Casspi is expected to miss one-to-two weeks with a strained right plantaris tendon in his calf, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports.
Casspi suffered the injury during Monday's practice and after undergoing an MRI, he's been diagnosed with a strained tendon in his calf. He'll undergo extensive rehab over the next week or two, but if he's able to return to the court on the earlier side of his current projected timetable, he could be available by a Jan. 25 matchup with the Cavaliers. We should see Casspi's status updated as soon as he's able to rejoin team practices. Even when at full strength, it remains to be seen how involved Casspi will be, as he appears to have fallen into just a minor bench role, which heavily restricts his fantasy potential on most nights.
Casspi logged six minutes in Friday's 120-108 loss to the Cavaliers, finishing with two points (1-1 FG), one rebound and one assist.
Casspi has appeared in two consecutive games, but he still finds himself on the periphery of coach Dave Joerger's rotation. It appears the Cavs' tendency to roll out small-ball lineups may have been the only reason Casspi saw the floor, as Kosta Koufos, who is typically a staple in the rotation as either the starting center or top backup to DeMarcus Cousins, was held to a season-low six minutes. Casspi could very well fail to see the court Sunday against the Thunder, when the Kings do battle with Oklahoma City's two promising young centers, Steven Adams and Enes Kanter.
Casspi turned in two points (1-4 FG), five rebounds and one steal across 13 minutes in a 102-100 win over the 76ers on Monday.
After missing four games with an illness, Casspi dressed for Friday's tilt with the Timberwolves, but didn't see the floor, as coach Dave Joerger opted to give him another day off to recuperate. Though Casspi rejoined the rotation Monday, he saw only a limited role with Rudy Gay (hip) returning from injury and playing 36 minutes. Casspi will have to battle Matt Barnes and Anthony Tolliver for playing time behind Gay, but none of those reserves are likely to carry value outside of deeper leagues.
Cassspi (illness) will be available for Friday's game against the Timberwolves, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports.
