Suns' Devin Booker: Out Sunday vs. Pistons
Booker (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pistons, Doug Haller of The Arizona Republic reports.
Booker indicated after Friday's loss to the Magic that his right ankle has been bothering him over the last couple of games, and given his long-term value to the franchise, the Suns don't want him to risk a more severe aggravation. With Booker joining Eric Bledsoe (knee), Brandon Knight (back), Leandro Barbosa (illness) and likely Ronnie Price (leg) on the sideline Sunday, the Suns could be forced to rely on T.J. Warren, a natural small forward, to see the bulk of the action at shooting guard. The newly-signed Jarell Eddie is also likely to see extended action in his team debut.
