Charlotte Hornets

Eastern Southeast

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.

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.

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.

Fantasy Impact: Rozier is out tonight with an illness. Coach James Borrego joked that one of the Martin twins will start in Rozier’s place, and laughed, “whichever one I see first.” Devonte’ Graham should see a spike in usage as well with Rozier out.

Category: Injury Updates

Willy Hernangomez totaled three points (1-2 FG, 0-0 3PT, 1-2 FT), eleven rebounds, and one assist in 18 minutes in the Hornets’ 108-99 win against the Rockets on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Hernangomez, in limited minutes, was able to grab 11 rebounds against the Rockets this past Saturday. Although his shooting has been inconsistent in his previous five games, he has been able to snatch five or more rebounds within the same period. His minutes have been hit or miss recently, making him a risky play. Even though he is a must-roster in deep-league play, owners should still monitor the match-up before making a decision on whether to start him or not.

Bismack Biyombo totaled eight points (2-8 FG, 0-0 3PT, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 22 minutes in the Hornets’ 93-85 loss to the Bucks on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Although he put up a below-average shooting night, Biyombo was still able to put together a valuable line as he collected nine rebounds, while also adding a couple assists and blocks. On the year he has averaged 7.5 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 0.9 assists. Biyombo is a good source of value; however, he is best reserved for deep-league play at best, as his inconsistency makes him a high-risk high-reward asset.

Per Shams Charania, Malik Monk has been suspended by the NBA for violating the Anti-Drug Program. The suspension will begin tonight, and Monk will remain out until he is determined to be in full compliance with the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: An indefinite suspension is definitely a new one. Monk will be out until further notice, and this should bode well for Charlotte backcourt starters Devonte’ Graham and Terry Rozier. This should also open up additional opportunities for Caleb and Cody Martin off the bench.

Marvin Williams failed to log any minutes in Tuesday’s 125-110 loss to the Rockets. The DNP status was not due to any injury but was a personnel decision made by the coach.

Fantasy Impact: Williams' DNP designation doesn't come as a surprise, as he has failed to produce in many of his recent games. Being that the Hornets' have quickly played themselves out of the playoff picture, the focus will be on building towards the future and evaluating the potential of the young talent they currently have. Williams doesn't fit in this picture. Outside of a rare perfect scenario where Williams can pull together a solid game, he should not count as any sustainable value producer on your team. It is best to fade him in year-long play; however, he could be a greatly under-owned Hail Mary target for daily large field tournament play given the right opponent and opportunity.

Dwayne Bacon provided two points (2-2 FT) and a rebound over 11 minutes in the Hornets’ 125-110 loss to the Rockets on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Bacon continues to play a small role off the bench for Charlotte, making minimal contributions across te stat sheet in his third NBA season. He’s averaging 6.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists across 17.9 minutes and doesn’t need to be rostered outside the deepest of leagues.

Category: Game Recaps

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist received a DNP-CD in Tuesday’s 125-110 loss to the Rockets.

Fantasy Impact: MKG has appeared in just one contest since Dec. 29, and he’s completely fallen out of the Hornets’ rotation. Charlotte will likely continue to give its young talent big minutes at the expense of underwhelming veterans like Kidd-Gilchrist, and the Kentucky product has no place on fantasy rosters, even in the deepest of leagues.

Category: Game Recaps

Nic Batum didn’t see the court in Tuesday’s 125-110 loss to the Rockets.

Fantasy Impact: Batum has failed to log any minutes over the Hornets’ last four games, and his absence has coincided with quality play from both Miles Bridges and Willy Hernangomez. Batum is unlikely to provide much fantasy value the rest of the way.

The Hornets made a move to sign 6-foot-10 forward Ray Spalding. Spalding, No. 56 overall draft pick for the 76ers in 2018, has spent this season with the G Leagues' Rio Grande Valley Vipers. (Source: Charlotte Observer)

Fantasy Impact: In the 2018-2019 season Spalding averaged 3.9 points a game (25-47 PTS, 0-3 3PTS, 4-12 FT), 3.4 rebounds, 0.4 assists, 0.6 blocks, 0.6 steals, 1.6 fouls, and 0.6 turnovers. Spalding just might have found himself in the right spot at the right time. The Hornets are building towards the future, and as coach James Borrego puts it, the team is "going to be committed to playing the young guys now more than ever." This provides Spalding the chance to compete for a home in the NBA. He has shown a knack for grabbing rebounds, which would help tremendously as the Hornets are ranked 26th in the league, averaging on 43.1 rebounds a game. Seeing that the Hornets are taking the time to extract the top talent from their players, Spalding may be worth being on your radar for deep league play.
