DeMarcus Cousins, C2/26/2015 4:28:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins missed Thursday's practice due to an ankle issue and should be considered questionable for Friday versus San Antonio.
Insight: Cousins is a top-five fantasy asset and any loss of production from the center is a disaster. He's averaging 23.7 ppg, 12.2 rpg, 3.3 apg, 1.4 spg, 1.7 bpg.
Ray McCallum, G2/26/2015 3:33:00 PM
Description: Kings guard Ray McCallum has posted double-digit points in four of the last five games.
Insight: With Darren Collison likely done for the season, it's McCallum and Andre Miller left to cover the PG position. MaCallum is averaging 9.8 ppg, 3.4 rpg and 5.0 apg over the five-game span.
Darren Collison, G2/26/2015 3:32:00 PM
Description: Kings guard Darren Collison is expected to undergo hip surgery Tuesday and will miss the remainder of the season, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo.

Description: Kings guard Darren Collison did not play Friday against Boston and will miss Saturday's contest with the Clippers as well.

Darren Collison, G2/20/2015 4:33:00 PM
Description: Kings guard Darren Collison will not play Friday against Boston.
Insight: With Collison out, Ray McCallum, David Stockton and just-acquired Andre Miller will have to cover the position.
Andre Miller, PG2/19/2015 12:33:00 PM
Description: Andre Miller is headed to Sacramento in exchange for Ramon Sessions.
Insight: It's a trade of backup point guards. Neither has fantasy value when their starters are healthy. Currently, Darren Collison is dealing with a hip injury so Miller might is more time right off the bat.
Darren Collison, G2/18/2015 10:38:00 PM
Description: Kings guard Darren Collison was limited in practice on Wednesday according to the Sacramento Bee.

Rudy Gay, F2/18/2015 10:36:00 PM
Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay is expected to play more power forward under new coach George Karl according to the Sacramento Bee.
Insight: This should help Gay get to the foul line more often. Gay will be playing next to DeMarcus Cousins in the front court. Ben McLemore, Omri Casspi and perhaps Nik Stauskas will all see more playing time at small forward.
DeMarcus Cousins, C2/11/2015 10:28:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins left his mark on Wednesday night.

Darren Collison, G2/11/2015 2:46:00 PM
Description: Kings guard Darren Collison will not play on Wednesday versus the Bucks.
Insight: The Kings are staying cautious, giving Collison eight days to recover over the All-Star break rather than having him play on Wednesday. Ramon Sessions will start on Wednesday.

Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay played very well during Tuesday's loss against the Bulls.
Insight: He went 10-of-18 from the field and 3-of-5 from the line for 24 points, seven rebounds, five assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, and three turnovers. Gay is a top-40 option in standard leagues.
Rudy Gay, F2/10/2015 7:21:00 PM
Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay will play on Tuesday versus the Bulls.
Insight: This is great news. Sacramento would not rush Gay back right before the All-Star break if he wasn't 100 percent. Owners can start Gay as they normally would. Omri Casspi will return to the bench.
Darren Collison, G2/10/2015 11:13:00 AM
Description: Kings guard Darren Collison (hip flexor strain) has missed the last two games and has been downgraded to out for Tuesday's game against Chicago.

Description: Kings guard Darren Collison (hip flexor strain) has missed the last two games and is questionable for Tuesday's game against Chicago.

Rudy Gay, F2/8/2015 7:01:00 PM
Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay will not play on Sunday due to a sore left foot according to Kings reporter James Ham.
Insight: Gay hurt his foot on Saturday and played through the injury with little success, going 1-for-8 from the field. Gay should be listed as questionable for Tuesday and Wednesday with the possibility that the Kings just hold him out through the All-Star break.
DeMarcus Cousins, C2/8/2015 9:18:00 AM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins recorded a double-double during Saturday's loss against the Jazz.
Insight: He had 27 points and 10 boards, with two blocks and four turnovers. Cousins also shot 10-of-24 fromt he field and 7-of-11 from theline. He is rewarding owners this season.
Darren Collison, G2/7/2015 3:05:00 PM
Description: Kings guard Darren Collison (hip flexor strain) has been downgraded to out for Saturday's game against Utah.
Insight: Ramon Sessions and Ray McCallum saw increased time in the second half Thursday, but didn't do much with it. Neither can match Collison's production (16.1 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 5.6 apg).

