PJ Tucker out six to eight weeks

Suns forward P.J. Tucker will miss training camp, preseason and likely the early parts of the regular season after undergoing a low back microsectomy procedure Thursday. Valley spine specialist Dr. Dennis Crandall performed the surgery, which typically addresses a herniated lumbar disk and relieves nerve pressure. The team’s announcement did not give specifics beyond stating Tucker would be out six to eight weeks. That puts a return to basketball activity either immediately after the Suns’ Oct. 26 regular-season opener or closer to Nov. 10 after eight Suns games.

He said he has kept in contact with P.J. Tucker, Eric Bledsoe, Devin Booker, Archie Goodwin and Alex Len. He called Friday’s return “different but not weird.” “I definitely had a great four years here with my teammates and the organization,” Morris said. “The last year ended kind of bitter but you live and you learn. I have nothing but good things to say about the organization. “It’s just like another game. We’re trying to get into the playoffs. It’s not about playing the Suns. It’s about us making a playoff push.”
Sources tell ESPN.com that the Raptors, emboldened by that success after establishing themselves as the foremost challenger in the conference to the Cavaliers, have been active in assessing their trade options in advance of the Feb. 18 trade deadline as they search for an upgrade at power forward. The Raptors, sources say, have had exploratory discussions to gauge the possibility of acquiring Denver’s Kenneth Faried, Brooklyn’s Thaddeus Young and the Phoenix duo of Markieff Morris and P.J. Tucker.
