Devin Booker is back in the mix — the NBA star made his first appearance at the Phoenix Suns training camp on Friday after his stint with COVID-19.
As we previously reported, the shooting guard revealed on a Twitch stream earlier this week he tested positive for the coronavirus and had been battling the virus for a week.
The ex-Kentucky baller was placed in the league’s health and safety protocols … causing him to miss the first 3 days of training camp with his teammates.
Booker confirmed he was vaccinated before catching COVID — he told reporters he was gradually getting his sense of smell and taste back … adding it was great to be back with his teammates.
The 24-year-old had a breakout year last season … averaging 25.6 points, 4.3 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game before leading Phoenix on an improbable run to the NBA Finals.
The Suns open up preseason play on October 4 against the Sacramento Kings … but it is unclear if DB can suit up that soon. Here’s hoping he’s ready to go.
Welcome back, D-Book!!
