Phoenix Suns guard Josh Okogie has been limited in training camp due to a left hamstring strain and will be reevaluated in two weeks, per the team.

A two-week timeframe would mean Okogie is set to miss all of the Suns’ preseason schedule. The season opener is on Oct. 19.

Okogie was a free agent signing in July after spending his first four seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves. He was selected 20th overall in the 2018 NBA Draft and across those four years averaged 20.6 minutes, 6.4 points. 2.9 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.0 steals per game.

Head coach Monty Williams emphasized how a lack of reps can put new players behind but Okogie is getting tidbits on the side so he can stay in the loop still as much as possible.

At 6-foot-4 and 213 pounds, Okogie has built up a solid reputation in the NBA as a great point of attack defender.

With Jae Crowder not at training camp and Cam Johnson moving into the starting lineup, there are minutes available on the wing off the bench, which Okogie figures to have a shot at.
