Sacramento Kings Roster Report 2009-12-12

Sacramento Kings Roster Report 2009-12-12ROTATION: Starters -- Guard Tyreke Evans, Guard Donte Greene, Small forward Andres Nocioni, Power forward Jason Thompson, Center Spencer Hawes. Bench -- Guard Beno Udrih, Guard Sergio Rodriguez, Forward Omri Casspi, Guard Ime Udoka, Guard Sergio Rodriguez.


--G Beno Udrih has been the most consistent Kings' contributor not named Tyreke Evans this season. After signing a five-year, $32 million deal in the summer of 2008, Udrih was justifiably maligned for his poor play last season. This year, however, he is averaging 13.6 points on 54.1 percent shooting while hitting 44.2 percent from beyond the arc. Udrih is also averaging 29.9 minutes, 3.8 assists and 1.8 turnovers per game. He had 16 points, five assists and just one turnover in a loss at San Antonio on Wednesday.

--F Omri Casspi had 20 points on 9-of-14 shooting with seven rebounds at San Antonio on Wednesday. The rookie didn't play on Tuesday in New Orleans. Casspi is ranked sixth in scoring among rookies.

--C Sean May has gone from starting center to bench warmer for the Kings. The veteran who was so enthused with what he thought would be a chance for consistent playing time in Sacramento hasn't played in 13 of the last 15 games. He was the team's starting center to start the season before Spencer Hawes assumed the role after three games.


--G/F Francisco Garcia (right wrist fracture) is out at least until mid-February after his exercise ball accident on Oct. 9. The fifth-year player was bench pressing with 90-pound dumbbells in each arm when the ball exploded and the weights caused the injury that required surgery.

--G Kevin Martin is out at least eight weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a hairline fracture in his left wrist on Nov. 9. Martin told The Sacramento Bee in the Dec. 8 editions that he was at least three weeks away from returning to the floor. Martin has an X-ray Friday that will determine the next step of his recovery.
