Fox was looking forward to another showdown with Lonzo.
Lonzo Ball will miss tonight's game against the Sacramento Kings due to a sore groin.
Considering it's Summer League this shouldn't be a big deal, but because it was being billed as the Lonzo vs De'Aaron Fox rematch, it has become a noteworthy story.
Immediately after word got out, De'Aaron Fox sent out a simple *face palm* emoji which was clearly in reference to Lonzo missing tonight's "rematch" from the NCAA Tournament. In case you forgot, Fox went off for 39 points in a win over Lonzo's UCLA Bruins and later said that he went out there to "shut LaVar Ball up."
We'll have plenty of opportunities to watch Lonzo and Fox go head to head during the regular season, especially since their playing in the same division, but unfortunately it won't be tonight.
