Top Hornets News

  • Hornets' Jeremy Lamb: Struggles with shooting touch

    Lamb accrued 14 points (5-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, an assist and two steals over 26 minutes Thursday against the Kings.

    Lamb shot 35.7 percent from the field and 28.6 percent from beyond the arc, well below his season averages (44.9 percent from the floor and 34.5 percent from three this year). However, his team managed to come away with a 114-95 victory at home. Following Thursday's outing, Lamb has pieced together double-digit scoring lines in four of his previous five contests, and he's averaging 6.0 rebounds along with 1.5 assists over that brief span.

  • Hornets' Miles Bridges: Surprisingly effective off bench

    Bridges tallied 15 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds and an assist across 22 minutes Thursday against Sacramento.

    Bridges shot a solid 66.7 percent from the field drained one of three attempts from deep in a 114-95 victory. The 20-year-old was one of a few bench players who turned in big nights, as the Hornets bench accounted for 75 of their 114 points. Thursday marked Bridges' first double-digit scoring performance since Dec. 15, and he's averaging just 3.6 points along with 3.7 boards and 1.1 assists through eight contests in January.

  • Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Posts strong bench effort

    Kidd-Gilchrist racked up 15 points (4-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-7 FT), two rebounds, an assist and two steals across 30 minutes Thursday against Sacramento.

    Kidd-Gilchrist managed to respond in a positive manner after being bottled up for just three points in his previous contest Monday in San Antonio. He shot an impressive 57.1 percent from the field and drained all seven of his attempts from the charity stripe in a 114-95 win. It's also worth noting that Charlotte's bench accounted for well over half of the Hornets' points on the night (75 of 114). Despite this strong showing from Kidd-Gilchrist, he's averaging just 7.7 points and 4.8 rebounds through 36 games this season.

  • Hornets' Kemba Walker: Scores team-high 23 points

    Walker poured in 23 points (9-21 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and registered four rebounds along with five assists and a block across 29 minutes Thursday against the Kings.

    Walker enjoyed a respectable 42.9 percent success rate from the field and shot 30.0 percent from beyond the arc, but it was Charlotte's bench that had a huge night in a 114-95 victory. They accounted for 75 of the Hornets' 114 points. Aside from an impressive bench performance, Walker has also been solid of late, averaging 23.6 points, 3.2 boards, 4.4 assists and 1.0 steal in his previous five contests.

  • Hornets' Cody Zeller: Progresses to on-court activities

    Zeller (hand) has progressed to on-court activities, Rod Boone of The Athletic reports.

    Zeller remains unsure about how long he'll be sidelined, but his progression to on-court activities is encouraging. His initial timetable has him set to return sometime in early-to-mid February, and there's nothing to indicate that's changed.

  • Hornets' Jeremy Lamb: Posts best numbers since return

    Lamb scored 19 points (8-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in 31 minutes during Monday's 108-93 win over the Spurs.

    It's his best performance in four games since returning to the court from a minor hamstring injury. Lamb is enjoying the best season of his career playing Robin to Kemba Walker's Batman, and he remains on pace for new personal bests in points, boards, steals and three-pointers.

  • Hornets' Kemba Walker: Big night in San Antonio

    Walker scored a game-high 33 points (13-27 FG, 7-13 3Pt) while adding five assists, four rebounds and two steals in 37 minutes during Monday's 108-93 win over the Spurs.

    As per usual, Walker got little help on offense -- only two other Hornets even scored in double digits -- but a strong team defensive effort proved to be the difference. Walker's seven three-pointers tied his season high, a mark he's reached four other times so far in 2018-19, while he poured in 30-plus points for the 13th time in 43 games.

  • Hornets' Tony Parker: Set for return to San Antonio

    Parker will return to the rotation Monday night against the Spurs after resting Saturday in Sacramento, Michael Wright of ESPN reports.

    Coach James Borrego indicated over the weekend that he would sit Parker down for Saturday's game in an effort to ensure he's as close to 100 percent as possible for Monday's return to San Antonio, where Parker spent the first 17 seasons of his illustrious career. At age 36, Parker's role has diminished, but he's found consistent minutes as the backup to Kemba Walker in Charlotte, where he's averaging just a shade under 19 minutes per game for the season. Parker is only relevant in deeper formats, with his lack of three-point shooting and pedestrian free throw percentage (69.7% FT) hampering his already-limited fantasy value.

  • Hornets' J.P. Macura: Dispatched to G League

    Macura was assigned to the G League's Greensboro Swarm on Monday.

    Macura, one of the Hornets' two two-way players, received his first taste of NBA action over the past week and a half while Jeremy Lamb tended to a hamstring injury. The rookie out of Xavier made only one appearance during his stint with the parent club, producing four points, two rebounds and two assists in a 14-minute outing Jan. 2 against Dallas. With Lamb now healthy, Macura wasn't needed for further insurance on the wing.

  • Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Blocks three shots Saturday

    Biyombo produced four points (2-3 FG), 10 rebounds, three blocks, and one assist in 25 minutes during Saturday's 104-97 loss to Sacramento.

    Biyombo continues to start for the Hornets in the absence of Cody Zeller (hand). He managed to block three shots and pull down 10 rebounds but that is where the good news ends. It appears Biyombo and Willy Hernangomez are simply going to cut into each other's value until Zeller returns, making both of them very difficult to roster in anything but a deeper format.

  • Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Solid production Saturday

    Batum ended with 13 points (4-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), nine rebounds, five assists, two steals, and one block in 27 minutes during Saturday's 104-97 loss to the Kings.

    Batum had one of his better games of the season Saturday, contributing across the board in the seven-point loss. This season has been far from exceptional for the veteran who had been hyped during the preseason with his move back to his more natural position. He is averaging just 8.9 points per game, hitting just 3.3 field goals. The Hornets would love to have some more offense from Batum but at this stage, it appears as though his high-volume scoring days are behind him.

  • Hornets' Kemba Walker: Lone hand yet again

    Walker finished with 31 points (11-24 FG, 3-12 3Pt, 6-8 FT), four assists, one rebound, and one steal in 34 minutes during Saturday's 104-97 loss to Sacramento.

    Walker was once again the primary scorer for the Hornets, dropping almost a third of the teams' total output. The Hornets have now lost five of their past six games and Walker is being called upon to do the heavy lifting on a nightly basis. His owners love the production but his efficiency has certainly tapered off, subsequently hurting his overall value.
