Do the Suns beat the Pelicans without Devin Booker? – 1:57 PM

Vivek Jacob @vivekmjacob
These injuries to Booker and Middleton suck. I really hope Doncic doesn’t come back until he’s absolutely ready and the Raptors gotta be prudent about Barnes facing an 0-3 hole, too. – 1:55 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
I think Devin Booker is clearly the most important player on the Suns. I also think the panic that we’ve got suddenly a real series on our hands is bordering on Chris Paul slander. – 1:52 PM

Bummer for Devin Booker and the Suns if 2-3 weeks is indeed the timetable for a return, but this group still has more than enough to win this series. Defense has to be better and guys have to step up as they’ve done all season – 1:42 PM

Tuesday was truly a special day. We surprised the Flint Affiliation basketball players with free Puma sneakers. The shoes were purchased with proceeds of our new book, “All In: The Kelvin Torbert Story.” Everyone also received a free book. #AllIn

Khimki reached the EuroLeague playoffs in 2017-18 season.
Last season they had players like Alexey Shved, Devin Booker and Jordan Mickey in their roster, but they faced financial problems.
Nowadays Khimki is fighting in Super League (2nd tier in Russia) relegation group. 🤯 – 9:30 AM

Took a look at the impact of Devin Booker’s hamstring strain: espn.com/nba/insider/st… (ESPN+) – 5:31 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Devin Booker missed 7 games with left hamstring strain in December.
#Suns went 5-2, but I’m looking at three different numbers.
30. 19. 3
Booker hurt left hamstring Nov. 30 vs. Warriors.
Returned Dec. 19 vs. Hornets.
That’s nearly 3 weeks. So I expect him out Game 3 and 4. – 5:02 PM

Jeff Stotts @InStreetClothes
Re: Devin Booker: The term mild suggests a low grade strain. He has a history of hamstring strains having previously missed time w/ issues on each leg. The left has been historically more problematic but he missed 2 games during the 2018-19 season w/ right hamstring tightness. – 3:28 PM

You could make two playoff teams with the current injuries.
First team:
— Luka Doncic
— Devin Booker
— Scottie Barnes
— Zion Williamson
— Rob Williams
Second team:
— Jamal Murray
— Lonzo Ball
— Michael Porter Jr
— Ben Simmons
— Clint Capela
Hoping we see these guys soon. pic.twitter.com/JteouEWgNA2:31 PM

There’s still an evaluation ongoing on MRI results of Phoenix Suns All-Star Devin Booker’s right hamstring, but it appears unlikely he will be able to play in Games 3 and 4 in New Orleans, sources tell ESPN. – 2:25 PM

More on this storyline

Sources told ESPN on Wednesday that Booker would likely miss Games 3 and 4 against the New Orleans Pelicans and that the Suns were still evaluating his MRI results to get a full picture of the injury and a clearer timeline for a return. -via ESPN / April 21, 2022

Duane Rankin: Quick FYI: Devin Booker (hamstring) made trip to New Orleans. #Suns #Pelicans -via Twitter @DuaneRankin / April 20, 2022

Adrian Wojnarowski: The right hamstring strain is believed to be mild and Devin Booker isn’t being ruled out of this opening-round series vs. New Orleans, sources tell ESPN. -via Twitter @wojespn / April 20, 2022
