The Sacramento Kings received some good medical news today. Two starters who left Friday’s preseason finale in Las Vegas with injuries have been cleared for Wednesday’s season opener against the Golden State Warriors.
A CT scan on forward Rudy Gay revealed no fracture in his jaw. Guard Ben McLemore was given a precautionary concussion assessment test that was negative.
Gay left Friday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers at MGM Grand Garden Arena after being elbowed by Lakers forward Julius Randle in the face.
McLemore left the game in the fourth quarter with a cut above his right eye after bumping heads with Lakers guard Wayne Ellington.
The cut required five stitches.
