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.

Josh Hart scored seven points with eight boards, three dimes and a triples on Thursday.
This is just about it for Hart, he couldn't get much done even with Brandon Ingram (ankle sprain) sitting and when he returns, it's a wrap. His rebounding numbers are solid, but there just isn't enough he provides elsewhere to warrant a hold, especially with all of the hot adds on the waiver wire right now.

Josh Hart started again for Brandon Ingram (right ankle sprain) on Tuesday and provided 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting, six rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes in a win over the Blazers.
Even when he hasn't been starting, Hart has been putting up mid-round value lately. It's due to his solid production in threes, rebounds and steals. Ingram was questionable for this game, so Hart may not be starting in the Pelicans' next game on Thursday.

Brandon Ingram (right ankle sprain) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game.
He was unable to practice on Monday after missing Saturday's contest. Josh Hart's usage should decline if Ingram is able to play.

Brandon Ingram (right ankle sprain) will be a GTD for Saturday's game against the Pacers but is leaning toward doubtful according to coach Alvin Gentry.
The injury is not considered too serious so Ingram should not be out long even if he is held out on Saturday. Josh Hart and J.J. Redick may both see some added run if it determined during pregame warmups that Ingram cannot go.

Josh Hart posted 16 points, 10 rebounds, a steal and three 3-pointers on Sunday against the Rockets.
Hart's always been able to post strong rebounding numbers for a guard, and his versatility helps him stay on the floor and contribute in multiple areas. He's going to float around the top-150-170 range with spikes when other Pelicans miss time, so you can feel free to roster him accordingly.

Josh Hart led the Pelicans' reserves in minutes (28) on Friday and was able to provide 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting, adding 11 rebounds, two triples and one block.
Hart has been dealing with some ankle soreness but the 28 minutes and 11-11 performance are encouraging signs. He's doing just enough to be worth holding in 14-team leagues or deeper.

Josh Hart fought through some ankle soreness on Friday to post 15 points (6-for-11 shooting), 13 rebounds, two assists, two steals, a triple and a block in 28 minutes off the bench.
Hart is known for putting up impressive rebounding totals from the guard spot, which he did here. He played the most minutes of any Pelican off the bench in this one, but still should be considered nothing more than a streaming option.

Despite dealing with left ankle soreness, Josh Hart will be out there to face the Nuggets on Friday.
Hart is worth a look in 16-team formats, but his role in New Orleans is taking a hit as the team reorients itself around Zion Williamson. Until we see some more injuries arise to open up a larger role, Hart is nothing more than a streaming option that can give you 3-pointers and rebounds.

Josh Hart is being listed as probable vs. the Nuggets on Friday as he deals with left ankle soreness.
Hart's value has taken a hit with Zion Williamson now in the mix. His injury concerns aren't doing him any favors either. He's a drop in standard leagues and a marginal hold in 16-teamers or deeper.
