Game Recaps

Willy Hernangomez totaled six points (2-4 FG, 0-0 3PT, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, and one assist in nine minutes in the Hornets’ 119-80 loss to the Pacers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: It wasn’t a pretty night for the Hornets this past Tuesday, and the same can certainly be said for Hernangomez as he saw less than ten minutes of playing time for the first time since January 24th. Just like the team as a whole, he was unable to get anything going, and for the third game in a row failed to put up a double-digit scoring effort. Although his play has been suspect so far in February, Hernangomez still has the skills to produce value in a variety of different ways. As of now, he is no more than a speculative add for deep-league play until further notice.

Daniel Theis scored 10 points on 4-for-9 shooting with nine rebounds and three assists over 23 minutes as the Celtics defeated the Blazers on Tuesday by a 118-106 score.

Fantasy Impact: Theis has been putting up some strong numbers and over his last six games is averaging 14.5 points and 9.8 rebounds over 27.5 minutes played. The 27-year-old center is worth adding in 12-14 team fantasy leagues for owners needing big man stats.

Bismack Biyombo totaled two points (1-1 FG, 0-0 3PT, 0-0 FT) and five rebounds in 12 minutes in the Hornets’ 119-80 loss to the Pacers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Biyombo saw his night become highly limited as he got into foul trouble preventing him from putting up a meaningful stat-line. Although he has shown that he can be a solid contributor, Biyombo has failed to top 20 minutes of play in four of his last five games and has been unable to put together any compelling performances that instill confidence in those considering him a solid value option for deep-league play. Barring an injury to Cody Zeller, it would be best that Biyombo is kept on the sideline until further notice.

Brad Wanamaker scored 13 points on 4-for-6 shooting with five rebounds, four assists, two three-pointers, and one steal in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 118-106 victory over Portland.

Fantasy Impact: Wanamaker took advantage of some extra playing time on Tuesday with Kemba Walker out with a knee injury. Walker could miss the game on Wednesday as well which means more run and usage for Wanamaker but he is only worth adding in deeper fantasy formats.

Caleb Martin totaled eleven points (4-10 FG, 3-4 3PT, 0-0 FT), three rebounds, two assists, and one block in 26 minutes in the Hornets’ 119-80 loss to the Pacers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Martin saw the floor for a season-high 26 minutes and took advantage of the opportunity by putting on a compelling shooting performance in which he shot 40 percent from the floor and 75 percent from beyond the arc. The Hornets seem to be doing their due diligence in seeing what their talent has to offer, Martin is in no way worth, at this time, an add in any format; however, it is worth keeping an eye out for how the Hornets will be using him as he could potentially be a source of untapped value for deep league play simply due to his increased playing time.

Cody Martin totaled nine points (3-12 FG, 0-4 3PT, 3-5 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 30 minutes in the Hornets’ 119-80 loss to the Pacers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Martin saw 30 minutes of playing time this past Tuesday against the Pacers, however, was unable to capitalize on the opportunity. He was miserable from the floor and from beyond the arc, putting up a poor stat-line that was somewhat salvaged by his relatively solid play in the other statistical categories. Although Martin has little fantasy relevance at this time it is worth pointing out that he is having the best statistical month of play this season; he is averaging 7.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.0 steals per game while averaging a season-high 27.3 minutes per game. The rookie could find himself in a position where he begins to play all the minutes he can handle, especially with the increasingly poor play of the Hornets, if this is the case and if you are looking for an untapped source of value you may want to look his way, this, however, is reserved for deep league fantasy play.

Jalen McDaniels totaled four points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3PT, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, and two steals in 19 minutes in the Hornets’ 119-80 loss to the Pacers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: McDaniels put up his worst shooting night this past Tuesday against the Pacers in which he went 20 percent from the floor and 33.3 percent from beyond the arc. Although he added five rebounds to his otherwise miserable stat-line, McDaniels failed to build upon his previous performances. The rookie has shown a good amount of promise in his limited play this season; however, as of now, he should be no more than a speculative blimp on your fantasy radar for possible deep-league play.

