Malik Monk suffers right knee injury, could miss significant time

0 8
It was a painful Friday night for the Sacramento Kings. In the first half of their consequential 107-103 home loss to the Dallas Mavericks, Luka Dončić tumbled after a drive and fell onto the right knee of Malik Monk. Monk left the game and didn’t return. It is feared he suffered a sprained MCL, league sources told The Athletic.

This loss was a gut punch, no doubt. Where do the Kings go from here?
Monk injured, Huerter out for the season and a tough schedule is ahead.
We try to make sense of it all on the podcast:

Although we weren’t able to chat with him, Malik Monk looked to be in good spirits in the Kings locker room after the game. He was able to walk under his own power despite a slight limp. – 1:34 AM

Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
Davion Mitchell & Kessler Edwards have done a fantastic job replacing Malik Monk’s energy and production off the bench tonight, but man could the Kings use #0 right now. – 12:16 AM

As great as the Kings have played, their lead is only 5. Without Monk the rest of the way, Sacramento still has a lot of work to do to secure this important win. – 11:23 PM
