PHOENIX — Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker will miss this weekend's NBA All-Star game due to an injury, the NBA announced Friday night.

Booker, who himself replaced injured Lakers center Anthony Davis, is being held out due to a left knee sprain that doesn’t appear to be serious.

The 24-year-old shooting guard briefly left Thursday’s game against the Golden State Warriors and finished the team's 120-98 victory with a wrapped knee. 

He’s now considered day-to-day and will be re-evaluated after the All-Star break.

Booker had been averaging 24.9 points, 4.4 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game while leading the squad to a 24-11 record that’s good for second place in the Western Conference.
