Suns' Booker to undergo hand surgery

It was also reported that Booker will have surgery in Los Angeles and is likely to miss the start of training camp.

Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker will reportedly undergo hand surgery Monday and is expected to miss the beginning of training camp, according to 98.7 FM Arizona Sports' John Gambadoro.

Booker was being bothered by his hand in the final weeks of last season which is why he opted to sit out the final 12 games.

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

Booker missed 28 games in total a year ago. Booker has showed the ability to score in bunches over the course of his young career, and with more pieces in place this season the Suns wanted to see him take another step forward as a player.
