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 a solid 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, which should serve to carve him out consistent minutes on the majority of nights.
