The Pacers play to first of two back-to-back games at home on Tuesday when they host the Phoenix Suns.

According to Nate Taylor, both Montae Ellis (oldest guy on team) and Rodney Stuckey (foot) participated in the team's shootaround and expect to play after missing practice on Monday. Managing rest and minor injuries through the busy January schedule is key, so giving Ellis and Stuck the extra day makes sense.

Phoenix is struggling after starting the season as a dangerous team rising in the West. Dynamic guard Eric Bledsoe is out for the season and Markief Morris has appeared to mentally check out for the season now that his brother is in Detroit. Assistant coaches has recently been fired but Jeff Hornacek remains around to deal with what has become a messy situation.

After losing 10 of their last 11 games which leaves them with a 13-26 record, the Suns appear ready navigate their way into the Ben Simmons lottery. But players play and we've seen Brandon Knight and Tyson Chandler cause plenty of problems in the past.
