Trevor Booker's injury to sideline him for season, Flip Saunders says

UPDATE: Booker has a fractured foot, and will be in a walking boot and be reevaluated in six weeks.  Yikes.

Trevor Booker has been one of the bright spots in what has been a dismal season, but at this point, it looks like we've seen the last of him.  Flip Saunders said that Booker has a "crack" at the bottom of his right foot and will not play in the final nine games this year.

Flip Saunders said Trevor Booker is likely done for the season after MRI revealed a crack below his right foot.     

Booker ends the year averaging 5.3 points and 3.9 rebounds in 16.4 minutes per game, but his advanced numbers (15.3 PER, 58.2 TS%, 13.4 REB%) look very good.  I'm not really sure why he got only 1,063 minutes this season, but that's the way the cookie crumbles, I guess.  Overall, he played quite well for a rookie and just needed more time to show it.  Maybe there was more of an injury concern that we all knew about.
