Report: Kings coach Gentry out of COVID protocol; back Sunday


The Kings will have interim head coach Alvin Gentry back for Sunday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Saturday morning, citing league sources.

Gentry missed the Kings' previous five games after testing positive, with assistant coach Doug Christie serving as acting interim head coach in his place.

The Kings have dealt with a number of COVID-19 issues of late, as De'Aaron Fox and Davion Mitchell were among seven players inactive for their last game against the LA Clippers at Golden 1 Center.
