In the closing moments of the Sacramento Kings bad loss to the Washington Wizards Friday night, things seemingly took an aggressive turn in a very bad way. As the final minutes played out, all-star big man and current best player on the Kings roster, Domantas Sabonis, appeared to injure his right hand.

He immediately left the court and went straight to the locker room with a member of the training staff. Now, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN provided this update on the Sabonis situation.

It’s a tough update to look much into, for obvious reasons. There is still a lot unknown about the situation but the one thing we now do know is that Sabonis did indeed injure his hand and there could be more to this situation in the coming days.

While everyone will continue to hope for the best, hopefully, a more in-depth update comes out sooner rather than later. Sabonis was on an absolute tear so far this season and he is the one player on the Kings roster that the team can’t afford to miss for a significant amount of time.

Speculating is never a good idea. That being said, the news is not bad news, which can be looked at in a hopeful way. Any updates or developments will be shared as they come out.
