  • PJ Washington
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    P.J. Washington scored 20 points and hit three triples on Thursday night as the Hornets fell 114-112 to the Nuggets.

    Washington has picked it up recently after a quiet stretch and has been a decent late-round value this season. That should continue for a team trying to see what it has in the youngsters.

  • Willy Hernangomez
    C, Charlotte Hornets

    Willy Hernangomez put together 23 productive minutes off the bench on Thursday night, scoring 14 points and grabbing six boards.

    The shot went down again for Hernangomez, who has actually had streaming value over the last couple weeks due to his rebounding and efficiency. He may have some value in deep leagues and as a cheap daily play down the stretch, especially if he and Cody Zeller continue to split minutes. Zeller played 25 minutes to put up 10 points and six boards.

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham scored a game-high 24 points to go along with seven assists and three triples in Thursday's loss to the Nuggets.

    Graham had a nice outing and fortunately didn't miss a boatload of shots here (8-of-15 from the floor) which has really been the bane of an otherwise impressive breakout season. If he gets hot down the stretch, he has a chance to win some people leagues with his volume scoring, triples and assists.

  • Terry Rozier
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Terry Rozier scored 19 points on Thursday to go along with five triples, but couldn't keep the Hornets in it at the buzzer.

    Rozier continued his inconsistent season with this empty scoring line. He hit five triples, which we nice and gave him a new career-high for a season, but he added just three assists. He should be a mid-round value and is probably the best Hornet to own, but there's going to be some ugly games on the way.

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte’ Graham (left ankle soreness) will start for Thursday’s matchup vs. the Nuggets.

    Graham will return to action after a one-game absence. He’s been very healthy throughout this season with only two missed games out of 62 opportunities. Jalen McDaniels will see his minutes evaporate as he filled in for Graham during Tuesday's game.

    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham (left ankle soreness) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game.

    Graham already missed Tuesday's game, pushing Cody Martin into the starting lineup. He has averaged 3.4 made triples this season on 36.6 percent shooting behind the arc. The 17.6 points and 7.5 assists per game don't hurt, either.

  • Willy Hernangomez
    C, Charlotte Hornets

    After playing in just 13 of Charlotte’s first 42 games, Willy Hernangomez has played in 15 of the last 18, as he continues to show progress in addressing his biggest weakness, defense.

    “He’s putting more effort in at the defensive end; that’s the area of most concern for me,” Hornets head coach James Borrego said. “The video and the numbers demonstrate to me that he’s making a bigger impact at that end of the floor than he has in the past; challenging more shots at the rim.” Hernangomez has size, rare strength, a gift for scoring and a knack for rebounding in traffic but defense has always kept him away from getting major minutes. He will be an unrestricted free agent in July and the Hornets continue to evaluate him ahead of the upcoming offseason. He deserves consideration in deeper leagues as his minutes have been steady in the last few games.

  • Terry Rozier
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Terry Rozier had an efficient night on Tuesday, netting 20 points (8-of-18 FG, 2-of-2 FT) and adding six rebounds and five assists in a loss to the Spurs.

    Rozier has had an up-and-down year for the Hornets and he's been that way recently, too. He's a top-90 guy over the last two months and thus should be deployed in fantasy leagues everywhere. That being said, he is frustrating. If you have him, you're stuck with him. The sudden absence of fellow guard Malik Monk should provide a bit of an offensive boost for Rozier.

  • PJ Washington
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    PJ Washington scored 19 points, grabbed four rebounds and had three assists in Tuesday's loss to the Spurs, playing 34 minutes.

    On a per-game basis, Washington has been a top-150 player this season and deserves to be owned in most places. He is a very consistent scorer and rebounder. His two-week averages are a bit better than his season averages as well, as he's sitting at 14.3 points and 5.6 rebounds per game in those seven games.

  • Cody Martin
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Martin put up 13 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 34 minutes of action on Tuesday in the Hornets' loss to the Spurs.

    There has only been one game this season in which Martin logged more minutes than he did in this one. He really hasn't produced enough to warrant fantasy consideration this season, but has been better of late, averaging seven points and five rebounds over the past two weeks.

  • Cody Zeller
    C, Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller made his return to action on Tuesday night against the Spurs, after picking up a DNP-CD in each of the previous three contests, and had eight points, seven rebounds and three assists in 19 minutes.

    The situation in Charlotte is aggravating, to say the least. Coach James Borrego seemed to think playing Bismack Biyombo over Zeller was the right move at this point in the season, but has apparently flipped on them and started Zeller tonight with Biyombo picking up a DNP-CD. Good luck trying to figure this one out. Our best advice is to steer clear of anyone in the Hornets' front court.

  • Cody Martin
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Martin is expected to get the starting nod in place of Devonte' Graham (out) against the Spurs on Tuesday.

    Cody's brother Caleb Martin is expected to see a minutes increase as well, while Joe Chealy steps in as the team's backup PG. Cody Martin has been providing top-150 value in both 9/8 cat leagues over his past four games and figures to continue on that trend with the spike in minutes. He's a guy to keep an eye on down the stretch run.

  • Bismack Biyombo
    C, Charlotte Hornets

    Bismack Biyombo is getting replaced by Cody Zeller in the starting lineup, while Willy Hernangomez is expected to play the backup C minutes against the Spurs on Tuesday.

    Biyombo may not see the floor tonight after starting the past three games and being a productive back-end big man. Willy Hernangomez and Cody Zeller are worth a look in deeper leagues as the Hornets continue to search for an answer at C.

  • Cody Zeller
    C, Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller will start in place of Bismack Biyombo during Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

    Biyombo started the past three games, but it looks like coach James Borrego will turn back to Zeller in this one. Zeller may have been dropped in your leagues and is worth a look at the end of benches if he is available.

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte’ Graham has been downgraded to out for Tuesday’s game against the Spurs.

    Terry Rozier is expected to shift to the point guard position with one of the Martin brothers, Cody or Caleb, likely entering the staring lineup. The Hornets also signed Joe Chealey to a second 10-day contract this morning and he should get some minutes as well but it’s hard to trust him for fantasy purposes.
