PHOENIX — Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker is expected to be sidelined two to three weeks because of a groin injury.
The Suns said Wednesday that Booker strained his left adductor late in a 126-113 loss in Toronto on Tuesday night and would have an MRI. Booker froze in place near midcourt, and trainers came out to examine him before two teammates awkwardly carried him off the floor.
Booker had 19 points against the Raptors after scoring a season-high 46 points Monday night in a victory in Philadelphia.
The 21-year-old Booker is 10th in the NBA in scoring with a 24.3 average. In 25 games, he’s also averaging 4.5 rebounds and 4.1 assists. He had a career-high 70 last season at Boston.
Coming off a six-game trip, the Suns return to play Thursday night against Washington.
