The game between the Miami Heat and the Phoenix Suns takes place while both teams are dealing with injuries. A more valiant team will emerge victorious.
Will Chris Paul playing today vs Heat?
The return of Victor Oladipo (knee) is not expected anytime soon, and the Heat have provided no timetable.
Oladipo has yet to play this season due to left knee tendinosis. The 30-year-old guard hasn’t played more than 36 games since the 2018-19 season.
Dewayne Dedmon is listed as questionable for Monday’s game against the Suns due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot, according to the Heat.
Omer Yurtseven (ankle) will be sidelined indefinitely following surgery later this week.
Yurtseven has already missed all 13 regular-season games for the Heat, and with surgery on the horizon, he’ll be out for even longer to begin the season.
Tyler Herro (ankle) is questionable for Monday’s game against the Phoenix Suns. He’s been sidelined by an ankle injury, which has kept him out of the last three games.
The Phoenix Suns have yet to decide when veteran point guard Chris Paul will return. Paul has missed the team’s last two games due to right heel pain and remains out.

On November 7, Paul was injured while playing against the Philadelphia 76ers. In the middle of the second quarter, Paul attempted to navigate a screen and appeared to trip or lose his balance. Regardless, at the next whistle, he stumbled up and checked out.
He then went to the locker room, after which the team announced that he would not be returning.
Landry Shamet (concussion) will miss Monday’s game against the Heat. He’ll miss his second straight game because he’s still in the NBA’s concussion protocol.
Despite the injuries, the Suns have a strong 8-4 record, trailing only the Utah Jazz for first place in the Western Conference.
