The 30-year-old didn't want his teammates to remain rusty... So he gifted them baskets
After their 1st win of the season against the Sacramento Kings, the Suns came across some unexpected news. Deandre Ayton just had received a 25-game suspension due to the NBA/NBPA anti-drug program by testing positive for a diuretic.
In what looked like a promising season for the Phoenix Suns, their hope for playoff contention started to look bleak after this event, losing one of their best players for at least a quarter of the year. However, the additions of key role players like Ricky Rubio, Aron Baynes and Frank Kaminsky helped the team steady the ship until his return. They’re currently sitting in 8th place, still in a playoff spot, with 11 wins and 12 defeats. Ayton’s return is scheduled to take place December 17 at Staples Center against the Los Angeles Clippers. So, what can we expect from the Suns when the skilled sophomore makes his way back to the lineup?

With Ayton recovering back the starting position, it gives the Suns more depth overall, as Aron Baynes and Frank Kaminsky can create a very good partnership to wreak havoc amongst the opposition’s bench units. All in all, they are in a very good spot to reach the playoffs for the 1st time in 10 years.
