  • Kings' Malik Monk: Racks up 22 points off bench

    Monk racked up 22 points (8-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists, three rebounds and three steals over 33 minutes during Wednesday's 119-109 victory over the Spurs.

    Monk poured in 10 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter, with his big effort over the final 12 minutes helping the Kings to close out the Spurs. His 22 points on the night were the most he's scored in a contest since Dec. 28 and extended his streak of double-digit scoring to three games. However, Monk has made exactly two-thirds of his field-goal attempts over that stretch and is shooting 55.6 percent from three-point range, so a downturn in his offensive production will be coming sooner or later.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Strong two-way effort Monday

    Monk closed Monday's 118-111 overtime win over the Timberwolves with 19 points (9-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five assists, three steals and two rebounds in 32 minutes.

    Monk turned in his best fantasy performance in two months, producing on both ends of the floor in the overtime victory. After a strong start to the season, Monk has cooled over the past month, sitting outside the top 200 on a per-game basis in nine-category leagues. His playing time has varied wildly from game to game, ranging in the past seven contests from 11 minutes all the way up to the 32 that he saw Monday. Monk's capability of occasionally posting useful scoring, assists and three-pointers production makes him someone to monitor moving forward, but managers in 12-team leagues don't need to be scrambling to the wire to add him based on this effort, which looks like an outlier compare to his recent outings.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Approaches triple-double in win

    Monk supplied 13 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds and eight assists over 24 minutes during Monday's 133-100 victory over the Grizzlies.

    Monk was one of six Kings to finish with double-digit scoring in the contest, but his most impressive work came in other areas. The reserve guard grabbed a season-high nine boards and tied his top mark of the campaign with eight assists to help Sacramento to a sizable victory. Monk had been struggling mightily entering the contest, averaging just 4.5 points, 3.8 dimes and 2.5 rebounds while shooting a miserable 20.7 percent from the field over his previous four contests.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Limited impact off bench

    Monk closed with two points (1-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists and one block across 11 minutes during Wednesday's 116-111 victory over the Lakers.

    Although Monk saw a slight uptick in field-goal attempts during Wednesday's matchup, he was inefficient from the floor and scored below 10 points for a second consecutive game. He's logged single-digit scoring totals in four of his eight appearances this month and has averaged 9.1 points, 3.6 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 18.5 minutes per game during that time.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Left off injury report

    Monk (calf) isn't on the injury report for Monday's game versus the Magic, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Monk should be good to go Monday after missing the previous game with left calf soreness. His return should result in decreased playing time for Kevin Huerter and De'Aaron Fox.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Misses practice again

    Monk (calf) didn't participate in Saturday's practice and is a game-time decision against the Lakers, Brenden Nunes of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Monk's injury isn't considered serious, but his absence from practice two days in a row isn't a good sign of his availability. If he can't suit up Saturday, his next chance to play is Monday's game versus Orlando.

    Monk didn't partake in practice Friday due to left calf soreness, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    Monk's status for Saturday's clash with the Lakers is unclear, but the team's injury report later in the day should provide a clearer picture of his chances of suiting up. If he can't go, Terence Davis and Davion Mitchell could be among the candidates to see some extra minutes.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Set to play Sunday

    Monk (wrist) will be available for Sunday's game at Memphis.

    Monk was added to the injury report with some soreness in his wrist, but he'll be available Sunday and extend his streak of consecutive games played to 67. Monk is coming off a nine-point showing in 19 minutes off the bench Friday against Utah, but prior to that he erupted for 33 points in 30 minutes in a win over Denver.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Explodes for season-high 33 points

    Monk notched 33 points (12-21 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two rebounds, three assists and one steal across 30 minutes during Wednesday's 127-126 victory over Denver.

    Monk was tremendous in the victory, popping for a season-high 33 points. After failing to score more than 16 points in five straight games, this was a welcome sight for anyone patient enough to sit tight. His role is relatively secure, despite him coming off the bench, making him a viable target in 12-team leagues, especially for anyone in need of points and triples.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Posts strong stat line in loss

    Monk supplied 16 points (4-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 27 minutes during Friday's 125-111 loss to the Wizards.

    Monk wasn't very efficient from the field, but he was still able to finish third on Sacramento with 16 points. The veteran guard made his mark elsewhere as well, notching five boards, four dimes and a team-high two steals. Monk has been a bit up and down this season, but he's on pace for career-best per-game averages in points (14.3) and assists (4.0).

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Efficient from long range

    Monk registered 24 points (6-13 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 7-8 FT), three rebounds and three assists in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 124-123 victory over the Raptors.

    Monk came off the bench once again Wednesday, but he played a season-high 33 minutes and knocked down a season-high five shots from three-point range. He's scored 20-plus points in four of his last nine appearances and has averaged 17.8 points, 3.3 assists and 2.7 rebounds in 24.6 minutes per game during that time.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Solid numbers off bench

    Monk closed Tuesday's 123-103 loss to Philadelphia with 16 points (4-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 7-7 FT), three rebounds, four assists and one steal in 24 minutes off the bench.

    He was the Kings' second-leading scorer on the night behind Domantas Sabonis' 22, but the team was never really in the game, getting blown out 80-55 in the first half. Monk has dropped 16 or more points in five of the last eight games and failed to score in double digits only once, averaging 17.0 points, 3.4 assists, 2.6 boards, 2.0 threes and 0.9 steals over that stretch.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Lackluster outing

    Monk amassed nine points (4-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt) and one rebound over 22 minutes during Friday's 106-95 victory over the Cavaliers.

    Monk let down fantasy managers who may have been expecting an expanded role for the guard with De'Aaron Fox (foot) sidelined Friday. However, Sacramento opted to give Matthew Dellavadova the majority of backup point guard minutes. Monk has averaged 14.5 points and 4.0 assists in 22.5 minutes per game across 24 appearances.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Scores in double digits again

    Monk provided 16 points (7-19 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 29 minutes during Wednesday's 126-113 loss to the Bucks.

    Monk has been a consistent performer off the bench for Sacramento, scoring in double digits in five straight contests while reaching the 20-point mark thrice in that span. The sixth-year guard is having a career-best season off the bench for the Kings, averaging 14.8 points per game while shooting 52.1 percent from the field. That figure improves to 18.3 points per tilt over his last 10 outings.
