Booker posted 28 points (10-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and seven assists across 36 minutes in Saturday's 107-99 win over the Timberwolves.
Booker looked excellent after a six-game absence, as the Suns locked in their first two-game win streak since 2017. Phoenix lost five of six games without Booker, who is the unquestioned leader of the team in his fourth season. He was averaging 23.5 points and 6.7 assists prior to his injury, and he should return to form moving forward.
Booker (hamstring) will play and start Saturday against the Timberwolves, Jon Bloom of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.
Booker will make his return after a six-game absence. In moving back into the starting five, De'Anthony Melton will probably head to the bench.
Coach Igor Kokoskov indicated that Booker (hamstring) will likely be available Saturday against Minnesota, Duane Rankin of AZCentral.com reports. "He looks good," Kokoskov said. "To play it safe, I would say questionable, but there is a very good chance he's going to play and if he plays, he's going to start."
This is obviously an encouraging development for Booker, who is on course to miss just six games with a hamstring injury that initially looked like it may cost him more time. If Booker is ultimately cleared, expect him to move back into the starting lineup, likely replacing De'Anthony Melton at point guard.
Booker (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Timberwolves, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.
Booker has been sidelined for the last six games with a hamstring strain, but this is the first time since suffering that injury that he has entered a game with a questionable tag. Even if Booker does not suit up for Saturday's game, it is clear that the star guard is close to making his return to the floor. Look for another update on Booker's status to come following shootaround Saturday morning.
Booker (hamstring) is out Thursday against the Mavericks, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.
Booker will miss a sixth straight matchup Thursday while recovering from a left hamstring strain. De'Anthony Melton has stepped up, averaging 27.0 fantasy points when Booker is sidelined. Troy Daniels, Elie Okobo, Josh Jackson and Mikal Bridges have also seen extra minutes in the backcourt.
