Kemba Walker is hoping that Roy Hibbert can find his form in Charlotte.
"I think, if he can get back to the level he once was at, he can be a huge help to us," Walker said. The Hornets signed the big man to a one-year, $5 million deal, but he's not even a lock to beat out Cody Zeller for the starting center role. He averaged just 5.9 points, 4.9 boards and 1.4 blocks as the full-time starting center in Los Angeles last season, so fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited. Hopefully a fresh start under coach Steve Clifford will get him going. Aug 5 - 11:16 AM

Roy Hibbert has agreed to terms with the Hornets on a one-year, $5 million contract.

The Hornets have their Al Jefferson replacement. Hibbert's 23.2 minutes per game are his lowest average since his rookie season. His blocks per game were also his worst since his rookie season while he saw a major drop in usage. Hibbert is still just 29 years old, so maybe he can get it turned around. Maybe assistant coach Patrick Ewing can get him going again. He's not a great fantasy option, of course.

Roy Hibbert racked up 12 points, nine boards, two steals and three blocks vs. Miami on Wednesday, while tying his season-high with 33 minutes in an OT victory.

Hibbert is now averaging 10.0 points, 7.5 boards and 3.5 blocks in his past two games, but it's hard to get excited after a season of futility. He was benched in overtime, as the Lakers went with a frontcourt of Julius Randle and Brandon Bass, and most owners should ignore him with only seven games left in the Lakers' season.

When recently asked about his performance, Roy Hibbert couldn't explain his struggles with the Lakers this season.

"I honestly don’t know," Hibbert said. "I can’t put a word on it or explain this season as well as my lack of success or the team." Byron Scott believes the league's ability to go small has really hurt Hibbert, but the big man's own ineffectiveness has a lot to do with it, as well. Hibbert has become a complete non-factor in fantasy formats and on the defensive end of the floor, and he's going to have to take a major paycut on a "prove it" type of deal in free agency this summer in order to try and resurrect his stock around the NBA.

Roy Hibbert was predictably quiet vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday, finishing with eight points, two rebounds and one block in just 18 minutes.

Hibbert scored 14 points on Tuesday but that's his only double-digit performance in the past month. The 29-year-old big man has done nothing to rehabilitate his image in L.A. -- over the past 10 games he's averaging a mere 4.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and 0.5 blocks per game. No thanks.
Mar 3 - 1:34 AM

Roy Hibbert had a lackluster performance against the Spurs on Friday, producing just two points on 1-of-3 shooting to go with six rebounds, three assists and one block in 22 minutes.

Oh how the mediocre have fallen. Hibbert looks all set up for his standard second-half plunge, and he’s just not worth owning in most leagues, not even as a "specialist."

The Lakers are taking calls for Roy Hibbert, but they don't intend to pursue a buyout if he is not dealt.

An earlier report suggested that the Lakers could pursue a buyout with Hibbert, but they will do everything in their power to move him first. He is on an expiring contract worth more than $15.5 million, so the Lakers would likely have to add a sweetener to any deal. A trade is not imminent and Hibbert is not a great stash.
Feb 18 - 1:40 PM

Roy Hibbert could pursue a buyout from the Lakers if he's not moved before the deadline.

He is on an expiring deal, but he won't be easy to trade because he is making over $15.5 million this season. Hibbert has been disappointing all year with averages of 6.6 points, 5.2 boards and 1.5 blocks, so he's nothing but a desperation stash in very deep leagues.
Feb 18 - 11:41 AM

Roy Hibbert (ankle) started vs. the Cavs on Wednesday but had only nine points, three rebounds and one turnover in 17 minutes of action.

The Cavaliers have been the toughest team for opposing centers this season, allowing the fewest rebounds and steals, and the third-fewest points, so Hibbert's dud isn't unexpected. He has zero blocks in February so even his 'specialist' appeal has evaporated.

Roy Hibbert (ankle) will start on Wednesday against the Cavs.

He was probable to play and should be ready to go. Hibbert has not played well at all and he will probably only be around 20 minutes tonight. There should be fewer minutes for Robert Sacre, Brandon Bass and Tarik Black.
Feb 10 - 6:35 PM

Roy Hibbert (left ankle) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers.

Hibbert looks likely to return to the Lakers lineup after missing Monday's game against the Pacers and will push Robert Sacre back to the bench. While Hibbert can help fantasy owners in with blocks, he has just one in his last four games and isn't worth owning in most standard fantasy leagues.
Feb 9 - 1:59 PM

Roy Hibbert (anke) will not play against the Pacers on Monday night.

It'll be his first missed game as a Laker and first since Nov. 29, 2014. With Hibbert out, Robert Sacre will probably get the start after starting the second half on Saturday. Brandon Bass and Tarik Black should also benefit.

Roy Hibbert (ankle) is unlikely to play on Monday against the Pacers.

No revenge game here. With Hibbert likely out, that should mean more run for Tarik Black, Robert Sacre and Brandon Bass. Fantasy owners probably don't need to make an add here while Julius Randle could get a couple more minutes again.
Feb 8 - 4:29 PM

Roy Hibbert (left ankle sprain) is still questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

Hibbert will want to play against his former team, so he'll do whatever he can to try and be out there. If he sits, expect Tarik Black, Brandon Bass and Robert Sacre to have a bump in minutes.
Feb 8 - 12:09 PM

Byron Scott said Roy Hibbert has "done everything he can do for us from a defensive standpoint."

Some might argue differently, but the Lakers defense is so bad that no one man is going to make a sizable impact. Regardless, Hibbert has really struggled in his first season with the Lakers, and as his playing time has dwindled, he's embraced a mentorship role with the younger players. Hibbert is questionable for Monday's (revenge) game vs. the Pacers due to a sprained left ankle, but you can bet he'll do his best to be out there against his former team. If not, Tarik Black, Brandon Bass and Robert Sacre will earn more minutes.
