Devin Booker Expected To Miss Time With Hamstring Injury

Suns guard Devin Booker is expected to miss multiple games due to the left hamstring injury he sustained during Tuesday’s win over the Warriors, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported during a TV appearance this afternoon (video link).

Wojnarowski said Booker’s hamstring ailment is “not believed to be a serious injury,” but the Suns will err on the side of caution with their leading scorer. The expectation is that Booker will miss “at least a few games,” according to Wojnarowski. That means he’ll likely be unavailable for Phoenix’s rematch vs. the Warriors in Golden State this Friday.

Booker, who left Tuesday’s game in the second quarter and didn’t return, has averaged 23.2 PPG, 4.9 RPG, and 4.5 APG on .458/.403/.857 shooting in 21 games (32.2 MPG) this season for a Suns team that now leads the NBA with an 18-3 record.

Cameron Johnson will likely be in line for a bigger role with Booker out. He played a season-high 29 minutes on Tuesday, replacing Booker to start the second half and in the Suns’ closing lineup. Landry Shamet is another candidate for more playing time.
