Chimezie Metu News
Sacramento Kings power forward/center Chimezie Metu (back) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game versus Oklahoma City due to a sore back. Metu hasn't suited up since last Friday, giving Marvin Bagley III unabated minutes at the power forward slot. Averaging just 5.3 points and 2.6 boards this season, Metu hasn't cracked the Sacramento rotation with enough frequency to be viewed as a season-long option in any sized format. His next opportunity to take the floor comes Wednesday against the Pacers.
Sacramento Kings forward Chimezie Metu (back) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against Oklahoma City. The 24-year-old didn't suit up on Sunday against the Dallas Mavericks due to lower back tightness. With Harrison Barnes (hip) doubtful, Marvin Bagley III could see plenty of action once again.
Sacramento Kings forward Harrison Barnes (groin) and center Chimezie Metu (back) have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dallas Mavericks. Barnes has been banged up lately, which has been resulting in more playing time for Metu. The Kings are shorthanded here with both of them sidelined on Sunday. Marvin Bagley III and Delon Wright should see more minutes coming their way. Bagley could have sneaky streaming appeal and a decent DFS option with extended playing time.
The San Antonio Spurs have selected Chimezie Metu with the 49th pick of the 2018 NBA Draft. The power forward comes from USC and earned All Pac-12 first-team honors in college. He averaged 15.7 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.7 blocks per game in his final year in California. Expect him to be on the summer league roster of the Spurs in two weeks time.
