Devin Booker Injury Update

Devin Booker exited Game 2 against the New Orleans Pelicans after just 24 minutes due to a hamstring injury. He missed the next three games before finally returning to the court for a series-clinching win in Game 6.

Booker did look a bit rusty, scoring 13 points on 5-of-13 from the field in 32 minutes of action. But he'll be coming off three days rest and should be at or near full strength in Game 1.
