Carl Landry will be active for Kings vs. Thunder, according to report

Top Hat back!


Carl Landry, who has been sidelined since training camp with a torn hip flexor, will dress for the Kings on Sunday against the Thunderreports Cowbell Kingdom's James Ham. Ham reports that it's not certain that Landry will play, but he will apparently dress.

Landry was due to return to action in January or February, so this follows that timeline. However, Landry only recently began participating in Kings' practices, and there was no indication he'd be available at all on this road trip.

Landry signed a four-year deal in the offseason, returning to the Kings two seasons after being traded for Marcus Thornton. He didn't play at all in the preseason. Jason Thompson, Derrick Williams and Quincy Acy make up the team's current battery at power forward; one assumes that Acy is the odd man out once Landry begins to play, though Q has gotten a some smallball center minutes as well.

The Kings play the Thunder at 4 p.m. Pacific.
