Suns' Devin Booker: 'He's ready' for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Igor Kokoskov reiterated that Booker will be ready for Wednesday's season opener against Dallas, AZCentral.com reports.

This isn't breaking news, as the Suns announced Monday that Booker will be available, but Kokoskov left no doubt when asked about his star guard's health. "Devin's going to play on Wednesday," Kokoskov said. "There's no secret. He's ready. He's playing. He's excited." That should eliminate any remaining shred of doubt regarding Booker's injury situation, but it's still a bit unclear how, exactly, Booker will be used. The Suns still don't have a true NBA-caliber point guard on the roster, so the expectation is that Booker may fill that role for the time being, as he did for parts of last season.

Suns' Devin Booker: Will play in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Igor Kokoskov said Monday that Booker (hand) will play in Wednesday's season opener against the Mavericks, Duane Rankin of AZCentral.com reports.

Booker resumed participating in 5-on-5 work this weekend after being cleared for contact, and he has now been cleared to play in Wednesday's contest after undergoing hand surgery back on September 10. This puts him slightly ahead of his original six-week recovery timetable, but it's hard to imagine the Suns bringing their star guard back early if he wasn't 100 percent ready. It's unclear whether or not Booker will have a minutes restriction placed on him for Wednesday's game, but all the details surrounding his status should come well before tip-off against Dallas.

Suns' Davon Reed: Will be traded or waived
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed will be waived or traded by the Suns on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

The Suns need to move three players to get under the roster limit, and Reed will apparently be one of those casualties. Working a trade appears to be the first option, but if Phoenix can't find a suitor, expect the Miami (FL) product to be released before the end of the day.

Suns' Devin Booker: Resumes 5-on-5 work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Booker (hand) was cleared Saturday to take contact in 5-on-5 practices, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports. "He looked good," coach Igor Kokoskov said. "As we all know, on any level that you play, when you're recovering from something, an injury, there's some kind of hesitation when it comes to the contact, but I don't see that in Book."

Booker was handed a six-week recovery timeline when he underwent surgery on his right hand Sept. 10, but the 22-year-old is hopeful to beat that timetable by about a week and suit up for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Mavericks. Considering Booker has remained ahead of schedule through all steps of the rehab process thus far, he seems poised to achieve that goal, though it's unclear where he stands from a conditioning standpoint. With that in mind, it's uncertain that he'll take on his usual minutes load once he's ultimately cleared for game action, though it shouldn't be long before he's in optimal shape. Perhaps more so than potentially missing time to begin the season, the more significant consequence of Booker's injury is that it has prevented him from getting his feet wet at point guard in exhibition play. Booker is expected to open the season at his normal position at shooting guard, but with no established floor generals currently on the roster aside from 38-year-old Jamal Crawford, the Suns could eventually lean more heavily on Booker in more of a playmaking role.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Good to go for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges (elbow) has returned to full health, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

Bridges had been held out of the final three preseason games because of a left elbow issue, but he says he now feels "100 percent." The rookie first-round pick will likely be slated for a depth role on the wing to begin the season, but should see his minutes pick up as the campaign unfolds.
