Devin Booker sustained a left adductor strain in the fourth quarter of Tuesday night’s game at Toronto.
The Brightest Spot of the Suns will be sidelined for 3 weeks.
The 21-year-old and the 2015, 13th pick overall of the Pheonix Suns is injured and will be out for at least 3 weeks as confirmed by the team. Booker suffered a left adductor strain in the fourth quarter against Toronto Raptors.
Booker is the leading scorer and the go-to guy for the struggling Suns. His averages are 24 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists. The Suns is already pretty bad with him and is currently with 9 wins and 17 losses. Without the main m, n you can expect the Suns to further fade especially if other players will not step up.
Josh Jackson, Derrick Jones Jr, Tyler Ullis and Mike James should have bigger roles during the 3 -week period. Troy Daniel may also see an increase in minutes but don’t expect the Suns to start winning games and with Devin Booker out of the lineup, the people may have lesser reasons to watch the Suns play, unless they start winning again.

We all know the upside of Devin Booker. He is the face of Phoenix Suns already and he continue to improve year-by-year. With all of this, no one really think that Devin can drop 70 points against the Celtics today at TD garden.
Booker’s 70-point night was the highest-scoring game since Kobe Bryant scored 81 in 2006, and the most points ever scored against the Celtics. He joined an elite club including Elgin Baylor (who held the record with 64 against Boston), Wilt Chamberlain, David Thompson and David Robinson.
But this scoring rampage of Booker wasn’t enough to lift the Phoenix Suns against the Boston Celtics with a score of 130 – 120 in favor of the guys in green.
This guys seems legit! We are seeing a superstar in the making!
Let me start by saying that this man is going to be big in the NBA!
The 20 year old, 2015 13th overall draft pick of the Phoenix Suns has been turning heads this year and the game against the Celtics will break a lot more neck as he is proving that he is the future of the Suns Franchise. The sophomore who averages 13 points in his rookie year is now averaging more than 20 points per game.
Although the Suns lost, the night was historic for Phoenix and the young Devin Booker as he breaks franchise Record for Most Points previously held by Tom Chambers in a game. Booker booked 70 points with 21/40 shooting. That is just astonishing!
Booker joins an elite squad comprises of Wilt Chamberlain, Kobe Bryant, David Thompson, David Robinson and Elgin Baylor as the NBA’s 70-point scorers.
