George Hill played 24 minutes and hit 3-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points, one rebound, four assists and a steal in Tuesday's win over the Thunder.
Hill's averaging just 9.5 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 3-pointers in 23 minutes in his two games with the Cavs, and it's not all that surprising given how much LeBron James handles the ball. Hill's more of a glorified shooting guard on this team than a point guard, but J.R. Smith has been hot in his last two, negatively impacting Hill. Hill is probably still worth owning as long as he's starting for the Cavs, but expectations should probably be tempered, at least as long as Smith (and LeBron) are so hot. Feb 13 - 11:11 PM

De'Aaron Fox tweaked his ankle in Monday's win over the Bulls, but said that he think's he'll "fine" and ready to play on Friday vs. Portland.

Fox tweaked his left ankle going up for a dunk attempt in the second half. He limped to the sideline and was unable to return to the game. Fortunately, X-rays came back negative. Speaking with reporters after the game, Fox downplayed the injury. He'll have three full days to rest and treat the injury. We'll have plenty of updates throughout the week. If Fox is unable to play Friday, George Hill would see an uptick in playing time (assuming Hill isn't moved before Thursday's trade deadline).
Feb 6 - 9:13 AM

Garrett Temple (sprained right ankle) will not play vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

It's unclear when Temple got injured, but the Kings are resting veterans constantly so they're likely to be cautious with even the most minor ailments. Buddy Hield, Bogdan Bogdanovic and George Hill stand to gain some playing time without Temple tonight. His next chance to play comes Tuesday vs. the Pelicans.
Jan 28 - 5:27 PM

Kings coach Dave Joerger said that he will be resting two veterans in every game going forward.

It apparently started on Monday vs. the Thunder, as Zach Randolph and Vince Carter both picked up DNP-CDs without any warning from the coaching staff or reporters. The Kings are going to focus on their younger players going forward, so in addition to Z-Bo and Carter, George Hill, Garrett Temple and Kosta Koufos are going to be constant threats for rest days.
Jan 15 - 10:58 PM

Bogdan Bogdanovic and Skal Labissiere will move into the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Thunder.

De’Aaron Fox, Garrett Temple and Willie Cauley-Stein are also starting, so George Hill and Zach Randolph will head to the bench. Coach Dave Joerger can't make up his mind when it comes to his lineups, so we have no idea if this permanent or just another matchup move. Bogdanovic should be owned in standard leagues, while Labissiere is just a stash for the second half of the season.
Jan 15 - 7:37 PM

An MRI on Frank Mason's right heel revealed a partial tear of the plantar fasciitis tendon, and he will miss 4-6 weeks from his initial injury on Dec. 31.

That leaves Mason with roughly 3-5 more weeks on the sidelines, and it's a tough break for the rookie guard. His absence leaves the PG to be split between De'Aaron Fox and George Hill, both of whom should absorb a handful of extra minutes.
Jan 11 - 2:23 PM

Frank Mason (bruised right heel) won't play vs. the Spurs on Monday.

The Kings said on Jan. 2 that Mason would miss approximately one week, so hopefully we'll get a positive update in the next few days. George Hill (birth of child) is also out on Monday, so De'Aaron Fox should be a lock for 32+ minutes.
Jan 8 - 7:16 PM

Frank Mason (bruised right heel) won't return to Sunday's game.

The Kings' backcourt is already shorthanded without De'Aaron Fox (quad), so hopefully Mason doesn't miss much time with this injury. Sacramento returns to action on Tuesday but is then off until Saturday, so they might sit Mason one game to play it safe and give him nearly a week of rest. We should have an update after practice on Monday.

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.
Wed, Dec 20, 2017 11:52:00 PM

De'Aaron Fox (quad) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

This is not surprising after Fox aggravated the quad issue during Tuesday's game, and for now, we'll be considering him questionable for Saturday's game against the Spurs. George Hill (illness) is expected back tonight, and he could be looking at minutes in the mid-30s with Fox watching from the sidelines. Frank Mason should also pick up some extra minutes with Fox unavailable.
Wed, Dec 20, 2017 12:43:00 PM

Frank Mason scored a career-high 16 points in 22 minutes on Tuesday, making 7-of-9 field goals with two 3-pointers, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

De'Aaron Fox (right quad) started tonight but he didn't return after halftime, and George Hill (illness) was also out tonight, so the spotlight was on Mason. The rookie stepped up in a big way and continues to impress when given opportunities, despite the long shadow cast by lottery-pick Fox. The Kings could turn Mason loose late in the season, but with Fox and Hill both day-to-day, there isn't a ton of short-term upside here.
Tue, Dec 19, 2017 11:12:00 PM

De'Aaron Fox, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Garrett Temple, Willie Cauley-Stein and Zach Randolph will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

Fox should be looking at decent minutes tonight with George Hill (illness) unavailable, so he's someone to think about throwing out there in DFS. Bogdanovic and Randolph figure to do the heavy lifting on offense, and both those guys can also be considered as DFS dart throws.
Tue, Dec 19, 2017 06:42:00 PM

De'Aaron Fox (right quad) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Sixers.

