Marvin Bagley suffers right foot injury in practice

The injury bug has bitten Bagley and the Kings again.

The Sacramento Kings announced that Marvin Bagley suffered a foot injury Sunday during practice. According to the team an MRI was performed last night and the team is waiting for the MRI results to be evaluated by doctors.

An MRI was performed on Sacramento Kings forward Marvin Bagley III last night following an injury to his right foot during Sunday’s practice. The team is awaiting further evaluation of his MRI from doctors and will share more information once the results become available.

One sliver of good news is that this is his right foot, which is not the same foot that was injured earlier in the season.

Injuries, especially soft tissue injuries, were a major concern as the NBA began to ramp up for play. De'Aaron Fox is also out after injuring his ankle in practice last week. An update on his status should come sometime towards the end of this week.

We will continue to update as we learn more.

Update: Luke Walton spoke to media shortly after Bagley’s injury was announced. Here are some statements from that:

“We do not have an update. He is receiving an MRI. He hurt his right foot yesterday in practice on an offensive rebound. He came down on somebody’s foot and that’s all we have.”

“He was a little frustrated, obviously. He was another guy that was having a good camp. He looked great, he was flying up and down the court. Whether it’s him or anybody, when you put in this amount of time to make it at this level and you really want to kind of show what you can do, injuries can be a very frustrating part of the game.” “He’s going to have a very successful career when it’s all said and done, it was a bumpy year so far. This is another bump and you’ve just got to keep taking it and fighting and come out the other side.”

“Marvin has had to go through injuries before and he’s handled them great. So, hopefully it’s not too bad, but we’ll hear back and find that out, and the important thing is no matter what the news is that we attack it together and we’re positive about what we’re trying to build with him and with the group.”

“Harry [Giles] and Bjeli [Nemanja Bjelica] were the two fives today in practice. Bjeli did a great job at it. He gives us a different dimension with how he spaces the floor. So for now, that’s what it is, it’s Hary and Bjeli. We have Alex back, but he’s still got a lot of work to do before he’s ready to play games. We’ll be hopefully getting Richaun [Holmes] back tomorrow.”

With the amount of injuries the team has had, Walton was asked if there is an issue with the medical staff in terms of the way players are being trained/prepared: “No, the medical staff does a great job, they work extremely hard. Marvin came down on someone’s foot on an offensive rebound, that’s one of the most common things in playing basketball. So, it’s definitely not that. Our training staff is very qualified, they do a great job and they are very good at their jobs.”

Let’s make a deal: Seattle gets the kings franchise, and Sacramento gets a brand new team via the expansion draft.
 
I anticipate that the expansion draft team will be the superior on-the-court product within 3 years of its creation.

Serious question: How is this good news? We have seen what happens when bigs start having chronic and varying foot issues.
 
 

One sliver of good news is that this is his right foot, which is not the same foot that was injured earlier in the season.

The only good news is that this should, in theory, hasten the firing of Vlade as GM. Then again, they did just give him a 4yr extension for uh…building a team that only went 4 games under .500 rather than their usual 20+ games under .500.

Even now, with Vlade, I have a private joke with him, that if his choices don’t work out with him in a couple of years, that he’ll be shaving his head. So if you see Vlade with a shaved head in a couple of years, you’ll know what happened.

 
-Vivek Ranadive
 
Quoted from: https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nba/kings/2016/10/09/vivek-ranadive-kings-golden-1-center-nba/91837248/
 
 
Vlade has not shaved his head.
 
So not only does Vivek not demand much of Vlade (don’t worry about losing your job, Vlade–just your hair!), but for the little he does hold him accountable, he doesn’t even follow through with it.

Unretire Vlade’s Jersey. Fire all of the scouts. Get rid of the basketball operations team. Anyone involved with this decision needs to be removed from the franchise. This was a historically disastrous decision and that was before we discovered Bagley’s body breaks whenever he steps outside.

Bagley will complete two NBA seasons with 21 games being his largest consecutive game span. He has missed two or more games six times during this two year period (and that is counting this most recent episode as attached to his last run of missed games).
 
Doncic – 126 games, 4117 minutes
Young – 141, 4623
Jaren Jackson – 112, 3027
Bagley – 75, 1901

With the infamous 1st round pick Vlade traded away, and now this pick which isn’t amounting to much, that’s two drafts wasted by a franchise that needs the draft to rebuild.

They need to it mount above a dumpster behind G1C and it can forever be the Vlade Divac Memorial Trash Heap Award for Front Office Incompetence. It would reside permanently as it would be hard for anyone to be worse than Vlade has been.

We could easily have Fox and Doncic or Doncic and Tatum or hell even Fox, Doncic and Mitchell going forward as our core and we could be contending for titles. But no, we’ve got Fox and ………………………. I can’t wait until Fox requests a trade at the end of next season after missing the playoffs for the 15th consecutive season and tying the all time record. It’s going to be magical.

I’m about the harshest Vlade critic, and the pick of Bagley was a colossal mistake any way you cut it, but I don’t believe he had injury concerns and I find it hard to hold it much against Vlade.
 
Having said that, this FO will likely use his injuries as a lifeline/get out of jail card, and only the thought is already pissing me of.

I got tested (in LA) because I thought I had symptoms. Just had to answer a question about it.
 
If you’re not feeling symptoms but think you might’ve gotten it by being exposed to someone, you could possibly say you have had headaches and I think you could get admitted to test.
 
I mean, if you’re a Kings fan, that’s probably always the case.

Since Kaiser operates on a model where they are both insurer and provider, they are all about cost effective healthcare. No way they’d cover the cost of a test without symptoms.

I would argue that Kaiser can theoretically provide better care because they don’t have a (separate) insurance company digging into their pockets. That being said, I’m sure you can find horror stories and stories of lives being saved via Kaiser. I’ve heard both.

Basically, the shooting and off-ball interior defense are potentially good. But not much else.
 
He’s an interesting case because at first glance, you see the shooting and blocks and see a potential modern stretch big. The problem is he doesn’t really project to do anything else. Personally, my biggest concern (aside from being a complete non-passer) is that I’m just not sure he’ll be able to defend any decent NBA players. I don’t think he’ll be able to hold position against interior 5s on either end and his lack of perimeter defending skills/tools mean he could struggle even with agile 5s, to say nothing of NBA PFs and switching onto anybody else.
 
Personally, I’d say somewhere around the end of the 1st/early 2nd looks about right for him.
