    Kent Bazemore will sit out of the team's season finale against the Lakers on Thursday as he nurses a sore left calf.

    The Kings have already been eliminated from postseason contention so there is no reason to risk further injuries. With De'Aaron Fox (shoulder) also sidelined, there will be additional minutes available in the backcourt.

    Kent Bazemore (left calf soreness) will not play on Tuesday against the Pelicans.

    Bazemore has missed the last couple games and with the Kings not really playing for anything it makes sense for him to remain sidelined. Look for DaQuan Jefferies and Jabari Parker to get more minutes on Tuesday.

    Kent Bazemore (left calf soreness) has been deemed questionable to face the Pelicans on Tuesday.

    Bazemore continues to battle an ongoing calf injury and with the Kings having very little to play for, he could miss yet another game. If he remains on the sidelines, look for DaQuan Jefferies and Buddy Hield to pick up the slack.

    DaQuan Jeffries scored a career-high 13 points in a 129-112 loss to the Rockets on Sunday night.

    Jeffries also played a career-high 30 minutes and added two rebounds and two assists to the box score. He shot 5-of-8 from the field and knocked down one 3-pointer. He benefitted from Kent Bazemore (left calf soreness) missing this game, so his minutes will likely be reduced when he returns.

    The Kings will be without Kent Bazemore (left calf soreness) on Sunday against the Rockets.

    Sacramento's season is pretty much over so Bazemore is at risk of being shut down here. His absence will give DaQuan Jeffries, who has been one of the team's more effective players in Orlando, some extra opportunity to shine.

    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.

    Kent Bazemore will not take part in Friday's matchup with the Nets due to left calf soreness.

    We'll see how long Bazemore is absent with this injury for the Kings. They need this win to stay in the race for the spot in the Western Conference. If the Kings start dropping games this could be the end of Bazemore's season if the injury carries any sort of seriousness with it.

    Kent Bazemore is going to see how his left calf reacts to warming up on Friday as the Kings clash vs. the Nets.

    Bazemore is heading for a true game-time decision, and if you have to make a move you're better off grabbing someone with more upside at this point. Bazemore has some sneaky value when healthy, but he's only receiving about 20mpg in the bubble, not enough to make a huge dent in your fantasy outlook.

    Kent Bazemore (left calf soreness) is officially listed as questionable for Friday's matchup against the Nets.

    Bazemore is averaging nearly 21 minutes off the bench over the first four games in the Orlando bubble and has been able to quietly produce top-125 value in the small sample size. There are players with higher upsides on the wire but if you are in a pinch, Bazemore can return a bit of value as the last player on the roster in standard formats. Buddy Hield only saw 10 minutes yesterday but perhaps he will be given more opportunity if Bazemore is sidelined. Hield has shot the ball horribly, shooting .314 from the field on 12.8 attempts per game. He is due for some positive regression if he can get some time off the bench.

    Kent Bazemore was effective off the bench on Tuesday, scoring 16 points to go with two rebounds, two steals and one block in 24 minutes.

    Bazemore has the ability to do a bit of everything for the Kings and certainly provided a nice spark off the bench. His calling card is typically the defensive production and so a scoring barrage such as this is really a bonus. If he can consistently play 24 minutes per game, he is worth a look as a backend fantasy option.

    Kent Bazemore played 23 minutes for the Kings on Friday, putting up eight points, 11 boards and five assists in a 129-120 loss at the hands of the Spurs.

    It was typical night for Bazemore, as he contributed across the board for the Kings. His playing style seems to mesh well with that of De'Aaron Fox, which is good news for him. Fox had an excellent game on Friday and will continue to be the focal point of their offense. Bazemore is not much of a fantasy option but he is still an important member of the Kings roster.

    Kent Bazemore started at small forward in Saturday's scrimmage and came away with 16 points (5-for-14 FG), eight rebounds, three assists, a block and a 3-pointer in 26 minutes of action.

    Bazemore is likely just keeping Harrison Barnes' seat warm, but he has the potential to surface as a 3-and-D fantasy option if he can keep this sort of activity up. DaQuan Jeffries also had a nice game, playing 31 minutes and racking up 10 points, six rebounds, two steals, two blocks and a 3-pointer. Jeffries has played well in both of the Kings' scrimmages now and might be making a case for an extended look should Sacramento end up playing some meaningless games towards the end of their stay in Orlando.

    Kent Bazemore was a fantasy disappointment in 2019-20, mustering value just inside the top-200 in both 8- and 9-cat scoring formats with averages of 8.7 PPG, 1.2 3PG, 4.3 RPG and 1.1 SPG on .374 shooting from the field.

    Bazemore was actually able to see a small uptick in production after getting traded from the Blazers to the Kings, but it was too little too late relegating him to filler-status in deep leagues. Despite being able to bring a diverse stat line, Bazemore's lack of consistency and overall poor shooting efficiency from the field wound up dragging down his value to the fantasy gutter.

    Kent Bazemore, who has been a welcomed presence since joining the Kings in January, reiterated that he'd like to stay with the team.

    Bazemore had a lot of opportunity before him when the Blazers were faltering due to injuries at the start of the season and he failed to take advantage. However, a change of scenery made a significant difference, as his field goal percentage leaped from .347 with the Blazers, to .426 with the Kings, and his scoring also increased from 7.9 points to 10.3 points per contest. He sounds locked in as the Kings prepare for the Orlando bubble, but a healthy Kings' roster could handicap his opportunity for playing time when things start back up.

    Kent Bazemore got hot off the bench on Thursday, scoring 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting to go with nine rebounds, one steal, one block and one triple.

    Bazemore had a hot shooting night off the bench and added defensive stats for some extra goodies. If the Kings are going to miss any of their guards, Bazemore gets a bump in value, but even then, he's a deep-league player.
