Sacramento Kings Roster
- Western Pacific
- Golden 1 Center
Sacramento Kings guard Kent Bazemore (calf) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Kings have been eliminated from the postseason, so they have no incentive to play Bazemore at less than 100 percent. Daquan Jeffries should see significant playing time, so he could be a low-cost DFS option for Thursday's slate.
Sacramento Kings power forward Nemanja Bjelica played a heavy 33 minutes and made the most of his time by filling up the box score in the six-point win over the Pelicans on Tuesday. Bjelica scored 13 points while adding five rebounds with two assists and two steals with a block. We know when the Serbian gets the minutes he will produce and this could be a similar case on Thursday in the meaningless season-ending game against the Lakers. Thursday is going to be a wild one in the DFS world but put Bjelica on your watchlist as we could see similar production from the big man.
Sacramento Kings forward Harrison Barnes took on the extra workload with De'Aaron Fox sitting out this one. Barnes connected on 9-for-19 shooting en route to 25 points and added eight boards with two assists and two blocks without committing a single turnover in 37 minutes in the win over the Pelicans. We can assume Barnes will take on a similar role on Thursday in his club's season finale against the Lakers - add him to your watchlist, especially if the Kings decide to rest some players once again.
Sacramento Kings power forward/center Harry Giles recorded his first double-double since February 22nd in the win over the Pelicans on Tuesday. Giles was not so efficient from the floor as he connected on just 6-for-17 shooting, but he still managed to record 12 points while gathering 11 boards with three assists to go along with two blocks in 25 minutes of action. The Kings' last game is on Thursday against the Lakers and we can assume he will get some solid minutes in that game, making him worth a look as a cheap punt play.
Sacramento Kings guard De'Aaron Fox (shoulder) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans. The Kings have already been eliminated, so their focus is getting through the bubble without any new injuries. Cory Joseph and Yogi Ferrell are expected to split up the minutes at point guard. Buddy Hield and Bogdan Bogdanovic could see a few more minutes and will have increased usage.
