Kings' Buddy Hield: Good to go Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield (illness) is available and will start in Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

Hield received an IV on Wednesday and is set to return after a one-game absence due to illness. The 28-year-old is averaging 16.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists across 34.5 minutes per game this season. Tyrese Haliburton will shift back to the bench.

Kings' Buddy Hield: On track to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Luke Walton said he believes Hield (illness) will play Wednesday against the Wizards, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 28-year-old missed Monday's matchup with the Pelicans due to the illness, but he received an IV on Wednesday and is expected to retake the court. Tyrese Haliburton will likely receive another start should Hield be forced to miss a second straight game.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Questionable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield (illness) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Wizards.

Hield missed Monday's contest against the Pelicans, and he's at risk of sitting out again Wednesday with a non-COVID illness. If that's the case, Tyrese Haliburton could get another start.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Sidelined due to illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield (illness) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Pelicans.

Hield was a late addition to the team's injury report, and an illness is going to force him to miss his first game of the season. WIth Hield out, Terence Davis and Justin James could see increased workloads.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Makes four treys in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield notched 19 points (7-17 FG, 4-13 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven assists, five rebounds and a steal across 34 minutes in Saturday's loss against the Jazz.

Hield might lack accuracy from time to time, but he's one of the most productive three-point shooters in the league. He has drained at least two threes in all but one of his games since the beginning of March and has made four or more treys in each of his last four contests while making 40.8 percent of his long-range attempts during that stretch.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Pours in five threes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield produced 15 points (5-13 FG, 5-12 3Pt) and four rebounds across 33 minutes in Thursday's 113-101 loss to the Pistons.

As is often the case for the sharpshooter, all five of Hield's converted shots came from beyond the arc in the loss. He currently leads the league with 209 three-pointers made this season, besting players like Stephen Curry and Damian Lillard in the category.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Does damage from beyond arc
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield registered 18 points (6-17 FG, 6-16 3Pt), seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block across 32 minutes in Monday's 116-106 loss to the Timberwolves.

As per usual, Hield's offense was almost solely concentrated from beyond the arc. He knocked down at least four triples for the fourth time in five games, but his reliance on perimeter shots will continue to push down his field-goal percentage. Hield has converted only 39.4 percent of his attempts over that five-game stretch, which is right in line with his season-long rate (39.6 percent).

Kings' Buddy Hield: Drops 20 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield finished with 20 points (7-13 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes during Monday's 132-115 victory over San Antonio.

Hield was one of three Kings players to score at least 20 points, and he did so on efficient shooting. As is standard for Hield, he failed to produce elsewhere, and that is the primary reason his fantasy value remains capped. He remains a must-roster player, but his upside is certainly not what it once was.

March 26, 2021 03:48 PM
Kings' Buddy Hield: Solid in lopsided victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield produced 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-9 3Pt), six rebounds, six assists and a blocked shot across 30 minutes in Thursday's 141-119 win over the Warriors.

Although Hield remained in Sacramento after the trade deadline, the day's events may not result in a net positive for the sharpshooting guard. Hield's proficiency with the three-pointer will ensure a significant role in the offense, but he will probably be the player most affected by the acquisition of Delon Wright. Tyrese Haliburton is a rising star and De'Aaron Fox will never lose time, so it stands to reason that Wright's arrival could impact Hield the most. For Hield managers, it is a situation that warrants monitoring over the next couple of weeks.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Scores inefficient 14 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield scored 14 points (5-18 FG, 3-14 3Pt) with three rebounds and three assists in a 110-108 victory over the Hawks on Wednesday.

Hield wasn't very efficient from three but was able to extend his streak of double-figure scoring to 12 games. The guard makes his impact in fantasy leagues as a true volume scorer, though he's also pitched in a handful of rebounds and assists recently. Over his last 12 games, Hield has averaged 20.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.0 assists while shooting 42.9 percent from three.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Connects on five treys in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield went for 19 points (7-17 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one block across 38 minutes Monday in the win over the Cavs.

