De'Aaron Fox (finger) expects to play Wednesday for Kings

Sacramento Kings point guard De'Aaron Fox (finger) said he will “most likely” play on Wednesday against the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 of the Western Conference First Round.

What It Means:

Fox said he would likely miss a week or two if it was the regular season, but he intends to tough it out with the series tied up 2-2. On Tuesday, Fox went through a non-contract practice while wearing a splint to protect his broken finger. Davion Mitchell and Malik Monk figure to be the primary beneficiaries if Fox is out or limited.
