  • Jeremy Lamb - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Jeremy Lamb was the only Hornet to have success on offense in Sunday's loss, going for 21 points with four rebounds, four steals and three 3-pointers.

    Lamb's move to the bench might've actually helped him out a bit, and he's thriving as the lead dog on that second unit. Starter Miles Bridges only logged 10 minutes today and Lamb is setting himself up for a nice payday from someone this summer. He's been a middle-round option without many blips this year.

  • Kemba Walker - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Kemba Walker was off his game in Sunday's bad loss, going 4-of-16 from the field for 10 points, four rebounds, four assists, a steal and two 3-pointers.

    Charlotte was stuck in the mud in this game and missed a big chance to gain ground on Miami in the playoff race. Walker went 14-for-20 in Monday's loss to the Rockets and is an atrocious 15-for-46 in the two games since. Fantasy owners just have to hope that Kemba can get back on track as the Hornets scrap for their playoff lives.

  • Frank Kaminsky - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Frank Kaminsky logged 30 minutes on Sunday afternoon but shot 3-of-10 from the field, saving his 13-point day with a 7-of-9 mark at the charity stripe.

    The Hornets couldn't get anything going offensively in this one, and Kaminsky was no exception. Bismack Biyombo started but only posted two points, six rebounds and a block in his 17 minutes. Willy Hernangomez, meanwhile, received a DNP-CD.

  • Nicolas Batum - G/F - Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum finished Sunday's ugly loss with 12 points on 3-of-11 shooting and seven rebounds in 35 minutes.

    In a game where the Hornets had 75 points, you can guess that nobody really had a good showing. Batum scored 10 of his points in the third quarter but didn't get anything in the fourth, where Charlotte was outscore 32-15. Marvin Williams had two points on 1-for-7 shooting but at least managed four rebounds and three blocks.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (left knee soreness) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Heat, and Bismack Biyombo will start in his place.

    This was the same arrangement from Friday night, though things might change in the reserve group since Miami has much larger frontcourt players than the Wizards. Willy Hernangomez should be able to get some playing time today but that's a coin flip, so if you're targeting any big off Charlotte's bench it should be Frank Kaminsky.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (left knee soreness) is doubtful to play on Sunday against the Heat.

    Zeller sat out on Friday night, with Bismack Biyombo making the start and Frank Kaminsky playing additional minutes off the bench. The matchup against the small-ball Wizards prevented Willy Hernangomez from getting any minutes, but perhaps that will change against a Heat squad that features two true centers.

  • Kemba Walker - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Kemba Walker hit just 11-of-30 shots from the field but still managed 28 points, three 3s, five rebounds, four dimes, three steals, a block and three turnovers in Friday’s win over the Wizards.

    Walker had been fading a bit over the last few weeks so it was good to see him fill it up. Tony Parker chipped in 16 points, three assists, a steal and an uncharacteristic two treys in the win.

  • Jeremy Lamb - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Jeremy Lamb kept up his strong play off the bench with 18 points, three 3s, eight rebounds, two steals and a block in Friday's win over the Wizards.

    Lamb has been even better coming off the bench with top-60 value so owners aren't complaining at all. Keep rolling with him.

  • Nicolas Batum - G/F - Charlotte Hornets

    Nic Batum (eye) returned from a one-game absence and scored 16 points to go with four 3s, six assists, five rebounds, a steal and a block in Friday’s road win over the Wizards.

    Batum has been rolling with top-60 value over the last two months so hopefully you had him in your lineup. Dwayne Bacon added 13 points and a trey in the win.

  • Nicolas Batum - G/F - Charlotte Hornets

    Nic Batum (eye), Marvin Williams (illness) and Bismack Biyombo will start on Friday vs. the Wizards.

    Biyombo will draw the start for Cody Zeller (knee) while Batum and Williams will rejoin the starting lineup after missing a game each to injury.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (left knee strain) will not play on Friday vs. the Wizards while Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (left knee soreness) is available.

    Frank Kaminsky remains the prime beneficiary although Willy Hernangomez, who started the last game Zeller missed, could be a nice play in DFS.

  • Nicolas Batum - G/F - Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum (eye) is not on injury report ahead of Friday's game against the Wizards.

    Batum will return to getting the 37.5 mpg he's received over the last month, in a big game with playoff implications. Batum can safely be inserted back into lineups.

  • Marvin Williams - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Marvin Williams (illness) is not on injury report for Friday's game against the Wizards.

    Williams will wind up missing just the one game with the illness. Williams gets a nice matchup against the Wizards and can safely be plugged back into lineups.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (left knee strain) is probable for Friday's game against the Wizards.

    It looks like MKG will look to resume his role behind Marvin Williams off the bench. MKG can be ignored in fantasy.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (knee) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Wizards.

    Frank Kaminsky will continue to see a minutes and usage bump with Zeller out while Willy Hernangomez, who started the previous game, would make for a nice streaming option if given the nod again on Friday.
