Haliburton scored 12 points (5-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with six assists, one rebound and one steal across 31 minutes in Monday's loss to the Pelicans.
Haliburton re-entered the starting lineup in the absence of Buddy Hield (illness), though he maintained a typical workload. He also delivered a relatively standard line, though he is averaging 6.0 assists across his last eight contests -- a slight increase over his season-long line.
Haliburton will start in Monday's game against the Pelicans.
Haliburton has come off the bench for the last two games, but with Buddy Hield (illness) out, he's back in the starting lineup. Ultimately, Haliburton has been equally effective whether starting or coming off the bench. Over the last five games, he's averaged 10.4 points, 6.0 assists, 2.4 rebounds and 1.0 triple across 31.8 minutes per game.
Haliburton will come off the bench for Thursday's game against Detroit, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Haliburton will revert back to a bench role Thursday after he had started the last 12 games. Maurice Harkless will join the starting lineup, but Haliburton shouldn't see his role impacted too significantly despite the fact that he'll be coming off the bench.
Haliburton closed with 15 points (7-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt), 10 assists, four rebounds and two steals in 32 minutes during Monday's 132-115 victory over the Spurs.
Haliburton struggled from beyond the perimeter but still managed to produce another excellent fantasy line. With LaMelo Ball (wrist) set to miss an extended period of time, Haliburton may still have a shot to win the Rookie of the Year title. This is good news for those invested in the youngster, especially if the Kings continue to roll him out there the rest of the way.
Haliburton notched 21 points (7-11 FG, 6-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and an assist across 34 minutes in Thursday's 141-119 win over the Warriors.
The rookie has successfully fought his way up the depth chart and now owns a starting role in the backcourt. The acquisitions of Terence Davis and Delon Wright present an interesting wrinkle for the first-round draft pick's future production, however. At first glance, the trade is a bit of a head-scratcher, considering De'Aaron Fox's stranglehold on the starting gig at point guard. While Davis is a likely backup to Fox in place of Cory Joseph, Wright lit up the board in Detroit and is a threat to Haliburton's value. The new additions to the depth chart are worth monitoring for Haliburton managers.
Haliburton collected 17 points (6-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block in a 110-108 victory over the Hawks on Wednesday.
Haliburton followed up a season-high 28 point outing with a strong all-around performance in a close win. The guard has turned things around, scoring at least 11 points in three of his last four games after failing to score in double figures for the first three games after the All-Star break. Over his last four games, Haliburton is averaging 15.0 points, 4.8 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals on 51.1 percent shooting.

Haliburton's production has picked up a bit since entering the starting lineup, as he's scored in double-figures in three of his last four outings, including Monday's career-best effort. He can attribute the standout performance to connecting on a career-high 11 field goals, four of which came from three-point territory. In his last four games (all as a starter), Haliburton is averaging 15.0 points, 4.0 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 0.8 steals while playing 32.5 minutes per contest.
Haliburton will continue to have a minutes restriction Friday against Boston, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.

Haliburton was reportedly still on a minutes limit entering the game, though he topped 30 minutes for the first time in four games since returning from a calf injury. It was also by far his best game in the span, as he had combined to score only 17 points in his first three games back. Haliburton appears to be nearing full strength again and should get plenty of run to close the season as a starter.
Haliburton will start Wednesday's game against the Wizards and be on a minutes limit, Franklin Cartoscelli of Sports 1140 KHTK reports.
Haliburton has played in each of the past three games after returning from a calf injury.

Haliburton (calf) finished with five points (2-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists and one block across 18 minutes Thursday in the Kings' 125-105 win over the Rockets.
Haliburton was back in action to begin the second half of the season after missing the Kings' final four games prior to the All-Star break with a left calf strain. Head coach Luke Walton suggested earlier in the week that Haliburton would likely be limited initially coming off the injury, so fantasy managers shouldn't be too concerned about the low minutes he received. He could be under a restriction for another game or two, but the rookie should eventually reclaim the 30-plus-minute role he typically filled prior to suffering the calf injury.
Haliburton (calf) isn't listed on the injury report for Thursday's game against the Rockets.
The 21-year-old sat out the last four games before the All-Star break with left calf soreness, and according to Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento, he'll open the second half of the season with an unspecified minutes restriction. Haliburton is averaging 13.2 points, 5.4 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 30.1 minutes while shooting 43.3 percent from deep through his first 30 NBA contests.
Haliburton (calf) will not play Wednesday against the Lakers or Thursday against the Trail Blazers, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Left calf soreness will keep Haliburton out for a fourth consecutive game Thursday, and we won't see the rookie again until after the All-Star break. He was on a 12-game tear before suffering the injury, as he averaged 17.1 points on 52.3 percent shooting, 5.3 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.8 steals in 31.9 minutes. As Haliburton sits out Wednesday and Thursday, Kyle Guy and Cory Joseph are candidates to see extra minutes again. However, coach Luke Walton has mostly leaned on his core players for more minutes over the past two games.
Haliburton (calf) will not play Sunday against the Hornets, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
Haliburton is still dealing with left calf soreness and has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Hornets. As a result, Cory Joseph should see increased run in the Kings' backcourt. Haliburton's next chance to return will be next Wednesday against the Lakers.
Haliburton (calf) will not play Friday against the Pistons, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Haliburton was initially considered doubtful ahead of Friday's contest, so it's not very surprising to see him inactive against Detroit. Cory Joseph and Kyle Guy could see increased run in his absence.
Haliburton is doubtful for Friday's game against the Pistons due to left calf soreness, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
Haliburton hasn't missed a game since Jan. 4, but it appears he'll have his third absence of the season Friday. In his stead, Cory Joseph and Kyle Guy are strong candidates to see an uptick in workload.

Haliburton's strong play continued, as he scored at least 16 points for the fourth consecutive game. The guard has also provided solid contributions in rebounds, assists and steals of late including a career-high in steals Thursday.

Haliburton recorded 23 points (10-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt), eight assists, five rebounds, two steals and one block in the Kings' 128-115 loss to the Bucks on Sunday.
Haliburton was one of the few bright spots in the Kings' seventh-straight loss. The rookie has capitalized on more opportunities with Harrison Barnes (foot) missing his third straight game. Haliburton has played at least 30 minutes in five straight and 13 of 15 games, so even when Barnes is active, the guard has gotten consistent playing time. Haliburton is a do-it-all guard, averaging 12.4 points, 5.2 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game this season. He has a bright future in the league.
