Just one night after scoring 46 points in a victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker had to be knocked down by his teammates after suffering an apparent groin injury in the fourth quarter against Toronto Raptors.  Booker was protecting the Raptors guard, Fred VanVleet, in the middle of the court when he raised his eyebrows. He remained in the same place on the court until he was helped by his teammates of the Suns.
After the game, the Suns said that Booker had suffered a stretched adductor and will be reassessed when the team returns to Phoenix. 19659004] Update of injuries: Devin Booker has a tensed left adductor. It will be evaluated when the team returns to Phoenix.

If Booker is out for an extended period of time, as it seems to be, this is pretty much the worst case for the Suns. He has increased his scoring average to 24.5 points this season after averaging 22.1 last season. Entering Tuesday's game against the Raptors, Booker had scored 30 or more points in three of the team's four previous games.
Booker is the only glimmer of hope in a pretty grim franchise, and Phoenix will have serious problems putting the ball in the basket while Booker is out of alignment.
