Ferrell generated 19 points (7-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five assists, two rebounds and one steal across 41 minutes in the Kings' 118-115 preseason loss to the Trail Blazers on Friday. Ferrell remained in the starting five Friday despite the return of Frank Mason III to the first unit, and he ended up bouncing back from a lackluster four-point outing in his most recent game. The scoring total was the third-year pro's best since the preseason opener against the Suns, when he'd racked up 26 points. Ferrell will open the season backing up starting point guard De'Aaron Fox (illness), although that role should still afford him a solid allotment of minutes.
Ferrell managed four points (0-3 FG, 4-4 FT), one rebound and one assist across 19 minutes in the Kings' 132-93 preseason loss to the Jazz on Thursday. Ferrell drew the start with Frank Mason III sliding to the bench Thursday, but he was unable to generate much during his time on the court. The third-year pro should see some solid minutes behind De'Aaron Fox at point guard this coming season, and as he's demonstrated on multiple occasions throughout his brief career, he's capable of serving as a solid source of scoring and assists with enough playing time.
Ferrell will start Thursday's preseason game against the Jazz, David Locke of the Jazz Radio Network reports. Ferrell is penciled into the starting five along with De'Aaron Fox as the Kings give Frank Mason the night off. Ferrell will begin the regular season as the backup point guard behind Fox.
Ferrell (thumb) scored six points (3-9 FG, 0-4 3PT, 0-2 FT) and recorded three steals in Monday's preseason contest against Maccabi Haifa. It wasn't an overly noteworthy performance by the former Indiana product, but the news here is that Ferrell was able to play after nursing a sprained right thumb. The backup point guard should be considered healthy moving forward.
Ferrell (thumb) is considered probable for Monday's matchup with Maccabi Haifa, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Ferrell is nursing a sprained right thumb, but he was available to play in Friday's loss to the Warriors, and the expectation is that he'll be available again Monday. Look for official confirmation closer to game-time.
