Fox (Achilles) will not participate in Las Vegas Summer League, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports. According to Cunningham, Fox would not participate even if healthy -- news that doesn't come as much of a surprise considering he started 60 of his 73 appearances as a rookie and is a key piece in the Kings' rebuild. Aside from summer league, more information on Fox's Achilles injury may emerge in the upcoming days, though there's been nothing to suggest it's serious. All signs are pointing to him being ready for training camp.
Fox (Achilles) will remain out for Thursday's summer league matchup with the Heat, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports. Fox is dealing with a sore Achilles and while it's not expected to be anything serious, the Kings will hold their young guard out as a precautionary measure in what is essentially a meaningless game. The Kings are also scheduled to play in the Vegas Summer League over the next few weeks and the team debuts on Saturday against the Suns, so there's a possibility Fox returns for that contest. Of course, there's also a chance the Kings opt to keep him out for the rest of the summer league entirely.
Fox is dealing with a sore left Achilles and will sit out Tuesday's summer league game against the Warriors, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Fox was dominant in his summer league debut Monday, tallying 23 points, eight rebounds, six assists and three steals. However, it appears he also came out of that contest with a sore left Achilles and the Kings aren't going to take any chances with his health. Fox will get the night off Tuesday as a result and at this point, it's unclear if Sacramento will give Fox the green light to return Thursday against the Heat. Guys like Frank Mason, Marcus Foster and Allerik Freeman could see added minutes at point guard in Fox's place.
Fox had 23 points (9-15 FG, 1-6 3PT, 4-6 FT), eight rebounds, six assists, and three steals in Monday's summer league win over the Lakers. Last year's No. 5 overall pick looked like the best player on the floor for much of the game, and he converted eight of his nine attempts from inside the arc. Expect Fox to continue to be a key piece on the Kings' summer league roster, which features several players -- Justin Jackson, Frank Mason, Harry Giles, Marvin Bagley -- who will be in the rotation in 2018-19.
Fox pitched in 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-2 FT), eight rebounds and four assists across 27 minutes in a 96-83 win over the Rockets on Wednesday. The rookie thus finished his first season in solid fashion, as he generated six straight double-digit scoring efforts to wrap up the campaign. The 20-year-old Fox also improved his work on the glass over the final four games, hauling in between six and nine boards in three of them. Although he unsurprisingly suffered through some stretches of inconsistency, the former Wildcat finished the campaign with 11.6 points (on 41.2 percent shooting), 4.4 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.0 steal across 27.8 minutes in 73 games (61 starts).
