ESPN Sources: Suns star Devin Booker – out for five weeks with a groin strain – could return as soon as Tuesday vs. Brooklyn: https://t.co/Zv71eRjHsu

Booker has been out since Christmas day with a left groin strain. So far this season, the Suns are 9-14 when Booker does not play. The Suns have been battling injuries all season long; the last time their starting five played together was in early November.
Booker is averaging 27.1 points per game while shooting 47% from the field and 37% from beyond the arc. He is also grabbing 4.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game so far this season. It will be nice when Booker returns for the Suns; they could still be a dangerous team if everybody is healthy.
