    Marvin Bagley confirmed that he is "ready to go" for the NBA restart in Orlando after rehabbing from a left foot sprain.

    It was previously reported in early July that the Kings' training staff believed that Bagley would be available for game action soon and this report confirms that Bagley will in fact be available for the league resumption. Bagley has yet to live up to the hype of the second overall pick in 2018 as he has only been able to play in 75 out of a possible 146 games (51.3 percent). It is unclear what role Bagley will have in Orlando but it appears that his injury woes are behind him and we will learn more about his ability during the league resumption. Bagley's return would likely cut into the playing time of Nemanja Bjelica, Harry Giles, Jabari Parker and Harrison Barnes.

    The Kings training staff believes that Marvin Bagley (left foot sprain) will be available for game action shortly.

    Bagley hasn't appeared in a game since January. While Bagley would likely have a bench role, his return may cut into the playing time of teammates like Harrison Barnes and Harry Giles.

    The Kings will open their practice facility on Monday, following the NBA's guidelines.

    The guidelines state that a maximum of four players can be in the facility at any point and there is only allowed one player per basket. This could be beneficial for Marvin Bagley (sprained foot) if he is able to work out and further his recovery process. Woj reported that up to six assistant coaches or development staff can be designated to attend team facilities to supervise workouts. Bagley may be able to start working out, but he will likely have to go through 3-on-3 workouts and ramp up to 5-on-5 before being medically cleared, which is not possible under the current guidelines.

    Sacramento Kings' Coach Luke Walton said that Marvin Bagley (sprained foot) "feels much better" and is "excited about playing ball again".

    Walton said that Bagley would need to go through the usual protocol before returning to the court. He said this would included playing 3-on-3, then 5-on-5 and lastly getting clearance from the medical staff. If the Kings do play again this season, Bagley may need a couple weeks to complete this process before being cleared to play.

    A foot specialist confirmed that Marvin Bagley aggravated his left foot sprain and the Kings announced that Bagley will be re-evaluated in three weeks.

    Bagley is without a timetable to return. He's increasingly difficult to hang onto in 12-team leagues that don't have an IR spot. Assuming he's re-evaluated three weeks from today, that gives Bagley about five weeks left in the season — add on the time he'll miss past the re-evaluation and the eventual ramp-up period should he actually return this season, and he might be up to full speed by the time most leagues are wrapping up. Richaun Holmes and Nemanja Bjelica will hold down the frontcourt minutes (when healthy), with extra room opening up for Alex Len, Harry Giles, Harrison Barnes and Jabari Parker.

    Jabari Parker (right shoulder strain) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Bucks.

    Marvin Bagley possibly missing the rest of the reason explains why the Kings made a move on Parker. He's had injury problems throughout his career and it does not look like his role will be big enough to have standard league value even when healthy.

    Marvin Bagley (sprained foot) was unable to give a definitive answer when asked if he would be able to return to the court this season.

    “I’m definitely going to try to come back this year, but that’s too far ahead at this point,” Bagley said. “Honestly, who knows, I'm just going one day at a time with this, I'm trying not to think too far ahead." The team indicated he would be re-evaluated after the all-star break, but it sounds like a rest-of-season shut down isn't totally out of the question. Bagley is an increasingly difficult guy to hold onto for teams without an IR spot.

    Marvin Bagley (sprained foot) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Lakers.

    Bagley's foot is bad enough for the Kings to reconsider trading Dewayne Dedmon. It's rough news for Bagley, but you're stashing him in the IR spot where available.

    Marvin Bagley aggravated his previously sprained left foot and will be re-evaluated in three weeks.

    Terrible news for Bagley, and with Sacramento not near the playoff conversation, one wonders how much he'll play down the stretch of another lost year. He's still very much worth holding onto, but his ROS outlook is getting worse by the day. Dewayne Dedmon and Harry Giles will be the big winners in terms of minutes in the immediate future, but the big winner is Richaun Holmes. Once he returns from his shoulder injury he should go back to being an early-round threat with no Bagley cramping his space.

    Marvin Bagley has been ruled out of Thursday's game with left foot soreness.

    Luke Walton also said that Richaun Holmes (right shoulder strain) will miss Thursday's game against the Clippers, but that both are getting closer to returning. We'd expect Harry Giles to benefit from both absences.

    Marvin Bagley III has officially been ruled out of Friday's game with left foot soreness.

    Bagley III will be on the sidelines once again. We should expect to see Dewayne Dedmon, Trevor Ariza and Nemanja Bjelica to see upticks in minutes and usage in Bagley's absence.

    Marvin Bagley III (left foot soreness) is unlikely to play against the Bulls on Friday.

    This "update" by coach Luke Walton, via an interview, conflicts with a previous report that Bagley was expected to play. We recommend to check closer to shootaround for a more concrete update.

    Marvin Bagley (left foot soreness) is expected to play in Friday's game against the Bulls.

    It looks like Wednesday's absence is just a maintenance day as the Kings take a cautious approach with their young big man. Check back in as the week progresses to confirm Bagley's status, but he looked great on Monday with 15 points and 15 rebounds in 38 minutes.

    Marvin Bagley (left foot soreness) will not play on Wednesday.

    The Kings are being careful to ease him back. The good news is that Bagley looked excellent on Monday, posting 15 points and 15 rebounds. Nemanja Bjelica should see a boost in usage.

    Marvin Bagley started on Monday and posted a symmetrical double-double along the lines of 15 points and 15 boards to go with two assists and a steal.

    Bagley played 38 minutes in a start and has been playing well since returning from his injury. The King have always been determined to make Bagley a part of their future plans so there was never a real concern about his minutes as they were always going to bump up. Now that he has a launching pad provided by Walton, we'll see if he can take off with it.
