  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Drills three-pointer in light run

    Duarte scored three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and grabbed a rebound over eight minutes of court time in Wednesday's 102-98 win over the Nuggets.

    Duarte didn't play in Tuesday's 130-125 loss to Phoenix after being cleared to return from a three-game absence due to an ankle sprain, but the swingman cracked the rotation Wednesday in the second leg of a back-to-back set. Though he was able to knock down a three-pointer on his limited time on the court, Duarte isn't a lock to be a fixture on head coach Mike Brown's second unit when the Kings return to action coming out of the All-Star break.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Shakes ankle injury

    Duarte (ankle) is available for Tuesday's game against Phoenix.

    Duarte will return from a three-game absence after suffering a right ankle sprain during pregame warmups of the Kings' loss to the Pistons on Feb. 7. Before missing time with the injury, Duarte had been on the outskirts of the rotation, so he may not be in store for any playing time Tuesday even though he's available.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Gets questionable tag for Tuesday

    Duarte (ankle) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Suns, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Just last Thursday, the Kings relayed that Duarte wouldn't be evaluated for another 1-to-2 weeks due to a moderate right ankle sprain suffered one day earlier, but he evidently made quicker progress in his recovery than expected. Even if Duarte is ultimately cleared ahead of Tuesday's 10 p.m. ET tipoff, he's unlikely to be featured in head coach Mike Brown's rotation.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Out at least one week

    Duarte was diagnosed with a moderate right ankle sprain following an MRI on Thursday and will be re-evaluated in 7-to-14 days, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Given the timeline provided by the Kings, Duarte will most likely be held out through the All-Star break. The third-year wing has started 11 games for Sacramento this season but has been largely outside of head coach Mike Brown's rotation for the past month.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Out for Friday

    Duarte (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Nuggets.

    Duarte rolled his ankle during Wednesday's game and will now hit the sidelines for Friday's game. He's not a large enough part of the rotation for his absence to impact fantasy hoops, though.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Rolls ankle, ruled out Wednesday

    Duarte rolled his ankle during pregame warmups and won't play Wednesday against the Pistons, Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Considering Duarte has appeared in just two of Sacramento's last 11 games, his absence should have a minimal impact. His next chance to play will come Friday against Denver.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Joins starting five

    Duarte is back in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the 76ers.

    Duarte was replaced by Kevin Huerter in the starting five for Tuesday's game against Detroit, but Huerter left that contest with an ankle issue and won't be available Friday. As a starter this season, Duarte holds averages of 6.1 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 three-pointers.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Moves back to bench

    Duarte isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Pistons, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Duarte will be replaced by Kevin Huerter in the starting five Tuesday. Duarte has averaged 1.8 points and 1.2 rebounds in 8.2 minutes across his last 10 appearances coming off the bench.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Scores a single point

    Duarte notched one point (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and one assist over 15 minutes during Sunday's 133-100 loss to the Pelicans.

    Duarte had one of his toughest showings of the season, but to be fair, the entire starting lineup outside of Domantas Sabonis struggled. Meanwhile, Kevin Huerter had some success off the bench, scoring 17 points in 24 minutes. In 10 starts this season, Duarte holds averages of 6.1 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 three-pointers.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Moves into starting lineup

    Duarte will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game versus the Grizzlies, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Coach Mike Brown hinted at a starting lineup change during the morning shootaround, and it will be Duarte who replaces Kevin Huerter. It remains to be seen if this is just a temporary change, as Huerter has 104 starts to his name over the past two seasons. In five starts this season, Duarte holds averages of 6.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 three-pointers.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Good to go against Phoenix

    Duarte (knee) is available for Friday's game versus the Suns.

    Duarte has been upgraded from questionable to available Friday after missing Sacramento's previous two contests with a knee injury. With the Kings practically at full strength, Duarte will likely be one of the team's first forward options off the bench.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Iffy for Friday

    Duarte (knee) is questionable for Friday's game against the Suns.

    Duarte missed Monday's loss to the Pelicans but returned to practice Wednesday as a full participant. If he's out again, Sasha Vezenkov and Keon Ellis would be candidates for increased playing time versus the Suns.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Fully participates in practice

    Duarte (knee) fully participated in Wednesday's practice session, Sean Cunningham of Fox 40 Sacramento reports.

    Duarte was unavailable for Monday's game against the Pelicans due to a knee injury, but it was encouraging to see him return to practice a few days later. It's unclear whether he'll be available Friday against Phoenix, but he seems to be trending in the right direction.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Ruled out Monday

    Duarte (knee) will not play in Monday's game against the Pelicans, Sean Cunningham of Fox 40 Sacramento reports.

    Duarte was available for Sacramento's previous game, though he never saw the floor. His absence will likely open up a few more bench minutes for Sasha Vezenkov and Keon Ellis.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Questionable for Monday

    Duarte (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Pelicans.

    Duarte did not play in the team's last game after starting the previous four games, but he wasn't given an injury tag. Duarte is now listed as questionable for Monday's In-Season Tournament quarterfinal with left knee soreness, which could be an explanation for him not being featured against the Bulls. Then again, Duarte posted averages of 4.5 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.5 assists in 17.3 minutes per game over those four starts, so the team may have just been trying out a new rotation.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Back to bench

    Duarte will move back to the bench for Saturday's game against the Nuggets, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Keegan Murray (back) is back with the starters after missing the past four games for the Kings. In five total starts this season, Duarte was pretty quiet with averages of 6.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 three-pointers.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Good to go Wednesday

    Duarte (thumb) is available and in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Pelicans, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Duarte has been upgraded from questionable to available Wednesday despite dealing with left thumb soreness. With Keegan Murray (back) out, Duarte could be in store for extended playing time.

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Full go at shootaround

    Duarte (thumb), who's listed as questionable, was a full participant during the Kings' morning shootaround and is trending toward playing Wednesday against the Pelicans, Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Duarte, Sasha Vezenkov (thumb) and Trey Lyles (calf) are all expected to play despite being listed as questionable, but Keegan Murray (back) is trending in the wrong direction. If Murray is ruled out and Duarte is available, the latter would presumably take the former's spot in the starting lineup. In his only start this season, Duarte posted season highs in points (13), rebounds (eight), assists (four), steals (two) and minutes played (33).

  • Kings' Chris Duarte: Questionable for Wednesday

    Duarte (thumb) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Pelicans.

    Duarte is dealing with left thumb soreness after leaving Monday's contest early. Sasha Vezenkov (thumb) and Kessler Edwards are candidates to receive extended minutes if Duarte joins Keon Ellis (ankle) on the sideline.
