Rudy Gay has suffered a full rupture of his left Achilles tendon and will undergo surgery.

Gay underwent an MRI on Thursday to confirm the injury suffered on Wednesday.

Gay, 30, made it clear coming into the season that he intended to walk away from the final season of his Kings contract, valued at $14.3 million in 2017-18, to opt for free agency in July.

With the injury and a long recovery time, Gay could instead decide to opt into his contract with the Kings.
