Mikal Bridges (knee) and Kelly Oubre Jr. (right wrist) are both set to be re-evaluated in 7-10 days, ruling them out for half of the pre-season.
Their earliest return dates would be for their Oct. 12th game against Denver, which would be the third out of four pre-season games. The news means that rookie Cam Johnson will get an extended look playing with the first unit, giving him a decent opprotunity to make the case for earning rotation minutes. Bridges and Oubre Jr., as of now, figure to split the majority of wing minutes in Phoenix this year, giving both moderate appeal as upside picks in the later rounds.
