Roberts collected 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, one rebound and one steal across 24 minutes in Friday's 121-81 victory over the Magic. Friday night was the first night all season that Roberts has contributed more than 10 points in a game, as his shot came alive behind the arc (100 percent from three) and from the charity stripe (100 percent from the free-throw line). Although this was a solid performance from Roberts, it is hard seeing him follow it up anytime soon with his lack of minutes (8.5 minutes per game this season) and his unusually low efficiency from the floor.
Roberts scored eight points (2-3 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with two assists across 10 minutes in a 105-99 loss to the 76ers on Monday. With Ramon Sessions (knee) likely out until late March while recovering from surgery to repair a torn left meniscus, Roberts has settled in as the main backup to starting point guard Kemba Walker over the last seven contests. Roberts hasn't seen more than 15 minutes in any of those games, and that figures to remain the case so long as Walker is able to stay relatively healthy. Feel free to continue ignoring Roberts, even in most deeper leagues.
Roberts (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 110-107 loss to the Knicks on Friday. Roberts was held out of Monday's game against the Wizards while dealing with the illness, but he's been available for both of the Hornets' subsequent two contests. However, Roberts hasn't picked up any minutes in either game, as both were fairly competitive and prompted coach Steve Clifford to roll out his normal rotation. As the third-string point guard, Roberts is only likely to make appearances in garbage time of games.
Roberts will not be available for Monday's game against the Wizards. The reserve guard came down with an illness Monday morning, and the team will hold him out of action, meaning they'll be slightly shorthanded at point guard. Roberts usually serves as the team's third point guard behind Kemba Walker and Ramon Sessions, but he's seen mostly garbage time minutes of late and has racked up seven DNP-CDs in January alone.
Roberts (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 108-98 loss to the Celtics on Monday. Roberts hasn't appeared in any of the Hornets' last three games and has made only 10 appearances all season, despite not having dealt with any reported injuries since the Oct. 26 opener. As the third-string option at point guard, Roberts isn't expected to pick up minutes outside of blowout wins or losses, or if either Kemba Walker or Ramon Sessions are dealing with injuries.
