MEXICO CITY — Suns guard Devin Booker’s status is out for the Mexico City game against San Antonio (5 ET, NBA TV) due to a right forearm contusion, coach Monty Williams announced Saturday. The 23-year-old did not participate in Friday’s practice, but instead looked on while sporting a treatment wrap on the injury.
“He just has a sore forearm that got banged last week,” said Williams on Friday. “He has a contusion. He’s day-to-day.”
Booker is averaging 25.0 points and is currently the only NBA player shooting better than 50% overall, 40% from 3-point range and 90% from the free-throw line. He previously held the Mexico City single game scoring record with back-to-back 39-point games in 2017 until Luka Doncic bested those efforts with a 41-point triple-double on Thursday.
