The Sacramento Kings announced Monday that PG De’Aaron Fox would be re-evaluated in another 2-3 weeks. Fox has been sidelined for most of the season due to a severe ankle sprain. The Kings also updated us on the status of PF Marvin Bagley, who has been out due to a right thumb fracture. Bagley is almost at the six-week mark and is set to be evaluated soon. He has a better chance of returning in the near future.

Fox was able to get shots up at practice last week, so that was at least encouraging for his progress. Though the timeline still has him maybe being able to return at the end of December. With Fox out, Cory Joseph and Yogi Ferrell have been soaking up all the backcourt minutes.

If Bagley is able to get back in the lineup, he’d cut into Richaun Holmes and Harrison Barnes’ minutes in the front court, though I’d still expect both to see a regular allotment of minutes.
