Devin Booker re-aggravated the left hamstring he initially strained against the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this season in Sunday’s 120-96 loss at Staples Center. The team’s leading scorer and assist man scored just six points on 3-of-8 shooting as he went down late in the first half. “I’m not sure how extreme it is right now, but of course, everybody knows we need him, desperately,” Suns wing Josh Jackson said. “The sooner we can get him back, the better, but hopefully, we can get him back 100 percent.”
A frustrated Booker noticeably limped to the team bus after the game and politely declined to comment about the injury. Suns first-year coach Kokoskov said he isn’t opposed to shutting down Booker, who has had multiple injuries already this season. “I’m very open (to the idea), but that’s not my jurisdiction when it comes to the medical staff,” Kokoskov said. “We have a great medical staff. They’re going to tell me as an organization what we should do.”
