Fantasy Impact: Fox was able to make the most of the 26 minutes he played. He'll look for another big performance when the Kings host the Warriors in the Play-in Tournament on Tuesday.


Harrison Barnes scored 17 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 3PT, 5-7 FT) to go along with five rebounds, three assists and two steals in the Kings 121-82 win over Portland.

Domantas Sabonis scored 18 points (7-10 FG, 0-2 3PT, 4-4 FT) to go along with 11 rebounds and nine assists in the Kings 121-82 win over Portland.

Fantasy Impact: Reath moved back to his reserve role where he made the most of his 24 minutes. He figures to remain in a similar role next season.

Fantasy Impact: After a solid performance off the bench on Friday, Banton moved into the starting lineup to close the season. He got the opportunity, but struggled with his shot all afternoon, especially from deep where he missed all 15 of his shot attempts. He'll remain off the fantasy radar next season.


Kris Murray scored nine points (3-15 FG, 1-7 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with 18 rebounds, one steal and one block in the Blazers 121-82 loss against the Kings.

Trey Murphy III scored 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-6 3PT) to go along with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in the Pelicans 124-108 loss against the Lakers.

Brandon Ingram scored 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3PT) to go along with five rebounds in the Pelicans 124-108 loss against the Lakers.

Fantasy Impact: Reaves was solid all afternoon, while D'Angelo Russell also added 19 points.

Fantasy Impact: Jemison stepped into the starting role at center and was able to provide Memphis with a bit of everything on both sides of the floor. He is unlikely to hold much fantasy value next season.


GG Jackson II scored 44 points (17-36 FG, 4-13 3PT, 6-7 FT) to go along with 12 rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block in the Grizzlies 126-111 loss against the Nuggets.

Christian Braun scored 19 points (6-14 FG, 2-6 3PT, 5-6 FT) to go along with 10 rebounds, five assists and two steals in the Nuggets 126-111 win over the Grizzlies.

Tyrese Haliburton scored 12 points (5-10 FG, 0-4 3PT, 2-3 FT) to go along with two rebounds, 13 assists, three steals and one block in the Pacers 157-115 win over the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact: Haliburton did a bit of everything in just 25 minutes of action in the blowout win over Indiana. They'll take on the Bucks in the first-round of the playoffs who Haliburton has posted some big games against this season.
