Carl Landry was traded to the 76ers.
He is likely going to miss the start of the year due to wrist surgery back in June. Landry is no lock to remain on the roster, especially with the team so heavily invested in their frontcourt. Don't let this news affect your projections on Jahlil Okafor or Nerlens Noel. The Kings also opened up more than $20 million in cap space with this move. Jul 1 - 11:18 PM

Carl Landry will miss 4-5 months after having right wrist surgery to repair a torn ligament on Tuesday.

Landry missed five games in January due to soreness in his wrist, but the extent of the injury wasn't revealed until he had a postseason MRI. He's struggled to stay healthy since inking a hefty contract with the Kings, who still owe him a guaranteed $13 million over the next two seasons. His status for training camp is uncertain, meaning Jason Thompson (and possibly Derrick Williams) may have less competition during the season's early stages.
Jun 2 - 7:15 PM

Carl Landry will start against the Lakers on Monday night.

His minutes should still be around 20 and Derrick Williams is a much better play tonight. Give Landry a look if you need a big man.
Apr 13 - 10:14 PM

Carl Landy and Jason Thompson will start against the Jazz on Wednesday.

The Kings will bring Derrick Williams and Reggie Evans off the bench. Landry doesn't play big minutes in most cases, so he's still not a great fantasy option. Williams offers the most upside and is worth a look in standard leagues.
Apr 8 - 8:07 PM

Carl Landry served his one-game suspension on Tuesday and he'll return to action for Wednesday's road game in Utah.

Landry left the bench after a scuffle during Sunday's game, leading to a mandatory suspension from the league office. He may earn a few extra minutes on Wednesday with DeMarcus Cousins (foot) expected to sit out, but Landry doesn't have enough upside to bother with in the majority of leagues.
Apr 8 - 12:37 AM

Carl Landry has been suspended one game for leaving the bench during an altercation on Sunday, meaning he will not play vs. the Wolves on Tuesday.

The NBA is pretty clear on the rule and Landry was in the paint, so the suspension was definitely coming. The Kings do have a home game on Tuesday, so they should have DeMarcus Cousins. Jason Thompson and Derrick Williams may see a little extra run, but there is really no fantasy impact here. Thompson would likely start.
Apr 6 - 4:38 PM

Carl Landry was assessed technical fouls for leaving the bench and running onto the court after a minor altercation on Sunday.

Fortunately he left the bench after a timeout was called, which may save him from a mandatory suspension from the league. Landry started at PF again but posted only six points, two rebounds and one assist, and he remains a non-factor in fantasy leagues.
Apr 5 - 11:43 PM

Carl Landry will start against the Rockets on Wednesday.

He'll start next to Omri Casspi and DeMarcus Cousins tonight. Landry will likely get around 20 minutes tonight and is worth a look in deep leagues. Derrick Williams has the higher upside.
Apr 1 - 6:51 PM

Carl Landry played two minutes during garbage time on Sunday, grabbing one rebound without taking any shots or free throws.

Landry has fallen out of George Karl's rotation and it's easy to see why, as he's been a net negative for the Kings both offensively and defensively. Unfortunately for Karl and the Kings, they owe Landry a guaranteed $6.5 million in both 2015-16 and 2016-17.
Mar 22 - 8:44 PM

Carl Landry is expected to start on Monday against the Hawks.

It's reportedly being called "a tweak" to the lineup, so that likely means DeMarcus Cousins is good to go. Perhaps coach George Karl likes Landry against Paul Millsap. Landry was a DNP-CD in his last two games, so he's not a fantasy option.
Mar 9 - 6:11 PM

Carl Landry will start next to Jason Thompson on Friday night against the Spurs.

In the George Karl era, these two guys have logged a grand total of four minutes next to each other, but they were great with an offensive rating of 154.2 in those four minutes. Landry is capable of putting up numbers and he might be worth a look in deep leagues. He's still not someone to trust on a 14-game night, obviously.
Feb 27 - 8:26 PM

Carl Landry returned to the bench for Saturday's game against the Clippers, but managed to score nine points with six boards and one assist in just 13 minutes.

Landry played just five minutes in a start against the Celtics on Friday, and his role is going to be too unpredictable to rely upon outside of the deepest of leagues. It's safe to leave Landry on the wire.
Feb 22 - 1:06 AM

Carl Landry will start against the Celtics on Friday.

This move will likely stick because Jason Thompson doesn't look like a George Karl guy on the surface. Still, Rudy Gay is going to play more power forward, so Landry isn't a great pickup, especially considering how often Gay and DeMarcus Cousins have the ball.
Feb 20 - 8:23 PM

Carl Landry came off the Kings' bench for six points, seven rebounds and one block in 24 minutes on Tuesday, while Reggie Evans added three points and six boards in 15 minutes.

The Kings lead the NBA in rebound differential at +4.1 per game but that's where the good news ends. They're 22nd in point differential (-3.9) and have been in disarray since the abrupt firing of coach Mike Malone in mid-December.
Feb 10 - 10:52 PM

Carl Landry (wrist) is listed as probable against the Pacers on Saturday.

After missing six games in a row earlier in January, he has been able to play in Sacramento's last two games and he doesn't appear to be limited in any way. However, Landry is only averaging 18.8 minutes per game this season, so he would need to see his role increased before we could recommend picking him up in most leagues.
