He was fouled hard in the first quarter and landed heavily on his tailbone. Fox looked ginger ever since and was seen icing it on the bench.
A drive to the rim late in the second quarter looked to have aggravated the injury so the Kings decided to shut him down for the remainder of the night.
Fox tallied three points, one assist and one steal in nine minutes of action (1-of-3 FG).
