Jose Alvarado, who sustained a right rib contusion during the Pistons matchup, will suit up against the Phoenix Suns, so we could get the next GTA moment against Chris Paul tonight.

The writing was thought to be on the wall for Alvarado when the New Orleans Pelicans announced Kira Lewis Jr. was recalled from the Birmingham Squadron earlier today.
Brandon Ingram (left great toe contusion) and Herb Jones (left ankle sprain) remain on the sidelines for the first of two straight contests against the Suns, but hey, Zion Williamson will face Phoenix for a first time during Willie Green’s tenure.
The Suns will be without Cam Johnson (right meniscus tear) and Duane Washington Jr. (left hip muscle strain).
For more on tonight’s matchup, which has to be considered a growing rivalry, please give our preview a read.
