Marvin Bagley

Sacramento Kings forward Marvin Bagley III has been cleared to resume full-contact basketball activities.

Bagley, who fractured his right thumb in the season-opening game against the Phoenix Suns on October 23, will be listed as day-to-day, according to the club.

There is not yet a projected return date for Bagley, the promising second-year pro who recorded 14 points and 10 rebounds in the opening contest.

Bagley was projected to miss four to six weeks when he suffered the injury.
