Kings' Buddy Hield: Role remains in question
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

When asked Tuesday if Hield will start at shooting guard, coach Luke Walton was noncommittal, Sports 1140 KHTK in Sacramento reports. "We got a lot of new faces here," Walton said. "We have to continue to look at what is going to be best for our team."

It's not exactly the most encouraging quote from Walton, who had his run-ins with Hield last season. Even with Bogdan Bogdanovic out of the picture, it appears as though Walton may consider using Hield off the bench, though if that's the case, it's unclear who would start ahead of him. The Kings are relatively thin in the backcourt outside of Hield and De'Aaron Fox, so the top candidates would be Cory Joseph or Tyrese Haliburton, the 12th overall pick in November's NBA Draft.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Scores 28 in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield posted 28 points (10-17 FG, 8-14 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 26 minutes during Thursday's 136-122 seeding game finale win over the Lakers.

Hield wasted no time getting shots up in the final game of the season after taking just 16 combined field-goal attempts over the prior two contests. It was his fourth performance of the season with at least eight made threes.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Scores 21, launches 14 threes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield posted 21 points (8-20 FG, 5-14 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 114-110 overtime loss to the Mavericks.

Hield scored 21 points, but he wasn't particularly efficient, making just three shots from inside the arc and not getting to the free-throw line. He launched up an absurd 14 three-point attempts, though he's hit or exceeded that mark six prior times this season. Sacramento is now 2-5 when he takes that many triples.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Scores 12 off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield went for 12 points (5-13 FG, 2-7 3PT) and five assists in Sunday's loss to the Magic.

Hield was slightly more efficient than in the Kings' first seeding game, but he still struggled in 20 minutes off the bench. Hield hit just two of his seven three-point attempts, and he committed three turnovers.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Awful shooting night Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield scored six points (2-13 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 1-3 FT) while adding four rebounds, an assist and a steal in 20 minutes off the bench during Friday's 129-120 loss to the Spurs.

While De'Aaron Fox and Bogdan Bogdanovic had little trouble exploiting a disjointed Spurs defense in their first game back from the break, combining for 63 points, Hield couldn't get his shot to fall and his cold spell played a large role in the Kings dropping a game they could ill afford to lose. The 27-year-old will need to regain his focus quickly if the team is going to stay afloat in the Western Conference playoff chase.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Strong effort Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield scored 17 points (7-16 FG, 3-10 3Pt) while adding eight rebounds and four assists in 27 minutes off the bench during Monday's scrimmage against the Clippers.

The fourth year off-guard has settled in as a major part of the Kings' backcourt, averaging a career-high 3.8 three-pointers per game before the shutdown. Hield's ability to create his own offense against potentially rusty defenders makes him a player to watch once the league resumes play.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Scores team-high 19 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield recorded 19 points (8-16 FG, 3-10 3Pt), five rebounds, a steal and an assist across 24 minutes in Wednesday's 104-98 scrimmage loss to the Heat.

Hield is the type of player destined to excel in the restart. If you buy into the COVID-19 intangibles, players who can create their own shot in space should see a slight uptick in production, and Hield's role as the off-guard is a perfect example. The absence of De'Aaron Fox and Harrison Barnes also contributed to his boosted stat line, but he's still expected to log his usual 30-plus minutes per game once the season restarts.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Does 2-on-2 with full contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield participated in two-on-two full-contact work during Wednesday's practice, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Coach Luke Walton also noted that Hield went through "75 percent" of practice.

Hield went through non-contact work Tuesday, so it appears he's being slowly integrated into full practice. All indications are that he'll be available for the Kings' first seeding game July 31 against the Spurs.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Goes through non-contact practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield (illness) participated in non-contact portions of Tuesday's practice, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.

Hield arrived in Orlando on Sunday and began his quarantine process. That has apparently been loosened, as he was allowed on the practice court, though he still stayed away from contact. It seems like Hield is on track to play when the Kings play their first game July 31 against the Spurs.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Arrives in bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield (illness) has arrived in Orlando and begun to quarantine, Jason Jones of The Athleticreports.

