Suns rest players, 4th seed locked

The Phoenix Suns have had no players listed on their injury report for the past four games.

With the fourth seed in the Western Conference already locked up, the Suns are considering resting players in their final two games of the regular season against the Lakers and the Clippers.

Coach Monty Williams is discussing with his staff about the possibility of resting players and focusing on certain combinations and strategies.

The Suns are aware of the potential benefits of resting, including giving players time to recover and scout their first-round playoff opponent.

Last year, as the No. 1 seed, the Suns had to wait until two days before their first-round series to find out who their opponent would be after the play-in tournament.

Despite having a better record than their first-round opponent, the New Orleans Pelicans, the series proved to be challenging due to limited preparation time.

The Suns have had a successful season, securing the fourth seed after being in danger of falling into the play-in tournament.

The Denver Nuggets, their upcoming opponent, have several players listed as questionable due to injuries.

In their previous matchup, the Suns defeated the Nuggets 100-93, despite Denver cutting down a 27-point lead.

The Suns are considering resting players to ensure their readiness for the playoffs while also preparing for their first-round opponent with the extra time available.
