Devin Booker to miss six weeks after hand surgery

Devin Booker is reportedly set to undergo hand surgery that will limit his involvement in the Suns pre-season

John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports was first to break the news.

Unfortunately for Booker and the Suns, a lingering hand injury will force the star guard to potentially miss the beginning of training camp.

The Phoenix Suns are hoping to climb out of the league's cellar and begin on the road to becoming a contender this season.

Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker underwent surgery on Monday morning to fix the fifth metacarpophalangeal joint in his right hand, and following the surgery, the team and doctors determined that Booker will miss approximately six weeks as he recovers from the operation.

Booker has averaged more than 22 points per game in each of the past 2 seasons for Phoenix.

Booker signed a five-year, $158 million contract extension with the Suns this offseason.

Booker has been surrounded with three lottery picks in the past two drafts, including this year's No. 1 overall pick, center Deandre Ayton, No. 10 pick Mikal Bridges and 2017 No. 4 overall pick Josh Jackson.
