Fantasy News

  • Marvin Bagley III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Marvin Bagley scored a game-high 30 points in Wednesday's 124-110 win over Melbourne United to go with 14 rebounds, one assist, three steals and a block.

    Bagley went 12-for-17 from the floor and missed both free throw attempts, but he continued his impressive play in the preseason tonight. He went 6-for-10 at the line which highlights one of the few deficiencies in his fantasy game, but the numbers across the board make up for it.

  • Richaun Holmes
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Richaun Holmes started on Wednesday and scored two points with eight rebounds, two assists and a block.

    Holmes got the starting nod as Dewayne Dedmon (rest) sat this one out. He'll be a great play whenever Dedmon misses time, but he should still be able to scrape out some standard-league value regardless. If you don't know our love for Holmes, you haven't been around enough.

  • Buddy Hield
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Buddy Hield scored 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting with three 3-pointers, six assists and two rebounds in Wednesday's game against Melbourne.

    Hield's six dimes are nice, but the zero on defensive stats is a bummer. If he can expand his game even further in either the assists or defense department, there's a higher ceiling than his current early-mid round value.

  • Harrison Barnes
    SF, Sacramento Kings

    Harrison Barnes finished Wednesday's game with 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting with six rebounds, two assists and a steal.

    Barnes was hot tonight, but his line is exactly why he's not a great fantasy player. Even though he shot well from the floor, he hit zero 3-pointers and was limited in contributions elsewhere. The Kings have a ton of talent so there's no need to give Barnes the ball that much.

  • Cory Joseph
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Cory Joseph (sore calf) says that he's feeling better and expects to be ready for the Kings' season opener.

    Joseph had been dealing with both the calf injury and an illness that apperently has been going around the Kings' locker room. It still seems like he won't get in on preseason action, putting him a tad behind on meshing with his new team. He should really only be a backup PG this year and holds no fantasy value.

  • Hollis Thompson
    SF, Sacramento Kings

    Hollis Thompson will miss Wednesday's game against the Suns due to right hip bursitis.

    Tyler Lydon (right hip inflammation) and Tyler Ulis (right groin strain) will also be held out. None of them are recommended fantasy options at this point.

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Kings guard Bogdan Bogdanovic told the Sacramento Bee that the team has offered him a maximum contract extension, but he is in no hurry to sign it.

    Bogdanovic added that he would prefer to remain in Sacramento, but he could receive more lucrative offers if he waits to become a restricted free agent this summer. The Kings and Bogdanovic can come to an agreement anytime between now and June 30th, but he is eligible only for a $51.4 million extension because he signed a three-year, $27 million contract with the Kings in 2017. His ability to stretch the floor is vital to the uptempo offense most NBA teams run these days, and he is coming off a breakout performance at the 2019 FIBA World Cup, so it make sense for him to wait until he hits the open market next year, in what looks to be a week free agent class.

  • De'Aaron Fox
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    De'Aaron Fox (sore lower back) is expected to sit out of Wednesday's preseason game.

    Fox is looking to get ready for the regular-season opener. With Cory Joseph yet to return, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Yogi Ferrell, and Tyler Ulis will get the lions' share of PG minutes against the Suns.

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 16 points on 6-of-16 shooting with five rebounds, eight assists, a steal, a block and two triples on Monday against the Jazz.

    Bogdanovic put up a solid line and is a great player to have coming off the bench, but this situation means his fantasy value is very limited. The Kings have a plethora of guys that can play and Bogdanovic came off the bench even with Trevor Ariza (DNP-CD) sitting this one out.

  • Richaun Holmes
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Richaun Holmes scored 11 points on 4-of-4 shooting with three boards, two steals and a block in Monday's preseason win over the Jazz.

    Holmes returned to action from a sore groin and looked great out there per usual. He'll most likely stay behind Dewayne Dedmon as he and Bagley don't work out as well due to them both playing inside the paint. His fantasy impact will be stifled as long as the Kings are healthy but there's no doubt that his contributions in reality are going to be well worth the two-year $10 million contract he signed this summer.

  • Buddy Hield
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Buddy Hield scored 23 points on 9-of-17 shooting with three rebounds, five assists, a steal and three triples on Monday against the Jazz.

    Hield continues to sink shots from deep and looks like he'll pick up where he left off from last season. The steals numbers are still going to be a concern, but the efficient scoring and volume of triples are sure to be worth the price of admission on draft day. De'Aaron Fox (14 points on 5-of-11 shooting with two rebounds, four assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer) had a decent night as well and his upside is much higher due to the ability to rack up assist numbers.

  • Marvin Bagley III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Marvin Bagley double-doubled on Monday vs. the Jazz with 22 points and 11 boards to go with a steal, two blocks and two triples.

    He shot 8-for-16 from the floor and a perfect 4-for-4 at the line. Bagley has looked great in the preseason and the Kings signing Dewayne Dedmon (seven points, seven rebounds, two assists, three steals, a block and a 3-pointer) complements Bagley's athletic, slashing playstyle with his floor spacing. Bagley remains the safest big man to own in Sacramento.

  • De'Aaron Fox
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    De'Aaron Fox will not return to Monday's game due to a sore lower back, finishing with 14 points (5-for-11 FGs, 3-for-5 FTs), two boards, four dimes, two swipes, one rejection and one trey in 19 minutes.

    We'll have to wait for an update on this one. Tonight's game is the preseason finale for the Kings, so Fox has a week to rest up for the regular season.

  • Tyler Ulis
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    The Kings are listing Tyler Ulis (right groin strain) as out for Monday's preseason game.

    As the fifth point guard on the depth chart, Ulis has almost no chance of making the final roster. His absence won't change anything for fantasy purposes.

  • Tyler Lydon
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Tyler Lydon (right hip inflammation) and Hollis Thompson (right hip bursitis) have been ruled out of Monday's preseason game against the Jazz.

    Neither Lydon nor Thompson will figure into the rotation when the regular season opens, but they will miss a chance to climb the pecking order tonight. This news has no fantasy impact unless you're playing preseason DFS.