Description: Kings backup guard Ramon Sessions could be in for increased playing time if Darren Collison's abdominal strain keeps him on the sidelines.
Insight: He's averaging just 5.3 ppg, 1.7 rpg, 2.4 apg this season and would share the increased workload with Ray McCallum. In Thursday's game it was McCallum taking 10 shots to Sessions' four.
Darren Collison, G2/6/2015 9:35:00 AM
Description: Kings guard Darren Collison suffered an abdominal strain in the second quarter on Thursday.
Insight: Collison has been a productive fantasy option in 2014-15 (16.1 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 5.6 apg). Ramon Sessions and Ray McCallum saw increased time in the second half, but didn't do much with it.
DeMarcus Cousins, CHot2/5/2015 11:28:00 AM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is in one of those streaks where he's doing everything for Sacramento and his fantasy owners.
Insight: Over the past three games he's averaging 22.3 ppg, 14.3 rpg, 3.7 apg, 3.7 apg, 1.7 blocks. The only things he doesn't do is shoot three pointers or sell popcorn.

Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is listed as probable for Saturday's game versus the Pacers according to NBA.com.
Insight: Cousins played through a left ankle sprain on Friday, but it wouldn't be surprising if he is somewhat limited in the second game of a back-to-back set. Cousins, though, is a must-start if he plays.

Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins recorded a double-double versus the Cavaliers on Friday.
Insight: Cousins had 21 points and 13 rebounds. He shot an excellent 11-of-12 from the free-throw line. Cousins also had five steals and four assists.

Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay scored 22 points versus the Raptors on Wednesday.
Insight: Gay was 8-of-17 from the field and hit two 3-pointers. He also had three assists and three rebounds. Gay is a decent fantasy option as he is averaging over 20 ppg and nearly 6.0 rpg and 4.0 apg.

DeMarcus Cousins, C1/19/2015 12:04:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) did not play on Saturday and is questionable for Monday's game against Portland.
Insight: Jason Thompson and Derrick Williams would see more court time if Cousins can't go. Cousins is an elite fantasy option and fantasy owners are being hurt by his multiple injuries this season.
DeMarcus Cousins, C1/17/2015 8:38:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) will not play on Saturday.
Insight: He was questionable coming in, but will not be able to suit up. Jason Thompson, Ryan Hollins, and Reggie Evans will see extended time, but will have a tough matchup against Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan.
DeMarcus Cousins, C1/17/2015 4:51:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is questionable for Saturday's game due to a right ankle injury.
Insight: Cousins played Friday, but he was obviously not 100 percent. Playing versus Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan on Saturday will probably motivate Cousins to suit up, but he won't be 100 percent again.
Rudy Gay, F1/17/2015 4:49:00 PM
Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay is questionable for Saturday's game versus the Clippers.
Insight: The Kings called up Quincy Miller for this game, so that probably means Gay has little chance to play. He missed Friday's game with a left knee capsule injury, and there is a chance he misses even more games besides Saturday.

Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins recorded a double-double on Friday versus the Heat.
Insight: Cousins led the Kings with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Cousins was awful from the field, 4-for-12, but made up for it going 9-for-9 at the line. He also had five assists although he did turn it over eight times.

Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside will start against the Warriors on Wednesday.
Insight: Whiteside has a great matchup and has been playing a crazy amount of minutes lately. It will be interesting to see if it continues, but for Wednesday, Whiteside is a great play.
DeMarcus Cousins, CHot1/14/2015 10:09:00 AM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins was a monster during Tuesday's overtime loss versus Dallas.
Insight: He had 32 points, 16 boards, nine assists, two steals, one block, but also nine turnovers. Cousins fouled out at the end of regulation and was not available for overtime, hampering what could have been an even bigger line.
Rudy Gay, F1/13/2015 10:55:00 PM
Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay left Tuesday's game versus the Mavericks with a left knee strain and will not return according to James Ham of ESPN and FOXSports1.
Insight: It doesn't sound good. Gay will undergo some tests so stay tuned. If he missed time, Derrick Williams and Nik Stauskas will become better fantasy options.
DeMarcus Cousins, CHot1/12/2015 9:45:00 AM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins posted another full box score for fantasy owners with 26 points, 13 rebounds, five assists, four steals and three blocks.

Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay posted a third consecutive 20-plus point effort Sunday against Cleveland.

Insight: Whiteside was a mismatch for the Clippers defense and he took advantage with a season-high 23 points and 16 rebounds. By no means should fantasy owners jump to the waiver wire to pick Whiteside up, but we will keep an eye on him.

Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins srecorded a double-double during Friday's loss versus Sacramento.

Insight: He has avoided a suspension and should be in all lineups.
DeMarcus Cousins, C12/31/2014 4:29:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins recorded his third straight double-double on Wednesday, but it was hardly a great game for the Sacramento center.
Insight: Cousins scored 11 points and grabbed 11 rebounds but shot only 29.4 percent from the field. It was Cousins worst shooting game since opening night. Oh, and the referees also ejected him for two technical fouls.
DeMarcus Cousins, C12/29/2014 10:07:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins had a very efficient fantasy night on Monday.
Insight: Cousins scored 24 points, one shy of the team lead, and had 13 rebounds. Cousins was 9-of-12 from the field and 6-for-9 at the free-throw line. Rudy Gay scored 25 points, but shot 9-of-21 from the field. Cousins also had four assists, two blocks and a steal.

Insight: Cousins made 14-of-27 shots to carry the Kings to an overtime victory. He also recorded a double-double with 11 rebounds and shot 10-for-11 at the line. Cousins is a top center option when healthy.
DeMarcus Cousins, C12/27/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is questionable for Saturday's game against the Knicks after missing Friday night due to illness.
Insight: Cousins had a stomach illness. He's a fantasy stud when he plays (23.9 ppg, 12.3 rpg, 2.7 apg, 1.2 spg, 1.5 bpg), but he's missed 11 of the last 14 games.
DeMarcus Cousins, CHot12/26/2014 5:20:00 PM

Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay (Achilles tendinitis) played well Thursday night.
Insight: Gay has been playing through some Achilles tendinitis, but shot 9-of-15 for 20 points with nine rebounds, six assists and a steal in 39 minutes. Make sure he's back in your lineup.
DeMarcus Cousins, CHot12/19/2014 10:14:00 AM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins played Thursday and played well.
Insight: If Cousins was limited in minutes, we didn't see it. He played 32:49 minutes in all, including all of the fourth quarter and did his usual damage with 27 points, 11 rebounds and five assists. He's a fantasy stud and a must start.
DeMarcus Cousins, C12/18/2014 8:46:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins will start with a minutes limit on Thursday.
Insight: Cousins has been out since Novemeber, so this is great news. He likely needs a little bit more time to get back into game shape, which is why he will be held to limited minutes. Even if he only plays 20 minutes, Cousins is a must-start in fantasy.
Rudy Gay, F12/18/2014 5:44:00 PM
Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Bucks.
Insight: Gay has been playing through some Achilles tendinitis, so we expect him to give it a go again. Gay should be in all lineups.

DeMarcus Cousins, C12/17/2014 4:45:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins (illness) practiced on Wednesday and is expected to play on Thursday.

Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay scored a team-high 22 points during Tuesday's loss against the Thunder.
Insight: He shot 8-of-20 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line. Gay also had six rebouds, three assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, one block, and three turnovers. He is a top-35 option.

Description: Sacramento SF Omri Casspi is doubtful for Tuesday's game against Oklahoma City due to a sore left knee.
Insight: Casspi has already missed the last four games. He's not been fantasy worthy this season averaging 8.2 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 1.4 apg and he doesn't shoot the three-ball well (2-of-14).
Rudy Gay, F12/14/2014 10:01:00 AM
Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay scored a team-high 20 points in the loss to the Pistons on Saturday.
Insight: Gay only went 6-of-22 from the field overall but was helped by a 4-for-7 night from the 3-point line. Gay also chipped in eight rebounds and eight assists so combine that with the 20 points and 3-pointers, fantasy owners will gladly take it.
Rudy Gay, F12/12/2014 10:46:00 AM
Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay shot an ugly 4-of-18 for 13 points against Houston.
Insight: Gay did other things which made it a little more palatable. He rang up eight rebounds, eight assists and three steals.

