Cory Joseph

  • Yogi Ferrell
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    Yogi Ferrell saw 19 minutes off the bench on Thursday and contributed 11 points, one rebound, two assists, three steals, two 3-pointers and one turnover.

    Ferrell and starter, Cory Joseph split the point guard responsibilities as they both saw 19 minutes. Joseph was also good in his stint, finishing with 13 points (5-of-6), two rebounds, two assists, one steal, three treys and two turnovers. The Kings will hope to have a much healthier season from their youngsters including De'Aaron Fox so that they don't have to rely on Cory Joseph or Yogi Ferrell for starter-level minutes.

  • De'Aaron Fox
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    De'Aaron Fox (left shoulder soreness) will miss his second consecutive game on Thursday vs. the Lakers.

    Fox will sit out the Kings' last regular season game as they have already been eliminated from playoff contention. Cory Joseph should draw the start but there are younger players with higher upside on the wire with the silly season in full swing.

  • Cory Joseph
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    Cory Joseph started for the Kings on Tuesday and dished out six assists but shot poorly from the field, going 1-for-9 to end the game with eight points in 37 minutes.

    CoJo did manage to connect on all six attempts from the free throw line and added four rebounds and three turnovers to the box. The low-end performance is not too surprising, given that he was matched up against Lonzo Ball. Leave Joseph on the wire in all resumption leagues.

    Cory Joseph and Alex Len will each receive spot start on Tuesday against the Pelicans.

    The Kings will rest both De'Aaron Fox and Richaun Holmes in this one, as they have been eliminated from playoff contention. This will be a good opportunity for Len to showcase his game. He hasn't had much of a chance to do so since being acquired from the Hawks before the trade deadline in February. Joseph is a league veteran and can be penciled in for a decent line in the start.

    Cory Joseph will start vs. the Rockets on Sunday.

    Joseph is getting inserted into the lineup in place of Kent Bazemore (left calf soreness). Joseph should be good for steals and 3-pointers against a fast-paced offense like the Rockets, plus he is capable of delivering some nice assist figures. He could be in for a sneaky good night.

  • Kent Bazemore
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Kent Bazemore (left calf soreness) is questionable for the Kings' game on Sunday as he continues to recover from a calf injury.

    Bazemore could join Richaun Holmes (right hip soreness) on the sidelines which would open up playing time for both DaQuan Jefferies and Cory Joseph. Despite the increased opportunity, neither are worth rostering in the short-term.

  • Nemanja Bjelica
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Despite being inserted back into the starting lineup on Thursday to replace Cory Joseph who started on Tuesday, Nemanja Bjelica played just 16 minutes compared with the 26 minutes that Joseph saw off the bench.

    Bjelica was efficient as usual in limited action, posting 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting with four rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers. Joseph produced a similar line – 10 points, five rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers – but had an additional 10 minutes of game time. Bjelica is the better fantasy option and should be rostered across resumption leagues while CoJo is a top-100 player on his best nights.

  • Cory Joseph
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    The Kings will start Cory Joseph instead of Nemanja Bjelica on Tuesday against the Mavs.

    Bjelica has been a defensive turnstile all year long, and while Joseph has been underwhelming, Luke Walton might prefer his "safe" play as the games swiftly approach must-win territory for the Kings. CoJo isn't a recommended fantasy option, however, and this lineup is unlikely to fix what truly ails the Kings anyway. De'Aaron Fox, Richaun Holmes, Harrison Barnes and Bogdan Bogdanovic will round out the lineup.

  • De'Aaron Fox
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    De'Aaron Fox is still recovering from a left ankle sprain that he suffered in practice last week and will be sidelined for the Kings' first scrimmage against the Heat on Wednesday night.

    The team will move very cautiously with their point guard of the future as he works his way back from his most recent ailment. Cory Joseph should get the start while Yogi Ferrell could also see some additional run on Wednesday.

  • Cory Joseph
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    Cory Joseph signed with the Kings over the summer and was able to provide them with some point-guard depth, posting 6.3 PTS, 0.7 3s and 3.4 AST in 24.0 MPG over 64 games in 2019-20.

    With De'Aaron Fox suffering an unfortunate ankle sprain in practice in the Orlando Bubble, Joseph has been tasked to step up into possibly the starting PG role for the resumption of the season. Overall, he was good for some low-end value this season, ranking 242nd in 8-cat and 237th in 9-cat per-game value.

  • Cory Joseph
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    Cory Joseph was working as the starting point guard in Kings practice on Thursday.

    This shouldn't come as a surprise considering CoJo filled the starting spot when De'Aaron Fox got hurt in the regular season. Luke Walton said that the team won't rush Fox back so Joseph might be working his way onto the radar in fantasy leagues that cover the Orlando session. He'll be a late-round guy at best, however, and Bogdan Bogdanovic is the far more intriguing option. Yogi Ferrell should also slide into the rotation if Fox has to miss games, but we'll have more updates on Fox's outlook in a week or so.

  • De'Aaron Fox
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    De'Aaron Fox suffered a sprained left ankle in practice on Wednesday and is expected to be re-evaluated in 7-10 days.

    This is unfortunate news for a Kings team that was almost fully healthy with the exception of Harrison Barnes (Covid-19). The eight-game seeding games will begin on July 31 for the Kings which gives De'Aaron 16 days to get healthy. This is something to monitor as teams may be extra cautious in Orlando so that they can head into 2020-21 season fully healthy, especially teams that have practically no chance at contending like the Kings. Cory Joseph would see an increase in minutes if Fox sat out for any length of time but he does not have an intriguing fantasy stat-set.

    PG, Sacramento Kings

    Cory Joseph logged 12 minutes off the bench on Thursday and scored zero points on 0-of-1 shooting to go with one rebound, one assist and two blocks.

    Joseph was dealing with a heel injury and played through it and got to see the floor for a bit tonight. He can be ignored in fantasy formats.

    Cory Joseph (heel) is probable for Thursday's game vs. the Sixers.

    Joseph was able to play through the injury on Tuesday, finishing with 14 points, four rebounds and four assists in 27 minutes. Joseph is a deep-league streamer for assists and steals.

    PG, Sacramento Kings

    Cory Joseph (heel) is available on Tuesday night against the Wizards.

    Joseph has actually been playing decent of late, carrying nearly top-150 value over the past two weeks. In deeper leagues, he's worth streaming for a game if you're in a pinch, especially if De'Aaron Fox is forced to miss any time with injury.
