The Sacramento Kings will be without Marvin Bagley III for the remainder of the season after an MRI revealed a lateral right foot sprain.

The second-year forward out of Duke was hurt during an intrasquad scrimmage on Sunday, landing on a teammate's foot after going up for a rebound.

The team says he is expected to make a full recovery.

Bagley was averaging 14.2 points and 7.5 rebounds this season, but he has struggled to stay healthy, appearing in only 13 games.

The Kings are already without guard De'Aaron Fox, who is dealing with a left ankle sprain suffered last week. Buddy Hield, Harrison Barnes, Jabari Parker and Alex Len all tested positive for COVID-19 before training camp. A fifth player, center Richaun Holmes, inadvertently left the campus perimeter last week in Orlando, Florida, and had to go back into quarantine for 10 days.

After going 7-3 in its last 10 games before the March hiatus, Sacramento is 3 games back of the Memphis Grizzlies for the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference.

The Kings play their first of three scrimmages Wednesday against the Miami Heat. They play their first of eight "seeding" games July 31 against the San Antonio Spurs.
