Huerter was held scoreless in six minutes of Thursday’s 101-96 road win against the Brooklyn Nets. He left the game with an injury after limping after a fumble in the first quarter.
The victory clinched the Kings’ first winning season since 2005-06 as they inch closer to their first playoff berth since that season.
In addition to leading the Kings in 3-pointers (180), Huerter is fourth on the team this season in scoring (15.0 ppg) and is averaging 3.2 rpg, 2.9 apg and 1.1 spg. He is shooting career bests both overall (48.7%) and from 3-point range (40.8%) in 2022-23, his first with the Kings after coming through an offseason trade with the Atlanta Hawks.
