The Kings are uncertain when John Salmons will return to the team. When he does, he'll have to play his way back into the rotation.
Salmons has missed the last five preseason games, including Monday night's 103-88 loss to the Phoenix Suns at US Airways Center.
Salmons was excused from the team for personal reasons.
"No timetable," Kings coach Keith Smart said of Salmons' return. "Just in communication with him, and I told him just take your time and come back when you're ready."
In Salmons' absence, James Johnson, Francisco Garcia and Travis Outlaw appear to have cornered the minutes at small forward with Tyreke Evans still playing there when the Kings go with a smaller lineup.
Salmons began last season as the starting small forward but was benched while mired in a season-long slump.
