In what is now a sort of running joke, Phoenix Suns point guard Devin Booker missed the team’s last matchup with a toe injury. The injury didn’t happen on the court, but in his hotel room before the team’s game against the Clippers on November 28th.
“I stubbed it in my hotel room,” Booker told azcentral.com. “Kicked it into the bed. Worst I ever have.”
Booker is set to Play Against the Lakers
Though the injury is a bit silly–Booker called it “childish”–at least it wasn’t more serious. He only missed one game and is set to play in tonight’s game against LeBron and the Lakers.
He looked more than okay as he nailed this halfcourt shot during the team’s practice yesterday:
Though the Phoenix Suns are currently sitting at the very bottom of the Western Conference–their record is an abysmal 4-18–Devin Booker is a standout. The fourth-year player is averaging 24.5 points per game, along with 3.7 rebounds and 7 assists.
