Well, my friends, for most of us the season is over. We struggled through maintenance days, injuries, "Fiz" being used as a verb, tanking, the Bulls' and Pels' special brand of tanking and had a…
April 11, 2019, 2:10 amDwayne Bacon - G/F - Charlotte Hornets
Dwayne Bacon finished with 12 points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover on 6-of-11 shooting in 34 minutes in a 122-114 loss to the Magic on Wednesday.
Bacon had been playing big minutes to close the season, averaging 31.6 over the past week which could be a sign of things to come. Bacon starts in 12 games this season which doubles the six that he started in last season. Bacon was outside of the top-300 in 8/9-cat leagues but the potential and upside is there. With Kemba Walker's return in the air, the Hornets could look brand new next season which could be good for Bacon.
April 5, 2019, 9:24 pmJeremy Lamb - G - Charlotte Hornets
Jeremy Lamb hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 3.3 seconds left in Friday’s takedown of the Raptors and finished with 22 points, two 3s, five rebounds, four assists, three steals and no turnovers.
Outside of some mild ankle discomfort affecting his play, Lamb has continued to excel coming off the bench. Starters Dwayne Bacon scored eight points with five rebounds and four assists while Miles Bridges managed seven points, five assists and a steal. Both Bacon and Bridges have really fallen off after their strong play last week.

Dwyane Bacon only logged five minutes on Monday, scoring two points on 1-of-2 shooting while adding a rebound.
Bacon wasn't horrible in his five minutes of action, but the subs that came in just played better which led to coach Borrego opting to leave him on the bench. Malik Monk logged 25 minutes off the bench and scored six points with six boards, an assist, two steals and a 3-pointer but was a plus-13 which was the real deciding factor in the minutes discrepancy here. Devonte' Graham also logged 27 minutes off the bench and even though he went 0-for-7 with zero points, he handed out six assists with a steal and two rebounds. The playmaking capabilities of the other two guards off the bench were sought after over Bacon's scoring tonight.

Dwayne Bacon notched 21 points, three 3-pointers and one steal over 38 minutes in Friday's loss to the Lakers.
Bacon followed up his career-high 24 points on Tuesday with his second-highest scoring total of the season. On an off night for Jeremy Lamb, Bacon filled in as the secondary scoring option behind Kemba Walker who chipped in his normal production of 24 points, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

Dwayne Bacon scored a career-high 24 points in Tuesday's overtime win against the Spurs, adding six rebounds, three steals, a block and four 3-pointers while going 9-of-16 from the field.
The steals were also a career-high. Bacon played 36 minutes and could be working at heavy workloads going forward after Jeremy Lamb sprained his ankle tonight. The return of Nic Batum (illness) will eat into that playing time somewhat, but Bacon's playing well enough right now to be worth a flier if you need guard help. This deep into the season you've got to get it while it's hot, and Bacon's collected a couple nice games and has a good opportunity in front of him.

Dwayne Bacon started and played 31 minutes in Saturday's win over the Celtics, providing 11 points, five rebounds, three assists, a block and a 3-pointer.
Nic Batum wasn't available in tonight's matchup hence Bacon getting the nod to start on this one and logging more minutes than what he usually gets. Fantasy owners in deep leagues should grab him if he's still on the wire.
March 21, 2019, 9:46 pmDwayne 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.
March 15, 2019, 9:21 pmNicolas Batum - G/F - Charlotte Hornets
Nic Batum (eye) returned from a one-game absence and scored 16 points to go with four 3s, six assists, five rebounds, a steal and a block in Friday’s road win over the Wizards.
Batum has been rolling with top-60 value over the last two months so hopefully you had him in your lineup. Dwayne Bacon added 13 points and a trey in the win.
March 11, 2019, 10:38 pmDwayne Bacon - G/F - Charlotte Hornets
Dwayne Bacon started and played 35 minutes in Monday's loss to the Rockets, providing 13 points, three rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.
He's been in the rotation for a few games now, but tonight's extra minutes were due to a minor Nic Batum injury, so expect to see him drop back to the low 20s or even fewer once again.
March 8, 2019, 6:28 pmBismack Biyombo - C - Charlotte Hornets
Bismack Biyombo (left knee sprain) will not play on Friday vs. the Wizards despite his probable tag.
Biyombo’s absence means more time for Frank Kaminsky (who has been playing well over his last three games). Dwayne Bacon should also be active but isn’t a good option even for a punt play.

The Hornets have recalled Dwayne Bacon from their G-League affiliate ahead of Friday's game versus the Nets.
The second-year forward has appeared in 25 games this season for the Hornets and has shown to be a viable wing-defender. Unfortunately, Bacon is still third at best in the pecking order at small forward and has little to no fantasy relevance.

The Charlotte Hornets have sent Dwayne Bacon to their G-League affiliate, the Greensboro Swarm.
As he continues to develop his game in the G-League, Bacon has little to no value for fantasy owners this season because of the lack of playing time with the Hornets.

The Charlotte Hornets have recalled Dwayne Bacon from the Greensboro Swarm.
Bacon has appeared in 23 games, averaging 4.6 points, 1.5 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 10.6 minutes in his second season with the Hornets. He's a third-string guard at best and will not be able to help any fantasy owners with their teams this season.

Dwayne Bacon has been recalled from the Greensboro Swarm of the G-League and will be available for tonight's game against the Mavs.
Bacon returns to the Hornets where he has appeared in 17 games averaging 5.5 points, 1.8 rebounds and 0.8 assists in 12.3 minutes per game. He will provide much needed depth in the backcourt as the team is expected to be without Jeremy Lamb who is nursing a strained hamstring.
