Fantasy Impact: DiVincenzo will be an extremely valuable shooter on the open market. At just 25, he still has a ton left to offer and could be a great pickup for a contending team. He would likely get a fantasy boost playing with some more talent.

According to Jason Anderson, Sacramento Kings Owner Vivek Ranadive and GM Monte McNair have been seen scouting three top draft prospects including Purdue shooting guard Jaden Ivey, Arizona forward Bennedict Mathurin, and Duke small forward AJ Griffin. (Source: Jason Anderson)

Fantasy Impact: In the recent days, the Kings have continued to conduct pre-draft workouts and scouting on several of the NBA Drafts top-level prospects including Purdue shooting guard Jaden Ivey, Arizona forward Bennedict Mathurin, and Duke small forward AJ Griffin. Both Ivey and Griffin are projected top-10 selections in the draft while Mathurin has continued to be a trendy name to watch for as a now potential lottery selection. The Kings hold the No. 4 pick in the draft and have continued to express interest in adding a guard to play alongside De'Aaron Fox.

Damian Jones scored 22 points (8-10 FG, 1-1 3PT, 5-5 FT), in addition to 4 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1 block in 29 minutes Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Damian Jones’ streak of scoring in double-digits reached eight games on Tuesday. During that time, Jones has averaged 16.9 points and 7.5 rebounds per game.

Harrison Barnes scored 12 points (4-9 FG, 0-5 3PT, 4-4 FT), along with 6 rebounds, and 1 assist in the Sacramento loss to New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact: Harrison Barnes posted a very Harrison Barnes stat line Tuesday, despite making every shot he took inside the arc. Barnes had actually contributed for fantasy recently with a double-double, and a 25 point effort over his last two games, but he got back to what we expect from him most nights, barely over 10 points with little else added on.

Davion Mitchell scored 15 points (6-14 FG, 1-4 3PT, 2-2 FT), along with 17 assists, and 1 rebound on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Despite recent reports that the Kings would reduce the rookie’s workload down the stretch, Davion Mitchell played 40 minutes Tuesday, and dished out a new career best 17 assists. Mitchell has started every game since March 18th, and over those 9 games averaged 18.6 points and 8.9 assists per contest. Keep him active until we see proof of decreased minutes.

According to Jason Anderson, Domantas Sabonis (knee) has not been ruled out for the remaining two games of the season. (Source: Jason Anderson)

Fantasy Impact: Sabonis, who has been missing from the team since the middle of March, has not been ruled out for the upcoming road trip. The Kings have two remaining games against the Clippers and Suns to close out the season on Friday. If the veteran remains out, Trey Lyles and Damian Jones will see increased minutes.

Fantasy Impact: Len is dealing with some back soreness that will put his status for Sunday's game in question. If the veteran big can't go against the Warriors, fantasy managers can look for Damian Jones to see additional minutes in his absence.

Wed, Mar 30th 11:23pm EDT
By Nate Lowenthal

Trey Lyles put up 24 points (5-12 FG, 4-6 3PT, 10-12 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in the win.

Fantasy Impact: The former Kentucky Wildcat filled up the stat sheet in this one for the Kings. He was dominant inside and out. He will look to finish the year strongly.

Kings G Josh Jackson is questionable for Wednesday’s game against Houston according to The Sacramento Bee’s Jason Anderson. (Source: Jason Anderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Josh Jackson is recovering from a non-COVID related illness and appears in danger of missing his second straight contest. Active or not, the 25-year old does not carry any fantasy value right now as he had registered three straight healthy DNP’s prior to missing Monday’s game in Miami.

Kings G Jeremy Lamb is questionable for Wednesday’s game in Houston according to The Sacramento Bee’s Jason Anderson. (Source: Jason Anderson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jeremy Lamb left Monday’s game with soreness in his left hamstring after contributing six points, one rebound, one block and one steal in only 9 minutes. If Lamb cannot go on Wednesday, expect to see increased minutes from Donte DiVencenzo, as well as Davion Mitchell.

Chimezie Metu recorded 22 points (8-11 FG, 3-4 3PT, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 26 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's win over the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact: Metu supplied the Kings with much needed offense and valuable minutes with their superstars De'Aaron Fox and Demantas Sabonis inactive. The USC product showed his versatility by knocking down three huge triples. At only 21.0 minutes per game on the season, the young forward is still a ways away from sustaining any fantasy value. However, the 25-year-old will look to stay productive when the Kings play the Magic in Orlando on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Holmes is dealing with personal issues that will knock him out for the rest of the season. The specifics of his issues are still unknown, but it is serious enough to knock him out for the remainder of the season. Look for Damian Jones and Trey Lyles to see additional minutes off the bench for the rest of the season.

According to Jason Anderson, Justin Holiday (illness) will not play on Monday against the Bulls. (Source: Jason Anderson)

Fantasy Impact: Despite being listed as questionable on Monday with an illness, Holiday will not play. According to Jason Anderson, Donte DiVincenzo will start in his place for the injury-riddled Kings.

Maurice Harkless (ankle) is listed as questionable to play in Saturday night's game against the Utah Jazz, per the NBA Injury Report. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Harkless is dealing with a right-ankle sprain that has forced him to miss six-consecutive games, and that streak could possibly extend on Saturday. It isn't clear if he is intending to play, but trends tell us its leaning towards him being unavailable. If he is available to play, look for him to be on a minute limit against the Jazz.

Fantasy Impact: The rest of the details of this trade are still being worked out, but it sounds like this might be a four-team trade. It was expected that a big man would be on the move for the Kings once they acquired Domantas Sabonis.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski, Tristan Thompson has been traded to the Pacers (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski)

Fantasy Impact: In a blockbuster trade on Tuesday, the Indiana Pacers sent Domontas Sabonis, Jeremy Lamb, and Justin Holiday to the Kings for a package of Tyrese Haliburton, Tristan Thompson, and Buddy Hield. The move opens up heavy minutes in the frontcourt for the Pacers that should go to a combination of Oshae Brissett, Goga Bitadze, and Isaiah Jackson. Bitadze will likely get the first crack at starting in the rotation and will more than likely be the highest fantasy producer. Haliburton should also open up minutes in the backcourt for Maurice Harkless and Davion Mitchell. Mitchell is likely to slot in as a top-100 player in Roto-leagues the rest of the season with Haliburton gone. We should see both Sabonis and Haliburton remain inside the top-50 of roto leagues as well despite the movement.

According to Sean Cunningham, Kings G Terence Davis II is getting surgery on his wrist Tuesday and will remain out indefinitely. (Source: Sean Cunningham)

Fantasy Impact: Davis, who was in the midst of a breakout season, saw his season cut short as he suffered a wrist injury on January 26th against the Celtics. He will head to have surgery on his wrist Tuesday which will mark him as out indefinitely. With the veteran out, Buddy Hield and Davion Mitchell have continued to soak up his usage and minutes.
