Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker departed Tuesday night’s playoff game against the New Orleans Pelicans with right hamstring toughness and will not return.
Booker exited with 4:35 left in the third quarter and headed back to the locker room to be examined. Suns coach Monty Williams told TNT after the third quarter they would find out the severity of the injury after the game.
Booker scored 31 points — all in the first half — before exiting. He made 12 of 19 field-goal attempts and 7 of 11 from 3-point range.
Booker scored 25 points in Game 1 when the Suns opened the Western Conference first-round series with a 110-99 win on Sunday night.
