Charlotte Hornets

Eastern Southeast

Kemba Walker put in 29 points, eight dimes and six rebounds in 36 minutes of game action on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Walker is trying to will his team into the playoffs here as he's scored 36.0 points per game so far in April. Walker should stay hot even if his team doesn't make it to the show.

Fantasy Impact: With Zeller, Williams, and MKG out, Frank Kaminsky is shaping up as a solid option in DFS.

Marvin Williams has been ruled out for the third game in a row due to a right foot strain. Frank Kaminsky and Willy Hernangomez will pick up more minutes. (Source: Hornets PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kaminsky is now at least DFS worthy with both Williams and MKG out.

Nicolas Batum came off the bench to play 16 minutes on Friday against the Raptors. He made his only shot from three-point range for three points while adding a steal in the 113-111 win.

Fantasy Impact: Batum has only played in two of the Hornets last eight games. He can be left off fantasy rosters for the final days of the regular season.

Jeremy Lamb had 23 points on 9-of-16 shooting on Monday against the Jazz. In 31 minutes off the bench, he had four rebounds, a three-pointer and a steal in the loss.

Fantasy Impact: The 23-point effort on Monday was Lamb's highest scoring output over his last seven games which has included only reaching single-digits three times. If Lamb isn't scoring his fantasy value is minimal.

Willy Hernangomez had 10 points and seven rebounds in 23 minutes on Thursday against the Timberwolves. He shot 5-of-6 from the field in the 113-106 win.

Fantasy Impact: Hernangomez saw elevated minutes off the bench on Thursday with Cody Zeller still out. His minutes and fantasy production are too limited to roster in any leagues.

Dwayne Bacon saw a more prominant role on Tuesday with MKG leaving the game early with an injury. Bacon scored 13 points in 28 minutes on just 30 percent shooting. Bacon added just three rebounds.

Fantasy Impact: Bacon could be in line for more minutes with MKG out on Thursday so he's worth a look as a punt play in daily.

Miles Bridges grabbed a career-best 10 rebounds in Tuesday's game versus the 76ers while tieing a team-high with 29 minutes. Bridges scored eight points on 40 percent shooting but also added two steals and two assists.

Fantasy Impact: Bridges will be in the starting lineup the rest of the season as the Hornets are on the outside looking in on the playoff picture and Cody Zeller remains out. With MKG out on Thursday, Bridges gets a boost.

Tony Parker (rest) will not take the court for the Hornets when they take on the Sixers on Tuesday. (Source: Hornets PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Parker is likely to see a few more rest days down the stretch, especially if his team falls even further out of contention. Malik Monk will benefit but he's not really on the fantasy radar.

Bismack Biyombo will start when the Hornets take on the Wizards on Friday. (Source: Hornets on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Cody Zeller out Biyombo should get most of the minutes left behind. Biyombo could be a punt play on DFS but MKG and Marvin Williams will still see big minutes.

Malik Monk had 10 points on 3-of-12 shooting Monday night against the Rockets. He made a pair of three-pointers while adding five rebounds, an assist, and a steal in 26 minutes.

Fantasy Impact: Monk got some extra playing time on Monday with Nicolas Batum (eye) and a host of other Hornets out. He didn't do much with the opportunity and can continue to be ignored in fantasy circles.

Frank Kaminsky led the Hornets in scoring by dropping 20 points over 23 minutes in the Hornets’ crucial loss to the Heat that dropped them out of the playoffs standing.

Fantasy Impact: Kaminsky has been getting a decent run recently and performances like this may lead to him taking more of Cody Zeller’s minutes during this playoff race.

Devonte Graham goes 3-of-9 from the field for 10 points with eight assists and three rebounds on versus Nuggets on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Graham got the start again on Saturday night and played well in his 26 minutes. When Jeremy Lamb comes back from injury things could change, but for now Graham is worth a hold and maybe even a start as his value is trending upward.
