When Baker gets cleared for full contact, he can’t be counted out from being back in the mix at some juncture. The 24-year-old suffered a severely sprained ankle during voluntary workouts in early September and missed part of preseason. After the first three losses, Hornacek deactivated him, saying the ankle wasn’t 100 percent and that he needed time. “Injuries pop out of nowhere,” said Baker, who played 52 games last season. “You just got to treat them the best you can and trust you’ll be healthy when the time comes. That’s what we’re trying to get to right now. Putting the first priority as health is very important in this league.”
