The Phoenix Suns will be without Jared Dudley tonight for the team’s road matchup with the Houston Rockets.

Dudley joins Elfrid Payton, Devin Booker, Alex Len, and T.J. Warren on the Suns bench. Dudley has played in fewer minutes each of the last four games. In Wednesday’s loss to the Los Angeles Clippers he was on the court for just 5:29.

Oh yeah, Tyson Chandler is out for the season too.

That means five more minutes that can go to one of the Suns’ youngsters. You’ll see a lot of them in the final two weeks. Let’s hope that the beat-down Houston is sure to deliver us tonight is not so vicious that we cannot enjoy positive performances from prospective pillars of the franchise.

The Suns and Rockets tip off at 5p PT.