Hield tested positive for COVID-19 in late June, but once he's concluded his quarantine period he'll be eligible to rejoin teammates and return to practice. As part of clearing protocol, Hield will be required to test negative twice, separated by 24-hour periods, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Not yet in bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield (illness) has not arrived to the NBA bubble as of Friday, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Hield tested positive for COVID-19 in late June and has yet to clear protocol. Once he does so, he'll join the team in Orlando. From the start of February until the season went on pause, Hield averaged 18.3 points on 14.1 shots, 3.9 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.3 steals in 26.3 minutes.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Tests positive for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield has tested positive for COVID-19, Shams Charania and Sam Amick of The Athletic report.

Hield will now have about two weeks to quarantine and recover as the NBA is set to open up camp in early July in Orlando for the resumption of the season. He's the second Sacramento player to report a positive test, as Jabari Parker made the same announcement earlier Wednesday.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Launches flurry of threes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield contributed 22 points (8-14 FG, 6-9 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and two steals across 26 minutes in Saturday's 123-111 win over the Trail Blazers.

Although Hield has been relegated to a bench role in recent weeks, he remains one of the best three-point threats in the league and helped the Kings tie a team single-game record for three-pointers in the win. What's remarkable about the record is that it was achieved without a significant contribution from De"Aaron Fox, and that's a great indicator of the Kings' depth and ability to excel without their marquee point guard.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Posts 19 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield posted 19 points (7-17 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes during Sunday's 106-100 win over the Pistons.

Hield put on a solid performance, but his workload continues to drop, which remains a concern. Across the past six games, Hield is seeing just 23.5 minutes per contest, resulting in averages of 15.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.3 steals.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Solid scoring effort off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield went for 19 points (6-15 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 25 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 112-94 win at Golden State.

Hield has scored 15 or more points in all but two games since moving to the bench Jan. 24, and there's no question the streaky shooting guard has embraced his new role with the second unit. Hield is averaging 20.6 points per game on 48.4 percent shooting from deep since his role in the rotation changed 13 games ago.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Leads bench with 20 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield scored 20 points (5-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 8-8 FT) and added three rebounds, four assists and three steals in 27 minutes during Thursday's 129-125 win over the Grizzlies.

Hield wasn't as sharp from long distance as he was in the 3-Point Shootout during All-Star Weekend, but he made up for it with a perfect night from the free-throw line. The move to the bench hasn't hurt his production much, as he has at least 20 points in four of his last five contests.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Takes three-point title
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield defeated the Suns' Devin Booker, 27-26, Saturday in the final round of the Mountain Dew 3-Point Shootout at All-Star Weekend in Chicago.

The competition went down to Hield's 108th and final attempt of the night, with the Kings sharpshooter sinking his last shot to claim a narrow win over Booker. Hield earned his spot in the All-Star event by knocking down a career-high 3.8 triples per game at a 38.5 percent clip through his 54 appearances so far this season.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Leads way off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield accounted for 22 points (8-21 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine assists, one rebound and one steal in 31 minutes during Wednesday's loss to Dallas.

In what amounted to a disappointing all-around outing for the Kings, Hield managed to be a bright spot, eclipsing 20 points and dishing out a career-high nine assists. He's taken on his newly found role with the reserves in stride, averaging 22.2 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 29.1 minutes per game across 10 contests.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Splashes nine threes in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield notched 31 points (11-17 FG, 9-10 3Pt), six rebounds, five assists and two steals in 32 minutes during Saturday's 122-102 win over the Spurs.

Hield continues to make a huge impact off the bench, but the biggest area of improvement has been his shooting percentages. Since moving to the bench eight games ago, Hield has been making 52.8 percent of his shots and 51.8 percent of his three-point attempts while averaging 23.1 points in 28.5 minutes. Even though a move back to the starting five doesn't appear imminent, Hield's fantasy value doesn't look like it will be negatively impacted by playing on the second unit.

Kings' Buddy Hield: Thrives coming off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hield tallied 21 points (7-16 FG, 5-13 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and five assists in 36 minutes during Friday's 105-97 win over the Heat.

Hield topped the 20-point mark for the fourth time in seven games since he was moved to the bench, and his numbers have improved considerably. He is averaging 22.0 points per game while shooting 50.9 percent from the field during that stretch, as opposed to 17.3 points per game and 43.1 percent shooting in his previous seven starts. Considering his rate of success, Hield should remain as the Kings' leading scorer off the bench, though that shoudn't affect his fantasy upside moving forward.
