Eric Moreland (shoulder) was able to go through some one-on-one drills during Thursday's practice, but he still has not been able to do any contact work.

Moreland will remain sidelined for the remainder of the season, but he should be good to go for Summer League in July. We'll continue to track his progress every step of the way, but he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Rookie Eric Moreland (shoulder) had successful surgery, and he's out for the season.

Moreland had the procedure on January 3, and he said that he originally sustained the injury during summer league. After trying to battle through it, Moreland had to go under the knife. He's expected to be ready for summer league in July after rehabbing for about six months.

Eric Moreland (left shoulder labral tear) will undergo surgery and miss the rest of the 2014-15 season.

Eric Moreland (left shoulder labral tear) could undergo surgery, according to Kings head coach Ty Corbin.

"Thought we could get through it, thought we could get through most of the season but it’s gotten a little worse," Corbin said of the rookie's shoulder. "Keeps popping out more frequently and now there’s an opportunity to take care of it." While surgery would be a setback for Moreland, there are no fantasy implications to this news as he isn't part of the Kings' rotation.

Eric Moreland (left shoulder labral tear) is out for Monday's game vs. the Nets.

Tue, Dec 16, 2014 05:34:00 PM

Eric Moreland will be reassigned to the D-League on Sunday.

D-League send-downs and call-ups are Moreland's specialty. He's played a total of two minutes over three games with the Kings this season, so he can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.

The Kings are high on the defensive ability of Eric Moreland, but don't want to put too much pressure on him to make an immediate impact.

He earned his contract due to his stellar play at summer league, averaging 2.7 blocks, 3.5 points, 8.8 boards and 0.5 steals in 19.2 minutes per game. Moreland is probably going to be held out of the rotation, but the uncertainty at power forward could give him a chance to make an impact down the line. Just keep an eye on him for now.

Kings prospect PF Eric Moreland said that he's added nearly 20 pounds to his lean 6'10" frame this summer.

Moreland is up to 230 pounds but he conceded, "I still have a lot more weight to add." Kings GM Pete D'Alessandro described the 22-year-old Moreland as an energetic player who can "step in and create a niche for himself," but he's not even a lock to make the regular-season roster.

He was undrafted after being named as Pac-12 All-Defensive Honorable Mention in 2013-14 and 2012-13 at Oregon State.
