The long inactivity for players during quarantine is starting to pay off unfortunately, as players begin to get injured at 'the bubble', which also happens to be the first place they've played full scrimmages since March.
This is the case for De'Aaron Fox, who according to Marc Stein from the NY Times, suffered a sprained left ankle during the Kings practice and is expected to be out for at least 7 to 10 days.
The Kings' De'Aaron Fox is out for at least 7 to 10 days with a sprained left ankle he suffered in practice tonight ... as we tried to tweet an hour ago— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) July 16, 2020
Sacramento's third-year point guard, is averaging numbers of 20.4 points, 4.0 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 1.4 steals this season. Even at an early age, Fox has become the leader of the squad, as he tries to lead the Kings to their first playoff appearance since 2006.
This isn't the first ankle injury he suffers, as earlier this season, Fox missed four weeks with a sprained ankle. The guard still has managed to put his team in a great position to make the playoffs, being only four games behind the eight seed, Memphis Grizzlies.
Fox joins Rajon Rondo as the two players who have gotten injured so far while at 'the bubble'.
