Fox hasn’t undergone an MRI yet. 

Fox has appeared in 48 games this season. He’s averaging 26.8 points, 4.1 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.9 steals and 0.4 blocks while shooting 46.4% from the field, 37.6% from beyond the arc and 70.6% from the free-throw line. He has three double-doubles. 

The Kings are 31-23. They are in eighth place in the Western Conference standings. If the season ended today, Sacramento would be in the play-in tournament. 

Fox is making $32.6 million this season. He signed a five-year, $163 million extension with the Kings in November 2020.

The Kings made the playoffs last season for the first time since 2006. They won 48 games and were the third seed in the West. Fox and Co. lost to the Golden State Warriors in the first round of the 2023 playoffs in seven epic games. 

Sacramento opens the second half of the season against the San Antonio Spurs. The Kings should win that game since the Spurs have the worst record in the West. 

A one-time All-Star, Fox has career averages of 20.9 points, 3.7 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.4 blocks. He’s one of the best point guards in the NBA.
