The team stated that Davis is expected to be re-assessed in three months. Thus, barring a playoff run, he’ll miss the rest of the NBA season.
At 18-34 and losers of seven straight, the Kings are currently the No. 13 seed in the West. That said, the club is still just 3.5 games out of the No. 10 seed (and thus, a play-in tournament berth) in the conference.
The 6’4″ vet out of Ole Miss averaged 10.4 PPG, 3.1 RPG, 1.3 APG and 0.8 SPG across 30 games this season for the Kings, mostly in a bench role. The 24-year-old went undrafted in 2019, but showed plenty of promise after signing with the Raptors ahead of the 2019/20 season.
After being dealt to the Kings during the 2020/21, in part due to disturbing legal issues, Davis entered free agency this past summer, and signed a two-year, $8MM deal to return to the club during the offseason.
