Game Recaps

Wayne Ellington scored zero points, had two rebounds, and two assists in nine minutes off the bench in a 136-131 overtime win over the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact: Ellington on the season is averaging 5.1 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 1.2 assists a game. He doesn't score enough or receive enough minutes to warrant using him in fantasy. It is unclear when the next NBA game will be due to the coronavirus.


Frank Ntilikina scored eight points, had four rebounds, and two assists in 23 minutes off the bench in a 136-131 overtime win over the Hawks. 

Fantasy Impact: Ntilikina on the season is averaging 6.3 points, 2.1 rebounds, and three assists a game. He has played better of late averaging 8.7 points during the last 10 games.  It is unclear when the next NBA game will be due to the coronavirus.


Kevin Knox scored 12 points, had three rebounds, and two steals off the bench in a 136-131 overtime win over the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact: Knox on the season is averaging 6.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 0.9 assists a game. He has regressed from last season, where he averaged 12.8 points making his fantasy value low. Due to the coronavirus it is unclear when the next NBA game will be.


Taj Gibson scored nine points, had three rebounds, and three blocks in 20 minutes in a 136-131 overtime win over the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact: Gibson on the season is averaging 6.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 0.8 assists a game. He has played better of late averaging 7.8 points during the last 10 games. It is unclear when the next NBA game will be due to the coronavirus.


Jalen McDaniels totaled five points (1-3 FG, 1-1 3PT, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, and two assists in 29 minutes in the Hornets’ 109-98 win against the Heat on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: McDaniels logged a career-high 29 minutes this past Wednesday against the Heat, however, was unable to do much from a fantasy standpoint outside of corral six rebounds. Although he does little in the scoring department, he has shown some skill at crashing the boards having secured at least one rebound in every game since the beginning of February. McDaniels is averaging 20.8 minutes per game as the primary back-up to PJ Washington and has shown the potential of being able to provide value. However, he has not played well enough consistently to be considered as a value add for your team. He is an easy faded in all formats at this time.


Cody Martin totaled six points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3PT, 0-0 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, one block, and one steal in 32 minutes in the Hornets’ 109-98 win against the Heat on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Martin stuffed the stat-sheet this past Wednesday against the Heat as he was able to make a significant contribution in the rebounding department with eight. His playing time has significantly increased this month, as he is averaging 32.2 minutes per game; however, his inconsistent and conservative game makes him hard to trust in line-ups. His volume of minutes makes Martin interesting enough to keep on your radar for deep-league play, but other than that, he is a fade in most formats.


Miles Bridges totaled 16 points (5-16 FG, 1-4 3PT, 5-6 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, and one block in 35 minutes in the Hornets’ 109-98 win against the Heat on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Bridges was able to put together a nice bounce-back performance against the Heat this past Wednesday, as he scored 16 points and collected eight rebounds. It hasn’t been as dominating of a month for him so far, as he has been more inconsistent in his play. It would be best to take into account Bridges' current consistency woes before considering him an automatic starter in your line-up. He is, however, a must start in deep-league play.


PJ Washington totaled 17 points (7-17 FG, 3-10 3PT, 0-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, one block, and one steal in 36 minutes in the Hornets’ 109-98 win against the Heat on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: It may not have been as efficient of a night for Washington, but he was able to do his part and contribute an impactful line in the Hornets’ comeback victory against the Heat. He was able to score 17 points and stuff every category of the stat-sheet. Washington has picked up his scoring this month, averaging 15.3 points a game, and has also maintained a healthy mark of five rebounds per game. Washington is playing all the minutes he can handle and is being aggressive on the offensive side of the ball. He is a must-start in all formats at this time.


Jae Crowder tallied eight points (3-8 FG, 2-7 3PT) 10 rebounds, five assists and two steals across 31 minutes in Wednesday's 109-98 loss to the Hornets.

Fantasy Impact: Crowder was two points shy of recording his second double-double of the season. He had missed Monday's win over the Wizards due to a concussion. Crowder has cooled down as of late, averaging 4.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks and 1.0 triples in his last three contests. He produces enough in other categories to be owned in all league formats. The NBA is currently suspended and it is unclear at this time when it will resume play.


Duncan Robinson registered 12 points (3-13 FG, 3-13 3PT, 3-3 FT) four rebounds, two assists and two steals across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 109-98 loss to the Hornets.

Fantasy Impact: Robinson entered Wednesday's game red hot from downtown, shooting an incredible 61 percent in his previous four contests. He struggled in Wednesday's loss ,as he was only able to knock down 3-of-13 from beyond the arc. Despite the bad outing, Robinson has been lights out from three-point land in March, burying 30-of-57 triples across five games. He should be owned in all standard leagues. The 25-year old guard will look to rebound from Wednesday's outing once the NBA season resumes.


Cody Zeller scored 14 points (5-8 FG, 1-1 3PT, 3-4 FT), with 11 rebounds, three assists, and one block in 22 minutes in Wednesday night's 109-98 win over Miami.

