Sacramento Kings Fantasy Spin

Buddy Hield hit just 6-of-21 shots and 5-of-12 3-pointers for 18 points, six rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes of Sunday's 111-106 loss to the Lakers. De'Aaron Fox was even worse, hitting just 3-of-16 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, six boards, four assists and six steals in the loss. Both players got it done thanks to Hield's 3-pointers and Fox's steals, and both of them are must-starts for their upcoming four-game week in Week 24.

Dallas Mavericks Fantasy Spin

Luka Doncic (left knee soreness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday vs. the Kings. He had a left knee issue in early March, the same knee that he heard a "pop" in and played through. Luka's most recent injury was to his right knee, but that was a minor contusion. The Mavs do not have an incentive to push Luka at less than 100 percent, but he's also been a warrior and has played through a variety of ailments. If he can't go, Maxi Kleber will be a terrific streaming option and Dorian Finney-Smith would get a bump as well.
