Dwayne Bacon quiet in loss to Nuggets

Dwayne Bacon totaled two points (1-5 FG, 0-3 3PT, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, three assists, zero steals, zero blocks, three fouls, and one turnover in 24 minutes of play in the Hornets’ 100 – 86 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

In 24 minutes of play, Bacon was unable to contribute much-needed production off the bench in the loss to the Nuggets. Although Bacon is capable of providing game-winning stat lines for the Hornets, his potential was not on display this past Wednesday. Unfortunately, Bacon has produced more of these low-floor games than not. For fantasy purposes, it would be best to keep Bacon out of your line-up until he shows that he can consistently perform at a higher level.

Dwayne Bacon drops team-high 24 points in Sunday's loss to the Suns

Dwayne Bacon scored a team-high 24 points (10-15 FG, 2-5 3PT, 2-4 FT) with five rebounds, two assists and one steal across 31 minutes in Sunday's 100-92 loss to the Suns.

Fantasy Impact

Bacon scored double figures for only the second time in his last six games. He is averaging 11.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 triples during that span. Bacon is worth owning in deep-league formats until he starts producing at consistent rate. The Hornets next scheduled game is Monday, away against the Trail Blazers.

Dwayne Bacon fries Cavs with 15 points

Dwayne Bacon went for 15 points (5-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and a steal across 28 minutes in the Hornets’ 109-106 win over the Cavs on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Dwayne has been bringing home the Bacon this week, as he went for his second straight double-digit scoring performance Thursday, hitting his highest point total since Nov. 2. He's seen some increased run as of late, averaging 13.0 points across 23.0 minutes in his last two games, after scoring a combined 21.0 points over 10.3 minutes per game across his last 10. Bacon closed out last season on a bit of a strong run, so there's certainly some upside here if his minutes begin trending up. He's not somewhat to pickup off the waiver wire, unless you're looking for a speculative deep-league points streamer.

Dwayne Bacon ends up with double-digit points against Boston

In Tuesday's 109-92 loss to the Celtics, Dwayne Bacon scored 11 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3PT, 1-2 FT), grabbed three boards, dished out one assist, had one steal, and turned the ball over twice in 18 minutes on the floor.

Fantasy Impact

Bacon scored in the double figures for the first time since early November. He could force his way back into some meaningful minutes somewhere down the road but until then, he's definitely not worth rostering even in the deepest of fantasy leagues right now.

Dwayne Bacon continues to have a very minor role coming off of the bench

In Wednesday's 100-98 loss to the Cavaliers, Dwayne Bacon scored four points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3PT. 2-4 FT), grabbed two boards, dished out one assist, and had one steal in 12 minutes.

Fantasy Impact

It's been well over a month now since Bacon scored double-digit points twice in a week's span. Bacon's bench role has been very limited since early/mid-November, so he still has absolutely no fantasy value. It's best to look elsewhere if you're in need of help even in the deepest of fantasy leagues.
