Keegan Murray played 43 minutes in Friday’s win over Minnesota, scoring 17 points (7-of-15 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) with five rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block, and one 3-pointer.
After shooting 4-of-11 from the field and scoring 11 points in Sunday’s win over the Clippers, Murray has scored 17 or more in three straight. He’s been more productive than fantasy managers anticipated for the season, providing 5th-round per-game value in 9-cat formats. Murray hasn’t been as good in 8-cat formats, as removing turnovers from the equation boosts the values of many players with higher usage numbers than the second-year forward. He has been a dependable secondary option for the Kings, and there are still strides he can make to be even more impactful as a scorer.
