Sacramento Kings guards Darren Collison, Ben McLemore and Arron Afflalo are all available for trade as the deadline approaches, per Chris Mannix of The Vertical. What It Means: This news comes after the Kings traded away DeMarcus Cousins last night, and it looks like they're ready to blow things up completely and look to build for the future. Collison is by far the biggest name on this list, and with the 29-year-old playing on the last year of his contract, the Kings have little incentive to keep him around right now. If Collison does get traded, look for Ty Lawson to play a big...

Sacramento Kings point guard Ty Lawson (groin) has been ruled out against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday. What It Means: Lawson's absence creates a great opportunity for Darren Collison Wednesday night. Collison should be owned across the board. Without yet accounting for Lawson's absence, numberFire's models expect Collison to record 13.9 points, 4.6 assists, 2.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.9 3-pointers across 32.5 minutes.

Malachi Richardson out 4-6 weeks with a torn hamstring

The Kings suffer another big injury to their backcourt. The Sacramento Kings announced Thursday that rookie shooting guard Malachi Richardson will miss 4-6 weeks after suffering a partial tear of his right hamstring. Richardson was injured with about a minute remaining in Wednesday’s blowout loss to the Golden State Warriors. Malachi joins a long list of injured Kings alongside Rudy Gay, Omri Casspi, Garrett Temple, and Ty Lawson. The Kings have been playing without a backup point guard lately, with Arron Afflalo filling in when Darren Collison is on the bench. Afflalo, meanwhile, is...

Ty Lawson won't play Tuesday night for the Kings

Sacramento Kings point guard Ty Lawson (adductor) will not play on Tuesday versus the Los Angeles Lakers. What It Means: Lawson will now have missed three straight games with the injury and will be questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Golden State Warriors. Darren Collison will get extra run at the point with Lawson out, and Ben McLemore will see more time off the bench as well. Collison has averaged 22.7 points, 3.3 rebounds, 5.7 assists, and 3.0 steals while playing 40.8 minutes in the last three games without Lawson. Source: Rotoworld.com

Kings' Ty Lawson (adductor) will be game-time decision

Sacramento Kings point guard Ty Lawson (adductor) will be a game-time call for Tuesday's matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers. What It Means: Lawson has already missed the past two games, so the Kings may decide to give him some extra rest heading into the All-Star break. If he sits, Ben McLemore would be in line for another start, and could be worth a look as a DFS punt play and 3-point streamer. He's 12-for-20 from deep (60.0 percent) over his last three games. During that three-game stretch, McLemore is averaging 16.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.7 steals and 4.0...

Ty Lawson (adductor) questionable for the Kings on Tuesday

Sacramento Kings point guard Ty Lawson (adductor) is questionable to suit up against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday. What It Means: Lawson has missed two games with the injury so far, and we'll have a better idea of his availability after the Kings' shootaround on Tuesday. If he can't go, look for Darren Collison to once again see an increased workload, while Ben McLemore should also see an up-tick in minutes and usage again. If Lawson does play, our models project him for 8.9 points, 2.7 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.0 steals in 24.1 minutes of action on...

Darren Collison hits game-winner for Kings on Friday

Sacramento Kings guard Darren Collison scored 22 points and hit the game-winning layup with 3.5 seconds remaining in Friday's 108-107 win over the Atlanta Hawks. What It Means: Collison played 44 minutes on Friday with Ty Lawson sitting out and he did not disappoint. The Kings were down 22 points at one point in the game and clawed their way back to get their second win in a row and third win in their last four games. Collison should continue seeing big minutes and more shot attempts on offense until Lawson's return. Collison is averaging 13.5 points, 4.0 assists and 2.0...

Kings' Ty Lawson (groin) doubtful against Hawks

Sacramento Kings point guard Ty Lawson (groin) is listed as doubtful to play against the Atlanta Hawks on Friday. What It Means: Lawson is day-to-day with a mild adductor strain, meaning Darren Collison will be plenty busy on Friday night without much behind him. Malachi Richardson could see the biggest boost in minutes while Ben McLemore and Arron Afflalo also see more opportunity. Lawson is averaging 24.6 minutes per game this season and has the sixth-highest usage rate on the team (18.9 percent). His -1.8 nERD is fourth-worst on the Kings. Source:...

Ty Lawson Listed as Day-to-Day after MRI

Kings fans can breathe a sigh of relief as the Kings guard has not suffered a long term injury. Midway through the second quarter of last night’s victory over the Boston Celtics, Ty Lawson went down with a hamstring injury. The Kings backup point guard grabbed the back of his leg and immediately limped to the locker room after an awkward step. He was diagnosed with a strained hamstring, did not return to the game, and an MRI was scheduled for today. The MRI has been completed and he’s been diagnosed with a mild strain of the left Adductor Magnus (which sounds like it should be a spell...

Kings' Ty Lawson day-to-day with mild left adductor strain

Sacramento Kings point guard Ty Lawson received an MRI that revealed a mild strain of his left adductor, and he is listed as day-to-day. What It Means: Lawson was originally believed to be dealing with a hamstring strain, but the MRI revealed otherwise. Darren Collison is going to be plenty busy running the point for Sacramento, and Malachi Richardson figures to replace Lawson as the primary backup. Lawson is averaging 24.6 minutes per game this season and has the sixth-highest usage rate on the team (18.9 percent). His -1.8 nERD is fourth-worst on the Kings. ...

Darren Collison drops 26 points as Kings down Celtics

Sacramento Kings guars Darren Collison led the Kings to an impressive 108-92 win against the Boston Celtics on Wednesday, scoring 26 points on 12-of-21 shooting with two 3-pointers, five assists, one rebound and four steals. What It Means: Collison was forced to lead the offense with Cousins out and he did not disappoint. He also played some great defense on Isaiah Thomas, so he earned this win for the Kings. Ty Lawson went down with injury during the game, so Collison could be looking at more minutes going forward if Lawson misses any time. Collison is averaging 13.4 points,...

Ty Lawson on the Kings: ‘I would like to come back here’

Lawson discusses regaining his confidence. Sacramento Kings guard Ty Lawson came into this season hoping to get his confidence back after a rough 2015-16 campaign that was split between stints with the Houston Rockets and Indiana Pacers. After a slow start to the season, Lawson has seemed to settle into head coach Dave Joerger's system and hit a groove off the bench. He's currently averaging 9.1 points, 4.5 assists, 2.6 rebounds, 1.1 steals and shooting 43 percent from the field in 24 minutes per game. Though still not close to his production in the 2014-15 season with the Denver Nuggets...

Ty Lawson's season-high 22 points not enough as Kings lose to Bulls

Sacramento Kings guard Ty Lawson scored a season-high 22 points in a 112-107 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Monday. What It Means: With Garrett Temple out, Lawson has had to step up for Sacramento and he played 23 or his 35 minutes alongside Darren Collison on Monday. His 23 points were the most he's scored in a game in nearly two years, so while we can't expect a lot of games like this, Lawson will have to play heavy minutes for this shallow Kings backcourt until Temple returns. Lawson is averaging 9.1 points, 2.6 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.1 steals over 24.8 minutes per game...
