Devin Booker suffered the injury in the first half while trying to make a defensive play on a full-court pass. Once the play was over, Booker was noticeably limping before he was helped back to the locker room.

According to ClutchPoints' Lakers beat writer Ryan Ward, Booker is questionable to return to the game.

The 22-year-old star had six points and two assists in 17 minutes of action before exiting the contest.
Booker is obviously a huge piece of the puzzle for the Suns, as he leads the team with 24.5 points and 7.0 assists per game this season.
He has led Phoenix in scoring in 12 of its 22 games and recently tied a season-high with 37 points in the Suns' 118-107 loss to the Detroit Pistons last Sunday.
It's been a difficult start to the year for Booker and company, with the Suns currently sitting at 4-18 after losing seven of their last eight games.
Should Booker be out of action for an extended amount of time, it would undoubtedly make things even more difficult moving forward. The Suns will play three games this upcoming week with matchups against Sacramento, Portland, and Miami.
If Phoenix wants to turn things around, they will need Booker back in the lineup sooner rather than later.
