Tyler Johnson (knee) will not play for Suns Friday versus Rockets
Phoenix Suns guard Tyler Johnson (right knee soreness) has been ruled out for Friday's game versus the Houston Rockets.
Johnson was previously considered questionable. His absence will likely lead to a start for De'Anthony Melton or Elie Okobo. Look for Devin Booker and Kelly Oubre to help pick up the slack on offense.
Johnson is averaging 21.7 FanDuel points in 57 games this season. He's recorded 11.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.4 triples through 13 games for Phoenix.