Hield paced the Kings with his five triples, and he's now hit multiple three-pointers in 15 straight contests. The majority of Hield's scoring comes from beyond the arc (career-high 4.0 3PM/G), though he's shooting a career-worst 38.2 percent from deep.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Leads team with seven threes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield produced 25 points (9-21 FG, 7-13 3Pt), five rebounds and three assists across 34 minutes in Saturday's 129-105 loss to the Sixers.

Hield's hot hand from long range continued Saturday. After notching six threes against the Celtics on Friday, Hield kept it going with another standout performance from beyond the arc in Saturday's loss. His dead-eye shooting helped him lead the team in scoring, and that will often be the case when the Oklahoma product is running hot from downtown.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Sharp shooting from deep
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield finished with 22 points (8-15 FG, 6-13 3Pt), five boards, three assists and two blocks in 38 minutes of a 107-96 win against Boston on Friday.

Hield pulled his three-point shooting for March back above 40 percent with his six makes in his team's dominant win. Hield gets his looks in the Kings offense, so as long as he's on the floor, he has the ability to score in a hurry. He'll face the 76ers on Saturday.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Hits five triples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield dropped 23 points (8-14 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists and two steals across 37 minutes Monday in the loss to the Hornets.

Hield bounced back after scoring just 10 points on 4-for-16 shooting in his last outing. Since the month changed to March, Hield has scored at least 20 points while hitting five triples in four of five contests. He's also done his part on the boards, grabbing six rebounds four times over that span.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Muted effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield had 10 points (4-16 FG, 2-11 3Pt) in Saturday's loss to Atlanta.

It was a rough shooting night for Hield, who hit just two of his 11 three-point attempts, while failing to reach 20 points for the first time since Feb. 26. Still, Hield managed to hit multiple three-pointers for the 10th straight game.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Contributes across board Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield totaled 20 points (7-19 FG, 5-13 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven assists, six rebounds, two steals and a blocked shot across 38 minutes Thursday in a win over Houston.

Hield's scoring output was his lowest in four games, but he did a solid job getting his teammates involved and crashing the boards with seven dimes and six boards. The sharpshooter also drained five more threes, giving him a total of 25 makes from deep over his past four contests. Hield ranks third in the NBA in that category this season with 145 total treys.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Drains five more threes Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield totaled 21 points (8-17 FG, 5-12 3Pt), six rebounds and three assists in a loss to the Trail Blazers on Thursday.

Hield finished an up-and-down first half of the campaign with his best three-game stretch, averaging 26.7 points and 6.7 three-pointers per contest since Feb. 28. He has also stepped up as a distributor in those three games, posting 5.3 assists per contest. Perhaps most importantly, the sharpshooter hasn't crashed the field-goal percentage of fantasy squads that roster him lately, shooting 59.2 percent from the field over the three-game span -- a sharp contrast to his overall 37.8 percent mark on the campaign.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Will play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield (ankle) will play in Thursday's game against Portland, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.

Hield has been listed as questionable ahead of the last few games but hasn't needed to miss any time yet despite the ankle issue. Hield has been an ironman in the first half of the season, not missing a single game to this point.

March 4, 2021 04:28 PM
Kings' Buddy Hield: Questionable vs. Portland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Trail Blazers, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports.

Hield was also initially questionable for Wednesday's action against the Lakers, but he ended up playing 42 minutes and posting 29 points, six rebounds, six assists and one steal. If the sharpshooter sits out Thursday, there could be more minutes for Cory Joseph, Kyle Guy and DaQuan Jeffries.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Another strong performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield delivered 29 points (11-15FG, 7-11 3Pt), six rebounds, six assists and a steal across 42 minutes in Wednesday's 123-120 win over the Lakers.

Hield has now scored 25-plus points in two straight games, leaving behind a poor stretch of four games where he was unable to score more than 14 points. Hield has always been a reliable source for scoring numbers but has been inconsistent, and that certainly limits his upside even when he's perfectly capable of delivering strong numbers on a nightly basis.
