The Sacramento Kings finally snapped the longest postseason drought in American sports after finishing with a 48-34 regular season record and the third overall seed in the West. After 16 straight years of missing the playoffs, the Kings won the Pacific Division title for the first time since the 2002-03 season, in which their roster boasted fan favorites such as Chris Webber, Peja Stojakovic, Vlade Divac, and Mike Bibby.

Sacramento’s reward for snapping their playoff drought is a first-round matchup with the defending NBA champions Golden State Warriors, who sit in the No. 6 spot. With just a two-hour drive separating these two franchises, Game 1 of the series is scheduled for Saturday, April 15 at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC.

Let’s take a look at the Kings injury report and how it may impact the series.

Sacramento’s roster is largely intact when it comes to the injury report, with just a handful of players in the backcourt banged up. Point guard Matthew Dellavedova (finger) underwent surgery to repair a fractured right index finger and is listed as out for the Kings’ first-round matchup. He is currently without a timetable to return to action.

Guard Davion Mitchell missed Sunday’s regular-season finale against the Denver Nuggets with knee soreness and is likely to play in Saturday’s matchup against Golden State. He is currently listed as day-to-day.
