Rudy Gay joins Darren Collison on the injury list and will miss tonight's game against Phoenix

The Kings will definitely have their work cut out for them tonight as they are now down two of their "Big 3".  Darren Collison was already out with a hip flexor strain that has already caused him to miss Saturday's game against the Utah Jazz. Now the Kings are also without starting Small Forward Rudy Gay.  Gay is out with a sore left foot.

Without Gay and Collison, the Kings will need someone else to step up offensively.  Ben McLemore is an obvious candidate, as is Derrick Williams.  Williams is at his best when he's looking to be aggressive and with no Collison or Gay the Kings will need him to be constantly attacking.

Ramon Sessions will likely start once more for Darren Collison but it's unclear who will start for Gay.  Before the injury I would have assumed that Tyrone Corbin would have started Derrick Williams at Power Forward to match up with Markieff Morris, but now we could see Williams start in place of Gay.  Omri Casspi is another logical choice.
