Sacramento Kings point guard Ty Lawson (ankle) said he will play on Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies. What It Means: The Kings wanted to see how Lawson looked in warmups, and it sounds like all went well. Garrett Temple should still carry value in standard leagues as Rudy Gay's (Achilles) injury opens up plenty of time in the rotation. numberFire's models expect Temple to play 33.4 minutes on Friday night while projecting him to record 10.0 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.6 3-pointers.

Kings Trade Rumors: McLemore and Afflalo most likely to be traded

Kings Trade Rumors: McLemore and Afflalo most likely to be traded

Shooting guards are the latest rumor topics Before his devastating achilles injury, Rudy Gay was the Sacramento Kings player most likely to be traded before the deadline. With Gay firmly removed from any trade discussion, Kings fans are left searching for clues as to what the team will do next. Enter ESPN’s Marc Stein: Given Gay's long-term unavailability and Sacramento's well-known hopes of convincing DeMarcus Cousins to sign for the long term, ‎two wings have emerged as the most likely Kings to be dealt: Ben McLemore first and foremost, followed by Arron Afflalo. Neither name is...

Kings vs Grizzlies Preview: Welcome to the First Game of the Rest of the Season

After the disappearance of The Great Rudini, the Kings will need to pull a rabbit out of the hat in order to beat his former team, the Memphis Grizzlies. Wednesday’s game against the Pacers was rough. With no fewer than six articles on Sactown Royalty since then highlighting just how deep into the darkest timeline we really are, I have a hard time adding to the pile. Everything that can be said, has been said and by writers far more interesting. As this is my preview (till Akis reads this), I’m just going to take a brief second to talk about Rudy Gay. Rudy Gay for many years was my...

Rudy Gay will miss the rest of the Kings' season with a ruptured Achilles

Sacramento Kings forward Rudy Gay suffered a full rupture of his left Achilles tendon and will miss the rest of the season. What It Means: Terrible blow for Gay as he will undergo surgery in the next few days. The Kings lose their second-best scorer and most valuable trade piece as they try to compete for the final playoff spot in the West. Garrett Temple and Matt Barnes will receive the biggest bump in fantasy value with Gay sidelined. Temple gained the most during Gay's 11 game absence earlier this season. Gay was averaging 18.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 2.8 assists in 30...

Morning Conversation: On Rudy Gay, and where the Kings go from here

Rudy Gay’s injury changes so much for the Sacramento Kings. Welcome to ‘Morning Conversation’, a semi-regular, not-so-original thingamajig that I’m going to try and put together every non-gameday weekday morning, time and life permitting. There are aspects of the Sacramento Kings worth discussing that rarely get discussed, but may not warrant a full-blown post. As a Kings fan living outside of Sacramento, I’m pretty isolated. Nobody in Boston wants to hear about my fleeting Kings thoughts, but maybe you do? What now? I don’t know where you’d rank Rudy Gay’s now torn...

Processing the Rudy Gay injury

Processing the Rudy Gay injury

Dealing with the ramifications of Rudy going down I’m still processing the Rudy Gay injury from Wednesday night’s game, so apologies in advance if my thoughts are a bit scattered. I’ll do my best to be coherent, but man this is just a crushing blow. There’s a lot to deal with when a team suffers an injury like Rudy’s, so let’s unpack it all. Rudy Gay the person God what a crushing blow. No matter your opinions on his play, you’ll struggle to find anyone willing to speak ill of Rudy Gay as a person. You could hear it in the postgame interviews with teammates, Rudy is a...
