Graham will miss his fifth straight game with the knee injury. LaMelo Ball will continue to start in the backcourt, but it’s been Malik Monk off the bench who has been the biggest beneficiary. He’s scored 20+ points in each of the last three games and there’s no reason to believe his scoring ways won’t continue against a very poor Kings defense of late.
