Kaminsky supplied 22 points (7-13 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, two blocks and one assist across 27 minutes in a 122-114 win over the Nuggets on Friday. Kaminsky was limited to just 20 minutes in the Hornets' previous game Wednesday against the Raptors with coach Steve Clifford working the now-healthy Miles Plumlee back into the rotation, but with Plumlee taking on a more muted role Friday, Kaminsky had more room to shine. His five three-pointers paced the Hornets on a night where the team shot a blistering 17-of-36 from downtown, and Kaminsky has now collected multiple treys in four consecutive games. Kaminsky won't make the kind of impact in the defensive categories one would expect to see from a seven-footer, but he'll be a quality source of scoring and three-pointers while serving as the Hornets' top offensive option off the bench.
Kaminsky scored 20 points (9-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt) while adding four rebounds and three assists in 28 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 118-108 loss to the Bucks. It's the second time in the last seven games Kaminsky has hit for 20 points, and the second-year center is averaging 13.7 points, 5.0 boards, 2.3 assists and 2.0 three-pointers over that stretch. he's still far from a finished product, but the 23-year-old continues to improve his numbers and could be a breakout candidate in 2017-18.
Kaminsky posted 14 points (5-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five assists, three rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 36 minutes off the bench in Monday's 105-90 win over the Hawks. Kaminsky's 14 points led all Hornets off the bench, and he actually led all Charlotte players in minutes in the game despite not starting. The second-year center from Wisconsin is averaging 16.4 points since the All Star break as he continues to establish himself as one of the league's better bench pieces. Though to be fair, he has left quite a bit to be desired as a rebounder-- he's averaging a paltry 2.6 rebounds through his five appearances in March.
Kaminsky contributed 14 points (4-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-8 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one block across 30 minutes during Saturday's 98-93 victory over the Wizards. Despite the return of Cody Zeller -- who missed 13 out of 14 games from Jan. 25 to Feb. 26 -- to the starting five, Kaminsky has still averaged 30.8 minutes per game since Zeller has come back. Kaminsky's fantasy value has risen throughout the season with his increased minutes, as he's shown an ability to beef up his stats when given additional run. Though he's averaging just 11.5 points and 4.7 rebounds across 25.9 minutes per game on the season, he's averaged 16.5 points and 6.0 rebounds across 32.6 minutes per game over his past 13 appearances. With coach Steve Clifford seemingly committed to playing Kaminsky 30 minutes per night, the three-point shooting big man is worth serious consideration in any fantasy format.
Kaminsky put up 20 points (7-15 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 5-7 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 31 minutes in Wednesday's 98-77 loss to the Pacers. Kaminsky's 20 points off the bench led the Hornets in an otherwise dreadful night from the entire roster. Wednesday marked Kaminsky's second game back since missing five games with a shoulder injury, and it was encouraging to not only see him productive, but productive in what were essentially starters' minutes. Even if Kaminsky never wrestles his starting spot back from Cody Zeller, he should continue to produce statistically as if he were on the first unit.
