After veteran guard Paul was missing, Phoenix suffered from injury dominoes, and in the aftermath, struggled and fell from the top of the Western Conference to the bottom. Phoenix is ​​currently 23-24 with a win rate of less than .50 and is in 10th place in the West. Above all, the biggest problem is that the team is struggling to operate due to the successive injuries. Phoenix currently has seven players on the injury list, including Paul. Ace Devin Booker (26, 196cm) has no promises when he will return.
