The Portland Trail Blazers will face the Phoenix Suns in their fourth game at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. After a strong start in their first two games, the Summer Blazers struggled through Thursday’s game against the Indiana Pacers, eventually losing 97-64. Possibly even worse than the loss was the injury suffered by Kenneth Faried. You can see the Trail Blazers’ full summer league roster here.
The Phoenix Suns Summer League roster is full of young talent, without a veteran to be seen. The team announced the following players: Kyle Alexander, Ty-Shon Alexander, Vitto Brown, Alpha Diallo, Michael Frazier II, Jon Axel Gudmundsson, Zachary Hankins, Tyrique Jones, Trey Kell, Jo Lual-Acuil Jr., Nate Mason, Emmanuel Nzekwesi, Justin Simon, Jaleen Smith, Jalen Smith.
