The restart woes continue for the Sacramento Kings, who announced Wednesday that leading scorer De'Aaron Fox will be sidelined for at least a week after spraining his left ankle in practice.

Fox will be re-evaluated in seven to 10 days, according to the team.

Four Kings players tested positive for COVID-19, and starting center Richaun Holmes was sent back into the quarantine protocol after inadvertently leaving the protection of the bubble at the Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando.

In addition to his team-leading 20.4 points per game, Fox also leads the team in assists (6.8 per game) and steals (1.4 per game).

Kings players Buddy Hield, Harrison Barnes, Jabari Parker and Alex Len all tested positive for the coronavirus prior to the team heading to central Florida.

The Kings (27-36) are 3 1/2 games behind the Memphis Grizzlies (32-33) for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference. Sacramento's first game of the restarted season will be July 31 against the San Antonio Spurs.
