Kings' Arron Afflalo: Will not play Tuesday

Afflalo is dealing with a strained glute and will not play in Tuesday's preseason finale versus the Clippers, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports.

Afflalo is currently competing to be the Kings' starting shooting guard, but in his absence Tuesday, look for Garrett Temple and Ben McLemore to absorb some additional minutes. The severity of the injury is unclear, but considering Tuesday is the final game on the team's preseason schedule, he'll have a week off for additional rest before the regular season opens against the Suns on Oct. 26.
