Key Fantasy Players

We've broken down player data for key Charlotte Hornets fantasy basketball players including projections, projections per 36 minutes, last season's averages, and last season's averages when playing between 20-30 minutes as well as between 30-40 minutes.

Nicolas Batum (SG/SF)

Batum continues to be underrated in fantasy circles because he doesn't score in huge amounts, but he continues to be a top contributor in almost every other category. Last season he led the team in assists, pulled down 6 rebounds and hit just under 2 3s a game.

Dwight Howard (PF/C)

You generally know what you're going to get with a motivated Dwight Howard, and if he can stay motivated he's a walking double-double with 1.5 blocks and terrible free-throw percentages, but can he stay motivated?

Kemba Walker (PG)

Kemba is still an eliete option at point guard, just don't expect his assist numbers to rise too much.
