Bogdan Bogdanovic will play Saturday vs. Jazz

Kings G/F has been sidelined for the past six games due to ankle injury. He’s also been the talk of trade rumors recently.

Sacramento Kings G/F Bogdan Bogdanovic will return to the lineup Saturday vs. the Utah Jazz.

Bogdanovic has missed the past six games due to an ankle injury, but went through shootaround and will be back in the lineup. With the Kings lineup set in the starting five, I’d expect Bogdanovic to come off the bench and provide some scoring punch. He’s had a down season due to injuries, but is still shooting 38.3% from long range in 30 games this season.

Fantasy basketball analysis: Sacramento Kings G/F Bogdan Bogdanovic

With Bogdanovic back in the rotation, we should see less of Cory Joseph and Yogi Ferrell off the bench. I think Trevor Ariza’s value as a 3-and-D forward will help him stay in there, however. The Kings have been running a tight rotation, plus coming off the injury we can expect Bogdanovic to potentially be under a minutes restriction. I don’t think he’d be a wise play in DFS and season-long, but Sacramento needs to feature him a bit more before the deadline to boost his trade value.
