Duane Rankin: “He’s still rehabbing. He did even more conditioning yesterday. He’s close to getting back and playing.” Igor Kokoskov on if #Suns are shutting down TJ Warren. Hasn’t played since Jan. 22 with right ankle soreness/bruise. Will miss 29th straight game tonight vs. #Cavs. #Suns

Gina Mizell: Per #Suns, T.J. Warren (right ankle soreness) is OUT tonight at New Orleans. Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) and Richaun Holmes (right quad strain) are both questionable.
Warren would feel even better if he was preparing to play for tonight’s matchup against Houston, but this will be the 21st consecutive game he’s missed with what Phoenix has called right ankle soreness. As Warren confirmed after shootaround, it’s more than that. “Mentally, it’s been tough,” Warren said. “It’s one of those things that’s kind of tricky. It’s like a bone bruise. Sometimes you feel it. Sometimes, it gets better. Sometimes it doesn’t. It’s one of those things that’s on or off. I just want to make sure I’m myself before I’m back.”
Warren’s been out since Jan. 22 when he reinjured it in the first half of a loss to Minnesota. Those bruises have been known to take up to two months to heal. “I just want to make sure I’m all the way back,” Warren added. Warren also made it clear he wants to play before the season ends. The Suns will have 12 games left after Friday’s game.

Entering his fifth season, Richardson was involved in a five-game playoff series loss two years ago against the Sixers. There have been many other, heated games with the two teams. His biggest perception of Philadelphia as an opposing player? “The fans, man,” Josh Richardson said during Saturday’s annual Sixers Summer Shore Tour at the PigDog Beach Bar BQ in Wildwood. “The first thing you think about is how hard the fans are to opposing players. It is tough playing against that and I am excited to play on the same side of those fans.”
In looking at his new team, Richardson noted something he thought he would never see, that he will be the smallest player in the starting lineup. The rest of the projected lineup is 6-10 point guard Ben Simmons, 6-9 small forward Tobias Harris, 6-10 power forward Al Horford and 7-2 center Joel Embiid. “I have never been that ever in my life,” Richardson said about being the smallest. “This will be interesting, looking up to my teammates, talking in huddles.”
Not surprisingly, his summer has been spent working overtime on all aspects of his game. “I’ve been grinding,” he said. Smith says he has benefited from extra summer work in the weight room. The Sixers list him at 199 pounds. He said he was about 205 the last time he was weighed before the summer and now says he is 212 pounds. He hopes to become a solid rotation player. “That is the goal,” he said. “Get in the rotation and play hard and do what I do and have fun.”

Shams Charania: The Grizzlies are granting the Los Angeles Lakers permission to speak with Dwight Howard, league sources tell @The Athletic @Stadium.
Ramona Shelburne: As @VeniceMase and I discussed the other day on @ESPNLosAngeles … Dwight Howard may have left town on bad terms with some in LA. But he always had a good relationship with Jeanie Buss. Remember, Jeanie and Phil tweeting at him during the recruiting process.