Fantasy Impact: Zeller only needed 22 minutes tonight to collect his 10th double-double of the season. His minutes have trended down of late, giving more opportunity to Bismack Biyombo and Willy Hernangomez. All three big men are mildly banged up, so Coach James Borrego has them rotating in and out of games. After the game, Zeller shared his thoughts on the indefinite NBA suspension that has taken the league by storm, stating on Twitter, "We're going to make sure that they're (hard working hourly employees and support staff at Charlotte home games) taken care of! Even if I have to pay out of pocket to help out." Nice gesture by Zeller, and hopefully the rest of the NBA family can chip in and help those that will lose valuable paychecks during this unprecedented time.


Kendrick Nunn scored a team-high 24 points (9-15 FG, 6-10 3PT) three assists, two rebounds and two turnovers across 30 minutes in Wednesday's 109-98 loss to the Hornets.

Fantasy Impact: Nunn knocked down a season-high six threes in Wednesday's loss to the Hornets. With Jimmy Butler ruled out, Nunn capitalized on his opportunity by leading the Heat in scoring. He is having a productive March, averaging 13.6 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 3.0 triples across five games. Nunn should be owned in all league formats. He will look to keep the momentum going once the NBA resumes play.


Bam Adebayo amassed 21 points (10-15 FG, 1-2 FT) 10 assists, seven rebounds and three turnovers across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 109-98 loss to the Hornets.

Fantasy Impact: Adebayo has recorded a double-double in four of his last six games. He continues to stuff the stat sheet on a nightly basis, averaging 16.2 points, 10.5 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.3 blocks across 65 games this season. Adebayo is providing top-25 value and could be drafted as early as the second round in 2020 drafts. He will look to continue his strong play once the NBA season resumes.


Caleb Martin scored 19 points (4-12 FG, 3-6 3PT, 8-8 FT), with seven rebounds, three assists, four steals, and one turnover in 35 minutes off the bench in Wednesday night's 109-98 win over the Heat.

Fantasy Impact: That's two straight very impressive games for Martin off the bench. He's seen 35+ minutes in both games, while recording 23 and 19 points to go along with three and four steals respectively. It looks like Coach James Borrego has and will continue to unleash both Caleb and Cody Martin in what has become an eight-man rotation for the Hornets. Both Martins will have to wait indefinitely to put on more strong performances, as the NBA has suspended the season indefinitely due to Utah C Rudy Gobert testing positive for COVID-19. On the suspension, Coach Borrego said, "This is new territory for all of us."


Devonte' Graham scored a game-high 30 points on 11-19 shooting from the field, with one rebound, six assists, one steal, five turnovers, and eight triples in 36 minutes as Charlotte defeats Miami 109-98 on Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Graham has been trending up the last four contests, scoring 24, 23, 27, and now 30 points in those games. He shoots a ton of threes, and as long as he's hitting at a decent clip, he's providing his fantasy owners with a ton of value between three-balls and assists. Graham will unfortunately have his hot streak halted as the NBA has suspended the season indefinitely after Jazz C Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus Wednesday night.


Bobby Portis scored seven points, had two rebounds, and two assists off the bench in a 136-131 overtime win over the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact: Portis on the season is averaging 10.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.5 assists a game. He has played well of late averaging 13 points during the last 10 games. It is unclear when the next NBA game will be due to the coronavirus.


Maurice Harkless provided 14 points (6-13 FG, 0-4 3PT, 2-3 FT) six rebounds, six assists and one steal across 41 minutes in Wednesday’s 136-131 win over the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact: Harkless has scored double figures only twice across six games during the month of March. He is averaging 6.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists during that span. Despite starting, Harkless does not produce enough to be considered in standard leagues. The NBA is currently suspended and it is unclear at this time when it will resume play.


Elfrid Payton compiled 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-4 FT) 12 assists, five rebounds, four steals and one block across 34 minutes in Wednesday’s 136-131 win over the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact: Payton recorded his ninth double-double of the year in Wednesday’s win. He continues to stuff the stat sheet on a nightly basis, averaging 12.0 points, 5.7 rebounds, 7.5 assists and 1.3 steals across six games in March. Payton should be owned in all league formats. The 26-year old guard will look to continue to rack up categories once the NBA resumes play.


RJ Barrett totaled 26 points (9-14 FG, 2-5 3PT, 6-6 FT) five rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block across 39 minutes in Wednesday’s 136-131 win over the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact: Barrett has now scored 26 points or more in two of his last six contests. He has played well in March, averaging 18.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.5 triples across six games in March. Barrett is much better fantasy option in point leagues due to his pedestrian shooting percentages. With his recent stretch, Barrett is a solid option in all league formats. He will look to keep up his strong play once the NBA resumes play.


Julius Randle scored a team-high 33 points (13-22 FG, 3-6 3PT, 4-4 FT) with 11 rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal across 33 minutes in Wednesday’s 136-131 win over the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact: Randle has recorded a double-double in six of his last eight contests. He has been on a roll lately, averaging 22.9 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 triples during that stretch. Randle is having a career-year, but his season is on hold for now until the NBA resumes play.
