Although the Kings have been off to a less than impressive first half of the season, they have had two beams of light in Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins-- Both of whom left Wednesday nights game against the Houston Rockets with injuries.

Gay's injury was especially scary because he went down in the first quarter without coming into contact with anyone else. After getting up, he limped off the court and did not return. It was later described as an Achilles injury.
