Devin Booker Carried Off Court With Groin Injury

The Phoenix Suns were unable to pick up a victory on Tuesday evening, falling by a final score of 126-113 to the Toronto Raptors. As VanVleet crossed halfcourt, Booker grabbed his groin area in pain.

Suns interim head coach Jay Triano kept things in perspective when asked about Bookers injury after the game, per ESPN.

Coming off a 46-point outburst against the 76ers on Monday, Booker finished with 19 points and eight assists in 39 minutes. "He's having an outstanding year right now, so you definitely don't want to see him get injured".

Booker has come into his own after being selected 13th in the 2015 Draft. Then again, they've also been pretty bad with Booker. He's scored more than 20 points in a game twice this season, topping out at 26 in a loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves late last month.

The once-promising Suns backcourt is already without Eric Bledsoe after he was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in November and will have to make do without Booker for some time.

They'll just be far less entertaining for the next few weeks.
