De'Aaron Fox handed out nine assists on Sunday vs. the Suns while adding 17 points, six boards, two steals and two triples.
Fox is one of many deserving Most Improved Player candidates as he's blown up this season with top-50 production after being outside of the top-200 as a rookie in 8-cat leagues. He'll be at All-Star Weekend this season but for the lesser festivities on Friday and Saturday.

De'Aaron Fox led the Kings in their 127-112 win over the Spurs with 20 points, six rebounds, six assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer on Monday.
Fox's speed was too much for the Spurs sans Derrick White to handle and it showed. He almost had a perfect day from the field and was still able to get owners a triple-one.

De'Aaron Fox returned to Saturday's game after getting poked in the eye, finishing with 19 points on 5-of-14 shooting (8-of-9 FTs), three boards, eight assists, three steals and a trey in the Kings' win over the Sixers.
Fox had a nice game in this one, playing with physicality and helping to direct his team through the fourth quarter in what was a nice execution win. There are no signs the eye injury will have any impact going forward.

De'Aaron Fox (eye/head) went back into the locker room on Saturday after taking a shot from Nemanja Bjelica.
Hopefully the friendly fire doesn't keep Fox out for any length of time. We'll keep you updated on his condition but it'll be on Yogi Ferrell and Frank Mason to run the point while Fox is getting checked out.

De'Aaron Fox (left big toe soreness) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game.
Fox will get the night off after he looked a little below standards on Monday. With the Kings on a back-to-back, it's a sensible spot to get him some extra rest and recovery time. Yogi Ferrell and Frank Mason will step up in the traditional point guard spot but Bogdan Bogdanovic will also see more playmaking opportunities tonight.

De'Aaron Fox (left big toe soreness) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Raptors.
The Kings played yesterday and the Raptors will be without three rotation mainstays, including Kawhi Leonard, so it might be a nice opportunity to sit Fox and let him recover from a nagging issue. Yogi Ferrell, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Frank Mason stand to benefit if Fox misses time.

De'Aaron Fox double-doubled against the Pistons on Saturday with 14 points, 10 assists, six rebounds, a steal and a triple.
Buddy Hield was the star of the show tonight but Fox played a big part in the victory as well. He shot only 3-of-14 from the field but maintains a 46.6 field goal percentage for the year and holds top-50 standard league value. He, along with Hield, is a contender for the Most Improve Player award.

De'Aaron Fox led the Kings to a 115-107 win on Monday over the Blazers with 16 points, nine assists, a 3-pointer and two steals.
He went 3-for-11 from the field which is an anomaly for him this season. Fox has learned to use his speed to his advantage and his accelerated growth in the decision-making department is doing wonders for the Kings franchise. He's in the top-50 on the season and will likely finish there as the future is burning bright for him and the Kings.

De'Aaron Fox scored 21 points on 6-of-15 shooting (1-of-4 3PTs, 8-of-9 FTs) with seven rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block in the Kings' 104-97 win over the Hornets on Saturday.
Fox looked great and was really taking it to Kemba Walker, and if he can get the free throws figured out like he did tonight then his value goes to a whole other level. He's sitting on an early round season as his star continues to rise in Sacramento. Willie Cauley-Stein added 12 & 12 with four assists, two steals and a block in the win.

De'Aaron Fox led the Kings to a 112-102 win over the Pistons on Thursday with 12 points, five rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block.
The triple-one and efficient shooting top off a great line and his impact on the court was even greater in reality. Fox is emerging as one of the best young players in the league and the only blemish on his game was the 1-for-4 mark at the line.
