Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker limped to the locker room in the second quarter Sunday vs. the Lakers with a left hamstring injury.

Our models project Booker for 41.8 FanDuel points at the cost of $8,200.

Pacific division leaders the Los Angeles Clippers lost late, with a Dorian Finney-Smith tip shot putting the Dallas Mavericks ahead with 34.3 seconds left.

Booker is obviously a huge piece of the puzzle for the Suns, as he leads the team with 24.5 points and 7.0 assists per game this season.

Booker has faced a handful of injuries this season, including a toe injury that forced him to miss Friday's game against the Orlando Magic.

The Lakers are 14-9 and fifth in the Western Conference.

Anthony Davis hit 36 points and 19 rebounds as the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Charlotte Hornets 119-109, while the Philadelphia 76ers continued their strong home form with a 103-95 win over the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Lakers went 3-5 in October, but found their groove while going 10-4 in November.

"That's the challenge of things I've been kind of battling with since the season started", James said. "Now we have to continue to get good at, better at, those other times where we're just playing basketball".

In recent games, he seems to have answered.

The four-time NBA Most Valuable Player's attacking abilities were on full display as he carried the Lakers to a 104-96 victory the Indiana Pacers on Thursday (Nov 29), when he scored 12 of his 38 points in the final five minutes.
