Stay healthy

Health has affected the Suns' season greatly. Their stars have often suffered injuries throughout the season but still managed to be in the playoff race. Now imagine what the team's season would've looked like if their stars were healthy to start the season. 

Staying healthy for their final 13 games of the season will be extremely important. Not only because it could affect their playoff hopes - but it will also disrupt their chemistry. Given that they have less than 15 games left, the Suns probably have an ideal rotation that they're using to prepare for the playoffs. 

Recently, former NBA star Paul Pierce shared how he believes that a healthy trio of the Suns is something to behold. Although he didn't touch the subject of the team's playoff chances, his sharing his opinion about the team is a sign that Phoenix could be a problem in the postseason.

"Phoenix right now, when they’re healthy and Bradley Beal is out there. They’re a different team. I don’t really think that’s a good matchup for Milwaukee"

Being a healthy team is vital, especially in the postseason. Some teams from the past didn't reach their true potential due to injuries during the most important games. As long as the core of Devin Booker, Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal is healthy, the Suns have a shot at a deep playoff run.
