Rudy Gay (concussion) will not play against the Rockets on Wednesday.
Considering he blacked out following the collision, Gay is likely going to be out for at least a week. His fantasy owners can consider dropping him at any depth if they need games played. Meanwhile, Omri Casspi would get the start while Derrick Williams, Ben McLemore, Ray McCallum and Sauce Castillo would benefit. Mar 30 - 11:52 PM

Coach George Karl said he believes Rudy Gay was diagnosed with a concussion and that Gay blacked out after his collision on Monday.

He will have to go through the concussion protocol, which gives him very little chance to play for Wednesday. Although, Andre Drummond and Elijah Millsap only needed a little over one day to get through the protocol earlier this month, but that's still very rare. Gay could miss the entire week and he's not a must-own player if you really need games played this week. Ben McLemore, Omri Casspi, Ray McCallum and Sauce Castillo benefit.

Rudy Gay is undergoing a concussion test on Monday and will not return.

He was able to walk back to the locker room on his own, but he was a little woozy. For now, we would consider Gay extremely doubtful to play for Wednesday's game in Houston and he could miss one of the upcoming home games this weekend. Omri Casspi, Ben McLemore and Sauce Castillo would benefit without Rudy.
Mar 30 - 9:57 PM

Rudy Gay could sit on Wednesday night in Houston.

We're just guessing here, but the Kings sitting DeMarcus Cousins in a road game that's not in back-to-back set suggests Rudy won't play. We'll pass along anything official, but for now his owners should plan on him getting three games this week. Omri Casspi, Ben McLemore and Sauce Castillo would benefit most.
Mar 30 - 2:38 PM

Rudy Gay scored 14 points with four rebounds, five assists and one steal in 29 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday.

He was on the injury report with his patella tendon issue, but that's probably not the reason why his playing time was low. Gay will be on the injury report going forward, but it's nothing to worry about as long as he's probable.
Mar 26 - 2:46 AM

Rudy Gay (knee) will start against the Suns on Wednesday.

He'll get some minutes as the stretch four throughout the game and could have a big night even though the Suns are playing better on D. Gay should be in all lineups tonight.
Mar 25 - 9:43 PM

Rudy Gay (knee) is listed as probable to play against the Suns on Wednesday.

The overwhelming majority of the time this would be a non-issue with the Kings listing a player as probable. Usually, the team won't even update their "probable" players until they announce the starting lineup minutes before a game. However, there's some added risk here with the road game on a back-to-back set. We're still fully expecting Gay to play.
Mar 25 - 4:50 PM

Rudy Gay struggled offensively on Tuesday, making 6-of-19 field goals, but he still finished with 21 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks.

Gay is owed a guaranteed $25.7 million over the next two seasons, with a $14.3 million player option in 2017-18, so it wouldn't be surprising if the Kings eventually scale back his playing time in the final few weeks of the season. He logged 41 minutes tonight, however, and has been a dominant fantasy force over the past few weeks with averages of 26.4 points, 1.4 threes, 5.4 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.6 blocks, all with solid percentages.
Mar 25 - 12:54 AM

Rudy Gay says he's been more "creative" when he plays power forward.

George Karl has made the move in an effort to improve spacing, and Gay has responded in emphatic fashion with averages of 29.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, a steal and two triples on 53.8 percent shooting. "I think Rudy’s confident against the bigger player rather than the quicker player," Karl said. DeMarcus Cousins has also endorsed the move, and everyone will be on board so long as it produces wins.
Mar 23 - 10:12 AM

Rudy Gay stayed hot during Sunday's win vs. the visiting Wizards, scoring a game-high 26 points (10-of-19 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) with two 3-pointers, five rebounds, two assists and one block.

Gay's knee injury is behind him and he's simply rolling right now, thanks in part to George Karl's willingness to give him carte blanche offensively. His outlook is even brighter since DeMarcus Cousins limping toward the finish line with a variety of nagging injuries.
Mar 22 - 8:43 PM

Rudy Gay will start at PF vs. the Wizards on Sunday.

He dropped 33 points on Friday and may see his offensive workload decrease with DeMarcus Cousins active, but Gay remains a must-start option in all leagues. His recent knee injury is no longer a concern.
Mar 22 - 4:42 PM

Rudy Gay scored 33 points on 11-of-20 shooting (2-of-5 3PTs, 9-of-10 FTs) with nine rebounds, four assists and two steals in the Kings' 101-91 win over the Hornets on Friday.

It's strange to say but with DeMarcus Cousins on a strange absence the Kings have just one real fantasy asset. With the way things are going down with front office drama in Sacramento, owners have to be on guard with both Gay and Cousins.
Mar 21 - 2:52 AM

Kings' head coach George Karl said that Rudy Gay (knee) is "fine."

Gay was able to log 37 minutes in his return to action on Wednesday, so he should be good to go for Friday's game vs. the Hornets. With DeMarcus Cousins (calf) being listed as questionable, Gay could be forced into heavy minutes as Sacramento's go-to guy on offense, and he'll be someone to target in daily leagues if Cousins is again unavailable. Stay tuned.
Mar 19 - 4:05 PM

Rudy Gay returned from a sore knee and hit 6-of-19 shots and 11-of-11 free throws for 23 points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals on Wednesday.

It's nice to see that he's still playing, despite not feeling well. Keep him active, but watch for news on him, too. As long as Gay is playing, forget about Omri Casspi.
Mar 19 - 1:55 AM

Rudy Gay will play against the Clippers on Wednesday night.

He was probable for tonight and the Kings don't update their players with that tag, so at least they're consistent. Gay is a great play in daily leagues tonight.
