The NBA asked the Phoenix Sun to checkout because they did not announce the violation of superstar Devin Booker in an “exact and timely manner”. As the league announced on Saturday, the Suns must therefore pay a penalty of $ 25,000.

Since the league introduced Draftkings and Fanduel as a betting partner in November 2021, the teams are even more important to follow the injury protocols. So placing bets should not be influenced by the lack of transparency in the status of the ready -to -use players.

Booker dragged on the right thigh in game 2 of the series against the New Orleans Pelicans, in which he was already 31 points. As a result, he missed the games 3 to 5 and returned 6 (13 points, 5/12 FG, 1/6 3FG in 32 minutes), with which the Suns successfully completed the series.

“I thought he looked good. He hadn’t played for over a week,” said head coach Monty Williams about the booker comeback. “When I asked him, he said to me: ‘I feel strong.’ On the film, however, he found places where he could have run faster in transition. He didn’t cheat, it was just more efficient. In the second half, he saw bigger efforts to just play. We needed that. “

In the victory in game 6, with which the Suns won a series against the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference Semifinals, the Pelicans were still ahead with 10 points before the sun was directed by the outstanding Chris Paul (33 points, 14/14 fg. 1/1 threesome, 4/4 ft, 8 assists), fought back.
