Hamilton had eight points (4-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt), six rebounds, two blocks, one assist, and one steal in 19 minutes during Sunday's 103-95 loss to the Raptors.
After receiving a DNP-coach's decision on Friday against the Pacers, Hamilton rejoined the bench rotation and reached his average for minutes on Sunday. There isn't a ton of time available behind Brook Lopez at center, and the two big men very rarely share the floor together. As a result, Hamilton is best reserved for use in deeper leagues unless Lopez gets dealt before the trade deadline or suffers an injury.
Hamilton (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in Friday's 106-97 loss to the Pacers.
Coach Kenny Atkinson has shown a willingness to rest his big men periodically throughout the season, but Hamilton's failure to enter Friday's game looks like a pure benching, as the Nets weren't in the midst of a back-to-back set and kept things competitive. It appears Brook Lopez, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Trevor Booker are clearly ahead of Hamilton in the frontcourt pecking order, but he should still have a shot at usurping Quincy Acy and Luis Scola for spots in the rotation in future contests. Even so, with only one double-digit scoring performance in his last eight appearances, Hamilton's fantasy upside remains limited.
Hamilton will be rested for Saturday's game against the Hornets,
On the second night of a back-to-back, Hamilton will be rested, which should equate to increased minutes for Quincy Acy and Trevor Booker. Expect Hamilton to return to action Monday against the Spurs.
Hamilton will draw the start at power forward Friday against the Pelicans, Brain Lewis of the New York Post reports.
This is a spot start for Hamilton, who normally backs up Brook Lopez at the center spot. Trevor Booker (rest) will not play, and this move should allow good floor spacing for the Nets, who can use Hamilton and Lopez to shoot threes against the Pelicans.
Hamilton will join the starting five for Sunday's game against the Rockets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The Nets have opted to rest Brook Lopez on Sunday, so they'll fill the void with Hamilton, who should have the chance to see big minutes. Hamilton's added opportunity makes him an intriguing DFS play Sunday, as a guy who's more than capable of putting up a double-double when given enough minutes. That said, he'll likely share the added playing time with Luis Scola, with both players seeing a decent drop in minutes once Lopez is back.
