Hornets' Willy Hernangomez: Puts up double-double off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernangomez supplied 11 points (4-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 16 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 26 minutes Thursday in the Hornets' 114-95 win over the Kings.

Starter Bismack Biyombo went scoreless across nine minutes and the Hornets were minus-13 during his time on the court, prompting coach James Borrego to lean more heavily on Hernangomez at center. As has often been the case when he's received extended run, Hernangomez turned in double-double production, but it's hardly an indication that he'll stick in a 20-plus-minute role going forward. Hernangomez had played no more than 14 minutes in any of the Hornets' preceding four contests and could very well return to that level of playing time Saturday against the Suns.

Hornets' Willy Hernangomez: Plays just 13 minutes Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernangomez compiled just seven points, eight rebounds, and one assist in 13 minutes during Friday's 127-96 loss to Portland.

Hernangomez disappointed again Friday, seeing just 13 minutes of playing time in the embarrassing loss. When Cody Zeller (hand) went down it was hoped Hernangomez would step into a larger role. Thus far he is yet to show much on either end of the floor and he is at best a streaming option. If you are holding onto him and deciding whether to pick up a hot free agent, this performance may have made that decision a lot easier.

Hornets' Willy Hernangomez: Thrives in bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernangomez produced 19 points (8-12 FG, 3-7 FT), nine rebounds, four assists and one steal across 24 minutes in the Hornets' 119-113 win over the Suns on Sunday.

This was the type of performance the Hornets and fantasy owners were looking for from Hernangomez when he got first crack at the starting center job following Cody Zeller's hand injury on New Year's Eve. The third-year big has ceded the first-unit spot at the five to veteran Bismack Biyombo over the last two games after a six-point, 10-rebound effort against the Mavericks as a starter last Wednesday, but Sunday's production may vault him back into the top job. The difference for Hernangomez versus the Suns was shooting, with the 24-year-old posting a 66.7 percent success rate that outpaced the 40.0 percent figure he generated over the previous pair of contests. Hernangomez's next opportunity to re-enter the starting five will come Tuesday night against the Clippers.

Hornets' Willy Hernangomez: Coming off bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernangomez will come off the bench Wednesday against the Nuggets.

Coach James Borrego will opt to start Bismack Biyombo against Nikola Jokic, while bringing Hernangomez off the pine. The starting center spot may continue to change on a game-to-game basis while Cody Zeller (hand) is out.

Hornets' Willy Hernangomez: Confirmed starter Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernangomez has been confirmed as the starting center Wednesday against the Mavericks.

As expected, Hernangomez will get the nod with Cody Zeller (hand) out and will likely continue occupying the spot for the remainder of Zeller's absence. That said, coach James Borrego noted that Frank Kaminsky and Bismack Biyombo will be in the fold as well, so it's possible Hernangomez sees minutes in the low-to-mid 20s, rather than closer to 30 minutes per night. Still, Hernangomez doesn't need much time to rack up numbers. In four games this season seeing over 20 minutes, he's averaged 13.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.5 blocks while shooting 63.6 percent from the field.
