Casspi (knee) is doubtful for Thursday's matchup with the Bucks, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports.

Casspi seems poised to miss his sixth straight game, as his participation in Wednesday's shootaround certainly wasn't encouraging. Rudy Gay (Achilles) will once again have to take on heavy minutes at the three as a result.

Casspi (knee) was limited during Wednesday's session, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports.

Casspi, who has a bone bruise in his left knee, has not played since Dec. 6, missing five straight contests. His low activity level at Wednesday's session doesn't exactly bode well for his status leading up to Thursday's matchup with the Bucks.

Casspi (knee) is doubtful for Tuesday's game versus the Thunder, the Kings' official site reports.

Casspi's bone bruise in his left knee has resulted in four consecutive DNPs, and a fifth is all but assured at this point. As a result, a definite return date is eluding the wing, allowing Derrick Williams a more permanent role in the Kings' forward rotation.

Casspi, who will not play Saturday against Detroit, said his left knee is still hurting, Cowbell Kingdom reports.

Casspi had been considered probable for Saturday's matchup, but he was scratched after his pregame warmup. "I don't know, it's still hurting," Casspi said. "We did an MRI the other day to try and see how it is. There's inflammation underneath the bone. Every time I try to push off or start running, it hurts like a knife." That certainly doesn't sound good, but for now Casspi remains day-to-day.

Casspi (left knee) has been downgraded to out for Saturday's game against the Pistons.

Casspi was able to participate in portions of Friday's practice and was expected to play Saturday, but that is no longer the case. It's possible that he aggravated the injury, but a more likely explanation is that the Kings simply wanted to be cautious with him and give him a few extra days to heal. Sacramento's next game is Tuesday.

Casspi (knee) took part in post-practice shooting Friday, although his status for Saturday's game against the Pistons is still unclear, The Sacramento Bee reports.

Casspi sat out Thursday's game with a left knee bone contusion and should be considered day-to-day without an official designation from the Kings. When considering that he's averaging just 18.6 minutes on the court this season as it is, it might be best to consider other options with Casspi's availability in question for Saturday.

Casspi will miss Thursday's game against the Rockets with a left knee bone contusion, James Ham of NBA.com reports.

Casspi returned to the bench Friday, after starting the previous two games. He scored eight points (2-4 FG, 4-4 FT) and added two rebounds and two assists in 13 minutes against the Spurs.

Casspi was effective during his two games as a starter, filling in for Rudy Gay (Achilles). But with Gay's return, Casspi returns to his small role off the bench. Until Gay next misses time Casspi can be ignored in most formats.
