Sources said that the Suns are still awaiting results from an MRI on Wednesday in order to have a better understanding of the injury and a timeline for a return.

Booker was a great player in Game 2 on Tuesday night, scoring 31 points and making seven 3-pointers.

After Booker fell, the Pelicans produced a stunning finish to win 125-114 and even their first-round series at 1-1.

Booker has had hamstring problems for the past two years. Booker injured his left leg in November while playing a similar play to Tuesday's. This led to him missing seven games. He suffered a hamstring injury during Game 3 of the NBA Finals last year, but he played through it and kept the matter a secret. He also suffered a left hamstring injury during the regular season 2020-21 and missed four games.

The Suns finished this season at 8-6 when Booker was not with them.