Description: Kings guard Darren Collison led his team with 24 points and seven assists in Thursday's loss to the Rockets.
Insight: Collison made 10-of-20 shots and added three rebounds and three steals, but we don't like the six turnovers. With DeMarcus Cousins sidelined (illness) there are a lot of shots available.
DeMarcus Cousins, C12/11/2014 2:22:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins (illness) is still not ready to return to the lineup.
Insight: Cousins (23.5 ppg, 12.6 rpg, 2.4 apg, 1.1 spg, 1.5 bpg) is dealing with a viral infection. There is no timetable for his return which could end up going through the end of December. It's a disaster for his fantasy owners.

Description: Kings guard Darren Collison led his team with 26 points and six assists in Tuesday's loss to the Lakers.
Insight: Collison made 11-of-18 shots, including 2-of-3 from the 3-point line. Unfortunately, he curiously made just 25 percent from the free-throw line. Collison is not a great free-throw shooter, but he still shoots 76.5 percent from the line, over 50 percent higher than he shot Tuesday.
Jason Thompson, F12/7/2014 10:40:00 AM
Description: Kings forward Jason Thompson went 9-of-12 from the field on Saturday night.
Insight: He finished with 18 points, nine rebounds, foru assists, and one turnover. However, he is averaging just 4.9 ppg and 6.4 rpg, making him an irrelevant option.
Darren Collison, G12/7/2014 10:38:00 AM
Description: Kings guard Darren Collison scored a team-high 22 points during Saturday's loss to the Magic.
Insight: He was 6-of-14 from the field, 7-of-9 from the line, and 3-of-6 from beyond the arc. Collison also had four assists, three rebounds, and two turnovers. He has played well during his first season in Sacramento, and is currently a borderline top-50 player.
Jason Terry, G12/6/2014 8:06:00 PM
Description: Rockets guard Jason Terry will start on Saturday against the Suns.
Insight: This is noteworthy with Patrick Beverley returning from injury. However, this could be the last game Terry starts for the foreseeable future.
Darren Collison, G12/6/2014 9:04:00 AM
Description: Kings guard Darren Collison scored 20 points in the one-point victory over the Pacers on Friday.
Insight: Collison had a great game, eclipsing his season totals in every category. He had six rebounds, six assists, four steals to go with his 42 percent shooting. Collison should continue to be a star in his first season in Sacramento.

DeMarcus Cousins, C12/3/2014 4:22:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins (illness) will not play on Friday or Saturday.

Jason Terry, G11/29/2014 8:47:00 PM

Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay nearly posted a triple-double in Friday's loss to the Spurs.

Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins will not play against the Spurs on Friday.
Insight: The flu is going through the Kings locker room, and Cousins is the latest victim. Sacramento doesn't really have a center to replace Cousins, so it will be a team effort. Jason Thompson should get most of the minutes, but with many others in the mix, no one if fantasy relevant on Friday.

Rudy Gay, F11/26/2014 3:05:00 PM
Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay will not play again on Wednesday due to his Achilles injury.
Insight: Gay and Darren Collison will both not suit up Wednesday. Omri Casspi scored 22 points playing in place of Gay on Tuesday, so he is a great daily pickup. The Kings said they hope Gay can return on Friday according to NBA.com.

Ramon Sessions, G11/25/2014 1:51:00 PM
Description: Kings guard Ramon Sessions is questionable for Tuesday's game against New Orleans while dealing with a right knee sprain.

Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay is questionable for Tuesday's game against New Orleans due right Achilles tendinitis.
Insight: Gay has been playing through the problem and is posted solid numbers this season - 21.1 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 3.8 apg, 1.1 spg. As long as he doesn't have a setback, he's good to go.

Insight: He was 11-of-15 from the field and 9-of-10 from the line for 31 points, 18 rebounds, two assists, two blocks, one steal, and three turnovers. If Cousins can keep his head on straight, he will continue to produce for owners all season long.
Rudy Gay, F11/21/2014 9:30:00 AM
Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay was questionable for Thursday's game against Chicago due right Achilles tendinitis, but played well.
Insight: Gay went 7-of-11 from the field for 20 points along with seven rebounds and three assists. We did see him with a heating pad on the foot in the second half, so he'll still have to be watched for upcoming games to make sure he's ready to go.
Darren Collison, GHot11/21/2014 9:26:00 AM
Description: Kings guard Darren Collison scored 17 points, shooting 5-of-10 from the field and added 12 assists and six rebounds.
Insight: It's Collison's second straight double-double and we like how this is going. Considering where he was drafted, he's been a "steal."

