Yesterday the Sacramento Kings sent out a press release indicating that Rudy Gay (right Achilles tendinitis), Darren Collison (left quadriceps contusion) and Ramon Sessions (right knee strain) were all listed as questionable for tonight's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.  According to the Kings, questionable indicates a 50% probability of playing.

While the Kings have yet to provide an injury update, Comcast's Bill Herenda has learned that Rudy Gay is out for tonight.

Gay has been dealing with his tendinitis for a while now but this will be the first game that he'd miss because of it.  There has been no update on either Collison or Sessions however.  In Gay's absence, Omri Casspi or Derrick Williams will likely get the start.

Meanwhile on New Orleans' side, center Omer Asik is still listed as questionable but he was able to participate in some practice on Monday, so he could end up playing.

We'll update this post throughout the day as we learn more regarding Sacramento's injuries.
