Kings guard Arron Afflalo reportedly refused to enter a game.

Afflalo, via James Ham of CSN California:

“No, no, I’ve been active and available for every game,” Afflalo said.

“I’m a player that loves to compete and play,” Afflalo added. “But I have to be there for my teammates. Guys are playing well, getting their opportunity as coach figures out the rotation and things of that nature. But it’s a long season and things tend to shake themselves out.”

Sean Cunningham of ABC 10:

Joerger not talking about it – rather than vouching for Afflalo’s availability – if the guard never refused to enter is weird. Not proof of anything or close to that. But weird.
