News: Casspi is doubtful to return to Thursday's preseason game against the Spurs due to flu-like symptoms.
Impact: Considering that Thursday's game doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things, it's not a surprise that the Kings will take precaution and keep Casspi out for the rest of the night. Assuming the illness ends up being nothing more than a minor bug, Casspi should be good to go for the beginning of the regular season.

News: Casspi (illness), after missing a couple tune-up games last month, has emerged as Isreal's best player at EuroBasket, averaging 18.0 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.1 steals, and 1.4 three-pointers in 33 minutes per game through seven contests.
Impact: Casspi has the Israeli team on the verge of qualifying for the knockout round. He excelled last season under coach George Karl, and even though he's blocked by Rudy Gay in the rotation, Casspi may still play a decent role off the bench and could be useful in deeper leagues.

News: Casspi did not compete in Isreal's two-game tuneup against Serbia on Saturday and Sunday due to an illness, David Pick of Basketball Insiders reports.
Impact: The Israelian National Team lost both matches against Serbia over the weekend, falling to 0-5 this summer in their exhibition season prior to EuroBasket. Casspi's exclusion from the proceedings shouldn't affect his ability to play this upcoming NBA season for the Kings.
