Big news!

Marvin Bagley III has been cleared for full contact basketball after being re-evaluated on Thursday, according to the Sacramento Kings. Bagley will be listed as day-to-day.

From the Kings:

Following his six-week evaluation by the team’s medical staff today, Kings forward Marvin Bagley III (right thumb fracture) has been cleared to resume full-contact basketball activities. Bagley will be listed as day-to-day moving forward and his return to game action will be updated as appropriate.

James Ham is reporting Bagley will join the team in San Antonio. The Kings play the Spurs on Friday but it remains to be seen when Bagley will actually return.

Bagley’s return presents a challenge for head coach Luke Walton, but will hopefully provide a boost to a Kings team that has also been dealing with injuries to De’Aaron Fox and Bogdan Bogdanovic.
