      Kings' Ben McLemore: Scores eight points Wednesday

      McLemore posted eight points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, three steals, and one assist over 27 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Bucks. McLemore has started the Kings' last six games and has scored at least eight points in every contest. Nonetheless, McLemore is usually no better than a third option on offense whenever he's on the court and doesn't regularly contribute even league-average production in any category aside from steals, which continues to limit his value to deeper leagues.

      Kings' Ben McLemore: Scores season-high 17 in loss

      McLemore scored a season-high 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT) to go along with three assists and a rebound over 32 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Heat. After being exiled from the rotation following his early-season shooting struggles, McLemore is back in coach George Karl's good graces again and looks like he'll continue to hold down a starting role even with Darren Collison back from a hamstring injury. Don't count on McLemore to regularly see 30 minutes and shoot the ball as well as he did Thursday, but with his arrow on the rise, he might be worth a look in certain formats if he was dropped earlier this season.

      Kings' Ben McLemore: Scores 11 Wednesday

      McLemore scored 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-3 3Pt) in 18 minutes in Wednesday's loss to Atlanta. McLemore started his second consecutive game Wednesday even though Darren Collison (hamstring) returned from injury. Despite starting, McLemore logged just 18 minutes and got one rebound and one assist to go along with his scoring total. To date this season McLemore hasn't put up very good fantasy numbers, his season highs being 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals, and 15 points. Though he's started the past few games McLemore is still a risky fantasy option until he shows some consistency in his shooting and playing time.

      Kings' Ben McLemore: Moves into starting lineup

      McLemore will move into the starting lineup Sunday night, James Ham of CSNreports. McLemore has struggled out of the gate, connecting on just 39.6 percent of his field goal attempts in just 17.0 minutes per game. He's come off the bench for each of the last seven games, but after putting up 15 points in 25 minutes in Friday's win over the Nets, McLemore will move back into the starting lineup, as James Anderson shifts to the bench.

      Kings' Ben McLemore: Collects season-high 15 points Friday

      McLemore tallied 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, a rebound, and a steal over 25 minutes in Friday's 111-109 victory over the Nets. McLemore managed his season-high in scoring over 25 efficient minutes off the bench, which matched his longest stretch of time on the court to date in 2015-16. The former first-string shooting guard received considerably more minutes than starter James Anderson Friday, who only spent six minutes on the floor and was held scoreless. Kings head coach George Karl may continue to bring McLemore off the bench for the time being, and his inconsistent shooting and playing time presently make the third-year pro a risky fantasy option in essentially any format.

      Kings' Ben McLemore: Scores seven points off bench Monday

      McLemore scored seven points (2-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and grabbed one rebound over 13 minutes in Monday's loss to the Spurs. Darren Collison (hamstring) wasn't available for Monday's game and could miss further action, but it doesn't look like his absence will result in McLemore reclaiming his starting role. Coach George Karl went with James Anderson at shooting guard Monday, while McLemore actually saw less playing time than he did the game before with Collison available. The third-year guard is shooting just 35.6 percent from the field this season and doesn't offer much fantasy value while he remains locked into a bench role.

      Kings' Ben McLemore: Likely bound for the bench

      McLemore is expected to be removed from the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Suns, Bill Herenda of reports. McLemore's struggles through the Kings' first four games have been well documented, and had already resulted in a downgrade in playing time before the report surfaced. The third-year guard played 20 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Grizzlies, scoring only two points drop his season average to 4.3 per game. Though the Kings haven't officially announced McLemore's move to a bench role, Darren Collison seems like the most logical candidate to enter the starting lineup.

      Kings' Ben McLemore: Working with starters

      McLemore worked with the starters at Monday's practice, James Ham of CSN reports. McLemore has started each of the Kings' three games thus far, but after he played just 10 minutes Saturday agains the Clippers, speculation arose that Darren Collison or Marco Belinelli could be poised for a move into the starting five. While George Karl has not addressed the situation, it appears as though McLemore's starting job is safe, at least for the time being.

      Kings' Ben McLemore: Could start at shooting guard

      Coach George Karl is still deciding between McLemore and James Anderson for the starting shooting guard role, James Ham of Cowbell Kingdom reports. McLemore started all 82 games last season, and 55 games as a rookie, but after shooting just 43.7 percent from the field and 35.8 percent from three, his spot appears to be in jeopardy. Anderson is a bit of a journeyman and did not play in the NBA last season, but he could get the nod if Karl opts to use McLemore's scoring punch off the bench.
