This article shows the most recent news about De’Aaron Fox’s injury that he suffered last night against the Orlando Magic.
Despite the Sacramento Kings snapping their losing streak yesterday against the Orlando Magic, the night was bittersweet overall. During the second quarter of yesterday’s contest, Kings’ rookie guard De’Aaron Fox left the game early due to tightness in his abdominal muscle.
With Frank Mason III already on the injury list and George Hill sitting out due to rest, it left the Kings without a pure point guard for the rest of the game.
Today, Fox underwent an MRI to see if his abdominal injury was anything serious. Fortunately, the results were negative and the Kentucky speedster is now listed as day-to-day with the team, according to NBC Sports Bay Area’s James Ham.
With Fox’s status up in the air for tomorrow’s game against the Miami Heat, it leaves the point guard position very thin for the Kings. As I mentioned above, with Mason III already nursing a heel injury, it only leaves George Hill as the lone healthy facilitator on Sacramento’s roster.
If Fox is unable to play tomorrow’s contest, other options for point guard can be Bogdan Bogdanovic and Garrett Temple, in my opinion.
When Fox went down yesterday, both Bogdanovic and Temple stepped up and helped fill the point guard void that suddenly developed for Sacramento in the game. In my mind, both did a solid job running the point but obviously are not considered true point guards.
Hopefully, Fox is healthy enough to play tomorrow. But in case he is not, expect George Hill to be a must dress tomorrow against the Heat. That is if he is not traded by then…
