UPDATE: Devin Booker reportedly will play on Tuesday night against the Warriors.


Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker is “50-50” to play in the team’s season opener against the Golden State Warriors due to a toe injury.

If Booker misses this game, it’ll put the Suns in a tough spot since they are also down another key player.

Guard Bradley Beal (back) is unlikely to play in the team’s season opener on Tuesday night.

The Suns are underdogs against the Warriors as a result, and they may have a tough time generating offense potentially without these two stars

Devin Booker injury status for opening night vs. Golden State Warriors

Booker is officially listed as questionable for the team’s game on Tuesday night.

Best Phoenix Suns prop bet with Devin Booker questionable for opening night

Kevin Durant OVER 29.5 Points

I already wrote up for BetSided in this game that Durant is a great bet to go OVER his point total, but with Beal and Booker being ruled out, that line has risen from 25.5 to 29.5.

Still, someone has to score for the Suns, and Durant averaged 29.1 points per game last season.

With Draymond Green out for the Warriors, the team’s defense is going to struggle. The Warriors had a defensive rating of 114.8 with Green and 118.4 without him last season. If Booker gets ruled out, KD is a great target in the prop market.

Devin Booker injury history

In recent seasons, Booker has dealt with some soft tissue injuries.

He missed a huge stretch of Dec. to Feb. last season with a groin injury and prior to that, he missed multiple games last season with a hamstring injury.

In the playoffs in the 2021-22 season, Booker missed part of the team’s series against the New Orleans Pelicans with a hamstring injury.

He also dealt with hamstring and back injuries that sidelined him for games in the 2018-19 season.

Despite that, Booker has played in 64 or more games in all but two of his NBA seasons.
