The Phoenix Suns will begin life without Steve Nash this week when they open the season against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday.

Nash signed with Los Angeles Lakers in the off-season and will be replaced by Goran Dragic in the Suns' starting lineup.

Phoenix also added Luis Scola, Michael Beasley and Jermaine O'Neal through free agency and traded for Wes Johnson. The Suns drafted Kendall Marshall out of North Carolina 13th overall in the 2012 NBA Draft.

Golden State will feature Marshall's college teammate and seventh overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft Harrison Barnes in the lineup on Wednesday.

The NBA season will tip-off on Tuesday with a double-header beginning with the Miami Heat versus the Boston Celtics at 8 p.m. ET on TNT. Dwight Howard will make his regular season debut with the Lakers in the second game when Los Angeles hosts the Dallas Mavericks.
