Rudy Gay leaves game with shoulder strain, MRI Friday

0 Comments

The veteran Rudy Gay was trying to back down the rookie Justise Winslow in the third quarter — but Winslow is a strong defender. Period. Not just for a rookie.

Gay spun and tried to go up, Winslow got his arm in there and stripped the ball — Gay suffered what the team would later describe as a shoulder strain. He was grabbing his shoulder, he left the game and did not return. He is set to have an MRI on Friday, according to the team.

He likely misses some time on the Kings’ current road trip, but hopefully this is nothing serious.
