Sacramento Kings DFS Notes

Buddy Hield (left ankle) recorded a line of 21 points (8-of-15 FGs), three rebounds, six assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 31 minutes Tuesday vs. Oklahoma City. Hield wasn't officially cleared to play until just before tipoff, as he has been dealing with a sore left ankle recently. But he started and managed to play 31 minutes in the Kings victory, as they managed to keep their slim play-in tournament hopes alive for at least one more day. Since scoring just two points in a win over the Lakers back on April 30, Hield has made at least four 3-pointers in six consecutive games. Sacramento has an upcoming back-to-back in Memphis scheduled for Thursday/Friday, and that could prove problematic for Hield depending on the severity of his lingering ankle injury.

Memphis Grizzlies DFS Notes

Ja Morant played 29 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Mavericks, tallying 22 points (7-of-13 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), seven rebounds, eight assists, one steal and three 3-pointers. After scoring a total of 24 points on 8-of-21 shooting in the two games prior, Morant matched that number with a far more efficient effort Tuesday night. While an exciting young point guard, he's been a bit of a disappointment this season when it comes to fantasy production. Ranked just inside of the top-200 in 9-cat for the season, Morant sits outside of that threshold over the last two weeks. At this rate, it would be a surprise if he matched his Yahoo ADP (30) in drafts ahead of the 2021-22 season.
