The Kings suffered a significant blow, as Rudy Gay suffered a full rupture of the left Achilles tendon and will miss the rest of the season. The team will now look for Garrett Temple, Anthony Tolliver and Matt Barnes to step up. Gay may choose not to opt out of his $14.2 million player option for next season when he'll be 30.

The Grizzlies are coming off back-to-back losses to the Bulls and at the Wizards, who beat Memphis 104-101 on Wednesday night. Marc Gasol scored 28 points in the loss, adding two rebounds, seven assists, one block and one turnover in 39 minutes. He should bounce back tonight against the Kings.
