Two-time All-Star shooting guard Devin Booker entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols, the Phoenix Suns announced Sunday.

Booker will miss the team’s pre-camp media day Monday and the start of training camp the following day.

Entering the league’s health and safety protocols means Booker likely either tested positive for COVID-19 or was a close contact of someone who did. It was not immediately clear whether Booker received a vaccine.

Booker, 24, averaged 25.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game in 67 starts for Phoenix in the 2020-21 season. He took a step forward in his first postseason appearance, posting averages of 27.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game in 22 starts as the Suns reached the NBA Finals.
