The Sacramento Kings’ two young and rising stars are getting closer to returning to the basketball court.

The Sacramento Kings have been challenged to begin their 2019-20 campaign, and the biggest obstacle so far has been adjusting to life without Marvin Bagley III and De’Aaron Fox. With this season possibly being breakout years for both players, they suffered injuries early which have sidelined them for a significant portion of the season.

Luckily, the Kings have been able to survive without their two stars, but they are not where they want to be in the standings. The good news, however, is that both players seem to be making strides in their recoveries as both are on the practice court working with their team.

Kings Need Their Two Stars Back

Even with Fox back on the practice court, he still has a while to go before returning to action. For the sake of Bagely, however, his time to come back is nearing soon.

For the Kings to achieve their goal of making the playoffs this season, they will need to have their core players healthy and performing at a high level. Even with only Bagley returning, it will give the Kings another offensive weapon in their frontcourt. He may be young, but Bagley is one of Sacramento’s best scorers and will provide instant offense when he returns.

For the case of Fox, when he comes back, he will add more assistance for the Kings on both ends of the court. His ability to facilitate the offense and hold off the opponents’ top guards will be essential if the Kings want to make a run for the postseason.

With the Kings coming into the season with a mentality of playoffs or bust, they need to have Bagley and Fox playing to achieve their goal. Hopefully, both can fully recover and remain healthy when they get the thumbs up to return to the basketball court. In the meantime, the Kings need to keep being competitive as they have an opportunity to remain in the hunt this December.
