Willy Hernangomez started for Cody Zeller (broken hand) on Wednesday and posted eight points on 3-of-8 shooting with 10 rebounds, one assist and one block in 18 minutes on the floor.
The Hornets utilized Marvin Williams at center during spots when they went "ultra-small," so that's something we might see moving forward. The 18 minutes of playing time was not all too inspiring but at least we know he's got a role in the rotation. He can and will heat up sooner or later. Now is the time to be patient.