Insight: He been playing through a hip issue, but still posted 22 points. 14 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block. He's a fantasy stud.

Description: Kings guard Darren Collison practiced on Wednesday and plans to return to the court on Thursday against the Grizzlies.
Insight: Collison warmed up after being a game-time decision on Tuesday, but the team sat him. Collison has been tremendous this season playing with DeMarcus Cousins. He is a must-own in all formats.
Ramon Sessions, G11/12/2014 10:55:00 AM
Description: Kings guard Ramon Sessions scored 18 points in his spot start in place of the injured Darren Collison on Tuesday.
Insight: Sessions shot 6-of-9 with two 3-pointers and three rebounds. Collison is listed day-to-day, so Sessions' fantasy value is only useful on a plug-in basis.
Rudy Gay, FHot11/12/2014 9:41:00 AM
Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay scored a team-high 26 points against the Mavericks.
Insight: Unfortunately for the Kings, a ferocious Dallas comeback, in which the Mavericks outscored the Kings, 30-15, in the third quarter, spoiled Gay's great night. Gay had eight rebounds and eight assists but also had seven turnovers.
Ramon Sessions, G11/11/2014 8:48:00 PM
Description: Kings guard Ramon Sessions will start on Tuesday in place of the injured Darren Collison.
Insight: Collison has a stiff shoulder, so Sessions gets the spot start. For daily leagues, Sessions is a decent plug-in, but for weekly or roto leagues, it probably isn't worth grabbing Sessions for one game.

Description: Kings guard Darren Collison scored 16 points in Sacramento's double-overtime victory over the Suns, 114-112.

Cousins is averaging 24.2 ppg, 11.8 rpg and 1.3 bpg through six games. The Kings are off to a surprisingly fast start at 5-1.

Insight: He was 13-of-19 from the field and 11-of-13 from the line for 40 points friday night and came back with 25 points, seven rebounds and six assists on Sunday.

Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay was outstanding in Friday's win over Portland.
Insight: He was 13-of-19 from the field and 11-of-13 from the line, for 40 points. Gay also had eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, and zero turnovers. What a night for Sacramento's small forward.
Darren Collison, GHot10/31/2014 1:46:00 PM
Description: Kings guard Darren Collison was very good on opening night, posting 13 points, four rebounds, eight assists, five steals and a block.
Insight: In fact, the only fault we can find is a 4-of-12 shooting night, but this bodes well for his becoming a top point guard who can fill up a box score.
Ramon Sessions, G10/25/2014 5:25:00 PM
Description: Kings guard Ramon Sessions should not be forgotten about heading into this season.
Insight: He has career averages of 11.7 points per game and 4.7 assists per game, and after averaging 15.8 points per game two seasons ago, Sessions easily holds value. He will most likely go undrafted, but owners should monitor his playing time early in the season.
Darren Collison, G10/25/2014 5:22:00 PM
Description: Kings guard Darren Collison has a chance to be a steal in fantasy drafts.
Insight: With Isaiah Thomas gone, Collison will be starting at point guard, and will have a great chance to improve on his 11.4 points per game, 3.7 assists per game, and 1,2 steals per game, averages from last season. Owners should think about drafting Collison beginning in the 10th round.
Ben McLemore, G10/25/2014 5:20:00 PM
Description: Sacramento guard Ben McLemore is nothing more than a late-round pick heading into the season.
Insight: He averaged only 8.8 points per game, 2.9 rebounds per game, 1.0 assists per game, and shot 38 percent from the field. McLemore may raise those numbers slightly, but with rookie Nik Stauskas behind him on the depth chart, the numbers for both players will most likely be inconsistent.
Rudy Gay, F10/25/2014 5:17:00 PM
Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay should continue to a valuable fantasy player.
Insight: In 55 games with Sacramento, Gay averaged 20.1 points per game, 5.5 rebounds per game, 3.1 assists per game, 1.2 steals game, while shooting 48 percent from the field. These numbers are somewhat underrated, and as a result owners should not be afraid to pull the trigger on Gay in the third round.
DeMarcus Cousins, C10/25/2014 5:13:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is in line for a monster season.
Insight: After averaging 22.7 points per game, 11.7 rebounds per game, 1.5 steals per game, 1.3 blocks per game, while shooting 50 percent from the field last season, Cousins should easily be drafted toward the end of the first round.
Jason Thompson, F10/25/2014 5:11:00 PM
Description: Kings forward Jason Thompson will open up the season as the team's starting power forward.
Insight: He still is not a fantays-relevant player. At the very least, owners con monitor his prgress early on, but Thompson should remain undrafted.
DeMarcus Cousins, C8/15/2014 3:43:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins limped off the court in Thursday's Team USA practice, but the MRI revealed no structural damage.
Insight: Team USA and Sacramento fans along with fantasy owners can relax.The 23-year-old was a fantasy stud, averaging 22.7 points, 11.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.3 blocks in 71 games last season. He's also the best big man on Team USA and without him the team would be very small.
Isaiah Thomas, G7/11/2014 7:46:00 PM
Description: According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Kings restricted free agent PG Isaiah Thomas has agreed to a four-year, $27 million offer sheet with the Phoenix Suns.
Insight: The Kings will reportedly agree to a sign-and-trade for a $7 million trade exception and Alex Oriakhi. Sacramento didn't want to commit to the 5-foot-9 Thomas even though he averaged 20.3 ppg and 6.3 apg last season. The Suns are still expected to keep RFA Eric Bledsoe, so Thomas will become a third guard in 2014-15.
Darren Collison, G7/3/2014 12:53:00 PM
Description: Darren Collison has agreed to a three-year, $16 million contract with the Sacramento Kings, according to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times.
Insight: Collison averaged 25.9 minutes, 11.4 points, 3.7 assists, 2.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals with the Clippers last season, though he was much better in 35 starts (14.8 ppg, 5.3 apg, 2.5 rpg, 1.5 spg). Collison said he hopes to compete for a starting job and he may just do that if the Kings choose to let restricted free agent Isaiah Thomas walk. The Kings will be the fifth team the 26-year-old Collison has played for in six seasons in the NBA.
Rudy Gay, F6/22/2014 4:40:00 PM
Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay has picked up his player option for next season. SOURCE: Yahoo Sports
Insight: He'll wait until 2015 to become a free agent. Gay (20.0 ppg in 2013-14) seems to enjoy playing in Sacramento and could be willing to sign an extension later this offseason.
Isaiah Thomas, G4/22/2014 8:57:00 PM
Description: Sacramento will extend a qualifying offer to point guard Isaiah Thomas this offseason. SOURCE: Jonathan Santiago, Cowbell Kingdom
Insight: That means that he'll be a restricted free agent and the team can match any offer he receives from another team. After the season Thomas (20.3 ppg, 6.3 apg) had in 2013-14, the Kings would have been crazy to let him walk.
Isaiah Thomas, G4/16/2014 9:32:00 PM
Description: Sacramento guard Isaiah Thomas is active for Wednesday's regular season finale against Phoenix. SOURCE: James Ham, Cowbell Kingdom
Insight: It's his second game back from a quad injury. He's one of three Kings averaging over 20 ppg this season (DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay).

Description: Kings forward Rudy Gay is back in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Phoenix. SOURCE: James Ham, Cowbell Kingdom

Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins will be suspended for Wednesday's game against the Suns without pay for receiving his 16th technical foul of the season, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports.
Insight: Cousins has averaged a monstrous 27.9 points, 12.3 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.4 blocks over his last eight games, but he let his temper get the better of him again on Sunday and he'll miss the season finale. That 23-year-old will finish with averages of 22.7 points, 11.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.3 blocks in 71 games this season.
Isaiah Thomas, G4/13/2014 8:47:00 PM

DeMarcus Cousins, C4/12/2014 10:32:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins notched 32 points, 12 boards, five assists, two blocks and a pair of steals Saturday in a loss to the Clippers.
Insight: Don't get too excited. The 32 points came on just 12-of-27 shooting (44.4 percent). Still, you have to respect Boogie's consistency. That was the 23-year-old's seventh consecutive double-double.
Isaiah Thomas, G4/12/2014 9:29:00 PM
Description: Sacramento point guard Isaiah Thomas is hoping to return Wednesday for the team's season finale against Phoenix. SOURCE: Jason Jones, Sacramento Bee

