Sacramento Kings

Western Pacific


Terence Davis II ended the season with a very formidable 20 points (8-14 FG, 2-5 3PT, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist, and two steals.

Fantasy Impact: Maybe he was just playing for a bigger pay day in the offseason, but Davis showed out in the month of May. Known as a streaky scorer, Davis scored 15+ points in seven of his last ten games of the season. Davis will surely be an intriguing fantasy asset with upside no matter where he plays next year.

Kings G Buddy Hield continued to struggle from the field, finishing with 13 points (5-12 FG, 1-7 3PT, 2-3 FT) in this one. He would salvage his fantasy day with seven rebounds, nine assists, and one steal though.

Fantasy Impact: It was a gross month of May for Hield to put it lightly. With G De'Aaron Fox out with COVID-19, defenses keyed in on Hield who simply could not get open and ended up forcing contested threes. Hield will need to work on his driving ability during the offseason to become the consistent 20+ point scorer we know he can be.

Louis King played 34 minutes Friday night, finishing with 27 points (10-16 FG, 2-5 3PT, 5-5 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, three steals, and two blocks, all of which are career highs.

Fantasy Impact: If you were crazy enough to actually start King on Friday, well you were more than rewarded. His 34 minutes is more than his combined minute totals from the rest of the season. It seems as if the Kings are just testing out different players before the season ends with G Justin James and now King, but King played too well to not warrant minutes in the season finale on Sunday. He's a risky start with upside if he gets hot again.

In F/C Richaun Holmes' absence, Damian Jones played a career-high 35 minutes, netting himself 17 points (6-7 FG, 5-6 FT), 11 rebounds, and three assists.

Fantasy Impact: It was a wonderful performance for Jones, who will likely draw another start against Utah on Sunday night if the aforementioned Holmes is unable to return. Jones is a solid value play with Holmes out, but not startable if Holmes returns.

Delon Wright certainly disappointed many fantasy owners with a two point (1-8 FG, 0-3 3PT) outing that was accompanied by just five rebounds, two assists, and one steal.

Fantasy Impact: To be fair, no one on Sacramento really found a rhythm aside from a few bench players. Wright will look to end the season on a high note against the Jazz Sunday night.

Richaun Holmes has been ruled out ahead of the Kings game on Friday against Memphis. (Source: Jason Anderson on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Holmes will play it safe with Sacramento having nothing to play for. He will be one of the biggest names available at center in free agency this offseason.

De'Aaron Fox has been ruled out ahead of the Kings game Friday against Memphis. (Source: Jason Anderson on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Fox is still in the health and safety protocols. His season is likely over at this point with just a couple of games remaining.

Justin James got going early and often, finishing with 31 points (12-17 FG, 4-5 3PT, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal.

Fantasy Impact: The game comes out of nowhere for James. He had seen just 14 and 18 minutes in his last two games respectively, but with C Richaun Holmes injured and the team in need for a scoring punch, James got the call. It's hard to imagine the Kings not sticking with James in their game on Friday as a scorer off the bench at the very least.

Chimezie Metu will attempt to play through his back injury on Friday for the Kings. (Source: Jason Anderson on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Metu has missed the past three games, and it sounds like he will attempt to return on Friday. It sounds like he will be limited at best.

Tyrese Haliburton is expected to miss the rest of this season with a knee injury after leaving Sunday's game early. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: An MRI revealed no ligament damage to his left knee, but Haliburton is still expected to miss the rest of this season. He will not require surgery and is expected to make a full recovery.

For the third straight game, both C Richaun Holmes and C Damien Jones saw minutes ahead of Whiteside on the depth chart.

Fantasy Impact: Unfortunately, if it wasn't obvious already, Whiteside has become droppable. He certainly had his moments of value due to his rebounding and shot blocking prowess, but his lack of offensive awareness was simply unplayable at times. If you weren't already convinced he has no place in fantasy, the Kings lost by 49 points on Wednesday and Whiteside still didn't see any minutes.

Maurice Harkless scored 20 points (7-12 FG, 3-4 3PT, 3-4 FT) with seven rebounds and two steals across 29 minutes during Tuesday's 134-120 loss against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Fantasy Impact: Harkless buried three triples and collected seven rebounds while forcing two steals during Tuesday's loss. The veteran forward played a clean game, committing zero turnovers, and is a great DFS salary saver at just $3,600 on FanDuel during the second game of a series back-to-back against the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

Kings G Kyle Guy put up 17 points (6-9 FG, 4-6 3PT, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, and four assists in 22 minutes of action in Thursday's blowout of the Warriors.

Fantasy Impact: This is only Guy's fifth appearance of the year and the only game in which he scored a bucket. It seems that everyone got in on the blowout fun and Guy was no exception. Despite the good game he should not be on your fantasy radar.

The Kings have released PF Jabari Parker after two seasons with the club, per Jason Jones of the Athletic. (Source: Jason Jones)

Fantasy Impact: Having played in only three games this season for the Kings, they decided to part ways with the veteran forward. This likely spells the end of Parker's career after being a major bust since his draft day.

Sacramento Kings PF Nemanja Bjelica is reportedly in the midst of finalizing a trade deal that will send him to the Miami Heat, per Adrian Wojnarowski. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bjelica is reportedly set to be traded to the Miami Heat where he could see his usage increase for fantasy purposes. The fifth-year power forward averaged 7.2 points and 3.8 rebounds across 26 games for the Kings but could see an increase in minutes as he adds some much-needed shooting depth to a struggling Heat team.

The Sacramento Kings have waived forward Glenn Robinson III on Wednesday. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Sacramento Kings have waived forward Glenn Robinson III on Wednesday. Robinson has averaged 5.3 points in 23 games this season.

Kings SG DaQuan Jeffries got his second career start Monday night where he led the team in minutes played (40), scored a career-high 18 points (5-13 FG, 2-5 3PT, 6-7 FT), added six rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block as the Kings dropped their seventh-straight game 128-115 to the Bucks.

Fantasy Impact: Jeffries has played well when given the chance to do so. If the team continues their struggles look for Jeffries to get more playing time heading into the All-Star break. He got the start over SGs Tyrese Haliburton and Corey Joesph. Look for Jeffries to return to his supporting role on Tuesday when the Kings travel to Brooklyn to face the Nets.

Kings SG Cory Joseph scored 22 points (10-13 FG, 2-2 3PT), added two rebounds, and dished five assists in Monday night's 136-125 loss to the Nets.

Fantasy Impact: Joseph got the start against the Nets due to matchups as the Nets start a three-guard lineup. He had arguably his best game of the season with 22 points on 13 shots and also logged the most minutes of the season (31). Joseph paid dividends to any fantasy manager in need of a desperation spot start. This trend of starting three guards against the Nets should be monitored by managers as usage for an extra G could increase. The Kings dropped their fourth straight and are off until Thursday when they take on the Heat.
