Star point guard De’Aaron Fox has been playing injured for about a month, he told Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee.
Fox said that he initially bruised his right foot in the Sacramento Kings’ November 5 victory over the Orlando Magic. Coincidentally, this is the game where Fox hit a three-pointer from half-court at the buzzer to snag the win for the Kings in that contest.
In addition to the knee bruise, Fox told the Bee that he has also played through an illness and a thumb injury.
The Kings’ point guard struggles didn’t become noticeable until the team’s November 23 loss against the Atlanta Hawks.
