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

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.”Sacramento Kings head coach Alvin Gentry on De’Aaron Fox’s ankle injury (January 29, 2022)
