Fox totaled 21 points (6-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 8-9 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, three steals, and one block in 30 minutes during Saturday's 104-97 victory over Charlotte. Fox contributed in all major categories Saturday, doing so for the third straight game. The shooting has been up and down over the past two weeks but the supporting stats more than compensate. He has been one of the more surprising fantasy assets thus far and certainly has to be in the conversation for the most improved player award.
Fox finished with 20 points (9-14 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five steals, three rebounds and two assists across 22 minutes Monday in the Kings' 111-95 win over the Magic. Sacramento held a commanding 28-point lead entering the fourth quarter, prompting coach Dave Joerger to hand only one starter (Bogdan Bogdanovic) more than 30 minutes. Fox was still supremely efficient during his limited time on the court, establishing a new season high in steals along the way. He'll draw another favorable matchup in the second half of a back-to-back set Tuesday in Phoenix.
Fox mustered only eight points (3-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists and two steals across 31 minutes in Saturday's 127-123 loss to the Warriors. Saturday was easily Fox's worst complete game of the season. One can only speculate that Fox's shoulder injury may still be lingering, as his sudden downturn has no other reasonable explanation. He'll try to emerge from this slump against the Magic on Monday.
Fox acknowledged that he was experiencing some soreness in his shoulder following Sunday's 121-114 loss to the Lakers but doesn't expect to miss any time with the injury, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. "It hurts, but I can play," Fox said. "It's not enough for me to just sit out. I want to go out there and just help my team win." Fox got off to a hot start to Sunday's game, shooting 7-for-9 from the field in the first half before he took a blow to his shoulder from the Lakers' Kyle Kuzma late in the second quarter. The issue didn't prevent Fox from remaining in the contest after the intermission, with the point guard finishing out the loss with 26 points (12-19 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and three steals in 34 minutes. With Fox downplaying the injury, it's expected that he'll be ready to handle his normal minutes load in the Kings' next game Tuesday against Portland.
Fox finished with 26 points (12-19 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven assists, four rebounds, three steals, and one block in 34 minutes during Sunday's 121-114 loss to the Lakers. Fox suffered a shoulder injury Sunday but was able to play through it, finishing with a team-high 26 points in a loss to the Lakers. He was in some discomfort heading into the halftime break and owners should just keep an eye on his status leading up to Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers.
