Nemanja Bjelica scored six points on 2-of-3 shooting with nine rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 27 minutes of action on Thursday.
There are some serious issues on defense when Bjelica is on the floor which will cap his minutes played, but coach Joerger loves playing him as much as he can. While he's starting and earning solid minutes he's a valid streaming option for owners in need of boards and peripheral stats as the Kings have another two games this week and a four-game week coming up.

Nemanja Bjelica double-doubled again (14 points and 10 rebounds) on Tuesday in a start vs. the Nets.
It had been four games since Bjelica had reached double figures in either points or rebounds, but this actually makes it three double-doubles in six games for the big man. He's hard to trust in fantasy right now simply because his role often changes, but when Bjelica has gotten starter's minutes, he has been a top-100 player.

Nemanja Bjelica logged 19 minutes as a starter on Friday but did not do much with his time on the floor, tallying just four points on 2-of-11 shooting with six rebounds and one assist.
The return of Marvin Bagley (15 points on 5-of-9 shooting, four rebounds, one assist and one steal) has really hurt Bjelica's value. It may be time to consider dropping him and moving on to a more productive FA.

Nemanja Bjelica double-doubled again on Monday with 15 points and 12 rebounds while chipping in three assists, a steal and three triples.
That's the second consecutive double-double for Bjelica who has suddenly found himself in a little groove offensively. He logged 36 minutes off the bench and had a team-high plus-10 which is good news, but Bjelica is still a risky option.

Nemanja Bjelica dropped a huge fantasy performance out of nowhere on Saturday afternoon, scoring 13 points to go with 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.
This was Bjelica's first double-digit scoring game since February 13, and it's a throwback to his early-season standard-league run. He might be worth a look while Marvin Bagley remains sidelined as Bjelica has now played at least 24 minutes in three straight games. Harry Giles was limited to six points, five rebounds and a steal on 2-of-11 shooting in 19 minutes.

Nemanja Bjelica played 13 minutes in Friday's 116-109 loss to the Clippers totaling 5 points, three boards and three blocks.
Bjelica had fallen out of the rotation recently, but Marvin Bagley's injury seemed to help Bjelica's cause. However, it was just 13 minutes so he won't be approaching relevant fantasy value anytime soon.

Nemanja Bjelica received a DNP-CD against the Warriors on Thursday.
Bjelica is now the odd man out with Bogdan Bogdanovic starting and Harrison Barnes entering the fray as well. It doesn't help that Marvin Bagley has been going bonkers and as of now Bjelica is waiver wire fodder.

Nemanja Bjelica scored 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting (including three treys) with three rebounds, three assists and one steal over 20 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets.
If Bjelica is engaged in the game and not getting crushed out there, he can put up stats in spurts. If all goes well he's a late-round value the rest of the way, and there's easily a chance he gets marginalized as the season concludes.
February 8, 2019, 3:40 pmHarrison Barnes - F - Sacramento Kings
Harrison Barnes, Alec Burks and Corey Brewer are all available to play on Friday vs. the Heat.
With a load of new players in town, it’ll be very interesting how Barnes fits, and whether he will play more small forward in Iman Shumpert’s former spot or if he’ll steal some minutes from Neminja Bjelica and Marvin Bagley at the 4. It’ll also be worth watch how Alec Burks impacts Bogdan Bogdanovic.
