Garrett Temple    G  Kings

 

 

Garrett Temple hit 8-of-13 shots and a career-high six 3-pointers to tie his career high of 23 points with two rebounds and one assist off the bench in Monday's loss to the Suns. The Kings rolled with their bench after falling behind and nearly everyone on it went off tonight, including Temple. His previous season high was eight points and other than stealing the ball, he hadn't been at all impressive coming into this game. But he was great tonight and may have earned some more minutes going forward. But with Buddy Hield and Bogdan Bogdanovic in front of him on the depth chart, there's no reason to get too excited about Temple right now.

Bogdan Bogdanovic    G  Kings

 

 

Bogdan Bogdanovic (ankle) made his NBA debut, played 25 minutes off the Kings' bench and hit 5-of-15 shots for 12 points, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in Monday's loss to the Suns. The Suns went up big in the first half and the Kings rolled with their bench the rest of the way, allowing guys like Bogdanovic, Skal Labissiere, Garrett Temple and De'Aaaron Fox to post some big numbers. Bogdanovic isn't likely to steal Buddy Hield's job or even take many of his minutes, but he did turn some heads and likely earned more playing time going forward. He's a deep league pickup and could also be added in 12-team leagues if they run deep, although tonight could have been a fluke based on the way the game unfolded.

He's a deep league pickup and could also be added in 12-team leagues if they run deep. Hield still has a grip on the starting job, but it's not crazy to think that Bogdanovic could be the Kings' best wing player after Christmas. Just keep in mind that the Kings ditched their starters and the subs led a furious comeback, which isn't likely to happen on most nights.

De'Aaron Fox    G  Kings

 

 

Rookie PG De'Aaron Fox came off the bench for 30 minutes on Monday and hit 7-of-16 shots and 5-of-6 free throws for a career-high 19 points, five rebounds, four assists and three steals in a tough loss to the Suns. Wow. George Hill was dreadful for the second straight game, the Suns were up big and the Kings just rolled with their bench for much of the second half. Fox was great tonight and while he likely hasn't taken over the starting job from Hill, he's certainly applying some pressure. We're probably looking at a true timeshare going forward and it's time that Fox is owned in all leagues. If you need a point guard and recently picked up a guy like Jerryd Bayless, go get him.

Skal Labissiere    F/C  Kings

 

 

Skal Labissiere played 28 minutes off the bench and hit 6-of-10 shots for a season-high 17 points, four rebounds and a block. He also hit all five of his free throws. The Kings fell behind the Suns early and ran with their second unit for most of the second half. They waged an impressive comeback that fell short, but Labissiere turned some heads in this one. Zach Randolph is still the starter, but Skal is averaging 15 points, 4.0 boards, 1.0 steals, 1.0 blocks over his last two games. He's not a must-own player yet, but if you need a big man, now is probably a good time to scoop him up.

Buddy Hield    G  Kings

 

 

Buddy Hield played just 17 minutes on Monday but still hit 6-of-15 shots and a 3-pointer for 14 points and five steals in a tough loss to the Suns. The Kings fell behind the Suns early and they went with their bench for most of the second half, and they almost pulled off a comeback win. Hield should be fine and the low minutes appear to be a fluke. And this solid low-minutes line was nice to see after he hit 1-of-10 shots for three points on Saturday. Just hold onto him and monitor the situation.

George Hill    G  Kings

 

 

George Hill struggled on Monday, missing all five of his shots and finishing with two points, , four assists and two steals in 25 minutes. The Kings turned to rookie De'Aaron Fox after falling behind to the lowly Suns, and Fox went off for 19 points, five boards, four assists and three steals. This was only one game and Hill played well in his first two games of the season. But he's been awful in his last two, hitting 1-of-10 shots for a total of six points and five dimes. We're not ready to close the book on Hill just yet, but the rise of Fox is real and we could be facing a full timeshare just four games into the season. Fox is going to be a very hot pickup, for good reason, but it's probably too soon to drop Hill. Give him another game or two and see if he bounces back.

Zach Randolph    F/C  Kings

 

 

Zach Randolph played just 15 minutes, missed all four of his shots and failed to score against the Suns on Monday. He's back from oral surgery, but the Kings were down big to the Suns, Randolph was in foul trouble and they rolled with Skal Labissiere (28 minutes) and Kosta Koufos (22 minutes) tonight as they waged a comeback. Z-Bo's NBA career is winding down, while Labissiere's is just getting started. Randolph will bounce back and could continue to start for the Kings, but Labissiere has the upside and is probably a better player to own at this point.

Bogdan Bogdanovic    G  Kings

 

 

Bogdanovic (ankle) will play Monday against the Suns.

Visiblement, personne chez les Kings n'a vu venir ce grand classique des joueurs déchainés après un coach limogé. 17-4 encaissé d'entrée.
