Sacramento Kings News: Rookie Eric Moreland Out For The Season

The Sacramento Kings haven't had a very good week, and their 2015 got off to a less-than-ideal start with the news that rookie Eric Moreland will miss the rest of the 2014-15 season.

Moreland has a labral tear in his left shoulder, according to the team, and will undergo surgery on Saturday. The rookie out of Oregon State had shuffled between the Kings roster and their D-League affiliates in Reno frequently this season, with Moreland only appearing in three games for the Kings so far this season.

Undrafted coming out of college, Moreland caught Sacramento's attention with an impressive showing for their Summer League team. In seven games for the Reno Bighorns this year, Moreland averaged 13.7 points, 12.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists per contest.

The Kings have found themselves with plenty of depth at power forward this year, with Derrick Williams, Carl Landry, Jason Thompson and Reggie Evans making it difficult for Moreland to insert himself into the rotation. The Kings travel to Detroit for a road game against the Pistons Sunday, but then return home for a tough six-game home stand that sees them take on Oklahoma City, Denver, Cleveland, Dallas, Miami and the Los Angeles Clippers.
