  • Devin Booker - G - Phoenix Suns

    Devin Booker scored 32 points with 11 assists in a game-high 38 minutes in a loss over the Hornets on Saturday.

    Surprisingly, Booker did not turnover the ball in today's game much to the delight of his owners. The 38 minutes he tallied was three more than what he registered in the previous game and is assuring us that the back spasms he endured lately might be behind him already. Injuries have been plaguing him this year but we hope that this is the last of it.

    Devin Booker dropped 30 points (10-of-21 FG, 4-of-9 3PT, 6-of-9 FT) against the Raptors on Thursday to go with two rebounds and eight assists.

    Booker played 35 minutes, which is a nice sign after he played 27 in his first game back from a case of back spasms. It looks like all systems go for Booker, at least until the next minor thing turns into a week on the shelf. Keep your fingers crossed.

    Devin Booker (back spasms) returned to action in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Pacers, scoring eight points on 4-of-12 shooting with five rebounds and five assists over 27 minutes.

    Booker did not hit a three and he turned it over four times, committing five fouls as well. The good news is that he got back on the court and now the next challenge will be making his teammates better rather than chucking up a bunch of shots, which to his credit we've seen him doing since the Trevor Ariza trade.

    Devin Booker (back spasms) will not have a minutes limit on Tuesday.

    Booker is returning to the lineup after missing the previous three games and should go right back into his high-usage role. Josh Jackson heads to the bench and he and De'Anthony Melton are the easy calls, while Booker's return may also impact Kelly Oubre a little bit. He's still a hold barring a drastic change and Booker, of course, belongs in all lineups.

    Devin Booker (back) will play in Tuesday's game vs. the Pacers.

    After practicing on Monday it looks like Booker will give it a go in Tuesday's game. He's missed the last three but he'll be back without a minutes limit and he'll once again be the Suns' primary ball handler and scorer. Booker being back will diminish the production of both De'Anthony Melton and Josh Jackson while also putting a damper on Kelly Oubre.

    Devin Booker (back) participated in practice on Monday.

    Booker is still without an official status heading into Tuesday's game vs. the Pacers but it's good that he's practicing. He's missed the last three games with back spasms and the Suns seem to be exercising caution at every step of the way when it comes to Booker. With Booker out, De'Anthony Melton, Josh Jackson and Kelly Oubre have stepped up and produced for both the Suns and fantasy owners.

    Devin Booker (back spasms) will not be playing in Saturday's game according to Kellan Olson on Twitter.

    This is the third game that Booker has missed due to his back spasms and the Suns are in no rush to bring back their franchise cornerstone considering that they're in tank mode in this point of the season. His injury is not something that should be undermined hence we can expect more games off from him until Igor KokoŇ°kov gives the go signal. Expect Josh Jackson, De'Anthony Melton and Kelly Oubre to soak up his minutes and step up.

    While Devin Booker (back spasms) remains questionable, Igor Kokoskov says that there's a "slim chance" Booker plays on Saturday.

    Josh Jackson will start again if Booker ends up sitting, as expected. This will be the third straight game on the sidelines for Booker, and fantasy owners have to be hoping for some kind of update either after tonight's game or during tomorrow's practice before they set lineups for next week.

    The Suns are now calling Devin Booker (back spasms) questionable to play on Saturday.

    Considering Booker missed Friday's practice session we'd think it's unlikely Booker suits up on Saturday, especially considering the tanking Suns have no incentive to rush him back. We should have an update after shootaround tomorrow, so check back in to see if anything changes.

    Devin Booker (back spasms) missed Friday's practice and is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Nuggets.

    Booker will probably miss a third straight game with back issues. With the Suns generally a tire fire, it makes sense for them to take it easy on their franchise player. Josh Jackson figures to start again.

    Devin Booker (back spasms) will not play on Wednesday night.

    Booker was initially listed as doubtful and didn't play last night so this is not a surprise. Josh Jackson will start again while De'Anthony Melton takes over the full-time point guard work. There will be more shots available for everyone, with Jamal Crawford and Kelly Oubre coming off of nice games among the reserves.

    Devin Booker (back spasms) is doubtful for Wednesday's game.

    Not unexpected considering the Suns are on a back-to-back and he sat out last night. Josh Jackson will start in his place with De'Anthony Melton playing more of a pure point guard role.

    Devin Booker (back) is out against the Kings on Tuesday.

    Booker will sit, which means Josh Jackson gets a bump. Consider Booker doubtful on Wednesday as well.

    Devin Booker (back spasms) has been downgraded to doubtful on Tuesday.

    Booker was originally questionable and said to be day-to-day but the Suns won't rush him back. It casts major doubt on his availability for Wednesday's game as well. Josh Jackson should start in his place as De'Anthony Melton shifts back to a true point guard role. There will be more shots and touches for just about all the Suns for as long as Booker is out.

    Devin Booker (back spasms) was unable to take part in Tuesday's shootaround and while he's still questionable for Tuesday's game against the Kings, Igor Kokoskov leaned towards Booker sitting out.

    Booker only played 12 minutes on Sunday before leaving. Josh Jackson started the second half in his place that night and would be back on points league radars if Booker indeed missed some games. Deandre Ayton and T.J. Warren are going to see more shots and usage while De'Anthony Melton might push closer to 30 mpg. Booker's injuries continue to pile up this season.
