Sacramento Kings forward Marvin Bagley III will remain sidelined indefinitely because of a left foot sprain.

The Kings announced Thursday that 2018's No. 2 pick will be reevaluated in three weeks. The club noted he "continues to progress through the reconditioning process" and "recently incorporated stationary shooting and partial-weight bearing conditioning activities." 

Bagley suffered the sprain during the Kings' 105-104 loss to Minnesota on Dec. 26. The 20-year-old missed eight games before he returned Jan. 13. The injury lingered, though, and he has not appeared in a game since Jan. 20.

The Duke product has only appeared in 13 contests for the 21-33 Kings this season. However, durability was not as persistent an issue during his rookie campaign. Bagley played 62 games last season.

In 2019-20, he is averaging 14.2 points and 7.5 rebounds in 25.7 minutes per contest.
