No Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, other key Lakers for game vs. Kings

Sacramento Kings: De'Aaron Fox standing out in 2017 NBA Summer League

He was right, outlets ran with the tweet to further hype up the Ball vs. Fox rivalry, but the Kings rookie says it's not that serious. As the news broke, Fox posted an emoji of a man slapping his forehead in dismay. The Lakers have at least two more games and a possible postseason appearance if they win at least one game.

One NBA scout didn't mince words when talking about Lonzo Ball.

While Ball was taken with the second overall pick in the June draft, Fox - who went fifth overall to the Kings - has been candid about his view that he's the best point guard of this 2017 group.

Usually, by Monday night of Summer League, the crowds of fans have started to thin out a little, the people who came to town to see a top pick headed home after the weekend.

Fox, who averaged 17.5 points, 4 assists and 4 steals in his first two games with the Kings in Las Vegas, finished with 12 points in 20 minutes against the Lakers.

One anonymous National Basketball Association scout went so far as to say he'd be "pissed" if Ball sat out the game for his team.

Lakers summer league coach Jud Buechler told the Los Angeles Times that the injured occurred during a practice. Caruso's accurate 3-point shooting and strong defense make him ideal for a role as a backup or third point guard. But it's still fair to wonder whether the matchup played a factor in Ball's decision.

David Nwaba, Alex Caruso, Vander Blue, Travis Wear, and Gabe York, all G-Leaguers, beat some prominent rookies and second-year players on the Sacramento Kings roster including De'Aaron Fox, Justin Jackson, Buddy Held, and Skal Labissiere. Ball, Kuzma and Hart will be re-evaluated Wednesday, with the Lakers not playing Tuesday.

Ball was looking to continue his momentum from Saturday when he compiled his first triple-double with the Lakers for 11 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in an 86-81 loss to Boston. He feels like the media has made a bigger deal of it than it really is and didn't think Ball purposely sat out this game.
