Description: New Orleans G/F John Salmons (personal) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Charlotte.
Insight: Salmons was at home for the birth of his child and it isn't known when he will return. He's not seeing enough playing time to be of value to fantasy owners.
 
2/25/2014 6:33:00 PM
Description: Toronto G/F John Salmons (back spasms) will play Tuesday, according to Josh Lewenberg of tsn.ca.
Insight: Salmons had a recurrence of back spasms but will play through it. He hasn't scored more than eight points in any of his last eight games, however, so there's no reason to use him in fantasy.
 
1/20/2014 10:15:00 AM
Description: Toronto G/F John Salmons (back spasms) didn't play Sunday against the Lakers and is questionable for Monday against Charlotte.
Insight: Salmons has averaged 6.3 ppg in 36 games this season so has no fantasy value, but his absence should mean 35-plus minutes for starter Terrence Ross.

Description: Toronto G/F John Salmons won't be in action Sunday against the Lakers. SOURCE: Paul Jones, Sportsnet
Insight: He's out with back spasms. Salmons has averaged 6.3 ppg in 36 games this season. For now, consider him day-to-day.
 
1/18/2014 8:19:00 PM
Description: Raptors swingman John Salmons is going to be a game-time decision Sunday against the Lakers. SOURCE: Josh Lewenberg, TSN 1050
Insight: He injured his back on Friday but was back at practice less than 24 hours later. If we had to guess, we'd say Salmons is likely to play on Sunday. He's averaged 9.0 ppg in two games against Los Angeles in 2013-14.
 
1/17/2014 10:28:00 PM
Description: Toronto G/F John Salmons left Friday's game with back spasms.
Insight: He averaged 26 minutes and 12 points his previous three games but left after 10 minutes Friday. He has played 25 minutes per game in 18 games with Toronto after coming over from the Kings, but he has averaged just 6.8 ppg in that timeframe. Look for Steve Novak and Landry Fields to see more minutes if Salmons has to miss time.
 
Hot3/3/2013 8:33:00 PM
Description: Kings forward John Salmons had 22 points with five triples Sunday against the Bobcats in 30 minutes of play.
Insight: Salmons has scored at least 15 points in four of the last five games and made 19 threes in that span.
 
Hot2/27/2013 9:28:00 PM
Description: John Salmons led the Kings with 21 points on 7-of-9 shooting Wednesday in a win over the Magic.
Insight: Salmons was money from deep, knocking down four of five from long range. Salmons is now averaging 15.5 ppg in four games since the Kings traded Thomas Robinson, Tyler Honeycutt and Francisco Garcia to Houston for Patrick Patterson, Toney Douglas and Cole Aldrich.
 
1/30/2013 6:35:00 PM
Description: Sacramento forward John Salmons (illness) will miss Wednesday's game against Boston. Salmons left Monday's game after trying to play through the flu.
Insight: It was looking like Salmons might have some fantasy relevance when he averaged 13.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.7 threes in 15 games from Dec. 19 to Jan. 16, but he only produced 5.7 ppg in the six games prior to Monday. He hasn't scored more than eight points since Jan. 16, mainly because he hasn't been attempting many shots.
 
1/28/2013 8:59:00 PM
Description: Sacramento forward John Salmons tried to play through a virus on Monday but he failed to score a point and eventually went back to the locker room after just 12 minutes.
Insight: He's done for the night. The Kings will have to rely on Francisco Garcia (5.2 ppg) the rest of the way.
 
1/17/2013 11:05:00 AM
Description: Kings forward John Salmons is averaging 13.7 points, 2.5 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.8 threes per game over his last 13 contests.
Insight: Salmons scored 21 points Wednesday against Washington and is clearly locked into a starting spot in the Sacramento lineup. The Kings' guard rotation may be deep, but the team's small forward group is very shallow.
 
1/4/2013 10:10:00 PM
Description: Kings forward John Salmons has scored at least 20 points in two of the last four games, including 20 Friday against the Raptors.
Insight: Salmons didn't get an immediate bump into fantasy relevance by moving into the starting five on Nov. 18 -- he averaged just 7.8 ppg in his first 15 starts -- but he has benefited from injuries to two of Sacramento's top scorers Tyreke Evans and Marcus Thornton to score 13.8 points with 4.4 assists, 3.3 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.4 threes over his last nine games.
 
12/9/2012 10:27:00 AM
Description: Kings forward John Salmons scored a season-high 19 points on 6-of-10 shooting (3-of-4 3PT) Saturday against Portland.
Insight: Salmons also had a season-high 11 assists. The Kings are 5-4 since Salmons replaced James Johnson in the starting lineup but hasn't been much of a fantasy option.
 
4/2/2012 9:06:00 PM
Description: John Salmons is unavailable for tonight's game against Minnesota.
Insight: Salmons has now missed four games with this injury and it wouldn't surprise us if he missed four more. Salmons (7.9 ppg) hasn't been productive enough to garner much attention from fantasy owners this season.
 
3/30/2012 8:49:00 PM
Description: John Salmons will sit out Friday night's game against the Jazz with a hip injury. Salmons didn't play for the Kings on Wednesday night (117-112 loss to San Antonio) either.
Insight: Salmons is pretty unpredictable in terms of his fantasy production (7.5 ppg). He was listed as questionable earlier in the day, so though Salmons won't suit up tonight, it appears that he is close to a return.
 
4/9/2011 10:44:00 PM
Description: John Salmons got hot against a friendly foe by dropping 32 points, a block, and two threes in 40 minutes as the Bucks took care of the Cavs.
Insight: Salmons was a bit flaky and his owners probably needed some lemon pepper to spice things up over the course of the year. He is a player to target around pick 100 next year and should have a nice finish with his two games remaining.
 
2/24/2011 12:01:00 AM
Description: Salmons hit 7-of-14 shots and 11-of-13 free throws en route to 27 points tonight. He also had seven assists, four rebounds, and a steal in the game.
Insight: This was Salmons' best game of the year by far and owners should be well pleased with his productive night. (RapidDraft.com)
 
2/14/2011 10:42:00 PM
Description: John Salmons distributed the basketball nicely on Monday with 12 dimes to go with his 16 points in a team-high 45 minutes.
Insight: He can thank Carlos Delfino for a handful of those dimes by knocking down open looks. Salmons is apparently just as good in the microwave since he has been heating up quickly and should already be owned in competitive leagues.
 
2/8/2011 11:28:00 PM
Description: John Salmons did what most do on Monday by taking care of business against Toronto with 17 points, six boards, a steal, and a three in the easy win.
Insight: He played 35 minutes tonight and did enough to warrant a scoop in most standard formats. Yes, it was the Raptors, so it's not party time yet. It's highly unlikely he can have the second half he did last year, but who knows?
 
11/10/2010 10:04:00 PM
Description: Salmons had 16 points, two rebounds and three assists tonight.
Insight: After getting off to a slow start, Salmons has picked up his game and is averaging just over 15 points per game in the last four contests. (RapidDraft.com)
