Suns vs. Blazers: Sebastian Telfair late scratch due to wrist injury

Sebastian Telfair was expected to make his preseason debut for the Phoenix Suns on Friday night after missing the team's first game Wednesday with what had been described as a minor wrist injury. Just about hour before tip in Friday night, it's now reported that "Bassy" will be held out of this game as well.

Telfair was slated to return for tonight's preseason game but Gentry said he has been scratched again due to the bruise above his wrist.

Telfair played significant minutes for the Suns last season so his coach has a pretty good idea what to expect from the veteran backup point guard. The late scratch opens up more minutes for rookie Kendall Marshall to play behind starter, Goran Dragic at point.

The game is scheduled to tip off at 7:00 p.m. local time and will be broadcast on NBA TV.
