Kings' Marvin Bagley (hand) avoids surgery, out a minimum 4 weeks

Sacramento Kings forward Marvin Bagley will miss at least a month due to a hand fracture.

What It Means:

That's what the team announced Thursday night. Bagley fractured his hand in Monday's game, leading to a Tyrese Haliburton start on Wednesday night. There was concern that Bagley's injury would require a surgical fix, so while that was avoided, he won't be reevaluated for at least 4 weeks. Look for Haliburton to see more minutes if the Kings remain in a small-ball starting lineup. Nemanja Bjelica could also see more minutes off the bench.

In 37 games this season, Bagley has averaged 13.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 25.8 FanDuel points.
