    Kings' Nemanja Bjelica: Plays 26 minutes in return

    Nemanja Bjelica (illness) put up 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and six rebounds in 26 minutes Sunday in the Sacramento Kings' 113-106 win over the Spurs.Bjelica missed the front end of the Kings' back-to-back set Saturday against the Rockets, but reclaimed his usual spot in the starting five in his return. The Kings held top backup Marvin Bagley (illness) out Sunday, so there's some risk of Bjelica seeing his minutes take a hit if both players are available in Tuesday's rematch with Houston.

    Nemanja Bjelica (illness) will not play in Saturday's game against the Rockets, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.Bjelica left Thursday's game against New Orleans early due to the illness, and it is still affecting him enough to keep him sidelined. With Harry Giles (thigh) also sidelined, look for Marvin Bagley to see some extra run, while Caleb Swanigan could also get some work.

    Kings' Nemanja Bjelica: Grabs 17 boards in crucial win

    Nemanja Bjelica put up 13 points (5-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 17 rebounds, five assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 36 minutes in Saturday's 112-103 win over the Suns.Saturday's game was by far Bjelica's best effort since regaining a starting role for the Sacramento Kings two weeks ago. Even as a starter, Bjelica's minutes and totals are often eclipsed by Marvin Bagley's effort off the bench, but the 30-year old big man got hot early and stayed on the court. Bagley's presence compromises his fantasy value and makes him a risky frontcourt play.

    Kings' Nemanja Bjelica: Double-doubles in favorable matchup

    Nemanja Bjelica compiled 14 points (6-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 123-121 loss to the Nets.Bjelica bucked the recent trend by playing 28 minutes Tuesday, finishing with 14 points and 10 rebounds. He had been trending down prior to Tuesday and this performance was certainly not expected. Both teams went small which factored into the increased playing time and owners should not get too excited about his outlook.

    Kings' Nemanja Bjelica: Role diminishes Sunday

    Nemanja Bjelica had just eight points, five rebounds, and two assists in 18 minutes during Sunday's 129-102 victory over the Bulls.Bjelica remained in the starting lineup Sunday but had just eight points in 18 minutes. He has been trending up with Marvin Bagley on the sidelines but has predictably regressed over the past three games. Bagley will remain on a minutes cap for at least a couple more games, however, there is no reason to hold onto Bjelica and streaming his spot makes much more sense.

    Kings' Nemanja Bjelica: Another double-double off bench

    Nemanja Bjelica finished with 15 points (5-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and a steal over 36 minutes in the Sacramento Kings' loss to the Wizards on Monday.Bjelica had a strong double-double in Monday's loss, shooting better than 50.0 percent from the field and from three in the process. Although he's fallen out of the starting lineup, he's played 29.8 minutes per game over his last four contests and produced a double-double in each of his last two, showing that he can still be productive in a complementary role.

    Kings' Nemanja Bjelica: Double-double off bench

    Nemanja Bjelica scored 13 points (5-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 29 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 102-94 win over the Knicks.After getting three DNPs in a four-game span at the end of February, the 30-year-old has worked his way back into the frontcourt rotation in March due to Marvin Bagley's knee injury. Bjelica now has six double-doubles on the season, and while he might have some short-term fantasy value in deeper formats, his role will shrink again once Bagley is healthy.

    Kings' Nemanja Bjelica: Out of starting five, rotation

    Nemanja Bjelica (coach's decision) failed to see any action in Thursday's 125-123 loss to the Warriors.Bogdan Bogdanovic moved into the starting five on the while Harrison Barnes shifted over to power forward on the top unit, resulting in Bjelica heading to the bench for the first time since December. There was some thought that coach Dave Joerger might have tweaked the starting five to create a better matchup versus Golden State, but Joerger revealed after the contest that he would stick with the same lineup moving forward. If that's the case, Bjelica will likely find himself out of the rotation entirely in most games, as the Sacramento Kings have little incentive to reduce the playing time for reserve rookie big men Marvin Bagley and Harry Giles.
