Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker was carried off the floor in the fourth quarter of the team’s 126-113 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night after suffering a strained left adductor, the team announced.

Booker was coming back down the court when he pulled up and appeared to clutch at his groin area. Trainers came out to attend to him and he needed to be helped back to the locker room for evaluation.

Booker, who scored 46 points to lift the Suns past the 76ers on Monday night and once scored 70 points in a game, had 19 points and eight assists in 39 minutes.

Interim Suns coach Jay Triano said he’s unsure of the severity of Booker’s injury.

“I’ve seen guys get carried off and play the next day and guys not,” Triano said. “I’ll let the doctors figure out the severity of it. I’m sure they’ll have to do an MRI or something to see and make sure we take care of him the right way.”
