Terry Rozier (left knee) will not play in Wednesday's preseason finale vs. the Pistons.
Rozier is dealing with some tendinitis that will force him to miss the last game of the preseason. It is likely that the Hornets are being extra cautious as the regular season is around the corner. Expect Rozier to start at point guard once the real games start. Devonte' Graham and Malik Monk are two guys to look at for DFS lineups on Wednesday with Graham having the higher upside.

Terry Rozier dropped 24 points with seven boards, eight assists, two steals and four 3-pointers against the Grizzlies on Monday.
Rozier went 9-for-15 from the floor and is the prized player Charlotte signed after losing Kemba Walker to the Celtics in free agency. He's not going to shoot this well during the season, but the volume of his stats will be there and is worth drafting in the middle rounds for owners who can stomach the percentages.

Dwayne Bacon led the Hornets in scoring on Monday with 21 points on 7-of-13 shooting to go with three rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers.
Nicolas Batum (sore right Achilles) sat this one out as well and Bacon should have ample opportunity to put up counting stats. The efficiency won't be this nice and Malik Monk (18 minutes, 10 points, two triples, two rebounds, an assist, two steals and two blocks) will also have a crack at guard minutes.

Terry Rozier scored 10 points on 5-for-15 shooting to go along with two assists, one rebound and one steal in Friday's loss to the Sixers.
It was an all-around clunker for Rozier, who was inefficient and unproductive. Fellow starting guard Dwayne Bacon was also inefficient (4-for-12) but at least went to the line 10 times and finished with 17 points, five rebounds, one assist and one three.

Terry Rozier scored 18 points with four rebounds in a loss to the Heat on Wednesday.
Rozier shot 7-of-12 from the field and 2-of-4 from three. Rozier only added one assist in this contest but should have more than that most games. Rozier should produce big counting stats this season but will be a drag on field goal percentage.

Terry Rozier got off to a hot start in the Hornets preseason opener on Sunday, scoring nine points on 3-of-7 shooting, with nine assists, two steals and one block.
Scary Terry showed no fear against his former Celtics teammates during his 22 minutes of action. Everyone expects Rozier to post plenty of counting stats, but if he can deliver nine assists a game he will be a nice pick in the middle rounds. Game one was a success for Rozier, but it would be a surprise to see him produce a 9:0 assist-turnover ratio for a second time this year.

Coach Borrego plans to play Terry Rozier 30-plus minutes a night and all 82 games.
'When he goes from playing 18 minutes a night to 30-plus, I’m going to have to manage him the next day,' Borrego said of Rozier. 'I want him to play 82 games, stay healthy and have energy every single night.' Rozier is going to put up a lot of counting stats but be a huge blow to your field goal percentage. Keep that in mind when you consider him in the middle rounds of standard-league drafts.

Terry Rozier knew his role would expand after he was acquired by the Hornets, but it appears the point guard will be seeing a huge spike in minutes during his first season in Charlotte, according to head coach James Borrego.
Rozier had a down season in 2018-19 playing behind Kyrie Irving. He now has the opportunity to start for the Hornets who are excited to see what the rugged defender can do on a permanent role. For his career, Rozier has averages of 14.4 points and 5.1 assists as a starter and efficiency will be the key that will determine his fantasy value this year.

In an interview with Bleacher Report, Terry Rozier discussed how he ultimately signed with the Hornets over the Knicks and Suns due in part to Michael Jordan wanting him.
Rozier discussed how he believed he was signing with the Knicks the night before free agency and then with the Suns the day of. Instead, in the eleventh hour, he chose the Hornets in large part because Jordan told GM Mitch Kupchak to do whatever was necessary to sign him. The Hornets did just that and are now saddled with Rozier making near $20 million over the next three years. He'll be in new territory as Charlotte's clear number one option this upcoming season, and is a safe bet to put up huge numbers – though may struggle with percentages – in what is widley expected to be several losing efforts.

Terry Rozier is now officially a Hornet after the Celtics announced the sign-and-trade deal for Kemba Walker.
Rozier lands in an ideal situation for a nice bump in value with the Hornets. That said, he'll need to overcome stat set issues in order to become a true fantasy force in 2019-20, but the opportunity is definitely there.

Terry Rozier has reached an agreement on a fully-guaranteed, three-year, $58 million contract with the Hornets.
Rozier looks like Charlotte's starting point guard for the foreseeable future. That's a lot of money for a guy who has exhibited serious efficiency issues and is coming off a terrible season, and the Hornets appear to be reeling after losing Kemba Walker. Rozier is going to have plenty of opportunity to rack up numbers on a bad Hornets squad but your appetite for him as a fantasy prospect will depend entirely on his efficiency.

Terry Rozier will agree to a three-year, $58 million contract and be sent to the Hornets via sign-and-trade, per Shams Charania.
That's quite a check for Rozier, who is coming off a frustrating season where his production suffered. The Hornets are likely to plug Scary Terry in as their starter as they embark on a painful rebuild. From a fantasy perspective, there are concerns about the damage Rozier can do to percentages when he's given a ton of usage, but the counting stats should certainly be there. Hopefully he's more good Scary than bad Scary for Charlotte.

The Celtics, Nets and Hornets have engaged in exploratory talks on a three-team sign-and-trade deal that would send Kyrie Irving to Brooklyn, Kemba Walker to Boston and Terry Rozier to Charlotte.
The Celtics want to create a full mid-level exception to help them add other players in free agency but it would likely cost them a first-round pick in the process. With two of the transactions here just about set in stone, it's now about recuperating additional assets, whether they be picks or cap space, if at all possible. If this does happen it would be a highly complicated transaction.

Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe is reporting that the Mavs, Bulls and Magic have shown interest in Terry Rozier in addition to known suitors the Knicks, Hornets and Suns.
There were rumors last night that Rozier is Charlotte-bound but there are enough teams vying for his services that he can slow-play it if he'd like. All of these teams need some point guard help, and it looks like Rozier should be able to find himself a spot where he has good odds at a starting job. He figures to be someone that a lot of fantasy players are bullish about this upcoming year.

According to Alex Kennedy, the Knicks have had some significant interest in Terry Rozier for quite some time.
The Celtics have renounced their rights to Rozier in a move to free up cap space to sign Kemba Walker, making Rozier an unrestricted free agent. The Knics have expressed interest in Rozier in the past but the things are very fluid for most teams at the moment and Rozier's future should be determined shortly after the big-ticket free agents have been signed and accounted for.
