    Hornets' Brian Roberts: Leads bench with 17 points Friday

    Roberts poured in 17 points (6-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT) and hauled in two rebounds over 24 minutes in Friday's 109-91 loss to the Trail Blazers. The four-year pro got some extended time in the blowout loss, equaling a season high in minutes and putting them to good use. Roberts' season-best scoring total marked his second consecutive game with double-digit points, and only the third time overall he'd accomplished the feat this season. All three instances have occurred within the last five games, coinciding with the 30-year-old's first extended stretch of consistent, albeit modest, playing time. Whether this pattern will persist remains to be seen, but Roberts has proven capable of piling up the points in past opportunities.

    Hornets' Brian Roberts: Plays 13 minutes Monday

    Roberts recorded seven points (2-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and two assists in 13 minutes during the Hornets' 129-128 double overtime win versus the Kings on Monday. Even in a double overtime contest, Roberts only managed to log 13 minutes. He has seen his time increase to 13 minutes per appearance in January after earning six and nine minutes per game respectively in November and December. However, he should not be on fantasy radars even in the deepest leagues given his third-string point guard role.

    Hornets' Brian Roberts: Plays in fifth straight game

    Roberts scored five points (2-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go with two rebounds, one assist, and one rejection across 15 minutes in Wednesday's 111-102 loss to the Suns. All of Jeremy Lin, Nicolas Batum, and Jeremy Lamb have missed time or have been limited due to injury over the past five games, which has allowed Roberts to appear in each of those contests. He hasn't received more than 18 minutes in any of those games, however, so unless coach Steve Clifford expands Roberts' role in the rotation, the 30-year-old won't have much fantasy appeal.

    Hornets' Brian Roberts: Not seeing many minutes this season

    Roberts has played in just 10 of Charlotte's 21 games this season. Roberts hasn't gotten a lot of opportunities this season, only playing more than six minutes in two games this season, and hasn't posted more than five points or assists in any game this season. He shouldn't be looked at as a fantasy option in nearly any format, other than extremely deep leagues.

    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.
