Sacramento Kings

Marc J. Spears is reporting on Twitter that Kings forward Marvin Bagley III is expected to return to the lineup this season. (Source: Marc J. Spears on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Although it was reported today that the second-year forward is currently without a timetable for return, he is making progress in his recovery and has not been ruled out for the year. Bagley III has not played since January 20th and has only appeared in 13 contests this season but their is hope that he will return sometime before the end of the regular season. In the meantime, Richaun Holmes and Harry Giles III should continue seeing plenty of minutes at the power forward spot in Bagley's absence.

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.

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Buddy Hield scored just 11 points on 4-12 shooting from the field, with five rebounds, one assist, one steal, three triples, and two turnovers in Sunday night's 118-113 loss to the Raptors.

Fantasy Impact: Hield struggled to get going in this one, only scoring 11 points on 12 shots. Coach Luke Walton even decided to keep him on the bench during the fourth quarter due to his poor shooting on the night. Fantasy owners that drafted the 5th-year guard probably didn't expect him to take a step back this year, but they also probably didn't expect he'd be coming off the bench for Sacramento either. He's still averaging 19.8 points per game, but that's fewer than last season, and he's shooting only 42.9 percent from the field, which is the worst he's shot the ball since his rookie season in New Orleans. Keep rolling Buddy out there, and hope that he gets more minutes and has better shooting performances than he did tonight.

De'Aaron Fox scored 28 points (8-16 FG, 2-6 3 PT, 10-10 FT), with four rebounds, four assists, and three turnovers in Sunday night's 118-113 loss to Toronto.

Fantasy Impact: Fox was the primary scorer for the Kings tonight. He only handed out four assists, as compared to dishing out 11 just one night before against Portland. On the year, Fox is averaging 20.4 points on a career-high 47.5 percent shooting from the field, four rebounds, 6.8 assists, 1.4 steals, and 0.5 blocks in just under 32 minutes per game. As long as he can stay healthy down the stretch, look for Fox to provide his fantasy owners with top-50 9-cat production.

Richaun Holmes provided 10 points (3-8 FG, 4-6 FT) eight rebounds and one block 19 minutes in Saturday's 123-111 win over the Trail Blazers.

Fantasy Impact: Holmes returned Saturday from nearly a two-month absence due to a labral tear in his right shoulder. He logged 19 minutes and chipped in 10 points off the bench in Saturday's win over Portland. Holmes was able to come away from the game unscathed and should be fine going forward. He might be limited the first few games, but with the Kings in the hunt fotr the eighth seed, the 26-year old should see plenty of run as the season winds down. The Kings next scheduled game is Sunday, home against the Raptors.

Harrison Barnes registered 20 points (7-13 FG, 5-7 3PT, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and an assist across 36 minutes in Saturday's 123 -111 win over the Trail Blazers.

Fantasy Impact: Barnes played a key role in helping the Kings tie a team record for three-pointers by burying five triples in Saturday's win. He has scored double figures in four consecutive games during the month of March. The Kings are making a late-season push for the playoffs, and Barnes perimeter scoring has helped play a keep part for the team's run towards an eighth seed. The 27-year old is having a solid season, averaging 14.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.5 triples across 63 games this year. The Kings next scheduled game is Sunday, home against the Raptors.

Bogdan Bogdanovic amassed 27 points (10-15 FG, 7-11 3PT), eight assists, five rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot across 29 minutes in Saturday's 123-111 win over the Trail Blazers.

Fantasy Impact: The Kings tied a single-game record for three-pointers. Bogdanovic played a key role in tying the record by burying a season-high seven triples in Saturday's win. He has been on a roll lately, averaging 19.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 3.8 triples over his last four contests. Bogdanovic should be owned in all league formats. The Kings are currently in the hunt for the eighth seed, Bogdanovic will look to keep up his strong play in Sunday's tilt against the Raptors.

Alex Len registered four points (2-2 FG, 0-2 3PT) and four rebounds over 15 minutes in Thursday's 125-108 loss to the 76er's.

