Fox clarified Monday that he's completely healthy after leaving Team USA prior to the FIBA World Cup, Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports Sacramento reports.
Fox leaving a USA team that had already suffered several high-profile departures came as a bit of a surprise, and the third-year guard continues to remain coy about his reasoning for the decision. "That's for me to know," Fox told a TMZ camera in Los Angeles. "I'm completely healthy." Read into that what you will, but the good news for Kings fans -- and fantasy owners -- is that Fox left Team USA on his own terms and not because of an injury.
Fox withdrew from Team USA on Saturday, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
Fox was promoted to the select team almost two weeks ago after several players dropped out of consideration and had a strong chance of making the final roster as a result. However, Fox has decided he rather focus on his upcoming season in Sacramento after a breakout campaign in 2018-19.
Fox was promoted to the Team USA National roster ahead of the FIBA World Cup, Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports reports.
While a number of high-profile NBA stars have dropped out of FIBA consideration in recent weeks, Fox will move up from the Select team and will likely have a good chance to make the final roster, which will head to China at the end of August. The Kentucky product is coming off of an impressive second year in the league in which he averaged 17.3 points, 7.3 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.6 steals in 81 games.
Fox finished with 17 points (8-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt), nine assists and one rebound across 17 minutes in the Kings' 136-131 loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
Fox was extremely efficient with his limited playing time, and he closed out an outstanding sophomore campaign by shooting 18-for-28 over his last two games. The 2017 fifth overall pick averaged 17.3 points (on 45.8 percent shooting, including 37.1 percent from three-point range), 7.3 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.6 steals across 31.4 minutes across 81 games this season. Looking ahead to the 2019-20 campaign, another leap forward could certainly be in the cards for Fox, who should see his scoring bump up another notch with at least a slight improvement in shooting.
Fox (foot) offered 24 points (10-18 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 11 assists, six rebounds, three steals and one block across 35 minutes in the Kings' 133-129 loss to the Pelicans on Sunday.
Fox shook off his probable designation to put together an excellent all-around effort, one that saw him check in second only to Harrison Barnes in scoring on the night for the Kings. The second-year guard had played only eight minutes against the Jazz on Friday before exiting with his foot injury, but he was clearly unencumbered while producing his second-double-double in the last three games. Fox now has six double-digit scoring efforts in the last eight contests on his way to closing out a breakout sophomore campaign in strong fashion.
Fox (foot) is available and starting Sunday's game against the Pelicans.
Fox suffered a minor foot injury during Friday's clash, but he'll be ready to roll Sunday evening. The Kentucky product is averaging 15.3 points, 7.3 assists and 3.9 rebounds over his last seven matchups.
Fox (foot) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Pelicans.
Fox was removed from Friday's game against Utah after eight minutes of run due to right foot soreness. Given the fact that the Kings are outside of the playoff race and have just two games remaining, Fox could be held out if he experiences any discomfort pregame Sunday. That said, current expectations are that he'll see the floor.
Fox was removed from Friday's game against Utah and won't return due to right foot soreness, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Fox registered four points (2-5 FG), a rebound, an assist and a steal over eight minutes prior to departing. He'll be considered day-to-day moving forward, although the Kings are unlikely to rush him back into action with only two games left on the docket this season.
Fox had 25 points (11-22 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 12 assists, five rebounds, three steals, and one block in 37 minutes during Thursday's 121-118 loss to New Orleans.
This loss basically rules the Kings out of playoff basketball, however, it certainly didn't slow Fox who had a nice all-around performance. In fact, it was his seventh 20-10 game of the season, something that people would not have expected at the beginning of the season. He has had himself a breakout campaign and is going to rocket up the draft boards next season with owners likely having to grab him in at least the fifth round of standard leagues.
Fox had 23 points (6-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 11-12 FT), eight assists, and five rebounds in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 125-121 victory over Dallas.
Fox hit just 6-of-16 from the field, continuing to struggle on the offensive end. Thankfully, he was able to compensate with an impressive 11-of-12 from the charity stripe. He also failed to record a defensive stat after accumulating a whopping six steals and one block in his previous outing. The Kings are playing for pride right now, and are likely pushing to finish the season with a positive record. There has been no talk of a shutdown at all and Fox should continue to put up numbers similar to his season averages moving forward.
Fox totaled nine points (3-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists, six steals and one block across 27 minutes in the Kings' 111-106 loss to the Lakers on Sunday.
