Phoenix Suns January 15th Practice Report

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

An update on Leandro Barbosa's status for Wednesday night's game against the Lakers plus the possibility of Archie Goodwin going to the D-League.

The Suns are back at home to face the Lakers Wednesday night after a 1-4 road trip.  They held a shootaround this morning as they prepare to put an end to their three game losing steak.  Here are some notes from the media session that took place.

  • Leandro Barbosa is a game time decision for tonight's game. The shoulder injury occurred from bumping into Kenyon Martin at the beginning of overtime according to Barbosa. Head coach Jeff Hornacek thinks it's just a bruise.
  • Barbosa mentioned the two other teams that showed interest in him were the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers
  • Jeff Hornacek discussed the possibility of Archie Goodwin getting sent to D-League. Nothing is imminent, but it hasn't been ruled out if Goodwin continues not to play much with the Suns. He only played one minute against the Knicks and was a DNP-CD in the previous three games.
  • Alex Len isn't hurt. His zero minutes versus New York was a match-up based decision.

No other major news from US Airways. Everyone remember to say hi to Kendall Marshall tonight.
