Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker will play on Monday against the Dallas Mavericks, according to head coach Monty Williams pregame.

Booker was upgraded to questionable on the injury report after missing four straight games due to a left hamstring strain. He injured it in overtime of the Suns’ loss to the Denver Nuggets on Jan. 22.

The Suns put up a record of 2-2 without Booker, recently beating the Mavericks on Saturday.

Cam Payne (right foot sprain) remains out, along with Dario Saric who is continuing to work his way back after coming off the health and safety protocols list.

Booker is averaging a team-high 22.9 points per game this year.

Monday’s game has a tip-off time of 6:30 p.m. and can be heard on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
