Devin Booker out 2-3 weeks — Suns

Share

The team announced after the game that Booker suffered a strained left adductor (groin injury).

Booker was wheeled through the airport in Toronto after the game - and while he didn't say much, you can see he looks pretty sad. Booker also is tied with LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo with the most 30-point games this season with ten.

The once-promising Suns backcourt is already without Eric Bledsoe after he was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in November and will have to make do without Booker for some time.


Booker, a 21-year-old in his third season after going 13th overall in the 2015 draft, is averaging 24.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists on the season.

James reached the 45-day limit on his two-way contract - an option for lower-level players whom teams use as G League components and occasional National Basketball Association depth - on Wednesday, and the Suns are deciding to make him a more permanent part of their team. Booker is one of the few reasons to watch the team play as now constructed because he's blossoming into an offensive star.
