Windhorst: Phoenix's Devin Booker (hamstring) could miss 2-to-3 weeks

According to Brian Windhorst, Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker (hamstring) has reportedly been diagnosed with a Grade 1 hamstring strain.

What It Means:

Per ESPN, recovery timelines for Grade 1 hamstring strains "historically require approximately 14 to 21 days" to heal, which would leave Booker little room to return during the first round. Expect Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton to play lead offensive roles while Booker is inactive against a New Orleans' unit ranked 13th in defensive rating among current playoff teams.

Per Rotogrinders' Court IQ in 736.1 minutes this season with Booker off the floor, Paul is averaging 1.28 FanDuel points while Ayton's mark stands at 1.11 FanDuel points in a 437.7 minutes sample size.
