Kent Bazemore bagged 26 points (10-19 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and three steals as the Warriors outlasted Miami on Wednesday night.
Bazemore's 26 points led his team as his contributions were instrumental in Golden State getting the win. His 26 were his most points in a game this season, a number that surely correlates to his inflated minutes total (38) due to a late scratch for Draymond Green. Bazemore's night was terrific but it's unlikely to be repeated given that his minutes will surely recede when Green returns. If you were lucky enough to incorporate him into your DFS lineup on Wednesday, you were rewarded with 48.1 fantasy points (FanDuel), his most on the season.
Kent Bazemore totaled 20 points (7-11 FG, 2-3 3PT, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 23 minutes in the Warriors' 134-132 loss to the Mavericks on Saturday.
Bazemore is having a great start to February by scoring a season’s best 20.0 points against the Mavericks. Bazemore’s 20.0 point game marks only his second double-digit scoring performance this season. So far, he is averaging 19.0 minutes, 11.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.3 blocks, and 1.3 steals per game and shooting 60.0 percent from the floor and 45.5 percent from beyond the arc this month. Although he doesn’t get a tremendous amount of time in the rotation, his role is consistent, and he is averaging at least 15.0 minutes a game. He has the talent to put together some worthwhile performances in limited amounts of time and could be a useful add-in season-long deep-league play. With the Warriors less than 100.0 percent, he could see more time and usage, making him a possible flier option in DFS formats.
Shooting guard Kent Bazemore has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Golden State Warriors, per Shams Charania.
Bazemore spent the 2019-20 season playing for both Portland and Sacramento while averaging 8.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.4 assists. He'll likely continue to be the back-up shooting guard to Andrew Wiggins in the 2020-21 season, leaving him with some decent fantasy value on such a dynamically explosive offense.
Kings guard Kent Bazemore has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Pelicans with a calf injury.
Bazemore will join De'Aaron Fox (shoulder) and Richaun Holmes (hip) on the sidelines in Tuesday's meaningless game against the Pelicans. It's possible Buddy Hield gets the starting nod in Bazemore's absence with DaQuan Jeffries seeing more playing time off the bench.
Kent Bazemore contributed 16 points (6-16 FG, 2-7 3PT, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two steals, and one block over 23 minutes of play in Tuesday's overtime loss to Dallas.
It was Bazemore's best performance thus far in the bubble. Still, he offers little upside coming off the bench for the Kings and isn't worth trying to forecast in fantasy lineups.
