Player News - Kings

Date: Team: Pos:

The Kings are said to be active on the phones as the trade deadline approaches, and Derrick Williams and Nik Stauskas are both reportedly on the block.

We knew that Stauskas had been linked in several trade talks, but now it appears that Williams could be on his way out of Sacramento as well. No deal for either player is imminent by any means, but we will be sure to let you know if anything develops. Both Stauskas and Williams would have to be traded to ideal situations to make an impact in fantasy leagues, so owners can use a wait-and-see approach for now.

Carl Landry has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors.

He has been out since Jan. 13 nursing a sprained wrist, so even he does end up playing he probably won't see a lot of minutes. Landry has been solid off the bench for Sacramento, but until his role improves he will only be an option in deeper leagues.
Jan 27 - 7:46 PM

Monday's game between the Knicks and Kings has been postponed, and it will be made up on March 3.

With the pending blizzard threatening New York and the surrounding areas, the league will play it safe. It's the right call. Be sure your daily lineups don't include any Knicks or Kings on Monday night.
Jan 26 - 10:34 AM

Quincy Miller will sign another 10-day contract with the Kings when his current deal expires.

He made some noise on Friday by scoring 13 points with six rebounds, two assists and two steals, but he got some extra playing time because Rudy Gay was ejected from that contest. Unless Miller earns a larger role in Sacramento, he is only worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues.
Jan 25 - 7:48 PM

DeMarcus Cousins scored 28 points on 9-of-19 shooting (10-of-11 FTs) with 11 rebounds, two assists and three steals in Friday's blowout loss to the Warriors.

Cousins is keeping things together so far and the finger pointing inside the walls hasn't been directed at him. Yet. Unless he gets fed up with management, he's going to destroy the opposition.
Jan 24 - 5:00 AM

Quincy Miller logged 34 minutes in Friday's blowout loss, scoring 13 points on 3-of-8 shooting (1-of-3 from deep, 6-of-7 from the line) with six rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Management wants Miller to play more before his 10-day deal expires and they'll probably look at that over the weekend. Miller was helped by the early Rudy Gay ejection, and like a lot of 10-day guys he's going to try and make a splash. In a daily league, there might be some appeal there if things set up correctly for him.
Jan 24 - 4:57 AM

Rudy Gay was ejected in the first half for two technical fouls during Friday's game against the Warriors.

He picked up the two techs in a matter of seconds for his first ejection of the season. He won't be suspended for this infraction and this was just his sixth and seventh tech, so he's not on pace to be suspended either. Quincy Miller will play more tonight.
Jan 23 - 11:25 PM

Carl Landry (wrist) will not play against the Warriors on Friday.

It'll be his fifth game out of the lineup in a row. Landry was starting to come around before the injury, but the Kings will have to count on Derrick Williams, Reggie Evans and Jason Thompson a little more.
Jan 23 - 2:29 PM

DeMarcus Cousins scored 28 points with 14 rebounds, three assists and two steals in 41 minutes against the Nets during a 103-100 loss on Wednesday.

The Kings did not get any help from their bench with just 18 points. As for Cousins, he has double-doubles in eight straight games and came into tonight with 2015 averages of 23.6 points, 13.6 boards, 4.5 assists, 2.3 blocks and 1.8 steals. Even with his awful 5.6 turnovers per game in that span, he's still one of the best centers in fantasy.
Jan 22 - 1:09 AM

Rudy Gay scored 25 points with eight rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer against the Nets on Wednesday.

He's been consistent since returning from a knee injury on Saturday with at least 22 points and five boards in each of his last three games. Gay also played more than 40 minutes for the first time in 2015 tonight, so any concern of a knee issue should basically be put to bed.
Jan 22 - 1:01 AM

Ramon Sessions played 22 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday with two points, four rebounds and four assists.

He made his 2015 debut tonight and played more than his season average of 17.1 minutes per game. Sessions has lost plenty of ground to Darren Collison and will continue to back him up. He's only an option in very deep leagues.
Jan 22 - 12:52 AM

Rudy Gay (left knee) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Nets.

He sat out on Friday but has averaged 24.0 points in 36.5 minutes during the two games since then. Owners should feel confident about his status for Wednesday, though it makes sense to double-check his status prior to tip-off.
Jan 20 - 9:47 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (ankle), Rudy Gay (knee) and Omri Casspi (eye) are all listed as probable for Wednesday's home game vs. the Nets.

All three guys played on Monday and we'll leave them off the injury report unless a pessimistic update surfaces after shootaround. Cousins is averaging multiple career highs this season, including points (23.9), rebounds (12.6), assists (3.2) and blocks (1.7), yet he's currently trailing guys like Tim Duncan, LaMarcus Aldridge and Dwight Howard in fan-based All-Star voting.
Jan 20 - 9:43 PM

Carl Landry (wrist) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Nets.

He's been out a week after spraining his wrist and the Kings have him listed as day-to-day. Jason Thompson, Derrick Williams and Reggie Evans will each earn more minutes in Landry's absence, but there are no clear-cut winners in fantasy leagues.
Jan 20 - 9:37 PM

Kings' head coach Tyrone Corbin said that the D-League is not an option for Nik Stauskas at this time.

Stauskas has been a DNP-CD for the past two games, and he has recently been mentioned in some trade rumors. His fantasy value in Sacramento is nearly non-existent and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in most leagues.
