Arron Afflalo started the second half on Wednesday and finished with 15 points (5-of-8 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), three 3-pointers, one rebound and one assist in 31 minutes.
Afflalo is averaging 17.0 points on 68.4 percent shooting in his past two games, but you'll forgive us for being skeptical. The veteran came in scoring 7.7 points per game, his lowest mark since 2008-09 with the Pistons. He failed to provide 12-team value over the past two seasons, despite logging 32+ minutes per game, and there's no reason to expect his minutes to be that robust this year. Leave him on the wire.

Date:

Arron Afflalo (right elbow) returned from a three-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets and scored a season-high 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two triples in 30 minutes.

Both Afflalo and Kosta Koufos played several seasons in Denver, so they got some revenge tonight and combined for 37 points on 16-of-20 shooting. Afflalo was averaging 7.2 points per game prior to Tuesday and he did this with Rudy Gay (hip) out, so fantasy owners can continue to ignore him.
Jan 4 - 1:02 AM

Arron Afflalo (right elbow) is probable to play Tuesday vs. the Nuggets.

The elbow injury has forced Afflalo to spend the past three games on the sidelines, but it looks like he'll be back in action tonight. Afflalo's playing time in Sacramento has been random, and he's just not doing enough on a consistent basis to warrant a roster spot in most leagues. The Kings don't update probable players, so expect him to be out there.
Jan 3 - 3:45 PM

Arron Afflalo (right elbow strain) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Afflalo has missed each of the Kings last three games due to the elbow injury. Afflalo had done little to secure consistent playing time even when he was 100 percent healthy this season, so will likely have a limited role when he does return to the lineup. Ben McLemore, Matt Barnes, Garrett Temple and even rookie Malachi Richardson are all competing for minutes on the wing in Sacramento.

Arron Afflalo (elbow) has been ruled out for Saturday's game vs. Memphis.

This will be the third straight game Afflalo has missed due to the elbow injury. Ben McLemore will likely draw another start, but Garrett Temple is the biggest beneficiary, as he has been playing more minutes that McLemore off the Kings bench. Afflalo's disappointing season shows no solid signs of improving. He can be left on waiver wires.

Arron Afflalo (elbow) is doubtful for Saturday's game vs. Memphis.

Rudy Gay (hip) is also doubtful. Afflalo shouldn't be owned in fantasy leagues anyways, but his absence opens the door for Garrett Temple to log heavy minutes on the wings.

Arron Afflalo (elbow) will not play against the Blazers on Wednesday.

He was back in the rotation before his injury and was actually playing well. With Afflalo out tonight, we should see plenty of Garrett Temple backing up Ben McLemore. Temple is an interesting cheap play in DFS.

Arron Afflalo (right elbow sprain) will not play on Monday vs. the 76ers.

Afflalo has played 27.0 minutes per game over his last three, so expect Garrett Temple, Ben McLemore and Omri Casspi (illness) to pick up a few extra minutes. Afflalo belongs on the wire in most leagues.

Arron Afflalo (right elbow sprain) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the 76ers.

This is the first we are hearing of an elbow injury, but a matchup with the 76ers seems like the appropriate time to rest. If Afflalo sits, Ben McLemore and Garrett Temple will find themselves with a few more minutes. Afflalo is not a fantasy asset.
Mon, Dec 26, 2016 05:48:00 PM

Arron Afflalo said that the recent report of him refusing to enter a game was not true.

Head coach Dave Joerger did not want to talk about it following Tuesday's win over Portland, but Afflalo did get on the court for 31 minutes on Tuesday night, finishing the game with 11 points, one board, one assist, one 3-pointer and two turnovers. It'll be interesting to see what his minutes look like Wednesday vs. Utah, but even when he's earning minutes in the 30s, he's not worth owning in most leagues.

Arron Afflalo picked up a DNP-CD vs. Dallas on Sunday.

The veteran reportedly "declined to enter [the game]" during Wednesday's game in Houston, after being "slow to enter" two games earlier vs. the Jazz. This isn't a good look for Afflalo or the Kings, and it wouldn't be surprising to hear his name surface in trade rumors. He's not a fantasy asset.

Arron Afflalo picked up his second straight DNP-CD on Friday.

No revenge game for Mr. Afflalo against the Knicks. Even with Matt Barnes (rest) out, Afflalo was still a DNP-CD. Ouch.
Sat, Dec 10, 2016 01:18:00 AM

Arron Afflalo moved to the bench and was a DNP-CD on Wednesday.

OK then. Afflalo is only signed on a two-year deal, so the Kings may not view him as a piece going forward. He may get back in the rotation at some point, but his upside is very low.
Thu, Dec 8, 2016 12:01:00 AM

Arron Afflalo will head back to the Kings bench on Wednesday.

Ben McLemore will take his spot with the starters, and this demotion is nothing new for Afflalo. He has no fantasy appeal outside of very deep leagues.
Wed, Dec 7, 2016 08:33:00 PM

Arron Afflalo started on Monday and hit just 1-of-6 shots for three points, one rebound and one assist.

He has scored eight or fewer points in six of his last seven games and simply isn't getting it done. The Kings would likely have a few more wins if they could find a reliable shooting guard, but that's been an issue for them ever since Ben McLemore arrived on the scene. McLemore didn't even play tonight, while Omri Casspi, Garrett Temple and Matt Barnes were also highly ineffective.
