More on Devin Booker Injury

Gina Mizell: Late scratch: Devin Booker is also OUT tonight vs. Orlando with a left toe injury. T.J. Warren is also out with ankle soreness. #Suns
Gina Mizell: #Suns coach Igor Kokoskov said after practice that Devin Booker (hamstring) is doubtful to play tomorrow vs. San Antonio and that Isaiah Canaan (ankle) is questionable.
Duane Rankin: #Suns official game notes: Devin Booker listed OUT for Memphis game and is "day-to-day" after suffering hamstring injury Wednesday night against Los Angeles #Lakers. Earlier today, Igor Kokoskov said it was a "game-time decision." Booker said he'd see how it felt tomorrow.
Devin Booker: 👀
Devin Booker has taken another giant step in recovering from an injured right shooting hand. The Phoenix Suns’ franchise player has been cleared for contact and has been practicing 5-on-5 with the team. “He looked good,” Suns coach Igor Kokoskov said after Saturday’s practice. “As we all know, on any level that you play, when you’re recovering from something, an injury, there’s some kind of hesitation when it comes to the contact, but I don’t see that in Book."
Gina Mizell: Devin Booker is running with the first team during a full-contact portion of today’s #Suns practice. He’s still got his fingers wrapped. James Jones said earlier today that he is “hopeful” Booker can play in Wednesday’s opener.
Duane Rankin: Looking at Devin Booker, he's not wearing wraps on his injured right hand. Maybe that's just because he's not shooting or in a practice, but that can be see as another sign of progress. #Suns
“As you guys know he did have the injury late last year,” McDonough said, referring to a lingering issue for Booker during the end of the 2017-18 season for which he missed the final 12 games. “There were no symptoms over the summer. The hand died down, it calmed down a little bit, it looked good, there was nothing structurally wrong with it.”
The GM went on to explain that in recent weeks, the Suns have had members of their NBA roster in the gym for workouts and pickup games. That’s when the swelling happened. “Just in one of those games, the hand swelled up,” he said. “There was no trauma that we could see — it wasn’t like he hit it or jammed it or anything stood out unusually while he was playing. The hand just swelled up.”

Harrison Wind: Suns say Devin Booker will be out approximately six weeks after surgery to repair an injury to the fifth metacarpophalangeal joint in his right hand. If that timetable holds up, he’ll barely miss the Nuggets’ home opener vs Phoenix on Oct. 20.
Gambadoro reports Booker will miss at least four weeks. The bothersome right hand injury lingered for Booker throughout the end of the 2017-18 season after he jammed it in practice on March 14, a day before the team’s game against the Utah Jazz. Booker went on to play and shot 3-of-18. From that point on, Booker was required to wear a splint until his condition improved and he missed the last 12 games of the season.
Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker will undergo hand surgery on Monday and is out indefinitely, reports 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s John Gambadoro. Booker will have the surgery in Los Angeles and is likely to miss the start of training camp.
Scott Bordow: Sounds like Devin Booker, TJ Warren, Elfrid Payton, Len all out. Triano expects same lineup as he had against Golden State

Scott Bordow: Update from Suns: Team still hasn't heard from NBA regarding possible suspensions tonight. Booker said he doesn't know if he'll be able to play. Golden State without Durant, Curry, Thompson, McCaw and Cassipi
Chuck Cooperstein: Per Triano: @Devin Booker will play vs Mavs. 9:30 tip @1033fmESPN. Best offensive player in NBA no one talks about.
Scott Bordow: Triano to me: "Tell your daily fantasy players they probably shouldn't play Booker" tonight. So there you go. Good chance, though, that Booker returns on the 26th, assuming he comes out of tomorrow's practice without any issues
Scott Bordow: Triano said "it makes sense" for the Suns to be cautious with Booker. Lot will depend on how he responds to Sunday's practice.
Michael Gallagher: Suns general manager Ryan McDonough said Devin Booker has been doing work on the Versa-Climber, but hasn't really done any on-court work yet. Hopeful to get on-court work next week & return to games around Christmas.
Scott Bordow: Just got off phone with Ryan McDonough. He said Suns hoping to get Booker back before Dec. 29 game against Sacramento. Could be Dec. 26 against Memphis. But McDonough said Booker will have to practice first, see how his body responds before playing
Booker thought it was a cramp at first, but when he tried to move, he could not. "People said I was doing the 'Mannequin Challenge,'" Booker said. "I don't ever want to be carried off the court. Anything in my power, if I could have walked off I would have walked off. We had to resume the game, so my big fellas helped me out."
Gerald Bourguet: Also, for those who were curious, Devin Booker walked into the presser. Slowly, but he's walking. No crutches or wheelchair. Also says no Paul Pierce jokes from teammates yet. #SunsVsWizards

Griffin’s hiring was supposed to mark a new chapter in the history of professional basketball in New Orleans. But 2½ years into his time in charge, he is running out of chances to make things right. He has failed to form a solid relationship with his most important player, and he has already fired two head coaches, one of whom he hand-picked. How did so much go wrong so quickly? What follows is an account of Griffin’s tenure in New Orleans, based on conversations with more than a dozen current and former team employees.
Throughout his rookie season, Williamson had grown increasingly frustrated with the Pelicans for the number of hoops they required him to jump through to return from the knee injury he suffered in the preseason. The team initially provided a return-to-play timetable of six to eight weeks, but it took more than three months for Williamson to get back on the floor. When he was finally given the thumbs up to play, he was placed on “burst” limits, which he detested. The way Williamson’s return was handled caused significant tension between him and the team’s medical staff, sources said.

Several prominent voices in the NBA agent community said they have had positive interactions with Griffin over the years, including Mark Bartelstein, the founder of Priority Sports and Entertainment. “I’ve worked with David in his days in Phoenix, his days in Cleveland and now New Orleans,” Bartelstein said. “I’ve engaged in all kinds of transactions and scenarios on a wide variety of subjects. I’ve had nothing but good experiences. That doesn’t mean we always agree on everything. That’s all part of the business.
