Booker isn’t sure when he’ll be able to return, so while he is anxious for the NBA lockout to end, he also understands that he might not be ready for training camp with the Wizards if a new agreement is reached soon.
“I kind of selfishly don’t want it to end yet, because of my leg,” Booker said in a recent telephone interview. “At the same time, I’m ready to get back to D.C. and get back to work.”
Booker was the first Wizard to seek employment abroad after the lockout began, signing in Israel with an NBA out in August. He arrived in September but only practiced with his team for a month before getting injured during a scrimmage when an opponent’s knee collided with Booker’s right thigh.
