Kings vs Warriors Fantasy NBA: The Sacramento Kings will enter the game after beating the Hawks rallying around a 37 points outburst by Da’Aaron Fox. Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors will hit the floor after losing to the Sixers despite a 20 points double-double by Kelly Oubre. A lineup related to SAC vs GSW Dream11 will be given at the end of the article.
Kings’ season: Sacramento is in the rebuilding phase, and after acquiring rookie Tyrese Haliburton, they may have a promising core. Richuan Holmes has made a niche as their starting center and even though they have struggled to gather wins, they do have a solid lineup that consists of Buddy Hield and Marvin Bagley. Harrison Barnes provides them decent output at the SF spot but they may pull some moves before the trade deadline.
Warriors season: Golden State is not the same squad that won multiple championships and since the departure of Kevin Durant and the injury to Klay Thompson. They have depended heavily upon Curry to generate offense but recently, Draymond Green and Kelly Oubre have stepped up to the plate. Now that Curry is out, their record may take a further hit. The Warriors may need to make some moves if they are to enter the Playoffs.

PFP(Projected Fantasy Points): 46
The swiper has been impressive in scoring the ball and despite his team struggling, he has produced an incredible season. His playmaking abilities also make him an impressive all-around offensive player and he is well adorned to perform the role of a primary scorer for his team. The 23-year-old is averaging a stunning 28.6 PPG and 1.7 SPG in March. He can be elected as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA fantasy scenario.
Kelly Oubre Jr.
After a poor start to the season and facing struggles from the field, Kelly has improved his Field Goal % to a respectable 43%. Oubre will be key in the game with Curry out and the Warriors may expect another 20+ points night from him.
Wiggins is scoring in the 15-20 Points range this season and has proven to be a reliable option on the scoring front. In the month of March, he has upped his scoring and has even mustered a 40 points game, averaging 19.9 PPG and 1.4 SPG throughout the month. He also leads the team in a number of blocks this season.
Barnes has been a reliant scorer at the Forward position and he is also a great rebounder while being a decent passer. Barnes’ numbers have been down prior to previous years and that has affected his team’s performances too. He is averaging 7.7 RPG and 4.0 APG this month.
Buddy Hield: PPG: 16.8 RPG: 4.6 APG: 3.3 TPG: 1.7 PFP: 35

Draymond Green: PPG: 6.1 APG: 8.4 RPG: 6.6 SPG: 1.4 TPG: 2.8 PFP: 30
Green is not an effective scorer on most nights but he is an effective playmaker, rebounder, and defender on a consistent basis. He is averaging 8.8 RPG and 1.8 SPG this month
Richuan Holmes: PPG: 14.0 RPG: 8.8 BPG: 1.6 TPG: 1.4 PFP: 35
