      Hornets' Brian Roberts: Fails to see court Wednesday

      Roberts didn't see any action for Charlotte in their 116-11 win Monday over the Nets. Roberts' numbers this season are very low in comparison to the other years of his career. Through the first 12 games, he's only averaging 2.0 points in just 6.3 minutes per game. The main reason he's seen this decline is due to the addition of Jeremy Lin this season, which puts Roberts not only behind Kemba Walker but also Lin.

      Hornets' Brian Roberts: Struggling to find minutes

      Roberts has appeared in just two of the Hornets' four games thus far, averaging 3.5 points over 9.5 minutes per contest. Roberts saw six minutes of action in Monday's 130-105 win over the Bulls, but the large margin of victory likely had much to do with his presence on the court. The offseason addition of Jeremy Lin has bumped Roberts down to third on the Hornets' depth chart at point guard, leaving him with little room to carve out much of a role in coach Steve Clifford's rotation.

      Hornets' Brian Roberts: Returning to action Monday

      Roberts (knee) will play in Monday's preseason game against the Bulls. Originally labeled as questionable for Monday's tilt, Roberts was given the go-ahead to suit up for the contest after participating in morning shootaround without complications. Roberts, who is averaging 10.2 points on 56.7 percent shooting over just 19.6 minutes per game in the preseason, is in line to serve in a backup capacity behind Kemba Walker at point guard, though he'll have to fight with offseason import Jeremy Lin for minutes off the bench.

      Hornets' Brian Roberts: Misses practice Sunday with sore knee

      Roberts missed practice Sunday with a sore knee, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. It's not exactly clear when he suffered the knee injury, but it was bad enough to keep him out of practice on Sunday. Roberts is highly questionable for Monday's preseason matchup with Bulls, but the injury shouldn't cost him any regular season time. He'll start the season backing up Kemba Walker at the point.

      Hornets PG Brian Roberts bounced back from a rough first half to lead the team's rally back from 11 points down to beat the visiting Wizards, 94-87, Thursday. Roberts missed all six of his shots in a scoreless first half, including an 0-for-5 performance from behind the 3-point line. Roberts also left the game after getting blind-sided by a pick at center court. He returned after being diagnosed with a cheek contusion. In the second half, Roberts hit five of his seven shots and scored all 12 of his points after the Hornets fell behind by 11 in the second half. Roberts scored the Hornets' last five points of the third quarter and added five in the fourth as the Hornets pulled away. Roberts also added a team-high five assists.

      Hornets' Brian Roberts ready to fill in for injured Kemba Walker

      With Hornets guard Kemba Walker out indefinitely due to knee surgery, Brian Roberts is ready to step up in his absence. It's a role that is not unfamiliar to Roberts, who started 42 games last season for the Pelicans after Jrue Holiday suffered a tibia fracture. "Here's another opportunity for me to step up and help this team win games," Roberts said Monday, per the Charlotte Observer. "It's a challenge and everybody has to step up and take a little bit more ownership. Filling that void will be a group effort." Hornets coach Steve Clifford has praised Roberts for his play in limited action this season. He averages 6.8 points and 2.1 assists and 17.4 minutes. He also shoots 37 percent from 3-point range. "Organize and score," Clifford said of Roberts' strengths. "We play with a purpose when he's in there. And with the pick-and-roll and the catch-and-shoot, he puts pressure on the defense."

      Hornets' Brian Roberts fills in nicely for Kemba Walker

      Hornets backup point guard Brian Roberts scored 17 points on 5 of 9 shooting in Charlotte 76-71 win over the Knicks Saturday. Roberts, starting in place of the injured Kemba Walker, was able to provide Charlotte the spark they needed to pick up the win. "Just to know I can come in help a team win games, that is something you can't teach," Roberts said. "Just have experience that I was fortunate enough to have last year. And it looks like I'm going to have to do that a little bit here." Roberts added three rebounds and dished out three assists on the night. "One of the advantage of bringing him here was that he started so many games last year so he's comfortable in that role," Hornets coach Steve Clifford said.
