UPDATE: Booker will be listed as questionable to play Saturday, per beat reporter Gina Mizell.
Devin Booker (forearm contusion) did not practice today in Mexico City and will be listed as questionable on the official injury report. He has a wrap on his hand/wrist, complete with a cord sticking out that appears to be connected to some sort of treatment under the wrap #Suns— Gina Mizell (@ginamizell) December 13, 2019
Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker has been dealing with a wrist injury and was held out of practice Friday, coach Monty Williams confirmed to reporters.

Booker said he has been dealing with a bruised wrist recently and that it’s been affecting his shot.

Devin Booker said his right hand/wrist is OK after shooting 6-of-17 from the field for 15 points and 10 assists in #Suns loss Wednesday to #GrindCity

As a result, Booker had an off shooting night Wednesday vs. the Grizzlies, but was able to produce with 10 assists. That’s great, but Booker’s value in fantasy basketball is tied to his ability to fill it up.
Fantasy Basketball Analysis: Phoenix Suns PG/SG Devin Booker
If Booker were to be ruled out Saturday, I think it’s a smash spot for Ricky Rubio. The Spurs are a poor defensive team and play at a decent pace, so there should be plenty of points to go around. I’d also expect Cam Johnson and Mikal Bridges to fill in for Booker at shooting guard, so one of them will start. Both would be viable value plays in DFS. I’d also look into picking up Bridges in season-long, he’s been solid lately and his defense is getting him more minutes and trust from Williams.