Fox injured his quad last Thursday and was unable to play Sunday vs. the Raptors. However, he was a full participant in Monday's practice and is expected to return to the game action Tuesday evening. With George Hill (illness) ruled out, Fox will likely start and should log plenty of playing time, as long as he is healthy enough to handle it.
Tue, Dec 19, 2017 12:31:00 PM

Vince Carter will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Raptors.

Both De'Aaron Fox (quad) and Zach Randolph (rest) are out today, so Carter will earn his first start in a Sacramento uniform and he'll be joined by George Hill, Garrett Temple, Willie Cauley-Stein and Kosta Koufos. Still, even as a starter, it's hard to consider the 40-year-old as anything more than a low-end punt play in DFS.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 03:06:00 PM

Bogdan Bogdanovic filled in for George Hill (personal) on Sunday and scored 15 points in 30 minutes of action, making 5-of-10 shots with four 3-pointers.

The Kings rookie had a hollow line, however, adding just one rebound and one assist without any defensive stats. He's shooting with solid percentages this season (44.0% FGs, 83.9% FTs) and is typically a reliable source of steals (1.2 per game), so give him a look if Hill isn't ready to play vs. Phoenix on Tuesday.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 06:56:00 PM

De'Aaron Fox, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Garrett Temple, Skal Labissiere and Zach Randolph will start against the Raptors on Sunday.

With George Hill (personal) out, Bogdanovic will be returning to the starting five, although he's played better with the reserves this season so the starter tag doesn't necessarily equate to a boost in value. He's basically just a low-end option in deep leagues for those seeking some triples and steals.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 03:12:00 PM

Frank Mason stepped up for the Kings on Wednesday with 15 points, three steals, two assists, two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes off the bench.

George Hill and De'Aaron Fox did check in for the final 4:38 of a tied game, with Mason heading back to the bench, but he was very aggressive while on the court. Until he's averaging minutes north of 20 per game, though, he'll have a hard time being more than a DFS gamble.
Wed, Dec 6, 2017 09:53:00 PM

Vince Carter (illness) practiced on Tuesday and said he was "ready to get back on the court."

Carter has missed each of the Kings last seven games due to complications from kidney stones. However, it appears he will make his return Wednesday when the Kings host the Lakers. Buddy Hield (ankle) was also able to practice on Tuesday. If both Carter and Hield return on Wednesday, they'll cut into the playing time of Garrett Temple, George Hill, and Bogdan Bogdanovic
Tue, Nov 21, 2017 05:26:00 PM

De'Aaron Fox scored a team-high 18 points off the bench on Tuesday, hitting 9-of-18 shots with five assists, four rebounds, one steal and just one turnover in 28 minutes.

The Kings were crushed on the road tonight and it's hard to read into this game, given that nobody played more than 28 minutes for either team. Fox started on Sunday game with George Hill resting, but lasted only 26 minutes and seemed to force the issue, so it was nice to see him settle back into his game tonight. It's a matter of time before he breaks loose.
Tue, Oct 31, 2017 10:11:00 PM

Frank Mason III got some run on Sunday, posting 11 points, one assist and one steal in 22 minutes off Sacramento's bench.

The second-round pick moved up in the rotation because George Hill was resting tonight. He could establish a reliable role as the season progresses, as the Kings will emphasize player development, but for now there's no reason to touch him.
Sun, Oct 29, 2017 09:06:00 PM

De'Aaron Fox struggled in his first NBA start on Sunday, shooting 1-of-8 from the field for two points, five assists, four rebounds and four turnovers in 26 minutes.

Fox didn't have any defensive stats and he didn't get to the FT line once tonight, as John Wall and the Wizards got whatever they wanted at both ends. The good news is that George Hill was rested tonight, even though it wasn't a back-to-back situation and the Kings were playing just their sixth game of the season. Fox is the future of the backcourt and he already boasts the highest usage rate on the team (27.2), edging out Buddy Hield (26.3), so owners shouldn't overreact to tonight's dud.
