SAC Kings G Tyrese Haliburton posted 11 points (5-13 FG) while adding in 12 boards and a board during Wednesday's win over the Clippers.

Fantasy Impact: Haliburton has sharp on Wednesday scoring his first double-double since November 15th. With Harrison Barnes out of the lineup, the second-year guard has averaged 10.5 points, 7.0 assists, and 3.3 rebounds in 4 games. With no update on the veteran Barnes' status, expect Haliburton to continue to see 30+ minutes per night.

SAC Kings G Davion Mitchell chipped in 20 points (7-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds, two assists and two steals across 28 minutes during Wednesday's 124-115 win over the Clippers.

Fantasy Impact: Mitchell had a hot hand off the bench in the win, knocking down three of four attempts from beyond the arc en route to his second game of 20-plus points on the season. The rookie guard has been inconsistent throughout the campaign, but he has been given ample opportunity to succeed, frequently seeing minutes in the 20s and 30s. Mitchell is averaging 9.4 points, 3.4 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 1.2 three-pointers in 23 games thus far.

SAC Kings G Terrance Davis finished Wednesday's 124-115 victory over Los Angeles with 23 points (9-14 FG, 5-9 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and three steals in 30 minutes.

Fantasy Impact: With Harrison Barnes out of the lineup again, Davis stepped in and was excellent in a win over the Clippers on Wednesday. He managed to score 23 points on 9-14 shooting while grabbing three steals and four boards. With the return of Barnes and Mo Harkless imminent, Davis will likely return to a low-minute bench role.

Kings G De'Aaron Fox notched 24 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 8-9 FT), three rebounds, five assists, one block and three steals across 36 minutes during Wednesday's 124-115 victory over Los Angeles.

Fantasy Impact: It was a very efficient game for the struggling guard. After tossing one of his worst games of the season against the Lakers Tuesday, Fox responded nicely with a bounceback. He managed to collect 24 points on 50% shooting from both the field and the three. He has picked things up a bit of late, posting per-game averages of 21.8 points, 4.7 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 1.5 three-pointers and 1.2 steals over his past six games.

SAC Kings Chimezie Metu amassed 14 points (7-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 11 rebounds and three steals in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 117-92 loss to the Lakers.

Fantasy Impact: After being named a five-game starter with Luke Walton as head coach, it was assumed that Metu would lose playing time under new head coach Alvin Gentry. That hasn't been the case. Metu has been seeing 25+ minutes per game and logged the start on Tuesday scrapping together 14 points, 11 boards, and three steals. He is worth adding in 12-team fantasy leagues.

SAC Kings Richaun Holmes ended with 27 points (12-13 FG, 3-5 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, and two blocks across 33 minutes during Tuesday's 117-92 loss to the Lakers.

Fantasy Impact: In his first game back from injury, Holmes looked electric scoring 27 points on 12-13 from the field. He nearly missed the double-double finishing just one rebound shy. Holmes has been no stranger to 20-point efforts this season, as Tuesday marks his sixth effort with 20-plus. It was also his fifth effort with multiple blocks.

According to Mike Trudell, the Kings have ruled out Maurice Harkless against the Lakers on Tuesday. (Source: Mike Trudell)

Fantasy Impact: After returning from a two-game absence, Harkless must have reaggravated his injury as he is now listed out for Tuesday. Expect Terrance Davis to see extended minutes with Harkless out.

Sacramento Kings PF Tristan Thompson scored 13 points (6-7 FG, 1-4 FT) while chipping in five boards and two assists during Friday's win over the Lakers.

Fantasy Impact: Outside of this one-off game, Thompson has not been fantasy-relevant for most of the season. He's played sub-20 minutes in every game this season but two.

Sacramento Kings G Buddy Hield accumulated 21 points (7-15 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes during Monday's 102-94 loss to Philadelphia.

Fantasy Impact: Hield trailed just starting guard De'Aaron Fox for the team lead in scoring on Monday. The sharp shooting guard did exactly that nailing 7-15 shots, 5-11 3P, and 2-2 FT. The guard also managed to chip in a team high nine boards as well. The past two games, Fields has continued to produce strong play in what looks like a new comfortable bench role.

G Delon Wright has now been included in this three-team trade and is being sent to the Atlanta Hawks. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wright averaged just 10.2 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game last season, but showed flashes of potential when given extended playing time. He will now slot in as the primary backup point guard behind Trae Young in Atlanta.

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.

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.

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.

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.
