De’Aaron Fox returns to practice, misses game against Grizzlies


De’Aaron Fox was ruled out for two weeks, but returned to practice on Dec. 30, but failed to play in Sunday’s game.  Continue reading for more information.

De’Aaron Fox was ruled out for two weeks with a partial quad tear on Dec. 22, but he looks to be making a speedy recovery.  Below is a Tweet from Sean Cunningham from Dec. 30.

What the news means

There was some subsequent debate about Fox being at top speed, but still returning to practice in just over a week is a good sign for the Kings rookie.  He was held out of Sunday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies, though.  Word is Sacramento is going to monitor how the injury responds over the next few days.  The Kings next play on Tuesday and then have off until Saturday.  I would guess we see Fox return in one of those two games, but stay tuned for further updates as they become available.

Final thoughts

De’Aaron Fox returned to practice on Dec. 30 but did not play in the New Year’s Eve clash against Memphis.  The starting point guard appears close to returning to game action and not a moment too soon for Kings fans.  The youngster needs as much game action as possible to continue his development and growth.  Hopefully, he returns in the coming week and has a stellar 2018.  Stay tuned.
