second MRI to see if they can learn anything more about the injury. It doesn't look like Chriss is close to returning to the floor, and Dragan Bender will continue to start at power forward in his absence.
Chriss (hip) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers, Scott Bordow of The Arizona Republic reports.
As expected, Chriss will miss his third straight contest due to a right hip flexor injury, and he remains without a clear timetable for a return. In Chriss' absence, Dragan Bender will once again get the start at power forward and likely see 30-plus minutes. He is, however, coming off a scoreless outing Sunday against the Pacers, so he'll be looking to bounce back in a big way Tuesday.
Chriss (hip) is considered doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports.
Chriss' right hip flexor injury prevented him from completing Monday's practice, so barring dramatic improvement overnight, it looks as though he'll miss his third straight game. That should open up another start at power forward for Dragan Bender, who has played 30-plus minutes in each of the past three contests to varying results. After compiling 34 points on 12-for-21 shooting from the field over the first two contests, Bender turned in a stinker Sunday against Indiana, failing to score while missing all seven of his shots and turning the ball over seven times.
As expected, Chriss will miss his second straight game with a strained hip flexor, and his next opportunity to return will be Tuesday in Portland. In his absence, Dragan Bender is expected to draw another start at power forward and play a heavy dose of minutes.
Chriss (hip) is considered day-to-day in advance of Friday's game against the Rockets, Scott Bordow of AZCentral.com reports.
Chriss was removed from Sunday's win over Oklahoma City with a hip flexor strain, which limited him to only 10 minutes of action, snapping a five-game streak in which Chriss had scored in double-figures. The Suns have the benefit of a spaced-out schedule this week, so Chriss will have four full days off to recover prior to Friday's contest. Consider the second-year forward questionable until further notice.
