The Sacramento Kings today announced that Rudy Gay has been upgraded from questionable to probable to play with right achilles tendinitis. Gay is leading the Kings in scoring at 22.5 points a game.
On the other side, New Orleans Pelicans' starting center Omer Asik is questionable with a sore lower back per Jim Eichenhofer.
Omer Asik (lower back pain) questionable for tonight's game in Sacramento. We'll have an update later today. Monty pregame media is 7:30 CT— Jim Eichenhofer (@Jim_Eichenhofer) November 18, 2014
Asik missed the Pelicans' Monday night loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. Alexis Ajinca started in his place and will probably do the same tonight should Asik not be able to go and second year player Jeff Withey will probably see time as well. Asik is currently averaging 9 points and 10 rebounds a game for New Orleans, along with a 1.5 assists and 1.3 blocks in 27.3 minutes a game.
