January 20, 2019, 8:46 pmJeremy Lamb - G - Charlotte Hornets
Jeremy Lamb had a tough time on offense for the Hornets on Sunday, going 4-for-13 from the field to finish with 10 points, five rebounds, two assists, two triples and a block.
While his scoring efficiency tonight left a lot to be desired, Lamb has earned enough of our trust equity to deserve a pass. He's someone who can fill up the box score and thanks to his locked-in role of being the Hornets second scoring option, Lamb has been able to deliver bankable mid-round value in 8/9-cat on the season.
January 20, 2019, 8:39 pmBismack Biyombo - C - Charlotte Hornets
Bismack Biyombo logged 24 minutes for the Hornets on Sunday and served up a double-double with 10 points, 12 rebounds and one blocked shot.
It was not an eye-catching line but the takeaway here is that it's something that's, at the very least, the kind of production worthy of a roster spot in 14-team leagues or deeper. Willy Hernangomez was but a shadow with six points and three rebounds to his name in 18 minutes of action.
January 19, 2019, 8:32 pmMarvin Williams - F - Charlotte Hornets
Marvin Williams scored 14 points on 4-of-7 shooting with four rebounds, two assists and a block against the Suns on Saturday.
Williams has been trending in the top-100 for the past two weeks. His threes and sneaky defensive stats are what solidify his value and make him a must-own guy in all formats. Over the past week, Old Man Marv has been tallying 10.5 points on 50% shooting, 3.0 threes, 5.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.5 blocks a game.
January 19, 2019, 7:54 pmBismack Biyombo - C - Charlotte Hornets
Bismack Biyombo dropped a great line of 11 points, 13 rebounds, three assists and five blocks in a win against the Suns on Saturday.
He shot 5-of-7 from the field and was able to stay on the floor after Willy Hernangomez outplayed him in their last game. It was great to see the block numbers tonight and owners were hoping to see that kind of production every time he steps on the floor. You can stream him for rebounds and blocks but his inconsistency might make you consider other options instead.
January 19, 2019, 7:47 pmJeremy Lamb - G - Charlotte Hornets
Jeremy Lamb delivered a solid performance in Saturday's win over the Suns, registering 18 points (6-of-9 shooting) with five rebounds, six assists, five treys and no turnovers.
Lamb has taken advantage being the No. 2 scoring option behind Kemba Walker and has grown significantly from the past season. He was able to to impact the game on limited minutes as the Hornets don't want to aggravate that hamstring strain he sustained a few weeks ago. A consistent top-75 value player and shouldn't be in anyone's wire.
January 19, 2019, 7:41 pmKemba Walker - G - Charlotte Hornets
Kemba Walker led the Hornets to victory on Saturday over the Suns with 21 points and a filled up box score.
Kemba hit 9-of-22 shots from the field and made three 3-pointers along the way. He also added eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block on the night. Walker was all over the place tonight and has been a top-30 player for the past two weeks. A far cry from his production at the start of the season but stats like this are what makes owners happy.
January 17, 2019, 10:43 pmMiles Bridges - F - Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges led the bench mob on Thursday with 15 points and four boards in 22 minutes, while his team won 114-95.
Bridges spent some time as a late-round value early in the year with the injuries in the Hornets' frontcourt, but that is very far gone over the last couple months. He doesn't really have a ton of upside at this stage, with a stat set focused on scoring and rebounding.
January 17, 2019, 10:40 pmWilly Hernangomez - C - Charlotte Hornets
Willy Hernangomez had a nice night on Thursday, with 11 points and 16 boards in 26 minutes.
Hernangomez has been a per-36 darling in the past, and a line like this is a flash of that. Unfortunately, all we've seen are flashes. Until he sees a consistent amount of playing time, it's just not there for fantasy purposes.
January 17, 2019, 10:38 pmJeremy Lamb - G - Charlotte Hornets
Jeremy Lamb scored 14 points and added five rebounds and two steals on Thursday night.
It was another solid ho-hum line for Lamb, who continues to be a quiet compiler this season. It's not the amazing lines we were seeing early in the season, but there's a reliability here with Lamb. You'd miss him if he was gone.
January 17, 2019, 10:35 pmKemba Walker - G - Charlotte Hornets
Kemba Walker led the Hornets with 23 points and five assists in Thursday's win over the Kings.
It was a balanced team effort for the Hornets, as they got contributions up and down the lineup. We know what Walker is despite a slide of late. This is a top-two round asset through and through.
January 14, 2019, 10:54 pmKemba Walker - G - Charlotte Hornets
Kemba Walker scored 33 points on 13-of-27 shooting with seven 3-pointers, four rebounds, five assists and two steals on Monday.
Walker is starting to pick it back up and we knew he would get it going eventually. He was on fire from deep, going 7-for-13 and it was only a matter of time until his shot got back on track.
January 14, 2019, 10:53 pmJeremy Lamb - G - Charlotte Hornets
Jeremy Lamb scored 19 points on 8-of-15 shooting with a 3-pointer, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block on Monday.
Lamb was the No. 2 scoring option after Kemba Walker and it showed, as he had more field goal attempts as the rest of the starters outside of Walker combined. Now that he's healthy he shouldn't be floating on any waiver wires as he should cruise to top-75 value.
January 14, 2019, 10:52 pmTony Parker - G - Charlotte Hornets
Tony Parker scored eight points on 4-of-12 shooting with three rebounds and four assists in his return to San Antonio on Monday.
Parker returned to San Antonio for the first time since leaving the team in the offseason and was greeted with a welcome applause from the crowd. His line was more forgettable than the sentimental feeling Spurs fans got from him returning, but that was expected.
January 14, 2019, 10:09 amJ.P. Macura - G - Charlotte Hornets
The Hornets have transferred J.P. Macura to the Greensboro Swarm.
Macura made his NBA debut back Saturday and played 14 minutes, scoring four points, two rebounds and two assists. Macura will go back to Greensboro where he's averaged 15.1 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists in 25.9 minutes per game.

January 13, 2019, 12:51 amKemba Walker - G - Charlotte Hornets
Kemba Walker scored 31 points on 11-of-24 shooting (3-of-12 3PTs, 6-of-8 FTs) with two rebounds, four assists, one steal and six turnovers in Saturday's road loss to the Kings.
The Hornets got blown out in Portland the night before and they came to play in this one, but Kemba like his teammates ran out of gas. He hit the ground once and came up hobbling and at the end of the game he was getting his rib area checked by coaches. If an injury update hits soon, we won't be surprised, but for now just keep an eye on the blurbs.
