Sacramento Kings forward Chimezie Metu has entered the league’s Health and Safety Protocols as of Tuesday and will likely miss the next three to four games for the Kings.
Metu joins starting center Richaun Holmes who was sidelined over the weekend.
There are still several key Sacramento players who have not yet been swept up in the latest Covid-19 outbreak including Harrison Barnes, Buddy Hield, and Tyrese Haliburton. But it is likely inevitable that they will fall at some point. Hopefully, absences can be spread over a longer period rather than in clusters so the team can more easily absorb the roster depletion.
Jahmi’us Ramsey has been recalled from the team’s G-League affiliate to fill in for Metu in the meantime.
