Devin Booker might be rested for Tuesday’s game against the Hawks according to a rumor relayed by Chris Vivlamore of the AJC.
It’s not crazy since this wouldn’t be the first rest rumor we’ve heard about Booker. If he’s hurt it’s one thing but if the Suns are resting a player that’s not old enough to buy beer that’s nuts. Jared Dudley could be a sneaky play if Booker cannot play and both Jarell Eddie and Derrick Jones Jr. would be longshots for value in his absence.
Update: Booker has been ruled out due to what is being called an ankle injury. Look for Tyler Ulis and T.J. Warren to get big usage boosts and it will be interesting to see if the Suns operate more efficiently without the chucker on the floor.
Earl Watson said that Devon Booker is out because injured his ankle in the 3Q of his 70-point game vs. Boston.
