Tyler Honeycutt is healthy enough to play.
But it will be tough to crack the rotation after missing most of the preseason to date with a right fibula stress fracture that was discovered during his Oct. 1 preseason physical.
Honeycutt was in uniform for the first time this preseason when the Kings played the Los Angeles Lakers at Thomas & Mack Center on Friday night.
"I'm going to try to piece him in there and see where he goes," said Kings coach Keith Smart.
Honeycutt was the Kings second-round draft choice in 2011. He played in 15 games last season, and this offseason was considered to be vital for his development.
But a stress fracture in his right foot forced Honeycutt to miss all of summer league in July.
Nearly three weeks into training camp, the plan is not to force Honeycutt into the rotation as the team prepares for the season opener just 11 days away.
"I'm going to try to get him on the floor and give him some time," Smart said. "And maybe work him through the D League a little bit.
"We haven't made that decision yet, but he's missed summer league, he's missed training camp, he's just missed a lot of basketball, and we've got to get him up to speed."
