Indiana’s all-time assist leader could be in for a meaningful role in Orlando.
Sacramento starting point guard De’Aaron Fox is on the shelf with an ankle injury, meaning Yogi Ferrell should see more playing time when the NBA resumes play in Orlando, at least initially.
Fox underwent an MRI last Wednesday following the team’s practice and is likely to miss time early after sustaining a second left ankle sprain this season.
Ferrell has appeared in 44 games thus far during the 2019-20 campaign. He is averaging 4.2 points, 1.3 assists and 1.1 rebounds in 11 minutes of action per contest.
The 6-0 former IU point guard saw his minutes and production jump considerably when Fox missed a month in November and December due to his first ankle injury. Cory Joseph will also see a significant role.
Ferrell spoke with the media this week about life in the NBA bubble in Orlando, his anticipated role, and much more.
The Kings (28-36) resume play on July 31 against San Antonio.