Fox enjoyed diametrically opposite games on each end of the floor, as he generated his worst shooting performance since coming up empty on four attempts Dec. 17 against the Timberwolves but also recorded a season-high six steals. Fox is actually in a modest two-game slump offensively, as he'd also gone just 3-for-12 from the field against the Suns on Saturday. However, given his body of work overall this season, it's likely he bounces back from that pair of outliers in short order as the Kings continue to try and hold on to playoff hopes.
Fox finished with 27 points (10-20 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), nine assists, four rebounds, and one steal in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 123-121 loss to the Nets.
Fox was dominant in the first half Tuesday, ending the game with 27 points and nine assists. After establishing a 28 point lead, the Kings faltered late to allow the Nets to leave with a two-point victory. Fox has been one of the more surprising fantasy players this season and is sure to be drafted a lot higher heading into next year. The Kings are out of the playoff race but should continue to play their young guys moving forward.
Fox finished with 16 points (4-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 7-8 FT), six assists, two rebounds and a block over 29 minutes in the Kings' loss to the 76ers on Friday.
Fox has been hot in the month of March, averaging 19.3 points, 7.8 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.8 steals in six games. Much improved from his rookie season to this season, Fox has an incredibly high ceiling and has yet to tap into his full potential as he inches toward becoming a 20 point-10 assist player.
Fox contributed 19 points (7-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-8 FT), nine assists, seven rebounds and three steals in 37 minutes during Thursday's loss to Boston.
Fox provided solid point-guard play once again for the Kings. The second-year guard's scored in double-figures in each of his past 13 games and is averaging 7.2 assists per game on the season, making him one of the best plays at point guard in fantasy going forward.
Fox finished with 23 points (8-16 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-8 FT), eight assists, four rebounds and two steals over 38 minutes in the Kings' loss to the Wizards on Monday.
Fox poured in 23 points to go with his quality stat line, despite falling to the Wizards on Monday. Fox has stepped up his game in his sophomore season with the surprisingly competent Kings, averaging 17.4 points and 7.2 assists on a very efficient 46.2 percent shooting from the floor and 37.0 percent shooting from three.
Fox scored a game-high 30 points (11-17 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-8 FT) while adding eight assists, five rebounds and a steal in 37 minutes during Saturday's 102-94 win over the Knicks.
Twelve of his points came in the final six minutes of the game, as Fox nearly single-handedly staved off a late push by New York. It's the third time this season he's popped for 30-plus points, and the second-year guard's breakout campaign has solidified his spot as one of the foundation pieces for a rebuilding Kings squad.
Fox tallied 16 points (5-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-8 FT), four rebounds, four steals, and three assists in 33 minutes during Monday's 115-108 victory over the Knicks.
Fox struggled from the free-throw line Monday, finishing with just 5-of-8. His assist total was only three, his lowest amount in almost a month. He salvaged the line with four steals which certainly would have made his owners happy. Fox continues to have a breakout season and should be in line for big minutes on a nightly basis with the Kings still battling for a playoff spot in the West.
Fox totaled 23 points (8-24 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), five assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 33 minutes during Monday's 112-105 loss to Minnesota.
Fox provided owners with solid production once again Monday, despite the Kings falling to the Timberwolves. Fox is on a nice run right now, having scored in double-figures in eight of his past nine games. His passing game continues to be a strong element when looking at his overall value, whilst his defense is constantly improving. The Kings remain on the outside looking in when it comes to the playoff picture and tonight's loss certainly doesn't help their cause.
Fox compiled 19 points (7-16 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT), nine assists, three blocks, one rebound, and one steal in 34 minutes during Saturday's 119-116 victory over Oklahoma City.
Fox was big down the stretch for the Kings as they held off a fast-finishing Thunder, eventually winning the game by three points. Fox made some crucial buckets and also chipped in with three blocks. The Kings are going to be vying for a playoff seed meaning Fox should get all the run he can handle moving forward with very little risk of a shutdown.
Fox totaled 15 points (6-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 10 assists, and four rebounds in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 120-118 loss to the Nuggets.
Fox ended Wednesday's loss with a double-double including 10 assists. Fox has cooled off after a blistering start to the season, hitting multiple three-pointers just once in his past 15 games. The scoring has fluctuated but the assists have remained reasonably constant. The loss puts the Kings one win out of the eighth-seed, a position they are likely to continue competing for after the break.
