Sacramento Kings: Injury updates and predicted lineup

After suffering a disappointing loss at the hands of the Timberwolves, the Kings made a resounding victory in the second game as they beat the Wolves 128-125.

The Kings will be missing some key players through injuries. Forward Marvin Bagley III is sidelined due to a hand injury, and center Richaun Holmes probable as he recovers from a hamstring injury. Forward Robert Woodward II is out with a back injury.

But the biggest blow to the Kings is the absence of De’Aaron Fox, who is out due to the league’s medical protocols. Given the players they are missing, a win against the Warriors will be a massive result for the rest of the side.
