Rudy Gay's sprained ankle didn't limit him on Wednesday, as he notched 22 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks in a team-high 41 minutes vs. the Sixers.
Gay made 9-of-20 shots including a pair of 3-pointers. He's healthy and locked into a reliable role for the Kings, so his owners can feel comfortable that he'll sustain his value after resting up during the All-Star break. Feb 10 - 11:51 PM

Date:

Rudy Gay scored 16 point with seven rebounds, one steal and four 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Cavs on Monday.

His ankle sprain was expected to keep him out, but he looked OK in 27 minutes tonight -- he might have played more if the Kings weren't blown out. Even if the Kings make a coaching change, it shouldn't hurt Gay's fantasy output.
Feb 8 - 10:13 PM

Updating a previous item Rudy Gay (ankle) will start against the Cavs on Monday.

He was not expected to play about an hour ago, but he'll give it a go as the Kings try to save coach George Karl's job. Gay will join Rajon Rondo, Marco Belinelli, Willie Cauley-Stein and DeMarcus Cousins in the first unit. James Anderson will come off the bench.
Feb 8 - 6:22 PM

Updating a previous item, Rudy Gay (ankle) will try to play against the Cavs on Monday.

It sounds like he is going to come off the bench with James Anderson starting over him. Gay did miss Sunday's game and is likely going to be limited for tonight. Start him at your own risk this week.
Feb 8 - 5:50 PM

James Anderson (ankle) is starting for Rudy Gay (ankle) on Monday against the Cavs.

Gay was doubtful and he'll miss his second game due to this ankle issue. He's having a lot of trouble staying healthy this season and should be benched in weekly leagues. Expect Omri Casspi to play more tonight.
Feb 8 - 5:44 PM

Rudy Gay (sprained left ankle) is doubtful to play in Monday's game vs. Cleveland.

Gay didn't play on Sunday due to the injury, so obviously it's more than just a minor sprain. With Gay sidelined, Omri Casspi's minutes should trend up although he's still likely to (inexplicably) come off the bench behind James Anderson. From a statistical perspective, DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo will be the primary fantasy beneficiaries of Gay's absence.

Rudy Gay (ankle) will not play on Sunday vs. the Celtics.

He rolled his ankle during Friday's game and was listed as doubtful for today's contest. With Gay on the shelf, the Kings will likely play less small ball, while Omri Casspi should benefit the most from a fantasy perspective. Gay should be considered day-to-day.
Feb 7 - 11:43 AM

Rudy Gay (ankle) is doubtful to play against the Celtics on Sunday.

He rolled his ankle on Friday and did not return. The Kings will desperately need Gay to help save Karl's job, but that might not happen. If Gay doesn't play, Omri Casspi should get the start and get a chance to rebound from a rough stretch. Darren Collison and Marco Belinelli should also benefit.
Feb 6 - 4:43 PM

Rudy Gay has been diagnosed with a sprained left ankle, and he will be listed as day-to-day moving forward.

X-rays on Gay's left ankle came back negative, and it looks like he'll be questionable for Sacramento's upcoming back-to-back set Sunday vs. Boston and Monday vs. Cleveland. If he's forced into an extended absence, Omri Casspi, Willie Cauley-Stein and Darren Collison will benefit, with Casspi likely returning to the starting five.

Rudy Gay (left ankle) will not return on Friday.

He tweaked his left ankle in the first quarter and tried to play through it, but it just wasn't feeling right for him. Omri Casspi will get a bump in minutes while Willie Cauley-Stein will play more, too. Darren Collison is also playing well tonight. Gay finished with two points, one rebound and one assist.
Feb 5 - 8:22 PM

Rudy Gay exited Friday's game after turning his left ankle and has returned.

Gay walked off under his own power and might be able to return after having the ankle re-taped. It looks like he is fine.
Feb 5 - 7:51 PM

Rudy Gay was phenomenal in a 111-104 win over the Bucks on Monday with 32 points on 13-of-20 shooting with nine boards, six assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) sat this one out, so Gay predictably took control of the offense and helped the Kings snap a four-game losing streak. Cousins' status for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls is up in the air, so Gay could be a popular target in DFS if Boogie misses another game.
Feb 2 - 12:59 AM

Rudy Gay (eye) returned from a two-game absence on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies and scored 21 points with seven boards, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

DeMarcus Cousins left the game late with a pretty nasty ankle sprain, so Gay could take on a larger role in the offense if Boogie misses some time. His vision wasn't a problem tonight and he was in a good rhythm, shooting 6-of-12 from the field and connecting on all seven of his 3-pointers. Gay could be very busy on Monday vs. the Bucks so keep that in mind in DFS.
Jan 30 - 11:11 PM

Rudy Gay (eye) will start against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

He has missed the last two games, but he isn't expected to have any limitations tonight. His return will send Omri Casspi to the bench, but he is still worth owning in standard leagues. Gay is safe to plug back into lineups.
Jan 30 - 7:28 PM

Rudy Gay (eye) is ready to return on Saturday against the Grizzlies.

It's still unknown if Gay will have goggles for this game. Gay missed two games after being hit in the eye on Monday, but he should be able to get back into the 30s for minutes off the bat. Expect to see less of Omri Casspi, Ben McLemore and Willie Cauley-Stein.
