Sacramento Kings guard De’Aaron Fox, who has missed nine games because of a left ankle sprain, will be evaluated again in two to three weeks, the team announced Monday.
Fox sustained the injury toward the end of practice on Nov. 11.
He will stay behind to rehab when the team begins a four-game road trip Wednesday in Portland, according to the team.
Fox, 21, was averaging a career-high 18.2 points to go along with seven assists per game in his first nine outings. The Kings’ 2017 first-round pick (No. 5 overall) out of Kentucky has averaged double-digit scoring since he entered the league, including a 17.3-point mark last season.
The Kings said forward Marvin Bagley III continues to make progress from a right thumb fracture suffered in the season-opener on Oct. 23. He will undergo his six-week evaluation at the end of this week.
