    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.

    Dwayne Bacon was effective in 28 minutes off the bench on Thursday, producing 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting with two 3s, four rebounds, two assists and one steal.

    This marks his second straight game to score in double figures after a multiple-game stretch of being barely in the rotation. He's worth a speculative add in 16-team leagues or better after tonight's encouraging performance.

    Malik Monk will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Nets due to a finger injury.

    Monk was previously listed as a game-time decision before this most recent news. With Monk joining Nicolas Batum as unavailable, Dwayne Bacon has a real chance to enter the rotation while Cody Martin and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist could also see more minutes. Bacon makes for an intriguing low-cost DFS play.

    Malik Monk (finger discomfort) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup against the Nets.

    Monk could see additional opportunity in Wednesday's contest if he is able to play as the Hornets will be without Nicolas Batum (left hand). If Monk ends up sitting out, Dwayne Bacon, Cody Martin and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist could all be intriguing low-cost DFS plays. Bacon has the most fantasy-friendly game out of the three.

  • Nicolas Batum
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum will not face the Nets on Wednesday due to discomfort in his left hand.

    Batum has been averaging 21.9 minutes per game but is averaging a career-low 3.3 field goal attempts per game. His usage so far this year is also a career-low (9.5). With Batum ruled out, Malik Monk (game-time decision) could see more minutes if he ends up playing. Dwayne Bacon would also see some minutes.

  • Nicolas Batum
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Nic Batum went to the locker room in the second quarter of Monday's game with left hand discomfort and is questionable to return.

    Batum has been coming off the bench, so there may not be much of a change in their rotation with him out. Malik Monk and possibly Dwayne Bacon could see a few extra minutes. The game is a bit out of hand already, so there may not be much motivation to rush Batum back into this one.

    Dwayne Bacon (right knee soreness) is probable to play against the Knicks on Saturday.

    Bacon missed the last two games after starting every game prior for 9.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 0.8 triples in 25.3 minutes on 34.2 percent shooting. He is nowhere near the standard league radar especially with it being reported that Devonte' Graham is expected to keep his spot in the starting lineup.

    Due to right knee soreness, Dwayne Bacon is out for Friday's faceoff with the Pistons.

    This will be Bacon's second consecutive missed game. Devonte' Graham will have a larger role as a starter, as will PJ Washington and Malik Monk off the bench. Bacon had been probable for this one so owners should not have to wait much longer for his return.

    Dwayne Bacon (sore right knee) is probable to play against Detroit on Friday.

    Bacon received treatment during practice on Thursday and did not participate in full but it looks like that will not keep him out of Friday's game. Deep league managers should check back tomorrow to be sure.

    Dwayne Bacon (sore knee) received treatment on his knee but did not practice on Thursday.

    Malik Monk received more minutes on Wednesday night against the Grizzlies with Bacon out and could provide some short term streamer appeal in his absence.

    Dwayne Bacon (right knee soreness) will sit out on Wednesday.

    Bacon generated some buzz in the preseason and looked ready to take on a big role but has scuffled his way to a top-300 start, so that dream is dead. He's not worth rostering outside of leagues with more than 20 teams.

    Dwayne Bacon is doubtful for Wednesday’s game against the Grizzlies, due to right knee soreness.

    Bacon only played 13 minutes on Tuesday and that might had to do with the current injury status. Devonte' Graham and Malik Monk will see additional minutes while Bacon should be dropped in standard leagues.

    Dwayne Bacon played for only 13 minutes of the Hornets' overtime victory on Tuesday, going 0-for-3 with a turnover.

    Bacon was simply bested by Devonte' Graham in this one. We've seen a few good games from Bacon this season, but he's too inconsistent to trust on a regular basis.

    Dwayne Bacon scored a career-high 25 points on 10-of-21 shooting, adding six rebounds, two assists and two steals in Saturdays 93-87 win over the Warriors.

    What a night for Bacon, as he was given the green light and took a team-high 21 shots from the field. Though it was disappointing that he did not convert any of his 3s, you can not be dissatisfied with his production. In addition to the career-high in points he also matched his career-high in minutes with 37. He is being given the opportunity to contribute for the Hornets and fantasy managers should be willing to pick him up in most points leagues.
