Sacramento Kings guard De’Aaron Fox is expected to return to action next week, after missing 16 games, due to an ankle injury.

Per James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area, Fox is targeting to play against the Charlotte Hornets on Tuesday. Alternatively, his return to action will take place next Saturday against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Fox sustained an ankle injury during practice on November 11 and has been out of action since then.
