The Suns didn’t need Tucker, though, as they eked out a 118-114 road win against the Celtics.
Per the AP:
Tucker was listed as inactive for Monday night’s 118-114 victory over the Boston Celtics. Suns spokeswoman Julie Fie said Tucker “basically missed the plane” to Boston on Sunday.
Earlier this season, the NBA suspended Tucker for three games following his guilty plea to “super extreme” driving while intoxicated.
Tucker is averaging 6.6 points and 5.6 rebounds per game this season.
