  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham continued his hot shooting on Wednesday, dropping 40 points (12-for-21 shooting), seven triples, five assists and five rebounds as the Hornets topped the Nets 113-108.

    That makes 13 triples over his last two games, as Graham is probably the early front runner for the most improved player award. If you picked Graham up early in the season, enjoy the boost that comes with adding a top-50 point guard off waivers.

  • Terry Rozier
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Terry Rozier logged 35 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Nets, contributing 13 points (5-for-15 shooting), seven ebounds, four assists and a triple.

    Another solid but unspectacular effort from Rozier, who relies on heavy usae to bludgeon his way to fantasy value. As long as he's healthy, that will stay consistent.

  • PJ Washington
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    P.J. Washington scored 13 points (4-for-6 shooting), grabbed six rebounds, drained two triples and swatted two blocks in Wednesday's win over the Nets.

    Washington started the season hot before falling into a small lull in November. He seems to be turning it on again and as long as he's healthy should have plenty of minutes in Charlotte.

  • Miles Bridges
    SF, Charlotte Hornets

    Miles Bridges scored 14 points (4-for-16 shooting), adding four rebounds, three triples, two assists, one steal and a block in Wednesday's win over the Nets.

    It was a rough shooting night for Bridges, but it was the second consecutive game logging big minutes which is encouraging. He is still a solid option as the Hornets continue to develop their young talent this season.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
    SF, Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist logged 20 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, chipping in 11 points (4-for-9 shooting), seven rebounds, two assists, one triple and one block.

    Kidd-Gilchrist had a few more minutes than normal with Malik Monk out and looked solid. He and Cody Zeller (20 minutes, 10 points, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and a block) played a key role in the Hornets victory.

  • Malik Monk
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Malik Monk will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Nets due to a finger injury.

    Monk was previously listed as a game-time decision before this most recent news. With Monk joining Nicolas Batum as unavailable, Dwayne Bacon has a real chance to enter the rotation while Cody Martin and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist could also see more minutes. Bacon makes for an intriguing low-cost DFS play.

  • Malik Monk
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Malik Monk (finger discomfort) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup against the Nets.

    Monk could see additional opportunity in Wednesday's contest if he is able to play as the Hornets will be without Nicolas Batum (left hand). If Monk ends up sitting out, Dwayne Bacon, Cody Martin and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist could all be intriguing low-cost DFS plays. Bacon has the most fantasy-friendly game out of the three.

  • Nicolas Batum
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum will not face the Nets on Wednesday due to discomfort in his left hand.

    Batum has been averaging 21.9 minutes per game but is averaging a career-low 3.3 field goal attempts per game. His usage so far this year is also a career-low (9.5). With Batum ruled out, Malik Monk (game-time decision) could see more minutes if he ends up playing. Dwayne Bacon would also see some minutes.

  • Nicolas Batum
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    The Hornets are declaring Nicolas Batum as doubtful to play against the Nets on Wednesday due to his left hand discomfort.

    Batum only played 13 minutes on Tuesday and it’s clear that he is being bothered by the injury so he might sit a few games in order to fully heal. There has been a Michael Kidd-Gilchrist appearance lately but it’s Devonte' Graham and P.J. Washington who will likely get the extra minutes if Batum is forced to miss any action.

  • Malik Monk
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    The Hornets announced this morning that Malik Monk is probable to play against the Nets on Wednesday.

    A finger sprain has bothered Monk recently but he has been able to play through it. Devonte’ Graham is the shiny new toy in Charlotte and Monk is a consideration only in deeper leagues for now.

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham hit six triples on his way to a team-high 29 points on 9-of-19 shooting and one rebound, six assists, two steals and one block in 36 minutes in a 114-107 win over the Wizards on Tuesday.

    Graham really has just about everything a star fantasy point guard should have. He's just missing a palatable field goal percentage and a good steal rate. There's no reason to think he doesn't keep this up at this point.

  • Terry Rozier
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Terry Rozier handed out seven assists, pulled down eight rebounds and scored 17 points (5-of-14 FGs, 6-of-7 FTs) in 38 minutes in a home win over the Wizards on Tuesday.

    Rozier missed six threes tonight, and while he's known as a poor field goal percentage player, he deserves credit for shooting a career-high 42.9 percent this season. Overall, he's doing about exactly what most expected of him this season as a solid mid-round player.

  • Nicolas Batum
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Nic Batum left Tuesday night's game with left hand discomfort in the fourth quarter and did not return.

    We'll have to see if this is related to his previous injuries to his hand and just how severe the issue is. Batum's night ended with just two rebounds and one assist in 13 minutes.

  • Bismack Biyombo
    C, Charlotte Hornets

    Bismack Biyombo had a 13-point, 15-rebound double-double in 24 minutes on Tuesday as the Hornets beat the Wizards.

    Biyombo continues to start and help a little in boards, blocks, field goal percentage and turnovers, but he's just a streamer due to his limitations everywhere else, including minutes played. Cody Zeller has been getting about the same minutes allotment off the bench, and he double-doubled to night as well, going for 14 points, 11 rebounds, a steal and a three in 22 minutes.

  • PJ Washington
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    P.J. Washington (right ankle sprain) is being listed as available for Tuesday’s game against the Wizards.

    Washington looks to be past the ankle sprain that he picked up on Sunday and is good to go. Washington will have a longer leash and some extra minutes with Marvin Williams inactive for this game.
