Carl Landry scored 12 points off the bench in Friday's double-overtime game, hitting 6-of-8 shots with eight rebounds, one steal and one block in 37 minutes.
Landry is only averaging 20 minutes per game on the year but the Kings need his scoring and he's crept up into some late-round value. Give him a look if you need to plug some holes in a 12-team roster. Nov 8 - 3:10 AM

Carl Landry played just 16 minutes in Wednesday's blowout, but hit 4-of-6 shots and 10-of-10 free throws for 18 points and four rebounds.

Jason Thompson started and was 0-for-5 with no points and three rebounds in 17 minutes, and you have to think Landry might steal his job at some point. Put him on your radar.

Carl Landry scored eight points with four rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 23 minutes.

He hasn't been very productive this month and the Kings have a mess at power forward. Reggie Evans miss all six shots from the field with 16 rebounds, three assists and one turnover. Jason Thompson played 18 minutes in his start with two points and three rebounds, and two turnovers. Basically, this situation for most fantasy owners can be summed up in one word: Nope.

Carl Landry (knee) returned to action on Monday, scoring 15 points on 5-of-6 shooting (5-of-5 FTs) with seven rebounds and no steals or blocks in 18 minutes.

This is a Landry line if we've seen one. He'll need to have a bunch more before we recommend to owners that they deal with his fantasy deficient stat-set in standard leagues.

Carl Landry started Wednesday's exhibition in Beijing but only played five minutes in the Kings' overtime loss to the Nets.

Landry isn't big enough to defend Brook Lopez in the paint and he's not mobile enough to chase Mirza Teletovic off the 3-point line, so this was a dreadful matchup for him. That will be the case on plenty of nights this season, and his likely backup role is one of many reasons to avoid him.
Oct 15 - 11:14 AM

Carl Landry (knee) posted seven points, five rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes off the Kings' bench during Sunday's exhibition.

Landry has been active throughout training camp without any obvious setbacks, so it appears he'll be fully healthy for the Kings' season opener. Jason Thompson (seven points, seven rebounds, five turnovers in 22 minutes) is the favorite to start at PF, reducing Landry to a backup role, and his lack of statistical versatility rules him out as a standard-league fantasy option.
Oct 5 - 10:14 PM

Carl Landry (knee) did not practice on Tuesday.

He had knee surgery in March and coach Mike Malone just gave him the day off after five consecutive practices. Landry has a chance to start at power forward and he'll look to bounce back from an injury-plaged 2013-14. He's still not a great option in fantasy leagues.
Sep 30 - 8:20 PM

Carl Landry practiced fully on Saturday for the first time since tearing his right meniscus in February.

"I think in the back of his mind he wasn’t sure – ‘Can I get through a whole practice?’," said coach Mike Malone. "I’m not ready to say he’s 100 percent, but he’s getting really close." Landry admitted in mid-September that wasn't fully recovered, but it's a great sign that the seven-year veteran made it through an entire full-contact practice without any breaks. He's fighting for minutes in a crowded frontcourt rotation, so regardless of his health he should go undrafted in all fantasy formats.

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.
Mar 20 - 5:57 PM

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.
Mar 8 - 2:25 PM

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.
Mar 6 - 10:26 AM

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.
