G - SAC
Kings G Buddy Hield continued to struggle from the field, finishing with 13 points (5-12 FG, 1-7 3PT, 2-3 FT) in this one. He would salvage his fantasy day with seven rebounds, nine assists, and one steal though.
It was a gross month of May for Hield to put it lightly. With G De'Aaron Fox out with COVID-19, defenses keyed in on Hield who simply could not get open and ended up forcing contested threes. Hield will need to work on his driving ability during the offseason to become the consistent 20+ point scorer we know he can be.
Buddy Hield struggled to get much of anything going Friday, managing just 11 points (4-9 FG, 3-8 3PT), two rebounds, and five assists.
Hield just hasn't been consistent at all offensively, and unfortunately his rebounding and assist numbers aren't keeping his fantasy scores afloat. He is a pure boom-or-bust play Sunday vs. Utah.
Buddy Hield managed a mere 16 points (6-17 FG, 4-10 3PT) on Thursday. He would tack on four rebounds, six assists, and one steal which did somewhat salvage his fantasy day.
Hield just hasn't gotten any open looks as of late as teams continue to force him into uncomfortable situations. His inability to dribble and create his own shot is proving to really hold Hield back from being a consistent 20+ point scorer. He'll look to redeem himself on Friday against Memphis.
Buddy Hield got some clean looks Tuesday night, and it resulted in 21 points (8-15 FG, 5-11 3PT). He also notched three rebounds, six assists, and one steal.
Hield had really been struggling to get open looks as of late, but with the recent emerge of G Terence Davis II, the floor has started to open more. Hield will hope to continue rolling Thursday night against Memphis.
Buddy Hield had himself another quiet night scoring the ball with just 14 points (5-11 FG, 4-10 3PT), but he did salvage his fantasy day with five rebounds, seven assists, one steal, and two blocks.
Hield has been in a bit of a scoring lull as of late. He simply hasn't gotten enough open looks, and injuring his ankle in Sacramento's last game doesn't help his chances. Hield's value looks to be shifting towards more of a boom-bust player, although his performance on the rest of the statsheet is nice to see.
