Rudy Gay had surgery on his left Achilles back in January and just posted on his Instagram that he’s been cleared.
Twitter user @HeuristicLineup posted a picture of Gay’s Instagram stating that he’s been cleared. Gay has not picked up his $14.3 million option with the Kings though GM Vlade Divac has expressed interest in bringing him back. He’s likely hoping to land a large long term deal but he is 31 years old and coming off of a major surgery. If he does head back to Sacramento, it’ll be interesting to see whether he steps right into a prominent role or becomes more of a mentor to a young Kings squad. Since Gay is the one who announced the news and not a doctor or team official, take it with a grain of salt.
