Report: Sacramento Kings Release Medical Update After Marvin Bagley III Injures Foot During Practice

Sacramento Kings forward Marvin Bagley III underwent an MRI on Sunday night after injuring his right foot in practice, the team announced.

After a promising rookie season, Bagley has been hampered by injuries in year two. He dealt with a foot injury early in the season and played just 13 games before the COVID-19 pandemic struck.

Bagley, the No. 2 overall pick in 2018, has averaged 14.9 points and 7.6 rebounds per game over 62 games as a rookie.

Bagley’s latest injury especially hurts the Kings’ playoff hopes. Bagley and teammate De’Aaron Fox (ankle) are now dealing with injuries. Harrison Barnes, Alex Len and Richaun Holmes are currently quarantined.

The Kings enter the NBA’s restart outside the playoff bracket at 28-36, behind the Portland Trail Blazers and New Orleans Pelicans for the No. 11 spot in the Western Conference. All three teams are three-and-a-half games behind the Memphis Grizzlies for the final playoff spot.

Sacramento begins seeding play on July 31 against the San Antonio Spurs at 8 p.m. EST. It is still unknown if Bagley will be available for that game.
