Suns' Devin Booker exits vs. Lakers with left hamstring injury

Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker will start and play without a minutes restriction against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.

James, who will turn 34 on December 30, signed with the Lakers in the offseason and is having one of the best seasons of his 16-year career, averaging 28.1 points, 7.8 rebounds and 6.6 assists through 22 games. He has averaged 24.5 points and seven assists in 18 appearances in 2018-19.

Our models project Booker for 41.8 FanDuel points at the cost of $8,200.

He was coming back to the team after missing Friday's loss to the Orlando Magic with a toe injury.


Booker also missed three games this season because of a similar injury.

The Lakers are 14-9 and fifth in the Western Conference.

The Lakers seem to have found an identity that traces back to the defensive end of the floor. "Now we have to continue to get good at, better at, those other times where we're just playing basketball".

Asked why he has been putting such an emphasis of defense, Kuzma said: "Just because I know that I can do it". People are going to be talking about us. The Suns still maintained a 10-point advantage entering the second quarter, but Los Angeles scored the first 10 points and tied the score at 31-31 on a 3-pointer by Ingram 2:15 into the period.
