Alexander Vezenkov will be sidelined for the next few weeks with another ankle injury, basketball expert Chris Biderman reports. The Bulgarian basketball player missed seven games for the Sacramento Kings in late January and early February due to a sprained ankle, and now he has resumed his injury. He returned to action in the loss to the Detroit Pistons and then logged nearly 16 minutes in the win over the champion Denver Nuggets, but is back on the sidelines.
At the moment, it is not clear how much time Vezenkov will need to recover, but most likely he will not play until the end of the month.
In his absence, the Sacramento Kings lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 113:127 on the road. Shay-Gilgus Alexander and Jaylen Williams combined for 70 points for the Thunder, and Lugenz Dort added 17 points and 9 rebounds. For Sacramento, center Domantas Sabonis had another triple-double - 21 points, 14 assists, and 11 rebounds, and Malik Monk scored 26 points off the bench.
The Sacramento Kings are in seventh place in the West with 30 wins and 22 losses, while Oklahoma City is in third place with a 36-17 record.
In the other game last night, the Boston Celtics defeated the Miami Heat 110:106 away. /BGNES
