Analysis: Gay averaged 18.7 points last season in Sacramento but was limited to 30 games before rupturing his left Achilles tendon in January and having surgery a few days later.

Analysis: Gay made the decision to opt out despite suffering a season-ending tear of his left Achilles tendon on Jan. 18. Montgomery said Gay is "ahead of schedule" in his rehabilitation and expects to return to the court in mid-June. An 11-year veteran, Gay averaged 18.7 points and 6.3 rebounds in 30 games with Sacramento prior to his injury. He averaged a career-high 21.1 points in 2014-15, his first season with the Kings.

Analysis: This was what everyone feared Wednesday when teammates and trainers helped Gay off the court after he tried to drive the baseline and went down in a heap in the third quarter. Gay finishes the season having averaged 18.7 points in 30 games. Matt Barnes is likely to step into Gay's starting role, though Garrett Temple and Anthony Tolliver could receive increased minutes.

Analysis: Gay is now 5 of 25 from beyond the arc over a five-game stretch in which he's averaged 17 points, two below his current season average. He needs to score big to have fantasy value, as he isn't a major asset in most other categories.

Analysis: Gay also finished 3 of 11 from the field in an 11-point effort against San Antonio on Thursday. It should be noted that the Spurs and Clippers are two of the league's top defensive teams, and Gay entered the San Antonio game off a 29-point performance at Portland. There's a good chance he bounces back next time out.
