ORLANDO – Suns guard Raja Bell will miss tonight’s game with the Magic, a night after spraining his right ankle Friday night in Miami.

Bell, who came down on the foot of Heat center Shaquille O’Neal after a jump shot with 3:38 left in the game, was still moving gingerly Saturday, although Phoenix coach Mike D’Antoni was optimistic that Bell might be able to play on Tuesday, when the Suns open a two-game homestand against the New York Knicks.

Leandro Barbosa will start in place of Bell, and rookie D.J. Strawberry could be the first guard off the bench – with Marcus Banks struggling with his play and nursing a sore shoulder.
