P.J. Tucker suffered a right hand sprain at the end of Sunday's game at Cleveland, but plans on playing through it.
The Suns are at Philly on Monday and the swelling in his shooting hand will have to be monitored, giving us some pause when trying to determine if he'll play. Owners in weekly leagues might want to take a look at Tucker, who had 13 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on Sunday. The Suns play four games, and if Tucker can go through the injury, he could be a sneaky play. There is some risk in using him due to the injury, while he's also prone to single-digit scoring nights in between his good games, so weigh options carefully when deciding on whether or not to put Tucker in your lineup on Monday. If he misses any time, Marcus Morris should be the main beneficiary, along with an already streaking Gerald Green.
