Booker carried off with groin injury in Suns loss to Raptors

TORONTO (AP) The Phoenix Suns are heading home from their season-high six-game trip anxious about the health of star guard Devin Booker.

Booker injured his groin while the Toronto Raptors beat the Suns 126-113 on Tuesday night. Preliminary tests showed Booker strained his left adductor while playing defense with 2:40 left in the fourth quarter. Booker froze in place near midcourt, and trainers came out to examine him before two teammates carried him off the floor and into the locker room.

''It's tough,'' Suns center Greg Monre said.'' He's obviously one of the great young players in this league. He's having an outstanding year right now, so you definitely don't want to see him get injured.''

Booker, who shook off a 2-for-11 start to score a season-high 46 points Monday in a win at Philadelphia, shot 0 for 7 in the first half Tuesday. He finished 4 for 15 with 19 points, including 10 of 12 from the foul line.

A team staffer had to help Booker limp to his stall in the locker room after being examined. Booker declined to speak to reporters.

''I'm sure they'll have to do an MRI or something to make sure we take care of him the right way,'' Suns interim coach Jay Triano said.

Phoenix is off Wednesday before hosting Washington Thursday.

Now in his third season, Booker came in averaging a team-high 24.5 points per game.

''Any time you have to get carried off it's always a scare, especially someone like him and how valuable he is to our team,'' Suns forward Jared Dudley said

Kyle Lowry had 20 points and 10 assists, DeMar DeRozan scored 20 points and Toronto improved its NBA-best home record to 9-1. Serge Ibaka scored 19 points and OG Anunoby matched his career high with 16 as Toronto won its fourth straight and seventh in a row at home.

Anunoby's four 3-pointers were a career-high.

''He played excellent tonight,'' Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. ''Didn't try to do too much. He took what the game gave him.''

The Raptors, who have scored 100 or more points in 10 consecutive games, almost reached triple digits in three quarters Tuesday. Toronto led 97-79 heading to the fourth and weren't seriously challenged in the final frame.

Monroe had 11 points and 10 rebounds as the weary Suns wrapped up a six-game, 10-day road trip with their seventh of 15 back-to-backs this season. Phoenix is 3-4 in the second game of back-to-backs.

TIP-INS

Suns: F T.J. Warren was ejected after picking up two technical fouls in quick succession in the third. Marquese Chriss was also called for a technical shortly after Warren's ejection. ...

OFF THE BOARDS
