Fox ruled out of Kings-Bulls game with hamstring tightness

De'Aaron Fox, Kings

Just when the Kings got rookie Tyrese Haliburton back in the lineup, they lost De'Aaron Fox to an injury.

The star point guard left early in the Kings' game against the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night, and soon after was ruled out with right hamstring tightness.

Fox was attended to by a Kings' trainer before heading back to the locker room for further examination.

For a Kings team that is struggling early in the season, losing Fox for any amount of time would be a costly blow.

Speed is a big part of Fox's game, so the Kings will have to be careful with this injury. They don't need this turning into a more serious injury.

Fox finished with three points in five minutes Wednesday night.
