Ridiculous. That would be Fox’s only highlight of the night after he left the game with a bruised back, but it was a good one. The Lakers went on to win 75-69.

He sat out with an ankle sprain, the second time he’s ducked De’Aaron Fox since they entered the league. I’m shocked that ankle didn’t miraculously get better once Fox left the game.
