Huerter was scoreless in six minutes of Thursday’s eventual 101-96 road win against the Brooklyn Nets. He left the game with the injury after limping following a missed shot in the first quarter.
The victory assured the Kings of their first winning season since 2005-06 as they inch closer to their first playoff berth since that season.
Aside from leading the Kings in 3-pointers made (180), Huerter ranks fourth on the team this season in scoring (15.0 ppg) and is averaging 3.2 rpg, 2.9 apg and 1.1 spg as well. He is shooting a career-best both overall (48.7%) and from 3-point range (40.8%) in 2022-23, his first with the Kings after arriving via an offseason trade with the Atlanta Hawks.
