UPDATE: Devin Booker Out 2-3 Weeks With Groin Strain

by December 06, 2017

UPDATE: Devin Booker is expected to miss between 2-3 weeks due to a left adductor strain, the Phoenix Suns announced Wednesday.

Original story: Devin Booker‘s teammates carried him off the floor Tuesday night in Toronto after he injured his groin late in the fourth quarter.

The Suns announced that the 21-year-old suffered a strained left adductor, and that further tests will be conducted once he’s back in Phoenix.

Booker is averaging 24.5 points a game, and finished with 19 in a 126-113 loss to the Raptors.

Per the AP:

โ€œItโ€™s tough,โ€ Suns center Greg Monroe said.โ€ Heโ€™s obviously one of the great young players in this league. Heโ€™s having an outstanding year right now, so you definitely donโ€™t want to see him get injured.โ€


Booker, who shook off a 2-for-11 start to score a season-high 46 points Monday in a win at Philadelphia, shot 0 for 7 in the first half Tuesday. He finished 4 for 15 with 19 points, including 10 of 12 from the foul line.


โ€œAny time you have to get carried off itโ€™s always a scare, especially someone like him and how valuable he is to our team,โ€ Suns forward Jared Dudley said.
