More Rumors in this Storyline
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.

Bobby Marks: Clint Capela has now met the minutes criteria in his contract. The center has now played 2,000 minutes and is eligible for a $1M bonus if Houston reaches the Western Conf. Finals. Capela also has bonuses for free throw and defensive rebounding % that he is unlikely to reach.
Matt Velazquez: Asked Giannis about him and the team watching Marques Johnson’s jersey retirement. @Eric Nehm followed up by asking him if it made him think about the future. “It’s too far, man. I’ll think about that probably 30, 40 years from now.” I told him it probably won’t take that long.
Rick Bonnell: Jeremy Lamb swishes off the glass from beyond mid-court, at the buzzer, to beat the Raptors in Toronto. As Lamb said, “That was crazy.”
Connor Letourneau: Zaza Pachulia is receiving his championship ring pregame tonight. Nick Young, who is out of the league, plans to stop by a game at some point in the next couple weeks to get his ring. Patrick McCaw had his sent to him.
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said on Sunday that he wants his team to clinch the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference playoffs and secure home-court advantage in the team’s final season at Oracle Arena. But as his group heads into the final 10 regular season games of its season, the overall health of the group will take precedent over any playoff positioning. “Health always comes first,” Kerr said prior to Sunday’s game against the Detroit Pistons. “So each player we look at individually.”
Kerr said the Warriors will play to the end and try to earn the home-court advantage. “The only way that would happen is if we were mathematically out of it,” Kerr said. “And then at that point maybe you make a decision, but it hasn’t even entered my mind. We’re just going for the one seed and trying to stay healthy and do all that at once.”
