Rudy Gay (right hip flexor strain) and Omri Casspi (illness) are officially doubtful for Tuesday’s game against the Blazers and Dave Joerger told Grant Napear of KHTK on his show that Gay would probably miss Wednesday’s game against the Jazz, as well.
Joerger said if Gay missed Tuesday then he would probably miss Wednesday’s game, too, but that he hadn’t checked with trainers so it’s also possible he got new information at that time. Either way, owners looking at this week probably want to consider him doubtful for both games. The Kings will run with their skeleton unit in which Garrett Temple, Kosta Koufos and Matt Barnes all get excess minutes. All three are threats for late-round value.