Description: Kings guard Isaiah Thomas (bruised quad) already has been ruled out for Saturday's game and is doubtful for Sunday, according to Sean Cunningham of News 10 Sacramento.
Insight: Thomas (20.7 ppg, 6.4 apg) has missed nine straight games. Ray McCallum has been a marathon man with Thomas out, averaging 45.1 minutes, 14.4 points, 7.2 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game.

Rudy Gay, F4/9/2014 9:25:00 PM
Description: Sacramento small forward Rudy Gay (back) is now out Wednesday against the Trail Blazers, according to James Ham of cowbellkingdom.com.
Insight: Gay was expected to play after he sat out Tuesday's game with a sore back, but he'll miss another one. His wife is also due to give birth, so he may miss Saturday's game at Los Angeles even if his back condition improves.
Reggie Evans, F4/9/2014 8:46:00 PM
Description: Kings power forward Reggie Evans (back) is expected to return Wednesday against the Blazers, according to Sean Cunningham of News 10 Sacramento.

DeMarcus Cousins, C4/9/2014 9:27:00 AM
Description: Boogie Cousins paced the Kings with 24 points, 14 rebounds and two blocks Tuesday in a loss to OKC.
Insight: Cousins (22.3 ppg, 11.6 rpg) is pretty much a guaranteed double-double any time he steps on the court. He's certainly deserving of making the All-NBA team, though voters might pass over him because Sacramento hasn't had a good season (27-51, third-worst record in the Western Conference).
Rudy Gay, F4/8/2014 9:44:00 PM
Description: Sacramento small forward Rudy Gay (back) is officially out Tuesday, according to Sean Cunningham of News10 Sacramento.

Description: Sacramento small forward Rudy Gay has a back injury and may not play Tuesday, according to the Sacramento Bee's Jason Jones.

Insight: The rebounding specialist has averaged 21 minutes, 4.4 points, 7.2 boards and 0.8 steals over his last 12 games (all starts). Jason Thompson will start in his place and Derrick Williams also will see more minutes.

Description: Kings guard Isaiah Thomas (bruised quad) will miss his eighth straight game Tuesday against the Thunder, according to James Ham of cowbellkingdom.com.

Rudy Gay, F4/7/2014 8:30:00 PM
Description: Sacramento small forward Rudy Gay may leave the team to be with his wife, who is nine months pregnant. SOURCE: Sacramento Bee
Insight: That puts his status in question for Tuesday's game against OKC. Derrick Williams (8.1 ppg, 4.2 rpg) is likely to start at small forward if and when Gay goes on paternity leave.

Description: Kings guard Isaiah Thomas has been out almost two weeks with a bruised quad and may not make it back before the end of the regular season. SOURCE: Sacramento Bee

Insight: Cousins' production -- 22.2 ppg, 11.7 rpg, 2.8 apg, 1.5 spg, 1.3 bpg -- is usually irreplaceable so hopefully he can return soon. Derrick Williams picked up extra playing time Sunday and made the most of it - 26 points, 11 rebounds.
Derrick Williams, F3/16/2014 9:43:00 PM
Description: Kings forward Derrick Williams took advantage of DeMarcus Cousins' absence due to knee tendinitis Sunday to score 26 points and grab 11 rebounds.
Insight: Williams had a similar game on Feb. 28, putting up 26 points and 12 rebounds, but he followed that up with a high of 10 points in his last eight games. The Kings have been rotating Williams, Reggie Evans and Jason Thompson at power forward and none of them really has fantasy value when Cousins is healthy because he's such a high-usage player. If Cousins remains out Williams may be able to put up some fantasy-worthy numbers, but nothing close to what he did Sunday.
Isaiah Thomas, GHot3/16/2014 9:42:00 PM
Description: Kings point guard Isaiah Thomas has scored 20+ points in three straight games.

Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins couldn't find his stroke Tuesday against Detroit (5-for-15) but he made up for it by earning 14 rebounds and six blocked shots.

