LOS ANGELES — It’s Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals, if you can come close to playing, you take the court.
Payne tweaked his ankle in Game 3 and didn’t play in the second half, and the Suns missed his change-of-pace speed off the bench. He took part in shootaround on Saturday and will be good to go in Game 4, Monty Williams said.
Williams added that Abdel Nader — who has been out with a sore knee — has been cleared to play in Game 4 and added: “I expect him to play well.”
Morris has not missed a game this series but has been hobbled from the start.
“He said he feels good,” Lue said of Morris.
The Suns lead the series 2-1, but the Clippers took Game 3 at home on Thursday night.
