Kings' Iman Shumpert: Not on injury report
Shumpert (rest) is not listed on the injury report for Monday's game against the Bulls, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
Shumpert will be fully rested for Monday's contest after being withheld from the lineup over the weekend for rest purposes. Over his last five games, Shumpert is averaging 7.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 24.6 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Troy Williams: Plays 13 minutes in Saturday's loss
Williams chipped in two points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 13 minutes during Saturday's 107-97 loss to the Pacers.
Williams has logged double-digit minutes in four of the last five games while reaching double figures in scoring twice already here in December. Williams had scored 10 points or more only twice through his first 11 appearances, and he's still not much more than a low-cost option in daily leagues.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Justin Jackson: Scores 11 points in Saturday's loss
Jackson registered 11 points (4-6 FG, 3-5 3Pt), one rebound, one assist, and one block in 25 minutes during Saturday's 107-97 loss to the Pacers.
Jackson has reached double figures in scoring in two of the last three games, and in seven of 24 appearances thus far this season. Moreover, Jackson has earned at least 20 minutes in each of the first four games in December while draining eight-of-13 three-point attempts. Monday's matchup with the lowly Bulls could provide Jackson with another opportunity to fill it up offensively.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Frank Mason: Scores eight points in 15 minutes
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.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Yogi Ferrell: Plays one minute in Saturday's loss
Ferrell scored three points (1-1 FG, 1-1 3Pt) in one minute during Saturday's 107-97 loss to the Pacers.
Ferrell has appeared in only 16 games thus far and is being limited to career-low averages across most categories. As a result, he can likely be left on waiver wires, even in the deepest formats.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Bogdan Bogdanovic: Hands out six assists in 33 minutes
Bogdanovic contributed 11 points (4-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), six assists, three rebounds, three steals, and one block in 33 minutes during Saturday's 107-97 loss to the Pacers.
Bogdanovic drew the start with Iman Shumpert (rest) sidelined and finished with a team high minute total and a season high in steals. This is also the third time in the last five games that Bogdanovic has dished out six dimes, and he has reached double figures in scoring in 12 consecutive contests. The sophomore is building on his strong rookie campaign, and appears to be a key cog in Sacramento's high-octane offensive attack.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Bogdan Bogdanovic: Starting Saturday
Bogdanovic will start Saturday against the Pacers, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
Iman Shumpert (rest), the usual starter, won't be available. So Bogdanovic will enter the lineup. In four games this season seeing 30-plus minutes, he's averaged 21.0 points, 4.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Iman Shumpert: Ruled out Saturday
Shumpert will be rested for Saturday's game against Indiana.
As has been the case periodically this season, the Kings will rest Shumpert on Saturday after he played at least 22 minutes in each of the last four games. Shumpert saw 23 minutes of action Friday in Cleveland, finishing with six points, four rebounds and an assist.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Marvin Bagley: Scores 17 off bench
Bagley had 17 points (8-9 FG, 1-1 3PT) in Friday's win over the Cavaliers.
Bagley played 25 minutes in his return from a sore back, and while the scoring was encouraging, he only pulled down one rebound, to go with one assist, one steal and one block.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Buddy Hield: Records 25 points in 33 minutes
Hield posted 25 points (9-17 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 33 minutes Friday as the Kings topped the Cavaliers.
Hield has been shouldering the scoring responsibilities alongside De'Aaron Fox for a young Kings squad that's proving to be one of the best offensive units in the Western Conference. He tied a season-high on Friday by knocking down five shots from beyond-the-arc and appears to be ready for an even larger role in the offense. It will be interesting to watch Hield continue developing as a fantasy option alongside Fox.... See More ... See Less
Kings' De'Aaron Fox: Records double-double 29 minutes
Fox accounted for 30 points (12-16 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds, 12 assists, and three steals in 29 minutes Friday in Sacramento's win over Cleveland.
Fox's scoring outburst was a result of him knocking down four triple's, a season-high. The Kentucky product is putting a fantastic sophomore campaign together. He has improved on his rookie season almost across the board. The considerable improvements that are particularly interesting include his improved three-point shooting and free-throw attempts per game. Entering tonight's matchup, Fox was shooting 41.1-percent from deep on three attempts per game, compared to a 30.7-percent mark on 2.1 attempts per game during the 2017-18 season. Fox is fouled on 17.9-percent of his shot attempts, which is one of the highest marks amongst point guards, per Cleaning the Glass. He has game-breaker type speed and it's the foundation of is game. If you have fantasy stock in Fox, you have no reason to expect him to slow down anytime soon.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Marvin Bagley: Listed as probable Friday
Bagley (back) is probable for Friday's contest at Cleveland, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
Bagley has missed the last two games due to lingering back tightness, but is listed as probable ahead of the Kings' game against the Cavaliers on Friday. Fellow teammates Nemanja Bjelica and Skal Labissiere will likely see more playing time if the rookie is ultimately ruled out.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Ben McLemore: Plays 10 minutes Tuesday
McLemore had three points and one rebound in 10 minutes during Tuesday's 122-105 victory over Phoenix.
McLemore played 10 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's thumping of the Suns, finishing with just three points and one rebound. It is the most court time he has seen this season and given the way the Kings are playing right now, there is no reason to believe that will change any time soon.... See More ... See Less
Kings' Bogdan Bogdanovic: Solid effort in easy victory
Bogdanovic totaled 14 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 122-105 victory over the Suns.
The Kings had control of the game early in this one, allowing many of the primary players to get some rest down the stretch. Bogdanovic had 14 points in 20 minutes, putting up some across the board numbers to round out a solid line. He has emerged as one of the Kings main scorers as well as the supplementary facilitator on an offense that is working right now. He needs to be on a roster in all formats.... See More ... See Less
