Mason (oblique) is listed out for Saturday's game against Brooklyn.
Mason remains out with an oblique strain. His next chance to return comes Monday against the Bulls.
Mason has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Knicks with a strained oblique.
One of Milwaukee's two two-way players, Mason has spent most of the campaign with the G League's Wisconsin Herd. The 2017 second-round pick most recently logged 33 minutes in the Herd's 131-123 win over the Canton Charge on Saturday, but the likely picked up the oblique injury along the way. Mason can be viewed as day-to-day for now, and once he's eventually moved past the injury, he'll likely be dispatched back to the Herd so he can play regularly.
Mason is with the Bucks for Sunday's game against Indiana, Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel reports.
Eric Bledsoe (leg) is injured and George Hill (thigh) is questionable, so the Bucks brought Mason up from with the Wisconsin Herd as an emergency option. If Hill is ultimately able to play, Mason will likely be inactive, per coach Mike Budenholzer.
On a two-way contract, Mason has started all three of his appearances for the Herd, averaging 30.9 minutes across those games.
In his time spent with the Herd, Mason has recorded 23.3 points, 5.3 assists and 3.0 rebounds. In one appearance with the Bucks, Mason played 10 minutes in relief, scoring four points with two assists.
Mason totaled 14 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six assists, four steals, and three rebounds in 27 minutes during Monday's 122-112 preseason victory over Chicago.
Mason was in the starting lineup Monday as the Bucks' rested a number of players. During his time in Sacramento, Mason had moments of fantasy relevance but was typically more of a deep league option. Moving forward, it would appear as though that is not going to change barring a number of injuries to those ahead of him.
Mason signed a two-way contract with the Bucks on Saturday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Mason averaged 6.8 points, 2.6 assists, and 0.5 triples across 15.8 minutes per game in his first two seasons with the Kings. The Bucks do not have an option for the third point guard on their depth chart yet, so Mason will have the opportunity to earn the role.
Mason (hip) is out for Tuesday's summer league game in Las Vegas.
Mason will miss his second straight summer game due to a sore right hip, though the injury doesn't appear to be overly serious.
Mason (hip) is out for Saturday's summer league game against Team China.
Mason's injury doesn't seem to be serious, but there's little reason to push things during exhibition play.
Mason (hip) was waived by the Kings on Thursday, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports. He will remain on the Kings' summer league team.
Mason, drafted 34th overall by the Kings in 2017, will look for a new team. He's played 90 NBA games across two seasons, with career averages of 6.8 points, 2.6 assists and 1.9 rebounds across 15.8 minutes.
Mason (hip) won't play during Wednesday's summer league game against the Lakers, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
Mason's hip injury has prevented him from playing in the California Classic, but he'll hope to get healthy ahead of Las Vegas.
Mason (hip) will not play in the Kings' summer league opener Monday night, Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee reports.
Both Mason and Marvin Bagley (Achilles) will be held out on a precautionary basis, though they could be back on the floor Tuesday or Wednesday as the California Classic progresses.
Mason is on the Kings' summer league roster, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Mason concluded his sophomore campaign last year. He appeared in 38 games, averaging 5.1 points, 2.2 assists and 1.1 rebounds in 11.4 minutes. He'll look to continue developing his game over the summer.
Mason (DNP-Coach's Decision) did not see the floor during Sunday's 113-106 win over the Spurs.
Mason appeared in only one game across the entire month of March, this after seeing the court just once in February as well. With the Kings already being eliminated from playoff contention, it's possible Mason will wind up earning a little bit of playing time across the last five contests of 2018-19. Even still, Mason can likely be left on waiver wires across all formats.
Mason produced 13 points (4-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT), two rebounds and one assist in 12 minutes Wednesday in the Kings' 127-101 loss to the Rockets.
This was a garbage-time special for Mason, who had played 15 minutes total over the Kings' last eight games. Despite the solid performance in the blowout loss, Mason doesn't look poised to push for more playing time in the near future. In fact, he'll likely drop further in the backcourt pecking order once Alec Burks, who was acquired from the Cavaliers on Wednesday, is ready to make his Kings debut.
Mason did not see the floor during Monday's 115-107 win over the Trail Blazers.
Mason has appeared in just 29 of the team's 44 games thus far this season. Moreover, since recording 12 points (5-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six dimes, four boards, and one steal across 24 minutes versus the Timberwolves back on Dec. 17, Mason has been a healthy scratch during 10 of the last 14 games while earning only 19 minutes combined in the four tilts that he saw some action.
Mason managed eight points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two assists, one rebound, and one steal in 15 minutes during Saturday's 107-97 loss to the Pacers.
Mason is posting modest per-game counting stats, plus he has been inefficient offensively. He hasn't reached double figures in scoring since back in October, when he did so twice in his first three appearances of the season. With that being said, he remains the primary backup point guard behind De'Aaron Fox, so competition for playing time has been fierce. As a result, Mason is best reserved for use in deeper leagues, barring an injury to Fox.
Mason registered 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt), seven assists, five rebounds and one steal across 27 minutes in the Kings' 126-112 loss to the Nuggets on Tuesday.
After a solid first season for a second-round pick last year and an impressive preseason this fall, Mason has been highly productive in the two regular-season games during which he's seen appreciable minutes. The 24-year-old had posted 18 points, six assists, one rebound and one steal across 21 minutes last Friday versus the Pelicans before receiving a DNP on Sunday against the Thunder. Coach Dave Joerger finds himself with a relatively deep backcourt rotation at the moment, but Mason seemingly offers more offensive punch than the likes of veteran Ben McLemore, for example. That should afford him the opportunity to carve him out consistent minutes on the majority of nights.
Mason will come off the bench in Wednesday's season opener against the Jazz, Andy Larsen of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
It was reported a little over a week ago that Mason was in line to open the year as the Kings' starting shooting guard, but it appears plans have changed and coach Dave Joerger will go with Buddy Hield and Justin Jackson on the wing instead. It's a disappointing development for Mason's fantasy value even though he should still see significant minutes in the regular rotation. Fantasy owners will likely want to take a wait-and-see approach with Mason before rolling him out in lineups.
Mason supplied 14 points (4-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight assists and four rebounds across 30 minutes in the Kings' 118-115 preseason loss to the Trail Blazers on Friday.
Mason was back in the starting five after a one-game sabbatical on the second unit Thursday. The second-year guard is reportedly on track to open the season as the starting two-guard while Bogdan Bogdanovic completes his recovery from a knee injury. Mason has earned the job with a strong preseason, one in which he's posted double-digit scoring efforts in five of six games and dished out between five and eight assists in four of them.
Coach Dave Joerger implied Monday night that Mason would begin the season as the starting two-guard, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
While Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) is the favorite to take over when healthy, Joerger intimated after Monday's preseason contest that he'll go with a backcourt pairing of Mason and De'Aaron Fox to begin the season. "Frank does what does, he's hard nosed and he's a guy that a coach always knows he can go to and you're going to get 110 percent from him," Joerger said. Obviously, Mason is a bit undersized for a traditional NBA two-guard, but he's a strong three-point shooter -- a necessary skill next to Fox, who struggled in that area as a rookie. Nothing is ever truly set in stone when it comes to the Kings, but as of now, Joerger appaers poised to roll out Fox, Mason, Justin Jackson, Nemanja Bjelica and Willie Cauley-Stein on opening night.
