De’Aaron Fox (lower back contusion) will not play on Monday against the Blazers according to James Ham.
Fox underwent X-Rays earlier on Monday morning and they came back negative which is a good sign. He’s currently listed as day-to-day and it’s an injury that shouldn’t affect him much moving into the regular season. Fox suffered the injury in the first half of Sunday’s preseason game against the Lakers when he was fouled hard-driving to the rim. He continued to play through the pain but was clearly experiencing discomfort when moving around on the floor. He did not return to the game following the halftime break.
