  • Kings' Keegan Murray: Flirts with double-double

    Murray ended with 20 points (7-11 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds and one block over 34 minutes during Monday's 133-100 victory over the Grizzlies.

    Murray notched his seventh career game with at least 20 points and fell one rebound shy of his third double-double over his past four appearances. During that stretch, the rookie has averaged 18.0 points and 9.3 rebounds in 37.3 minutes per game, but his shooting percentages (63.2 from the field and 57.7 from deep) suggest his strong production will be difficult to maintain. Nonetheless, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft is off to a great start to the 2023 portion of the Kings' schedule.

  • Kings' Keegan Murray: Career-best performance

    Murray closed with 29 points (10-12 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 14 rebounds and one assist in 37 minutes during Friday's 118-113 win over the Thunder.

    The points and boards were both new personal bests, as Murray flashed the upside that made him the fourth overall pick in this year's draft. He's posted back-to-back double-doubles, the first two of his career. Through 10 games in January, he's averaging 14.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, 3.1 threes and 1.3 assists while shooting 51.6 percent from the floor, 50.8 percent from the beyond the arc and 91.7 percent from the free-throw line -- dazzling efficiency for a rookie.

  • Kings' Keegan Murray: Posts first career double-double

    Murray finished with 10 points (3-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and 10 rebounds in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 116-111 win over the Lakers.

    Murray wasn't very active on offense Wednesday, but he did just enough to hit double-digit scoring for the fifth time in his past six games. The rookie also tied his season high with 10 boards, giving him the first double-double of his NBA career. Though that is certainly a meaningful accomplishment, Murray failed to notch any assists or defensive stats in the win, emphasizing his limited skill set. With per-game averages of 11.7 points, 4.0 boards, 0.9 assists, 2.4 three-pointers, 0.8 steals and 0.6 blocks across 28.8 minutes on the campaign, Murray's value in fantasy mainly depends on his ability to knock down shots from deep.

  • Kings' Keegan Murray: Drills three triples Tuesday

    Murray finished with 16 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one block in 37 minutes Tuesday in the Kings' 117-115 win over the Jazz.

    Though he still isn't living up the big expectations he created during his splashy performance in the Las Vegas Summer League, Murray at least came through with a solid line Tuesday after averaging just 7.2 points on 36.8 percent shooting from the field over his previous five outings. The heavy playing time was a welcome sight after Murray had fallen below the 30-minute mark in each of his last three appearances, but head coach Mike Brown may have just elected to stick with the rookie since he was sporting a hotter hand than normal. At this stage, Murray hasn't produced well enough to be a startable option in most 12-team category and points leagues, but there's some reason to think that his numbers will improve as he becomes more acclimated to the NBA game.

  • Kings' Keegan Murray: Emphatically unsatisfying in win

    Murray registered five points (2-7 FG, 1-5 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist across 21 minutes during Wednesday's 127-126 win over the Nuggets.

    Murray struggled again in the win, continuing what has been an underwhelming rookie campaign thus far. Despite being a standout during both Summer League and the preseason, it's been nothing but low points for Murray. He currently sits outside the top 150, providing very little other than some three-point upside. Of course, he will be better than this as we move through his career but for now, he is a tough player to hold outside of deeper formats. He's managed just 19 points total over his last three outings.

  • Kings' Keegan Murray: Posts career-high 23 points

    Murray totaled 23 points (7-17 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal over 35 minutes during Wednesday's 134-120 victory over the Lakers.

    Murray rode six three-pointers to the best scoring total of his career. The rookie has been a mainstay in Sacramento's starting five for most of the season, and although he weathered some growing pains along the way, the Iowa product is turning into a solid fantasy contributor. He's now scored 20 or more points in two of his last three games.

  • Kings' Keegan Murray: Scores 11 points, adds little else

    Murray ended Monday's 125-119 loss to the Hornets with 11 points (4-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT), one rebound, one block and one steal across 31 minutes.

    Murray tied for fourth on Sacramento with 11 points in the loss, with all but two of that total coming from three-point range. However, he missed both of his free-throw attempts and notched only one board along with zero assists, though he did record a steal and a block. Murray has done some good things this season with 11.9 points, 4.3 boards and 2.2 three-pointers per game, though he's a fringe top-150 performer due to a 43 percent shooting mark from the field and modest peripheral stats.

  • Kings' Keegan Murray: Will play Sunday

    Murray (thumb) is available for Sunday's matchup against the Knicks, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    Murray was listed as questionable due to a thumb injury, but he'll ultimately suit up Sunday. Over his past six appearances (all starts), the rookie first-round pick has averaged 15.3 points and 4.2 rebounds in 26.3 minutes per game.

  • Kings' Keegan Murray: Questionable at New York

    Murray is questionable for Sunday's game against the Knicks due to left thumb soreness.

    Murray has turned his play around, and he's scored in double figures in each of the past six games with percentages of 52/49/89. If he sits out Sunday, more minutes could be in store for KZ Okpala, Trey Lyles and Terence Davis (back).

  • Kings' Keegan Murray: Strong defensive showing

    Murray notched 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal over 27 minutes during Wednesday's 126-113 loss to Milwaukee.

    Murray tied for his career high in blocks Wednesday while also adding a steal. The rookie forward scored the ball efficiently, converting 60 percent of his field goals and 50 percent of his three-pointers.

  • Kings' Keegan Murray: Crashes back to earth in win

    Murray closed with 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt), four rebounds and one block across 24 minutes during Sunday's 110-101 victory over Chicago.

    Coming off arguably his best game of the season, Murray was unable to maintain his momentum, reverting back to mediocre production. Despite sticking in the starting lineup, he often sees fewer minutes than the rest of the opening five. Malik Monk has been a revelation off the bench and is typically on the court when the game is on the line. There is obviously an element of upside here but given the Kings are pushing hard on most nights, he is simply not going to be afforded the same opportunities as a number of other promising rookies.

  • Kings' Keegan Murray: Scores career-high 23 points

    Murray finished Saturday's 123-96 win over the Clippers with 23 points (8-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and two steals in 28 minutes.

    Murray busted out of his slump with an efficient shooting performance, knocking down 53.3 percent of his field goals. He'd averaged 7.3 points and 4.3 rebounds over his last seven contests entering Saturday's clash, so this bounce-back night was an encouraging sign for fantasy managers.
