Nemanja Bjelica gets start and leads Kings with 22 points in loss to Heat

Nemanja Bjelica scored 22 points on an efficient 8-of-13, going 2-of-6 from deep and sinking all four free throw attempts. He grabbed six rebounds and a steal while adding three assists.

Fantasy Impact

With Richaun Holmes still sidelined, Bjelica got the start again and gave another solid statline. His season has been a bit unexpected as he's been a product of injuries to Holmes and Marvin Bagley III and that has provided him with extra opportunities. He's averaging 18 points and eight rebounds over the last six games that he's started in place for Holmes. He's worth a pickup as long as Holmes is out and should be targeted in DFS tournaments.

Nemanja Bjelica is listed as probable for Monday's matchup

Nemanja Bjelica is still on the injury report with a sprained ankle but he has played through it recently and should do so again today.

Fantasy Impact

Bjelica has been seeing an increase in minutes lately, with at least 33 minutes in five straight outings. Richaun Holmes is still out and Marvin Bagley III is listed as day-to-day. Bjelica is worth a spot start today and his value goes up substantially if Bagley III can't play.

Nemanja Bjelica adds ten points in Kings’ loss

Nemanja Bjelica scored ten points (3-4 FG, 2-2 3PT, 2-2 FT) with three rebounds, one assist, and one steal across 33 minutes Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact

Bjelica has played well of late averaging 15.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and three 3PM per game over his last six contests. Bjelica has returned top 40 value in 9-cat leagues over that short span of games, and is someone you can use while Richaun Holmes (shoulder) remains out.

Nemanja Bjelica gets start again and turns in 11 points in Wednesday's loss

Nemanja Bjelica posted 11 points on 5-of-12, going 1-of-4 from deep in a loss to the Mavericks. He had 12 rebounds, five assists, and two steals over his 36 minutes.

Fantasy Impact

Bjelica has been making the most of his opportunities lately, averaging 19 points and 9.8 rebounds over his last four starts as he's filled in nicely for the injured Bogdan Bogdanovic and Richaun Holmes. Even after last night's 1-of-4 effort, he's still shooting a red-hot 48.7% from deep this January and 43.4% on the year. The good news is that Bjelica is still starting even with Marvin Bagley III's return. As long as Bogdanovic and Holmes are sidelined, Bjelica is worth a spot start in all league formats and is a valuable option in DFS.

Nemanja Bjelica drops 19 in Tuesday's win over Suns

Nemanja Bjelica was second in scoring behind De'Aaron Fox, recording 19 points on 7-of-17, going 3-of-8 from deep and 2-of-4 at the charity stripe. He pulled down seven boards, and assist, and three steals over 38 minutes.

Fantasy Impact

After back-to-back games with 10 rebounds, Bjelica came up short but had his best scoring performance of the new year. He's averaging 11.7 points and 6.2 rebounds per game this year. Even though he's consistently getting the start while Marvin Bagley III is out, there are a lot of mouths to feed in Sacramento and Bjelica's can't be relied on much.
