News: Gay (Achilles) managed to play 35 minutes Thursday and recorded 20 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, and three assists. Impact: Gay has dealt with a nagging Achilles injury over the past week but hasn't actually missed time away from the court because of it. The Kings face the Timberwolves on Saturday and Gay seems to be in the clear for that contest with Thursday's successful performance under his belt.(RotoWire, )

News: Gay (Achilles) has been upgraded to probable for Thursday's game against the Bulls, James Ham of Cowbell Kingdom reports. Impact: Gay has not missed any time while dealing with a hamstring issue, despite being listed as questionable for the past two games. Barring a setback, expect him tot take the court for Thursday's nationally televised matchup.(RotoWire, )

News: Gay (Achilles) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Bulls, James Ham of Cowbell Kingdom reports. Impact: Gay was originally questionable for last Tuesday's game against the Pelicans as well, but was later upgraded to probable and finished with 15 points on 6-of-17 shooting in 37 minutes. In all likelihood, Gay will suit up again, but it's a situation worth checking up on prior to game time.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Nov 18, 2014
News: Gay (Achilles) will officially play and start in Tuesday's game against the Pelicans, the Sacramento Bee reports. Impact: Gay was listed as probable early Tuesday, so it's not too surprising he's in the starting lineup and playing. It's questionable whether or not he'll get a full minutes load, so that's still something to keep in mind. If he plays in full, look for him to continue to produce offensively, as he's combined for 69 points in his last three games.(RotoWire, )

News: Gay (Achilles) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans, James Ham of Cowbell Kingdom reports. Impact: Gay developed a hamstring injury after Saturday's win over the Spurs, but after taking it easy Sunday and Monday, he appears to be on track to play Tuesday night. Check back for official confirmation in advance of Tuesday's 10:00 PM ET tip.(RotoWire, )

News: Gay is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game versus the Pelicans due to right Achilles tendinitis. Impact: Gay missed three games in January of last season due to a strained Achilles, but the severity of the current ailment is unknown. If he fails to suit up Tuesday, it'll be interesting to see how coach Michael Malone shuffles up the forward rotation, especially with Jason Thompson probable to play due to tendinitis in his left quadriceps. However, Carl Landry and Omri Casspi should profit, as the very least.(RotoWire, )
Nov 16, 2014
News: Gay has agreed to a three year, $40 million contract extension with the Kings, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! reports. Impact: The deal includes a player option for the third year in the 2016-17 season, where Gay can opt to become a free agent a year early when the new NBA TV contract will result in higher player salaries. Gay has had some trouble sticking with teams considering his elite scoring ability, but it appears that he will be with the Kings for the next two or three years.(RotoWire, )

News: Gay scored 18 for the Kings on Saturday. Impact: Gay cooled off after averaging 24.7 over his previous three efforts.(STATS, 00:18am)
Fri. Nov 14, 2014
News: Gay scored 25 and grabbed seven rebounds in Thursday's loss at Memphis. Impact: Gay is averaging a career-high in points (23.0) and rebounds (7.2).(STATS, 00:13am)
Thu. Nov 13, 2014
News: Gay registered a line of 25 points (8-17 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 8-8 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block. He played 40 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Grizzlies. Impact: Gay was red hot early in the game Thursday at Memphis, but started to miss shots as the game progressed. He uncharacteristically protected the ball well, though, not giving up a single turnover; his turnover average was over three per game coming into this contest. Gay contributes in every category on the box score most nights, and remains a nice player to start in all leagues.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Nov 12, 2014
News: Gay had 26 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in Tuesday's loss at Dallas. Impact: Gay is averaging 7.3 rebounds and 3.4 assists in the early going, both of which would be career highs.(STATS, 00:42am)
Tue. Nov 11, 2014
News: Gay scored 26 points (7-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 11-13 FT), with eight assists, eight rebounds and two steals in 39 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Mavericks. Impact: Gay is really coming into his own with the Kings, and his impressive night just reminds us exactly how good he's capable of playing. Gay wasn't forcing shots, but also couldn't help his team avoid blowing a 20-point lead on Tuesday. He's one of the top small forwards in the game, and he's an excellent fantasy option moving forward in 2014.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Nov 10, 2014
News: Gay double-doubled in a team-high 38 minutes on Sunday, scoring 23 points (9-19 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT) to go with 10 rebounds, six assists, and two steals. Impact: Gay has been phenomenal to begin the year, and has produced top-25 value thus far. He has been a big part of the Kings resurgence this season by contributing big in rebounding, shooting from distance, as well as on defense. While the obvious answer would be to sell-high on Gay while he's producing above his value, it isn't inconceivable to think he could keep up this output.(RotoWire, )
Nov 9, 2014
News: Gay (illness) has been upgraded to probable for Sunday's game against the Thunder, James Ham of the team's official site reports. Impact: Gay was initially called questionable to play Sunday, but he must feel better or look better, since his official status has been upgraded.

Impact: Gay, who played 48 minutes in Friday's double-overtime win over Phoenix, came down with a virus on Saturday and was initially considered questionable.
