Will Robin Lopez Play Against Spurs?
The Suns say the big fella is a “maybe” for the series opener tonight. The Arizona Republic reports: “Suns center Robin Lopez is a ‘maybe’ for Game 1 of the San Antonio series after participating today in his second team practice and first full-court scrimmaging since going out with a bulging disk five weeks ago. ‘He was fine,’ Suns coach Alvin Gentry said. ‘He’s just making progress. Baby steps. He’s better this week than he was last week so I think that’s a positive.’ Asked if he played any full-court action today, Gentry said, ‘He did some. As I said, he made some progress. I wouldn’t count on him playing 30 minutes tomorrow, no.’ At all? ‘Maybe,’ Gentry said. ‘Who knows? We’ll have to see how he is after today.”‘
