Bagley is completing his rehab program for his fractured left hand away from the Kings, but he's made good progress since suffering the injury March 15, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
Bagley is scheduled to be re-evaluated in four weeks, so the Kings should have another update on the big man's condition by the middle of April. While Bagley is sidelined, Harrison Barnes is expected to remain the Kings' starting power forward, with the newly acquired Maurice Harkless serving as his primary backup.
Bagley (hand) will not require surgery and will be re-evaluated in four weeks, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
The good news for Bagley is that he will not need surgery on his fractured left hand, but he is still going to miss about a month at minimum, at which point the team will provide another update. With Sacramento not in the playoff picture, there won't be tons of incentive to rush Bagley back to close out the season. Hassan Whiteside and Nemanja Bjelica could see increased roles while Bagley remains sidelined.
Bagley suffered a fractured left hand in Monday's matchup with the Hornets, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
Bagley was forced out of Monday's game after producing 12 points (6-9 FG, 0-2 3PT), three rebounds and one block across 16 minutes. Subsequent X-rays confirmed he sustained a fracture of the fourth metacarpal in his shooting hand. He will now need to undergo further medical evaluations, so there is no timeline for how long he will be sidelined. The primary beneficiary of his presumed absence going forward will likely be Nemanja Bjelica.
Bagley has been ruled out for the remainder of Monday's game against the Hornets due to a left hand injury, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Bagley appeared to be bothered by a left hand issue early in Monday's game and went to the locker room in the second quarter. He was ruled out for the remainder of the contest at halftime, and it's not yet clear whether the injury will impact his availability for Wednesday's game against the Wizards. Prior to his departure, Bagley recorded 12 points (6-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three rebounds and one block over 16 minutes.
Bagley has scored in double-figures in 13 straight contests, averaging 16.8 points per game on 54.3 percent shooting during that stretch.
For the most part, Bagley remains just a points/rebounds contributor in fantasy leagues, as he's averaging just 1.1 assists and 1.0 combined blocks and steals over that 13-game sample. He's notched four double-doubles during that span, though the most recent of those came back on Feb. 28 against Charlotte. In two post-All-Star-break contests, Bagley is averaging 11.5 points, 7.0 boards, 1.0 assists and 1.0 block in 23.5 minutes.
Bagley collected 24 points (11-20 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals and a blocked shot across 35 minutes in Sunday's 127-126 loss to Charlotte.
Bagley continued his recent run of strong play, notching his ninth straight game with double figures in the scoring column. Sunday's performance was his fourth double-double during that span and his 10th overall this season. Bagley is enjoying a solid campaign with per-game averages of 14.1 points and 7.6 boards, though his 54.1 free-throw percentage dings his overall fantasy appeal.
Bagley scored 19 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT) with five rebounds and one steal in the Kings' 140-121 loss to the Knicks on Thursday.
Bagley had a great first half, scoring 16 points and grabbing four rebounds, but couldn't follow it up in the second as he was held to just three points and two shot attempts. The forward has been playing well of late, averaging 17.8 points and 8.2 rebounds over his last six games. Bagley played only 22 minutes because the Kings didn't have much of a chance to come back in the fourth, but with Jabari Parker (COVID-19 protocols) and Hassan Whiteside (COVID-19 protocols) both out of the lineup, Bagley should see some more action in upcoming games.
Bagley recorded 12 points (5-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 10 rebounds and two blocks in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 127-118 loss to the Nets.
Tuesday marked Bagley's third double-double in four games. The forward has picked up his work on the glass lately. Over his past seven appearances, he's averaged 8.6 rebounds and hasn't dipped below six in a single game during this stretch. In his previous five games, he had averaged just 4.2 boards.
Bagley recorded 12 points (5-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one block during Sacramento's 128-115 loss to Milwaukee on Sunday.
Bagley had a quieter game Sunday after three straight games of at least 19 points. The Kings welcomed back Richaun Holmes (knee) to the frontcourt after a three-game absence, but his presence didn't affect Bagley's recent minutes and usage. The forward has stayed healthy this year, which was a big question mark coming into the season, as he has only missed two games due to a sore calf. The 2018 second overall pick has shown glimpses of dominance during his three years in the NBA, but he has lacked the consistency necessary to take his game to the next level. Bagley is averaging 13.5 points and 7.6 rebounds per game this season and shooting a career-high 39.2 percent from three.
Bagley produced 26 points (10-19 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and two steals across 35 minutes in Saturday's 122-114 loss to the Bulls.
Bagley absorbed output usually reserved for Harrison Barnes and Richaun Holmes, and put together an excellent total in the loss. Hassan Whiteside will continue to push the frontcourt for playing time, but Bagley has earned the starting role in his third season. His job is safe if he can stay off the injury report.
Bagley totaled 19 points (7-12 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-6 FT), 10 rebounds and two assists in Thursday's 118-110 loss to the Heat.
As expected, Bagley turned in an efficient number with Richaun Holmes sidelined. In his third season with the Kings, Bagley has blossomed into an everyday starter who is finally realizing his potential after an injury-riddled sophomore season. Injuries are still an issue for him, as his recent calf injury keeps him on a minute restriction.
Bagley will remain on a minutes limit for Thursday's game against the Heat, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
Bagley will still be on a minutes limit after he played 21 minutes during Tuesday's loss to Brooklyn in a return from a calf injury. The 21-year-old center will likely start again with Richaun Holmes (knee) unlikely to play, so he may see a slight uptick in minutes in his second game back from injury.
Bagley (calf) scored 19 points (7-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while adding seven rebounds and a block in only 21 minutes during Monday's 136-125 loss to the Nets.
After missing the prior two games with a calf injury, Bagley returned to the court and put together his best scoring performance in nearly a month. The 21-year-old has had a strange season so far -- his free-throw percentage (51.4 percent) has cratered, while he's worked hard to become a reliable three-point shooter (37.1 percent) -- but Bagley still has time to put all the pieces together on the offensive end.
Bagley (calf) is in the starting lineup for Monday's game against Brooklyn, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The Kings view Bagley (calf) as day-to-day and will re-evaluate him early Monday before determining his status ahead of the team's game later in the day against the Nets, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Since the Kings are playing the second half of a back-to-back set Monday, an official update on Bagley's status versus the Nets may not be available until shortly before the 10 p.m. ET tipoff. Bagley has missed two straight games with a sore left calf, which has allowed Nemanja Bjelica and Hassan Whiteside to pick up some extra minutes in the frontcourt.
Bagley (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Bagley will miss a second straight game due to left calf tightness. DaQuan Jeffries will start alongside Harrison Barnes against Memphis, while Nemanja Bjelica and Glenn Robinson could also see increased run for the Kings. It's not yet clear whether Bagley could return Monday against Brooklyn.
