Arron Afflalo didn't play in Wednesday's season opener vs. the Heat.
Afflalo had a back issue earlier in October, but this looks more like a DNP-CD. Marreese Speights was also a DNP tonight and neither veteran is likely to have a big on-court impact for a Magic squad that's developing their young guys. Oct 19 - 12:39 AM

Date:

Arron Afflalo (back) returned to practice on Tuesday.

Afflalo has been dealing with back issues that have kept him off the court for the past several days, but it seems as though he's on the mend. As for fantasy hoops, Afflalo is not someone we'd recommend targeting in most leagues.
Oct 3 - 7:03 PM

Arron Afflalo (back) will not suit up for Monday's preseason game against Memphis.

Afflalo is dealing with some back issues, but he's expected to practice on Tuesday, so this seems relatively minor. As for fantasy hoops, Afflalo's minutes will likely be in the low-20s on most nights, so he won't see enough floor time to make an impact in most leagues.
Oct 2 - 6:45 PM

Arron Afflalo has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Magic.

Afflalo actually had some of his best statistical seasons wearing an Orlando jersey, but don't expect him to replicate his success from his 2013-14 campaign during the 2017-18 season. Afflalo will likely serve in a sixth man-like role, backing up Evan Fournier and Terrence Ross, but his minutes will likely be in the 20s on most nights which won't be enough floor time for him to make a difference in most leagues. The arrival of Afflalo and Jonathon Simmons isn't great news for Mario Hezonja.

The Kings are releasing Arron Afflalo.

The Kings added some really nice perimeter depth on Thursday with De'Aaron Fox, Justin Jackson and Frank Mason. Plus, they could also be adding Bogdan Bogdanovic for next year, so they may have several new pieces to their backcourt compared to the start of the 2016-17 season. As for Afflalo, he is still 31 and he may be looking to join a contender next year.
Jun 23 - 4:53 PM

Arron Afflalo scored 18 points with two rebounds, six assists and no turnovers in 34 minutes against the Clippers on Wednesday.

With his contract not guaranteed for next year, the Kings may not be bringing Afflalo back. He's still just 31 years old and showed he can still play, despite how his mid-range style isn't exactly en vogue these days.
Apr 13 - 1:03 AM

Arron Afflalo is not on the injury report for Wednesday against the Clippers.

Who even knows what the Kings are doing anymore? Afflalo should be getting minutes, but it's very tough to trust him in fantasy with the late start tonight.
Apr 12 - 5:31 PM

Arron Afflalo (rest) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Suns.

Afflalo has appeared in just two of the Kings last eight games. The Kings are embracing the tank and have been leaning on their youngsters for the most of the last month.
Apr 11 - 6:01 PM

Arron Afflalo will rest on Sunday vs. the Rockets.

Most of the veterans in Sacramento will get another day at the spa with the Kings in tank mode. Leave Afflalo on the wire and expect him to miss at least one more game on Tuesday vs. the Suns or Wednesday vs. the Clippers. He's going to be well rested heading into free agency -- his deal for next season is a non-guaranteed $12.5 million.
Apr 9 - 1:37 PM

Arron Afflalo (back) played 19 minutes vs. the Lakers on Friday and scored two points with two rebounds and one assist.

Your fantasy team is probably in rough shape if you're deploying Afflalo. He could be rested on Sunday vs. the Rockets, so there's no reason why he should be owned right now.
Apr 8 - 1:44 AM

Arron Afflalo (back) is probable to play against the Lakers on Friday.

He missed Tuesday due to a recent back injury, but Afflalo also didn't play in a four-game stretch for personal reasons in late March and early April. He did play 25 minutes on Saturday with 16 points, so he could wind up turning in some stats. He's still not someone to trust due to the youth movement.
Apr 7 - 4:43 PM

Arron Afflalo (back), Kosta Koufos (rest) and Anthony Tolliver (hip) will not play Tuesday vs. Dallas.

Afflalo just got back from a four-game stint on the sidelines due to a personal issue, and apparently his back flared up after logging 25 minutes on Saturday. He's not worth a roster spot in any setting, and his absence will open up minutes for Ben McLemore and Buddy Hield. With Koufos and Tolliver out, Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis should see a good amount of minutes.

Arron Afflalo returned to the Kings lineup on Saturday vs. the Wolves, scoring 16 points on 5-of-9 shooting with two rebounds, two assists and four triples in 25 minutes.

He's been in and out of the lineup with the Kings tanking, appearing in just three out of the last eight games. This was a nice game from Afflalo, but those have been few and far between this season. Look elsewhere if you need a pickup.
Apr 1 - 11:00 PM

Arron Afflalo (personal) is back with the Kings and will be available to play Saturday vs. Minnesota.

Afflalo has started each of the last 25 games he's appeared in for Sacramento, so we can expect him to get the starting nod on Saturday as well. He is averaging 9.4 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists over those 25 contests. Thus, even when active, he's not worth owning in most leagues.
Apr 1 - 2:00 PM

Arron Afflalo (personal), Kosta Koufos (rest) and Anthony Tolliver (rest) have all been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Afflalo has been in and out of the lineup over the last few weeks. He has played in just two of the Kings last seven games. He belongs on waivers in all leagues. Buddy Hield will continue to start and log heavy minutes at shooting guard.
