Sacramento Kings guard Arron Afflalo and center Kosta Koufos will rest against the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday. What It Means: The Kings are playing on the front half of a back to back but they are also blatantly tanking with all of their resting lately. Willie Cauley-Stein and Georgios Papagiannis should have some added value on Sunday without Koufos in the game, while Buddy Hield should get some more run without Afflalo. Our models project Cauley-Stein for 12.2 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.1 blocks over 29.4 minutes per game against the Clippers....

Sacramento Kings guard/forward Arron Afflalo (personal) will start on Wednesday, sending Garrett Temple to the bench. What It Means: The Kings' rotations are perpetually in flux, and tonight it'll be Afflalo getting the nod against Milwaukee. He's done nothing this season to encourage owners to pick him up. Despite our models projecting a strong 25.6 minutes for Afflalo tonight, we peg him for just 8.7 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 1.2 assists. Source: Rotoworld.com

NBA cracks down on teams resting stars

NBA cracks down on teams resting stars

Will there be unintended consequences for the Kings? The NBA is cracking down on teams resting stars. In a recent memo, league commissioner Adam Silver threatened teams with “significant penalties” for resting stars without giving the league appropriate notice. This probably won’t be much of an issue for the Sacramento Kings (I doubt the league cares if the Kings rest Arron Afflalo or Kosta Koufos on any given night), but it may still have some unintended consequences. First, it’s worth noting that the league will face unintended consequences regardless of how they handle the...

Kings rule out Tyreke Evans (ankle), Arron Afflalo (personal) and Ben McLemore (personal)

Sacramento Kings guards Tyreke Evans (ankle), Arron Afflalo (personal) and Ben McLemore (personal) have all been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. What It Means: Evans played only 14 minutes while dealing with an ankle injury on Wednesday, and with the Kings having nothing to play for, it's not surprising that they're being cautious with the oft-injured guard. Look for Darren Collison, Buddy Hield and Ty Lawson to all see bumps in both playing time and usage with this trio out tonight. Our models project Collison for 12.6 points, 4.2 assists, 2.1...
Magic outlasted by skeleton crew Kings squad 120-115

Magic outlasted by skeleton crew Kings squad 120-115

The first stop of the West Coast road trip would not be kind to the Magic, as they lost a heartbreaker to the Kings. When the season started, both Orlando and Sacramento were rising teams centered around franchise big men. Now, in mid-March, neither has that supposed franchise centerpiece on their roster, and both are firmly out of the playoff hunt. With the Kings resting point guard Ty Lawson, small forward Tyreke Evans, former Magic man Arron Afflalo, and big man Kosta Koufos, it seemed to be an easy win in the bag for the Magic. The Kings, however, would have other plans. It all...

Kings conjure up a win and beat Magic 120-115

The Kings came together as a team and ended their 8 game losing streak. With the Orlando Magic coming to town, the Kings seemingly pulled out all the stops to try to drive this tank forward. Shortly before the game, it was announced that the Kings would be resting Kosta Koufos, Arron Afflalo, Tyreke Evans and Ty Lawson, leaving the Kings with a rotation of just 9 available players. Nobody gave those guys the memo though, because they played some well rounded team basketball to end their losing streak at eight and win just their second game since the DeMarcus Cousins trade. Seven Kings...

Kings resting four players on Monday versus Orlando

The Sacramento Kings will be without guard/forward Tyreke Evans (sore left ankle), guards Ty Lawson (rest) and Arron Afflalo (rest), plus center Kosta Koufos (rest) on Monday versus the Orlando Magic. What It Means: With the Kings resting four of their significant contributors, expect Buddy Hield, Darren Collison, and Willie Cauley-Stein to have to pick up most of the slack on Monday. All four resting players are expected back on Wednesday versus the Phoenix Suns. Evans has averaged 15.2 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.4 assists in the seven games he has played in a Kings'...

Kings 104, Spurs 114: Tank You Very Much

Sacramento blows a huge lead in San Antonio. The King sure like to tank in the weirdest of ways. After an overtime loss to the Jazz and hanging around with the Nuggets, Sacramento decided to make things exciting for a half before being thoroughly dismantled in the third and fourth quarters. Dave Joerger’s veteran starting crew of Darren Collison, Arron Afflalo, Tyreke Evans, Anthony Tolliver, and Kosta Koufos jumped out to a huge first quarter lead of 37-15 behind ‘Reke’s throwback 13 points on 5 shots and Kosta’s always-steady 10 points. The Spurs struggled to find any offense...

NBA confirms the officials messed up on crucial 5 seconds call

NBA confirms the officials messed up on crucial 5 seconds call

The NBA’s Last Two Minute report confirms that the refs blew the whistle early on a crucial 5 seconds inbounding violation in last night’s Kings game. After last night’s tough loss to the Utah Jazz, there was a lot of vitriol being directed at the officials for their performance down the stretch. In particular, Kings fans were incensed when veteran official Ken Mauer called a 5 second inbounding violation on Sacramento instead of granting Arron Afflalo a timeout. Mauer seemed to count a very quick five seconds, but unfortunately none of that was reviewable and it cost the Kings a...

Crunch time got weird, Kings fall to Jazz 110-109

A loss is a win. Coming off the heels of three-straight losses in which the Sacramento Kings looked like a roster that had just gone through a gigantic mid-season overhaul, Dave Joerger went back to five OG Kings to start off tonights matchup with the Jazz. Darren Collison, Ty Lawson, Arron Afflalo, Willie Cauley-Stein, and Kosta Koufos, to be exact. Oddly enough, the Kings looked like a coherent basketball team again! The OG Kings got off to a very solid start. I wouldn’t say the offense was humming, but it looked far more deliberate than it had in those three previous losses. The...

Kings list Arron Afflalo (hamstring) as probable for Wednesday

Sacramento Kings guard/forward Arron Afflalo (hamstring) is probable for Wednesday's meeting with the Brooklyn Nets. What It Means: A hamstring injury has sidelined Afflalo for three straight games, but it looks like he will return to the lineup tonight, potentially cutting into Ben McLemore and Buddy Hield's minutes a little bit. Our models project Afflalo for only 5.3 points and 1.3 rebounds in 15.4 minutes of action tonight. Source: Rotoworld.com
