Arron Afflalo (hamstring) will not play on Monday vs. the Wolves.
The Kings will continue to play it safe with the veteran. The Kings are tanking and Afflalo's contract for next season isn't guaranteed, so his outlook is poor going forward. Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans and Ben McLemore will pick up the bulk of the wing minutes. Feb 27 - 7:44 PM

Arron Afflalo (hamstring) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Wolves.

The Kings are likely to play it safe with the veteran, especially since they have no incentive to rush his return. Ben McLemore is playing well, and the Kings just acquired Buddy Hield and Tyreke Evans, so there's simply no upside here.

Arron Afflalo (hamstring) will not play on Saturday vs. the Hornets.

This will be his second straight game on the shelf. With Afflalo out again, the Kings will use more two-PG lineups and will keep giving the bulk of the wing minutes to Buddy Hield, Ben McLemore and Tyreke Evans. Afflalo belongs on the wire.

Arron Afflalo (hamstring) will not play on Thursday night against the Nuggets.

No revenge game for Afflalo. With him out and the Kings in dire straits on the wings, we should see a lot of Ben McLemore and even some Ty Lawson in two-PG lineups. McLemore will be a risky DFS play and isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 23 - 8:43 PM

The Pacers reportedly have interest in trading for Kings swingman Arron Afflalo.

If the Pacers don't get a suitable offer for Paul George, it sounds like they'll pivot to being buyers at the deadline. Afflalo would provide redundant depth on the wings and he's a poor per-minutes fantasy option, so there's no cause for optimism here.
Feb 23 - 2:40 PM

League executives expect Arron Afflalo to be moved prior to the deadline according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

The Kings are clearly tanking so they can keep their top-10 protected lottery pick that they owe to Chicago. Afflalo's owed a non-guaranteed $12.5 million next season, so his expiring contract shouldn't be too hard to move. The Kings will be lucky to get a second-round pick in return.

Arron Afflalo (hamstring) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice.

In case you missed it, Afflalo left Wednesday's game early with right glute/hamstring stiffness, but he's had nearly a week off to get healthy. Afflalo could be moved at the deadline because his contract isn't guaranteed for the 2017-18 season, but he's not worth stashing in most formats.
Feb 21 - 9:40 PM

Arron Afflalo is available in trade talks as we approach the Feb. 23 deadline.

The Kings are in rebuild mode after moving on from DeMarcus Cousins, so it seems like a no-brainer for them to shop the veteran SG. Afflalo's contract for the 2017-18 season isn't guaranteed, so any team that has interest in acquiring him will likely view him as a one-season rental. To be clear, there's no reason to stash Afflalo in most formats.
Feb 20 - 9:52 AM

Arron Afflalo is out for the remainder of the game on Wednesday with right glute/hamstring stiffness.

Matt Barnes started the second half for Afflalo. The team saying that Afflalo is only dealing with stiffness suggests the time off should help him get over this issue. It has also been called precautionary. Afflalo finished with four points and two assists in 16 minutes.
Feb 15 - 11:56 PM

Arron Afflalo scored two points with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 36 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

That's pretty much Afflalo's fantasy skill set in a nutshell. He should get some minutes, but he just doesn't do much per minute. Most fantasy owners should be shooting for a higher upside.
Feb 5 - 2:55 AM

Arron Afflalo (illness) will play on Saturday vs. the Warriors.

Ben McLemore is the big loser here after he logged 35 minutes on Friday night. Afflalo has been underwhelming all season and is not a fantasy pickup, even with Garrett Temple (hamstring) out for weeks.
Feb 4 - 9:00 PM

Arron Afflalo (illness) is probable to play against the Warriors on Saturday night.

He was out for Friday night, which allowed Ben McLemore to start and score a season-high 18 points. Plus, we saw 18 minutes of Darren Collison next to Ty Lawson. McLemore could still get minutes, but he will be taking a hit upon Afflalo's return. While Afflalo could get some run, he's not exactly a stat-stuffer this season.
Feb 4 - 3:07 PM

Arron Afflalo (illness) will not play on Friday vs. the Suns.

With Afflalo out, this may be Malachi Richardson's best chance for minutes so far this season. Ty Lawson, Darren Collison and Ben McLemore also get a slight bump here. Afflalo belongs on the wire in most leagues.
Feb 3 - 8:48 PM

Arron Afflalo (illness) is questionable to play against the Suns on Friday.

This is the latest game of the night with a 10:30 EST start, so DFS owners almost certainly won't know Afflalo's status before lineups lock. Afflalo would be looking at some serious minutes as the starting shooting guard, averaging 33.6 minutes per game over his last five. He doesn't have much value in standard leagues for lack of diversity on the stat sheet, and now being questionable makes him very risky for DFS. If he can't go, rookie Malachi Richardson would be thrust into his biggest role of his career while Ty Lawson, Darren Collison and Ben McLemore would play a little more.
Feb 3 - 4:04 PM

Arron Afflalo scored 15 points as a starter against the Pacers on Friday, adding one rebound, one turnover and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He was big time on Wednesday with 40 minutes and 14 points. We've obviously seen Dave Joerger pull the plug on Afflalo, but he's looked good on the court for five straight. The problem is it hasn't shown much on the stat sheet, averaging 9.8 points, 1.6 boards, 1.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 2.4 treys in that span. The lower upside makes him tough to grab unless you're streaming.
