Fox (pink eye) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Thunder, Sean Cunningham of ABC10 (KXTV) Sacramento reports.
Fox came down with pink eye over the last few days and in an attempt to avoid spreading the illness, will get the night off Thursday. His next opportunity to take the court will come on Saturday against the Lakers, though he can tentatively be considered questionable for that contest for the time being. With Fox out, Frank Mason (heel) could see decent run in his first game back, while guys like Garrett Temple and Buddy Hield have the chance to see added run in the backcourt as well.
Fox is listed a probable for Thursday's game against the Thunder due to conjunctivitis, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Conjunctivitis is simply the medical term for pink eye. Fox apparently picked up the issue sometime after appearing in last week's Rising Stars game. His status should clear up following Thursday morning's shootaround; if he's unable to play, look for Frank Mason (heel) and Garrett Temple to see some increased run.
Fox (face) is expected to play in Friday's Rising Stars game following a medical examination, Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee reports.
Fox fell and hit the floor hard at the end of Wednesday's game against the Rockets, and while he did require some stitches above his right eye and chin, it doesn't look like the rookie is dealing with any further damage. The Kings' biggest concern was a possible concussion, but with Fox appearing to have been medically cleared for Friday's game, he wasn't dealing with anything that serious. Assuming all goes right in the Rising Stars game, expect Fox to be healthy and read by the end of the All-Star break.
Fox received stitches above his right eye and chin after Wednesday's game against the Rockets.
Fox suffered a hard fall at the end of the fourth quarter of Wednesday's matchup against the Rockets. It's unsure if Fox will be entered into the concussion protocol as he fell on his head. This was the Kings last game before the All-Star break, giving them seven days until their next matchup. More information should come out in the following days, but for now, he should be considered questionable for the first game back after the All-Star break.
Fox had 11 points (5-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt), seven assists, four rebounds and one steal in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 114-109 victory over Dallas.
Fox finished with double-figures for the eighth time in the past nine games. He has also played in at least 30 minutes in seven of those games and appears to be locked in as the starting point-guard. George Hill was shipped out at the deadline, leaving Fox as the primary ball-handler and someone the organization views as a long-term prospect. He is probably deserving of a roster spot in all leagues, despite the issues with his efficiency from the field.
