Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker is hurt. Did you know Devin Booker got hurt? Here’s the update from our Evan Sidery. You should click on it, because it includes the games that we are likely to be without the future of the franchise.

Thursday morning we learned what the lineup will look like in the first game since Booker went down Tuesday in Toronto. Josh Jackson will be inserted into the starting five.

Thursday’s start will Jackson’s fifth in his rookie season. He started the first three games of the 2017-18 season under head coach Earl Watson. He’s started just once in the Jay Triano era, November 26th against the Timberwolves. In the 119-108 road loss to Minnesota, Jackson scored 5 points on 2-10 shooting and pulled down 5 rebounds in 23 minutes.

In the Suns’ 122-116 win over Washington on November 1st, Jackson racked up 7 points and 5 fouls in 12 minutes.

If you’re making plans to watch a Devin Booker-less Suns squad tonight, what would you like to see from Jackson against the Wizards?
