Phoenix Suns star guard Devin Booker could return from a groin strain as soon as next Tuesday against the Brooklyn Nets, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

Booker has missed the past five weeks with the injury.

The Kentucky product is averaging 27.1 points per game this season, but has missed a total of 23 games because of groin and hamstring injuries.

The Suns (27-25) are seventh in the Western Conference after finishing atop the West last year with a 64-18 record.
