Carl Landry said recently that he's still not 100 percent recovered from the torn meniscus that ended his 2013-14 season.
"That’s what I’m going through right now – just being patient, but still trying to do the right things on the court," Landry said. "I would say that I’m almost [100 percent healthy] – I’m very close." He'll be scraping off the rust during training camp, assuming he can fully participate, and there's no reason to touch him in fantasy leagues with Jason Thompson, Reggie Evans and Eric Moreland all crowded around the PF position.

Carl Landry (knee) is making progress in his rehab from a torn meniscus in his right knee.

Landry is currently rehabbing in Indianapolis after undergoing surgery on his knee in March and is hoping to deliver on the expectations the Kings had for him when they inked him to a $26 million contract last summer. "I dedicated this summer to redefining my mind and my body and hopefully having one of the best years of my career," the 30-year-old said. "Confidence is the game. After having injuries, there’s certain moves you don’t want to make." Landry only played 18 games for the Kings last season and can be a decent option in deeper fantasy leagues, but he'll join a crowded frontcourt once he's fully healthy and shouldn't be on fantasy owners' draft boards for the time being.

Carl Landry had surgery on Thursday to repair a torn medial meniscus in his right knee.

Landry's four-year pact with the Kings is off to a horrible start, as he appeared in just 18 games this season and averaged 4.2 points, 3.2 rebounds and 0.3 assists in 13 minutes per game. He's expected to be fully recovered in time for training camp, but that doesn't mean he'll be worth drafting in typical fantasy leagues.

Carl Landry will miss the remainder of the season due to a medial meniscus tear in his right knee.

An MRI revealed the bad news, which means the 30-year-old will finish the season the way he began it -- rehabbing from a major injury. He's played 18 games total since signing a four-year, $26 million deal during the offseason. The Kings will rely on guys like Reggie Evans, Derrick Williams, Quincy Acy and Jason Thompson to pick up the slack in his absence.

Carl Landry (knee) will be out for the foreseeable future, according to Kings coach Michael Malone.

We have yet to hear the results of Landry's MRI from Monday, but coach Kevin Malone's latest quotes don't bode well for Landry's availability in the near future. "I think they’re still talking with the doctors, getting results, but he’s out for the foreseeable future," Malone said. We'll consider Landry out indefinitely unless we hear otherwise, while Jason Thompson, Derrick Williams, and Reggie Evans will all absorb minutes that otherwise would have gone to Landry.

Carl Landry (knee) will not play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

There is still no word on his MRI and the Kings have no reason to put him on the court at less than 100 percent. Landry has battled injuries all season and played in just 18 games so far this season, so he can be ignored in almost all formats until he can prove he's able to stay healthy.
Mar 5 - 6:44 PM

The Kings are awaiting MRI results on Carl Landry (knee) before determining next steps.

Landry has missed three games with his sore right knee and his impending MRI results will help determine how the team proceeds. "Once we get those results, obviously we’ll be able to have a much better idea of what the plan is with him moving forward," coach Michael Malone said. "I’m hoping that he’s going to be able to play some of these games to finish out the season." The Kings had been planning to give Landry a lot of playing time, but Derrick Williams and Jason Thompson will benefit from the inherited his minutes for as long as Landry is out.

Carl Landry (knee) will not play against the Pelicans on Monday.

He is headed for an MRI on his injured knee and it sounds like he'll be missing more time. Landry just can't stay healthy in his first year back in Sacramento, so he's not really on the fantasy radar until he shows he can stay on the court.
Mar 3 - 9:15 PM

Carl Landry (knee) will not play against the Wolves on Saturday night.

His knee tendinitis will keep him out of his second game in a row this weekend. Landry's hip surgery in the offseason has kept him down for most of this season and he's unlikely to get anything going in his first year back with the Kings.
Mar 1 - 9:16 PM

Carl Landry (knee) will not play on Friday against the Lakers.

Landry is still playing his way into shape and though he has shown some progress from what appeared to be a Chuck Hayes reenactment, this could be a sign that he's still a ways away or some new ailment. We'll let you know when we get clarification. Look for Derrick Williams, Jason Thompson, Reggie Evans and Aaron Gray to each play more than they're accustomed to.

Updating a previous item, Carl Landry will not start Friday's game against the Lakers.

With the Lakers starting Wes Johnson at the power forward spot, the Kings will be going small. Derrick Williams will start at the four and Jason Thompson will be at the five. Landry isn't a recommended plug-n-play as he fights with Reggie Evans for minutes off the bench.

The Sacramento Bee projects Carl Landy as the starter in place of DeMarcus Cousins (suspension) Friday night.

The Bee expects the starting five to be Isaiah Thomas, Ben McLeMore, Rudy Gay, Landry and Jason Thompson. Landry only had nine points and five rebounds when he started in place of Cousins on Feb. 19, but this time he'll be facing a Lakers defense that is incapable of defending the interior. We'd expect a little more production, although Derrick Williams, Aaron Gray and Reggie Evans will see plenty of burn off the bench. It's a low-floor situation for daily leaguers. Cousins will come off suspension Saturday.
Feb 28 - 9:57 AM

Coach Mike Malone hinted that Carl Landry could move ahead of Jason Thompson going forward.

Landry was signed to a four-year, $26 million contract prior to this season. So far, the Kings have gotten 15 games and 12.5 minutes a night for their money. It only makes sense to get Landry on the court more so they can at least evaluate how he fits with their other pieces. The 18-36 Kings have nothing to lose.
Feb 21 - 11:33 AM

Carl Landry got a start on Wednesday and had nine points and five rebounds in 21 minutes.

Cousins is day-to-day with a hip injury, but Jason Thompson, who had just six points and six rebounds in another start tonight, is actually a better bet for success while Cousins is out.
Feb 20 - 2:47 AM

Carl Landry made his first start of the season against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He's been held in check all season, playing just 11.9 minutes per game with averages of 3.6 points, 3.2 boards and 0.1 steals. Landry has been an efficient scorer in his career, but his hip injury from the offseason still seems to be holding him back. He's only worth a look in deep leagues.
