Sacramento Kings rookie Davion Mitchell did not play on Friday versus the Memphis Grizzlies after entering the NBA’s health and safety protocols, the team announced.

Mitchell is the latest individual within the Kings organization added to the health and safety protocols, joining De’Aaron Fox, Marvin Bagley III and others. Kings interim head coach Alvin Gentry and several other staff members are also on the list.

Players and coaches entered into the health and safety protocols are required to miss a minimum of 10 days in isolation. However, they can be cleared to play sooner if they return two consecutive negative PCR tests taken at least 24 hours apart.

Mitchell has emerged as one of the top rookies this season, averaging 9.7 points, 3.6 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 29 games. He ranks ninth in scoring among all first-year players and third in assists.

The Kings signed Justin Robinson to a 10-day contract to add depth with so many players out of the lineup. Facing a short-handed lineup, the Kings lost to the Grizzlies, 124-105.
