But according to the latest update by the Suns, Booker’s status for the next game against the Minnesota Timberwolves is officially probable.

The Phoenix Suns are 4-6 to start the season and currently sitting in the 9th spot in the Western Conference standings. They need Booker to return to the court and play like a superstar.

The return of Devin Booker will make the Suns a completely new team, as his presence will change the opponents’ scouting report.

The Phoenix Suns are on a 2-game losing streak. They lost their last two games against the Los Angeles Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Kevin Durant and Co. need a win against the Minnesota Timberwolves tomorrow to boost their confidence and get back in rhythm. Kevin Durant has played great this season, averaging MVP numbers. But that has not translated to wins for the Suns.

Bradley Beal is also trying to settle into his new role with the Suns, and he has not performed at his maximum potential so far. He is currently averaging only 17.3 points, which is his lowest scoring average since the 2015-16 season. Meanwhile, Anthony Edwards has elevated his game to the next level and helped the Timberwolves grab the 3rd spot in the Western Conference. It will be tough for Phoenix to topple Anthony Edwards and Co. without Devin Booker in their line-up. So, his status tomorrow is extremely crucial for the Phoenix Suns’ success.
