Hopefully Fox can play in the first 8 games. Otherwise, the Kings low playoff odds will drop even further. To make the postseason for the first time since 2006, the Sacramento Kings have to do very well in those 8 games and hope the Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Pelicans, Portland Trail Blazers, San Antonio Spurs and Phoenix Suns don’t succeed.

Like currently, the Grizzlies are in 8th place in the Western Conference standings while Fox and Co are in 11th place. Before the season ended in March, Fox averaged 20.4 points, 4.0 rebounds and 6.8 assists for the Kings.
