John Salmons has been excused from the last five preseason games of the Sacramento Kings for personal reasons.

The team doesn't have an idea of when Salmons will return.

"No timetable," 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."

James Johnson, Francisco Garcia and Travis Outlaw will likely take a sizable portion of the small forward minutes, while Tyreke Evans will also play there when the Kings go small.
