Kings' Rudy Gay: MRI confirms full tear of Achilles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

An MRI on Thursday confirmed Gay suffered a fully torn left Achilles during Wednesday's game against the Pacers, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 in Sacramento reports. Gay will undergo surgery and miss the remainder of the 2016-17 season.

The MRI confirmed the Kings' worst fears after Gay had to be carried off the court Wednesday night. The forward, who was averaging 18.7 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game, will undergo surgery in the coming days and is expected to face a lengthy recovery that could stretch into the beginning of next season. The injury is particularly troublesome given Gay's status as a potential free agent this summer. The veteran was expected to opt out and seek a new, longer-term deal, but given the severity of the injury, he'll now have to consider exercising his $14.3 million player option to remain in Sacramento in 2017-18. The Kings and Gay will cross that bridge when they get there, but in the immediate future, the likes of Omri Casspi (calf), Matt Barnes and Anthony Tolliver will all see increased minutes, with Barnes likely to move into the starting lineup, initially.

Kings' Matt Barnes: Plays 20 minutes off bench in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes finished with seven points (2-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with four assists and four rebounds across 20 minutes in Wednesday's 106-100 loss against the Pacers.

Barnes is likely to see an increased role in the offense, either off of the bench or as a starter, with Rudy Gay expected to miss the rest of the season due to what is feared to be a torn Achilles' tendon. He is worth scooping up in deeper rotisserie formats since he can help out in multiple categories.

Kings' DeMarcus Cousins: Posts triple-double in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins finished with 25 points (7-19 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 10-14 FT) to go along with 12 rebounds, 10 assists and three blocked shots in Wednesday's 106-100 loss against Indiana.

Cousins finished with his fifth-career triple-double. Boogie has been a man on fire in January, averaging 24.7 points, 10.8 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.5 blocked shots over his past six outings. That's the good news. The bad news is that the team likely lost Rudy Gay for the season due to a torn Achilles' tendon, and Cousins could be facing increased defensive pressure and double teams in the coming weeks. He'll still be a must-start fantasy option and an offensive force against lesser teams, but the top defensive teams will make things much rougher on him.

Kings' Garrett Temple: Sees extended minutes off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Temple finished with nine points (4-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt) to go along with four rebounds and three assists in 29 minutes off of the bench in Wednesday's 106-100 loss against the Pacers.

Temple is likely to see a huge bump in minutes, and perhaps a move into the starting five, as Rudy Gay left with what is feared to be a torn Achilles' tendon. If Gay is lost for the season, Temple would have a sizable role down the stretch, whether he is starting or coming off the bench. Matt Barnes and Anthony Tolliver also figure to see more minutes in Gay's stead, but Temple is the one to target off of the waiver wire.

Kings' Rudy Gay: Suffers potential torn Achillies, MRI on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Kings medical staff indicated that Gay may have suffered a torn left Achilles' tendon in Wednesday's game against the Pacers, but will undergo an MRI on Thursday to confirm, Marc J. Spears of ESPN reports.

A torn Achilles would likely spell the end of the season for Gay, who recently returned from a hip injury. The veteran has had a nice season for the Kings thus far, seeing a bit of a resurgence with 18.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 0.9 blocks per contest over 29 affairs this season. More on his status should surface following the MRI on Thursday, but early indications aren't promising.
