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…

Miles Bridges finished with 18 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and one turnover on 8-of-13 shooting in a team-high 41 minutes on Wednesday.
Bridges is far from the Rookie of the Year but he really started to pick things up in the final weeks of the season. He was a top-70 player over his last eight games and is capable of giving owners good value in multiple categories. On the season, he only played 21.1 minutes but the Hornets have shown that they're willing to give him more if he performs well. He showed flashes of greatness this season and now he's just got to work on keeping up the consistency. It'll be interesting to see how much hype surrounds him this summer and he could be a late-round steal come next year's draft.

Miles Bridges put it all together, providing 18 points (6-of-9 FGs), seven rebounds, four assists, four threes and three blocks in a 124-97 road win on Tuesday.
Bridges has been playing a larger role with Marvin Williams (right foot sprain) out lately, and it all went right in his 28 minutes tonight. He's been playing more minutes than that, but he wasn't needed as long in this blowout. Watch Marvin Williams' status for tomorrow, but Bridges is probably a good play for some all-around value again tomorrow. Dwayne Bacon also helped tonight with four threes on his way to 18 points on 7-of-11 from the field.

Miles Bridges collected 10 points, five rebounds, five assists, a steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in Sunday's win over the Pistons.
Bridges moved over to power forward with Marvin Williams and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist both out, and his first look there turned out nicely. He's got the versatility to play a number of positions going forward and is a fine low-end play for the cash counters from here on out. We wouldn't expect Bridges to get a night off if Charlotte is eliminated before their final game, either, if that's a potential concern for you.
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.
April 1, 2019, 11:44 pmMiles Bridges - F - Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges went scoreless on Monday, shooting 0-for-5 from the floor to go with five rebounds and a steal.
Bridges cooled off in a big way tonight against an elite defense, but is still worth owning considering the Hornets don't really have anyone else stepping up with his poor play. The team is free falling currently and Bridges has nowhere to go but up.

Miles Bridges stayed hot on Friday night with 17 points on 7-for-11 shooting, five assists, three triples and one steal.
Over the last two weeks Bridges is averaging 29.3 mpg, 12 ppg, 6.6 rpg, 1.4 spg and 1.6 3pg on 56.3 percent shooting – good for top-40 production in 9-cat leagues. After struggling when first placed in the starting lineup, Bridges seems to be finding a groove. While the shooting may be unsustainable, Bridges is worth rostering during this hot streak.
March 26, 2019, 10:03 pmMiles Bridges - F - Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges collected 10 points, five rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers in Tuesday's win over the Spurs.
Bridges is coming off a run of top-50 value in 9-cat leagues and tonight's line won't hurt the cause. Make sure he's rostered in all formats.
March 24, 2019, 8:44 pmMiles Bridges - F - Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges is having the finest stretch of his rookie campaign with Sunday’s matchup against the Raptors culminating in a stuffed box score with 16 points, two triples, six boards, a block, a steal and an assist.
Bridges has been a top-45 value over his last four games and it’s all thanks to his strong steals and triples. The Hornets are playing hungry given their playoff chances are at stake with every game.

Miles Bridges put up 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting in Saturday's win over the Celtics, adding seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and three 3-pointers to his line in 34 minutes.
He logged 34 minutes this time and played the second-most minutes behind Kemba Walker. Although, the increased opportunities and minutes is a direct result of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion protocol) being out for tonight.
March 21, 2019, 9:45 pmMiles Bridges - F - Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges notched his first career double-double against the Wolves on Thursday with 11 points and 12 rebounds while adding four assists, two steals and a 3-pointer.
Bridges went 5-for-8 from the floor and logged 30 minutes which was the second highest on the team only behind Kemba Walker. He's still a bit unreliable due to the fact that Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion protocol) could return by Saturday's game which would end Bridges' run.
March 19, 2019, 9:50 pmMiles Bridges - F - Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges shot 4-for-10 from the field for eight points with 10 boards, two assists and two steals in 29 minutes in a 118-114 loss to the Sixers on Tuesday.
Bridges continues to start but his minutes are all over the board. He had 29 minutes tonight, but he combined for just 26 minutes in his last two games as a starter and put up duds, so he can't be relied on at this time.
March 10, 2019, 12:22 amMiles Bridges - F - Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges put up 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Bucks, adding six rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer to his line in 26 minutes.
Bridges has been starting but it hasn't made much difference for his fantasy value. The minutes have remained fluid with Jeremy Lamb dropping big numbers and maintaining the lion's share of the playing time. Bridges has a nice long-term fantasy outlook but standard-league value might not be happening this year unless Charlotte collapses. Lamb had a decent night with 14 points, four boards, three dimes and a block in 27 minutes.

Miles Bridges made his second consecutive start on Saturday but dropped a dud as he picked up four fouls and was limited to 12 minutes of action.
Bridges posted four points and four rebounds in his short stint tonight. James Borrgeo made it sound like this new lineup is going to stick because he likes what Bridges and Jeremy Lamb bring to each of their new units, so there's no panicking here. He's not a must-add in 12-team leagues but his well-rounded games does give him a chance at late-round numbers.
February 23, 2019, 1:21 pmMiles Bridges - F - Charlotte Hornets
It appears as though the Hornets' lineup swap of Miles Bridges and Jeremy Lamb is likely to stick going forward.
It's more than a one-game aberration, which isn't surprising since the Hornets have basically been using the same four starters all season and only needed to deviate from their core five when Cody Zeller got hurt. Bridges will give the team more size and switchability on the defensive end, and he'll occasionally be asked to take the opponent's top perimeter player — a responsibility that previously fell on Nic Batum. Batum will move back to his more natural position of shooting guard. Lamb will take on a larger offensive burden in the second unit, and that may enable the Hornets to lean less heavily on their starters. He played 23 minutes last night, which is less than usual, but still scored his typical 16 points. It sounds like the swap might enable both Lamb and Bridges to hold legitimate fantasy value. Lamb remains a hold and Bridges is worth a flier in 12-team leagues after his strong performance last night (14 points, six rebounds, three steals, one block and a 3-pointer).
