Nemanja Bjelica scored 14 points (6-12 FG, 0-4 3PT, 2-2 FT), with 10 boards, two assists, and one block in 30 minutes in Sunday's 118-113 loss to the Raptors.
Bjelica has been up and down the past few games, but was able to put up a double-double tonight against Toronto. His last double-double came just five games ago against Memphis. He's capable of producing in a multitude of statistical categories on a nightly basis, and is quietly putting together a very solid 2019-2020 campaign. On the year, he's averaging a career-high 11.9 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.5 blocks across 28 minutes per game. Bjelica hasn't missed a game all season, which bodes well down the stretch for his fantasy owners.
Nemanja Bjelica compiled 13 points (5-15 FG, 2-8 3PT, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, and one steal over 33 minutes of play Friday night.
Bjelica posted his first double-double since mid-January Friday night. He's too inconsistent to trust on a nightly basis and is best left on waivers in most league formats.
Nemanja Bjelica totaled 18 points (7-9 FG, 4-6 3Pt), nine rebounds and two assists over 34 minutes in the Kings’ 112-108 loss to the Thunder on Thursday.
Bjelica has seen a huge boost to his value with both Richaun Holmes and Marvin Bagley III out of action, and neither player seems ready to return any time soon. The Serbian forward should continue to see plenty of run in Sacramento’s frontcourt to close out the season.
Nemanja Bjelica went for 10 points (3-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and seven rebounds over 22 minutes in the Kings’ 130-111 loss to the Mavericks on Wednesday.
Bjelica continues to reap the benefits of Marvin Bagley's and Richaun Holmes' absences, scoring double-digit points yet again while flirting with a double-double. He's enjoying the best statistical production of his NBA tenure, providing 12.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists -- all career highs.
Nemanja Bjelica posted 15 points (6-10FG, 3-4 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists, two steals, and a block over 32 minutes in Saturday's 122-102 win over the Spurs.
Bjelica had another solid start on Saturday night and should continue to get opportunities as Richaun Holmes and Marvin Bagley III still aren't back from injury. Bjelica is averaging 12.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.8 blocks in February and is worth a shot in DFS tournaments when Holmes and Bagley are both sidelined. Given that his opportunity is limited to injuries to teammates, he's not worth a pickup in most fantasy leagues. Still, he's shooting an insane 59.1% clip from deep this month on 22 attempts and has been a valuable piece of the Kings' recent 6-2 run. Unless Bagley and Holmes can quickly heal up, Bjelica should assume the start again on Monday against the Bucks.
