The stat monitors and stat sheets here have Ayton with three fouls but he should have four. His third was given to Bridges. Suns pulled him after the fourth, but could come up later. – 11:29 PM

Back at it with the game, but still got phone in ring ring for Sarver.

J. Kyle Mann @jkylemann
ayton swatted sengun’s lefty hook away there like he was disgusted by the mere attempt
like he was a child at a summer camp – 10:20 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
I’m working on Sarver stuff, to be completely honest, but watching the game as well.
#Suns up 11-4 as Ayton has a wrap on that leg. Just got a block. Bridges with six early on two 3s. – 10:19 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Deandre Ayton’s “did he really just try that on me?” face after swatting Sengun brought me joy – 10:19 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Suns start 3-for-4 from 3 and then Deandre Ayton dribbles all the way from the 3-point line to set up a six-foot touch shot.
Lots of what ya want to see. – 10:16 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Deandre Ayton returns to the starting lineup for the Suns. Usual 5. – 9:39 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Deandre Ayton (leg) will play tonight, Cameron Payne (hamstring) won’t. #Suns8:40 PM

Cayleigh Griffin @cayleighgriffin
De’Andre Ayton will play tonight for the Suns. Cam Payne is out, per Monty Williams. – 8:25 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
On the basketball front, Deandre Ayton is in and Cam Payne is out – 8:25 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Monty Williams said Deandre Ayton did some court work today. Cam Payne did a little bit more too. Still limited, though, and obviously no chance to do 5-on-5 with game/practice/game – 3:28 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Frank Kaminsky said Deandre Ayton was moving better today. #Suns3:27 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Monty Williams said Cam Payne (hamstring) and Deandre Ayton (lower leg contusion) did a little bit more today, especially Payne, but they were still limited and have yet to get up and down in 5-on-5 pic.twitter.com/kZo4pMmOOr3:12 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Monty Williams said Deandre Ayton and Cameron Payne did some court work, but still easing them back. He said Payne did more work than Ayton. #Suns3:09 PM
