Sacramento Kings forward Vince Carter has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Philadelphia 76ers with kidney stones, according to NBC Sports Bay Area's James Ham

Carter, 40, is averaging a career-low 2.6 points on 22.6 percent shooting from the field in 12.0 minutes per game so far this season. 

As those numbers suggest, the Kings won't be hindered significantly by Carter's absence. 

So long as he's out, Malachi Richardson and rookie Justin Jackson should pick up extra minutes in Sacramento's crowded wing rotation. 

Jackson, in particular, should be monitored after he dropped a career-high 16 points in 30 minutes during the Kings' 94-86 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday.
