Team news and Injuries
Kings vs Hawks: Collins, Bogdan Bogdanovic (11.7 points per game), Gorgui Deng, Malik Ellison, Onyeka Okongwu, and Del Wright were all in the protocol for the most recent game, and it is unknown when they will return. With an ankle injury, Cam Reddish (12.5 points per game) is questionable. De’Andre Hunter (10.8 points per game) will be out for at least a few games due to a wrist injury. Solomon Hill will miss the rest of the season due to a hamstring injury.
Sacramento rookie center Neemias Queta is currently the only player in health and safety protocols. Terence Davis, who averages 9.5 points per game, is doubtful due to an ankle injury.
Atlanta has been particularly hard hit by COVID and injuries recently, resulting in a 3-7 slide that has the Hawks sitting in 12th place in the Eastern Conference after another loss in Portland on Monday. It was a back-and-forth battle throughout, with Atlanta scoring 40 points in the third quarter to take a 105-100 lead into the fourth before Portland went on an 18-6 run, and while the gap was still only two points in the final minute, the Hawks couldn’t get any stops.
Sacramento is playing some of its best basketball of the season, winning three of its last four games against tough competition to move into tenth place in the Western Conference, and its win over Miami on Sunday was particularly impressive. The Kings took a 26-18 lead after one quarter before Miami fought back to tie it at the end of the third quarter, and De’Aaron Fox’s two free throws with 6.2 seconds left proved decisive after neither team gained much separation down the stretch.
Kings vs Hawks: Head to Head Record
The Kings and the Atlanta Hawks have played 319 regular-season games, with the Kings winning 159 and the Hawks winning 160. The Kings have won four of their last five games against the Hawks.
