Rudy Gay leaves with Achilles injury against Rockets (VIDEO)

Jan 22, 2014, 9:02 PM EDT

Despite his reputation as a ball-dominant, inefficient scorer, Rudy Gay has played splendidly since being traded to Sacramento, and was coming off of a 41-point performance on Tuesday night against the Pelicans.

So naturally, since he plays for one of the historically worst franchises in league history, the jinx kicked in and he went down with an injury the very next night.

Gay left the game against the Rockets in the first quarter, after coming up grimacing on a non-contact play. That’s never a good sign, and the Kings announced that Gay had suffered a left Achilles injury that would keep him from returning the rest of the game.

    i thought i told you to turn off injuries !

    on a more serious note, if this proves to be a big injury, then this will most certainly impact his contract decision this coming summer. i know deng was dealing with an Achilles issue this year, but he’s back playing. hopefully, this isn’t something that will linger for gay.

    Not good, since Cousins also left the game with an injury.

    Hope it isn’t that serious, he’s been playing well for them.

    Kings have played better with their $33 million a year duo. Including last night they are 9-12 with both players. That is a.429 winning percentage which is good for 12th place in the WC.

    I guess they might need a couple of more players making $33 million a year to make the playoffs.
