The Phoenix Suns and New Orleans Pelicans will play at least five games in their first-round series, and the NBA announced the start time for the fifth meeting on Wednesday.

Game 5 is set for Tuesday at 7 p.m. from Footprint Center.

The Suns handled Game 1 with a 110-99 victory, but disaster struck in Game 2. All-Star guard Devin Booker exited in the third quarter with a right hamstring strain and the Pelicans evened the series in Phoenix.

The Suns announced there is no timetable for Booker’s return, although ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported it is unlikely he will play in Games 3 or 4 in New Orleans.

He also tweeted, though, that Booker is not ruled out for the series.

Booker made the trip East, as he is included in a Suns social media video of players boarding the plane.

Game 3 is set for Friday at 6:30 p.m. and Game 4 is Sunday at the same time.

You can catch both games on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
