It’s time for more preseason action, as the Sacramento Kings visit the Utah Jazz on Monday. This game is not slated to be televised, but will be broadcast on KHTK 1140. That said, for last Thursday’s game the Kings did provide a video stream for fans within a 75 mile radius. Other were left o vividly imagine what the game might have looked like.
The Kings will be without a few players. Cory Joseph is still out with his calf injury. Calves are easy to re-aggravate, so it makes sense the Kings aren’t going to rush him back. Sean Cunningham reported a few days ago that Joseph is probably out the remainder of the preseason.

Also out for the remainder of preseason are Harry Giles and Trevor Ariza, according to James Ham. Giles is still out with his mysterious knee injury. Ariza had a lipoma removed from his back and is recovering.

Further down the rotation, Tyler Lydon (hip inflammation), Tyler Ulis (hip), and Hollis Thompson (hip) are also expected to miss the game. Not sure what’s going on with all these hip injuries. Odd.
For the Jazz, Dante Exum (knee), Emmanuel Mudiay (thigh), and Juwan morgan (ankle) are all listed as questionable.
The game tips off at 6:00 PM PT. This thread will double as the game thread.
