The Sacramento Kings will be without rookie Marvin Bagley III for up two weeks because of an injured left knee, according Shams Charania of Stadium.

The Kings say their fourth-leading scorer, will be reevaluated in one to two weeks after undergoing an MRI exam, which revealed a sprain.

Bagley sustained the injury when he collided with Milwaukee's Malcom Brogdon, who was setting a screen near halfcourt, during the second half of the Bucks' 141-140 overtime victory Wednesday night.

The No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 draft out Duke had a terrific February, averaging 18.4 points and 9.7 rebounds in 30.2 minutes in nine games, getting to the free-throw line for an average of 4.3 makes per game.

For the season, the 19-year-old is averaging 13.9 points, 7.2 boards and 1.0 dimes in 24.8 minutes in 47 games (2 starts), shooting 50.9 percent from the field and 69.7 percent from the charity stripe.
