Devin Booker of Phoenix Suns to undergo hand surgery

Devin Booker of Phoenix Suns to undergo hand surgery

Phoenix Suns' star Devin Booker will reportedly undergo surgery on an injured ligament in his hand today, according to a report by Arizona Sports 98.7's John Gambadoro on Sunday.

The New Zealand Breakers look set to be denied the chance to test themselves against one of the NBA's best shooters in their October 3 pre-season matchup against the Phoenix Suns.

This morning, it was reported that Booker would miss at least four weeks, effectively keeping him off the court for the entirely of the Suns training camp.

The Phoenix Suns are hoping to climb out of the league's cellar and begin on the road to becoming a contender this season.

The Suns previous year defeated the Brisbane Bullets 114-93 during their pre-season schedule.

Booker missed 28 games in total past year. It is hard to replace his production in the lineup.

The spitfire had a strong 2017-18, averaging 24.9 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.7 assists.

Booker signed a 5-year, $158-million contract extension in July. He became the fourth-youngest player in National Basketball Association history to score 3,000 points, behind LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony.

With no timetable for his return, it's not clear yet whether Booker will play any pre-season games, though there will be no chances taken with a player of his importance.

Will Devin Booker be ready for the regular season?
