Koufos scored 16 points (7-9 FG, 2-2 FT) while adding four rebounds, three blocks and a steal in 28 minutes off the bench during Monday's 114-98 loss to the Nuggets.

EDGE Analysis

The Kings continue to shuffle their frontcourt around -- the current starting five featured Zach Randolph at center and Skal Labissiere at power forward -- and Koufos is starting to benefit, averaging 27.7 minutes over the last three games. He isn't yet turning that court time into consistent production, averaging only 10.0 points, 6.0 boards, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks over that stretch, but Monday's performance may be the beginning of a strong run for the veteran.

Koufos managed eight points (3-6 FG, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, three steals and one block across 18 minutes in Thursday's 114-106 loss to the Pelicans.

EDGE Analysis

Koufos has quietly put together a pair of stat-sheet-stuffing efforts off the bench in the last two games, averaging 7.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.0 blocks across a modest 20.0 minutes in those contests. Starting center Willie Cauley-Stein has cooled off after strong performances in the first two contests, with Koufos actually outperforming him on the boards in notably lesser playing time over the last pair of games. That said, it remains to be seen if head coach Dave Joerger deems it necessary to have the two trade places on the depth chart. Irrespective of whether he remains on the first or second unit, Koufos could serve as a sneaky source of scoring and rebounds on the back of the roster for owners in fairly deep formats.

Koufos (rest) tallied two points (1-4 FG), 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks across 22 minutes in Thursday's 104-87 preseason loss to the Clippers.

EDGE Analysis

While he did very little on the scoring front, Koufos was a force on the boards, boosting his rebound total for the second straight game in the process. Koufos has only put up 11 shot attempts through three exhibitions and played no more than Thursday's 22 minutes, an amount of playing time that could be indicative of what his typical regular-season allotment might be. Koufos certainly has the ability to be serviceable offensively, but he figures to cede plenty of minutes to the younger Willie Cauley-Stein on the majority of nights.

Koufos will sit out Monday's preseason game against the Trail Blazers for rest, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Koufos joins five other Kings players getting the night off for rest, as coach Dave Joerger attempts to give his regular contributors some extra time off prior to the regular season grind. With Koufos and Zach Randolph (rest) out, look for Willie Cauley-Stein and Skal Labissiere to see the bulk of the frontcourt workload.

Koufas recorded four points (2-4 FG), seven rebounds and one assist across 19 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Lakers.

EDGE Analysis

Even though Koufas was coming off a Friday night where he was held out to rest, the Kings still limited the veteran's minutes off the bench Sunday, with Willie Cauley-Stein and Ska Labissiere handling center duties for the most part. Koufas is expected to play a similar reserve role this season with the Kings boasting two young, impressive talents in the frontcourt.

Koufos will be rested for the Kings' season finale Wednesday against the Clippers, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Koufos will rest for the seventh consecutive game to conclude the season, and he'll be joined on the sideline by Darren Collison (migraine), Ty Lawson (rest). Garrett Temple (rest). and Anthony Tolliver (personal), leaving the Kings rather shorthanded. Expect Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis to again see extended minutes in Koufos' absence.

Koufos has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rockets for rest, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Kings are resting a slew of players Sunday, including Koufos, Arron Afflalo, Darren Collison and Tyreke Evans. With Koufos out specifically, Willie Cauley-Stein should draw another start at center, with Skal Labissier and Georgios Papgiannis also picking up a few extra minutes.

Koufos will not play in Friday's game against the Lakers for rest purposes, Sean Cunningham of ABC10 in Sacramento reports.

EDGE Analysis

Koufos has been resting for majority of the final stretch of the regular season, as he has now been absent from six of the last eight games. This has opened up minutes for both Willie Cauley-Stein, Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis, and all three will continue to see extended time on the floor in Koufos' absence.
