Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker exited Tuesday night’s 104-96 win over the Golden State Warriors due to a left hamstring injury.
The All-Star guard did return to the bench in warmup gear but did not participate in the remainder of the contest.
Suns head coach Monty Williams did not have an update on Booker’s injury status postgame.
The Phoenix guard picked up the injury on a layup attempt midway through the second quarter.
Booker stayed on the court for a few more possessions but was seen limping, grimacing and grabbing at his left hamstring.
He was the Suns’ leading scorer with 10 points on 4-for-9 shooting (44.4%) before departing the game in the first half.
Booker finished the night with one assist, two rebounds and a perfect 2-for-2 at the free throw line.
Center Deandre Ayton finished the first half as Phoenix’s leading scorer with 11 points on 5-of-8 shooting (62.5%).
Ayton also had a team-high six boards in addition to one assist and one block.
