The Utah Jazz should be closer to full strength as they take on the Phoenix Suns tonight at Talking Stick Resort Arena (8 p.m. MT tipoff).
Wings Rodney Hood and Joe Ingles have been listed as probable to play by the team's medical staff, the Jazz announced this afternoon.
Hood hasn't played since suffering a mild left calf strain during Friday's game in Minnesota. The starting shooting guard left the game, which the Jazz ended up losing 100-97, after stepping on the foot of T-Wolves center Karl-Anthony Towns.
Hood, who ended up leading the Jazz in scoring with 20 points that night, missed Utah's ensuing games against Denver and the Los Angeles Clippers. Rookie Donovan Mitchell has started in his place.
Ingles played in the Jazz's 102-84 loss Tuesday at Staples Center, but he was clearly not himself after having dealt with a stomach ailment the previous 24 hours. Ingles only scored three points in 18 minutes, both far under his early season averages.
This will be the fifth game in eight nights for Utah (2-2).
Phoenix (1-3) is coming off of its only win of the season, a 117-115 thriller over Sacramento on Monday.
It's been a wild first week for the Suns, who have experienced the worst loss in franchise history (124-76 to Portland), a defiant "I Dont wanna be here" tweet by one of its top players (since-suspended Eric Bledsoe) and the ensuing firing of their head coach (former Jazz player Earl Watson).
Here's a look at the timeline of how the Suns became such a hot mess.
