Devin Booker out at least a month with left groin strain
The Phoenix Suns are 2-4 in games Devin Booker has missed this season, their offense is 9.6 points per 100 possessions worse when he is off the court (they play at a league-best level on offense with him and a Wizards-like level without him).
All of which is concerning because Booker will be out for at least a month with a strained groin, the team announced.
INJURY UPDATE: Further evaluation has confirmed that Devin Booker has sustained a left groin strain. He will be re-evaluated in four weeks.— Phoenix Suns (@Suns) December 28, 2022
Booker had missed three games but tried to play through the groin strain on Christmas Day against the Nuggets. He lasted just four minutes before re-injuring himself.
Expect a lot more Landry Shamet in Phoenix. The Suns have battled several injuries this season but this is the biggest blow and for the next month the current fifth seed in the West will be looking to keep their heads above water in a deep conference.
