Kings' Ben McLemore: Left out of rotation Monday

McLemore (coach's decision) didn't see the court in Monday's 101-95 overtime loss to the Wizards.

McLemore's playing time has been all over the place this season, but it seems to be settling into a downward trend of late. He's logged seven minutes or fewer in six of the last seven contests, and this was already the third time this season that coach Dave Joerger has excluded him from the rotation entirely. It no longer appears the Kings are invested in the 23-year-old's future, so it wouldn't be too surprising if he were ultimately dealt at the trade deadline.
