SACRAMENTO -- The Kings can't catch a break. Already massively short-handed, Sacramento lost point guard Ty Lawson to a left hamstring strain in the second quarter of the Kings matchup with Celtics Wednesday night.
Lawson starter alongside Darren Collison for head coach Dave Joerger. He finished the night with six points and four assists in 13 minutes of action before bolting for the locker room.
The 29-year-old point joins a long list of injured Kings players. Starting small forward Rudy Gay is out for the season with a ruptured left Achilles tendon. Garrett Temple done until after the All_Star break with a tear in his left hamstring and Omri Casspi has missed 13 straight with a right a plantaris tendon strain.
Lawson has played well in his first season in Sacramento, averaging 9.1 points and 4.5 assists in 24.8 minutes a game
