PHOENIX (AP) Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker won't play in the NBA All-Star Game this weekend because of a mild sprain in his left knee, opening up space for Utah's Mike Conley to make his first All-Star appearance.
The Suns announced Booker's injury on Friday. Conley will be making his first appearance in the NBA showcase in his 13th season.
Conley seemed surprised by the announcement that came about 48 hours before Sunday's game. The point guard posted "Lol What just happened" in response to a congratulatory message from teammate Donovan Mitchell.
