Zeller provided 11 points (4-6 FG, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, and one assist across 23 minutes during Friday's 113-78 victory over the Raptors.
Zeller continued his efficient season from the floor Friday, hitting four of his six attempts from the field. The center is knocking down 58.5 percent of his field goals this season, and is averaging 10.8 points to go along with 6.5 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 26.7 minutes per game. His three rebounds Friday does leave something to be desired from the seven-footer, but it's clear that the Hornets had success without Zeller crashing the glass, and he did see about four minutes less than average in the blowout victory. The Hornets will face off against the Nets on Saturday in the second half of a back-to-back set.
Zeller, in his return from an illness, provided 16 points (6-14 FG, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals, one assist, and one block across 36 minutes during Friday's 102-93 loss to the 76ers.
After missing four of the past five games, Zeller played 36 minutes and put up 14 shots from the field, tying his season-high in both categories. He also contributed double-digit rebounds for only the fifth time this season. Chances are that he'll trend more towards the 28.8 minutes per game that he was averaging in the 10 games prior to Friday, but he was likely let loose due to having fresh legs. Zeller's numbers generally won't jump out at fantasy players, as he's averaging 10.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks on the year, but he's an efficient scorer, shooting 59.6 percent from the field.
Zeller (illness) will start Friday's contest against the 76ers without a minutes restriction, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Zeller has missed four of the past five games with an illness, but has been given the full green light for Friday's matchup. Spencer Hawes will be the likely candidate to have his minutes reduced back to the 15-minute range he was receiving prior to Zeller's absence. Zeller is averaging 10.7 points and 6.3 rebounds per game on the season.
Zeller (illness) returned to practice Thursday, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Zeller was held out of Tuesday's game against Houston, but he's since recovered from his illness and was back at practice in full capacity Thursday. The big man has missed four of the last five games, but he played 33 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday, finishing with nine points, nine rebounds, two blocks, an assist and a steal. His next chance to play will come Friday in Philadelphia.
Zeller (illness) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.
Zeller was downgraded to doubtful earlier Tuesday, so this is nothing more than a confirmation of what we already expected. He'll miss his fourth game of the Hornets' last five outings, although with another few days off for rest before Friday's tilt with the Sixers, Zeller should have ample time off to get over this most recent ailment. Look for Roy Hibbert to draw the start at center, but Spencer Hawes could take on the majority of the minutes made available despite coming off the bench.
