Kings forward Skal Labissiere (shoulder) and guard Frank Mason III (heel) are probable for Thursday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, coach Dave Joerger told reporters after Wednesday’s practice.

Mason has been out since injuring his heel Dec. 31 against the Memphis Grizzlies. The rookie from Kansas returns as the backup point guard to rookie De’Aaron Fox. Fox has been the only point guard since Kings traded George Hill to Cleveland Feb. 8.

Mason is averaging 7.6 points and 2.9 rebounds in 29 games.

Labissiere last played Jan. 25 at Miami. The second-year forward from Kentucky is averaging 7.9 points and 4.5 rebounds in 42 games.
