Phoenix big Tyson Chandler will not be in the lineup Friday night when the Suns host the Oklahoma City Thunder. T.J. Warren is expected to make his return from injury.

It will be the fourth consecutive absence for Chandler, thanks to neck spasms. He last played February 12th in a 46-point loss to the Golden State Warriors.

Warren returns after missing Wednesday’s 110-102 win over the Grizzlies in Memphis. This season he’s second on the Suns in scoring, with a career high 19.5 points per contest. In January’s 114-100 win over the Thunder Warren scored 23 points on 9 of 15 shooting.

Adjust your fantasy rosters accordingly. Tonight’s a big one, Phoenix is trying to string a pair of victories together for just the sixth time this season. Suns. Thunder. Talking Stick Resort Arena. You’ll want to check what time tip is where you live. It’s scheduled for 6p where I live.
