More on Marvin Bagley Injury

Sam Amick: Source says the Kings’ Marvin Bagley is targeting a return to play sometime next week. The Kings play Golden State Sunday, Dallas Monday, Utah Wednesday and Lakers Friday. The team just announced that his fourth metacarpal injury is healed.
Jason Anderson: I'm told Kings F Marvin Bagley III is away from the team as he recovers from his hand injury, but he is progressing well and in regular communication with the team. There will be an update on his status at the 4-week mark and he will rejoin the team at the appropriate time.
Dave Mason: Marvin Bagley III is questionable tonight with left calf soreness. DaQuan Jeffries also questionable for tonight against Orlando.
Sean Cunningham: Kings F/C Marvin Bagley III, who is out for the season, has left the Orlando bubble. No substitute player is allowed due to injury, Walton says.
Sam Amick: The injury is expected to keep him in a boot for at least two weeks, sources say. Even in a best-case scenario, the Kings determined that it didn't make sense to force him back into action from there.
Sean Cunningham: Kings coach Luke Walton said he does not have an update on Marvin Bagley III. Said he came down on someone's foot while grabbing a rebound. No update from the MRI.
Jason Jones: Kings coach Luke Walton just held a conference call with media. Some key points: 1. "Marvin is doing great. He's feeling much better." 2. Luke is focused on current roster/possiblitiy of return of the season and front office is monitoring draft. 3. Yes, Luke has seen Tiger King
Jason Anderson: No sign of Marvin Bagley III on the injury report for Kings vs. Heat. Kings: PROBABLE – Nemanja Bjelica (ankle). OUT – Richaun Holmes (shoulder).
James Ham: From the team: Sacramento Kings forward Marvin Bagley III will be out for the next few games with a midfoot sprain to his left foot. Updates will be provided as appropriate.
He has to be frustrated seeing second-year players such as Luka Doncic (a legitimate league MVP candidate) and Trae Young (a legitimate All-Star candidate) receive praise while he’s missed Sacramento’s past 20 games after breaking his right thumb in the season opener Oct. 23 at Phoenix. This has to weigh heavily on Bagley’s mind, right? If it does, Bagley is adept at not letting it show. “It’s not tough for me,” Bagley said. “I want to play bad, but at the same time, my body is important. I can’t afford to come back and have something else hurt and miss some more time. I’ve got to make sure the body feels great, everything’s back, I’ve got to take care of my body, continue to push. I’m almost there.”
“The bone is healing and everything is feeling good on that part,” Bagley said. “As far as the strength in my hand, it’s not where I want it to be yet. I’m getting there, day-by-day, just doing what the team wants me doing, strengthening it, exercises on it with playdough, this thumb (tool) that I use to test the strength in it. So I’m getting there. I’m going in the right direction, I’m almost there. It’s around the corner for me, I think it’s around the corner. It’s hard to say when, but I’ll be back soon.”
Jason Jones: Bagley said he’s getting closer to playing, but won’t rush back if his body isn’t right. The broken in his thumb is healed, now he’s focused on regaining full strength in his hand.
Following his six-week evaluation by the team’s medical staff today, Kings forward Marvin Bagley III (right thumb fracture) has been cleared to resume full-contact basketball activities. Bagley will be listed as day-to-day moving forward and his return to game action will be updated as appropriate.
Kings forward Marvin Bagley III is ramping up individual workouts and nearing a return after missing the past month with a broken thumb, but coach Luke Walton said he hasn’t determined how he will use Bagley when he gets back. Walton said Bagley is scheduled to be reevaluated Wednesday and will accompany the team on a four-game East Coast road trip. Bagley has been out since suffering a non-displaced fracture of his right thumb in the team’s season opener against the Phoenix Suns.
James Ham: Marvin Bagley said there is still no timetable for his return, but he's putting in work while recovering from a broken right thumb. Wednesday will be the 3 week mark of a 4-6 week injury window. Sounds like he's still 2 weeks out.
Jason Jones: Luke Walton said Nemanja Bjelica is likely to replace Bagley in the starting lineup, but there is no final decision. Injury occurred in the fourth quarter last night. De’Aaron Fox (ankle) practiced, Buddy Hield (ankle) did not practice and is day-to-day.
James Ham: From Kings: Marvin Bagley III is questionable tonight at San Antonio with a stomach illness and Harry Giles is out with a left thigh contusion.
It’s not yet known when rookie forward Marvin Bagley III could return to the court, but it won’t happen Monday when the Kings play the Washington Wizards at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. Bagley has been ruled out for the second stop on Sacramento’s four-game East Coast trip, but he will be listed as day-to-day going forward, the team announced.
Jason Anderson: Marvin Bagley’s MRI will take place sometime this morning. Good chance it’s just a sprain. Bagley seemed to be in good spirits after the game last night (maybe even relieved) and I can’t imagine the medical staff would have let him walk around if they feared a torn ligament.

James Ham: We’ll have an official update tomorrow on Marvin Bagley. Spoke to him in the locker room. He is feeling better, but likely needs more time. Bone bruise is not an easy one to nail down. Kings will take cautious approach with the 19-year-old.
James Ham: Kings injury report For tonight vs. Lakers Marvin Bagley III-OUT (left knee bone bruise)
An MRI taken this evening on Sacramento Kings forward Marvin Bagley III revealed a left knee bone bruise. The rookie out of Duke left the game during second quarter action against the Golden State Warriors and did not return. He will be reevaluated in 10 to 14 days and an update will be provided at that time.
Kayte Christensen: Marvin Bagley III (went down 11:30 2Q) will not return to the game. He has sustained a sprained left knee according to Kings PR. Safe to say he will undergo an MRI as soon as possible.
Jason Anderson: The @Sacramento Kings announce @Marvin Bagley will not play again tonight against the @Phoenix Suns due to back spasms. A precautionary MRI yesterday revealed nothing of concern. He is listed as day-to-day.
James Ham: Marvin Bagley (back spasms) did not practice today. The Kings will update his status tomorrow.
Jason Anderson: UPDATE: @Marvin Bagley will not play tonight when the @Sacramento Kings host the @Indiana Pacers due to back spasms.

Will Hardy considered as the leading candidate for Jazz head coaching job

The Utah Jazz may be in the midst of the widest coaching search in recent NBA memory. In all, according to reports, they’ve interviewed at least 15 candidates for the job once held by Quin Snyder. But three weeks into the process, it looks like the team’s decision-makers are favoring the younger assistant coaches in their search for a new leader. In particular, it’s Celtics’ assistant Will Hardy that is considered by many league insiders to be a leading candidate at this point.
