Kings Await MRI Results On Bagley Foot Injury

Kings forward/center Marvin Bagley III underwent an MRI on Sunday night after suffering a right foot injury during practice, the team announced today in a press release. Sacramento is awaiting the results of that MRI.

It’s possible the injury won’t be a significant one, but if it forces Bagley to miss some time, it’ll be a tough break for both the team and the former No. 2 overall pick.

The Kings have already been affected by some bad luck in recent weeks, as four of their players – Buddy Hield, Jabari Parker, Alex Len, and Harrison Barnes – have tested positive for the coronavirus. De’Aaron Fox also suffered a sprained ankle, while Richaun Holmes was subjected to a 10-day quarantine period at Walt Disney World after accidentally crossing the NBA’s campus line.

Hield and Parker have since returned to practice, Len has cleared his quarantine period (per Jason Jones of The Athletic), and Holmes is close to doing so. Additionally, Fox’s ankle injury doesn’t appear serious. Still, the Kings haven’t had a full roster since reporting to Disney earlier in the month.

As for Bagley, he missed most of his sophomore NBA season with a foot injury, appearing in just 13 games this season. The hope was that he’d be back to full health and ready to contribute this summer, but that’s now up in the air. For what it’s worth, Bagley was sidelined for much of the season by a left foot ailment, so this is a new injury.

    He better start performing better. Kings must be regretting not taking Luka or Trea Young. Is he considered a Bust yet?

    • I bet they regret not taking Luka (bet the Suns do too!). Bagley has a lot of promise, he just hasn’t been healthy. To me “bust” is a high draft pick who was healthy enough to play but couldn’t “play” (ex: Anthony Bennett)

        I’m a Mavs fan. I’m happy how it planned out for sure, but I think Ayton is going to be a beast.

          He might, but Ayton will never be an MVP-type player like Doncic has already become so early in his career. Next season (2021) the MVP finalists will most likely be Giannis, Harden, and Doncic.
