Devin Booker injured his left hamstring in the second quarter versus the Los Angeles Lakers.

Booker missed Friday's game with a toe injury but will be healthy enough to play today against the Lakers.

The 22-year-old star had six points and two assists in 17 minutes of action before exiting the contest.

Our models project Booker for 41.8 FanDuel points at the cost of $8,200. A rematch against James and the Lakers (13-9) should inspire Booker to play through the pain, however. Booker had 23 points, seven assists and seven rebounds while James had 19 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds.

"This is all about making sure that they can say something on ESPN and everybody can just talk".

"He's continuing to get better and better, not just offensively but defensively".

Booker did not speak to reporters after the Suns' 120-96 loss in Los Angeles, according to the Athletic. "Sometimes I wonder, 'How did we lose?' If feels like everybody's competing, but I try to go back and look at some of the numbers, it's kind of confusing because I know everybody was playing hard".

The Suns opened up an early 17-point lead in the first quarter, but the Lakers rallied to make short work of the the side with the lowest record in the National Basketball Association at 4-19.
