  • Kings' Malik Monk: Explodes for team-high 30 points

    Monk recorded 30 points (12-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound, eight assists and one steal across 30 minutes during Monday's 122-117 loss to the Suns.

    Monk put up a point per minute for his best scoring effort of the season, eclipsing his 27-point performance just five days earlier. The sharpshooter also tied a season high with eight assists in his best game of the campaign. Monk's scoring has been somewhat inconsistent this season, but he's nonetheless on pace for career-best marks of 14.3 points and 4.3 dimes per contest.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Season-high 27 points off bench

    Monk closed Wednesday's 115-106 loss to Atlanta with 27 points (12-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt), four assists and two steals over 26 minutes.

    Monk provided a big spark off the bench for the Kings on Wednesday, racking up 15 first-half points on 7-of-9 shooting and later going 3-of-3 for seven points in the fourth quarter. He shot 66.7 percent from the field in the contest, matching his best shooting percentage in a game this season while also recording a game and season-high 27 points. Despite the excellent night from Monk, the Kings still saw their seven-game winning streak come to an end after falling too far behind early.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Ejected from Sunday's game

    Monk was ejected from Sunday's game against the Pistons in the fourth quarter after being assessed his second technical foul, Mike Curtis of The Detroit News reports.

    Monk shoved Killian Hayes following a layup in the fourth quarter and was tossed from the matchup since he was issued his second technical foul. Prior to his departure, he posted eight points (3-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, two steals and a rebound in 19 minutes. It seems unlikely that his ejection will lead to a suspension, so he'll likely be available Tuesday in Memphis.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Upgraded to available

    Monk (mouth) is available for Sunday's matchup against the Pistons, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    Monk missed Saturday's practice and was initially listed as questionable following a dental procedure, but the sharpshooter won't miss any game action. Last time out, Monk came off the bench and scored a season-high 26 points (11-19 FG) in 28 minutes, marking his second game with at least 20 points this season.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Questionable Sunday

    Monk is questionable for Sunday's game against the Pistons after having a dental procedure, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.

    Monk was unable to participate in Saturday's practice as he recovers from the procedure, leaving his availability up in the air for Sunday. If he were to sit out, Terence Davis would be in line to see an expanded workload against Detroit.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Goes off for 26 points Thursday

    Monk finished with 26 points (11-19 FG, 4-9 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists over 28 minutes during Thursday's 130-112 victory over the Spurs.

    Monk nearly matched De'Aaron Fox (28 points) for team-high scoring honors despite coming off the bench and playing four fewer minutes. Monk got to his season-high point total on the strength of an efficient shooting performance that included a 4-for-9 mark from three-point range. He's been somewhat inconsistent this season but has now scored double-digit points in seven of his past eight contests.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Available Wednesday

    Monk (groin) is available for Wednesday's game against Cleveland, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    Monk was questionable ahead of Wednesday's matchup due to right groin soreness, but the Kings will be at full strength against the Cavaliers. Over his last three appearances, he's averaged 19.3 points and 5.3 assists in 27.3 minutes per game.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Deemed questionable Wednesday

    Monk is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against Cleveland due to right groin soreness.

    Monk likely picked up the injury sometime during his season-best 24-point performance against the Warriors on Monday. If the guard is unable to give it a go Wednesday, Terence Davis will presumably see an uptick in minutes versus the Cavs.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Impressive off bench Monday

    Monk provided 24 points (7-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 7-7 FT), six rebounds, four assists and one steal over 31 minutes during Monday's 116-113 loss to the Warriors.

    Monk can get hot on any given game, and while his efforts were not enough to lift the Kings to a victory against the reigning champions, at least it'll go down as his best scoring output of the season. It's hard to trust Monk in standard formats due to his bench role, but he seems to be trending in the right direction and has now scored at least 15 points in each of his last three contests.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Scores 19 off bench

    Monk finished with 19 points (8-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven assists and one block in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 110-107 loss to Miami.

    Monk bounced back with a solid effort off the bench on Wednesday night after going just 2-of-9 from the field in his previous contest. The Kings shooting guard recorded seven first-half points on 3-of-6 shooting, but it was in the third quarter when he really made his presence felt, either scoring or assisting for field goals on four consecutive possessions after entering the game for Kevin Huerter. Monk has now scored in double figures in three of his last five games.

  • Kings' Malik Monk: Blossoms in win

    Monk produced 16 points (6-15 FG, 4-10 3Pt), seven rebounds, eight assists and three steals over 29 minutes during Sunday's 130-125 loss to Golden State.

    Monk boomed after two cold games to begin the season. Although he benefitted from Davion Mitchell picking up three fouls in his first four minutes of action, Monk's production was excellent. It could prove wise to bear with Monk as he adjusts to a new offense. He'll always be a streaky scorer, but he demonstrated more consistency last season in Los Angeles.
