Monty Williams said that Devin Booker (forearm contusion) is unlikely to play on Monday.
Booker already missed one game with this issue. It's a blow to the Suns as Booker has averaged 25 points on 50.7 percent shooting thus far. Mikal Bridges is an intriguing play in the meantime.

Devin Booker (forearm contusion) will be a game-time call on Monday vs. the Blazers.
Booker already missed the last game with this injury, but looks close to making a return. Check back in closer to tipoff. Should he miss another game, Mikal Bridges would pick up more minutes while Cameron Johnson would likely have a large role in the offense as a floor spacer. Look for Kelly Oubre to dominate offensive touches with the first unit.

Devin Booker (sore wrist) is questionable to face the Blazers on Monday.
With Booker out look to guys like Ty Jerome, Eli Okobo and Tyler Johnson to get more action, but it could trickle down towards Mikal Bridges or Cam Johnson as well. Booker was listed as questionable on Saturday as well, it would be nice to see that injury label get bumped up to probable on Monday. Overall, the Suns remain in the thick of the Western Conference playoff race, and that will help secure Booker's early-round value throughout the fantasy season.

Mikal Bridges will start for the injured Devin Booker during Saturday's game versus the Spurs.
Bridges is worth a spot start and look in DFS, but we will see everyone in the starting lineup benefit from Booker's usage being distributed.

Devin Booker (sore wrist) will not play on Saturday against the Spurs.
Booker also missed practice on Friday due to a right forearm contusion, so we have some more clarity about the issue. Hopefully the injury doesn't sideline him into next week. Booker's absence will open up the guard rotation substantially, so players like Ty Jerome, Elie Okobo and Tyler Johnson should see more run, while the ripple effect could also benefit guys like Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson. Bridges is expected to start in Booker's place.

Devin Booker is questionable for Saturday's game with a right forearm contusion.
If Booker, who didn't practice on Friday, is unable to take the court, expect Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson to see some extra run.

Devin Booker found himself with a double-double at the end of Wednesday night's 115-108 loss to the Grizzlies, ending with 15 points and 10 assists on 6-of-17 from the field.
Booker hadn't reached double-digit assists since recording 10 in the season-opener. It's not something owners can count on, but it's nice to see it from time-to-time. He is hovering around the top-30 on the season, and will likely stay around there moving forward.

Devin Booker splashed 35 points along with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and two treys in Saturday's 109-115 loss to the Rockets.
The only downside to Booker's line was his uncharacteristic 11-of-16 shooting from the line. Before tonight's game, he was shooting 94.6 percent from the line for the season. Otherwise he was excellent shooting from the field, as he went 11-of-19, including 2-of-4 from three. He is one of the best young players in the game and will continue to put up plenty of popcorn stats.

Devin Booker scored 44 points in a near triple-double effort on Thursday, adding eight rebounds, nine assists and five 3-pointers.
Booker bounced back from a slow Wednesday with a herculean popcorn stat outing. The scoring efficiency continues to be a primary contributor to a top-40 output thus far. It seems like the bottom just has to fall out on this career-best 50-40-90 season.

Devin Booker had a slow Wednesday night by his standards, finishing with 17 points, three boards, five assists and a couple of 3-pointers.
Booker is hanging right around third-round value on the season, and will need to have better nights than this to stay up there. Wednesday's performance was not bad, but we've seen what he is capable of. He is one of the best young players in the game, and he we wouldn't be surprised to see him finish around the top-30.

Devin Booker had a solid game with 23 points (7-for-15 FGs, 6-for-7 FTs), four rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes in a 109-104 road win over the Hornets on Monday night.
If he could just get the steals up and the turnovers down, Booker would be an absolute fantasy star. Regardless, his improvement in both percentages this season has him in the top 20/35 (8-cat/9-cat) so far this season. Ricky Rubio also had a good night, putting up nine points, one rebound, 13 assists, four steals and a block.

Devin Booker scored 27 points in a team-high 38 minutes on Wednesday to go along with two 3-pointers, eight assists and two defensive counters.
It's a good line again from Booker who has been a great producer so far this year. The percentages are unsustainable and that's a lot of what has elevated his value in the early-going. Be aware that there is likely some fallback coming on that front, especially on the field goal percentage side.

Devin Booker just missed out on a triple-double in Saturday's road win over the Wolves, scoring 35 points on 12-of-26 shooting (0-for-5 3PTs, 11-of-11 FTs) with 12 rebounds, nine assists and one block over 38 minutes.
Booker is bringing back top-20 value in 9-cat leagues despite turning it over 4.1 times per game and there is a little bit of a sell-high bubble here. He's been a banged-up player in his young career but more importantly he's hitting 52.5 percent of his shots from the field and 94.9 percent from the foul line. Neither of those things will keep up, but be picky when you're doing a deal. Talent-wise he's not going to stop being good anytime soon.

Devin Booker was relatively quiet on Thursday, recording 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting with five rebounds, seven assists, two treys and six turnovers in 37 minutes.
The turnovers were a stinger for his owners in 9-cat leagues and you can credit the Pelicans' feisty defense for more than a few of those. Count it as an off-night for Booker and move on. He should bounce-back to his top-30 form in no time.
