Jaxson Hayes scored 19 points (8-16 FG, 0-1 3PT, 3-4 FT) with eight rebounds, three assists, a steal, three blocks, and a turnover across 24 minutes during Friday's 109-107 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.
Hayes earned extended minutes off the bench with injuries to Zion Williamson (finger) and Steven Adams (toe) against the 76ers during Friday's game. The 20-year old seven-footer shot 50 FG% while collecting eight boards and forcing three steals to return solid value in fantasy lineups. Hayes is only a relevant fantasy play if injuries in the Pelicans' front-court continue, so make sure to monitor Zion and Adams' injuries heading into Sunday's road game against the Charlotte Hornets.
New Orleans center Jaxson Hayes has been listed as questionable with a wrist injury ahead of the Pelicans game Monday against Boston.
If Hayes misses a second game in a row, Willy Hernangomez would see more opportunity with the second unit behind Steven Adams.
Jaxson Hayes posted 15 points (4-6 FG, 7-7 FT), five rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one turnover in 19 minutes during Tuesday's win over the Lakers.
Hayes did most of his damage in garbage time as the Pelicans made light work of the Lakers missing LeBron James and Anthony Davis. While it does appear that he's moved past Willy Hernangomez in the pecking order, Steven Adams continues to see heavy minutes at the center spot and caps the fantasy upside of Hayes going forward.
Jaxson Hayes scored 17 points (6-6 FG, 5-5 FT), along with three rebounds, one assist, one rebound, one steal, and one blocked shot in 24 minutes of play on Sunday.
Hayes notched a perfect night from the field and from the charity stripe on Sunday, scoring a season-high 17 points en route to a victory over the Clippers. Although Hayes has only notched 13.1 minutes per game on the season, he has been extremely efficient when he's been on the floor, shooting 72.9% from the field on the season. Regardless, without a foreseeable increase in playing time, Hayes should be considered a streaming option at best.
Jaxson Hayes produced 10 points (5-5 FG, 0-1 FT), one rebound, and three blocks in 11 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Bulls.
Hayes saw some extra minutes with Steven Adams only seeing 21 minutes in this one and was productive during his time on the court. This was the first time in a while in which Hayes received playing time so he should be left on waivers ahead of Thursday's game against the Heat.