DeMarcus Cousins, C3/9/2014 9:25:00 PM
Description: Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins had everything working Sunday against Brooklyn.
Insight: His teammates didn't (the Kings lost by 15) but that's a different story. Boogie totaled 28 points and 20 rebounds though it would have been better without the six turnovers he committed. Cousins' streak of 20-point games is now at five in a row.

Description: Sacramento will be without veteran power forward Carl Landry for the remainder of the season, according to james Ham of cowbellkingdom.com.
Insight: Landry torn a meniscus in right knee. Even when healthy, he wasn't much of a fantasy option (4.2 ppg, 3.2 rpg in 18 contests). His minutes will go to Jason Thompson and Derrick Williams.
Royce White, F3/6/2014 4:47:00 PM
Description: The Kings have signed controversial forward Royce White to a ten-day contract. SOURCE: Kings on Twitter
Insight: White will get his feet wet in the D-League and depending on how that goes, he could get another ten-day contract with the big club. Even if White sticks, he's not likely to be a major fantasy asset.

Carl Landry, F3/3/2014 1:56:00 PM
Description: Kings forward Carl Landry missed Saturday's game against the T-Wolves and is questionable for Monday's game against New Orleans.
Insight: Landry has been battling a sore knee. Jason Thompson (7.7 ppg, 6.4 rpg) and Derrick Williams (8.9 ppg, 4.2 rpg) should both see more minutes in Landry's absence.
DeMarcus Cousins, C3/2/2014 9:20:00 AM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins had a big game Saturday in his return from a one-game suspension.
Insight: Boogie went off for 21 points, 17 rebounds and three blocked shots, though it wasn't enough to beat Minnesota (108-97). Fantasy owners should be aware that Cousins is one technical away from another suspension. We'll see if he can keep his cool Monday against the Pelicans.
Carl Landry, F3/1/2014 9:36:00 PM
Description: Kings forward Carl Landry is out for Saturday's game against the T-Wolves. SOURCE: James Ham, Cowbell Kingdom
Insight: Landry has been battling a sore knee. With averages of just 4.2 ppg and 3.2 rpg, Landry hasn't done much to impress fantasy owners. Jason Thompson (7.7 ppg, 6.4 rpg) and Derrick Williams (9.0 ppg, 4.3 rpg) should both see more minutes in Landry's absence.
DeMarcus Cousins, C3/1/2014 12:25:00 PM
Description: Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins served his one-game suspension and should be back in Saturday's lineup.
Insight: It's a shame such a talented player (22.3 ppg, 11.5 rpg, 2.9 apg) can't control his emotions. This isn't the last time this is likely to happen.
Carl Landry, F2/28/2014 9:29:00 PM
Description: Sacramento power forward Carl Landry (knee) will miss Friday's game against the Lakers, according to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com.
Insight: Landry (4.2 ppg) was the projected starter at power forward earlier today with DeMarcus Cousins serving a one-game suspension, but Derrick Williams was announced as the actual starter and now Landry won't even play.
Derrick Williams, F2/28/2014 3:46:00 PM
Description: Kings forward Derrick Williams will start at the No. 4 at Jason Thompson at No. 5 with starter DeMarcus Cousins suspended for one game.
Insight: In 11 starts this season Williams is averaging 12.8 ppg, 7.6 rpg, 1.3 apg and worthy of a fantasy start if needed. This is a one-game opportunity only.
Jimmer Fredette, G2/27/2014 4:54:00 PM
Description: Jimmer Fredette's buyout with the Kings is official, according to nba.com.
Insight: The Kings took Fredette 10th overall in 2011 and proceeded to play him 15 minutes per game the next two and a half seasons. He has averaged an impressive 16.8 points and 2.5 threes per 36 minutes in his career and may be able to establish some fantasy value as a 3-point gunner if he lands with the right organization.
DeMarcus Cousins, C2/27/2014 4:00:00 PM
Description: Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins has been suspended for a game and fined $20,000 for throwing a punch and then verbally abusing the referees. He'll miss Friday's game.
Insight: Cousins is a ticking timebomb and fantasy owners who selected him knew it. Now its time to pay the piper. It's a shame such a talented player (22.3 ppg, 11.5 rpg, 2.9 apg) can't control his emotions.
