Locked On Suns Tuesday: How Kelly Oubre Jr.’s season-ending injury impacts the Suns’ final stretch

What happens to Booker, Ayton, Bridges and Johnson without Oubre?

Kelly Oubre Jr.’s season with the Suns ended once more with an injury. After a thumb issue stopped his momentum last year, now a torn meniscus puts a damper on possible playoff hopes in 2019-20 for Phoenix.

Without Oubre, who is the most impacted? For Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton, Mikal Bridges and Cameron Johnson, it will mean more opportunity, and more pressure. Will Ayton become the true 1B scorer to Booker, and will Bridges ascend to new heights?

We get into the numbers with and without Oubre, as well as how the Suns’ style of play will change and what that means for all involved. It’s going to get interesting.
