Fox's game Wednesday between Sacramento and New Orleans has been postponed, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports. The NBA announced earlier in the evening the season would be suspended after a player tested positive for coronavirus, though the game in Sacramento was originally expected to be played as previously scheduled. Instead, the game won't be played since one of the scheduled officials reffed a game with the infected player earlier this week.
Fox went for 28 points (8-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 10-10 FT) to go with four rebounds and four assists across 31 minutes Sunday in the Kings' 118-113 loss to the Raptors. Fox looks to have fully recovered from the abdominal injury that forced him to miss a game in late February and had his status in question for several other contests. He's cleared 30 minutes in five of his last six outings, averaging 24.0 points and 5.8 assists over that stretch while hitting an even 50 percent of his attempts from the field and 90.7 percent of his free-throw attempts. Fox will benefit from some added rest with the Kings off the schedule until Wednesday against the Pelicans, but with Sacramento set to play only two games this week, there may be better lineup options for category leagues.
Fox produced 14 points (3-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 11 assists, five rebounds and two steals across 28 minutes in Saturday's 123-111 win over the Trail Blazers. Although Fox struggled with his shot in the victory, he was effective in getting the ball to all of his playmakers as they tied a single-game record for three-pointers in the contest. Fox is on an excellent five-game run, averaging 23.2 points, 6.2 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 1.6 steals over that span.
Fox managed 23 points (9-17 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 36 minutes during Thursday's 125-108 loss to the 76ers. Fox continues to battle his way through an abdominal injury, something that has plagued him for the better part of a week. Despite the apparent discomfort, Fox led the Kings in scoring and assists. The Kings are now four games adrift of the Grizzlies in the battle for the eighth seed; should they fall any further behind, a lingering injury could become more of an issue.
Fox (abdomen) is in the starting lineup for Thursday's contest against Philadelphia, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports. It's reported that Fox is nursing minor right abdominal tightness, but the injury won't be enough to keep him off the court. The former Kentucky standout is currently dropping 20.4 points, 6.7 assists and 4.0 rebounds in 42 outings this season.
