  • Kemba Walker - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Kemba Walker hit just 11-of-25 of his shots from the field but still put up 36 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists, six 3s, and two steals in Saturday's 124-117 win over the Celtics.

    Kemba is doing all that he can so that the Hornets manage to snag one of the last remaining playoff spot in the East. He continues to play out of his mind and fantasy owners love it that he's not being considered to be shut down for the season yet.

    Kemba Walker carried the Hornets in Thursday's 113-106 win over the Wolves with 31 points on 10-of-22 shooting while adding five rebounds, six assists and a 3-pointer.

    It's going to be the Kemba show as the Hornets close out the season in hopes of snatching the final playoff spot in the east. He went 10-for-12 at the line, but only hit 1-of-8 from deep which could have turned this line from good to great.

    Kemba Walker scored 21 points on 8-of-18 shooting from the field with four boards, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes in a loss to the Sixers on Tuesday.

    Walker was in foul trouble early and only played six first-half minutes. He stormed back in the second half, saving owners hoping for a typical night from Kemba. He continues to play deep into a lost season for the Hornets.

    Kemba Walker was off his game in Sunday's bad loss, going 4-of-16 from the field for 10 points, four rebounds, four assists, a steal and two 3-pointers.

    Charlotte was stuck in the mud in this game and missed a big chance to gain ground on Miami in the playoff race. Walker went 14-for-20 in Monday's loss to the Rockets and is an atrocious 15-for-46 in the two games since. Fantasy owners just have to hope that Kemba can get back on track as the Hornets scrap for their playoff lives.

    Kemba Walker hit just 11-of-30 shots from the field but still managed 28 points, three 3s, five rebounds, four dimes, three steals, a block and three turnovers in Friday’s win over the Wizards.

    Walker had been fading a bit over the last few weeks so it was good to see him fill it up. Tony Parker chipped in 16 points, three assists, a steal and an uncharacteristic two treys in the win.

    In a recent Q & A at The Athletic, Sam Amick said that recent scuttlebutt points to Kemba Walker being more likely to leave the Hornets in free agency this summer.

    Walker has been very open about his desire to remain in Charlotte throughout this whole process, even as far back as last season when trade rumors began to swirl. The team entered the season with the mission of making the playoffs and showing Walker that they're on the right path, but right now they're on the outside looking in. Perhaps another year of watching the playoffs from home will be enough to push Kemba to greener pastures. This is still very early on in the rumor stage and sounds like more hearsay than anything — Amick said he hasn't heard anything directly from Walker's camp — and it won't affect Walker's production. Just something to keep in mind as the free agency class could become even more stacked.

    Kemba Walker scored 40 points on 14-of-20 from the field and added 10 rebounds, seven assists, six threes and a block in Monday's loss to the Rockets.

    Kemba had it going tonight with three of the regular starters out. He's been producing third-round value for the past few months after starting off the season as a borderline first-round player.

    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.

    Kemba Walker went 5-for-17 from the field and 3-of-10 from deep to finish Wednesday's loss to the Heat with 20 points, two rebounds and seven dimes.

    Kemba is in the midst of one his mini-shooting slumps lately with this being his second straight game to shoot less than 30 percent from the field. That said, we've seen him bounce back before and it's something we can expect sooner rather than later. Keep him slotted in your lineups for his top-20 upside.

    Kemba Walker was able to tally 18 points, 12 assists and a pair of 3-pointers on Sunday but shot 5-of-21 to get there.

    Somehow Walker didn't register a single rebound or steal in 39 minutes, so despite the 12 dimes this line is a disappointment. He's been on a great tear since the All-Star break and some slowdown is to be expected, though it's safe to expect an early-round finish from Kemba.

    Kemba Walker scored 25 points to go along with seven assists, four rebounds, one 3-pointer and four steals in Friday's 123-112 win against the Nets.

    Walker had another strong game in this one and has been scorching hot since the All-Star break. He may cool off some, but should continue to produce at an early-round value down the stretch.

    Kemba Walker dropped a game-high 35 points on 12-of-22 shooting with four rebounds, four assists, four triples and five steals in a loss to the Rockets on Wednesday.

    Walker was smoking hot early, scoring 24 of his 35 points in the first half but it was not enough of a buffer as the Rockets rallied to victory in the second half. He's a solid top-15 play if he can keep up lines like this but expect a bit of regression at some point as fatigue sets in.

    Kemba Walker scored 23 points on 9-of-24 from the field Monday vs. the Warriors, adding three rebounds, six assists and three 3-pointers.

    Despite the sub-par shooting, it was good to see him not seem to miss a beat after a brief trip to the locker room for an ankle re-tape. Kemba continues to be trustworthy as a top-20 bet.

    Kemba Walker went to the locker room Monday, but is availble to return after getting his ankle re-taped.

    Keep an eye on him, but it was a quick locker room visit. He should be fine.

    Kemba Walker put up 32 points, six triples and two steals in Saturday's 115-117 loss to the Nets but didn't get a foul call on the game-sealing possession.

    The Hornets are hot about it and have remained so into the postgame media session, and it is a bit surprising that a star of Kemba's level didn't get any whistle for the contact he took. Beyond that drama, Walker was "just okay" in this one with three assists and a 12-for-28 mark from the field. He'll iron it out soon enough.
