Hornets' Johnny O'Bryant: Out Friday vs. Cavaliers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Bryant (ankle) is listed as out in the game notes for Friday's tilt with the Cavaliers.

O'Bryant hasn't played since March 8 while he's nursed the right ankle sprain, missing seven straight games during that span. It doesn't appear he's quite yet ready to play, but even once O'Bryant is healthy, he'll be a negligible part of the team's rotation now that the Hornets top three big men -- Marvin Williams, Frank Kaminsky and Cody Zeller -- are back to full strength.

Hornets' Marco Belinelli: Efficient in win vs. Magic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belinelli scored 20 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT) with three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 21 minutes in a 109-102 win over the Magic on Wednesday.

Belinelli's 20 points led all bench scorers in the game, and it was his highest scoring night dating all the way back to a 22 point game on Nov. 19. An inordinate number of free throws allowed the Italian guard to rack up points quickly and efficiently-- his eight attempts were his most of the season. Belinelli is a decent NBA bench player as he consistently gets over 20 minutes of run, but he has done little to prove his fantasy value in even deeper leagues over the course of the season. It's probably safest to consider this game an outlier and move along.

Hornets' Kemba Walker: Scores game-high 22 in win vs. Magic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker posted 22 points (8-21 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven assists and three rebounds across 33 minutes in Wednesday's 109-102 win over the Magic.

Walker finally eclipsed the 20 point mark after failing to do so in his previous three games, but at 38.1 percent from the field, he wasn't all that efficient in getting there. The All Star point guard has failed to break 40 percent from the field in any his past six contests, meaning we can safely classify this recent stretch as a shooting slump. Despite his shot being off, Walker distributed the ball the best he has in four games-- he recorded just one turnover against his seven assists.

Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Will play Wednesday vs. Magic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) will play in Wednesday's game against the Magic.

Kidd-Gilchrist was listed a probable headed into Wednesday's contest, so his availability does not come as a surprise, and he should be in line for a regular workload in Orlando. His limitations offensively, however, continue to put a limit on his overall fantasy value, despite Kidd-Gilchrist playing around 30 minutes per game this season.

Hornets' Miles Plumlee: Still out Wednesday vs. Magic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plumlee (calf) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

Plumlee was able to take part in some on-court workouts a week ago, but it's still uncertain how close he actually is to playing again. The fifth-year center is averaging just 2.6 points and 2.0 rebounds in 10.2 minutes per game over 37 appearances this season, so he won't hold much value in deeper leagues once he's healthy again.
