Nemanja Bjelica continued to reinforce his value on Wednesday night, collecting another double-double, ending with 11 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and two steals.
Bjelica should be rostered across the board. If you see him on your waivers, pick him up. This kind of performance is on-par with what we can expect from him with Holmes out for a few weeks.

Nemanja Bjelica (ankle) is available for the Kings on Wednesday.
Bjelica should remain a source of standard-league value while Richaun Holmes is out. Make sure he's in your active lineups.

Nemanja Bjelica (right ankle sprain) is probable to face the Mavs on Wednesday.
Bjelica played through the injury on Monday when he exploded for 34 points and eight threes on 13-of-16 from the field. He should be rostered in all formats while Richaun Holmes is sidelined.

Nemanja Bjelica scored a career-high 34 points on 13-of-16 shooting while adding seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and eight 3-pointers on Monday.
Bjelica was an inferno from deep tonight hitting 8-for-10 from distance, which led to a career-high in scoring. He should be owned in all leagues while Richaun Holmes (shoulder) is shelved as someone who can put up stats across the board.

Nemanja Bjelica (right ankle sprain) will start on Monday against the Magic.
Bjelica has started all but three of the Kings' games this season, mainly due to injuries. But regardless of which big man is out, Bjelica continues to provide a little bit of everything.

Nemanja Bjelica (right ankle sprain) is probable to play on Monday.
Bjelica tweaked the ankle on Monday but looked no worse for wear in a 12 & 13 performance, and he should be safe to deploy in all formats moving forward with news that Richaun Holmes will miss a couple weeks at minimum.

Nemanja Bjelica checked several boxes on Friday night, with 12 points (5-for-11 shooting), 13 rebounds, four assists, two triples and a block across 40 minutes.
It seems a different Kings big man gets hurt every week as Bjelica took full advantage of the absences of Marvin Bagley III and Richaun Holmes. Bjelica has been somewhat steady all season so far checking in with top-60 value on the season. Harrison Barnes also got hot in this one with 19 points (8-for-13 shooting), three assists, two triples, a rebound and a steal.

Nemanja Bjelica (left ankle sprain) will play on Friday vs. the Bucks.
With Richaun Holmes and Marvin Bagley III still out, Bjelica should have a wide-open window for a solid fantasy performance.

Nemanja Bjelica is questionable for Friday's contest against the Bucks with a left ankle injury that had him miss practice on Thursday.
Bjelica is getting a sizeable role with the Kings right now so it would unfortunate to see him sit the game out. The Kings are pretty thin upfront and if Bjelica and Marvin Bagley III missed this game Harry Giles and Dewayne Dedmon could be heading for big opportunities on Friday.

Nemanja Bjelica sat out of Thursday's practice with a left ankle injury.
This is the first we are hearing about this and it doesn't appear to be serious. However, it will be important to monitor the Kings' official injury report ahead of Friday's game vs. the Clippers as the Kings were without four rotation players during Thursday's practice.

Nemanja Bjelica poured in 19 points on 7-of-17 shooting with seven rebounds, one assist, three steals and three triples in 38 minutes in a win over the Suns on Tuesday.
It seems like every time the Kings are about to have a healthy lineup, another big man goes down and Bjelica keeps the starting spot. While they're banged up, keep rolling him out there, as he continues to put up top-100 value. Next to Bjelica, Buddy Hield put up 16 points, three boards, two dimes and four treys in just 24 minutes, which may have had to do with a poor defensive effort.
January 7, 2020, 3:51 pmMarvin Bagley IIIPF, Sacramento Kings
Marvin Bagley III (left foot sprain) is being listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Suns.
There still has been no word on if Bagley has practiced or taken contact yet, so a return to game action seems unlikely right now. With Richaun Holmes (doubtful) hurting his shoulder, the Kings could use the services of Bagley. Harry Giles, Nemanja Bjelica and the disgruntled Dewayne Dedmon will all see extra minutes while Bagley and Holmes are out.

Nemanja Bjelica scored eight points on 2-of-4 shooting to go with 10 boards, one assist and two triples on Monday.
Bjelica logged 27 minutes and could continue to see some extra time if Richaun Holmes (shoulder) is sidelined for an extended period of time. He's worth a speculative add for now.
January 5, 2020, 10:19 pmMarvin Bagley IIIPF, Sacramento Kings
Marvin Bagley III (left foot sprain) remains out for Monday's matchup against the Warriors.
The clock is still ticking on when Bagley gets contact work or practice under his belt, much less a return to game action. It'd be nice to get a more thorough update. Keep crossing your fingers and feel free to throw Nemanja Bjeclia onto the floor for Monday. He'll continue returning late-round value as long as Bagley remains sidelined.

Nemanja Bjelica double-doubled in Saturday's loss to the Pelicans, notching 12 points, 10 rebounds, one assist and a steal.
Bjelica is producing nicely in teammate Marvin Bagley III absence. He found himself in foul trouble early and ended up playing just 22 minutes in this one. Owners would be wise to ride him with Bagley III injured, though he was still seeing decent minutes together.
