The Wizards play the Suns at 10 p.m. ET tonight. Watch the game on NBC Sports Washington. Listen to it on Federal News Radio 1500 AM or the Wizards Mobile App.

This is the second game of a four-game road trip against Western Conference opponents. Washington is coming off a poor showing last night against the Lakers where they lost 124-106.

Today, they will not be able to face off against an old friend in Kelly Oubre for the second time. He recently had left thumb surgery after getting it injured on Mar. 16 and will be out four to six weeks. Given the timeframe, Oubre is effectively out for the season.

Since he was traded to Phoenix, Oubre has come into his own. He averaged 16.9 points and 4.9 rebounds in a Suns uniform and Phoenix won six of their last ten games with Oubre on the roster. In his last game on Mar. 16 against the New Orleans Pelicans, he scored 32 points in a 138-136 overtime win. You can see the highlights below:

Go Wizards.
