The Phoenix Suns released injury updates on Mikal Bridges, Kelly Oubre Jr., Aron Baynes, Jalen Lecque and David Kramer ahead of its preseason opener on Tuesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

No timetable for return has been set for any of the five players although most are set to be re-evaluated within the next 10 days.

Bridges (right patella bone bruise), Oubre Jr. (right wrist tendinitis) and Lecque (left ankle sprain) will be undergoing rehab treatment and expect to be re-evaluated in the next 7-10 days.

Baynes underwent a procedure for a nasal fracture he suffered in Thursday’s practice and is expected to be re-evaluated on Sunday.

Kramer is out indefinitely with a stress reaction in his left tibia.

It is unclear on the availability of the players throughout the preseason.
