Hernangomez tallied 19 points (8-11 FG, 3-5 FT), 13 rebounds and two blocked shots across 30 minutes Sunday in a loss to the Lakers. New Orleans limped to the end of the regular season with injuries to many of its stars, allowing Hernangomez a larger role to put his skills on display. The big man started 10 of the Pelicans' final 11 games, registering five double-doubles and averaging 11.8 points, 9.9 boards and 1.0 steals over that span.
Hernangomez recorded 12 points (3-5 FG, 6-8 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and a steal across 26 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Mavericks. Hernangomez has started in each of his last seven appearances and has looked serviceable on both ends of the court, posting four double-doubles and scoring in double digits in all but one of those games. He's averaging 11.7 points and 10.3 rebounds per game in that seven-game span with Steven Adams (toe) sidelined.
Hernangomez totaled 15 points (6-14 FG, 3-6 FT), eight rebounds and four assists in a 115-110 loss to the Grizzlies on Monday. Hernangomez was able to score 15-plus points for just the third time this season despite being somewhat inefficient from the field. The center had converted at least 50.0 percent of his shot attempts in seven consecutive games before Monday's contest. Hernangomez has averaged 11.1 points and 9.6 rebounds across his last eight games.
Hernangomez had nine points (4-8 FG, 1-2 FT), 16 rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block in Sunday's win over the Hornets. Making another start in place of Steven Adams (toe), Hernangomez turned in a strong all-around fantasy line in just 22 minutes of action. He's split time with Jaxson Hayes (26 minutes Sunday) over the last few games, and that will likely continue Monday as the Pels play at Memphis on the second half of the back-to-back.
Hernangomez registered 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and two steals over 24 minutes in Friday's 109-107 loss to the 76ers. Hernangomez tied his career high with the five assists and has managed to score in double figures in four consecutive games -- all starts. Over that span, Hernangomez is averaging 11.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.3 steals per game with two double-doubles. As long as Steven Adams is dealing with a toe injury, Hernangomez will continue to see playing time.
