Casspi is averaging 5.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game over 22 games (two starts). It's uncertain if he'll actually play in New Orleans or have his contract bought out, as DeMarcus Cousins is clearly the trophy in this huge deal. If Casspi ends up in New Orleans he might fill the role of Langston Galloway, who was the backup shooting guard. He could also see some time at small forward, where New Orleans isn't quite as deep with only Solomon Hill in the way.
Casspi (foot) won't play in Tuesday's game against the Lakers or Wednesday's game against the Warriors, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports.
The Kings termed Casspi's injury as a right calf strain when he first succumbed to the issue back in mid-January, but they've since labeled the injury as both a right calf strain and plantaris tendon tear. Casspi's condition is said to be improving, but he'll be sidelined through the All-Star break in order to recover. Once Casspi is back in action, he could eat into the playing time of Matt Barnes and Anthony Tolliver.
Casspi (foot) is out for Sunday's contest against the Pelicans, James Ham of CSN California reports.
Casspi has been sidelined since Jan. 13, but will miss yet another game for the Kings, who desperately need his presence with Rudy Gay (Achilles) out for the season. His next chance to play comes Tuesday against the Lakers.
Casspi (foot) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Hawks, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento (KXTV) reports.
Earlier in the week Casspi had been targeting a Friday return from the foot injury that has sidelined him since Jan. 13, but he'll have to wait until at least Sunday's contest against the Pelicans until possibly seeing the floor. Casspi remaining sidelined until the All-Star break has still not been ruled out of the equation.
Casspi (foot) indicated his injury is feeling much better and is targeting a return for Friday's game against the Hawks, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports.
The Kings indicated earlier in February that they expected Casspi to remain sidelined until after the All-Star break, but he's reportedly made plenty of progress in his recovery from a foot strain and is pushing for a return sooner rather than later. Casspi was doing some sprints following Tuesday's practice, so it appears the foot is comfortable and he's already gearing up to get his conditioning back in order. He's currently targeting a return Friday, although considering his original timetable, it wouldn't be surprising if Casspi ultimately was held out through the weekend.
