    Kings' Kosta Koufos: Grabs 11 boards in 30 minutes during Monday's start

    Koufos contributed seven points (3-9 FG, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, one steal, and one block in 30 minutes during the Kings' 111-104 win over the Bucks on Monday. Koufos stepped into the staring lineup with DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) unable to participate on Monday. Though Koufos shot the ball poorly from the field and committed five fouls and two turnovers, he filled in fairly well in a highly important win while earning 30 minutes of playing time. If Cousins misses anymore games, Koufos could be a nice value play in daily leagues.

    Kings' Kosta Koufos: Will start in Monday's game

    Koufos will start in Monday's matchup with the Bucks, Jason Jones of the Sac Bee reports. Koufos is getting the start due to DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) not playing. Koufos is averaging just 14.5 minutes but he'll likely see significantly more minutes while in the starting lineup. Look for him to return to his role off the bench as soon as Cousins returns.

    Kings' Kosta Koufos: Plays only nine minutes in loss

    Koufos played nine minutes in Monday's double-overtime loss to the Hornets, finishing with no points (0-1 FG), three rebounds, and one block. Though Monday's game lasted two extra periods and DeMarcus Cousins and Willie Cauley-Stein both dealt with foul trouble, Koufos still couldn't find meaningful minutes, which speaks his to declining role on the team. The rise of Cauley-Stein -- who is averaging 32 minutes over the last four games -- in particular has led to Koufos' demise, as the veteran big man had previously been splitting playing time with rookie. During that same four-game span, Koufos has seen his averages fall to 4.8 points, five rebounds, and 0.8 blocks over 14.5 minutes.

    Kings' Kosta Koufos: Pushes for double-double in loss

    Koufos recorded nine points (4-6 FG, 1-2 FT) and 10 rebounds (five offensive) over 19 minutes in Wednesday's 109-97 loss to the Pelicans. Koufos ended up running with the starters out of the halftime break, replacing Quincy Acy at power forward. Despite that appointment, Koufos actually saw a couple fewer minutes than he's been averaging for the season (21.3), so even if he ends up receiving the starting nod for Thursday's game against the Jazz, he's far from a safe bet to see a substantial increase in court time.

    Kings' Kosta Koufos: Will attempt top play Wednesday

    Koufos (illness) will attempt to play Wednesday against the 76ers, Sean Cunningham of ABC10 Sacramentoreports. Koufos was able to work out prior to the game, and he will give it a go Wednesday after sitting out the previous game. He figures to see a few minutes off the bench Wednesday as he usually does when DeMarcus Cousins is in the starting lineup.

    Kings' Kosta Koufos: Doubtful to play with illness

    Koufos is considered doubtful to play Monday night against the Warriors due to illness. Koufos came down with a case of gastroenteritis, and the Kings' official game notes designate him as unlikely to play. The Ohio State product has been quiet of late, scoring eight points or fewer in each of his last eight games while compiling averages of 6.6 points and 5.4 rebounds per game in December.

    Kings' Kosta Koufos: Double-double off the bench Saturday

    Koufos scored 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 Ft) while adding 12 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 31 minutes off the bench during Saturday's loss to the Rockets. DeMarcus Cousins fouled out of the game and Willie Cauley-Stein (finger) was unavailable, leaving plenty of court time for Koufos. He won't get 30-plus minutes every night, but the center should see increased run while Cauley-Stein is sidelined and he could have some short-term value in deeper formats.

    Kings' Kosta Koufos: Heads back to bench and sees light action

    Koufos returned to a bench role for Monday's 112-98 win over the Mavericks, finishing with no points (0-3 FG, 0-4 FT), five rebounds, and an assist over 12 minutes. After averaging 29.3 minutes per game over the Kings' previous three contests, Koufos unsurprisingly saw his usage decline with the return of DeMarcus Cousins (back) on Monday. Cousins didn't seem to be facing any restrictions in the contest and finished with 38 minutes, leaving precious little time left over for the likes of Koufos and Willie Cauley-Stein (12 minutes). The latter two players will continue to share the frontcourt spot next to Cousins, but coach George Karl has also shown an inclination for using Rudy Gay at power forward while Cousins slots in at center, which could limit Koufos' playing time on any given night. As a result, Koufos doesn't really offer much value at present outside of deeper formats.

    Kings' Kosta Koufos: Collects 14 points Saturday

    Koufos collected 14 points (7-13 FG) seven rebounds, two steals and a block over 23 minutes in Saturday's 120-101 loss to the Warriors. Koufos received the start at center and posted his fifth consecutive double-digit scoring performance, as well as his third straight game shooting at 50 percent or better. The output on Saturday was particularly efficient, as Koufos was able to accomplish it over 23 minutes. The veteran continues to prove his worth during the extended opportunity he's been afforded by the absence of DeMarcus Cousins (back).
