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...

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...

Sixers-Hornets preview: Can Joel Embiid, Sixers win three straight?

Sixers-Hornets preview: Can Joel Embiid, Sixers win three straight?

The Sixers are on the verge of their first three-game streak in years. Spencer Hawes stands in the way. Fresh off one of the most exciting Sixers wins in years, Joel Embiid and the gang are on the verge of the first three-game streak since the Michael Carter-Williams era. To get over the hump, they’ll have to navigate past a Charlotte Hornets team sputtering through the NBA’s winter doldrums. Losers of five of their last six games, the Hornets’ recent record makes it look they’re in worse shape than they probably are. Houston, San Antonio, and Cleveland are all firmly better teams,...

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...

Cody Zeller (concussion) won't play for Hornets on Thursday

Charlotte Hornets forward/center Cody Zeller (concussion protocol) is out for Thursday's game against the Detroit Pistons. What It Means: Zeller should have a decent chance of returning against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday and is worth holding onto. Spencer Hawes has averaged 9.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steals in two contests sans Zeller. Frank Kaminsky should also benefit. numberFire's algorithms prefer Kaminsky as the fantasy streamer versus Detroit, and project him to record 9.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 22.9 minutes on...
