What They Are Saying:
Triano on Devin Booker’s status: “Book looked good. He looked good in practice. I’d say he’s probable. He will start if he is playing… It’s great to have him back. He’s a big part of this team and a big part of this franchise moving forward. He’s just going to have to ease his way back into it and it starts tonight.”
Booker: “I’m feeling good. I’m back here out on the court. That’s all I can ask for. That’s what I’ve been waiting on for three weeks. Sitting on the side watching, just makes you want to be in there that much more. So I’m really excited about today.”
Triano on Davon Reed: “Davon is getting close, but he’s still going to need a couple games to get experience. He missed all of preseason and training camp. So this is his training camp and he’ll have a little bit of a preseason as well.”
