Sacramento Kings Roster
- Western Pacific
- Golden 1 Center
Sacramento Kings guard/forward Chris Duarte (knee) has received a questionable tag for Friday's contest against the Phoenix Suns. The 26-year-old has missed the last two games due to left knee soreness and he possibly could miss a third. Since this game was added as a consolation from the in-season tournament, the start time is 11:00 PM EST. Fantasy managers who are trying to decide on Duarte may want to go with the backup plan since we won't know his status until closer to tipoff. If he doesn't suit up, Keon Ellis and Sasha Vezenkov will get some extra minutes off of the bench.
Sacramento Kings forward/center Domantas Sabonis posted his second triple-double of the season in Monday's 127-117 loss to New Orleans in the in-season tournament quarterfinals. He joined Nikola Jokic and Luka Doncic as the only players with more than one triple-double this season by getting 26 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists. Sabonis shot 8-for-12 from the field and 10-for-10 at the line while impacting the proceedings on the defensive end with two steals and a block. The Gonzaga product is one of the most versatile big men in the game, and Sabonis has averaged 19.0 points with 11.9 rebounds and 7.1 assists this season.
Sacramento Kings guard Davion Mitchell (illness) is available for Monday's meeting with New Orleans. He was out on Saturday against Denver with an illness but has recovered from the bug and isn't on the injury report anymore. The third-year player from Baylor has averaged 5.1 points and 2.6 assists for the season in 16.9 minutes. He's had a couple of strong outings, but the Kings use Mitchell mainly as a good defensive presence, and he isn't very productive from a fantasy perspective.
Sacramento Kings guard Chris Duarte (knee) is considered questionable for their in-season tournament game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday night. The young wing was forced to miss their last game on Saturday with the same left knee soreness, but he may have received that game off to get some more rest for the knockout stage of the tournament. Since Keegan Murray has returned, however, Duarte has taken a big hit to his fantasy value. If he can't play, Sasha Vezenkov will see some more opportunities.
Sacramento Kings forward Trey Lyles (ankle) won't suit up for Saturday's matchup with the Nuggets. It's unknown how severe the injury is. However, considering the 28-year-old is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, he could be on the shelf for an extended period. Fortunately, Keegan Murray (pelvis) has a chance to return, which would help fill some of the minutes. But Lyles' absence should also mean more work for Sasha Vezenkov, who had 13 points and five rebounds the other night against the Los Angeles Clippers.
