Malik Monk erupts for 45 points in double-overtime win on Friday

Malik Monk tallied 45 points (15-24 FG, 6-12 3PT, 9-10 FT), six assists and two rebounds in 41 minutes of Friday's 176-175 double-overtime win over the Clippers.

Fantasy Impact

In the second-highest-scoring game in NBA history, Monk came out as the contest's leading scorer. The 25-year-old came off the bench and dominated, playing all of the crunch time and overtime minutes. Games like this obviously don't come around often, but Monk may be able to earn himself more playing time and possibly a shot at the starting five if he can consistently produce.

Malik Monk (shoulder) questionable for Tuesday

Malik Monk (shoulder) is questionable to play in Tuesday night's game against the Utah Jazz.

Fantasy Impact

A shoulder injury will leave Monk with a questionable tag going into the day Tuesday. He seems to have a true 50/50 shot of playing, and the team will make a decision on his availability closer to game time. Fantasy managers can look for Davion Mitchell to get more work if the veteran is out against the Jazz.

Malik Monk (wrist) questionable Sunday

Malik Monk (wrist) is questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Fantasy Impact

Monk's status for Sunday will be in jeopardy due to lingering wrist soreness. He's listed as questionable to play, and the team will make a decision about his availability closer to game time. If he's out, Davion Mitchell should be primed for more work in his absence against the Grizzlies.

Malik Monk leads team with 33 points off the bench Wednesday

Malik Monk tallied 33 points (12-21 FG, 4-8 3PT, 5-6 FT), three assists, two rebounds and one steal in 30 minutes of Sacramento's 127-126 win over the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Monk exploded for his season-high in points on Wednesday, tying De'Aaron Fox for the team lead in field-goal attempts while playing a solid 30 minutes. The 24-year-old has been a solid sixth man for the Kings all season long, scoring 14.6 points on 23.4 minutes per game. Games like this likely won't come often, but he could slide into the starting five if Fox or Kevin Huerter were to go down with an injury.

Malik Monk pours in 24 points in Wednesday's win

Malik Monk dropped 24 points (6-13 FG, 5-10 3PT, 7-8 FT), three rebounds and three assists in 33 minutes of Wednesday's 124-123 win over the Raptors.

Fantasy Impact

Despite coming off the bench, Monk played starter-like minutes on Wednesday, reaching the 30-minute mark for just the third time this season. The guard will likely continue to be a spark plug off the bench but could see an uptick in minutes if he continues to prove himself like this. Keep a close eye on this, as he could be a viable fantasy option with solid scoring upside if his playing time increases.
