Sacramento Kings’ De’Aaron Fox is a fast healer.
Less than ten days after going down with a moderate left ankle sprain, the speedy third-year guard is ready to go, and is expected to see time on the court during one or both of the team’s last two scrimmages before the July 31 kickoff of the 8-game Bubble season.
On Friday, Fox participated in full-contact practice and felt good afterwards. How his ankle reacts later in the day will determine if he is ready for the July 25 early morning scrimmage against the Milwaukee Bucks.
The ankle was the same one he injured back in November, prompting the cautious initial timeline by the team. But once again, De’Aaron’s timeline is not your normal weekend warrior’s timeline.
