Against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday, Sacramento Kings guard De'Aaron Fox left the game with back spasms.

Below is the play where Fox suffered the injury. After biting on the shot fake in the first quarter, Fox landed a bit awkwardly. As he headed to the locker room, Fox was grimacing in pain.

This is yet another set back for the speedy third-year guard. To recall, Fox sprained his ankle in November and subsequently missed significant time.

Fox, the fifth overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, is putting up 18.8 points, 6.7 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals across 31.4 minutes per game. He has certainly beefed up his numbers in his third year in the league. The only setback this year is that the 22-year-old has been hit by the injury bug.

Time will only tell if he's set to miss some games again. In the meantime, Kings fans should expect Cory Joseph and Yogi Ferrell to fill in the void. Buddy Hield and Bogdan Bogdanovic might also play more of a facilitator role, on top of carrying much of the scoring chores for the Luke Walton-led squad.

The Kings have done fairly well this season. As of writing, they have a 12-18 record for 12th in the West. There's still a ton of season left and the franchise is looking to qualify for the postseason for the first time since the 2005-06 season.
