Kosta Koufos: Headed overseas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufos agreed to a contract with CSKA Moscow on Friday, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

After testing the free agent market, it appears Koufos found the best opportunity for himself overseas, where he will be the highest paid American player in Europe. Injuries hampered Koufos' last season in the NBA, as he appeared in just 42 games for the Kings and played just 12.0 minutes per game.

Kings' Kosta Koufos: Ruled out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufos (calf) will not play Wednesday against the Blazers.

Koufos will remain out for a second straight game to end the season as he deals with a calf strain. With Harry Giles shut down, the Kings will likely lean heavily on Marvin Bagley and Willie Cauley-Stein, while second-year big man Caleb Swanigan could also see some run in what's ultimately a meaningless game.

Kings' Kosta Koufos: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufous (calf) is out for Sunday's game against New Orleans, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Koufos left Friday's contest against the Jazz early due to suffering a calf strain. As a result, the veteran center will be sidelined for Sunday's matchup. With one game remainining on the Kings' schedule, Koufos is averaging 3.7 points and 4.2 rebounds across 42 games played.

Kings' Kosta Koufos: Will not return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufos will not return to Friday's game against the Jazz due to a calf strain, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

Koufos provided six points (3-4 FG) and four rebounds across 12 minutes before suffering the injury. Expect an update on his status once more information is provided

Kings' Kosta Koufos: Grabs 11 boards in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufos collected two points (1-3 FG), 11 rebounds, and two assists in 18 minutes during Sunday's 113-106 win over the Spurs.

Koufos has appeared in six straight games, and he hauled in a season high rebounding total in this one. The absences of Marvin Bagley (illness) and Harry Giles (thigh) resulted in Koufos being called upon to play his highest minute total since Dec. 17. If either of the aforementioned young big men are ready to return to the lineup for Tuesday's matchup versus the Rockets, Koufos will be unlikely to earn such a significant share of playing time.

Kings' Kosta Koufos: Falls out of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufos (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Monday in the Kings' 115-107 win over the Trail Blazers.

It's the third consecutive game that Koufos has failed to leave the bench, signaling that he's lost his spot in the rotation to Harry Giles. While Koufos is a long-time favorite of coach Dave Joerger for the intangibles he provides, there isn't much incentive for the Kings to hand the 29-year-old regular playing time with the organization prioritizing the development of Giles and fellow rookie Marvin Bagley.

Kings' Kosta Koufos: Grabs eight boards in Friday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufos contributed four points (2-7 FG), eight rebounds, and two blocks in 15 minutes during Friday's 102-99 win over the Grizzlies.

Koufos played pretty well in this his first start of the season, albeit in limited minutes. The lineup change likely had more to do with matching the opponent's super-sized front line of Jaren Jackson and Marc Gasol than promoting Koufos. With that being said, he swatted a season high block total while matching his best rebounding effort of the campaign as well. Moreover, Koufos has hauled in at least eight boards in three of the last four contests.

Kings' Kosta Koufos: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufos will get the start at center for Friday's game against the Grizzlies, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.

The Kings have opted to go with a big in the frontcourt to counter the Grizzlies by starting bout Koufos and Willie Cauley-Stein. It will be the veteran big man's first start of the season.

Kings' Kosta Koufos: Scoreless in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufos had zero points (0-3 FG), seven rebounds, one assist and one block in 15 minutes of action Saturday against the Pacers.

The veteran didn't make much of an impact, but he returned to the court for the first time in more than three weeks after a calf injury sidelined him for eight games. Expect Koufos to continue to serve as a backup to Willie Cauley-Stein, though he's unlikely to see enough minutes to be fantasy-relevant.

Kings' Kosta Koufos: Available Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufos (calf) is available for Saturday's game against the Pacers, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Koufos has missed the past eight games with a strained right calf, but will be able to play Saturday. In seven games this season, Koufos has averaged 4.0 points and 5.4 rebounds in 14 minutes per game as the backup center behind Willie Cauley-Stein.

Kings' Kosta Koufos: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufos (calf) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Thunder, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area report

Kings' Kosta Koufos: Out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufos (calf) is out Saturday against the Rockets, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

A sore right calf will sideline Koufos for a third straight game. In his stead, Harry Giles remains a candidate to see additional minutes.

Kings' Kosta Koufos: Out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufos (calf) is out Friday at Memphis, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Koufos will be absent for the second straight game due to calf soreness. The veteran just can't seem to say healthy right now, as he also missed the first six games of the year because of a hamstring injury. Teammate Harry Giles may likely see more minutes with Koufos out.

November 12, 2018 02:33 PM
Kings' Kosta Koufos: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufos will not play Monday against the Spurs due to a sore calf, Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee reports.

Koufos dealt with a hamstring injury earlier in the season, but he's played double-digit minutes in each of the last seven games. It's unclear when, exactly, he picked up the calf issue, but the veteran will not be available Monday, meaning Marvin Bagley and Nemanja Bjelica could pick up a few additional minutes.

Kings' Kosta Koufos: Scores eight points in Thursday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufos collected eight points (4-7 FG), four rebounds, one steal, and one block in 12 minutes during Thursday's 146-115 win over the Hawks.

Koufos made his season debut during Monday's win over the Heat, recording six points, four boards, and one steal in 12 minutes in that one before posting four points, five rebounds, one dime, and one block in 13 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Magic. Given the team's logjam down low, Koufos should not be expected to see his minutes increased barring significant frontcourt injuries.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koufos (hamstring) will be available for Monday's tilt with the Heat, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports

After missing the first six games of the season with a hamstring strain, Koufos will be available Monday. The Kings are prioritizing the development of their young players so Koufos will likely be relegated to a minimal bench role this season.
