The Phoenix Suns will have forward Cam Johnson and guard Landry Shamet available against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Shamet, who missed the Suns’ first two games with a left hip strain, was listed as probable on Sunday’s injury report.

Johnson was questionable to play with a right hip contusion while backup wing Ish Wainright is out due to lower back pain.

Shamet is in his second season with the Suns after being acquired from the Brooklyn Nets. The former Clipper played 69 regular season games with Phoenix last year, when he scored 8.3 points per game.

Shamet shot 36.8% from beyond the arc on 4.8 attempts per contest and finished with an effective field goal percentage of 52.1%.

His shooting will be a big boost to a bench unit in need of offense.

Johnson scored 20 total points over his first two games of the season and exited both games with an ailment. He experienced leg cramping on opening night against the Dallas Mavericks.

The 26-year old was held to 23 minutes on Friday against the Portland Trail Blazers because of the hip problem.

Wainright, meanwhile, has not played this season.

No one for the Clippers is listed on the report, as forward Kawhi Leonard and guard John Wall will be active after resting during L.A.’s victory against the Sacramento Kings Saturday night.

Sunday’s action begins at 7 p.m.
