  • Markieff Morris: I am taking all bets

    Markieff Morris doesn’t say much; and when he does he’s very soft-spoken. These days, however, he’s speaking loud and clear. “I’m taking all bets,” Morris stated Sunday. Morris’ Kansas Jayhawks will play for the National Championship Monday night. “I was happy for those guys,” Morris said. “They fought hard.” Had he not declared for the […]
  • Markieff Morris hampered by flu

    Markieff Morris suited up Sunday night but did not play, missing his second straight game as he recovers from a bout with the flu. “I definitely don’t feel myself,” Morris said following the Suns’ shoot-around Sunday morning. “I’m feeling better. Definitely a lot better than what I was feeling but I’m not 100% yet. Until […]
  • Steve Nash is paving the way for his exit out of Phoenix

    It appears Steve Nash is preparing for an exit. A free agent at the end of this season, the Suns have, publicly, expressed hope a desire to keep the former league MVP on Planet Orange after this season. Still playing at a high level, Nash is the quintessential Phoenix Sun, the face of the franchise […]
  • ESPN’s Barry: Despite comments, Nash won’t leave

    Steve Nash opined on national radio Thursday that he wants to be on a team in the hunt for a championship, and the Suns, quite frankly, have been going backwards in attempting to get to that point. But ESPN analyst Jon Barry told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Friday that Nash will not leave […]
  • Suns’ Nash refutes Vecsey report

    Another NBA trade deadline has come and gone, and Steve Nash is still a member of the Phoenix Suns. Despite the Suns’ unwillingness to trade the two-time league MVP, speculation still runs rampant about Nash’s future in the Valley. Nash made the national media rounds Thursday, and while promoting Dove Men Care, the subject of […]
  • Suns forward Grant Hill undergoes knee surgery

    Suns forward Grant Hill underwent surgery Friday to repair a torn meniscus, and is expected to miss at least two weeks, and possibly the rest of the regular season.

  • Suns move on without Hill; host New Orleans

    The Phoenix Suns have dipped under .500 again, and will have to make up at least two games in the West in order to make the playoffs. Oh, and they’ll have to do without one of their captains, Grant Hill. Team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Thomas Carter performed a successful procedure on Hill’s right knee Friday […]
  • Nash laments ‘bad breaks’ that kept Suns out of Finals

    Steve Nash has guided the Suns to three Western Conference finals appearances in seven seasons since returning in 2004, leading the franchise to a significant amount of success. However, one thing he has never led them to is the NBA Finals, a fact that is not particularly easy for the two- time MVP to swallow. […]
  • Nash has thought about being traded, but had no intentions of asking out

    Steve Nash never had any intentions of asking to be traded, though that does not mean he hasn’t thought about the possibility. A free agent at the end of this season, Nash may ultimately choose to leave Phoenix, his NBA home for the last eight years. But that’s for the future, if it happens at […]
  • Gentry says Suns must have playoff mentality now

    The Phoenix Suns are 25-26, two games out of a playoff spot with 15 to go. So, if they hope to make the postseason, they must treat every game from here on out like a playoff game. “We’ve got to treat every game as a playoff game,” Suns coach Alvin Gentry told Arizona Sports 620’s […]
  • Suns’ Brown has career night despite loss to Spurs

    Shannon Brown took advantage of his starting role Tuesday, and even though the Phoenix Suns lost, Brown was the silver lining with his career scoring night. Brown was inserted into the starting lineup against the rival San Antonio Spurs when Grant Hill was held out due to a right knee strain. Brown seized the opportunity […]
  • Stoudemire’s injury does not validate Suns decision to let him go

    The news that former apostrophe-less Suns star Amar’e Stoudemire is out indefinitely due to a bulging disc in his lower back would seem to indicate the Suns were right not to re-sign him following the 2010 season, instead letting him leave for the guaranteed money in New York. After all, the Knicks are now on […]
  • Suns coach balances practice time with rest

    The Phoenix Suns returned to the US Airways Center Tuesday morning for shoot around before hosting the San Antonio Spurs later in the evening.

  • Suns coach Gentry rewards team with day off

    For only the second time this season — and second time this month– the Suns are a winning basketball team. After back-to-back losses to Miami and Orlando on consecutive days, the Suns rebounded with wins at Indiana and at Cleveland to earn a split of their four-game road trip. The Suns (25-24) sit 10th in […]
  • Suns need bench to come up big

    If the Phoenix Suns are going to reach the playoffs this season, their bench will be a big reason why.

  • Season turned around, how far can Suns go?

    The Phoenix Suns have gone from lottery discussions to the playoff picture over the last few weeks, a turnaround that has surprised a good number of people.

  • ESPN writer: J.J. Hickson could evolve with Suns

    There’s never been a question about J.J. Hickson’s remarkable talent and athleticism. Still, the 23-year-old power forward has struggled to find his footing in the NBA, frustrating teams with his lack of basketball knowledge and execution of the fundamentals. Hickson, who was bought out by the Sacramento Kings Monday after averaging a mere 4.7 points […]
  • Suns will have ample cap space this summer

    The Suns will have every opportunity to add a big time player or two this summer.

The Suns are $5 million over the cap right now and have Steve Nash, Grant […]
  • Suns making up for lack of talent with heart

    The Suns would have been better off tanking the season. The 2012 draft set to be one of the more loaded classes in recent history. The Thunder are leading the West, and they are showing no signs of falling apart. And, should a team miraculously get past the Durantula, chances are the Bulls or Heat […]
  • Steve Nash: ‘We’re in a desperate position’

    In the past four weeks the Phoenix Suns have won almost as many games as they did in the season’s first nine weeks. Their 11-3 run since February 19th has distanced the memory of a once 12-19 record and 13th place standing in the Western Conference. The Suns put those days in the rear-view mirror […]
