Roy Hibbert scored a season-high 16 points during Wednesday's home win , hitting 7-of-8 field goals with six boards and two blocks in 22 minutes.
This was Hibbert's highest-scoring game all season, topping a 15-point performance on Oct. 26, which says plenty about his lack of offensive appeal. He's not worth owning in the vast majority of leagues. Jan 18 - 10:56 PM

Roy Hibbert was a DNP-CD on Monday due to the matchup against the Celtics.

Coach Steve Clifford said it had to do with the Celtics bigs taking jumpers. For now, it looks like he'll be playing on Wednesday against the Blazers, but obviously has very little fantasy value.
Jan 18 - 5:52 PM

Roy Hibbert moved back to the bench on Friday with four points and one rebound in 10 minutes.

Not that anyone used Hibbert for his start on Tuesday, but he looked pretty bad in this game. At least only two of his four fouls came against Joel Embiid -- the other two were against Sergio Rodriguez and Robert Covington. Hibbert won't have much value all season.
Jan 13 - 9:43 PM

Roy Hibbert will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rockets, with Cody Zeller (illness) unavailable.

The Hornets will go with a starting five of Kemba Walker, Jeremy Lamb, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Marvin Williams and Hibbert for tonight's game, but Hibbert will likely split minutes with Spencer Hawes, so he can't be considered a viable target in most leagues.

Roy Hibbert moved to the bench against the Spurs on Saturday with 10 points and five rebounds.

With Cody Zeller back and looking at minutes in the low 30s, that should only keep Hibbert in the mid-teens. Despite coach Steve Clifford talking up Hibbert in the preseason, he hasn't provided much offense. He needs a lot of things to go his way to have fantasy value in most leagues.
Jan 8 - 1:22 AM

Roy Hibbert earned another fill-in start on Wednesday, finishing a 123-112 home win with three points, two rebounds, two blocks and five personal fouls.

Cody Zeller (concussion) was out tonight, which allowed Hibbert to play 21 minutes with the starting unit, compared to his typical 15.8 minutes per game. The Hornets have also turned to Spencer Hawes and Frank Kaminsky for help at center, and there's no upside to owning Hibbert at this point in his career.
Jan 4 - 10:00 PM

Roy Hibbert started at center with Cody Zeller dealing with a concussion, but had just six points, zero rebounds and zero blocks in 22 minutes.

He looks done and the fact this is all he could manage with a start and so many minutes is very concerning. Maybe he'll get hot if Zeller continues to miss games, but the outlook for that actually happening (Hibbert getting hot) is not good.
Jan 2 - 11:51 PM

Roy Hibbert will be in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Bulls.

Cody Zeller (concussion) is out, so Hibbert may be able to flirt with minutes in the mid-20s tonight as he splits time at the five-spot with Spencer Hawes. However, through five starts this year, Hibbert owns unimpressive averages of 6.2 points, 3.2 boards and 1.0 block per game, so he's not a very attractive target in most leagues despite the increased opportunity.
Jan 2 - 6:41 PM

Roy Hibbert missed all six shots from the field and went 3-of-6 from the line on Friday, adding five rebounds and three blocks.

The Hornets talked up his offense and called it underrated during the preseason, but here we are. Hibbert has scored just 4.3 points per game over his last four. The blocks are nice and it actually moved him to 1.0 on the year, but he's not worth owning in majority of leagues.

Roy Hibbert's knees are finally close to 100% for the first time since the start of the season.

The last month has been a struggle for Hibbert since his right knee swelled up between the first and second games this season. Hibbert missed five games with that injury, but the effects stretched well beyond that span. However, he is finally playing close to pain-free. On Thursday, he had 11 points, four rebounds and two blocks in 17 minutes. However, he is still not worth rostering in standard leagues.

Roy Hibbert moved back to the bench on Friday with four points, eight rebounds and one block in 21 minutes against the Knicks.

He actually looked better than expected and the Hornets will now need Frank Kaminsky to get almost all his minutes at the four. Hibbert is still not worth owning in most leagues.

Cody Zeller will start in New York on Friday night, which means Roy Hibbert will return to the Hornets bench.

Hibbert started the last three games in place of Zeller, but averaged just 5.3 points and 1.7 rebounds in less than 15 minutes per contest. With Zeller healthy and back in the starting lineup, there is no reason for Hibbert to be rostered in standard fantasy leagues.
Fri, Nov 25, 2016 06:12:00 PM

Roy Hibbert started again on Wednesday and notched 10 points with two rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes.

Cody Zeller (shoulder) was absent but Hibbert's minutes are still being closely monitored following his knee injury. The Hornets came in as league-leaders in second-half scoring margin at +7.1 points, but the Spurs edged them out by four points after halftime en route to a 119-114 road win.

Roy Hibbert, who is on a minutes watch due to a knee injury, started on Monday, but hit just 1-of-1 shots for two points and one rebound in 11 minutes.

He's clearly not at full strength and Spencer Hawes and Frank Kaminsky were rolling tonight, at least until Kaminsky hurt his ankle later in the game. Hibbert is useless in fantasy until he can get healthy and show us that he can still effectively play NBA center. And with him not showing up on nights when Cody Zeller is in street clothes, the outlook isn't promising.
Mon, Nov 21, 2016 11:00:00 PM

Roy HIbbert will be able to play a few more minutes on Monday against the Grizzlies.

He was limited to 14-16 on Saturday, but he was able to see 17 minutes of action. An earlier report today had Hibbert at 18 minutes, but it sounds like it's closer to 20. Regardless, the Hornets are almost certainly not going to let Hibbert play 30 minutes no matter how long Cody Zeller (shoulder) is out. He's a very risky season-long asset while DFS owners probably should consider him as a low-floor wild card in tournaments.
