Gay (shoulder) scored a season-high 28 points (13-21 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT) with 10 rebounds over 42 minutes in Monday's 127-122 overtime loss to the Hornets. Gay clearly wasn't slowed down by his shoulder, turning in his best game of the season, albeit in a losing effort. It was Gay's second double-double in three games, but don't get accustomed to those numbers moving forward. DeMarcus Cousins left late in the game, so Gay may be asked to do more on offense if he misses any time.
Gay (shoulder) will start Monday's game at Charlotte, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports. Gay missed one game as a result of a strained left shoulder, but in his first appearance since Thursday, he'll assume his typical role as the Kings' starting small forward. In his last three outings, he averaged 18 points (on 50 percent shooting), eight rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.3 steals in 30 minutes.
Gay (shoulder) said after Monday's morning shootaround that he would return to the Kings' lineup later in the evening against the Hornets, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports. Gay, who first suffered the left shoulder strain last Thursday against the Heat, was forced to miss one game with the injury, but it doesn't look like his absence will extend beyond that. The small forward's return will likely result in a move back to the bench for Darren Collison, who entered the lineup Saturday against the Magic with Gay sidelined. With his health seemingly secure heading into the week, Gay's fantasy owners should feel more than comfortable keeping him active.
Gay (shoulder) has been ruled out for Saturday's game, Jason Jones of the Sacremento Bee reports. Gay wasn't able to return to Thursday's game after sustaining a shoulder strain -- an injury that will now force the 29-year-old out of the starting lineup for the second time this season. That being said, the injury doesn't appear to be very serious so it's likely he will be able to return sometime next week. For now, Marco Belinelli or Omri Casspi could see additional time at small forward against the Magic with Gay sidelined.
Gay (shoulder) is doubtful for Saturday's tilt in Orlando, James Ham of CSNBayArea.com reports. Gay left Thursday's game with a shoulder strain and was unable to return. There is nothing to indicate the injury being serious, but the Kings will likely be cautious with Gay before they put him back on the floor. If he cannot go Saturday, his next opportunity will be Monday in Charlotte. Gay is currently averaging 17.4 pints, 6.8 boards, 2.7 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 triples in 31 minutes per game.
