Sacramento Kings to be without Carl Landry for the 'foreseeable future'


Power forward Carl Landry has not played in over a weeks time – an amount that is set to become much longer after Sacramento Kings head coach Michael Malone stated the former Purdue talent will be out for the ‘foreseeable future’.

Landry, the Kings’ ‘prized’ offseason acquisition has only played in 18 games this year due to hip surgery that took place during training camp. Know he’s dealing with a bum knee that will keep him out of action for quite some time.

Per the Sacramento Bee:

Kings forward Carl Landry missed his fourth consecutive game Wednesday night because of a sore right knee.

“I think they’re still talking with the doctors, getting results, but he’s out for the foreseeable future,” Kings coach Michael Malone said.

The Kings only have 21 games left in their season, so it’s doubtful we’ll see much of Landry this season.

In his absence, Jason Thompson, Reggie Evans and Derrick Williams will continue to get his share of minutes.

Here’s to a much improved and healthy 2014-15 season for Landry next year.
