Suns' Chimezie Metu: Logs two blocks in victory
Metu chipped in four points (2-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and two blocks in 12 minutes during Wednesday's 123-115 victory over the Warriors.
Metu played double-digit minutes for the first time this season and didn't have stellar offensive production, but he recorded two blocks in the comfortable win. However, he's unlikely to see a significant role for the Suns moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Chimezie Metu: Back to bench
Metu will return to the bench for Thursday's preseason game against the Blazers.
The Suns are throwing Kevin Durant back out there after giving him a rest on Tuesday. Metu has had a solid preseason so far with averages of 11.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.0 blocks and 2.0 three-pointers through two games.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Chimezie Metu: Enters starting lineup
Metu is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's preseason game against Denver, Duane Rankin of Arizona Central reports.
With Kevin Durant, Devin Booker and Bradley Beal resting, the Suns will go with a more traditional lineup with Metu alongside Jusuf Nurkic in the frontcourt. Metu made a nice impression in the preseason opener Sunday, scoring 14 points in 19 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Chimezie Metu: Headed to Phoenix
The Suns signed Metu to a one-year contract Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Metu will head to Phoenix after spending the first five seasons of his career in Sacramento. In 2022-23, he averaged 4.9 points and 3.0 rebounds in 10.4 minutes across 66 appearances. Metu will likely compete for backup center role behind Deandre Ayton in 2023-24.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Chimezie Metu: Solid production off bench
Metu notched 15 points (5-8 FG, 5-9 FT) and nine rebounds over 17 minutes during Friday's 119-97 loss to the Warriors.
With Sacramento resting the majority of its regulars, Metu saw an increased role off the bench. He scored a season-high 15 points and tied his season-best mark with nine boards. When he's played at least 15 minutes this season (10 games), Metu has averaged 6.5 points and 6.0 rebounds in 16.4 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Chimezie Metu: Tallies seven points in win
Metu provided seven points (3-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) over eight minutes during Wednesday's 117-114 victory over the Bulls.
Metu has been held under 10 minutes of playing time in four of his last six appearances, but he was efficient from the floor with his limited opportunities during Wednesday's narrow win. Across his last six outings, he's averaged 6.0 points and 1.7 rebounds in 9.5 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Chimezie Metu: Nearly double-doubles
Metu closed with eight points (4-4 FG, 0-1 FT), nine rebounds and two steals in 21 minutes during Friday's 176-175 double-overtime victory over the Clippers.
Metu picked up some extra run Friday with Domantas Sabonis fouling out after 31 minutes. Metu usually sees minutes in the low teens most nights and that's likely to be the case Sunday against the Thunder.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Chimezie Metu: Shines as backup center
Metu finished Sunday's 136-104 loss to the Pelicans with seven points (2-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 10 minutes.
Even though none of the Kings' starters played more than 30 minutes in the blowout loss, Metu didn't see an expanded role as the backup to starting center Domantas Sabonis. Instead, head coach Mike Brown turned the game over to most of his deep reserves in the fourth quarter, with Richaun Holmes playing the final 10:19 of the contest while Metu rode the bench. Metu at least managed to produce well during his time on the floor, and he looks to have clearly supplanted Holmes for the No. 2 role at center. Even so, Metu likely won't be the fantasy radar outside of the deepest of leagues unless Sabonis misses time at some point.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Chimezie Metu: Available Wednesday
Metu (knee) will play in Wednesday's matchup with the Raptors, Sean Cunningham of Fox 40 Sacramento reports.
Metu will officially be active for Wednesday's tilt after expressing optimism following morning shootaround regarding his return. He sat out Monday's contest with a bruised left knee that he sustained in the Kings' previous game but should be a full go off the bench Wednesday. In the three games leading up to the injury, Metu averaged 6.0 points and 4.3 rebounds across 13.3 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Chimezie Metu: Expected to play Wednesday
Metu (knee) remains listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Raptors, but he expressed optimism he'll be available to play after taking part in the Kings' morning shootaround, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.
Barring any setbacks leading up to the 10 p.m. ET opening tip, Metu looks like he'll be available off the bench after a bone bruise in his left knee kept him from playing in Monday's 133-100 win over the Grizzlies. Before sitting out due to the injury, Metu had appeared in each of the Kings' previous seven games and averaged 5.3 points and 3.6 rebounds in 10.6 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Chimezie Metu: Questionable Wednesday
Metu (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

Kings' Chimezie Metu: Unavailable Monday
Metu (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Grizzlies, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

Kings' Chimezie Metu: Participates in shootaround
Metu (knee) was active in Monday's shootaround ahead of their matchup with the Grizzlies, Sean Cunningham of Fox 40 Sacramento reports.
Metu was handed a questionable designation Monday after exiting Saturday's contest with a left knee injury. He underwent an MRI which came back clean, but considering the Kings are fully healthy and Metu owns a depth role, it would not be surprising to see him sit. If that happens, Trey Lyles and Richaun Holmes could pick up extra minutes off the bench.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Chimezie Metu: Dealing with bone bruises in knee

Kings' Chimezie Metu: Won't return Saturday
Metu has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the 76ers due to a left knee injury, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.
Metu appeared to hyperextend his left knee on a drive to the basket during the second quarter, but the Kings likely won't have an update on the nature of his injury until evaluating him after Saturday's contest. Before departing, Metu posted two points (1-2 FG) and two turnovers over his five minutes of court time.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Chimezie Metu: Scoreless in win
Metu finished with zero points (0-3 FG), one rebound and one steal across four minutes during Friday's 122-113 victory over the Pistons.
Metu only saw four minutes of playing time and missed all three of his shot attempts. He's almost completely fallen out of the rotation at this point and doesn't garner any fantasy relevancy outside of the deepest of leagues.... See More ... See Less
