Kings guard De’Aaron Fox will not play in Monday’s preseason game against the Portland Trail Blazers at Golden 1 Center because of a lower back contusion. He’s listed as day-to-day.
Precautionary X-rays Monday on Fox’s back were negative. He was injured when he landed hard on a fall in the second quarter of Sunday’s 75-69 preseason loss to the Los Angeles Lakers at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
“I’ll be all right,” Fox said Sunday night. “They want me to do X-rays and I’m going to do it, but at this point I’ll be fine.”
