    The hits keep coming for the Sacramento Kings.

    After dropping three straight on the road, they travel to Milwaukee on Saturday to face the Bucks and it looks like they’ll have to do so without one of their main scoring cogs.

    Rudy Gay is listed as doubtful, giving the veteran forward just a 25 percent chance of suiting up. The 30-year-old wing is off to a great start, averaging 22.5 points and 5.3 rebounds in 34 minutes per game for coach Dave Joerger, but he injured his rib cartilage in Thursday’s loss to the Orlando Magic.

    If Gay can’t go, Joerger will likely decide between Omri Casspi, Matt Barnes and Garrett Temple at the three. Gay missed 12 games last season with a variety of injuries, including multiple games with an Achilles issue.
