Joseph posted seven points (3-3 FG, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, four assists and a steal across 15 minutes in Monday's win over the Pacers.
Joseph has yet to score in double digits since the season opener, but he's been remarkably consistent, having scored between six and nine points in each of his last nine contests. That kind of production won't make him useful in most formats, but he's been delivering steady production off the bench for the Kings as the backup to De'Aaron Fox.
Joseph finished with six points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six boards, and one steal in 28 minutes of a 102-94 loss to Houston on Saturday.
Joseph continues to spend a significant time on the court, playing more than 20 minutes for the fourth consecutive game, but he has been unable to turn that into points as he is still looking for his first double-digit scoring outing of the season. He did finish third best on the team in +/- in the contest. He'll face Golden State on Monday.
Joseph tallied 15 points (6-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four assists, three rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 29 minutes Wednesday in the Kings' 124-122 overtime victory over the Nuggets.
While Joseph filled out the box score nicely in the season opener, this sort of performance isn't anything that he can be counted on to provide with much regularity. In 24.4 minutes per game last season, Joseph averaged 6.4 points, 3.5 assists, 2.6 rebounds, 0.8 three-pointers, 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks, production that keeps him well off the radar in most fantasy leagues.
Joseph (back) was a full participant at practice Sunday, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
The 29-year-old was limited to one preseason game due to the back injury, but his return to practice Sunday's puts him on track for the season opener Tuesday. Joseph should be a reserve option in the backcourt for Sacramento this season.
Joseph (back) was able to participate in a non-contact practice Saturday and the Kings are hopeful he can play during Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Nuggets, Matt George of Locked on Kings reports.
Joseph was able to participate in just one preseason game. If he does end up missing the opener, more minutes will be available for Tyrese Haliburton and other guards.
Joseph (back) will not play Thursday against the Warriors, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.
Joseph will miss the Kings' final preseason game. He did get shots up in Wednesday's practice, however, so he could play during the Dec. 23 opener against the Nuggets.
Joseph (back) is out for Tuesday's preseason game against the Warriors, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.
Joseph will miss a second consecutive preseason game due to a sore back. DaQuan Jeffries (back) is also sidelined.
Joseph (back) will not play in Sunday's preseason game against Portland due to a sore back, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.
Joseph, Jabari Parker and DaQuan Jeffries are all listed as out due to a sore back, but none of the three are expected to miss extended time. Joseph played 14 minutes off the bench in Friday's opener, finishing with eight points and four assists.
Joseph is in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Pelicans, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
The 28-year-old will receive his second straight start with De'Aaron Fox (shoulder) sidelined. Joseph had four points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 28 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Rockets.
Joseph will come off the bench Thursday against the Pelicans, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Joseph started the Kings' loss to the Mavericks on Tuesday, but coach Luke Walton will put Nemanja Bjelica back in the starting five Thursday. Through the first three seeding games, Joseph has averaged 4.7 points, 6.0 assists and 2.3 rebounds in 28.0 minutes.
Joseph will start Tuesday's game against Dallas, Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee reports.
After an 0-2 start, the Kings will shake things up and go with Joseph at shooting guard, while Bogdan Bogdanovic shifts up to small forward, with Harrison Barnes at the other forward spot. Nemanja Bjelica will move to the bench.
Joseph managed 10 points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT), two rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes during Saturday's 131-123 loss to the Bucks.
Joseph reached double figures in scoring off the bench thanks to his plethora of trips to the charity stripe. Nevertheless, with De'Aaron Fox (ankle) back in the lineup going forward, Joseph is likely best reserved for use in deeper leagues given that he's more of a game manager than a stat-stuffer.
Joseph (heel) is active for Thursday's contest against Philadelphia.
The guard had been dealing with some minor heal pain, but as anticipated, Joseph will be available to play. He'll presumably continue to backup teammate DeAaron Fox. Joseph is averaging 6.5 points and 3.4 assists in 61 games played this season.
Joseph (heel) is probable for Thursday's game against the Sixers.
Joseph has been dealing with a heel injury since the end of February but has yet to miss a game as a result, a trend that figures to continue Thursday. Through the first two games of March, Joseph is averaging 9.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.0 steal in 21.5 minutes per tilt.
Joseph (heel) will play in Tuesday's tilt against the Wizards, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Joseph bruised his right heel in Sunday's victory over Detroit. However, the issue was not serious and he has been cleared for Tuesday's contest. Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual role providing depth at point guard.
Joseph is considered questionable for Tuesday's game against the Wizards due to a bruised right heel.
Joseph was banged up heading into Sunday's win over Detroit, but he was able to play through the ailment to contribute five points and three boards in 16 minutes. The Kings will wait until Tuesday morning to see how the foot feels before ruling on Joseph's status.
Joseph (heel) managed five points (2-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 16 minutes during Sunday's 106-100 win over the Pistons.
Joseph had been listed as questionable due to a right heel contusion and produced a modest stat line in limited minutes. De'Aaron Fox (abdomen) was cleared to play as well, and so long as Fox is healthy Joseph's appeal for fantasy purposes is minimal.
Joseph (heel) will try to play in Sunday's game against Detroit, Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee reports.
While he's officially active, it looks as though Joseph will truly be a game-time call, though there's more optimism about his chances to play after he successfully made it through pregame warmups. Even so, considering he'll likely be at less than 100 percent, it wouldn't be a surprise if Joseph ends up having his minutes limited.
Kings coach Luke Walton said Joseph (heel) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Pistons, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports. Walton admitted, however, that De'Aaron Fox (abdomen) -- who is also a game-time call -- is "much more likely to play" than Joseph.
Joseph made a spot start for the injured Fox in Thursday's loss to the Thunder before reverting to a lower-minute role off the bench in Friday's win over the Grizzlies, when Fox returned to the lineup. Both point guards are apparently still banged up coming out of the back-to-back set, with Joseph's bruised right heel being viewed as the greater concern. Assuming the veteran ends up sitting Sunday, Yogi Ferrell would likely serve as the top backup to Fox.
Joseph is questionable for Sunday's game against the Pistons with a right heel contusion, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
The 28-year-old presumably suffered the injury during Friday's win over Memphis when he had five points, four assists and one steal in 15 minutes. Joseph's participation at the morning shootaround could provide a better idea of his potential availability Sunday.
