News: Landry (knee) is still not 100 percent, reports. "Right now, I'm trying to get back to 100-percent and I would say that I'm almost there – I'm very close," Landry said.
Impact: Landry returned to the Kings last season after a stint with the Warriors but was hampered by injuries throughout the year. He appeared in only 18 games, as a torn hip flexor and torn meniscus limited his availability. Once fully healthy, he may require some time to shake off the rust, but expect a much more productive season from the former Purdue star.

News: Moreland is making progress with Kings, as the 22-year old claims he has added close to 20 pounds this offseason with more to go, reports.
Impact: Although Moreland went undrafted in June, he impressed the Kings' front office with his college career, setting the Oregon State school record of blocked shots (184), and with his success with the Kings' summer league team, averaging 3.5 points off the bench over six games, 8.8 rebounds, and 2.7 blocks per game. If he continues to show that kind of production in the NBA, Moreland will be an up-and-coming player to watch.

News: Gay did not suffer a broken jaw as he indicated earlier according to a Team USA official, USA Today reports.
Impact: Gay is still in a lot of pain despite not having a fractured jaw, but the official indicated the injury was a chipped tooth and bruising around a tooth socket. The injury occurred in the third quarter of Thursday's game against Lithuania, where he took an elbow to the face. The injury shouldn't cause Gay to miss any time in the regular season, but his timetable should become more clear in the near future.

News: Gay suffered a fractured jaw and chipped tooth in Team USA's win over Lithuania on Thursday, USA Today reports.
Impact: Gay took an elbow to the jaw in the third quarter, which may have lead to the skirmish that occurred at the end of the game. He is still expected to be available for Team USA's gold medal game, so this injury should not have any impact on Gay's NBA season.

News: McLemore is expected to play alongside rookie shooting guard Nik Stauskas in certain lineups, the Kings' official website reports. "What I've seen is that Ben and Nik can play together without any problem. When you have two guys who have the potential to shoot as well as they do, it's going to pose problems for other teams," coach Michael Malone said.
Impact: McLemore struggled mightily last season after being selected seventh overall in the 2013 draft. He only managed 8.8 points per game and shot 38 percent from the field while playing 27 minutes per game. However, with the addition of Stauskas and the coach's plan on using the pair together, McLemore should see equal or even more playing time this season. His fantasy output should increase with Stauskas' ability to draw defenders and distribute the ball to his teammates.

News: Stauskas could receive a relatively good amount of playing time to start the year as coach Michael Malone has said that Stauskas and Ben McLemore can play alongside each other, the Kings' official website reports. "What I've seen is that Ben and Nik can play together without any problem. They both have a pretty good understanding of the game and they play well off of each other," Malone said.
Impact: Stauskas was drafted eighth overall in this year's draft out of the University of Michigan where he scored 17.5 points per game and had a 47-percent field goal percentage last season. While Stauskas is recognized for his stellar three-point shooting, his ability to drive to the basket, distribute the ball to his teammates, and create shots in traffic remains an underrated part of his game.

News: Tyler was waived by the Kings on Saturday, the Sacramento Bee reports.
Impact: Tyler, whose contract for the season was set to become guaranteed later this month, was acquired from the Knicks in a trade earlier this summer. The move will allow Sacramento to free up more space under the salary cap. The 23-year-old former second-round pick will try to catch on with another team before training camps begin.
