Devin Booker, nursing a calf injury, won’t be gracing the court in Friday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers, dashing hopes for his comeback during the Suns’ home stand, as per Underdog NBA.
Despite Suns head coach Frank Vogel acknowledging Booker’s progress after their recent win, a definite return timeline remains elusive.
Booker’s presence has been scarce, missing six of the Suns’ last seven games due to left foot and ankle problems followed by a more recent setback involving a right calf strain.
Vogel injected a ray of optimism by disclosing Booker’s involvement in a pregame workout last Wednesday.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding Friday’s game for Booker, Shams Charania’s report on “Run It Back” hints at a possible comeback alongside Bradley Beal during the Suns’ upcoming homestand which starts with the Lakers matchup, as reported earlier.
The eagerly awaited display of a dynamic trio with Booker, Beal, and Durant will have to temper its excitement, as Booker is likely to make his comeback on the court against the Oklahoma City Thunder this Sunday.
