Top Sasha Vezenkov News

  • 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.

  • Kings' Sasha Vezenkov: Downgraded to out

    Vezenkov will miss a fifth straight game due to a right ankle sprain, which shouldn't be surprising given he was initally deemed week-to-week.

  • Kings' Sasha Vezenkov: Out at least one week

    Vezenkov was diagnosed with a moderate right ankle sprain Wednesday and will be re-evaluated in 7-to-14 days, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Vezenkov suffered the ankle sprain during Monday's win over Atlanta but was cleared to return, though he finished with only six minutes played. Over his last five appearances, he's averaged 10.0 minutes per game, so his absence shouldn't have a major ripple effect, though Chris Duarte and Trey Lyles are candidates for a few extra minutes off the bench until Vezenkov returns.
