De'Aaron Fox Responds To News Of Lonzo Ball Missing Tonight's Rematch

The Lakers' point guard won't be playing tonight.

We were supposed to get a Lonzo Ball-De'Aaron Fox rematch tonight. The former UCLA and Kentucky stars went at it in the NCAA Tournament and were taken No. 2 and No. 5 overall, respectively, in the NBA Draft.

Ball's Lakers are set to face off against Fox's Kings in the Las Vegas Summer League tonight.

Los Angeles' rookie won't be playing, though.

USA TODAY's Sam Amick first reported that the Lakers are choosing to rest Ball, as he's dealing with a sore quad.

Amick's report has since been confirmed by many others.

Fox reacted to the news on Twitter, but then deleted his tweet.

Here it is:

We'll have to wait until the regular season to watch these two square off.
