Darren Collison should be a fantasy value again

Sponsored post This is a sponsored post by FanDuel. Lots of people enjoy daily fantasy sites. It's ok if you don't. This is for people that do. Darren Collison has been a little slow as he returns from injury. After missing 5 games, Collison has had three below average performances, at least based on what we've come to expect from Collison. His points and assists have been below his season averages. I'm not concerned about Collison long term, as he looks to be a great fit for Karl's offense. However, I'm holding Collison out of my FanDuel lineups until I see he's back to his usual ways. And...

Kings 97, Magic 91: Third-quarter run nets Kings first road win

It wasn't the prettiest win the Kings could have had, and it was highlighted with inconsistency on both ends of the court, but Saturday's 97-91 win against the Orlando Magic was a welcome sight for a Sacramento squad desperate for their first road win. DeMarcus Cousins returned after his one-game suspension to lead the team with 29 points, 12 rebounds and six assists, and Rajon Rondo added 13 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. Tobias Harris led the Magic with 24 points, and Evan Fournier had 17 points but shot just 7-20 from the field. Even with Rudy Gay sidelined with a shoulder...

Kings vs. Magic: Can Sacramento finally win on the road?

The Kings are above .500 with a healthy DeMarcus Cousins but they have yet to win on the road either way.  After starting this five-game road trip 0-2, the Kings desperately need a win.  Today's action tips off at 2:00 pm on CSN California and on KHTK 1140. 3 Questions 1. Who will step up in Rudy Gay's absence?  Gay left Thursday's game with a shoulder strain and that's a big part of Sacramento's offense gone.  Last time Gay was out, Karl chose to start Caron Butler.  Omri Casspi is a far better player at this point in his career, but I think Karl likes Casspi's energy off the bench....

Kings vs. Hawks Preview: Kings look to carry momentum on the road

The Kings managed to put together three good wins in a row but their newfound chemistry will now be tested on the road.  Sacramento starts a season-long road trip today in Atlanta.  In good news, the Kings will likely be getting back Darren Collison for the first time in five games. Today's action tips off at 5:00 pm on CSN California and on KHTK 1140. 3 QUESTIONS 1. Will the Kings be able to guard the three point line?  The Hawks are one of the most prolific three point shooting teams in the league with almost everyone on their roster capable of hitting a three.  Statistically, the...

Rudy Gay has stomach flu, unlikely to play against Brooklyn Nets

The Kings can't seem to catch a break.  Darren Collison remains out with a hamstring injury and now it appears the Kings have also lost Rudy Gay for tonight's game, as he's suffering from a bout of gastroenteritis, a.k.a. stomach flu. Rudy posted the above image to his Snapchat earlier today, and the Kings confirmed his illness shortly there after, listing him as doubtful to play.  In Gay's place we'll likely see Omri Casspi get his first start of the season.  Casspi has played well so far this season, averaging a career-high 10.7 points (52.9% from the field and 57.1% from three) and...

Darren Collison listed as day-to-day with a strained hamstring

The hits keep on coming for the Sacramento Kings.  After losing DeMarcus Cousins for four and a half games to a strained Achilles, the Kings announced last night that an MRI performed on Darren Collison revealed a strained hamstring.  Collison missed Saturday's game against the Golden State Warriors and will miss Monday's game against the San Antonio Spurs as well.  He will be listed as day-to-day after that. Collison is Sacramento's third leading scorer, averaging 15.8 points and 5.2 assists off the bench this year, so his loss is a big one for this team.  Fortunately, it sounds like...
