De’Anthony Melton will start on Friday vs. the Spurs joining Deandre Ayton, Trevor Ariza, Josh Jackson and Mikal Bridges.
This move sends fellow rookie Elie Okobo to the bench. The Suns just haven’t been able to get any traction with no Devin Booker (hamstring) and they’re looking for anything to provide a spark. We’ll have to see how both rookies perform to night as neither has distanced himself from the other so far.
