Justin James
23-Year-Old GuardG
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Selected with the 40th overall pick in the 2019 Draft, James joins the up-and-coming Kings. A 6-foot-7, 183-pound senior out of Wyoming, James was selected to the Mountain West All-Conference First Team (Media) last season. He saw 38.2 minutes per game and averaged 22.1 points on 17.4 shots, 8.5 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.5 steals. While his three-pointer is a work in progress (33.5 percent for his collegiate career), James was adept at getting to the free-throw line, taking 8.4 freebies per game and making them at a 74.1 percent clip. In six summer league games, he racked up 9.2 points on 6.5 shots, 4.2 rebounds and 1.5 assists across 22 minutes per contest. It appears James may end up buried on Sacramento's depth chart, and he'll have to beat out Bogdan Bogdanovic and Trevor Ariza for any hope of seeing consistent run as a backup. Considering that's unlikely, it's possible James ends up in the G League for much of the 2019-20 campaign. Read Past Outlooks

Knee is '100 percent' healthy

July 14, 2020
James (kneecap) shared that his knee is "100 percent" healthy, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
ANALYSIS
James needed a PRP injection in his knee in mid-March, and he's since recovered from the tendinitis that was ailing him. His role with the team will likely still be relatively small during the resumed season. He's played 218 minutes across 33 games, totaling 85 points, 30 rebounds, 16 assists, nine blocks and six steals.
