Tyler Ulis (back) not expected to play for Suns on Saturday

Phoenix Suns guard Tyler Ulis (back) did not practice, and is not expected to play against the Denver Nuggets on Saturday.

What It Means:

Both Ulis and Devin Booker (hip) are likely to be out on Saturday, so newly acquired guard Elfrid Payton should draw the start, with Josh Gray seeing some extended time off the bench.

In the unlikely event Ulis is able to play, numberFire's early projections see him getting 19.2 FanDuel points.
