De'Aaron Fox doubtful for Game 5 with broken finger

Kings All-Star De'Aaron Fox fractured finger in shooting hand in Game 4 vs. Warriors

Sacramento Kings All-Star De'Aaron Fox has a fractured finger in his shooting hand, The Athletic's Shams Charania reported.

Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the fracture is to the tip of Fox's left index finger. Fox is considered doubtful for Game 5 on Wednesday, but hasn't been ruled out.

Fox sustained the injury during Sunday's Game 4 that Golden State won to tie the series at 2-2. He's believed to have suffered it in the fourth quarter.

Fox scored 38 points in the game, including 12 in the fourth. He hit a deep pull-up 3 to cut Golden State's lead to one point in the game's final 30 seconds that presumably took place after he sustained the injury.

While it's not clear exactly when Fox sustained the injury, he was seen clutching his left hand after contact on a drive with 4:35 remaining in the fourth quarter. He drew a foul on Jordan Poole on the drive then appeared to draw contact to his left hand from Golden State center Kevon Looney.
