      Kings' Omri Casspi: Nets 11 points in start

      Casspi managed 11 points (3-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and an assist over 29 minutes in Saturday's 120-101 loss to the Warriors. The veteran forward got his starting opportunity as part of a lineup shift that saw Kostas Koufos receive the start at center and Rudy Gay shift over to the power forward spot. Despite the poor shooting night (30 percent from the field), Casspi still managed his third consecutive double-digit scoring performance and fifth over the last six games. The 27-year-old's three buckets from the field also all happened to be from three-point range, making it eight baskets from beyond the arc over the last three outings for Casspi. DeMarcus Cousins' back injury may continue to afford Casspi extra playing time.

      Kings' Omri Casspi: Will start Saturday

      Casspi will start Saturday's game against the Warriors, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports. With the Kings set to take on the Warriors, coach George Karl opted to go with a smaller starting lineup, leaving Willie Cauley-Stein to come off the bench. Casspi should record a fair amount of minutes, but it remains to be seen how effective he might be against one of the better defenses in the league.

      Kings' Omri Casspi: Manages second straight double-digit scoring night Friday

      Casspi contributed 15 points (6-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and six rebounds over 28 minutes in Friday's 101-91 loss to the Timberwolves. Casspi once again enjoyed plenty of time on the court as a consequence of DeMarcus Cousins (back) missing a second straight game, as well as fellow small forward Rudy Gay suffering his worst shooting night in almost a year. The seven-year pro has now amassed double-digit scoring performances in four out of the last five contests, shooting 60 percent or better in three games over that span. Casspi is unsurprisingly displaying the offensive proficiency he has demonstrated in prior seasons while also receiving steady playing time, rendering him worthy of consideration as a waiver-wire pickup in deeper fantasy leagues.

      Kings' Omri Casspi: Tallies 19 points Wednesday

      Casspi registered 19 points (6-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, and two steals over 31 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Bucks. Casspi topped 30 minutes for the third time in four games, with his extended run in Wednesday's game due in large part to the absence of DeMarcus Cousins (back). Cousins' lower-back strain isn't expected to sideline him long-term, so Casspi's playing time should soon drop off a bit, but because coach George Karl typically employs a small rotation, Casspi should still enjoy some appeal in deeper formats. His ability to occasionally get hot from the outside and rebound at a decent clip will continue to earn his a regular role off the bench.

      Kings' Omri Casspi: Double-double off the bench Saturday

      Casspi scored 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt) with 11 rebounds, two assists and a steal in 32 minutes off the bench during Saturday's win over the Magic. Coach George Karl only used eight players on the night due to Rudy Gay's shoulder injury, giving Casspi plenty of run on the second unit one game after he made his first start of the season in place of the suspended DeMarcus Cousins. Over the last nine games, Casspi's averaging 12.3 points, 6.3 boards, 1.3 threes and 1.1 steals in 28.2 minutes a night, numbers which would make him useful in many leagues if he continues to see that much court time.

      Kings' Omri Casspi: In the starting lineup Thursday

      Casspi will start at small forward in Thursday's matchup with the Heat, Jason Ross of 1140 KHTK reports. With DeMarcus Cousins out because of a one-game suspension and Willie Cauley-Stein still coming off the bench, Casspi will enter the starting lineup at small forward, with Rudy Gay at the four and Kosta Koufos starting at the five. This marks the first start of the season for the seventh-year forward, who's currently boasting averages of 10.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 steal over 24 minutes per game. Casspi will likely return to a bench role for Saturday's game against the Magic, but could be in line for increased minutes Thursday while running with the starters.

      Kings' Omri Casspi: Sees 29 minutes Saturday

      Casspi (shoulder) played 29 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Warriors, scoring 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt) and providing eight rebounds and two assists. Casspi was nursing a right shoulder strain heading into Saturday's contest, but it didn't prevent him from logging 25-plus minutes for the second day in a row. With several players on the Kings banged up at the moment, Casspi should continue to see a healthy minutes load Monday against the Spurs.

      Kings' Omri Casspi: Probable with shoulder issue

      Casspi (shoulder) is probable for Saturday's game against Golden State, James Ham of CSN reports. Casspi scored 22 points to go with four rebounds in Friday's loss to Houston, but he emerged from the game with a strained right shoulder. The issue doesn't appear to be serious, however, and as of now he's trending in the direction of an active designation.

      Kings' Omri Casspi: Scores 22 points on Friday

      Casspi contributed 22 points (8-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and two steals in 33 minutes during the Kings' 116-110 loss versus the Kings on Friday. Casspi rarely hits the 30 minute mark on a consistent basis, but with DeMarcus Cousins sitting out with an injury and Rudy Gay struggling with foul trouble and his shot, Casspi stepped up big time on Friday. Expect the Israeli forward to continue coming off the bench, but his versatility allows for him to play multiple positions.

      Kings F Omri Casspi dealing with sore knee

      Kings forward Omri Casspi was held out of practice Wednesday with a sore knee, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports. After leaving with flu-like symptoms in an Oct. 8 preseason win over the Spurs, he felt well enough to return to the court Saturday, logging 10 points and four rebounds in a win over the Trail Blazers. However, it looks like he sustained the knee injury somewhere after that time. It's not clear when he'll be able to resume practicing.
