The Sacramento Kings suffered a heartbreaking loss to the Dallas Mavericks last night. After the Kings lost to Luka Doncic and Co., they dropped to the 8 seed in the Western Conference. But that was just one of the concerns for Sacramento. They suffered another devastating blow during yesterday’s game as their star guard Malik Monk injured his knee only 1 minute into the game. According to the latest update, Monk’s regular season is over as he is expected to be out for four to six weeks due to a sprained right MCL.
Not only has Monk’s injury jeopardized the Kings’ chances in the playoffs, but have also threatened his chances to win the 6 Man of the Year award. Monk is having a career year and been the frontrunner to win the trophy all season. He has played 72 games this season. However, according to the new 65-game criteria, only 63 games qualify because of less playing time.