Cody Zeller totaled nine points (4-9 FG, 0-1 3PT, 1-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 24 minutes in the Hornets’ 119-80 loss to the Pacers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: It wasn’t a pretty night for the Hornets as a whole this past Tuesday, and Zeller did very little to help their cause against the Pacers. Although he put up a below-average stat line, he remains consistent in his play and offers a relatively high floor any given night. On the year he is averaging 11.1 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 1.5 assists. He is still a strong play on most nights and should remain an active asset on your fantasy roster until further notice.

Thaddeus Young put up eight points (3-8 FG, 2-3 3PT), four assists, three rebounds, and a steal over 30 minutes in Tuesday's 124-122 loss to the Thunder.

Fantasy Impact: Young has has started in place of the injured Lauri Markkanen for the last 13 games and up until Tuesday's performance he had clocked double-digit scoring efforts in each contest. Rumors are floating that Markkanen should be back by the end of the month which would most likely result in Young being relegated to the bench and taking a big blow to his fantasy value. The veteran forward showed that he can step up when his number is called but due to lack of opportunity he's best left on your league's waiver wire once Markkanen returns.

Harry Giles III supplied 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, and one steal across 23 minutes of play Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Giles has now put up back-to-back solid fantasy outings. His ceiling is still limited and he's likely to lose production when Marvin Bagley and Richaun Holmes ultimately return, but he's a viable fantasy option in the meantime.

Bogdan Bogdanovic put up 17 points (6-10 FG, 2-5 3PT, 3-4 FT), one rebound, three assists, and two steals across 31 minutes of play Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Bogdanovic is a volatile fantasy option on a nightly basis as he continues to share time with Buddy Hield. It seems whichever guard gets the hotter hand will get the minutes and fantasy production.

De'Aaron Fox supplied 21 points (8-15 FG, 1-3 3PT, 4-9 FT), two rebounds, five assists, one steal, and one block across 31 minutes of play Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Fox has bow put up at least 20 points in all three games since the All-Star break, making him a fine option at point guard in all fantasy formats. His next game comes Thursday night in Oklahoma City.

Harrison Barnes scored 21 points (9-12 FG, 2-4 3PT, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, and one assist over a team-high 37 minutes of play Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Barnes continues to have a solid fantasy floor based on his high minutes total most nights. He doesn't do enough to warrant auto-start consideration but can be effectively used in good matchups or as a lineup filler.

Buddy Hield scored 19 points (6-15 FG, 5-10 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with six rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 25 minutes of play off the bench Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Hield continues to be a steady source of points off the bench for the Kings. He should be in fantasy lineups despite the fact that he isn't in Sacramento's starting lineup on a nightly basis.

Kyle Kuzma recorded nine points (4-10 FG, 0-3 3PT, 1-1 FT), one rebound, and one steal in 12 minutes of play off the bench Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: It's been three weeks since Kuzma has recorded double-digit rebounds. The third-year forward appears to have no fantasy relevance as long as Anthony Davis remains healthy.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope recorded 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-7 3PT, 0-2 FT), one rebound, one assist, and two steals in 29 minutes of play off the bench Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Caldwell-Pope is capable of occasionally putting up a strong fantasy performance like he did Tuesday but they are too few and far between to trust in season-long fantasy leagues.

Nicolo Melli compiled 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3PT), six rebounds, two assists, and one block in 27 minutes off the bench Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Melli has now put up double-digit points off the bench in all three games since the All-Star break. The untraditional rookie is making a case for fantasy consideration in deeper leagues.

Lonzo Ball supplied ten points (4-11 FG, 2-6 3PT), eight rebounds, and eight assists over 30 minutes of play Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Ball isn't a top-end scoring option but he consistently logs enough rebounds and assists to remain fantasy relevant. His next game comes Friday against the lowly Cavs.

Enes Kanter scored four points on 1-for-3 shooting with five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 17 minutes during Tuesday's 118-106 victory over the Trail Blazers.

Fantasy Impact: Kanter has been struggling to find playing time in recent games and over the last six contests is averaging 2.7 points and 5.5 rebounds over 12.7 minutes. Kanter can be dropped in standard leagues for hot big man on the waiver wire.

Anfernee Simons finished with nine points on 3-for-11 shooting with three assists, one rebound, one three-pointer and one steal in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 118-106 loss to Boston.

Fantasy Impact: Simons continues to be inconsistent in his production in his second year in the league. Simons is averaging 9.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists on the season and is only worth owning in deeper leagues by fantasy owners.
