Winning Player of the Week is not quite as prestigious as taking home one of the bigger awards at the end of the season, but it is still a nice recognition.

Every week, on Monday, the league announces a Player of the Week for each conference, recognizing outstanding play during the previous week.

This list will be updated every week, so check back regularly to see which players are currently on fire and playing well.

De’Aaron Fox is playing his best basketball yet

De'Aaron Fox finally put the league on notice last season. Making his first All-Star game, bringing the Kings back to the playoffs, and winning the first-ever Clutch Player of the Year award, he finally ascended to star status.

Last season, Fox only won one Western Conference Player of the Week award. He already doubled that number in just the first six weeks of the season, and more might be on the way. The Kings point guard is playing some of the best basketball of his career after all.

Who else on the Kings has a chance to win Western Conference Player of the Week?

Technically, every Kings player in the rotation could win the award. The two prime candidates are Domantas Sabonis and Malik Monk, however. Once Keegan Murray consistently finds his shot, his name can be added to the list.

Sabonis is a walking double-double, impacting the game in almost every aspect. He was named Western Conference Player of the Week three times last season and might collect the honor again this season.

Monk is more of a long shot, but he can get hot fast and go on a scoring tear. If he does that for an entire week in his sixth-man duties for the Kings, his name should at least be in the conversation.

So far, every winner across both conferences has been a starter, however.
