Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) – The Phoenix Suns activated guard Leandro
Barbosa from the injured list Friday and released guard William “Smush” Parker
from his second 10-day contract.

Barbosa is averaging 5.6 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 30 games this
season. He was placed on the injured list January 19, one day after spraining
his left ankle by stepping on teammate Steve Nash’s foot in practice.

Parker, who signed two 10-day contracts with Phoenix, averaged 3.0 points in
five games with the team. He originally signed with the Suns on January 19.
