The Sacramento Kings announced this afternoon that veteran forward Carl Landry underwent successful surgery on his right knee. He is expected to make a full recovery for the 2014-15 season. The 30-year old Landry made his season debut on Jan. 19 after missing the Kings’ first 38 games with a torn hip flexor. On March 8, the Kings were forced to shut Landry down for the remainder of the season when he sustained a medial meniscus tear in his right knee. Cowbell Kingdom

Kings forward Carl Landry missed his third consecutive game Monday night when the Kings faced the New Orleans Pelicans at Sleep Train Arena. Landry has been sidelined because of a sore right knee since finishing the morning shootaround Friday in Los Angeles. He had an MRI on Monday, and the team was still awaiting the results before tipoff. “Once we get those results, obviously we’ll be able to have a much better idea of what the plan is with him moving forward,” coach Michael Malone said. “I’m hoping that he’s going to be able to play some of these games to finish out the season.” Sacramento Bee

Nevertheless, I'm told the Kings are looking to buy good players, not sell them. But the Kings don't have a lot of assets that people covet at the moment. Marcus Thornton, Jason Thompson, Jimmer Fredette and Carl Landry would all be available for teams making a run at the playoffs, but no one is beating down the doors for those guys. ESPN.com

Carl Landry isn’t close to returning to the court for the Kings, but he is able to travel with the Kings as he recovers from surgery for a torn left hip flexor. Landry underwent surgery Oct. 15 for the injury suffered during training camp in Santa Barbara. He was expected to miss three to four months after the surgery. Landry is going through his rehab on the road, but is still unable to do anything on the court. “Just being patient is the toughest part for me,” Landry said. “I’ve got to sit back and watch my teammates go to war and I can’t be involved physically. The main thing is to be patient and remember that it’s a journey, it’s a marathon, and things will be better in due time.” Sacramento Bee

Michael Malone echoed the sentiment shared by his sixth-year veteran. The Kings head coach likes the versatility he has in his frontcourt, especially with players like Mbah a Moute and Outlaw, who are capable of sliding over from small forward to the power forward position. “Obviously when one man goes down, that’s another opportunity for somebody else,” Malone said. ”So as cold-blooded as it sounds, this train must keep on moving on. We wish Carl the best and we can’t wait to have him back with us.” Cowbell Kingdom
