Suns' Devin Booker sits out with strained right calf

Devin Booker, an All-Star guard, was out for Sunday's 120-106 victory against the Detroit Pistons because of a strained right calf.

Booker missed four of the Phoenix Suns' first six games because of injuries to his left foot and ankle.

Following a three-game layoff, Booker returned to the court on Thursday and finished with 31 points, 13 assists, and 9 rebounds. Despite this, he had pain after the game.

Despite not playing in the team's Saturday defeat to the Philadelphia 76ers, he was listed as having a left ankle sprain on the official injury report.

Due to injuries to Booker and Bradley Beal, the Suns have a 3–4 start. Spasms in his lower back have kept Beal from playing for the Phoenix Suns. 

Beal, a guard with a maximum salary, was added to the Suns in a summer deal to provide Booker, Kevin Durant, and him a formidable trio.

Beal worked out vigorously for thirty minutes before the game on Sunday, but head coach Frank Vogel stated there was no update on when the guard would be cleared to play.

Although Beal went through a strenuous pregame exercise that lasted for thirty minutes on Sunday, head coach Frank Vogel stated that there was no new information regarding the guard's expected timetable for returning to the game.
