Kosta Koufos (rest) will not play Wednesday against the Clippers.
The Kings should've probably ruled him out for the season as Koufos won't be playing in the final eight games of the year. Coach Dave Joerger talked up Georgios Papagiannis after Tuesday's game, so maybe he gets turned loose a bit tonight.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: The Kings are going to have eight healthy bodies on Wednesday, and five of them are guards, so the front-court players in the rotation should see huge minutes as a result. Willie Cauley-Stein, Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis are the only active big men, and it would stand to reason that both Cauley-Stein and Labissiere should see at least 30 minutes of court time, with Papagiannis likely to at least approach that total.

Date:

Kosta Koufos (rest) will not play Tuesday vs. the Suns.

With the Kings in tank mode and resting their vets, Koufos has yet to appear in a single game this month. He's likely to remain sidelined for the season finale on Wednesday as well.
Apr 11 - 6:02 PM

Kosta Koufos will rest on Sunday vs. Houston.

He's been "resting" since Mar. 27 and likely won't play on Tuesday vs. the Suns or Wednesday vs. the Clippers either.
Apr 9 - 1:39 PM

Kosta Koufos will not play against the Lakers on Friday.

It's another day off and Koufos is basically out for the season. Georgios Papagiannis will back up Willie Cauley-Stein for this one while Skal Labissiere should get solid minutes at the four.
Apr 7 - 4:35 PM

Kosta Koufos (rest) will remain on the sidelines for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks.

This will be Koufos' fourth straight game on the sidelines due to rest purposes, and there's a chance he could eventually be shut down by Sacramento. Willie Cauley-Stein, Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis will continue to pick up most of the frontcourt minutes in Sacramento.

Kosta Koufos (rest) will not play Saturday vs. Minnesota.

This will be the third straight game in which Koufos has been rested. Willie Cauley-Stein, Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis will continue to soak up most of the minutes in the middle for Sacramento.
Apr 1 - 1:52 PM

Kosta Koufos (rest) will not play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

This will be the second straight game Koufos has missed. Willie Cauley-Stein, Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis should see additional playing time with Kosta on the sidelines.
Mar 31 - 12:56 PM

Kosta Koufos (rest) will not play on Wednesday.

This is a standard move for the Kings. They have rested him basically every other game and started him in the other. We'll see some Georgios Papagiannis tonight after a DNP-CD on Monday.
Mar 29 - 5:46 PM

Kosta Koufos finished with 11 points, five rebounds, three blocked shots, two steals and an assist in 30 minutes Monday against the Grizzlies.

Koufos has rested in two of the past three outings, and these were his most minutes since logging 37 back on March 5 against Utah. The big man out of Ohio State has been a cheap source of rebounds and blocked shots for DFS players when he is in the lineup, and he has been a decent low-end option in deeper seasonal rotisserie formats down the stretch.
Mar 28 - 1:28 AM

Kosta Koufos is starting vs. the Grizzlies on Monday.

The Kings will start Darren Collison, Buddy Hield, Garrett Temple, Willie Cauley-Stein and Koufos, meaning Skal Labissiere will come off the bench. Koufos is going to be rested too much going forward to help fantasy owners, so leave him on the wire.
Mar 27 - 10:31 PM

Kosta Koufos will rest on Sunday vs. the Clippers.

This is the front end of a back-to-back set, meaning Koufos should be good for Monday's game vs. the Grizzlies. He's going to be rested way too much to help fantasy owners going forward. Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis should get a nice bump with Koufos out, but Labissiere is the better fantasy option.
Mar 26 - 12:29 PM

Kosta Koufos scored two points with two rebounds, one assist and one block in 14 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.

He'll get more rest going forward and there is just no upside in fantasy right now. Even if you're in a 40-man league, go pick up someone else. The Kings may even shut him down to look more at their youth.
Mar 25 - 2:48 AM

Kosta Koufos is starting vs. the Warriors on Friday.

Koufos was rested on Wednesday vs. the Bucks, but should see his normal workload tonight. We still like Skal Labissiere's outlook going forward and Koufos could get more DNPs down the stretch, so Koufos belongs on the wire in standard leagues.
Mar 24 - 10:16 PM

Kosta Koufos (rest) will not play Wednesday against the Bucks.

It's a home game for the Kings, so they'll give their fans a look at the youth today. Georgios Papagiannis had a productive weekend on the road and should be looking at minutes in the 20s. He's a sneaky guy to use in fantasy, especially with how the Kings are giving him the ball. Koufos is not worth owning in most fantasy leagues anymore.
Mar 22 - 7:46 PM

Kosta Koufos scored nine points with six rebounds, two assists and one block in 23 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

He is playing through a right hand injury and does have two fingers taped. According to the Kings broadcast, Koufos said he is going to have to play through it for a month or so. Perhaps this will be a reason to hold Koufos out of games as the season winds down. With Georgios Papagiannis turning in his best game as a pro, we'll likely be seeing Koufos' playing time start to fade.
