BBNBA: Booker leaves game early with injury

On a really quiet night for the Cats in the NBA, Devin Booker was your leading scorer with 19 points on a rough shooting night. Booker did leave the game early with what the Suns say, “is a strained left adductor” He will be further evaluated when the team returns to Phoenix. An adductor strain seems very similar to what we might know as a groin strain.

Tyler Ulis had a rough night as well as the Raptors outscored the Suns by 23 while he was on the floor.

In more disappointing news, former Cat Skal Labissiere was demoted to the “G-League” yesterday. Skal had made 10 starts and had some flashes of brilliance this season. Here is to hoping it is a short stop in the G-League.
