Josh Hart (right knee soreness) was a beast on the glass for the Pelicans on Thursday, pulling down 14 rebounds to complement his 23 points on 7-of-14 shooting with six assists, three treys, one steal and one block in 36 minutes.
Hart was huge, putting his rebounding skills on full display. He's got undisputed talent for sure but is going to need for one or some the Pelicans' usual starters to get injured before he's can have a shot at this kind of production on a regular basis.

Josh Hart (right knee soreness) has been upgraded to available for Thursday's contest vs. the Magic and will be in the starting lineup.
Hart could be in line for a big workload on Thursday as the team is without Jrue Holiday (elbow), Zion Williamson (knee) and Brandon Ingram (knee). He should be streamed for this matchup and could be considered as a DFS play now that he is active.

Josh Hart (right knee soreness) is questionable to play in Thursday's contest vs. the Magic.
Hart could see an increase in opportunity if he is able to suit up as the team will be without Jrue Holiday (elbow), Zion Williamson (knee) and Brandon Ingram (knee). Continue to monitor the news as we should learn more ahead of Thursday's 6:00 PM PST tip-off. Although Hart has not produced standard league value over his first seven opportunities in Orlando, he has an opportunity to produce top-100 value for the team's last game if he gets ruled in.

Josh Hart drew the start for the Pelicans on Tuesday and was quite active on the glass, pulling down 10 rebounds to go along with his three points (1-of-8 shooting), one assist and two steals.
Hart's offense was just not there tonight and the boards were an insufficient consolation to make up for his deficiencies from a fantasy standpoint. That said, Hart has been able to produce big lines in the past when given the opportunity, so he's worth holding in 14-16 team leagues.

Derrick Favors took just four shots on his way to six points in Thursday's loss to the Kings.
Favors didn't do much else either, grabbing just four rebounds to go with one assist and one turnover in 22 minutes. Josh Hart actually produced more off the bench with 11 points (4-of-5 FG), three rebounds, three assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in 23 minutes. Despite the fact that Favors starts, Hart is the player that should be looked at in standard leagues for the rest of the resumption season as he brings more to the table than the 29-year-old.

Josh Hart finished Thursday's game with 10 points and two triples in 22 minutes, while E'Twaun Moore added eight points and two triples of his own in 14 minutes in a late loss to the Jazz.
Hart and Moore could be very cheap daily plays for those trying to sneak in some low-value assets. Hart especially has had stretches of top-100 value in the past as an efficient, versatile guard. Moore makes his living as more of a 3-point specialist, as he was making 3.1 triples per game before the season went on pause.

Frank Jackson scored 16 points on 5-of-9 shooting with three triples, a rebound and an assist in Monday's scrimmage against the Bucks.
Jackson logged 20 minutes and got a little extra burn because the Pelicans didn't play any of their starters more than 23 minutes tonight. He's a decent backup, but we expect Josh Hart (20 minutes, seven points, one 3-pointer, four rebounds and two assists) to take up more playing time when the real games begin again.

Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart will not play in Saturday's scrimmage game after both underwent minor dental procedures.
Both suited up in Wednesday's first scrimmage so there's nothing to see here. Expect both to be all systems go for the resumption schedule.

Josh Hart held top-120 value in 9-category leagues during his first year as a Pelican.
Hart's biggest fantasy contribution was the 6.5 rebounds per game he chipped in at the guard position. He also made about two triples per game while hitting them at a 34.2 percent clip. Hart finished with 10.2 points per game to with 1.6 assists and 1.0 steals over 27.4 minutes per contest. However, J.J. Redick's presence often cut into Hart's fantasy upside and he finished just outside top-130 value in 8-category formats.

Josh Hart dropped a big dud on Sunday, going 0-for-8 from the field to finish with one point, five rebounds and two steals in 27 minutes of action.
Since JJ Redick went down Hart has posted 2-4-2, 19-12-2 (with five cash counters) and now 1-5-0 games. Despite ample opportunity, Hart looks like he'll be very boom or bust, limiting him to deep leagues and streaming situations.

Josh Hart chipped in an impressive 19 points (6-for-12 shooting), 12 rebounds, three triples, two assists, one steal and one block in 28 minutes off the bench in Friday's win over the Heat.
As expected, Hart stepped into a larger role with JJ Redick out with an injury. Hart is a great source of out-of-position rebounds and is worth a look as a deep-league streamer while Redick is out.

Frank Jackson chipped in 12 points and three 3-pointers to lead the Pelicans bench in production on Wednesday.
It was Jackson, not Josh Hart (two points, four rebounds, two assists in 13 minutes) or E'Twaun Moore (four points, one steal, one block in 16 minutes) who absorbed JJ Redick's vacated minutes tonight. Hart's still the best bet for production but it's not enough of a slam dunk to make him an obvious pickup while Redick is out.

Josh Hart was a solid contributor across the board on Tuesday for the Pelicans, going for 11 points, six rebounds and five assists in 26 minutes.
This was the first time since February 21st that Hart has registered double-digit points. His production has been all over the place this year and he's in one of his dry stretches at the moment. On the season, Hart ranks right around the top-100 but he's been more of a top-200 player as of the last couple of weeks.

Josh Hart couldn't capitalize on JJ Redick's early absence on Friday, finishing with five points, four rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer in 19 minutes.
Hart is sitting inside the top-120 on the season as New Orleans' super-sub, so keep an eye on his workload going forward if Redick misses any time. Right now Hart is only an option in the 16-team neighborhood but he typically offers some short-term punch when his teammates are in the infirmary.

Josh Hart contributed 13 points (4-for-5 shooting), 13 rebounds, three triples, two assists and one block in 28 minutes on Friday.
Hart was sensational in Friday's game as he frequently used his superior athleticism to overpower the Blazers defense. Nicolo Melli was also productive off the bench with 13 points (5-for-11 shooting), five rebounds, three triples and a steal.
