told the Washington Post that he has had two platelet rich plasma treatments on his injured left foot that cost him the final 15 games of last season.

While in Las Vegas for NBA summer league, Booker revealed that he decided to have a PRP – a non-surgical therapy that encourages a more rapid, natural, healing process – at the urging of famed orthopedic surgeon Martin O’Malley in New York.
