Devin Booker underwent right hand surgery on Monday and is expected to miss six weeks of action.
It means Booker will miss training camp and the preseason. The regular season kicks off on October 16, so it’s possible that Booker misses the first week of action unless he beats his recovery timetable. Not to mention the ‘ramp-up’ games he’ll need to get back into shape considering he’s missing camp. The Suns aren’t too deep in the backcourt so they could turn to two-PG looks or backups Troy Daniels and De’Anthony Melton while Booker is sidelined. This should push Booker’s ADP down a bit but you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled for updates between now and opening night. If he does miss some regular season time you can spread his hefty usage across the rest of the Suns roster.
