There is more than one anxiously anticipated comeback of a Suns big man.
Kurt Thomas expects to return to Phoenix today, looking more like the interior anchor who went out with a foot stress fracture just as the Suns were at their best in late February.
Thomas confirmed he is back to the playing shape (about 245 pounds) that he was in before the injury, which kept him inactive for the final two months of the regular season and out of the rotation upon being activated in the playoffs. advertisement
"I don't feel any pain," said Thomas, who spends his summers in Dallas. "I'm really looking forward to being back with the team.
"I just want to come back and play. I missed the game. I'm excited to get back on the floor. I'm feeling great and healthy and I'm playing on a great team with great guys."
