During the second quarter of the game between the Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors, the Kings’ prized rookie Marvin Bagley III suffered an injury to his left knee.
Currently, the Sacramento Kings are facing off against the Golden State Warriors where so far it has been an outstanding offensive outing for both clubs. But the Kings will be without one of their offensive weapons for the rest of the game.
During the second quarter of the contest, the Kings’ prized rookie Marvin Bagley III went up for a rebound and landed awkwardly on the ground which resulted in an injury to his left knee, sending him to the locker room immediately.
As time went on, the report came out that Bagley suffered a sprained left knee and has officially been ruled out for the rest of the contest. It is expected that an upcoming MRI will happen for Bagley to be clear on what the injury actually is.
What Does This Mean?
Obviously, this a blow for the Kings. Not only has Bagley been one of their more efficient scorers off the bench, but tonight’s injury takes away valuable reps and minutes for the second overall pick. Tonight would have been a good test for Bagley to see how he pans out against the reigning NBA champions.
In only five minutes of action, Bagley finishes the game with four points and one rebound while shooting 2-2 from the floor. For the season, he is averaging 13 points and over six rebounds a game while making over 53% of his shots from the court.
