  • 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.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller has officially been ruled out for the game against the Sixers on Tuesday.

    Zeller is going to miss his fourth consecutive game, making him a tough hold in standard leagues unless you can stash him in an IR spot. Bismack Biyombo should continue to start while Frank Kaminsky has been a nice late-season surprise after spending most of the year buried on Charlotte’s bench.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (left knee soreness) is doubtful for Tuesday against the Sixers.

    Zeller will miss his fourth consecutive game and is a drop candidate if you need immediate production. He's been a solid late-round player when healthy, but fantasy owners can't afford to sit and wait at this point in the season. Bismack Biyombo will likely draw another start, with Frank Kaminsky playing the most up front. We'd like to see Willy Hernangomez get some playing time after two straight DNPs but we're also not holding our breath there.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (left knee soreness) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Heat, and Bismack Biyombo will start in his place.

    This was the same arrangement from Friday night, though things might change in the reserve group since Miami has much larger frontcourt players than the Wizards. Willy Hernangomez should be able to get some playing time today but that's a coin flip, so if you're targeting any big off Charlotte's bench it should be Frank Kaminsky.

    Cody Zeller (left knee soreness) is doubtful to play on Sunday against the Heat.

    Zeller sat out on Friday night, with Bismack Biyombo making the start and Frank Kaminsky playing additional minutes off the bench. The matchup against the small-ball Wizards prevented Willy Hernangomez from getting any minutes, but perhaps that will change against a Heat squad that features two true centers.

  • Nicolas Batum - G/F - Charlotte Hornets

    Nic Batum (eye), Marvin Williams (illness) and Bismack Biyombo will start on Friday vs. the Wizards.

    Biyombo will draw the start for Cody Zeller (knee) while Batum and Williams will rejoin the starting lineup after missing a game each to injury.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (left knee strain) will not play on Friday vs. the Wizards while Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (left knee soreness) is available.

    Frank Kaminsky remains the prime beneficiary although Willy Hernangomez, who started the last game Zeller missed, could be a nice play in DFS.

    Cody Zeller (knee) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Wizards.

    Frank Kaminsky will continue to see a minutes and usage bump with Zeller out while Willy Hernangomez, who started the previous game, would make for a nice streaming option if given the nod again on Friday.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (knee) did not practice on Wednesday.

    Zeller has two days to get healthy before Friday's game against the Wizards, but he is in danger of missing his second straight game. Willy Hernangomez started in place of Zeller last game and would look to do so again if Zeller can't go.

  • Kemba Walker - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Kemba Walker had an off-night from the field, finishing Friday’s 112-111 win over the Wizards with 18 points on 6-of-19 from the field, adding one 3, six assists, two steals, a block and three turnovers.

    Walker has cooled down after a hot start and we wonder if receiving so much defensive attention from opponents is finally wearing down on him. Cody Zeller added eight points, six rebounds and two blocks in the win.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller exploded for a career-high 28 points on 13-of-14 field goals in a loss to the Warriors on Monday night, adding nine rebounds, two assists, three steals and three blocks while hitting all five of his free throws.

    Zeller played 37 minutes, which is 12 over his season average. However, it's been at least two months of top-60 production for the efficient center. He may be available on your waiver wire, but he should be owned in all leagues at this point.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller fouled out in 26 minutes on Saturday night but still managed 13 points, 11 rebounds and a block.

    The big man went 3-of-9 from the field but saved the day by going 7-of-8 from the line. This is a pretty solid, if unexciting line from Zeller. On a similar note Marvin Williams came through with 11 points, eight rebounds, a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer. Both players are must-own options and are excellent depth players for most roster builds.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller led the team with 30 minutes on Thursday, finishing with 13 points and seven boards.

    On a night where the Hornets lost by almost 40, this is as good as you're going to get. He's boring and fine. There's late-round value for a plodding center.
