Hield has been shouldering the scoring responsibilities alongside De'Aaron Fox for a young Kings squad that's proving to be one of the best offensive units in the Western Conference. He tied a season-high on Friday by knocking down five shots from beyond-the-arc and appears to be ready for an even larger role in the offense. It will be interesting to watch Hield continue developing as a fantasy option alongside Fox.
Hield had 20 points (7-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 17 minutes during Tuesday's 122-105 victory over Phoenix.
Hield led the Kings with 20 points in just 17 minutes of playing time Tuesday. This game was over at quarter time and the Kings ran with the second, and even third units for the majority of the second half. Hield continues to have a stellar season currently averaging over 18 points per game on 47 percent shooting.
Hield posted 18 points (6-16 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds and four assists across 34 minutes in Saturday's 111-110 win over the Pacers.
Hield continues to struggle from beyond the arc, as he's converted only 19 percent of his 21 3-point attempts over the past three games. If the trend continues, it's possible that Bogdan Bogdanovic and Justin Jackson's roles could increase further, but at present, his starting job isn't in jeopardy.
Hield's night could have been much bigger had he enjoyed even modest success from long distance, but he came up empty from behind the arc for the first time all season. The emerging third-year wing has been one of the Kings' most improved players and shot an impressive 47.8 percent (including 42.5 percent from three-point range) this season, so Thursday's struggles can safely be dismissed as a bump in the road. Moreover, Hield still managed to just hit double digits in the scoring column, extending his streak of doing so to 17 games.
Hield moved to shooting guard while Bogdan Bogdanovic slid into the starting lineup at small forward, and the former provided another solid performance, albeit while seeing a slight drop in overall usage. The 24-year-old's 10 shot attempts were his fewest since Oct. 23, but he still managed to hit the 50.0 percent mark, fifth time in the last six games he's managed to do so. Hield continues to offer strong production across the stat sheet in what has been a breakout season, and he'll look to get back to his usual level of offensive involvement versus the Clippers on Thursday.
