De'Aaron Fox (back) considered questionable for Kings on Friday

Vince Carter had 15 points off the bench.

Ultimately, Fox and the Kings aren't in position to contend in the deep Western Conference, so they'll likely be cautious with his recovery.

Jonathon Simmons had 25 points and six assists for Orlando.

Kings: Bogdan Bogdanovic went more than six quarters without scoring before making a 19-foot jumper early in the third quarter. The rookie has now logged over 20 minutes in three of the past four contests, and he could serve as a late-season fantasy surprise if head coach Dave Joerger opts to afford him similar playing time down the stretch.

Garrett Temple scored 23 points on 7 of 10 shooting to help the Sacramento Kings to a 94-88 victory over the visiting Orlando Magic on Friday at Golden 1 Center. Both had lower back strains.

Labissiere suffered a bruised hip while attempting to dunk on a lob pass from Buddy Hield in the first quarter.

It took a little bit for Fox to get adjusted to the National Basketball Association game, but he has made a lot of winning plays so far this year for the Kings. Cauley-Stein missed his fourth straight game with a lower back strain. With Cauley-Stein out and Zach Randolph receiving a veteran's rest day, that left the bulk of the minutes for Koufos. He'd only played in one game with the Kings this season before Friday and most the most of his opportunity as the backup center. Bogdanovic responded with a 3-pointer 12 seconds later and Orlando never made another run until scoring five points in the final 28.3 seconds. He's gone through some growing pains while averaging 11.6 points, 4.3 assists and 2.6 rebounds across 56 appearances.
