  • Kings' Malik Monk: Suffers sprained MCL

    Monk has been diagnosed with a sprained right MCL and is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Monk will miss the rest of the regular season, but depending on how quickly he recovers, he could be available at some point in the postseason if Sacramento is able to advance out of the Play-In Tournament. In the meantime, Keon Ellis and Davion Mitchell could be asked to soak up more minutes in the backcourt. Monk will finish the regular season with averages of 15.4 points, 5.1 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 2.1 three-pointers in 26.0 minutes per game over 72 appearances.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Set to miss time with sprained knee

    Monk is feared to have suffered a sprained MCL in his right knee during Friday's 107-103 to the Mavericks, but he'll undergo further testing before the Kings provided an updated diagnosis of his injury Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Monk suffered his knee injury early in the first quarter of the contest after colliding with Luka Doncic. While fantasy managers should look out for an official update from Sacramento, losing the likely Sixth Man of the Year would be a big blow for the Kings' playoff hopes. Monk is averaging 15.4 points, 5.1 assists, 2.9 rebounds, 2.1 three-pointers, 0.6 steals and 0.5 blocks in 26.0 minutes per game through his 72 appearances.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Leaves early with knee injury

    Monk won't return to Friday's game versus Dallas with a right knee injury. He finished with two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and one rebound in one minute.

    Monk collided with Luka Doncic early in the first quarter and his right knee buckled awkwardly. Though Monk was able to walk off the court under his own power, the Kings ruled him out for the remainder of the game fairly quickly after he checked out of the contest. Until more is known, Monk should be considered questionable for Sunday against the Jazz.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Goes to locker room

    Monk left Friday's game against Dallas with an apparent right knee injury and went to the locker room with 4:14 remaining in the first quarter.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Pops for 20 in Washington

    Monk ended with 20 points (6-13 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 7-7 FT), one rebound, four assists, one block and one steal in 29 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 109-102 loss to the Wizards.

    The 26-year-old guard struggled to find his shot from the outside but still reached 20 points for the sixth time in 11 March contests. Monk is averaging 20.9 points, 5.4 assists, 4.0 boards and 2.2 threes on the month as he continues to build a strong case for the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year Award.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Struggles from deep Wednesday

    Monk closed Wednesday's 123-89 win over the Raptors with 17 points (6-12 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal over 20 minutes.

    Monk ended with a solid stat line across the board, but the sharpshooter had a rough outing from deep, making just one of his seven attempts from beyond the arc. There's a strong chance this was nothing more than an off night for Monk, as he's averaging 21.0 points per game while coming off the bench since the beginning of March.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Goes for 28 points off bench

    Monk amassed 28 points (10-19 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT), six rebounds and six assists over 39 minutes during Monday's 121-111 overtime win over the Grizzlies.

    Monk struggled from three-point range, but that didn't stop him from posting another impressive stat line, with the veteran sharpshooter reaching the 20-point mark in three of his last five appearances. One of the most productive second-unit scorers in The Association, Monk holds substantial value in most formats due to his scoring prowess and important role in the Kings' rotation. He's averaging 21.4 points, 5.9 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game since the beginning of March.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Available to return

    Monk (neck strain) briefly exited Wednesday's game against the Lakers during the first half, but he will be available for the second half, Brenden Nunes of KHTK Sactown Sports 1140 reports.

    Monk made a quick trip to the locker room after being tied up with Anthony Davis during a fastbreak but quickly returned to the Kings' bench. He'll be available to play in the closing two periods.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Pours in 25 points from bench

    Monk provided 25 points (9-19 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds and five assists in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 129-94 victory over the Bucks.

    Monk added to his resume for Sixth Man of the Year with another brilliant performance. Keegan Murray's (ankle) injury required an extra push from the bench, but Monk delivers the goods nightly. Monk and De'Aaron Fox would probably not fare as well if they were both in the first unit, and the team has implemented Monk's' role perfectly. He's versatile enough to cover three positions as a reserve.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Goes for 20 points Sunday

    Monk racked up 20 points (8-16 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, five assists and two steals across 27 minutes during Sunday's 112-104 loss to the Rockets.

    Monk struggled with his outside shot and made just two of his eight three-point attempts, but he still posted a strong stat line while reaching the 20-point mark for the third time over his last five appearances. Monk is averaging 22.8 points per game since the beginning of March and has provided a massive boost to the Kings' second unit while being a solid fantasy option for managers who decided to stick with him when things weren't going so well.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Teases triple-double off bench

    Monk finished Thursday's 131-129 win over the Spurs with 18 points (6-17 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, nine assists, one block and one steal across 30 minutes off the bench.

    The 26-year-old wing did commit six turnovers, but it was still a very impressive performance as Monk led the Kings' second unit in scoring and rebounding while tying Domantas Sabonis for the team lead in assists. Monk's produced a career-high 5.3 assists a game this season, and his overall numbers have spiked since the beginning of February -- he's averaging 19.5 points, 5.4 assists, 3.9 boards, 2.1 threes and 0.8 steals over the last 16 games.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Pours in 26 points

    Monk produced 26 points (10-19 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, eight assists and two steals over 32 minutes during Wednesday's 130-120 win over the Lakers.

    The votes for Monk to be Sixth Man of the Year should be numerous as he continues to ball out with the Kings' second unit. He played 32 minutes in the contest, holding teammate Kevin Huerter to only two points in 12 minutes on the floor. Monk is also a key pivot when Harrison Barnes takes a seat, allowing for a full game's worth of production.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Erupts for season-high 39

    Monk produced 39 points (16-29 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one steal over 33 minutes off the bench during Friday's 124-120 overtime victory over Minnesota.

    After a fairly quiet first half, Monk poured in 35 of his points after halftime as he took over a Kings backcourt that was missing De'Aaron Fox (knee) for a second straight game. It was the best performance of the season for Monk, but he's been on an impressive roll since the beginning of February. Over the last 13 games, the 26-year-old guard has scored more than 20 points eight times, averaging 19.8 points, 4.8 assists, 3.6 boards and 2.0 threes in 28.1 minutes a contest while shooting 50.0 percent from the floor.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Cold from deep

    Monk logged eight points (4-10 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 0-2 FT), two rebounds, seven assists and two steals over 21 minutes during Monday's 121-110 loss to the Heat. He had only one turnover as well.

    Monk failed to hit a three for the third time in his past five games, continuing a slump in which he is connecting on just 13.0 percent of 4.6 threes over that span. Sacramento travels to Denver on Wednesday, and Monk delivered just six points on 2-for-11 shooting in his last contest at the Nuggets.
