Sacramento Kings’ power forward Carl Landry got another big blow on Saturday.
According to James Hamm of Cowbell Kingdom, Landry will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury.
A league source has informed Cowbell Kingdom that Landry will miss the remainder of the 2013-14 campaign after an MRI revealed a medial meniscus tear in his right knee. The injury will require season-ending surgery, finishing off a disastrous first year for the Sacramento Kings’ biggest free agent splash last summer.
The 30-year-old forward has missed the team’s previous five games with what was initially called a sore right knee. He traveled with the team on its season-long seven-game road trip, but will miss the Kings’ remaining 20 games.
Landry has been limited to just 18 games this season because of injuries.
Landry, who is in his second stint with the Kings, joined the team in the offseason. During his first year in Sacramento, he averaging 18.0 points and 6.5 rebounds per game, but has not been able to match that success.
Landry has also played for the Houston Rockets, New Orleans Pelicans and Golden State Warriors.
He was averaging 4.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 12.9 minutes per game this season.
