News: Gay scored six points (3-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and grabbed six rebounds in 16 minutes against Phoenix on Wednesday. Impact: Although the Kings had been eliminated for a few weeks now, both Gay and fellow starter Isaiah Thomas briefly played in the season finale. Overall, it was actually a pretty good year in Sacramento for Gay, who has earned a less-than stellar reputation amongst analytics fans. In any event, the 48 percent he shot for the Kings would have been a career-high for a single season (by a wide margin, too) but his overall percentage was dragged down by his brief, but poor stint in Toronto.(RotoWire, )

Apr 13, 2014
News: Gay (back) will not play in Sunday's game against the Timberwolves, the Kings' official site reports. Impact: Gay will sit out due to the fact that the team is playing in back-to-back sets.

Sat. Apr 12, 2014
News: Gay (back) returned from a two-game absence with 16 points (6-18 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and six rebounds in 34 minutes in the loss to the Clippers on Saturday. Impact: Gay missed last week's losses to the Thunder and Trail Blazers, and his return wasn't able to rescue the Kings from defeat. He'll have a major decision in the offseason to determine whether he wants to exercise his player option and stay with the Kings or test the free-agent market.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 11, 2014
News: Gay (back) practiced Friday and will play Saturday versus the Clippers, News 10 in Sacramento reports. Impact: A minor back injury kept Gay out of the Kings' last two games, allowing Travis Outlaw to enter the starting lineup.

Wed. Apr 9, 2014
News: Gay (back) is likely to play Wednesday against the Blazers, Cowbell Kingdom reports. Impact: Gay missed Tuesday's game with a back issue but is expected back in the lineup Wednesday.

Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Gay will sit Tuesday's game against the Thunder with back issues, Cowbell Kingdom reports. Impact: This comes as a surprise to owners, as Gay hadn't been dealing with back issues for the past weeks. He's slated to possibly miss more games this week due to the birth of his child, so he'll be a shaky play in weekly leagues. Expect Derrick Williams to be the primary beneficiary of his minutes.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Gay (personal) could miss a couple games this week to attend to the birth of his first child, the Sacramento Bee reports. Impact: It appears Gay may miss some games this week, but it will be at a last-minute's notice. The Kings have games on Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday, and Wednesday over the next week-and-a-half, and owners in weekly leagues may have to decide if Gay's worth setting into lineups. Daily contest players could deploy Gay on a game-by-game basis, as he isn't likely going to miss the entire stretch.(RotoWire, )
Sun. Apr 6, 2014
News: Gay scored 32 points, but it wasn't enough on Sunday as Sacramento lost to Dallas 93-91. Impact: Gay has scored 30 or more points in all three games versus Dallas this season, and is averaging 32.3 per game on the Mavericks in 2013-14.(STATS, 10:43pm)

News: Gay had an off-night Friday against the Warriors, posting just 10 points (2-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-7 FT) and three rebounds in 28 minutes. Impact: This marks one of Gay's worst performances as a member of the Kings, and owners will certainly need more moving forward. Expect him to get back to his ways of 20.2 points, six rebounds, and 1.3 steals per game.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 4, 2014
News: Gay says that he has plans to depart for his home in Memphis at any moment, if his wife starts to give birth, Yahoo Sports! reports. Impact: The team is also apparently on high alert and ready for Gay to leave the team at a moment's notice.
