Kings guard Ben McLemore will play tonight against the Memphis Grizzlies.

McLemore left Wednesday’s win at Minnesota with a sprained left ankle.

“I’ve been getting treatments since it happened in Minnesota so I’m feeling good right now,” McLemore said after shootaround this morning at FedEx Forum. “I’m ready to out there and play with my teammates.”

McLemore said he couldn’t run two days ago but had no problems this morning.

“He’s fine,” said Kings coach Michael Malone. “Young legs, he recovers quickly. I don’t think it was too severe.”
