John Gambadoro of 98.7 Arizona Sports Station in Phoenix reports Booker will have surgery on his right hand in Los Angeles and is expected to miss the start of camp.

The Phoenix Suns are hoping to climb out of the league's cellar and begin on the road to becoming a contender this season.

Devin Booker is reportedly set to undergo hand surgery that will limit his involvement in the Suns' pre-season. Booker was in the midst of a strong season prior to the injury.

Booker, 21, signed a five-year, $158-million contract extension earlier this summer. He averaged 24.9 points and 4.7 assists per game with the Suns.

Trump, meanwhile, has denounced the Times opinion piece as "gutless" and its publication as a "disgrace" bordering on treason.

The Suns game will be the Breakers' final pre-season hitout ahead of their October 11 regular season opener against the Brisbane Bullets in Auckland.

Booker, who signed a five-year maximum extension during the offseason, is coming off his third National Basketball Association season in which he averaged 24.9 points, 4.7 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game.

The Suns open the regular season on October 17 against the Dallas Mavericks at Talking Stick Resort Arena. The Suns went 3-7 in a three week stretch without Booker in December of previous year while going 2-10 the down the final stretch.

He is an integral part of the Suns' youth movement alongside 2018 first overall pick Deandre Ayton, no. 10 pick Mikal Bridges and 2017 no. 4 overall pick Josh Jackson.
