Sprained ankle will keep Jeffries out another six weeks



Sacramento Kings forward DaQuan Jeffries just cannot catch a break. During his first on court action following a prolonged absence due to back soreness, the Kings athletic second-year wing rolled his left ankle when coming down on a teammate’s foot during practice Tuesday.


An MRI was performed on Wednesday revealing a Grade 3 sprain. Jeffries will be re-evaluated in six weeks according to the team.


The former Tulsa standout played primarily for the Kings’ G-League squad in Stockton last season before shining with the parent team during their eight-game bubble appearance last summer. He was rewarded with a guaranteed contract with the Kings for the 2020-21 season and was expected to be in the bench rotation.


Point guard De’Aaron Fox suffered a similar injury last season and missed 17 games as a result. Fox came back much sooner than expected so we will see if DaQuan has similar super healing powers as well.

With Tyrese Haliburton sidelined for a while with a wrist injury, I could see Kyle Guy potentially battling with Glenn Robinson III for time as the 4th guard in the rotation behind Cory Joseph. He has proven himself in the preseason and head coach Luke Walton has given plenty of praise on him of late.


Two-way contracts work a little different this year. Guy will be able to stay with the parent squad for the duration of the season and can play in as many as 50 of the team’s 72 games. So basically, it is like having a 17-man roster with Chimezie Metu being the other two-way player under contract.


The Kings have chosen to scrap the Stockton G-League…

Kyle Guy is still a two way player with Sac. This kid can shoot lights out, wake the hell up Sac. He rarely looses the ball on turnovers, while Buddy Love on a regular basis every game has a melt down as to where and what he is doing on the court. The kid shot a last second shot and won the game, in the G league he is tearing it up. Sac plays the same seven players nearly every game, come on gang this is not rocket science , it is plain run and gun, get r done put this kid on a contract and lets win some games.
