Marvin Bagley III started the second half in place of Nemanja Bejlica on Saturday and finished with 14 points, two rebounds, two steals and a block.
Coach Dave Joerger decided to go with Bagley against Blake Griffin in the second half which is good experience although he wasn't very successful. He has scored double-digits in five straight games and has 11.8 points and 7.2 rebounds over his last six. His lack of production in other categories makes him a difficult hold but his minutes are slowly climbing since return from injury.

Marvin Bagley III scored 15 points and added eight rebounds in Thursday's game.
He might be taking notes from Zach Randolph on how to provide ONLY points and rebounds for fantasy purposes. While this is his profile, it's hard to get excited about him this season. Of course, the long-term outlook is still good. In theory, he'll be a good enough scorer at some point to overcome the lack of defensive and passing numbers.

Marvin Bagley scored 13 points on 6-of-12 shooting with 11 rebounds and an assist on Monday.
Bagley notched his first double-double since returning from his bruised knee and the playing time is trending upwards. He's going to have a significant role because the higher ups have made it known that that's what they want so he's worth owning if you need traditional big man stats and can stomach some poor free throw shooting.

Marvin Bagley scored 11 points off the bench in Saturday's win over the Hornets, hitting 5-of-13 shots (including a three) with nine rebounds, one steal and one block in 25 minutes.
The Kings need Bagley on the court for those 25 minutes and he'll probably inch up as the year goes on. He has brought back top-180 value this year in 23 mpg, so there's a good rationale for calling him a must-own player since top-150 is in his sights and he can only go up from there. The free throw shooting is going to cap his overall upside, so it's not a must-add situation by any stretch.

Marvin Bagley returned from a rest day to score 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting with seven boards, an assist and two steals in Thursday’s win.
The Kings are pushing for him to play more when healthy, but it looks like they aren’t afraid to sit the rook to ensure he can stay on the court. He’s a decent low-end play because of the minutes that he’ll receive but there are still some holes in his game in both fantasy and reality.

Marvin Bagley III is not listed on the injury report for Thursday's game.
Bagley returned on Monday to 20 minutes of action before sitting out Tuedsay on the team's back-to-back. With two days of rest, it seems Bagley is ready to roll. This likely means fewer minutes for Nemanja Bjelica and a potential oust from the rotation for Harry Giles. If Bagley is floating around out there, for whatever reason, you can scoop him up.

Marvin Bagley III (rest) will not play on Tuesday.
Last night Bagley said he was feeling good and expected to play tonight, but the training staff has overruled him on the second half of a back-to-back. Nemanja Bjelica and Harry Giles will get a bit more run as a result. Bagley will be back for Thursday's game.

Speaking to reporters after Monday’s game, Marvin Bagley sounded certain that he will play in Phoenix tonight while on the second leg of a back-to-back.
The rookie looked healthy yesterday on his return from a left knee bone bruise that sidelined him for 11 games, logging 20 minutes and scoring eight points with six assists, an assist and a block. We’ll wait for confirmation about his status tonight since the Kings are being cautious with their young star but it’s great to see him feeling good. The Bjelica-Bagley battle for minutes will continue and the rookie deserves consideration in standard leagues as the season progresses.

Marvin Bagley scored eight points on 2-of-7 shooting with six rebounds, an assist and a block on Monday.
Bagley returned from a left knee bone bruise on Monday and logged 20 minutes off the bench. The Kings were making a push for Bagley to get more playing time and before he got hurt he was putting up standard league value so he's worth scooping up now if he's on any wires.

Marvin Bagley III (left knee bone bruise) is available to play on Monday.
Bagley returns well ahead of schedule but will likely have a minutes limit considering he's coming off an 11-game absence. Nemanja Bjelica will take a hit with this news, though he's probably going to land just above the cut line in most standard formats even with Bagley back. The Kings never said anything about Bagley getting back on the court after saying he'd sit out for two more weeks on December 28, but he's back and ready to rock. Get him in your lineups if you normally would.

Marvin Bagley III (left knee bone bruise) is questionable ahead of Monday's game.
The Kings continue to list Bagley as questionable despite declaring him out of basketball activity for two weeks about 10 days ago. You have to check on his status as long as he's getting these questionable tags but it'd still be surprising if he played this week.

Marvin Bagley III (left knee bone bruise) has been ruled out on Saturday.
Bagley was curiously upgraded to questionable, despite the Kings basically ruling him out for at least two weeks at the end of December. We wouldn't count on a return until he hits the practice court at least once, but it does seem like he's going to beat the original expectations.
