Ferrell failed to score (0-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and contributed two rebounds and two assists in 14 minutes off the bench in Thursday's 112-108 loss to the Thunder.
Ferrell appeared for the first time in the Kings' four games since the All-Star break, entering the rotation while De'Aaron Fox (abdomen) was idle. Fox is reportedly optimistic about his chances of playing in the second half of the back-to-back set Friday in Memphis, so Ferrell could quickly find himself back on the outside of coach Luke Walton's rotation. Cory Joseph is viewed as the clear top backup to Fox when the Kings are at full strength in the backcourt.
Ferrell scored nine points (3-5 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 0-0 FT) and added an assist in 15 minutes during Wednesday's 127-123 loss to Dallas.
Ferrell hadn't seen the floor that much since he saw 22 minutes against Pheonix on Dec. 28. It had been even longer since he last scored at least nine points, last reaching that number Dec. 6. The 26-year-old continues to play from the end of the Sacramento bench.
Ferrell (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Tuesday in the Kings' 110-102 loss to the Hornets.
Ferrell was bounced from coach Luke Walton's rotation as a result of De'Aaron Fox's (ankle) return from a 17-game absence. Even while Fox was sidelined, Ferrell hadn't made himself relevant outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues, averaging just 6.5 points, 2.1 assists and 1.6 rebounds in 16.1 minutes over that stretch.
Ferrell put up 17 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3PT, 5-5 FT), three assists and one steal in 23 minutes off the bench during Friday's 105-104 overtime loss at the Spurs.
Ferrell was a consistent scoring threat from the bench, as he ended with his best scoring output of the season and Sacramento's fourth-highest in the game. He is getting more minutes due to De'Aaron Fox's injury and, considering the star point guard doesn't have a clear return date, Ferrell should continue seeing healthy minutes off the bench at least on the short term.
Ferrell posted 13 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three assists, one rebound and one steal in Wednesday's 127-116 loss to the Trail Blazers.
In the 11 games since De'Aaron Fox (ankle) has been out, Ferrell has served as the Kings' backup point guard, averaging 16.7 minutes per game. Nominal starting point guard, Cory Joseph, hasn't been a major threat offensively, averaging just 4.9 points in 31.5 minutes per game compared to Ferrell's 6.6 points per game, but Joseph has been a far more effective facilitator which likely limits any possibility of the fourth-year guard earning an expanded role.
Ferrell generated 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt), three assists and a rebound across 29 minutes in Friday's 99-97 loss to the Lakers.
While Cory Joseph got the first shot at filling in for the injured De'Aaron Fox (ankle), Ferrell is going to see plenty of opportunities to contribute as well. Joseph couldn't get anything going Friday, so Ferrell took over and achieved a +9 plus-minus for his time on the court. It'll be a toss-up in the short term as to who will be the better option on any given night, so both guards are risky propositions from a fantasy perspective.
Ferrell tallied nine points (3-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and three assists in 16 minutes off the bench Tuesday in the Kings' 107-99 win over the Trail Blazers.
With De'Aaron Fox suffering a significant left ankle sprain during practice Monday, Ferrell stepped into the rotation as the backup point guard, while Cory Joseph ascended to the top unit. The move into the rotation allowed Ferrell to set season highs across the board, but neither he nor Joseph are likely to emerge as significant fantasy assets while Fox is out. Instead, it was Bogdan Bogdanovic (25 points, 10 assists in 32 minutes) who seemed to benefit the most from enhanced play-making opportunities in the Kings' first game minus Fox.
Ferrell has logged a total of 25 minutes through five of Sacramento's first eight games.
As expected, offseason acquisition Cory Joseph has assumed the role of backup point guard to De'Aaron Fox, forcing Ferrell to act as a reserve option off the bench. Unless one of the starting or backup guards suffers an injury, the fourth-year veteran will likely continue to wait his turn.
Ferrell posted 24 points (7-11 FG, 5-6 3PT, 5-5 FT), six assists, three rebounds, two steals and one block across 38 minutes during Sacramento's 124-110 exhibition win over Melbourne United on Wednesday.
