Devonte' Graham had an off game on Wednesday night, shooting 4-of-11 from the field for 14 points, three triples, two rebounds and four assists.
Graham could not get into the flow of the offense in this one but should still be able to bounce back in the next one. He's in the conversation for Most Improved Player of the year and should be in for another big game soon as the Hornets get a lengthy rest.
January 15, 2020, 11:49 pmTerry RozierPG, Charlotte Hornets
Terry Rozier was on fire on Wednesday, knocking down 6-of-9 shots from deep en route to his team-high 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting with three rebounds, nine dimes and one steal in 36 minutes.
Rozier has managed to pivot into being a bona fide star for the Hornets in recent games, clocking in as the 26th best player in 9-cat over the last two weeks. He's been buoyed by his 4.0 threes, 23.4 points, 4.8 assists per game on crazy .470 shooting from the field. The shooting efficiency is not likely sustainable, so expect a bit of regression soon.
January 15, 2020, 11:43 pmCody ZellerC, Charlotte Hornets
Cody Zeller was solid in his return to the starting lineup on Wednesday, chipping in 11 points on 5-of-10 shooting with one rebound, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 22 minutes.
Zeller's minutes are still being monitored closely by the Hornets but remains as a solid end-of-bench guy in standard leagues for his efficient game. Bismack Biyombo was forgettable in his 15 minutes off the bench, posting four points, three blocks and six rebounds.
January 15, 2020, 7:17 pmRay SpaldingPF, Charlotte Hornets
The Hornets have signed Ray Spalding to a two-way contract on Wednesday.
Spalding was waived by the Rockets after failing to play a minute with the big league club all season. The Hornets waived two-way player, Robert Franks, earlier in the day to make room to sign Spalding to a two-way contract. He doesn't currently hold any fantasy value.

Willy Hernangomez scored 14 points on 7-of-8 shooting to go with four rebounds and a block on Monday.
Hernangomez played 16 non-garbage time minutes tonight which was a rarity, but we can't trust him one bit. He logged 17 minutes in his last three games combined and that dates back to December 22nd so you can safely ignore him.
January 14, 2020, 12:23 amDevonte' GrahamPG, Charlotte Hornets
Devonte' Graham scored 27 points on 9-of-17 shooting while adding three rebounds, 10 assists, a steal and eight 3-pointers in Monday's 112-115 loss to the Blazers.
Graham continues to play the perfect brand of basketball for the modern NBA. This has also meant his game translates perfectly for fantasy as well. His percentages are a drag because he takes more 3-point attempts than two-pointers, but it's leading to top-70 value from a guy you plucked off the waivers because of his high volume triples (3.5) paired with 7.8 assists.
January 14, 2020, 12:22 amTerry RozierPG, Charlotte Hornets
Terry Rozier scored 25 points on 8-of-18 shooting to go with seven rebounds, three assists and four 3-pointers on Monday.
Rozier has had a pleasantly surprising season as the percentages are bad, but not otherworldly bad. He's been a top-50 player over the last two weeks, averaging 21.7 points, 3.4 3s, 4.4 assists and 0.9 steals on .452 shooting. The shooting should regress a bit so enjoy this while it lasts.
January 14, 2020, 12:21 amPJ WashingtonPF, Charlotte Hornets
P.J. Washington double-doubled on Monday with 20 points and 11 rebounds to go with three assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers.
He went 6-for-15 from the floor and 5-for-5 at the line and Washington is finally starting to heat up again. He had a nice line outside of the scoring as well which is what we've been waiting for.
January 14, 2020, 12:20 amMiles BridgesSF, Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges scored two points on 0-of-7 shooting to go with two rebounds and one assist on Monday.
Bridges came into this game red-hot, posting top-60 numbers and put up an absolute dud in this one. He's not the most consistent player, but he's still worth hanging onto as he's proven himself to be a capable fantasy option. Just temper your expectations.
January 12, 2020, 10:50 pmDevonte' GrahamPG, Charlotte Hornets
Devonte' Graham dropped 22 points on 7-of-18 shooting with eight dimes and three steals on Sunday in a loss to the Suns.
Graham shot 4-of-13 from beyond the arc and added one block to the stat sheet. He outplayed Terry Rozier, who had just five points and two assists on 1-of-10 shooting. When Graham and Rozier are both playing well the Hornets are in good shape, but there are some inconsistencies with the two. However, they are both solid fantasy options as top-80 values on the season.
January 12, 2020, 10:45 pmCody ZellerC, Charlotte Hornets
Cody Zeller put up 15 points with eight rebounds and five assists in a 100-92 loss to the Suns on Sunday.
This was Zelller's first career game with 15-plus points, 5-plus rebounds and 5-plus assists. He can be used as a deep-league rebounding and field goal percentage option, but does not hold much standard league value.
January 12, 2020, 10:39 pmDwayne BaconSF, Charlotte Hornets
Dwayne Bacon played well in a loss to the Suns on Sunday with 24 points on 10-of-15 shooting.
Bacon played 32 minutes and added five rebounds to the box score. Bacon is outside top-350 value on the season and can be left on all waiver wires.
January 12, 2020, 8:59 pmBismack BiyomboC, Charlotte Hornets
Bismack Biyombo took a shot to the nose and was forced out of Sunday's game, but is available to return.
Biyombo has grabbed hold of the starting center spot in Charlotte. While Cody Zeller's a more interesting fantasy option, Biyombo is a fine source of rebounds and blocks in deeper formats.

Devonte' Graham was atrocious in Friday's loss to the Jazz, committing more turnovers (five) than points scored (four, 2-of-9 shooting) tow go with two rebounds, five assists and one steal.
Graham posted one of his worst games of the season tonight. The Hornets got a rude taste of the Jazz's stingy defense and his production paid the price. He's still in the midst of an amazing breakout season and is worth a buy-low offer after tonight's stinker.
January 10, 2020, 11:28 pmMarvin WilliamsPF, Charlotte Hornets
Marvin Williams (nasal fracture) returned to action on Friday and quietly put up three points, two rebounds, one steal and one block in 16 minutes of action.
Williams will need to get his legs back before he can be worth a pickup in 16-team leagues or deeper. He's not part of the Hornets' long-term plans, so will see limited and sporadic opportunities to sound off on the fantasy radar.
