Injury Status: Active

UPDATE (Apr: 28):

Domantas Sabonis is active on Friday’s match against the Warriors.

UPDATE (Apr: 20):

Domantas Sabonis has been listed as questionable by the Kings due to a bruised sternum, but it appears he will play in Game 3.

Sabonis, who was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice, has been upgraded from questionable to available Thursday with a sternum contusion.

Sabonis is Sacramento’s third-leading scorer in this series (18.0 points per game) and will likely be an even bigger part of the offense now that Draymond Green is out for Game 3.

UPDATE (Apr: 18):

Sabonis underwent sternum X-rays following Monday’s 114-106 victory over the Warriors in Game 2 of the first-round series, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The X-rays came back negative, but Sabonis will be tested again on Tuesday as a precaution.

Sabonis’ ribs and lungs were examined after Draymond Green of the Warriors stomped on him in the fourth quarter of Monday’s game, when Sabonis appeared to either intentionally or inadvertently grab at Green’s ankle while falling to the floor while contesting a rebound.

Green was ejected from the game after receiving a flagrant foul, whereas Sabonis remained in the game and finished with 24 points (8-12 FG, 8-12 FT), nine rebounds, and four assists in 40 minutes.

While Sabonis appears to have avoided injury and should be considered probable for Thursday’s Game 3 matchup, his upcoming tests will provide more clarity on his status.

Domantas Sabonis is being evaluated by doctors to see if he has any injuries after Draymond Green stomped on him in Game 2 of their playoff series against the Warriors.

Green was called for a technical foul midway through the fourth quarter after becoming entangled with Sabonis during a play for a loose ball. Sabonis pushed his right leg out and appeared to stomp hard on the Kings center’s chest after holding Green’s leg.

Sabonis writhed in pain after being struck. Following an investigation, officials issued Dray a Flagrant 2, ejecting him from the competition, while Sabonis received a technical foul for his actions.

Since Game 1, Green and Sabonis have been at odds. In the final seconds of the Warriors’ 124-121 loss, Green appeared to sit on Sabonis in the backcourt to prevent him from playing defense. This, however, appeared to be merely a prelude to a more physical altercation between the two.
