Kosta Koufos    C  Kings

 

 

Kosta Koufos (illness) returned to action Saturday against the Lakers and he finished with six points across 14 minutes. Koufos also was able to gather five rebounds with a plus-10 rating, and he finished 3-of-5 from the field, but he did not offer any other offensive or defensive statistics. If you normally rely upon him in deeper fantasy leagues it appears safe to get back into the active lineup, especially in cumulative formats with a five-game week starting on Monday.

Buddy Hield    G  Kings

 

 

Buddy Hield went for 21 points across 31 minutes off the bench in Saturday's victory against the Lakers. Hield hit 8-of-17 from the field, including 5-of-10 from behind the 3-point line, and he added eight rebounds with an assist and just three turnovers. He, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Willie Cauley-Stein took their games to another level on Saturday, but not many of their teammates joined them for the ride. Hield is averaging 20.0 PPG, 8.5 RPG and 2.5 APG over the past two outings since the All-Star break.

De'Aaron Fox    G  Kings

 

 

De'Aaron Fox (eye) posted 13 points with six assists and a steal over 30 minutes in Saturday's game against the Lakers. Fox came down with pink eye last Saturday in Los Angeles, and by Sunday morning it had moved to both eyes. His eyes are still blood shot, but he was feeling much better and able to make it through the entire game against the Lakers without any issue. He'll be good to go for the upcoming week, and the Kings have a rare five-game schedule on top starting on Monday against Minnesota.

Willie Cauley-Stein    C  Kings

 

 

Willie Cauley-Stein ended up with 18 points, 15 rebounds, two steals, two blocked shots and an assist over 37 minutes in Saturday's 113-108 loss to the Lakers. Cauley-Stein, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Buddy Hield brought their 'A' games for Saturday's home game, but the rest of the team didn't seem to get the memo that this was a winnable game against the rivals from the south. The 15 boards were a season high, and his most since he snagged 16 boards April 4 against the Mavericks.

Justin Jackson    F  Kings

 

 

Justin Jackson finished Saturday's 113-108 loss against the Lakers with no points across 14 minutes. Jackson was 0-of-2 from the floor and he added just one rebound with a minus-11 rating. It wasn't like Skal Labissiere was lighting it up off the bench, but at least he was somewhat effective at the defensive end and that limited Jackson's playing time considerably. Even as a starter, Jackson's only worth using in deeper fantasy leagues.

Isaiah Thomas    G  Lakers

 

 

Isaiah Thomas went for 17 points off the bench across 23 minutes in Saturday's 113-108 win at Sacramento. Thomas hit 4-of-11 from the field, including 3-of-7 from behind the 3-point line, while added four assists, two rebounds and just two turnovers. He is still getting used to his teammates and his role off the bench with his new club. He'll likely get better as time goes by, and he'll play plenty of minutes when Lonzo Ball (knee) needs to take a break in-game or needs a night off.

Brook Lopez    C  Lakers

 

 

Brook Lopez finished Saturday's 113-108 victory at Sacramento with four blocked shots over 24 minutes. Lopez also added 11 points on 5-of-12 shooting while grabbing two rebounds and a steal, but the swats were definitely the highlight of the night for fantasy owners. It was just the second time he has hit double digits in points across the past six outings dating back to Feb. 6. Lopez is fighting to hold off Ivica Zubac for playing time in the middle. His minutes should remain in the 20s, so he continues to be a fantasy asset in most leagues.
