A few days ago, Sacramento Kings head coach Michael Malone suggested that the Kings would be without Carl Landry for a while.
We weren’t told how long, but the key word used was ‘foreseeable future’.
Now we have a better idea as to how long Landry will be out – the rest of the season.
Cowbell Kingdom’s James Ham broke the news earlier today.
A league source has informed Cowbell Kingdom that Landry will miss the remainder of the 2013-14 campaign after an MRI revealed a medial meniscus tear in his right knee. The injury will require season-ending surgery, finishing off a disastrous first year for the Sacramento Kings’ biggest free agent splash last summer.
It’s a disappointing end to a disappointing season for Landry, who signed a four year, $26 million dollar contract this past offseason, coming over from the Golden State Warriors.
Landry, who played in just 18 games this season, finishes the year averaging 4.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 12 minutes per contest.
Here is to a much improved (and far healthier) 2014-15 campaign.
