Bjelica put up 14 points (6-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and a block across 30 minutes Sunday in the Kings' 118-113 loss to the Raptors. Bjelica had been a standout fantasy performer for about a month-long stretch earlier in the season, when Marvin Bagley missed time or was limited by a sore left foot, but the 31-year-old hasn't been quite as good since Bagley aggravated the injury Jan. 20. Though Bjelica remains locked in as the Kings' clear top option at power forward, he was averaging just 7.5 points and 5.5 boards in the first four games of March before coming through with the double-double Sunday. Even in this relatively good performance, he still failed to knock down a three-pointer. Furthermore, the block was his first since the All-Star break. Bjelica no longer looks like the must-roster option in 12-team leagues that he was earlier this season, especially with the Kings set to play only two games this week.
Bjelica ended with six points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and two steals in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 133-126 victory over Washington. Bjelica continues his statistical free-fall, struggling to find any rhythm in the win. The playing time has been apparent all season as the Kings have battled through multiple injuries to key players. After a long stretch of meaningful production, Bjelica has fallen off over the past few weeks. In fact, over the past two weeks, he is just the 182nd-ranked player. At this point, his spot on a 12-team roster would be better served for streaming purposes.
Bjelica posted seven points (3-10 FG, 1-6 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists and one steal across 24 minutes during Sunday's 106-100 win over the Pistons. Bjelica regressed after two good games in which he combined for 31 points, 20 rebounds, four assists and two steals. Since the All-Star break, he's averaging 9.5 points, 7.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.8 threes.
Bjelica totaled 16 points (6-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and a block in 33 minutes during Monday's loss to the Bucks. Bjelica continues to be a bright spot in what has amounted to a disappointing season thus far for the Kings. He's on a four-game run of double figures and is getting buckets from across the floor during that stretch. On the year, the 31-year-old's posting 12.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.1 threes in 28.5 minutes per contest.
Bjelica notched 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block in 32 minutes during Saturday's 122-102 win over the Spurs. Bjelica has scored in double digits in his last three games, a feat he has accomplished in all but five games since the calendar flipped to 2020. He is doing it at an efficient rate as well, as Bjelica is making 61.5 percent of his shots while connecting on 71.4 percent of his threes during that aforementioned three-game run.