Ferrell got the keys of Sacramento's offense in this game due to the absences of both De'Aaron Fox (back) and Cory Joseph (calf), and he didn't disappoint. That said, Fox should be ready for the regular season opener, which limits Ferrell's upside to a backup-role only.
Ferrell pitched in 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt) two assists and one rebound across 29 minutes in the Kings' 136-131 loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
Ferrell checked in second to Marvin Bagley in second-unit scoring and finished the campaign with a pair of double-digit point tallies in his last three games. The veteran guard played a modest role in the rotation for the majority of the season and finished the campaign while averaging 5.9 points (on career-high 43.5 percent shooting), 1.9 assists and 1.5 rebounds across 15.0 minutes over 71 games (three starts).
Ferrell totaled 13 points (4-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five assists and a rebound over 36 minutes in the Kings' loss to the Jazz on Friday.
Ferrell registered his second-highest minute total of the season, pouring in his most points since Feb. 4. He saw a lot of action after De'Aaron Fox exited the game after just eight minutes with foot soreness. Even if Fox were to miss the final two games of the season, Ferrell wouldn't be a strong fantasy play.
Ferrell compiled seven points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds, and one assist in 19 minutes during Tuesday's 130-105 loss to Houston.
Ferrell had been considered questionable heading into Tuesday's game after spraining his ankle in the previous game. He was able to battle through and played 19 minutes off the bench in the big loss. This matters very little from a fantasy perspective and Ferrell is best left on the waivers in almost every format.
Ferrell (ankle) will play Tuesday against the Rockets, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Ferrell won't be forced to miss any time after spraining his right ankle, as he's been given the green light to participate in Tuesday's clash. The former Hoosier is averaging 6.8 points, 1.8 assists and 1.4 rebounds off the bench over his previous five matchups.
Ferrell will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against Houston due to a right ankle sprain.
Ferrell put up 10 points in 15 minutes Sunday night against San Antonio, but he's in jeopardy of missing Tuesday's tilt after spraining his ankle. Frank Mason and Cody Demps would likely fill in if Ferrell can't go.
Ferrell finished with 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt) and two steals in 15 minutes during Sunday's 113-106 win over the Spurs.
Ferrell reached double figures in scoring or the first time since Feb. 4, snapping a 22-game streak of single-digit efforts. He also matched his season high in steals, but that was the extent of Ferrell's contributions. Given his limited role, the 25-year-old guard is only a viable option in deeper leagues.
Ferrell totaled 19 points (7-7 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), and two assists in 17 minutes during Monday's 127-112 victory over San Antonio.
Ferrell dominated the last quarter, helping the Kings pull away to record a 15-point victory. Ferrell has the ability to score the ball in bunches but typically produces nowhere near enough to warrant rostering outside of deeper formats.
Ferrell accumulated 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt), four assists, and three rebounds in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 135-113 win over the Hawks.
Ferrell finished January with his best monthly averages in assists (2.6), rebounds (2.3), and minutes (18.5). Still, he's merely a modest statistical contributor operating in a reserve role and should be reserved for use in deeper leagues.
Ferrell will come off the bench Friday against the Grizzlies, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
With De'Aaron Fox (toe) returning to the starting five, Ferrell will resume his usual role off the bench. As a reserve, he's averaging 5.4 points, 1.7 assists and 1.5 rebounds across 13.5 minutes.
Ferrell tallied 10 points (4-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt), seven rebounds, six assists and two steals across 39 minutes in Tuesday's 120-105 loss to the Raptors.
Ferrell's ability to stuff the stat sheet Tuesday night allowed him to set or tie single-game highs for every category besides points. Ferrell stepped in well for De'Aaron Fox (toe), but the extended minutes may not last long given Fox's talent.
Ferrell is starting at point guard Tuesday against the Raptors.
Ferrell will step into the starting lineup for just the third time all season with De'Aaron Fox unavailable due to a toe injury. The 25-year-old is averaging 9.5 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists across 25.5 minutes as a starter this year.
