Nemanja Bjelica logged 15 points (5-8 FG, 1-4 3PT, 4-5 FT), 13 assists, eight rebounds, two steals, and a block in Thursday's 136-122 win over the Lakers.
With De'Aaron Fox out of Thursday's matchup Cory Joseph was expected to play facilitator, but Bjelica assumed the role and set a career-high in assists. He'll finish the 2019-2020 season with 11.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game.
Nemanja Bjelica led the Kings with 13 rebounds Tuesday. He also notched 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 3PT), one assist, one steal, and one block over 35 minutes of play.
Bjelica led the bench in minutes played and made the most of his opportunity. Even so, it will be tough to justify starting Bjelica anywhere other than the deepest of fantasy lineups for the remainder of the season.
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.
