The Phoenix Suns will be without star shooting guard Devin Booker for at least four weeks due to a groin strain. After further evaluation, the extent of the injury was discovered and the team will reevaluate Booker in four weeks. He was initially injured in the team’s 128-125 overtime Christmas Day loss to the Denver Nuggets. Booker left that game in the first quarter and did not return. The team hoped to have Booker back fairly quickly, but now those plans have changed and they won’t have Booker back until late January at the earliest.
INJURY UPDATE: Further evaluation has confirmed that Devin Booker has sustained a left groin strain. He will be re-evaluated in four weeks.

He has paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 47.7 percent and a three-point percentage of 37.0 percent. Booker is an invaluable member of the Phoenix Suns and they could struggle a lot without him on the court for at least a month. The Phoenix Suns are currently sitting as the 5th seed in the Western Conference with an overall record of 20-15. They are currently three games behind the one seed and three and a half games behind missing the NBA Play-in games altogether. We here at Def Pen Sports wish Booker the best in his recovery and return to the basketball court.
