Mason (heel) will remain out through the All-Star break, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 in Sacramento reports.
Mason is said to be progressing well and has not experienced any setbacks, but the Kings will exercise caution and hold him out for at least a couple more weeks as he continues to battle a plantar fascia injury. The Kansas product could be back in the mix before the end of the month, however, and he'll have a chance to see increased minutes down the stretch, as the Kings have publicly pivoted toward a younger rotation.
Mason recently underwent an MRI, which revealed a tear in the plantar fasciitis tendon in his right heel. He's expected to miss roughly 4-to-6 weeks, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Mason had reportedly been dealing with some soreness in his heel, which prompted the Kings to have him undergo additional testing. It's now been confirmed to be a more serious issue, which will cost him 4-to-6 weeks of action. That would put a return somewhere around mid-to-late February, though that will depend on how well the recovery process goes. The rookie second-round pick's absence should pave the way for guys like De'Aaron Fox, George Hill and Garrett Temple to see slightly expanded roles.
Mason (heel) will be sidelined for Tuesday's contest against the Lakers, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
Mason continues to recover from a right heel bruise, which is apparently still giving him too much discomfort to take the floor Tuesday. With him and George Hill (personal) also sidelined, De'Aaron Fox should see significant run and could make for an intriguing DFS option. Over the past three games, Fox has posted 15.3 points and 7.0 assists across 32.7 minutes per contest.
Mason (heel) is expected to miss one week, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Mason suffered a bruised right heel in Sunday's game against the Grizzlies and had already been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Hornets. With being out a week, Mason is in line to at least miss the team's next four games, but fellow rookie De'Aaron Fox (quad) is set to return Tuesday, so Mason's absence likely won't have much of an impact on the team's rotation.
Mason (heel) will not play Tuesday against the Hornets, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
Mason bruised his right heel during Sunday's game against the Grizzlies. The exact severity of the issue is still unknown, but luckily for him, the Kings won't play again until Saturday against the Nuggets.
