Rudy Gay flirted with a triple-double against the Bucks on Thursday with 20 points, nine rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.
There was no concern with his Achilles tonight, but he's likely going to have to deal with some soreness. Gay posts better numbers next to Cousins because of improved efficiency. He actually failed to top 40 percent from the field in any of his previous four games while turning it over 3.3 times per game in that span, too. Expect him to get it going. Dec 19 - 1:00 AM

Rudy Gay (Achilles) is being listed as probable for Thursday's game vs. Milwaukee.

Gay has been playing through his Achilles tendinitis for some time now, so we'd expect him to give it a go. With Omri Casspi (knee) already ruled out, Gay will get all the minutes he can handle in a favorable matchup against the Bucks, and he makes for a solid plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
Dec 18 - 4:28 PM

Rudy Gay dropped 22 points in Tuesday's loss to the Thunder, adding six boards, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

He shot just 8-of-20 from the field, but Gay has to be feeling gassed from carrying the Kings in the absence of DeMarcus Cousins (illness). Gay is one of the few players on the Kings roster who can create his own shot, so his shooting percentage is clearly going to take a hit until Cousins returns. While he does appear to be hobbling, Gay continues to log big minutes and belongs in all active lineups.
Dec 17 - 1:34 AM

Rudy Gay made 6-of-22 from the field for 20 points against the Pistons during a 95-90 loss on Saturday, adding eight rebounds, eight assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

Outside of the awful shooting, this was a pretty nice line from Gay. He has been battling some Achilles soreness and has faded recently later in games. In fact, Gay has made 52.6 percent from the field in the first half of games and just 38.6 percent in the second half of games this season. Regardless, he'll be a stud a long as he stays healthy.
Dec 14 - 12:33 AM

Rudy Gay continues to wear a pressurized walking boot on his right foot, as he's still dealing with Achilles tendinitis.

Gay is playing despite dealing with the discomfort, but this will be something we'll continue to monitor. He's missed a couple games this year due to his troublesome Achilles, and if he were ever to miss extended time, Omri Casspi would make for a solid pickup. Stay tuned.
Dec 12 - 9:53 AM

Rudy Gay made 4-of-18 from the field for 13 points during a 113-109 overtime loss to the Rockets on Thursday, adding eight rebounds, eight assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

His shots are up since DeMarcus Cousins went down, but he's shot the ball fairly well until tonight. Gay made 50 percent or higher in four of previous six games without Cousins and should be just fine without him. His fantasy owners' biggest concern should be his Achilles, which cost him two games earlier this season. To be clear, he looks healthy right now.
Dec 12 - 2:01 AM

Rudy Gay scored 29 points on 10-of-19 shooting (9-of-10 FTs) with six rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block in the Kings' 101-92 win over the Jazz on Monday.

Gay and Darren Collison (16 points, six assists, one steal) are going to carry as much load as they can handle with DeMarcus Cousins out for a while. Their efficiency numbers could take a hit or even a tumble since they were already carrying close to a max-load with Cousins on the court.
Dec 9 - 2:13 AM

Rudy Gay scored 16 points in Saturday's loss to the Magic, adding five boards, six assists, two steals and one block in 36 minutes.

His passing has really come along as of late, and he has now had more than five assists in four of his last five outings. However, he still looks like he is lingering and he has been playing big minutes for the Kings, so owners will want to be mindful of that going forward. Having said that, Gay needs to be in all lineups while he is active and he is currently producing top-25 value on the season. The imminent return of DeMarcus Cousins (illness) can be seen as a good thing and it will likely take some of the offensive burden off of Gay.
Dec 7 - 1:02 AM

Rudy Gay still looks a bit banged up but you wouldn't know it by his stat line, as he hit 10-of-20 shots for 27 points, five rebounds, five assists, one three and a 6-of-6 mark from the foul line.

Gay logged 36 minutes and at one point he appeared to bruise his knee, but the Achilles' issue is the bigger one from our point of view. There seems to be an undercurrent of concern over both his and DeMarcus Cousins' minutes, but with Rudy we've seen him limping a lot on the court and that's a bit disconcerting. Returning top 20-25 value on the season, it may not be a bad time to see if you can get another well-situated top 24-36 guy while he's cranking out lines like this.
Dec 6 - 3:13 AM

Rudy Gay finished Tuesday's loss to the Raptors with a career-high 10 assists to go with 20 points, six rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

It is a little sad that it has taken Gay this long to reach 10 assists in a game, but it is better late than never. On another note, the Achilles injury that had been bothering him looks like a thing of the past, as he was very active on both ends of the floor.
Dec 3 - 1:04 AM

Rudy Gay (Achilles), and Darren Collison (quad) are in the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

Gay and Collison were probable heading into this one, so this news should have been expected. Get them active.
Nov 30 - 6:10 PM

Rudy Gay is listed as probable to face the Grizzlies on Sunday.

This news comes at an odd hour, but a probable tag from the Kings usually means that player is a go. Gay also has the revenge factor and the Kings would love to get a win after a loss to Memphis on a buzzer-beater. We'd be shocked if he sits.
Nov 30 - 2:20 AM

Rudy Gay (Achilles) returned to action in Friday's loss to the Spurs, scoring 23 points on 9-of-17 shooting (1-of-2 from deep, 4-of-6 from the line) with eight rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 35 minutes.

That Gay did this with no DeMarcus Cousins around to keep the defense honest and Kawhi Leonard draped all over him all night is impressive. He's returning top 20-30 value on the season and the only number that seems out of place is his foul shooting (87.5 percent), which is about nine percent above his career 78.7 percent mark.
Nov 29 - 2:31 AM

Rudy Gay (Achilles) is starting against the Spurs on Friday night.

The Kings didn't announce he was a go until four minutes after the tip time. We'll let you know how he does tonight.
Nov 28 - 9:03 PM

Rudy Gay (Achilles) and Darren Collison (quad) are listed as probable to face the Spurs on Friday.

Now it sounds like they're going to play unless coach Mike Malone pulls a Tom Thibodeau. Gay owners will still want to check back for an update in the next 30 minutes. Omri Casspi would only be a handcuff in deep leagues if Gay does make it back.
