Sacramento Kings’ forward Trey Lyles has received the green light to recommence basketball activities following a re-evaluation of his left calf strain.
The 28-year-old is currently undergoing the reconditioning process, and the timing of his return to play hinges on his progress, with no specific timeframe provided, according to Sean Cunningham of Fox 40.
This 2023-24 season marks Lyles’ second full season with the Kings, having been traded by the Detroit Pistons during the 2021-22 trade deadline.
He has solidified his role as a vital contributor off the bench for the team. In the previous season, he played in 74 games, just one shy of his career-high, averaging nearly 17 minutes per game.
Though Lyles won’t be participating in Wednesday’s game against the Lakers, extending his absence to 10 consecutive matches due to the lingering left calf strain.
However, signs point to his imminent comeback, with the upcoming Friday matchup against the San Antonio Spurs presenting a potential return opportunity.
