Hornets' Brian Roberts: Questionable vs. Heat
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Roberts (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Friday's matchup with the Heat.

Roberts missed the season opener against Milwaukee on Wednesday, contradicting earlier reports that he'd be cleared in time to be available off the bench. The general belief seems to be that the veteran should be able to return Friday, barring a setback, but an update likely won't come until after morning shootaround. If he's held out again, Ramon Sessions would receive most of the backup minutes behind starting point guard Kemba Walker.

Hornets' Frank Kaminsky: Deemed questionable for Friday's game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kaminsky (foot) has been deemed questionable to play Friday against Miami.

After missing Wednesday's season opener with a sprained right foot, the big man's status heading into the weekend remains clouded. Kaminsky was able to work out at Thursday's practice and was observed going through sprints, skips and shuffle cuts without noticeable restriction. Even so, Charlotte will likely wait until shootaround Friday morning to make a decision, and if Kaminsky is ultimately held out again, expect to see more of Spencer Hawes and Cody Zeller off the bench. In Wednesday's matchup with the Bucks, Hawes scored four points in 13 minutes, while Zeller tallied 15 points in 14 minutes.

Hornets' Marvin Williams: Produces double-double in return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (finger) tallied 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt), 10 rebounds, two assists and one block across 29 minutes in Wednesday's 107-96 win over the Bucks.

Williams showed no ill effects of the broken middle finger he sustained to his non-shooting hand late in the preseason, as he was accurate from distance and was effective in grappling for rebounds. The Hornets were without the services of backup power forward Frank Kaminsky (foot) on Wednesday and may not be able to count on his return for their weekend back-to-back set, so Williams could be asked to pick up a few extra minutes over the next couple of games.

Hornets' Cody Zeller: Scores 15 points in 14 minutes off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeller (knee) provided 15 points (5-6 FG, 5-6 FT), three rebounds, two blocks and an assist across 14 minutes in Wednesday's 107-96 win over the Bucks.

Aside from racking up five fouls, Zeller's return from a bone bruise in his right knee that had sidelined him for the entire preseason couldn't have gone any better. Zeller has shown incremental improvement through his first three seasons in the league, but his path to raising his game to greater heights in 2016-17 endured some complications with the injury. While he fared well in the opener, coach Steve Clifford went with Roy Hibbert as his starting center, and the veteran responded with a huge outing (15 points, nine boards, five blocks in 32 minutes). That performance should be enough to keep Hibbert atop the depth chart for a little while, though Zeller figures to cut into his workload as the Hornets gradually relax his playing-time restrictions.

Hornets' Roy Hibbert: Dominates interior in win over Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hibbert generated 15 points (6-9 FG, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, five blocks and three assists across 32 minutes in Wednesday's 107-96 win over the Bucks.

Although Cody Zeller (knee) was cleared to play in the season opener, because of the extensive time he missed in the preseason, Hibbert was awarded the start at center. Zeller excelled during his time on the floor with 15 points in 14 minutes, but Hibbert didn't concede any ground in the battle for minutes at the position, turning in a dominant performance on both ends of the court. Considering that Hibbert was one of the league's worst-performing starting centers during his time with the Lakers last season, we're skeptical he'll be able to maintain the level of performance he displayed Wednesday. Look for Zeller to eventually cut into Hibbert's workload, if not replace him in the starting lineup.
