Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Productive in Thursday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum scored 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt) while adding seven assists, five rebounds, a steal and a block in 32 minutes during Thursday's 111-96 win over the Nets.

It was a fairly typical line for Batum, who hasn't scored more than 15 points in any of the last six games. His ability to contribute in every category on any given night gives him some fantasy appeal, but his role in the Hornets' offense is decidedly secondary to that of Kemba Walker or Dwight Howard.

Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Scores 13 in Thursday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kidd-Gilchrist scored 13 points (4-7 F, 5-5 FT) while adding five rebounds, an assist and a block in 24 minutes during Thursday's 111-96 win over the Nets.

His workload took a dip right before the All-Star break and it was more of the same for MKG right after it, although he was able to be productive in his limited minutes. In an offense dominated by Kemba Walker on the outside and Dwight Howard down low, there aren't many looks left over for Kidd-Gilchrist, who'd scored in single digits in seven straight games heading into the break -- making him a very difficult player to roster in most fantasy formats.

Hornets' Kemba Walker: Pours in game-high 31 in Thursday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker scored 31 points (12-22 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding seven assists and two steals in 35 minutes during Thursday's 111-96 win over the Nets.

It's the 10th time in 2017-18 he's dropped 30 or more points, with five of those performances coming in the last 11 games. Walker's not quite as consistent as the truly elite scorers in the league, but he's failed to score in double digits only twice all season, with the last such game coming back on Dec. 18.

Hornets' Dwight Howard: Rips down season-high 24 boards in Thursday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard scored 15 points (6-14 FG, 3-7 FT) while adding 24 rebounds, an assist and a block in 30 minutes during Thursday's 111-96 win over the Nets.

Brooklyn's undersized frontcourt was helpless to stop Howard on the glass, and he set a new season high in boards despite saying after the game that his legs felt "wobbly" coming out of the All-Star break. The double-double was his third straight and 37th of the season, and if the veteran center can stay healthy he could be headed for an impressive finish to the campaign.

Hornets' Malik Monk: Cleared to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Monk (upper body) is not on the injury report in advance of Thursday's tilt against the Nets.

Monk suffered upper body injuries over the All-Star break due to a car accident, which resulted in him missing most of Tuesday's practice. But, he's apparently recovered enough to be active for Thursday's contest. That said, he's been in and out of the rotation lately, playing in just three of the team's past seven games, averaging 4.7 minutes when he does see the floor.
