Update on Ty Jerome
Phoenix rookie Ty Jerome has missed the first seven games of his rookie season, and Suns coach Monty Williams said Monday that there is no timetable in place for Jerome to return.
“If I had to guess, he is a ways away,” Williams said. “He hasn’t done any court work yet. He is out of the boot but that doesn’t mean much. I have kind of, not put him out of my mind but he hasn’t done anything on the floor where I can even think about him being in the mix.”
In four preseason games, Jerome averaged 6.8 points, 3.8 assists and one steal while shooting 45.8 percent from the field.
