Kings' Nemanja Bjelica: Near double-double off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica provided 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt), nine rebounds and one steal across 18 minutes in the Kings' 118-115 preseason loss to the Trail Blazers on Friday.

Bjelica was ultra-efficient off the bench, posting his best rebound total over the three exhibitions he's played and flashing a hot hand for the second time during that brief span. It remains to be seen whether it will be Bjelica or second overall pick Marvin Bagley opening the season as the starting power forward, but both players should be in line for plenty of minutes in the coming campaign irrespective of depth chart slotting.

Kings' Nemanja Bjelica: Shines in preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica (knee) provided 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists and three blocks across 17 minutes in the Kings' 132-100 preseason win over Maccabi Haifa on Monday.

The veteran forward finally made his Kings debut after sitting out the first three exhibitions and turned in a solid effort during his modest time on the court. Bjelica is set to serve as an important part of the Sacramento second unit, with the possibility of playing up to three positions while likely serving as the primary backup to 2018 second overall pick Marvin Bagley at power forward. Bjelica has upped his minutes, points and rebounds over those of the prior season in each of the last two campaigns, so he retains some deep-league value heading into the regular season.

Kings' Nemanja Bjelica: Will make preseason debut Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica (knee) will make his preseason debut Monday against Maccabi, Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee reports.

Bjelica has missed the entirety of the preseason slate thus far due to a sore left knee, but after testing it out during Monday's morning shootaround, feels healthy enough to get back on the floor. Considering it's his first game back and it's still a meaningless preseason game, it wouldn't be surprising if Bjelica only saw limited minutes. That said, he should be a full go by the start of the regular season and will provide relief off the bench at both forward spots.

Kings' Nemanja Bjelica: Ruled out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica (knee) will not play in Friday's preseason game against the Warriors, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Bjelica is yet to play this preseason while nursing a sore left knee and is still listed as day-to-day. Fortunately for him, the Kings will have off until next Thursday when they return home to take on the Jazz, so Bjelica will have plenty of time off before he would have to take the court again.

Kings' Nemanja Bjelica: Out Thursday vs. Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjelica (knee) will remain out for Thursday's preseason matchup against the Lakers, Sean Cunningham of ABC10 (KXTV) Sacramento reports.

Bjelica is simply dealing with a sore left knee, so it doesn't appear to be something that could linger into the regular season. Still, the Kings will be cautious with him for now and he'll continue to carry a day-to-day designation after sitting out Thursday's contest. With the Kings heading into a back-to-back set, there's also a strong chance Bjelica is ruled out for Friday's tilt with the Warriors. Bjelica has just under two weeks to get healthy for the regular-season opener Oct. 17 against the Jazz.
