Why the Kings will have just one healthy point guard against the Spurs

Kings rookie Frank Mason received virtually every major college basketball award a year ago after completing his fourth season at Kansas. But the Jayhawks’ failure to advance beyond the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament in either of his final two seasons still stings.

Rookie point guard Frank Mason III has been ruled out of Monday's game against the San Antonio Spurs at AT&T Center with a sore left heel. Mason averages 7.9 points and 2.8 assists.

That leaves the Kings with De'Aaron Fox as the only healthy point guard. Garrett Temple, who has filled in at point guard, is still out with a sprained left ankle.

Temple will miss his ninth consecutive game Monday.

Bogdan Bogdanovic can also assume some of the responsibility initiating the offense to give Fox a break.

Forward Skal Labissiere will miss his third consecutive game with a sprained left ankle.
