De'Aaron Fox says he will "likely play" in Game 5 against the Warriors on Wednesday despite fracturing the index finger in his shooting hand according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.
Fox was believed to be "doubtful" for Game 5 but this is a positive sign for the 25-year-old point guard. He reportedly participated in a non-contact practice on Tuesday wearing a splint on his fractured left index finger. The former-Kentucky product is averaging 31.5 points, 7.0 assists, and 6.0 rebounds in 38.5 minutes through the first four games of this first-round series. Fox will likely have to pass pregame tests before getting the official go-ahead for Game 5 so check back prior to tipoff before firing him of in DFS lineups.
