  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (left knee soreness) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion protocol) will both miss Saturday's game against the Celtics.

    Zeller and Kidd-Gilchrist are no longer in the conversation for standard-league viability in the home stretch. Zeller specifically was putting up top-100 value on a per-game basis but taking a zero right now is just not a good strategy. Frank Kaminsky, Miles Bridges and Dwayne Bacon will be more involved.

  • Kemba Walker - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Kemba Walker carried the Hornets in Thursday's 113-106 win over the Wolves with 31 points on 10-of-22 shooting while adding five rebounds, six assists and a 3-pointer.

    It's going to be the Kemba show as the Hornets close out the season in hopes of snatching the final playoff spot in the east. He went 10-for-12 at the line, but only hit 1-of-8 from deep which could have turned this line from good to great.

  • Malik Monk - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Malik Monk logged 19 minutes off the bench on Thursday and scored 14 points on 5-of-10 shoting while adding four rebounds and four 3-pointers.

    Monk entered the rotation on Thursday and played much better than Jeremy Lamb (28 minutes, 13 points on 6-of-20 shooting with 10 rebounds and an assist) but we've seen this occurrence before. Unless you're desperate for triples, Monk isn't an add in standard leagues.

  • Frank Kaminsky - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Frank Kaminsky scored two points on 0-of-6 shooting while adding a rebound, two assists and two blocks on Thursday.

    Kaminksy only logged eight minutes and coach Borrego was fiddling around with his rotations tonight which means a lot of Hornets players aren't safe. Even though there's a back-to-back set coming up, Kaminsky hasn't done anything to prove to us that he'd be a reliable pickup for those games.

  • Nicolas Batum - G/F - Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum came off the bench on Thursday and scored two points on 1-of-5 shooting while adding four rebounds and a block.

    Batum came off the bench, but logged 23 minutes compared to Dwyane Bacon's 19 which is a good thing for Batum owners. He didn't have his shot going tonight, but neither did Bacon so owners have hope for Batum to make up for lost ground in the next two games this week.

  • Dwayne Bacon - G/F - Charlotte Hornets

    Dwyane Bacon started on Thursday and scored four points on 1-of-8 shooting while chipping in five rebounds, five assists and a steal.

    Bacon started over Nicolas Batum but he only logged 19 minutes so the promotion was only in name. He can be left on wires.

  • Miles Bridges - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Miles Bridges notched his first career double-double against the Wolves on Thursday with 11 points and 12 rebounds while adding four assists, two steals and a 3-pointer.

    Bridges went 5-for-8 from the floor and logged 30 minutes which was the second highest on the team only behind Kemba Walker. He's still a bit unreliable due to the fact that Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion protocol) could return by Saturday's game which would end Bridges' run.

  • Marvin Williams - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Marvin Williams got his shot corrected against the Wolves on Thursday with 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting to go with three rebounds, two steals, three blocks and three 3-pointers.

    Williams was absolutely terrible shooting the ball over the past week, but he finally got it going from the floor and he added defensive stats as a bonus. He's worth holding onto and picking up if he's been dropped as the Hornets play a back-to-back set on Saturday and Sunday.

  • Nicolas Batum - G/F - Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum has been replaced in the starting lineup on Thursday night, with Dwayne Bacon drawing the start against the Wolves.

    Batum is expected to be available off the bench, though he could be dealing with an undisclosed injury. He has started every game he's played in this year and it could be James Borrego looking for a spark with Charlotte trying to scrap their way into the playoffs.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (sore left knee) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Wolves.

    Bismack Biyombo should start again and might play more than usual against Karl-Anthony Towns, but he's only an option if you're streaming for boards and blocks. Frank Kaminsky remains the best fantasy option among Charlotte's reserve centers.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (sore left knee) is doubtful to play the Wolves on Thursday.

    It looks like Zeller is heading towards a fifth straight absence. Bismack Biyombo should continue to start while Frank Kaminsky plays a big role off the bench.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion protocol) will miss Thursday's game vs. The Wolves.

    Kidd-Gilchrist hasn't been getting much run lately, but his absence will open up a few additional minutes for Miles Bridges and Dwayne Bacon, who are worth a look as streamers.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist left Tuesday's game to be evaluated for a concussion in the third quarter and did not return.

    Kidd-Gilchrist's night wrapped with six points, six rebounds and a 3-pointer in nine minutes. Dwayne Bacon saw more run than usual off the bench but that might've had more to do with Kemba Walker's foul trouble than MKG's absence. Miles Bridges will need to do more heavy lifting if Kidd-Gilchrist misses time.

  • Miles Bridges - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Miles Bridges shot 4-for-10 from the field for eight points with 10 boards, two assists and two steals in 29 minutes in a 118-114 loss to the Sixers on Tuesday.

    Bridges continues to start but his minutes are all over the board. He had 29 minutes tonight, but he combined for just 26 minutes in his last two games as a starter and put up duds, so he can't be relied on at this time.

  • Jeremy Lamb - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Jeremy Lamb shot 6-for-11 from the field and 11-for-12 from the line for 26 points with 11 boards, three assists and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes in a loss to the Sixers on Tuesday.

    Lamb hit clutch free throws down the stretch to bring the Hornets within one point in the final seconds, but it wasn't enough. He has brought top-60 value on the season and continues to spread the wealth on the stat sheet. Keep rolling with Lamb as a fantasy playoff hero.
