Anthony Tolliver sustained a minor injury in practice, but there's nothing to get worked up about.

Bum luck for one of the newest Phoenix Suns, Anthony Tolliver. The forward sustained a right hand injury in practice today, requiring three stitches. According to a Paul Coro tweet, Tolliver got his finger caught in a jersey during a Suns practice at Northern Arizona University. He will be out for about a week, which means he will probably miss the first couple of preseason games against Flamengo (Brazil) on October 8 and the Denver Nuggets on October 10.

This is unfortunate for a player learning a new system, but it shouldn't be anything to get worried about. Coro's tweet also contained the picture below, which shows Tolliver on a stationary bike with his bandaged hand.

Tolliver injury

At least Tolliver isn't letting the injury stop him from getting in shape, right? Hopefully he'll be ready to go by the Houston Rockets preseason game on October 13. At any rate, there's no reason to think he'll miss any regular season action from the injury.

The 6-8 forward was signed by the Suns in July on a 2 year, $6 million deal.

The Suns announced that forward Anthony Tolliver will miss a week after suffering a right hand laceration during Friday practice. Paul Coro reported that Tolliver’s hand got caught in a...

At Media Day on Monday the Suns officially introduced their newest signed player Zoran Dragi? to the fans and media.

Ryan McDonough started the introduction describing how he's been scouting Zoran for a while now, but even more closely so, since last year's Eurobasket in Slovenia when the Dragi? brothers shined for the host nation. They repeated their success on an even bigger stage this year in Spain, with Zoki at times outperforming his All-NBA brother. After approaching Goran Dragic with the idea first and him of course being all aboard, the wheels turned and Zoran Dragic is now a Phoenix Sun.

As a Slovenian this presser got me all mushy and proud and every time I've seen him in a Suns uniform since it just makes me happy all over. Zoran, for his part looked confident enough, his English is better than I knew and he has this cool demeanour about him. I loved how he smoothly renounces the nickname his big bro tried to bestow on him. We get a little glimpse of Zoki-  the pleasant, bright, calm guy, who much like his brother transforms into an aggressive force (with the added energy of a 3 year younger Dragic gene) when stepping on court.

When asked who was more happy he'd signed with the Suns; him or Goran, Zoran's answer is "probably I was" though Gogi provides a better quip of camera: "Our mom" - surely true. But since Tom Leander pointed out in a later interview that he couldn't have slapped the smile of the Dragon's face throughout the press conference we'll call it a tie between the bros.

Two more fun things:

  • Ryan is only human; he mixes up his dragon's names and replaces the Z for a G by mistake. Wonder how many times that will be a problem.
  • Zoki speaks Slovene in this video. Okay, so it's only one word (something like "I mean") and he says it while correcting himself, but still. See if you hear it.
