Published Add your comment

Jason Terry who joined the Sacramento Kings after a trade with the Brooklyn Nets will sit out the remainder of the season with a knee injury.

General Manager of the Kings Pete D'Alessandro announced on Saturday that the newly acquired Terry is still suffering with a problem in his left knee and will not play for the Kings this season.

Jason Terry arrived at the Kings alongside Reggie Evans after a deadline day trade that saw Marcus Thornton leave for the Brooklyn Nets. 

The 15-year veteran has not played an NBA game since the 13th of February and will not sit out the remainder of the season at his new ball club.

Terry recently spoke out about the injury he has been plagued with: "I want to thank the Kings for their understanding during this process, through my interactions with the front office and medical staff, it's clear that the organization cares about its players and has their best interest at heart. I'm confident that rehab presents the best opportunity to be ready for next season."

Terry has been traded twice in the last two seasons after being part of the blockbuster trade involving the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets that saw Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett leave the Boston Garden.
