Sacramento’s Marvin Bagley will miss the entirety of the 2019-20 NBA restart as it was determined that he suffered a lateral sprain of his right foot during practice Sunday in Orlando according to the Kings.
An MRI was taken shortly after the injury and a foot specialist was consulted, resulting in the delayed report by the team. He will remain in a walking boot for the next two weeks but is expected to make a full recovery in time for the start of the 2020-21 season. Whenever that starts.
This setback is completely unrelated to the left foot injuries he suffered earlier in the 2019-20 season.
As a result, Richaun Holmes, Nemanja Bjelica, Alex Len, and Harry Giles will likely manage the 4/5 spots during the Orlando restart. While it would have been great to see Marvin out on the floor after missing so much time during the season, the immediate impact to the squad is minimal, as he was not really an active participant in the team’s recent success.
