Devin Booker Carried Off Court
Booker went down near the end of Tuesday's game versus the Raptors and had to be carried off the court with a strained left adductor. The Suns provided an update on Booker during the game that said he would be evaluated.

When Booker left the game he had 19 points, five rebounds, and eight assists. Obviously, since he had to be carried off the court that isn't a good sign, especially since adductor injuries can be tricky.
Jusuf Nurkic Sprained Ankle
Nurkic sprained his right ankle in the Trail Blazer's loss to the Wizards on Tuesday. He was able to walk out on his own power and Trail Blazers beat writer Joe Freeman provided an update on Nurkic's x-rays.

It's possible that this is a high ankle sprain since he reached high on his ankle when he initially injured it. Expect him to miss time for now until we get a concrete update later today.
Bradley Beal Broke Out
Since John Wall has been off the court, Beal had been struggling as well as the rest of the team. The Wizards and Beal snapped their Wall-less woes on Tuesday with a 106-92 win over the Trail Blazers. Beal hit 21-of-37 shots and five 3-pointers for a career-high 51 points. After the game, Beal credited his teammates saying “I definitely couldn’t have did it without my guys.”
The Wizards and Beal will look to make it back-to-back victories on Thursday against the Phoenix Suns.Back to the NBA Newsfeed
