Charlotte Hornets guard/forward Nicolas Batum (knee) and center Cody Zeller (illness) will not have a minutes limit against the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday. What It Means: Batum will likely be relied on heavily with the Hornets missing Jeremy Lamb and being losers of three straight games. Zeller was playing minutes in the mid 20s before getting knocked out with an illness, so his return will only lessen Spencer Hawes and Roy Hibbert's minutes. Batum is averaging a career-best 15.1 points and 5.8 assists to go with 7.4 rebounds and 1.1 steals over 34.5 minutes per game. He...

Nicolas Batum will not have a minutes limit Friday for Hornets

Hornets using Roy Hibbert in place of Cody Zeller

Charlotte Hornets forward/center Cody Zeller (illness) and Nicolas Batum (knee) have been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Houston Rockets. What It Means: Enter Roy Hibbert, who is expected to split time with Spencer Hawes at the five, limiting his fantasy appeal. Jeremy Lamb will continue to start for Nicolas Batum (knee), while Marco Belinelli should receive extended opportunity off the bench. Hibbert is projected to turn in 6.7 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 20.5 minutes on Tuesday night. Source: Rotoworld.com

Hornets' Cody Zeller (illness) doubtful for Tuesday

Charlotte Hornets forward/center Cody Zeller (illness) is not expected to suit up tonight against the Houston Rockets after missing Tuesday's shootaround. What It Means: If Zeller can't play, Roy Hibbert will likely move into the starting lineup, while Spencer Hawes should also see an up-tick in minutes. In six games without Zeller in the lineup this season, Hibbert is averaging only 17.8 minutes per game compared to Hawes' 26.0, so that starting designation doesn't appear especially important. If Zeller does end up playing, we project him for 12.1 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.5...

Is Roy Hibbert the Biggest Reason for Frank Kaminsky’s struggles?

This season has been a rough one for Hornets’ second-year big man Frank Kaminsky. His defense has always been a work in progress, but he has really struggled to shoot the ball all year and many nights he seems like he isn’t sure where to be on the court. Now to be fair, if you follow me on Twitter or […]

Hornets' Cody Zeller (illness, questionable) is latest victim to NBA flu season

Charlotte Hornets forward/center Cody Zeller (illness) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Houston Rockets. What It Means: NBA teams continue to fall victim to flu season, with Zeller now being the latest to see his status come into question. If sidelined, Roy Hibbert would likely start and split minutes with Spencer Hawes. As of now, Zeller is projected to turn in 11.0 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 26.6 minutes versus the Rockets on Tuesday night. His 2.7 nERD puts Zeller in the NBA's top-40, as well as second on the...

Bad Defense and Butler’s Hot Shooting: A Recipe for a 118-111 Loss

Neither the Hornets nor the Bulls were at full strength when they faced each other Monday night. Hours before the game, we received word that Cody Zeller had been ruled out and placed in concussion protocol. Roy Hibbert started in place of Zeller, one of the most important pieces to this team’s offensive identity. The home team’s second-leading scorer, Dwayne Wade, would also miss the […]
