    Marvin Williams (illness) has been ruled out of Wednesday's preseason game vs. the Pistons.

    Williams had a doubtful tag previously so it was never expected that he would suit up. Williams should be fine to play once the regular season rolls around but is likely going to see his minutes and production decline as the Hornets focus on developing their young talent. Look for Miles Bridges and P.J. Washington to get a lot of run in this preseason finale.

    Terry Rozier (left knee) will not play in Wednesday's preseason finale vs. the Pistons.

    Rozier is dealing with some tendinitis that will force him to miss the last game of the preseason. It is likely that the Hornets are being extra cautious as the regular season is around the corner. Expect Rozier to start at point guard once the real games start. Devonte' Graham and Malik Monk are two guys to look at for DFS lineups on Wednesday with Graham having the higher upside.

  • Nicolas Batum
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum will miss the Hornets' matchup with the Pistons on Wednesday due to right Achilles soreness.

    The Hornets are hopeful that Batum will be ready for the regular season. Batum could have some value in the late rounds, but he was held to 9.3 points per game last season.

    Cody Martin (right ankle sprain) is now probable to face the Pistons on Wednesday.

    The rookie out of Nevada has missed most of the preseason action but he should get some run tonight. He is someone to monitor in deep (dynasty) leagues, as Charlotte is looking to give plenty of minutes to their young guys this year.

    Marvin Williams is doubtful to face the Pistons on Wednesday due to an illness.

    This is a the preseason finale at home for the Hornets who are expected to use this season as an opportunity to develop their young players. Williams will most likely come off the bench and his fantasy value shall remain limited unless he gets traded at some point during the season.

  • PJ Washington
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    P.J. Washington may be the favorite to start at SF on opening day per Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer.

    P.J. Washington, who had whispers of G League this summer, has put himself in a position to earn a starting job on opening day with Nicolas Batum (sore Achilles) still out. It's no secret the team wants to play their young guys, and the 12th pick in this year's draft is one of those players. Washington is moving up draft boards right now.

    Cody Martin (right ankle sprain) is questionable to face the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Martin has missed too much valuable time to put himself in the early season conversation. Martin will have a chance to get playing time when he gets healthy, but he is not on the fantasy radar to start the year.

    Marvin Williams (illness) is listed as probable vs the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Williams is the elder statesman on a team looking at getting an early lottery pick and develop their young guys. Williams is expected to come off the bench, with a potential trade looming at some point this season.

  • Nicolas Batum
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    The Hornets are listing Nicolas Batum (sore right Achilles) as out for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Batum is starting to look extremely questionable for opening day. With the team already intent on developing their younger guys, there is a chance that Batum doesn't get his starting job back should the injury continue to linger. P.J. Washington is a name to consider towards the end of drafts.

  • Terry Rozier
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Terry Rozier dropped 24 points with seven boards, eight assists, two steals and four 3-pointers against the Grizzlies on Monday.

    Rozier went 9-for-15 from the floor and is the prized player Charlotte signed after losing Kemba Walker to the Celtics in free agency. He's not going to shoot this well during the season, but the volume of his stats will be there and is worth drafting in the middle rounds for owners who can stomach the percentages.

  • Miles Bridges
    SF, Charlotte Hornets

    Miles Bridges scored eight points on 4-of-9 shooting to go with four rebounds, an assist and two blocks in Monday's preseason win over the Grizzlies.

    The Hornets have minimal talent and Bridges is one of the young and promising prospects on this roster. He's athletic enough to deliver defensive stats and the job is his to lose.

  • Dwayne Bacon
    SF, Charlotte Hornets

    Dwayne Bacon led the Hornets in scoring on Monday with 21 points on 7-of-13 shooting to go with three rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers.

    Nicolas Batum (sore right Achilles) sat this one out as well and Bacon should have ample opportunity to put up counting stats. The efficiency won't be this nice and Malik Monk (18 minutes, 10 points, two triples, two rebounds, an assist, two steals and two blocks) will also have a crack at guard minutes.

  • Malik Monk
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Malik Monk (toe) returned to a full practice on Sunday and is expected to play on Monday.

    Monk sat out the second half of Friday's game and has been dealing with a toe injury since early October, but the Hornets don't believe it's a serious injury. With Nic Batum already ruled out, Monk will have a chance at extra minutes and is looking to carve out a real rotation role for the first time in his young career. Consider him a deep-league 3-point specialist to start.

  • Cody Martin
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Martin (right ankle sprain) will not play in Monday's preseason game against the Grizzlies.

    Martin was doubtful for Friday's game before getting downgraded to out, so the fact that he's just straight out might not be a good sign. Regardless, Martin isn't on fantasy radars to start the year.

  • Nicolas Batum
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    The Hornets have already ruled Nicolas Batum (sore right Achilles) out of Monday's preseason game.

    Batum's draft stock is plummeting and although he doesn't anticipate missing any time in the regular season, fantasy players won't feel confident about his status until he's back on the court. The versatile Batum is likely going to see less playing time this season as a result of Charlotte's youth movement so he's a late-round selection in most formats.
