Earlier today, news broke out that Phoenix Suns star player Devin Booker was suddenly set to undergo surgery on his hand, subsequently missing the beginning of training camp.

While the reason for his injury remains a mystery, Booker’s Instagram story may have given us all a valuable hint as to its cause.

In a weird twist of events, the Suns' 3-point specialist is seen riding a bicycle – or something that looks like a unicycle – a couple of hours before word got out to the public on his procedure.

You can watch the footage below, as posted by Twitter user, Christian Hanish.


Of course, we could all just be reading too much into these incidents and drawing up different scenarios in our heads as we wait for the NBA season to begin. Still, no matter how unlikely, the coincidence of both these events happening right after the other is something straight out of a movie.

Hopefully, we learn more about this when the Suns release an official statement in the coming days.

Booker, who just signed a five-year $158-million contract extension this summer to remain in Arizona, is arguably the team’s most prized asset. You can bet that they take it easy on him and ensure that he’s 100 percent healthy before clearing him to begin any physical activity.

At this point, we can only hope he comes back strong and is ready to lead the Suns to a bounce-back season. So instead of playing around on a bike, he’ll be able to ball out on the hardwood.
