Sixers vs. Suns preview Embiid Simmons look to bounce back against league's worst defense

Hopefully it's just an abundance of caution. but Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker was spotted in a wheelchair - and clutching crutches - after suffering a groin injury Tuesday night.

Suns interim head coach Jay Triano kept things in perspective when asked about Bookers injury after the game, per ESPN. With 2:40 left in the fourth quarter, Booker was defending against Raptor guard Fred VanVleet. With Booker out until further notice, the Suns will have to attempt to find a way to compete.

He is averaging 24.3 points, 4.1 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game this season, which would all be career-high totals.

The once-promising Suns backcourt is already without Eric Bledsoe after he was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in November and will have to make do without Booker for some time.

Phoenix could turn to rookie Josh Jackson or Troy Daniels to start in Booker's absence. "I think Josh has played pretty well lately, especially on the defensive end of the floor". But if the pieces do fit the puzzle here, then it means bad news for the Suns, and to all of basketball in general. Booker also is tied with LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo with the most 30-point games this season with ten.
