It looks as if the Brazilian Blur is going to remain a visible fixture on the Suns bench the next two games after spraining his left ankle Sunday against Toronto.

While going up for a jump shot, Leandro Barbosa was fouled by the Raptors’ Marco Belinelli and landed on the foot of forward Hedo Turkoglu. X-rays came back as negative, but the swelling will keep Barbosa out of the last two games of the current four-game road trip that continues with the Knicks tomorrow and the Cavs on Wednesday.

“We won’t put a timetable on this,” Suns head athletic trainer Aaron Nelson said. “We’ll see test his range of motion after swelling stops. Usually an injury like this can last two to four weeks.”

After the swelling dissipates, the Suns training staff will test Barbosa to see if he’s ready to return to the court. The seventh-year guard had just returned to the lineup earlier this month after missing three games with an injured wrist.

The former Sixth Man of the Year is averaging 11.6 points a game, good for sixth on the team. He’s also shooting nearly 49 percent from the field and 41 percent from downtown.

The Suns will most likely re-activate Alando Tucker while Barbosa is sidelined.

    Rest up Leandro we need you for the long haul, the season isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon. The Knicks are next and their just the kind of rag tag misfits it’s so hard to get up for. DiAntoni would love to make his season knocking us off. Lets show New York why were the talk of the NBA.

    Leandro, you were lucky you didn’t play in the game against New York. Come to think of it neither did the rest of the Suns. Are you kidding me, we don’t score 100 for the first time this season against a team who’s coach can’t even spell defense? Then we give up 126 to a 3 win team who are light years away from the Suns talent level. If I didn’t know better I would think Di’Antoni was handed his Christmas gift early. I’ll be surprised if Stern doesn’t launch an investigation into this stinker. No excuse can be given for this one, just plain didn’t show up. I thought we were past this, guess not.

    well, lets hold our breath and get ready for Cleveland tonight. After the Knicks fiasco this could be the start of that hard to face thing called reality. Are the Suns just a good team that played over their heads so far, or are we the real thing? Look, I know one game an NBA season doesn’t make. However, the manner in which we lost to New York
    and the level of competition raises serious questions. Lets hope this was all just bad turkey.

  • JOHN SERPE

    It’s only halftime at Cleveland and already the earth is tilting on it’s axis. No, not from a prelude to 2012,rather from all the Suns fans jumping off the band wagon. What happened in two days that made this team go from wonder to blunder? Get ready fans this is what we all have had in the back of our minds but refused to think about. One thing about our Suns, they don’t just ease into horrible, they jump in with both feet. Just when you thought it was safe to believe, go figure.

    We miss you so much!!! Please get better soon cuz the suns are difenitely NOT shinning without you. Feel better babe :)
