    Hornets' Kemba Walker: Scores game-high 30 points in Monday's win

Against a depleted Bulls back court, Walker took full advantage by scoring his highest point total in eight games.

    Hornets' Kemba Walker: Scores 23 points in Saturday win

    Walker had 23 points (8-20 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five assists, five rebounds and a steal in 35 minutes on Saturday in a win against the Wizards. Walker had a decent night on Saturday, but he could have done a bit more in the up-tempo setting against one of the worst defenses in the NBA. It was only two weeks ago that Walker was the toast of the fantasy kingdom, but with the Hornets' roster getting healthier by the day, he hasn't been asked to do as much. Walker still remains one of the best point guards in the league and better performances lie ahead on the horizon. Next up, the Hornets face the Bulls on Monday and Walker will be in a favorable matchup.

    Walker (knee) recorded 20 points (7-18 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists, five rebounds, and two steals in 36 minutes during the Hornets' 98-95 loss to the Heat on Friday. Walker was forced to sit out Wednesday's win over the Cavaliers due to knee soreness. However, after having fluid removed from his knee he was able to practice Thursday, and he was deemed probable in advance of Friday's game versus the Heat. Walker has been struggling from the field lately, with averages of 15.3 points on 38 percent from the field to go with five rebounds, 4.3 assists, and 1.8 steals in 31 minutes per game over his last four appearances.

    Hornets' Kemba Walker: Questionable for Friday

    Walker (knee) is considered questionable for Friday's game against the Heat. Walker's left knee soreness was enough to keep him sidelined for Wednesday's win over the Cavaliers, and he could be held out of Friday's contest as well. If Walker is forced to miss his second game of the season due to injury, Jeremy Lin figures to be in line for ball-handling duties once again. Fantasy owners should continue to monitor the situation until more information regarding Walker's status is released on Friday.

    Hornets' Kemba Walker: Considered questionable vs. Cavs

    Walker is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against Cleveland due to a sore left knee. Walker sprained his ankle midway through January, but this is the first we've heard of any recent knee issues. The 25-year-old played 33 minutes in Sunday's win over the Lakers, finishing with 12 points, seven rebounds and six assists, though he shot just 3-of-14 from the field. In the event that Walker is held out or limited, Brian Roberts and Jeremy Lin would stand to see increased minutes.

    Hornets' Kemba Walker: Struggles from field for second straight game

    Walker contributed 24 points (5-25 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 13-15 FT), eight assists, four rebounds, four steals, and one block across 45 minutes in Monday's 129-128 double-overtime win over the Kings. If not for his ability to draw contact and get to the free-throw line with regularity, Walker's fantasy line would have been far less satisfying for those who were counting on him in DFS. Though he's put up at least 25 shot attempts in four of the last five games, his efficiency has declined dramatically since he going off for 52- and 40-point games on Jan. 18 and Jan. 22. He's gone a woeful 12-for-50 from the field (24%) and 4-for-17 from three-point range (23.5%) in his last two games, but is still providing 25 points, 6.5 assists, five rebounds, 2.5 steals, and one block during that span. As a result, his fantasy value is substantially higher in points leagues.
