The hits just keep on coming for the Sacramento Kings this season.
On Tuesday, the team announced that guard Terence Davis underwent successful surgery in New York City on his right wrist to repair the ECU tendon. He will be re-evaluated in approximately three months, but essentially his season is over.
After struggling early on this year, the third-year swingman had really started to catch fire and was making a strong case to replace sharp-shooter Buddy Hield as the team’s lead scorer off the bench.
On January 19, he dropped a career-high 35 points against the Detroit Pistons. But six days later, while driving to the hoop in Boston, he was fouled hard and crashed onto the floor injuring his head and wrist. He returned to the court to try and complete the three-point play but missed the free-throw and never returned.
It will be interesting to see what Sacramento decides to do with the remainder of the season. With Davis out, Hield presents the only real scoring threat off the bench and all the rumors have the Kings trading Buddy Love by the February 10 deadline.
Terence is under contract with Sacramento for the 2022-23 season, so he’ll be back ready to light it up next year.
