Carl Landry appeared in a career-high 81 games for the Warriors last season, and was a key reserve who averaged 10.8 points and six rebounds on a team that made it to the second round of the playoffs.
The Kings haven’t sniffed the postseason in eight years, but signed Landry to a four-year deal worth $26 million last summer in hopes of beginning to build a team that will one day change that.
This year has been the usual dumpster fire in Sacramento, however, and Landry has been unable to contribute much at all due to suffering two serious injuries, the latest of which will end his season.
From the official release:
Sacramento Kings forward Carl Landry will miss the remainder of the season after a recent MRI taken at Kaiser Permanente revealed a medial meniscus tear in his right knee. Surgery will be scheduled in the near future.
Landry also suffered a hip flexor tear in training camp that forced him to miss more than three months. He returned to action on Jan. 19, but was never able to make it back to the level he played at last year, averaging just 4.2 points and 3.2 rebounds while playing 12.9 minutes per contest in 18 appearances.
