The Sacramento Kings will be looking to get back to winning ways on Sunday night when they take on the Milwaukee Bucks at the Fiserv Forum. The Kings are coming off a tough loss against a Joel Embiid-less Philadelphia 76ers side on Friday, 112-93, as they continue to embark on a brutal Eastern Conference road stand.
The good news for the Kings is that they will now get one of their starters back in the mix for the showdown against the Bucks.
Kevin Huerter Cleared to Play Vs. Milwaukee Bucks
Sacramento had to be without Kevin Huerter on Friday against the Sixers after the 6-foot-7 shooting guard was forced to sit out due to injury. Huerter lasted just 41 seconds against the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday after being forced to exit due to a left ankle sprain.
Fortunately for the Kings, Huerter’s absence will only last for one game. This is after the 25-year-old was officially cleared to play against Milwaukee.
After starting 29 games for the Kings to start the season, Huerter was demoted to the second unit in January. However, he got two straight starts prior to the injury. Now that he’s back, the former 19th overall pick is expected to rejoin the starting unit for Sunday’s game, and perhaps beyond.
In 36 appearances this season, Huerter has averaged 9.5 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.5 assists, while also knocking down 1.7 triples per game on a 33.0-percent clip.
