Kings' De'Aaron Fox: Puts up 25 points in loss
Fox posted 25 points (9-19 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), nine assists, six rebounds and two steals across 35 minutes in Friday's 130-125 loss to the Kings.
Fox is in line to be one of the league's most improved players as he's put together a prolific campaign as the Kings' floor general. The 20-year old's season average of 18.1 points and 7.6 assists has vaulted him into a higher tier among fellow point guards and is a must-start in all formats.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Buddy Hield: Leads team with 27 points
Heild recorded 27 points (11-21 FG, 5-13 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists across 33 minutes in Friday's 130-125 loss to the Warriors.
The Kings put up a good fight against the Warriors but couldn't quite close out the win. Hield continues to inflict severe damage at the two for the Kings and has emerged as one of their pleasant surprises so far. The long-range sharpshooter has connected on 42.9 percent of his 3-point attempts and currently ranks 10th in the league with 79 treys.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Iman Shumpert: Exits with hip injury
Shumpert won't return to Friday's game against Golden State after suffering a right hip contusion, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.
The injuries keep piling up for the Kings, as Marvin Bagley exited the matchup earlier with a knee injury. Given the nature of Shumpert's ailment, he shouldn't be sidelined for long. He'll likely be listed as a game-time decision for Sunday's contest in Dallas.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Marvin Bagley: Won't return Friday
Bagley suffered a sprained left knee during Friday's game against the Warriors and has been ruled out for the remainder of the contest, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.
Bagley needed assistance getting to the locker room, so initial indications aren't looking good. The Kings are slated to take on Dallas on Sunday, although it seems unlikely that Bagley will be ready to go with such a quick turnaround. Details regarding the injury will be revealed after further evaluation.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Yogi Ferrell: Surprise contributor in big win
Ferrell tallied 17 points (5-6 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six assists, two rebounds and one steal across 16 minutes in the Kings' 141-130 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.
On a night where everything seemingly went right on offense for the Kings, even the seldom-used Ferrell got in on the fun. The third-year point guard contributed four of Sacramento's franchise-record 19 three-pointers, posting a season-best scoring total in the process. Despite the unexpected production, it's worth noting Ferrell had logged a DNP-CD or had seen single-digit minutes in nine of the prior 10 games, so expectations should be tempered for the time being....

Kings' Willie Cauley-Stein: Solid all-around line in win
Cauley-Stein registered 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-9 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal across 30 minutes in the Kings' 141-130 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.
Cauley-Stein provided one of several solid stat lines on the Sacramento side of the ledger, and he posted his fifth double-digit scoring effort in the last six games. The 25-year-old has also brought down eight to 16 rebounds in four of those contests while dishing out multiple assists in every game during the current month, making it an excellent all-around start to December for the seven-footer....

Kings' Marvin Bagley: Double-doubles off bench
Bagley pitched in 17 points (4-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 9-10 FT), 10 rebounds and three assists across 26 minutes in the Kings' 141-130 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.
Bagley paced the Kings bench in rebounds while turning in his second straight impressive offensive effort. The rookie has shot 70.4 percent in his four games since returning from a two-game absence due to a back injury, but he'd been underperforming on the rebounding front until Wednesday. The double-double was Bagley's first since Nov. 29, and certainly a welcome sight for fantasy owners that had gotten accustomed to his strong work on the boards thus far this season.... See More ...

Kings' Bogdan Bogdanovic: Paces bench in scoring
Bogdanovic poured in 20 points (9-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt) and added six assists and five rebounds across 31 minutes in the Kings' 141-130 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.
Bogdanovic remained highly productive in his robust second-unit role, one that saw him match starter Iman Shumpert in minutes Wednesday. The second-year sharpshooter is proving an infusion of offense off the bench in virtually every game, with his performance against the T-Wolves marking his 14th straight double-digit scoring effort and third contest over the last six with better than 50 percent shooting....

Kings' Buddy Hield: Leads long-distance barrage in win
Hield collected 20 points (7-13 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three assists, two rebounds and one block across 26 minutes in the Kings' 141-130 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.
Hield paced the Kings in three-pointers on a night when they sunk a franchise-record 19 long-distance attempts. The third-year pro's latest success is simply an extension of the breakout campaign he's enjoying, one that sees him currently boasting career highs in points (18.6), rebounds (5.2), assists (2.6) and three-point shooting percentage (43.3). Factoring in Wednesday's production, Hield has now hit or exceeded the 20-point mark in four of the last five contests as well.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Nemanja Bjelica: Heats up in win
Bjelica turned in 25 points (9-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 29 minutes in the Kings' 141-130 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.
Bjelica's four made threes tied Yogi Ferrell for second on the Kings behind Buddy Hield for the night, as Sacramento finished with a franchise-record 19 three-pointers overall. The 30-year-old's totals in both shot attempts and points fell just under his season highs, with his scoring checking in behind only the 26 points he tallied against the Wizards back on Oct. 26. Bjelica's offensive production continues to fluctuate, but his ability to get hot from distance affords him the ability to pile up the points in fairly efficient fashion.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Willie Cauley-Stein: Double-double in Monday's win
Cauley-Stein supplied 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-1 FT), 16 rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 27 minutes during Monday's 108-89 win over the Bulls.
Cauley-Stein matched his career high in rebounding while recording his ninth double-double of the season. He has swiped at least three steals four times this season and remains a quality option across all formats.... See More ... See Less
Kings' De'Aaron Fox: Scores 25 points in Monday's win
Fox finished with 25 points (8-16 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six assists, four rebounds, four steals, and one block in 34 minutes during Monday's 108-89 win over the Bulls.
Fox matched his career high in steals while matching his season high in made threes, which he set versus the Cavaliers on Dec. 7. The sophomore point guard continues to impress on an almost nightly basis, filling up box scores while leading the offensive attack for the high-octane Kings.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Iman Shumpert: Swipes four steals in Monday's win
Shumpert contributed 14 points (5-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt), five assists, and four steals in 34 minutes during Monday's 108-89 win over the Bulls.
Shumpert rejoined the starting lineup after sitting out Saturday's matchup with the Pacers for rest purposes, matching season highs in steals and threes. He has drained four threes five times this season. Moreover, Shumpert remains the team's top option for defending opposing wings, and the veteran has been more than steady enough to trust in deeper leagues.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Bogdan Bogdanovic: Scores 16 points in Monday's win
Bogdanovic tallied 16 points (6-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 30 minutes during Monday's 108-89 win over the Bulls.
Bogdanovic returned to a reserve role with Iman Shumpert (rest) rejoining the lineup. Nevertheless, both were among the four Kings to earn at least 30 minutes. Despite coming off the bench more often than not, Bogdanovic is clearly part of the team's core, and he will likely continue to earn plenty of minutes as the season progresses.... See More ...
