Devin Booker (left hamstring strain) has been ruled out Sat. vs the Mavs. Book will miss another game for the Suns as he deals with a hamstring injury that he suffered last week. He almost returned Thursday but is perhaps still feeling slight pain and the team probably wants to play it safe. Cameron Johnson and Jae Crowder remain the best streaming options with Booker out.

Luka Doncic had 25 points (8-of-17 FGs, 7-of-10 FTs), seven assists, six rebounds and a pair of 3-pointers in a dispiriting blowout loss to the Jazz on Friday. Rick Carlisle criticized his team's effort after Wednesday's loss, but if anything they were even worse tonight -- they were outscored by 25 points in the first quarter and it was all garbage time after that. "There’s really not much to say," Doncic lamented after Friday's loss. "I never felt like this. We’ve got to do something, because this is not looking good." Fantasy owners shouldn't mind too much because whether Luka racks them up in wins or losses, stats are stats.
