Devin Booker suffers an adductor strain, will be further evaluated in Phoenix

A night after registering his second-career 40-point game, Devin Booker went down late in the fourth quarter against the Toronto Raptors. Shortly after, the team called the injury a left adductor strain and Booker would be further evaluated in Phoenix.

With 2:40 left in the fourth quarter and the Suns down 11, Booker routinely picked up Raptors guard Fred VanVleet full court. As VanVleet crossed over to his right hand near half-court, Booker took a step over the center court logo and immediately grabbed at his groin. 

He was unable to get out of his defensive stance and had to be carried off the court by Tyson Chandler and Alex Len.

On Friday night, Pelicans star big man Anthony Davis suffered a similar injury against the Utah Jazz and needed a wheelchair to help him to the locker room.

Davis has missed the last two contests for the New Orleans Pelicans but is considered day-to-day, after an MRI revealed no structural damage in his pelvic region.

The Suns next game is at home on Thursday night against the Washington Wizards. Phoenix won the first matchup this season against the Wizards, 122-116 on November 1.
