Just a few possessions into the game, Phoenix Suns star player Devin Booker exited with a left groin injury and will not return for the game according to the Phoenix Suns.

This is the same injury that has kept Booker out over the last three games and it has appeared to reaggravate after the first 4 possessions of the game. In that final possession, you can see Booker walking back down the court with something bothering him and just a few moments later, he got subbed out for Landry Shamet and went straight to the locker room.
For the remainder of the game, the Suns are going to have to look to find a way to escape tonight with a victory without their star player on the floor.
