  • Kings' Sasha Vezenkov: Scores five points in return

    Vezenkov (ankle) tallied five points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt), two rebounds, two steals and one assist across 10 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 127-106 win over Utah.

    The Kings will be without Malik Monk (knee) for the rest of the regular season, but the returns of Vezenkov and Trey Lyles (knee) from 22- and nine-game absences, respectively, helped fortify the Sacramento bench. The rookie from Cyprus turned in a useful all-around line during his time on the court, but Vezenkov is unlikely to see his role grow substantially over the final two weeks of the regular season unless Sacramento elects to scale back the minutes of starting forwards Harrison Barnes and Keegan Murray.

  • Kings' Sasha Vezenkov: Back in action

    Vezenkov (ankle) is available for Sunday's game against the Jazz, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    Vezenkov will make his return to the lineup Sunday after missing the last 22 games with an ankle injury. His return comes at a great time for Sacramento, who recently lost Malik Monk (knee) and Kevin Huerter (shoulder) to injury. Vezenkov could find his way into a substantial role with plenty of minutes suddenly available in the Kings' regular rotation.

    Vezenkov (ankle) will not play Friday against the Mavericks.

  • Kings' Sasha Vezenkov: Fully participates in practice

    Vezenkov (ankle), who is questionable for Friday's game against the Mavericks, fully participated in the Kings' morning practice session, Jake Gadon of CBS Sacramento reports.

    Vezenkov hasn't suited up since early February but has been ramping up in recent days. His full participation in practice is encouraging, but the Kings will likely wait to see how he feels afterward before determining his status. If he's cleared to play, Vezenkov could face a minutes restriction following his lengthy absence.

  • Kings' Sasha Vezenkov: Questionable against Washington

    Vezenkov (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game versus the Wizards.

  • Kings' Sasha Vezenkov: Ascends to questionable

    Vezenkov (ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against Toronto.

    Vezenkov has been sidelined for nearly six weeks due to a right ankle sprain, but a return appears imminent for the 28-year-old. When ultimately cleared, Vezenkov could be a candidate to help fill the potential void of Kevin Huerter (shoulder) if the latter misses extended time after being injured in Monday's win over Memphis. Vezenkov is averaging just 5.6 points and 2.5 rebounds in 12.6 minutes across 35 appearances this season, but he is knocking down 38.0 percent of 2.9 threes per game.

  • Kings' Sasha Vezenkov: Full go at shootaround

    Vezenkov (ankle), who remains out for Monday's game against the Grizzlies, was a full participant during the Kings' morning shootaround, Sean Cunningham of Fox 40 Sacramento reports.

    Vezenkov hasn't played since Feb. 9 and has missed 28 of Sacramento's last 37 games while dealing with a lingering ankle issue. Shootarounds aren't normally very intense, so the reigning EuroLeague MVP probably still has a few hurdles to clear before getting cleared for game action. Vezenkov's role was minor before his absence, but the Kings may look to get him more involved with Trey Lyles (knee) injured and Kevin Huerter struggling.

  • Kings' Sasha Vezenkov: Re-evaluated in 4-to-6 weeks

    The Kings announced Tuesday that Vezenkov has been diagnosed with a Grade 3 right ankle sprain and will be re-evaluated in 4-to-6 weeks, Deuce Mason of NBC Sports California reports.

    Vezenkov recently missed seven straight games after spraining the same ankle, but the sprain he suffered during Saturday's practice appears to be far more significant. The Kings will check back in with Vezenkov in mid-to-late March, and if he heals as anticipated, he could be able to make a few appearances before the regular season comes to a close. The rookie forward has held a minor role off the Sacramento bench this season, averaging 5.6 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.1 three-pointers in 12.6 minutes per contest over 35 outings.

  • Kings' Sasha Vezenkov: Facing multi-week absence

    Vezenkov is expected to be sidelined for multiple weeks while tending to a recurring right ankle sprain, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Vezenkov initially sprained the ankle in the Kings' Jan. 22 win over Atlanta, resulting in him missing seven games before he returned to action 16 days later. After making his second appearance since suffering the injury in Friday's 135-106 win over the Nuggets, Vezenkov aggravated the ankle sprain in Saturday's practice, per Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee. The Kings will likely have an update on Vezenkov's status coming out of the All-Star break, but his absence will create a minor hole in the rotation. Alex Len and Kessler Edwards look to be the primary candidates to step into the rotation in Vezenkov's absence, while Trey Lyles could also see an expanded role as the top backup at both frontcourt spots.

  • Kings' Sasha Vezenkov: Won't play Sunday

    Vezenkov is out for Sunday's game against Oklahoma City due to a right ankle sprain.

    After a seven-game absence due to the same injury, Vezenkov appeared in both of the Kings' last two contests, playing 22 total minutes. Given that the Kings are classifying his injury as a right ankle sprain rather than injury management, it's possible that Vezenkov suffered a setback or aggravation during his most recent appearance in Saturday's 135-106 win over Denver. Alex Len or Kessler Edwards look to be the most likely candidates to take Vezenkov's spot in head coach Mike Brown's rotation.
