After missing a month with an injured left knee, Suns center Robin Lopez will return to the lineup tomorrow against the Wolves.
The Suns center suffered a moderate sprain of the medial collateral ligament (MCL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) when teammate Jared Dudley crashed into him on November 14 against the Lakers. Up until that point, Lopez had started all nine games for the Suns this season, posting averages of 5.3 points and 4.3 rebounds a game in 17.8 minutes.
Upon returning to full five-on-five scrimmaging this past week, Lopez, the training staff and the coaching staff felt comfortable in letting him suit up Wednesday.
