    Kings' Omri Casspi: Scores 16 points in loss to Cavs

    Casspi tallied 16 points (5-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, three steals, and one assist across 29 minutes in Monday's 120-100 loss to the Cavaliers. Casspi was denied the opportunity for increased run after Rudy Gay (ankle) was cleared to play shortly before the contest, but he still finished with his highest point total in five games. The forward isn't shooting the rock with much efficiency of late, but he's still managed to knock down at least one three-pointer in nine straight contests.

    Kings' Omri Casspi: Scores 13 points in 29 minutes

    Casspi totaled 13 points (6-16 FG, 1-6 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists, and one steal across 29 minutes in Sunday's 128-119 loss to the Celtics. Casspi was expected to see an elevated role Sunday with both Rudy Gay (ankle) and Ben McLemore (wrist) ruled out, but coach George Karl continued to deploy the 27-year-old off the bench. While Casspi did receive more shot attempts than usual with Gay and McLemore out of the picture, his playing time didn't notice a substantial increase, as Marco Belinelli (38 minutes) and James Anderson (18 minutes) appeared to be the primary beneficiaries of the two absences. It looks like Casspi's role will remain fairly static for the time being, but he's still probably worthy of a roster spot in most mid-sized or deeper formats.

    Kings' Omri Casspi: Scores 13 points Monday in return to bench

    Casspi supplied 13 points (4-10 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight boards, one assist, and one block across 32 minutes in Monday's 129-128 double-overtime loss to the Hornets. Casspi was back on the bench for this one with Rudy Gay (heel) returning from a two-game absence, but thanks to the two extra periods of action, Casspi didn't notice much of a drop in minutes or productivity. Gay was actually forced to exit the contest during the second overtime with a corneal abrasion and has already been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers, so it seems likely that Casspi will slot back in on the top unit for his third start in four games.

    Kings' Omri Casspi: Struggles in Saturday start

    Casspi totaled eight points (4-7 FG), five rebounds and an assist over 28 minutes in Saturday's 108-97 victory over the Pacers. The veteran received a second straight start in Rudy Gay's (heel) stead, but generated a lackluster performance. The lack of overall production may not be as surprising as it appears on the surface, considering that DeMarcus Cousins had his way with the Pacers frontcourt to the tune of 48 points. The reduction in overall involvement on offense resulted in the normally aggressive Casspi only taking seven shot attempts, after averaging 10 per game over the previous three contests. His three tries from beyond the arc, all misses, were a low for the month of Janaury as well, and resulted in Casspi failing to register a three-pointer for the first time since Dec. 10 against the Knicks. Despite the modest production, Casspi should be in line for additional opportunity if Gay continues to be sidelined for any more games.

    Kings' Omri Casspi: Starting Saturday

    Casspi will start Saturday's game against the Pacers, James Ham of CSN California reports. Entering the starting lineup for an ailing Rudy Gay (heel), Casspi has been tabbed for such a gig 16 times this season, during which he's averaged 14.9 points (on 51 percent shooting), 7.2 rebounds, 2.6 three-pointers, 1.7 assists, and 0.9 steals in 35 minutes.

    Kings' Omri Casspi: Tallies 13 points in Thursday start

    Casspi tallied 13 points (4-10 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists and five steals over 38 minutes in Thursday's 91-88 victory over the Hawks. The seven-year veteran got the starting call for the ailing Rudy Gay (heel), and provided solid production on both ends of the floor. Casspi's five steals were a season high, and he drained multiple three-pointers for the second time in three contests. If Gay is forced to miss any further time, Casspi could serve as an excellent source of multi-category fantasy production in all formats. During a month of December in which he averaged a robust 35.3 minutes per contest, the 27-year-old averaged 15.4 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists over 12 games.

    Kings' Omri Casspi: Will start Thursday

    Casspi is in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Hawks, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports. With Rudy Gay sitting out with a heel injury, Casspi is expected to move into the starting lineup in his place. Casspi is averaging 29.9 minutes per game this season, but could see a slight increase while running with the starting unit. He'll likely share the majority of the additional minutes with Marco Belinelli and Quincy Acy. Expect Casspi to move back to the bench as soon as Gay is healthy.

    Kings' Omri Casspi: Posts 17 points off bench in Saturday victory

    Casspi posted 17 points (6-9 FG, 5-8 3Pt), four rebounds and a steal over 30 minutes in Saturday's 110-103 victory over the Clippers. The seven-year veteran has now encouragingly posted progressively higher scoring totals in each of his three games since returning from a four-game absence due to a back injury. He was on fire from beyond the arc Saturday, managing his second-highest amount of three-pointers on the season. Casspi had received a string of starting opportunities in December--which he was largely productive in--but may come off the bench in a high-usage role for the time being. However, he's proven the ability to produce in relatively modest allotments of playing time in the past, making him a player to hold on to in season-long formats and a nice mid-tier option in daily leagues.

    Kings' Omri Casspi: Plays, but doesn't start Wednesday

    Casspi (back) came off the bench in his return from a four-game absence in Wednesday's 109-97 loss to the Pelicans, finishing with seven points (3-8 FG, 1-6 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists, and two blocks across 29 minutes. In a surprising decision, coach George Karl stuck with Quincy Acy as his starting power forward, but Casspi still ended up dominating the playing time at the position, seeing 29 minutes to Acy's nine. It's likely that Casspi will take back the starting job eventually, but even if he remains deployed in a bench role over the next few games, he'll still see starter-level playing time. Though he didn't shoot the ball particularly efficiently Wednesday, Casspi had been providing steady production in points, three-pointers, rebounds, and field-goal percentage prior to suffering the injury, so it's worthwhile for fantasy owners to exercise some patience with the forward while he gets acclimated.

    Kings' Omri Casspi: Probable for Wednesday

    Casspi (back) was back at practice on Tuesday and will play in Wednesday's game against the Pelicans barring any major setbacks, James Ham of CSNBayArea.com reports. Casspi has missed four straight games due to soreness in his upper back, however he is set to return to the rotation on Wednesday. He could see his minutes monitored to ensure no setbacks take place, if that's the case, look for Quincy Acy and Kosta Koufos to continue to see an increased workload.
