Down Goes Beno Udrih

A knee injury has landed the Kings’ starting point guard on the chillin’ list for a few weeks: “With the Kings’ voluntary conditioning program set to begin Tuesday and training camp starting Sept. 29, their starting point guard finds himself in a less-than-desirable condition. Beno Udrih suffered a left knee injury last Tuesday while playing for the Slovenian national team in Bonn, Germany. According to Eurobasket.com, he limped off the court in his team’s Eurobasket win over Germany and is expected to miss up to three weeks. Yet Kings basketball president Geoff Petrie said an MRI on Udrih’s knee was negative and the injury is not considered serious.”

    Beno’s knee is just trying to get out of competing for minutes with Tyreke.

    Tonya Harding was seen fleeing from the scene with a Memphis bumper sticker on the back of her ’89 Ford Escort.

    Does anyone see a trend here with Slovenian national team guards and knee injuries??

    And now we can see that Tyreke Evans is NOT an NBA pg, which will force a trade somewhere between now & next year’s trade deadline for Kevin Martin.

    Tyreke is gonna be a monster. Maybe not a classic lead guard, but he’ll get to the rim and score at will. Forget Udrih. Sacramento played Cisco Garcia at the point for like half of last season anyway.
    I actually like their lineup if they start Tyreke, Kevin Martin, Francisco, Jason Thompson and Spencer Hawes. I mean, they’re obviously super young but there’s a lot of talent there. Cisco gives them some toughness, and Nocioni as the 6th man gives them some frontcourt versatility. I’m not saying they’ll push for the playoffs, but they should be an exciting young team to watch.

    Sergio is an assist machine who should see enough court time to finally get to play through his mistakes.
