Bogdan Bogdanovic (ankle) did not practice on Monday.

This is the second day in a row that Bogdanovic has sat out practice, so it looks like he might not be available for Sacramento's regular-season opener against Houston on Wednesday. If he is forced to begin the 2017-18 season on the sidelines, that would open up minutes for guys like Justin Jackson and Buddy Hield.
Oct 16 - 5:49 PM

De'Aaron Fox (back) was a full participant during Monday's practice.

Fox missed Sacramento's preseason finale with a bruised back, but he's been a full participant at practice for the past two days and has been cleared for Wednesday's season opener. George Hill (groin) was also a full participant during Monday's practice, and it looks like he could be ready for the start of the season as well, which would result in Fox coming off the bench. Fox could start slow this season, but he could have a strong second half making him someone to think about as a stash.
Oct 16 - 5:47 PM

George Hill (groin) practiced on Monday and is hoping he'll be cleared for Wednesday's season opener against the Rockets.

Hill getting through a full practice is certainly encouraging regarding his status for Wednesday night, and we should have a better idea on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he is cleared to play, that would likely translate to De'Aaron Fox coming off the bench in his NBA debut. Stay tuned.
Oct 16 - 5:43 PM

De'Aaron Fox (back) practiced in full on Sunday and he'll be good to go for Sacramento's regular-season opener against the Rockets on Wednesday.

George Hill (groin) is currently banged up, and it's not clear if he'll be good to go by Wednesday, so Fox might be getting all the minutes he can handle on opening night. He's someone to consider as a late-round target on draft day.
Oct 15 - 4:18 PM

Bogdan Bogdanovic (ankle) did not participate fully during Sunday's practice.

Bogdanovic tweaked his ankle on October 13, so it makes sense for the Kings to take it easy on him with the regular season opener right around the corner. Dave Joerger said he hopes that Bogdanovic will be able to play on opening night, and we should get more than a few updates on Bogdanovic leading up to Wednesday's tip. Bogdanovic might be worth a flier in deep leagues, but he's not quite on the radar in 12-team leagues.
Oct 15 - 4:12 PM

George Hill (groin) and Bogdan Bogdanovic (ankle) were limited during Sunday's practice.

Hill has had a lot of trouble staying on the court throughout his career, so it's not great that he'll be coming into the 2017-18 season at less than 100 percent. Head coach David Joerger said he hopes to have both these guys available for the regular season opener against the Rockets on Wednesday, but if Hill isn't able to give it a go, De'Aaron Fox could get off to a quick start as Sacramento's starting point guard.
Oct 15 - 4:09 PM

The Kings have waived G Reggie Hearn.

He'll likely be playing in the G-League this season.
Oct 15 - 3:31 PM

The Kings have waived G Matt Jones.

Jones was brought in as an extra body for training camp, but he never had a realistic shot of making the opening night roster.
Oct 15 - 3:27 PM

The Kings have waived David Stockton.

He was never expected to make the team.
Oct 15 - 3:25 PM

The Kings rested Zach Randolph, Kosta Koufos, Vince Carter and Garrett Temple on Friday.

For now, it sounds like the Kings will put Koufos in the rotation in the beginning of the year. However, there just isn't enough upside to take him almost anywhere.
Oct 14 - 1:29 AM

Georgios Papagiannis scored 13 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.

He actually had a good game tonight, but Papagiannis is not a lock for the rotation until the Kings start to fall in the standings. For what it's worth, the Kings have said they want to be patient with Papa G.
Oct 14 - 1:27 AM

Bogdan Bogdanovic (ankle) will not play on Friday night.

The good news is he is day-to-day. Bogdanovic's ankle injury didn't look good on Thursday, so it's possible he is not ready to go next week. If he isn't, we should see more Garrett Temple, Buddy Hield and maybe Malachi Richardson to help out the two-PG lineups.
Oct 13 - 4:24 PM

De'Aaron Fox (back) will not play on Friday against the Warriors.

He hasn't sounded too concerned with this injury and he should still be ready to roll on opening night. Perhaps he has even gained value because George Hill's nagging groin injury popped up again on Thursday. Fox will be more of a stash in most leagues, but he's still worth a flier.
Oct 13 - 4:22 PM

George Hill (groin), De'Aaron Fox (back) and Bogdan Bogdanovic (ankle) have all been ruled out for Friday against the Warriors.

Hill had no chance to play after what looked like a minor groin injury on Thursday. The problem here with Hill is that he's had a litany of groin injuries since 2012, so even just a scare here should move him down draft boards a bit.
Oct 13 - 4:21 PM

Bogdan Bogdanovic's (ankle) injury is not considered serious, according to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee.

This is good news after the rookie needed help off the floor. Presumably, he's not going to play on Friday, and we would consider him questionable for opening night. If he can't go, Garrett Temple, Buddy Hield and maybe De'Aaron Fox could get a few extra minutes.
