Fantasy Impact: Queta has spent the first couple years of his career on the Kings after they drafted him in 2021, but now he will be playing for Boston on a two-way deal. It remains to be seen if he will carve out a real role for himself on this team, and he won't have much value for fantasy purposes until we know if he's going to get work for the Celtics.

Domantas Sabonis has agreed to a contract negotiation and extension with the Kings for a total of $217M over five years. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Sabonis, 27, averaged 19.1 points, 12.3 rebounds, and 7.3 assists per game across 79 games with Sacramento this past season. The three-time All-Star was an intricate part of the team's success, helping them return to the playoffs for the first time since 2005-06. After producing a career-best 44.4 fantasy points per game, Sabonis is easily a top-25 option heading into the 2023-24 season.

Trey Lyles has reached an agreement to return to the Sacramento Kings. (Source: Chris Haynes on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lyles played a big role in the Kings rotation last season and he should remain in a similar role. He averaged over seven points on 46 percent shooting from the field across 74 games.

Fantasy Impact: After spending three seasons in Sacramento, Metu joins the Suns rotation. He should provide them valuable minutes off the bench behind Deandre Ayton.

Harrison Barnes signed a 3-year, $54 million contract extension with the Sacramento Kings on Thursday. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Barnes was a big part of the Kings’ 2022-23 season that ended their long-lasting playoff drought, and the franchise clearly views him as such. The 31-year-old averaged 15 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.6 assists a game for the Kings last season and was the only member of the team to play all 82 regular season games.

De'Aaron Fox says he will "likely play" in Game 5 against the Warriors on Wednesday despite fracturing the index finger in his shooting hand according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Fantasy Impact: Fox was believed to be "doubtful" for Game 5 but this is a positive sign for the 25-year-old point guard. He reportedly participated in a non-contact practice on Tuesday wearing a splint on his fractured left index finger. The former-Kentucky product is averaging 31.5 points, 7.0 assists, and 6.0 rebounds in 38.5 minutes through the first four games of this first-round series. Fox will likely have to pass pregame tests before getting the official go-ahead for Game 5 so check back prior to tipoff before firing him of in DFS lineups.

Keegan Murray (foot) is questionable for Friday's contest against the Golden State Warriors. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Murray has been added to the injury report for a foot injury that he's dealing with. It should be a minor issue, but the team may choose to let him sit for a game or two out of caution before the playoffs start. If that's the case, Richaun Holmes and Harrison Barnes will both get more work in the rookie's absence.

Davion Mitchell (knee) is uncertain for Sacramento's game against the Golden State Warriors on Friday. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Left-knee soreness may force Mitchell to miss Sacramento's game on Friday. He officially carries a questionable tag, and that will change sometime prior to tip-off. Malik Monk (leg) will get more work off the bench if Mitchell is unable to play against the Warriors.

Kevin Huerter (knee) is questionable for Friday's contest against the Golden State Warriors. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Huerter will be questionable for Friday's game because of a knee injury. This is an issue that has caused a lot of problems for him this season, and the team seems to be exercising caution by giving him an injury designation for Friday. If he's out, Malik Monk (leg) and Davion Mitchell (knee) will both be set to get more work in his absence.

Malik Monk (leg) is listed as questionable to play in Friday's game against the Golden State Warriors. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Lower-leg soreness will leave Monk with a questionable tag for Friday's game. It isn't a serious issue, and the team considers him day-to-day for now. Davion Mitchell (knee) will get more work if the veteran is unable to pay against Golden State.

Richaun Holmes (illness) is questionable to play in Saturday's game against the Washington Wizards. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Holmes has been inactive for a good chunk of time because of a non-covid illness that he's dealing with. It's lasting longer than the team expected, but he will have a chance to make his return for the team's game on Saturday. He doesn't get a lot of work even when healthy, so his presence wouldn't offer much for fantasy purposes.

Terence Davis II (back) is questionable to play in Sunday's game against the New York Knicks. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: The team's initial report had Davis listed as out, but he's since been upgraded to questionable. He may not play Sunday, but that's at least an encouraging sign that he will be back in the near future. If he's unavailable again, Malik Monk and Davion Mitchell will be in line for more work in the veteran's absence.
