The Suns are a few games closer to getting their starting lineup back for the first time in 3 months as reports came out in the morning shoot-around that Devin Booker could return sometime this week according to AZ Central Duane Rankin.

Booker hasn’t been on the floor since Christmas day when he re-injured his groin 4 minutes into the game against the Denver Nuggets. Since then, the Suns have lost a lot more than they have won.
With Cam Johnson and Chris Paul returning just a week ago, the Suns have found a little life in the win column as they have gotten above .500 for the first time in a while. With Booker coming back this just opens more opportunities for the Suns to get back to the top of the Western Conference.
This Past Month Shows Just How Valuable Devin Booker is To the Suns
The Suns are getting ready to play the Toronto Raptors later tonight at Footprint Center. Booker will most likely be returning at some point this weekend if he continues to check all the boxes.
