Kosta Koufos    F/C  Kings

 

 

Koufos supplied 14 points (7-8 FG), 14 rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block across 25 minutes in Thursday's 121-115 loss to the Clippers. The veteran center has gotten the new calendar year to a strong start, as he's now posted three double-digit scoring efforts over five games on his way to averages of 10.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.6 steals across 20.4 minutes. Koufos has also been a force on the boards over the last two contests in particular, averaging 14.5 rebounds during that span. The 28-year-old's minutes have been at 21 or greater in three of his past four games, and Koufos always has the potential for turning in above-average scoring and rebounding production when receiving that allotment of playing time.

Kosta Koufos came off the bench and hit 7-of-8 shots for 14 points, 14 rebounds, two steals and a block in 25 minutes of Thursday's loss to the Clippers. He had six points, 15 rebounds and three steals in his previous game and is suddenly hot, averaging 10 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.6 steals while shooting 72 percent from the floor over his last five. He's getting all of the backup center minutes for the Kings right now, so just keep an eye on him in case he's going to start racking up double-digit rebounds on a nightly basis. Prior to his last two games, the last time he had double figures in boards was back on Nov. 11.

Kosta Koufos came off the bench for six points, a season-high 15 rebounds, two assists and three steals in 21 minutes on Tuesday. Not only was this one of his best games in recent memory, but it was his first double-digit rebound game since Nov. 11. Koufos would need for Willie Cauley-Stein to go down with an injury to have any real fantasy value, but he does have six steals in his last three games.

Koufos accounted for 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and two steals across 23 minutes in Saturday's 106-98 win over the Nuggets. The veteran has consecutive double-digit scoring efforts since returning to the bench after starting the New Year's Eve tilt against the Hornets. Koufos has shot 10-for-14 in those contests and continues to serve as a consistent source of boards irrespective of whether he's on the starting five or second unit. Factoring in Saturday's production, he's averaging a solid 5.6 rebounds across a modest 18.2 minutes over 37 games.

Kosta Koufos went for 12 points, seven rebounds and two steals with an assist across 23 minutes off the bench on Saturday against the Nuggets. Koufos hit 5-of-8 from the field and he was a perfect 2-of-2 from the free-throw line and he did not have any turnovers. It's the first time this season Koufos has recorded back-to-back games with double-digit scoring totals. He has hit 10-of-14 (71.4 percent) from the field over the past two games, but it will take a lot more games like this before fantasy owners can trust him on a regular basis.

Koufos will come off the bench for Tuesday's tilt against the Hornets, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports. Koufos drew a start for Sunday's loss to the Grizzlies, but only saw 10 minutes on the court. The Kings shift their starting lineups on a night-to-night basis, so it is somwhat hard to find a rhyme or reason to their logic. Still, Koufos averages 13.9 minutes per game as a starter compared to 18.7 as a reserve, so he figures to see a heavier workload Tuesday.

In 10 minutes as a starter on Sunday, Kosta Koufos went scoreless on 0-of-4 shooting with five rebounds, one assist and one steal. Kings coach Dave Joerger opted for more size vs. the Grizzlies tonight, using Koufos alongside Zach Randolph in the frontcourt. It didn't go well. The veteran hasn't been a fantasy asset this season and it would take a few injured teammates for him to become relevant.

Koufos will start at center Sunday against the Grizzlies, Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee reports. Koufos will draw the start as the Kings continue to go with a carousal of starters in their frontcourt. The big man is averaging 5.2 points and 5.7 rebounds across 18.4 minutes so far this season.

The Kings won consecutive games for the second time all season on Wednesday, aided by Kosta Koufos' 12 points, eight rebounds, one steal and one block in 21 minutes off the bench. The Kings will inevitably lean into the youth movement as the season progresses, but tonight it was the veterans who did the most damage. George Hill scored 22 points on nine FG attempts, Zach Randolph added 21 points on 8-of-11 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs, and Koufos anchored the second unit with all of his makes coming within 10 feet of the hoop. This was his second-highest scoring game of the season, however, and we're not expecting a repeat performance any time soon.

Kosta Koufos picked up a DNP-CD vs. the Sixers on Tuesday. Koufos started Sunday's game in place of Zach Randolph (rest), and this may have simply been a maintenance day. For fantasy purposes, the veteran center is more of a thorn in the side of Willie Cauley-Stein than an asset in his own right. Leave him on the wire.
