What some expected to be a breakout 2019-20 season for the Sacramento Kings is not off to the greatest of starts.

Fresh off a blowout loss to the Phoenix Suns, Luke Walton and Co. will be without stud second-year forward Marvin Bagley III for the next four-to-six weeks after he suffered a fractured thumb in the opener.

Some were questioning why Bagley played only 28 minutes in Wednesday’ opener. We now have an answer to said question.

The No. 2 overall pick last year, Bagley averaged 14.9 points and 7.6 rebounds while shooting at a 50% mark from the field as a rookie.
