The Suns are once again near the bottom of the NBA standings at 9-17 and the youth movement is in full effect more than ever after the trade of Eric Bledsoe.
The one true bright spot that they possess looks to be a future NBA superstar, 21-year-old shooting guard Devin Booker.
Booker has been balling and scored 46 in the Suns upset victory in Philadelphia on Monday night, but after Tuesday night’s game in Toronto they may be without him for a little while.
Booker suffered a non-contact injury in the final minutes of the Suns 126-113 loss to the Raptors in Toronto:

Here is what the Suns tweeted about the situation after the game:
Injury Update: Devin Booker has a strained left adductor. He will be further evaluated when the team returns to Phoenix.

While it is really hard to measure the severity of this injury at this point, these sort of injuries are always tricky and difficult to fully recover from and could bother Booker for the remainder of the season if he keeps playing on it.
Things will get much more bleak for the Suns if they are without their star player for any length of time, here’s to hoping he returns soon.
