Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker will undergo hand surgery on Monday and is out indefinitely, reports 98.7 FM Arizona's Sports Station's John Gambadoro.

Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker will reportedly undergo surgery on his right hand, per John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM.

It's expected he'll miss the start of training camp which is set to begin towards the end of September. He sat out the last 12 games after dealing with hand pain over the back part of last season.

Booker signed a five-year, $158 extension earlier this summer.

Throughout the 2017-18 season Booker averaged 24.9 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.7 assists across 54 games.

The Suns now have little guard depth, specifically at point guard, where Booker is expected to play big minutes after Phoenix dealt Brandon Knight to the Houston Rockets in exchange for Ryan Anderson and De'Anthony Melton.

The Suns start a four-day training camp in Flagstaff on Sept. 25 and then will hold an open practice that Saturday, Sept. 29, in Phoenix.

The Suns game will be the Breakers' final pre-season hitout ahead of their October 11 regular season opener against the Brisbane Bullets in Auckland.
