The Suns have two young wings they like in Kelly Oubre and Mikail Bridges.

Or they will have. Right now both are out injured and are going to miss at least the next week and likely longer, the team has reported.

Oubre has not really participated in training camp, but the good news is this is his non-shooting hand and is not something that has been chronic. Oubre just needs time to heal, but that’s time lost in camp getting used to playing with Ricky Rubio, Dario Saric and the rest.

Bridges bone bruise is also something that will heal with time, but this is a painful injury and can linger if the player rushes back.

These are the guys the Suns are going to lean on this season at the three, the team needs to be patient and get them healthy. It’s just not an ideal situation early in camp.
