Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Hits four treys versus Magic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum chipped in 14 points (5-11 FG, 4-7 3Pt), seven assists, five rebounds and one steal across 32 minutes during Wednesday's 104-102 win over the Magic.

Batum shot effectively from long range and made his customary useful contributions in assists and rebounds. The swing-man produced strong numbers at the start of the month, but he'd averaged just 8.7 points, four assists and 1.7 rebounds per game over his previous four. Batum will look to build on this performance Thursday against the nets.

Hornets' Jeremy Lamb: Scores 17 points versus Magic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lamb scored 17 points (6-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT) in addition to five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 26 minutes during Wednesday's 104-102 win over the Magic.

Lamb played far and away more minutes than any other Hornets reserve and finished second on the team thanks to an efficient shooting night. He's been quite consistent as a scorer of late, dropping in at least 13 points in five of his last seven games. Lamb is earning minutes at the expense of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist of late and could carve out a useful fantasy role if he can continue to perform.

Hornets' Dwight Howard: Dominates Magic with double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard delivered 22 points (9-16 FG, 4-6 FT), 13 rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 32 minutes during Wednesday's 104-102 win over the Magic.

Howard dominated a thin Orlando front line, compiling his best scoring total since Jan. 29. His output at the offensive end hasn't been quite as consistent of late, but he's remained a force on the boards and has now reached double-digit rebounds in 18 of his last 20 contests. Howard also contributed his second multi-block effort in that same time span and will see his fantasy value increase further if he can become consistent in that regard.

Hornets' Kemba Walker: Produces well-rounded line versus Magic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker scored 20 points (6-19 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT) to go along with six assists, five rebounds, four assists and one steal across 42 minutes during Wednesday's 104-102 win over the Magic.

Walker struggled with his shot a bit, but he contributed usefully in several other categories as he took on a massive workload. He's shot just 38 percent from the field over his last three games, but he's chipped in 6.7 assists, 3.7 treys and 1.7 steals per game during that stretch to help sustain his fantasy production at a high level.

Hornets' Cody Zeller: Falls short of double-double in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeller scored 10 points (4-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT) while adding eight rebounds and an assist in 19 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 123-103 loss to the Raptors.

He's averaging only 6.3 points and 5.7 boards in 17.2 minutes over six games since returning from a lengthy absence due to a knee injury, with Sunday's performance being the first time since Dec. 1 that he's scored in double digits. As long as Dwight Howard is healthy, Zeller's role and court time should remain limited, but keep in mind the 32-year-old center has missed at least 10 games in four of the last six seasons, and he hasn't managed a full 82-game schedule since 2009-10. Should Howard break down, Zeller would immediately become a very intriguing pickup.
