The Hornets will sign Joe Chealey to a 10-day contract.
Chealey was with the Hornets last season and signed an Exhibit 10 with the team this offseason. He was one of the final cuts before opening night and his familiarity with the organization probably helped him out here. There's no need to watch Chealey in fantasy leagues.

Cody Zeller posted an efficient 16 points and eight boards in 25 minutes on Thursday.
Zeller was perfect from the floor in this contest but this is close to the best case scenario for him. Unfortunately, he hasn't been the reliable top-100 per-game producer this season. He should be a good source for shooting percentage, rebounds and low turnover numbers.
February 20, 2020, 11:34 pmPJ WashingtonPF, Charlotte Hornets
P.J. Washington produced across the board on Thursday, scoring 17 points to go with five boards, four assists, two steals and a blocked shot as the Hornets downed the Bulls 103-93.
Washington was productive here but we do have to be aware that he isn't locked into anything at this point. Cody Martin has been solid enough to get some starts and soak up some minutes, so really he just mutes some of Washington's value. Martin had four points and six boards in 25 minutes.
February 20, 2020, 11:30 pmTerry RozierPG, Charlotte Hornets
Terry Rozier (left knee soreness) wasn't limited on Thursday night, playing 32 minutes and scoring 14 points in a win over the Bulls.
Rozier returned to action after missing a game with knee soreness and was reasonably productive. He didn't add a variety of stats but he also didn't make a lot of mistakes. It was a solid line that should get better in future games.
February 20, 2020, 11:28 pmDevonte' GrahamPG, Charlotte Hornets
Devonte' Graham went 0-for-7 from the floor and was held scoreless in 33 minutes in Thursday's win over the Bulls.
Graham had seven assists but also turned it over four times in an ugly line for the breakout guard. He won't struggle like this, but the shooting percentage is ugly more often than we want from Graham.
February 20, 2020, 11:25 pmMiles BridgesSF, Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges scored 22 points on 9-of-23 shooting on Thursday night, to go along with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.
Bridges had a good game in this one, but we would have loved to see some more efficiency in his shooting line. He hasn't quite been the player we hoped for coming into the year, but has been better in the last few weeks, so he could use this run to be a top-100 player the rest of the way.
February 20, 2020, 11:22 pmMalik MonkSG, Charlotte Hornets
Malik Monk came out of the break strong with another 25-point outing to add onto six rebounds, three assists and two steals in 30 minutes.
Monk was a catalyst in another Hornets' road victory. Again, he is worth holding onto while he's scoring like this and the shot is falling. When the shot struggles, he doesn't offer much else and should be jettisoned back to waiver wires in standard leagues.

Terry Rozier (left knee soreness) isn't on the injury report for Thursday.
Rozier sat out the final game before the break but is good to go for tomorrow. Get him back in your lineups.

Cody Martin (concussion protocol, nasal surgery) is not on the injury report for Thursday.
Martin suffered a broken nose and missed three games, but the All-Star break came at the right time and minimized his absence. With the Hornets opening up minutes for younger players down the stretch, Martin is someone to keep an eye on in deeper formats.

Terry Rozier (left knee soreness) practiced in full on Tuesday.
Rozier missed the Hornet's final game heading into the All-Star break, but it wasn't considered to be a long-term concern. Feel free to get Rozier back into all lineups ahead of Thursday's game against the Bulls.

Cody Martin (concussion protocol) fully participated in Tuesday's practice session.
Martin found himself in the starting lineup before going down a few weeks ago, as he has started to earn a bigger role in coach James Borrego's rotation. With Marvin Williams and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist out of the picture, Martin should have a reasonably safe role for the second half of the season.

Miles Bridges took home the MVP Award of Team USA's 151-131 win over Team World in the Rising Stars game on Friday night, scoring 20 points, grabbing five boards, dishing out five assists and chipping in three steals.
He hit some big shots, including a couple of three of three pointers (3-of-7 3PT). The MVP winner was not immediately obvious after the game and Bridges was the beneficiary of a wide open field. He is clinging to value in standard 12-team leagues and has been a little better of late, averaging 20 points and seven rebounds over the past two weeks. If you have an open roster spot, Bridges offers consistently average production if you need a space-filler.
February 12, 2020, 11:42 pmDevonte' GrahamPG, Charlotte Hornets
Devonte' Graham led the Hornets to a comeback win on Wednesday with a team-high 28 points on 9-of-20 shooting to go with four boards, eight dimes and five triples.
Another awesome night for Graham, as he went 5-for-11 from deep and the only thing hurting his line was the 5-for-7 mark at the line. He was sharp on offense and helped lead the Hornets to a road win with the Hornets missing Terry Rozier (sore knee) and although he shot well tonight, expect some dips the rest of the way as usual due to his high 3-point volume.
February 12, 2020, 11:40 pmMalik MonkSG, Charlotte Hornets
Malik Monk came off the bench on Wednesday and dropped 25 points with four rebounds, three assists, a steal, two blocks and three triples.
Monk was awesome tonight and led the bench squad in a comeback win against the Wolves on the road. He accumulated stats across the board and had a hot streak before this game so you can ride him while he's hot, but he's not known to be a defensive stalwart so don't expect those numbers to be a regular occurrence. The triples and points are reliable for now though.
February 12, 2020, 11:36 pmBismack BiyomboC, Charlotte Hornets
Bismack Biyombo started on Wednesday and double-doubled with 14 points and 10 rebounds to go with two assists and a block.
Biyombo drew the start and played well in his 26 minutes of action, but he's not worth owning as Cody Zeller should return to the lineup soon.
