Bogdanovic finished with 17 points (6-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four assists, two rebounds, one steal and one block across 30 minutes in the Kings' 111-106 loss to the Lakers on Sunday. Bogdanovic's scoring total checked in second to that of Marvin Bagley's on the second unit and third overall on the Kings for the night. It was the 26-year-old's best point tally of March, as he's endured a rough month shooting-wise. Before Sunday's 50.0 percent showing, Bogdanovic had only hit or exceeded the mark twice during March, and he'd been under 40.0 percent in eight of 11 games overall.
Bogdanovic will come off the bench for Thursday's game against Boston, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports. The Kings are making some minor tweaks to their starting five, as Harrison Barnes will shift to small forward and Nemanja Bjelica is slated to start at power forward. Bogdanovic is averaging 11.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists over his previous five starts but will aim to provide a spark off the bench for Sacramento on Thursday evening.
Bogdanovic finished with 28 points (10-22 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, eight assists, two steals, and one block in 43 minutes during Wednesday's 141-140 loss to Milwaukee. Bogdanovic was back in the starting lineup Wednesday, putting up arguably his best performance of the season. Marvin Bagley (knee) shifted to the bench and then left the game early due to injury, affording Bogdanovic extra playing time. It appears as though Bagley will miss time with this injury which should see an increased role for Bogdanovic moving forward.
Bogdanovic will return to the starting five for Wednesday's game against the Bucks, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports. After starting two consecutive games, Bogdanovic moved to the bench in the Kings' last game. Marvin Bagley started in his place, and will return to the bench for Bogdanovic's return. It's unclear what the Kings' starting lineup will be going forward, however they could continue to play to the matchup, meaning Bogdanovic could bounce between the starting five and a bench role.
Bogdanovic contributed seven points (3-13 FG, 1-6 3Pt), six rebounds, six assists, and one steal in 29 minutes during Monday's 112-105 loss to Minnesota. Bogdanovic shifted back to the bench after starting the previous two games, allowing Marvin Bagley to enter the opening lineup. Bogdanovic struggled from the field, hitting just 3-of-13 from the floor in what was a disappointing night. He had scored in double-figures in six straight games prior to this and will likely be better next time around. His playing time generally stays the same whether he is coming off the bench or not and so this move to the bench will not hurt his production moving forward.
