Booker told Duane Rankin of the Arizona Republic that he is playing tonight and said he jammed his left big toe during practice last week. Booker was limited in practice Sunday and missed the preseason finale against the Lakers last Thursday due to rest.

This morning, it was reported by The Athletic’s Shams Charania that Bradley Beal is “unlikely” to play tonight. Beal has been dealing with lower back tightness and missed the preseason finale due to it. He was also limited in Sunday’s practice, but did practice yesterday. Beal first missed the team’s third preseason game in Portland due to the back issue.

Beal was seen getting shots up at this morning’s shootaround.

As of now, Booker is listed as probable, while Beal is listed as questionable. Heading into today, both were listed as questionable.

Coach Frank Vogel explained his decision making when it comes to injuries on Sunday. 

“(I) make all decisions on all injuries on a case-by-case basis,” Vogel said. “I’m a pro-play guy if guys are healthy, but if guys are dinged up, and we have to manage certain injuries, you manage them case by case.”

The Suns and Warriors tip off from Chase Center at  7 p.m. MST tonight on TNT. Stay tuned for updates on these injuries.
