Darren Collison (quad) will not play against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Like about 20 other NBA players, Collison is dealing with a leg contusion. He missed Tuesday night, but chances are he will be able to play on Friday. Ramon Session was solid against the Pelicans on Tuesday with 15 points, three rebounds and six assists in 32 minutes. He gets a nice matchup against Isaiah Canaan and is worth a look in most leagues for short-term value.

Rudy Gay (Achilles) and Darren Collison will not play against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Gay did not play on Tuesday due to his lingering tendinitis and the Kings are hopeful he can return on Friday. He's been dealing with this issue since last season and it's something he may have to manage throughout the year. Omri Casspi scored 22 points and has been very effective at getting to the rim, so look to use him in deep leagues and in daily formats.

Jason Thompson went scoreless in 33 minutes during Tuesday's win vs. the Pelicans, adding seven rebounds, one assist and one block.

Thompson is an afterthought offensively, averaging 4.2 points on 37.1 percent shooting this season, and even when he plays well it rarely shows up in the boxscore. Few players have as poor a minute-to-fantasy-value ratio, and Thompson simply isn't worth a roster spot in fantasy leagues.

DeMarcus Cousins led the Kings to a road win on Tuesday with 22 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, three steals, one block and five turnovers in 35 minutes.

DMC made 8-of-18 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs in another impressive performance, helping Sacramento improve their record to 9-5. He's solidified himself as a top-10 fantasy option and has only picked up one technical foul through 14 games, so owners shouldn't have to fret about suspensions as we near the end of the regular season.
Nov 25 - 11:47 PM

On the heels of consecutive double-digit scoring games, Derrick Williams posted a donut on 0-of-5 shooting vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday.

He chipped in just two rebounds in 17 minutes of action, and his disappearing act is even more disappointing since Rudy Gay (Achilles) was unavailable for the Kings. Any momentum Williams had has been squandered, and he belongs on the waiver wire.
Nov 25 - 11:46 PM

Omri Casspi took over the Kings' starting SF job on Tuesday with Rudy Gay (Achilles) unavailable, scoring a season-high 22 points in a road win in New Orleans.

Casspi made one 3-pointer but made his living by sprinting the court and attacking the basket -- he was 9-of-14 from the field with only three shot attempts outside the paint. He added four rebounds, one assist and one steal without any turnovers, but Gay's day-to-day status makes Casspi a tricky guy to rely on for Wednesday's game vs. Houston.
Nov 25 - 11:46 PM

Ramon Sessions had 15 points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, six dimes and two steals as a fill-in starter on Tuesday, taking the place of Darren Collison (quad).

Collison is dealing with a bruised quad and is day-to-day, which leaves Sessions as a shaky fantasy option for Wednesday's road game in Houston. This was his third double-digit scoring performance of the season, and the third game in which he's made a 3-point shot.
Nov 25 - 11:45 PM

The Kings are hopeful that Rudy Gay (Achilles) will be able to return for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

That means that Gay is not expected to be available for Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets, and we'll be monitoring his status closely. Omri Casspi has slid into the starting lineup with Gay sidelined, and he can be a nice short-term option for owners seeking some 3-point shooting. Stay tuned for an official update on Gay's status as we draw closer to Wednesday's tip.
Nov 25 - 7:29 PM

Darren Collison (quad) will not play Tuesday vs. the Pelicans, and Ramon Sessions will start.

Sessions will be asked to step it up on the offensive end tonight with Rudy Gay (Achilles) also sidelined, and he makes for a solid option in daily leagues. Ray McCallum will see some extended minutes off the bench, but Sessions is the guy to own here.
Nov 25 - 6:57 PM

Ramon Sessions (knee) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game vs. New Orleans.

With Darren Collison (quad contusion) being listed as questionable, Sessions could be in line for a start on Tuesday. However, if both Sessions and Collison are ruled out, Ray McCallum would get all the minutes he can handle at point guard, and would be a fine plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned.
Nov 25 - 2:30 PM

Darren Collison (quad contusion) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

If Collison is unable to go, Ramon Sessions (right knee strain) would slide into the starting lineup, and would make for a solid plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Sessions put up 18 points, three rebounds, and two 3-pointers during his last start, but he also failed to register a single assist making him a more attractive option in points leagues. Ray McCallum would also see some extended run off the bench.
Nov 25 - 2:24 PM

Rudy Gay (Achilles) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Omri Casspi and Derrick Williams will likely split minutes at small forward tonight, but Casspi is the more alluring option as he's posted a usage rate of 18.8 playing next to Darren Collison, DeMarcus Cousins, and Ben McLemore this season. He's capable of hitting 3-pointers in bunches, and has a favorable matchup tonight vs. the Pelicans, so Casspi could make for a nice plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
Nov 25 - 2:10 PM

Ramon Sessions (knee) is questionable to face the Pelicans on Tuesday.

He has a right knee strain, so it's a muscle issue for the backup point guard. Sessions does have a decent chance to play and he would see big minutes if Darren Collison (quad) needs to sit out. If both are out, it'll be Ray McCallum at the point.

Darren Collison (quad) and Ramon Sessions (knee) are questionable to play against the Pelicans on Tuesday.

He has a contusion to his thigh and he was able to play through it on Saturday. Collision has been a pleasant surprise with 30 assists to go with just five turnovers. if he and Sessions are out, Ray McCallum will be logging some serious minutes.

Nov 24 - 7:19 PM

Rudy Gay (Achilles) is listed as questionable for Tuesday to face the Pelicans.

He is still dealing with right Achilles tendinitis and this issue is not going to go away any time soon. Gay does sound like he has a chance to play, but his owners will want to check back to see if he goes through shootaround. If he's out, Omri Casspi will start.
