by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu had missed the last three games due to lower back soreness, and he could have a minutes restriction Friday. However, Damian Jones could see a reduced workload.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kings' Chimezie Metu: Handed questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu (back) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Thunder, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Metu was held out of Sunday's contest with a back injury. The team should provide an update on the center's status closer to tipoff.

Kings' Chimezie Metu: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Mavericks, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

Metu left Friday's game due to lower back soreness and was doubtful ahead of Sunday's matchup. Harrison Barnes (adductor) is also unavailable, so Marvin Bagley could start for the Kings.

Kings' Chimezie Metu: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu (back) is doubtful Sunday against the Mavericks.

Metu exited Friday's game due to lower back soreness, and he's unlikely to play Sunday. In his presumed absence, with Harrison Barnes (adductor) also doubtful, Marvin Bagley has a chance of starting.

Kings' Chimezie Metu: Won't return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu has been ruled out for the remainder of Friday's game against the Lakers due to low back soreness, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Metu took a hard fall in the second quarter Friday and walked slowly to the locker room. Marvin Bagley started the second half in his place, and Metu was ruled out for the game shortly after halftime. Prior to his departure, Metu totaled 10 points (3-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and three rebounds in 14 minutes. It's not yet clear whether he'll be able to return for Sunday's matchup against Dallas.

Kings' Chimezie Metu: Plays team-high 34 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu had six points (3-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 154-105 loss to the Jazz.

Metu received his first start of the season after Harrison Barnes (groin) was ruled out. This was certainly a baptism of fire for Metu, who had to contend with the likes of Rudy Gobert on the offensive end of the floor. It is unclear how long Barnes will remain sidelined or whether Metu will maintain his spot in the opening unit until such time Barnes can return. No matter the case, Metu is unlikely to be anything more than a streaming option if you can catch him on the right night.

Kings' Chimezie Metu: Starting vs. Jazz
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu will start in Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.

After signing a multi-year deal with the Kings earlier in the day, Metu will join the starting lineup for the first time this season in place of Harrison Barnes, who is out with a groin injury. The 24-year-old is averaging 5.1 points and 2.5 rebounds in just over 10 minutes per game this season, and he's had a consistent role in the Kings' rotation as of late.

April 28, 2021 12:36 PM
Kings' Chimezie Metu: Inks multi-year deal with Kings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu signed a multi-year contract with the Kings on Wednesday, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Metu has been a regular part of the Kings' rotation since late March. Over his past 17 appearances, he's averaged 6.3 points and 2.8 rebounds in 12.5 minutes. Recently, he's been sharing reserve center minutes with Damian Jones, as Hassan Whiteside has been ousted from the rotation.

April 21, 2021 03:32 PM
Kings' Chimezie Metu: Scores career-high 16 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu recorded 16 points (8-12 FG), four rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes during Tuesday's 134-120 loss to the Timberwolves.

Metu has carved out a consistent role with the Kings since late March. Tuesday's performance was the culmination of those efforts, as the 16 points were a career high. Over his past 14 appearances, he's averaged 5.8 points and 3.0 rebounds in 12.1 minutes.

Kings' Chimezie Metu: Gets playing-time boost
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu logged 17 minutes off the bench Sunday in the Kings' 121-107 win over the Mavericks, finishing with six points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds and one steal.

The 17 minutes were one of a season-high total for Metu, who benefited from extra run with Richaun Holmes (hamstring) and Marvin Bagley (hand) sidelined. Hassan Whiteside will likely to start and play most of the minutes at center if Holmes misses additional time, but Metu should still continue to hold down a small role in the rotation for the next week or so with Bagley lacking a definitive timeline for a return.

Kings' Chimezie Metu: Makes return from wrist injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu (wrist) played nine minutes off the bench in Wednesday's 110-108 win over the Hawks, producing seven points (3-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and one turnover.

Suiting up for the first time since mid-February after recovering from a fractured wrist, Metu filled light backup minutes at power forward behind Harrison Barnes. The 24-year-old gave the Kings a nice scoring punch during his time on the floor, but he'll likely have a tough time seeing his minutes expand beyond this level if Barnes isn't moved elsewhere ahead of Thursday's trade deadline.

March 24, 2021 09:00 PM
Kings' Chimezie Metu: Available to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu (wrist) is available for Wednesday's game against Atlanta, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

The 24-year-old has been sidelined since Valentine's Day with a fractured wrist, but he'll be active for Wednesday's contest. Metu is likely to have a minor role for the Kings now that he's healthy.

March 23, 2021 09:40 PM
Kings' Chimezie Metu: Questionable for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu (wrist) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

The 24-year-old has been sidelined for more than a month with a fractured right wrist, but he could be available for Wednesday's contest. Metu is unlikely to play a significant role for the Kings once cleared to take the court.

March 15, 2021 05:20 PM
Kings' Chimezie Metu: Not ready to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu (wrist) is listed as out for Monday's game against Charlotte, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.

Metu has been sidelined since Feb. 14 with a fractured right wrist, and the Kings have yet to indicate when he might be ready to return to the court. Even when he's been healthy this season, Metu hasn't regularly been featured in head coach Luke Walton's rotation when all of Richaun Holmes, Marvin Bagley and Hassan Whiteside (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) are available.

Kings' Chimezie Metu: Out several weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu will be sidelined for several weeks after fracturing his right wrist in Sunday's loss to the Grizzlies, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

Metu broke his hand following a dunk on Jonas Valanciunas. Metu was hanging on the rim with his legs on Valanciunas' shoulders, and Valanciunas responded by twisting Metu's leg, which forced Metu to lose control of the rim and fall onto the court. Based on the wording of the report, Metu seems unlikely to return before the All-Star break in early March.

Kings' Chimezie Metu: Collects five rebounds, two blocks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Metu registered two points (1-1 FG), five rebounds, one steal and two blocked shots in Friday's victory over the Knicks.

Metu logged only 11 minutes in the contest, but he made an impact on the boards and on the defensive end to help guide Sacramento to a win. The third-year center has begun to garner more playing time of late, though his season per-game averages of 4.7 points and 3.3 boards across 8.7 minutes reflect his limited role in the Kings' rotation.
