Christian Villere is joined by Sacramento Kings Beat Blogger for Hoop Ball, Jon Schifferle. The fellas get into the previous night's win against the Hawks. They spend a good deal of time discussing Iman Shumpert…

Iman Shumpert (sore right knee) has been ruled out of the Rockets' next two games.
Shumpert's absence will open up more minutes on the wing for Gerald Green but there isn't much impact here.

Iman Shumpert made his Rockets debut on Saturday against the Thunder, scoring three points on 1-of-5 shooting (all threes) with four rebounds, one steal and one block in 24 minutes off the bench.
Shumpert might have some low-end value in 12-14 team formats but he'll also have some hurdles to clear, including his own health and the usage monster that is James Harden.
February 6, 2019, 8:12 pmIman Shumpert - G - Houston Rockets
Iman Shumpert is headed to the Rockets in a three-way deal that sends Marquese Chriss, Brandon Knight and 2019 protected lottery first-round pick to the Cavs, while the Kings end up getting Alec Burks.
This was a good haul for Houston as they secure a strong defender in Shumpert and shed their underperforming assets in the process. His addition will almost surely hurt James Ennis III's recent spike in deep-league value. Ennis is a drop in 14-team leagues, but a hold in deeper ones as the Rockets like to keep a tight rotation.

Iman Shumpert scored 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting to go with three triples, six rebounds, six assists and a block
Shumpert pops up every once in a while with a solid scoring output and continues to start for the Kings, who refuse to let Bogdan Bogdanovic (21 minutes, six points on 3-of-10 shooting with two rebounds, two assists and a steal) do his thing.
January 27, 2019, 7:43 pmIman Shumpert - G - Sacramento Kings
Iman Shumpert drew the start on Sunday against the Clippers and responded well, picking up 16 points, six rebounds, three 3-pointers and two blocks.
Shumpert has been able to hold of Bogdan Bogdanovic (19 points, three steals, one 3-pointer in 31 minutes) as a starter for most of the season, though not on the back of consistent fantasy-relevant lines like this. Owners in deeper 9-cat formats can give Shump a look because of his consistent role but Bogdanovic is the vastly superior asset any way you slice it.
January 25, 2019, 8:03 pmBogdan Bogdanovic - G - Sacramento Kings
Bogdan Bogdanovic will get the start on Friday despite Iman Shumpert being active.
Bogdanovic has racked up 20 assists over his last two games so maybe coach Joerger wants to see a little more ball movement in his starting lineup. Either way, Bogdanovic is already owned in competitive standard leagues as he should be.

Iman Shumpert (rest) will sit out Tuesday's game against the Raptors.
Shumpert's been scuffling of late and the Kings played on Monday, so he'll get an extra day off here. Bogdan Bogdanovic is likely to slide into the starting lineup in his place, with Justin Jackson and Yogi Ferrell among those who should see more playing time.

Iman Shumpert (sprained right index finger) is listed as probable for Thursday's game against Detroit.
Shumpert missed the last three games, but appears ready for a return. Bogdan Bogdanovic will likely slide back to the bench while Justin Jackson and Ben McLemore lose out on some minutes.

Iman Shumpert's sprained index finger is not yet fully healed putting his status for Thursday's game in question.
If Shumpert is ruled unavailable, expect Bogdan Bogdanovic to stick in the Kings' starting five and see more run from the likes of Justin Jackson and possibly even Ben McLemore.
January 8, 2019, 1:40 pmIman Shumpert - G - Sacramento Kings
Iman Shumpert (sprained right index finger) has been ruled out on Tuesday.
Shumpert also sat on Monday so it's no surprise that he misses both legs of a back-to-back. He's missed three straight games and Bogdan Bogdanovic has started all of them, with Justin Jackson playing more off the bench. Expect more of the same tonight.
January 7, 2019, 3:36 pmIman Shumpert - G - Sacramento Kings
Iman Shumpert (sprained right index finger) will not play on Monday.
Shumpert also sat out on Saturday. Bogdan Bogdanovic started that one and Justin Jackson scored a career-high 25 in extended run. Those are your two beneficiaries for this one, but Bogdanovic is the only one that gets our endorsement in leagues with fewer than 16 teams.

Iman Shumpert has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Warriors with a sprained right index finger.
We could see Bogdan Bogdanovic slide into the starting lineup or even Justin Jackson. Regardless of who starts, it's Bogdanovic who projects to be the biggest beneficiary of this news.
