The hits keep rolling for the Sacramento Kings. De'Aaron Fox is out for the foreseeable future with an ankle injury. Marvin Bagley traveled with the team on the current four-game road trip, but will not play due to his still healing broken right thumb. And now Bogdan Bogdanovic is having an issue as well.
Sacramento's super-sub set a new career-high in scoring on Tuesday evening when he dropped 31 points in the Kings' win over the Phoenix Suns, but he watched the final 1:22 of the fourth quarter from the bench.
Bogdanovic is dealing with tightness in his left hamstring and is questionable for Friday's game against the Brooklyn Nets.
The 6-foot-6 wing could be seen grabbing at his left hamstring late in the win over Phoenix. Following the game, he said that his leg felt okay and believed it was just a cramp. He is expected to be listed as day-to-day moving forward.
After a rough start to the season, Bogdanovic is on a tear as of late for Sacramento. Over his six games, the 27-year-old guard is aeraging 21.3 points, 6.7 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 2.3 steals in 32.6 minutes per game. He's also shooting 53 percent from the field and a stunning 56.5 percent from 3-point range on 7.7 attempts per game.
Bogdanovic is a huge reason the Kings have rallied back after starting the season 0-5. He's taken over as the primary ball handler with Fox out of action and his confidence is at an all-time high.
If Bogdanovic can't suit up, head coach Luke Walton will have to get creative with his rotations. Expect to see Cory Jospeh and Buddy Hield to carry even more of the load in the backcourt and veteran Yogi Ferrell will likely get a longer look with the second unit.
The Kings also have rookie Justin James and two-way player DeQuan Jeffries on the roster if they need some added depth.
