Labissiere (shoulder) will miss two-to-three weeks with a shoulder strain, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports. The Kings are being cautious with Labissiere, as they are looking to prevent a setback from occuring. He did see a specialist, however the injury doesn't seem to be overly serious. While Labissiere is out, Zach Randolph and Kosta Koufos will likely see more run.
Labissiere (shoulder) has been ruled out for both Friday's game against the Warriors and Saturday's matchup with the Mavericks, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Labissiere continues to work his way back from a strained left shoulder, but the Kings are going to be as cautious as possible with him and now expect to keep him out through the weekend. That means Labissiere will miss the team's upcoming back-to-back set, with his first shot to return to the court coming Monday against the Bulls. With Labissiere out, Zach Randolph and Kosta Koufos should be the primary beneficiaries in the frontcourt.
Labissiere (shoulder) will remain out for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Labissiere will miss a second consecutive game with a strained left shoulder, but he'll have two more off days to recover in advance of Friday's home matchup with Golden State. With both Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein out of the lineup Tuesday, the likes of Zach Randolph and Kosta Koufos could again pick up increased minutes, as was the case Sunday against San Antonio, when both players topped the 30-minute plateau.
Labissiere is dealing with a left shoulder strain and has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Spurs, Michael C. Wright of ESPN reports. It appears to be the same injury that costed him one game earlier in January, so this will certainly be a situation to monitor moving forward. With Willie Cauley-Stein (foot) also out, Zach Randolph (knee) should be in line for big minutes, while both Kosta Koufos and Georgios Papagiannis should see added playing time in the frontcourt as well. Labissiere's next opportunity to take the court will be Tuesday against the Pelicans.
Labissiere played 18 minutes in Thursday's win over Miami, finishing with zero points (0-2 FG), three rebounds, one assist and one block. Labissiere had been nursing a shoulder injury heading into Thursdays, so it's possible he was less than 100 percent, which would partially explain the lackluster performance. The 21-year-old has seen an uptick in playing time over the last few weeks and is averaging 23.5 minutes per game in the month of January. During that span, he's provided fantasy owners with averages of 9.9 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists.
