April 11, 2015 Updates

Rudy Gay sustained a concussion on March 30 and was held out of the next three games. After initial resolution of his symptoms, Gay successfully returned through the NBA Concussion Policy’s return-to-participation protocol. Upon returning to full competition earlier this week, Gay experienced symptoms that required further observation and rest from play. The Sacramento Kings medical staff has continued to consult with the Director of the NBA Concussion Program, Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher, and has ultimately decided that Gay will not participate in games for the remainder of the season.

Rudy Gay says he has head coach George Karl's system down "mentally," which is progress from January when he felt "lost" under Tyrone Corbin. But he is still hoping to get some direction on what the front office wants out of him this offseason. Gay, who signed an extension with the Kings a month before Michael Malone was let go, had this to say when asked about his goals for the offseason that begins in less than a week. "It's kind of different. I never really; for the most part I've always been with the organization and I kind of knew what they wanted me to do. But you know, I have to sit down and see what those guys; see what they want from me next year and try to come in as close to that as possible," Gay told Sactown Royalty. Sactown Royalty

Some of the chatter as of late has centered on the fact that DeMarcus and Rudy have been seen sort of jawing at each other a little bit during games. As a teammate of theirs, is that normal and is it just being competitive or is it a cause for concern? Rudy and DeMarcus they're the best of friends off the court ... so whenever they're off the court, you can't tell anything happened on the court so I'm not concerned. I think during the games, they're very competitive, they both want to win and you're going to always have those things. It's just like any family. Any good family, any family that's really close you're going to step on each other's toes here and there but at the end of day we understand that we're still together, we're still brothers. That's what is special about our team, despite what we've been through our chemistry has been really good. This is like the first year I've been on a team where you haven't necessarily had a good record, but our chemistry has been great. We have a bunch of good guys on the team, so I'm not worried about it. Sactown Royalty

Also making an appearance in the league’s top 30 turnover machines are small forward Rudy Gay (2.6 per game) and point guard Darren Collison (2.5), ranked 25th and 29th respectively among qualified players. Gay has been a culprit of too many dribbles, while Collison has been guilty of forcing feeds. But to be clear, this has been a team-wide epidemic. “Turnovers, basically, I tell them all the time, don’t be Magic Johnson,” Karl told the media after his first practice. “Just be a good basketball player. And good basketball players don’t make bad decisions. Make good, solid decisions, don’t try to make the Magic Johnson pass, because that’s when I think instead of throwing a pass that gets made 98 percent of the time, which it should be, we throw passes that have a 60/40 ratio, and that’s not even good for a quarterback in football.” Cowbell Kingdom
