Hornets' Marco Belinelli: Drops 22 points Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Belinelli scored 22 points (7-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT) while adding three rebounds and two assists across 32 minutes in Friday's 112-105 loss to the Cavaliers.

Belinelli now has recorded 20 points in consecutive games for the first time on the season as it was just his third game where he's hit the 20-point plateau on the season. Known for being a prolific shooter, it's weird that more nights like Friday's haven't happened this season, but Belinelli showed why he's considered in fantasy formats. It's hard to believe he will keep up the production for much longer since he's been given the minutes all year to do just that, but has failed to perform consistently.

Hornets' Cody Zeller: Registers double-double Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeller scored 15 points (6-6 FG, 3-7 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 32 minutes in Friday's 112-105 loss to the Cavaliers.

Although a tall center, Zeller has not reached 10 rebounds in a game all that much on the year as Friday night marked his eighth game where he accomplished that feat. He's been a consistent starter for the Hornets and doesn't have to worry about minutes, so if he can grab more rebounds and hit five of his 10 shots he shoots on average in a game, he can be a more utilized fantasy option.

Hornets' Kemba Walker: Scores team-high 28 points Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker collected 28 points (10-20 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block across 39 minutes in Friday's 112-105 loss to the Cavaliers.

The points continue to pour in for Walker on the year, but he has struggled to contribute in other categories lately. He's eclipsed five assists three times in the last six games, which shouldn't be hard to do regularly for a point guard of his ability. Walker remains a great fantasy option due to his knack for finding the bottom of the net, but he won't be a premier fantasy point guard until he contributes more assists and rebounds.

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.
