Sacramento will hope to avoid a seventh-straight loss when they face the Knicks at MSG

The Sacramento Kings will hope to have De’Aaron Fox back in the lineup on Monday afternoon when they face the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

Not only will the Kings hope to have their starting point guard back in action–they will also hope to avoid a seven-game losing streak when action tips off at 4:30pm PST.

Here’s the latest injury report for tonight’s game:

Sacramento Kings

  • De’Aaron Fox – QUESTIONABLE (Left ankle soreness): Fox missed his fourth-straight game on Saturday evening. Prior to Saturday’s game, head coach Alvin Gentry told the media that he isn’t sure how long Fox will be sidelined, but also reiterated that the guard is only experiencing soreness in his left ankle. Fox has not played in a game since January 19th.

Gentry on Saturday regarding Fox’s injury:

“Don’t know how long he’ll be out. It is a sore ankle. That’s been it. He dresses, he tries it and then he’s really the only one that knows the pain threshold of where it is or anything. All it is is an ankle right now, there’s not anything else going on.”

It’s currently unknown how severe Bagely’s injury is, but more information is expected to come on the young forward when Alvin Gentry speaks to the media at 3:00pm PST.
  • Terence Davis suffered an injury to his right wrist (ECU tendon) will be out indefinitely. Davis also received received five stitches to repair a laceration above his right eye after being injured during a drive to a basket during last Tuesday’s game in Boston.

New York Knicks
