Suns: Devin Booker out 2-3 weeks

Devin Booker is, by far, the Suns’ biggest bright spot.

But he suffered a serious-looking groin strain last night. Thankfully for Phoenix, the injury isn’t as severe as some feared.


The Suns will be pretty bad without Booker. Then again, they’ve also been pretty bad with Booker.

They’ll just be far less entertaining for the next few weeks. Booker is a dazzling scorer.

Troy Daniels is in line for a much bigger role, but Phoenix is thin at shooting guard. The Suns probably must turn at times to a small backcourt with Tyler Ulis and Mike James (after clearing a roster spot to give two-way James a standard contract) and/or bigger lineups with Josh Jackson or Derrick Jones Jr. at shooting guard.
