Hernangomez, due to a death in the family, will not play in the remainder of summer league.
Understandably, Hernangomez will leave the team to take personal time. Through four summer league games, he averaged 18.3 points, 12.0 rebounds and 1.8 blocks.
Hernangoemez posted 18 points (7-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists and two blocked shots across 26 minutes in Wednesday's 87-69 Vegas Summer League playoff win over the Warriors.
Henangomex was one of three Hornet frontcourt players to post double-digit scoring in the blowout over the Warriors. He also posted his fourth straight double-double in the summer series, The departure of Dwight Howard could open up more opportunities for the Spaniard, but a lot will depend on how Frank Kaminsky is utilized next season.
Hernangomez scored 17 points (7-15 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, three blocks and two steals in 27 minutes during Monday's 100-80 summer league loss to the Celtics.
The 24-year-old big has dominated the paint for the Hornets' Vegas squad, posting double-doubles in three straight games. Hernangomez won't see this kind of court time in the regular season, though, as he sits at best third on the Charlotte depth chart at center, so despite his impressive summer performances don't expect a big improvement on his career averages (6.9 points, 5.7 boards in 15.2 minutes per game).
Hernangomez had 22 points (10-18 FG, 1-4 3PT, 1-1 FT) and 10 rebounds in Sunday's summer league win over Miami.
Hernangomez also had a double-double on Friday and has been among the top performers in Vegas, which shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. The former-Knick also added two assists and a steal in 29 minutes of action Sunday.
Hernangomez finished with 16 points (3-10 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 10-12 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 28 minutes during Friday's 88-87 summer league victory over the Thunder.
With Dwight Howard no longer in Charlotte, Hernangomez will have more opportunities for playing time, making Friday's effort worth noting. It's unclear if he intends to shoot more threes this season (9-for-27 for his career), but it could be a trend worth monitoring for Fantasy purposes.
