Kings' Delon Wright: Comes close to double-double

Wright mustered 21 points (8-11 FG, 5-7 3Pt), eight assists, four rebounds and four steals across 33 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Thunder. Another start, another impressive performance from Wright -- he ended just two assists away from putting up a double-double and has dished out at least five dimes in seven straight appearances. He's averaging 17.8 points, 7.2 assists, 7.0 rebounds and 3.2 steals per game in five starts this month.

Kings' Delon Wright: Posts 15-7-5 line in win

Wright tallied 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt), seven rebounds, five assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Sunday's 126-98 win over the Thunder. Wright has been on a roll over his last six games, averaging 15.5 points, 6.7 assists, 6.5 rebounds, 2.5 steals, 1.8 blocks and 1.8 three-pointers while shooting 52 percent from the field. The 29-year-old's role and usage will inevitably shrink once De'Aaron Fox (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) is ready to rejoin the lineup, but until then, Wright should continue to feast as the Kings' starting point guard.

Isaac Okoro, Delon Wright, T.J. McConnell and RJ Hampton making noise

1. Isaac Okoro – Cavaliers – 10 percent rostered – 7 games remaining. Isaac Okoro has been showing serious signs of life over the last couple weeks and fully broke out on Tuesday night, almost single-handedly forcing overtime against the Suns, the team with the best record in the league. The Cavaliers completely ran out of gas in the extra session, but Okoro had a big and-one driving layup to tie the game with less than a minute remaining and then made another tough bucket that ended up sending the game to overtime. He finished with career-high 32 points, three rebounds, six assists, a steal and three 3-pointers in 47 minutes and committed just one turnover on the night. He also hit 10-of-16 shots and 9-of-9 free throws and looked like the best player on the court for much of the night. He’s scored in double figures in six straight games and while the absence of Darius Garland (ankle) certainly played a big role in last night’s success, the Cavs have to be excited to see if he can keep it going the rest of the way. His free throw shooting might be the most exciting part of this emergence as he hit just 68 percent of them prior to the All-Star break and is shooting 77 percent from the line since then. And after not averaging more than 10.7 points in any month this season, he’s sitting at 16.3 points over his last six. And while it’s entirely possible he won’t have another night like this again this season, it feels like he turned a corner on Tuesday night and may be a different player the rest of the way. He was dealing with some apparent cramping in his left calf so make sure he’s good to go on Wednesday night against the Blazers if you decide to take a flier on him.

Kings' Delon Wright: Fills stat sheet in win

Wright had 23 points (8-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, six assists, six steals and a block across 40 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Pacers. Wright ended as the Kings' second-best scorer behind Marvin Bagley, but he also led the team in both assists and steals while ending just three rebounds away from a double-double. The former Utah product has scored in double digits in four straight contests but has been thriving as a stat-filling machine in that span -- he's averaging 15.3 points, 6.5 assists, 6.3 rebounds, 3.3 steals and 1.5 blocks per game in that span.

Kings' Delon Wright: Monster performance Tuesday

Wright had 13 points (6-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt), 10 rebounds, eight assists, four steals and four blocks across 37 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Thunder. The 29-year-old will enter the lineup Tuesday and was likely to have an increased workload with Tyrese Haliburton sidelined, though no one would have expected him to look as dominant as he did. Wright recorded his third double-double of the season and ended just two assists away from a triple-double, while also recording a season-high mark in blocks. Expect Wright to remain in the starting five for Wednesday's game at Indiana.

Kings' Delon Wright: Joins starting five

Wright will start Tuesday's game at Oklahoma City, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. The 29-year-old will enter the lineup Tuesday and likely will have an increased workload with Tyrese Haliburton sidelined. Wright has averaged 9.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.4 steals in 26.6 minutes over the past five games, but he should see more production as a starter.

Kings' Delon Wright: Productive again Sunday

Wright closed with 14 points (7-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five assists, two rebounds and two steals in 31 minutes during Sunday's 111-99 victory over the Mavericks. Wright came through with another serviceable performance during the victory. Although perhaps the biggest takeaway here is the injury suffered by Tyrese Haliburton (knee). While there has been no word on the severity, there is certainly a chance Haliburton is shut down for the remainder of the regular season. If that is the case, Wright could find himself in a favorable position down the stretch, and based on past history, he could be a difference-maker across a host of fantasy leagues. Make sure he isn't available in your league.

Kings' Delon Wright: Posts solid stat line Friday

Wright finished Friday's 110-16 win over the Lakers with 11 points (4-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt), seven assists, six rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot across 27 minutes. Wright did a little bit of everything to help Sacramento pull off the upset over the defending champs. He came into the contest having made only one three-pointer in five attempts over his past four games but found the bottom of the net three times against Los Angeles en route to his first double-digit scoring effort since April 20. Wright has been dramatically inconsistent since joining Sacramento, so he isn't a target for managers still alive in fantasy playoffs despite his solid all-around effort Friday.

Kings' Delon Wright: Plays 27 minutes in Sunday's loss

Wright closed with seven points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, five assists and two steals in 27 minutes during Sunday's 117-113 loss to Golden State. Wright was far from dominant on the offensive end of the floor but there were still plenty of positives to take out of the game. The playing time is certainly encouraging, and if he can nudge 30 minutes a night while De'Aaron Fox (COVID-19 protocols) is on the sideline, Wright absolutely moves into the standard league conversation. At this stage of the season, assists and steals could be crucial to fantasy success and so making a play for Wright is definitely on the cards.

Kings' Delon Wright: Drains four threes off bench

Wright scored 14 points (5-8 FG, 4-7 3Pt) while adding five assists, three rebounds, two steals and a block in 27 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's loss to the Timberwolves. It was another productive performance for the 28-year-old, who's scored in double digits in four of the last five...

Kings' Delon Wright: Increased role in loss

Wright turned in 16 points (6-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, four assists and a steal across 28 minutes in Thursday's 122-114 loss to the Suns. Wright logged his highest minute total as a King in Thursday's loss. Sacramento's crowded depth chart makes it difficult for Wright to carve out a role, but the most likely landing spot is behind Tyrese Haliburton and Buddy Hield. Given Haliburton's decent shooting struggles, he may see similar upticks in future games.

Kings' Delon Wright: Racks up four steals

Wright scored 12 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with four steals and one rebound across 23 minutes in Monday's loss to the Pelicans. Wright benefited from the absence of Buddy Hield (illness) and returned to a 20-minute role once again. He shot fairly efficiently, but the highlight was his defensive work as he racked up four steals. Assuming Hield isn't sidelined for an extended amount of time, Wright will likely find it harder to earn minutes with both Hield and Tyrese Haliburton available.

Kings' Delon Wright: Scores 16 off bench

Wright tallied 16 points (5-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 120-106 loss to the Spurs. The 28-year-old turned in his most productive game since being traded to the Kings on March 24. Wright had averaged just 3.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 0.5 steals in 22.8 minutes in his first two games with the Kings, so Wednesday's outing can't necessarily be viewed as a sign of what to expected moving forward.

Kings' Delon Wright: Plays 23 minutes in debut

Wright made his Kings debut Saturday night against the Cavs and posted four points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes. The Kings were able to upgrade their backcourt rotation at the deadline, adding Wright while sending Cory Joseph and future second-round picks back to Detroit. Wright has been a starting-caliber fantasy option for much of the year, but as the sixth man in Sacramento, he may be worth dropping in some leagues -- particularly if his workload settles in the low-20-minutes on most nights.
