All-NBA guard Devin Booker landed on the injury report after playing with a limp on opening night, raising doubts about his abilities going forward. Bradley Beal, an offseason addition, has already missed games for Phoenix due to a back issue.
After being declared doubtful for the first game of the season, Booker showed no symptoms of an injury, going on to score 32 points (on 13 of 21 shooting), dish out eight assists, and pull down six rebounds in the Suns’ hard-fought victory against the Warriors.
For what duration will Booker be unavailable for the Suns? What is known regarding his injuries is as follows.
What is Devin Booker’s injury?
The Suns have listed Booker on their injury report with left foot soreness.
Ahead of the season opener, Booker was listed as questionable with soreness in his left big toe. Despite the injury distinction, Booker logged 37 minutes of playing time against the Warriors.
It is unclear if the soreness in Booker’s left big toe was aggravated during the game or led to the soreness in the rest of his left foot.
How long will Devin Booker be out?
Beal was first listed as doubtful for Phoenix’s visit to the Lakers on Oct. 26. It’s the second game of a two-game trip to open the season before the Suns return to Phoenix for a three-game homestand.
The Suns have just one day off between their second and third game of the season before a two-day reset that precedes a series of two games against Victor Wembanyama and the Spurs.
