Oklahoma City is currently experiencing its own wave of COVID-19 Health & Safety protocols

When the Sacramento Kings face the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night at Golden 1 Center, they will do so with a roster that is nearing full-strength.

Oklahoma City will be missing several players and its head coach in Mark Daigneault due to the NBA’s Health & Safety protocols as the Thunder will look to extend Sacramento’s losing-streak to four games.

Starters Josh Giddey and Darius Bazley will not play on Tuesday due to protocols, leaving the Thunder without its starting guard and power forward when they take the floor.

The Kings currently have three players that remain in protocols–Alex Len, Davion Mitchell and Neemias Queta.

Head coach Alvin Gentry said on Monday that each player is nearing a return, while adding that all three players–most notably Mitchell–are itching to get back on the floor and resume basketball activities.
