A former basketballer is coming to Mom.

Retired Los Angeles Laker Rick Fox will guest star on an upcoming episode of CBS’ sophomore comedy, which stars Anna Faris as struggling single mother Christy and Emmy winner Allison Janney as her vitriolic mother, Bonnie.

Fox will play Dr. James Kendall, the handsome doctor who’s married to Jill (recurring star Jaime Pressly), the newly sober woman whom Christy is sponsoring. The wealthy doc is no longer willing to put up with his wife’s erratic behavior and addiction issues.

Mom returns for its second season on Sept. 29 at 8:30 p.m. on CBS.
