 How long is Devin Booker out? Suns guard leaves OT loss with leg injury

The Suns were without their leading scorer, guard Devin Booker, for the final 1:54 of their overtime loss to the Nuggets on Friday night after he suffered an apparent leg injury. It’s unlikely they will have him back for the teams’ back-to-back rematch Saturday night.

Booker looked to be hurt on a drive to the basket with two minutes remaining in OT. He limped to the bench after the play and was replaced by Cameron Payne.

Phoenix coach Monty Williams told reporters postgame (per ArizonaSports.com) that Booker injured a hamstring and probably will not be available for Saturday’s game.

Before he was hurt, Booker had a team-high 31 points to go with five rebounds and five assists in 40 minutes. He also lit up Twitter with a chasedown block and assist following a turnover.

Booker is averaging 22.9 points per game after his 31 points Friday.
