Suns’ Stars Listed as Doubtful for Tomorrow’s Game vs. Lakers

The Phoenix Suns are likely to be without two of their Big 3 tomorrow night against the Lakers.

Both Devin Booker (left foot soreness) and Bradley Beal (lower back soreness) are listed as doubtful for tomorrow’s game.

Booker played through injury during yesterday’s win against the Warriors, but before the game he said he had a jammed left big toe, nothing about his foot. It didn’t seem to affect him at all, as he finished with 32 points, eight assists and six rebounds in the Suns’ 108-104 victory over the Warriors. Hopefully, this isn’t a different injury that’s more serious.

Booker jammed his toe last week and was limited in practice Sunday. He was first listed as questionable before being upgraded to probable and eventually playing. After the game, he said it was his first time getting a full run in up and down the court in about a week because of his toe.

Beal did not play last night against the Warriors due to his injury. Beal has been dealing with lower back tightness and also missed Thursday’s preseason finale due to it. He was limited in Sunday’s practice, but did practice Monday and participated in yesterday’s shootaround. He first missed the team’s third preseason game in Portland due to the back issue.

Damion Lee is the only other Suns’ players on the injury report. He will still be out after having right meniscus surgery earlier this month.

For the Lakers, Jarred Vanderbilt (left heel bursitis) and Jalen Hood-Schifino (right patella contusion) are listed as out. Cam Reddish (right foot soreness) is probable.

We will see if any positive news comes out of this, but as of now it doesn’t look like the Suns’ two stars will play tomorrow. After this game, the Suns’ next matchup is their home opener on Saturday night against the Utah Jazz.
