Hayes came off the bench to provide decent production across 20 minutes, collecting seven boards and going four-of-seven from the field to finish with a double-digit outing during New Orleans' season finale. The 20-year old center has shown flashes of excellence throughout his two-year career in New Orleans and could see an increased role heading into next season.

Hayes used his 6'11 frame to collect eight boards and shot 50 FG% to dominate the paint against a smaller Warriors lineup on Friday. The 20-year old center could see a similar opportunity for New Orleans during the team's season finale against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.
Jaxson Hayes scored 18 points (8-11 FG, 2-4 FT) with eight rebounds, a steal, and six blocks across 26 minutes during Sunday's 112-110 win over the Charlotte Hornets.
Hayes was a maniac in the paint, forcing six blocks and shooting an impressive 72 FG% on 11 attempts from the floor during Sunday's win over the Hornets. The seven-footer has seen increased run with Steven Adams (toe) sidelined and should continue to return good value in lineups against the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday.
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.
