Suns' Childress breaks finger against Warriors

Posted Oct 20 2010 2:54AM

PHOENIX (AP) -- Phoenix Suns forward Josh Childress broke his right index finger in Tuesday night's exhibition victory over the Golden State Warriors.

The Suns say Childress will have no basketball activity for a week, then will be re-evaluated. He was injured when he was fouled on a drive to the basket with 7:54 left in the game. He left the contest but returned with 5:39 to go and played the rest of the way.

The Suns acquired the rights to Childress in an offseason sign-and-trade deal with the Atlanta Hawks. Childress played the last two seasons in Greece after a contract dispute with the Hawks. The former Stanford star was the sixth pick overall in the 2004 draft.
