Kings guard Fox out for at least two weeks with torn quad


Sacramento Kings rookie guard De'Aaron Fox will be out at least two weeks with a partially torn quad muscle, the team announced on Friday.

Fox injured his thigh in Tuesday's 101-95 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. He underwent an MRI after the injury and it revealed the partial tear in his quad.

The number five overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft missed his first game of the year Sunday after he bruised his thigh last week in a matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Fox will be reevaluated in two weeks by the team to see if he is fit to get back to action.

He is averaging 9.4 points and 3.7 assists per game this season.