Fantasy Impact: Len hasn't made much of an impact in his seven-game stint with the Kings, unable to capitalize on their injury-ridden frontcourt. He is averaging 6.3 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.6 blocks, 0.6 assists, and 0.3 steals over 17.9 minutes. While his rebounds have improved from Atlanta, that is mainly due to his different role on his new team. Len was hardly on the fantasy radar since joining the Kings, and once Richaun Holmes returns over the weekend he can be safely dropped in all leagues.

Harry Giles III recorded 10 points (5-8 FG), two rebounds, one assist, and one steal over 15 minutes in Thursday's 125-108 loss to the 76er's.

Fantasy Impact: Giles III has been given his fair share of opportunity since Richaun Holmes has been injured and the Kings traded away Dewayne Dedmon, but that should come to an end this weekend when Holmes returns. Giles has had some solid production lately, scoring double digits in seven straight contests, including his first career double-double on January 22nd. Since Holmes suffered his injury on January 6th, Giles has averaged 8.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.4 blocks over 17.5 minutes. Compare that to the 4.6 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.3 blocks over 10.6 minutes he was averaging prior to Holmes's injury and it's clear that his value will disappear soon.

Kent Bazemore totaled 14 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3PT, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, one steal, and one block over 33 minutes in Thursday's 125-108 loss to the 76er's.

Fantasy Impact: Bazemore's move from Portland to Sacramento has suddenly thrust him into the realm of fantasy relevance. After averaging 7.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.7 blocks over 25.8 minutes with the Trail Blazers, he has now averaged 10.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.2 steals, 1.0 assists, and 0.4 blocks per game over 23.3 minutes with the Kings. Yet to start a single game in Sacramento, he has played all 19 games off the bench and has been able to churn his court time into more meaningful minutes, even though he is playing less minutes. He improved his field goal percentage by 6.7% and his three-point shot by 4.6% since switching teams and can be relied on as a nightly streaming option.

Cory Joseph (heel) is probable for Thursday's game against the Sixers. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Despite dealing with a heel injury as of late, Joseph has yet to miss a game and is expected to suit up Thursday. He can be used as a streamer and should be owned in deep-league formats. Joseph is averaging 6.5 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.8 triples across 61 games this season.

Jabari Parker scored four points (1-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added four rebounds in 15 minutes off the bench on Thursday against the Grizzlies.

Fantasy Impact: Maybe it wasn’t fair to expect much from Parker coming back from injury and finding his way on a new team, but he certainly didn’t wow. With Marvin Bagely still struggling to get healthy, there is room for Parker to seize a sizable role on this team and become a solid source of points and rebounds, if he can get himself back on track.

Daquan Jeffries managed five points (2-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and a steal over five minutes in the Kings’ 130-111 loss to the Mavericks on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Jeffries only took the court briefly on Wednesday, though he was able to score a point per minute in the loss. He's played most of the season with the Stockton Kings and has only logged 14 minutes of NBA action in 2019-20.

Dewayne Dedmon was traded to the Hawks with two second-round picks Tuesday in exchange for Jabari Parker and Alex Len. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dedmon was dealt to Atlanta, where he played the last two years before signing with the Kings this past off-season. He is averaging 5.1 points, 4.9 rebounds and 0.8 blocks across 34 games for the Kings this season. Dedmon will backup newly acquired Clint Capela, his fantasy value should remain the same with the switch to his new team. The 30-year old center should be held onto in deep-league formats, but it would take an injury to Capela to make Dedmond fantasy relevant in standard leagues.

Eric Mika was a DNP-CD in Monday's 113-109 win over the Timberwolves on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: The rookie from BYU made his NBA debut Saturday against the Lakers, logging 19 minutes of action the same day he signed his 10-day contract with Sacramento. His DNP-CD on Monday seems like it will be the norm for as long as he's with the parent club, and Saturday's healthy minute total the outlier.

Trevor Ariza scored seven points on 3-for-7 shooting with four rebounds, one assist and one three-pointers in 32 minutes on Sunday as the Blazers defeated the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact: Ariza who was playing in his second game with the Blazers could not follow up his debut performance when he scored 21 points with seven rebounds. The veteran forward will be seeing more minutes with his new team and is worth owning in 12 team leagues and deeper.
