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. Dec 2 - 10:03 AM

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.

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.
Nov 23 - 10:25 PM

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.

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.

Roy Hibbert will be limited to 18 minutes on Monday vs. the Grizzlies.

He will start again with Cody Zeller (shoulder) out, but there's not enough upside here to trust him in most lineups. Hibbert hit 2-of-4 shots for four points, two rebounds and zero blocks in just 17 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Saturday.
Nov 21 - 11:22 AM

Roy Hibbert started on Saturday and hit 2-of-4 shots for four points, two rebounds and zero blocks in just 17 minutes.

Yuck. Cody Zeller looks like the starter now, but was out with a shoulder injury tonight. Hibbert got things off to a great start this season with 15 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks in the opener, but got hurt in his next game and hasn't played more than 17 minutes since. Leave him on the wire, not that you'd want to pick him up after this dud.
Nov 19 - 11:53 PM

Roy Hibbert will start against the Pelicans on Saturday and has a 16-minute limit.

He was the opening-night starter for the Hornets, but he was hurt the next game because the Hornets played him 32 minutes in the opener. Hibbert hasn't played more than 17 minutes in any game, so the minutes cap is the right move. We'll see some Spencer Hawes and you can bet there will be some Frank Kaminsky at the five, too.
Nov 19 - 5:40 PM

Roy Hibbert played 13 minutes off the bench during Sunday's loss to the Cavs, scoring six poitns on 3-of-5 shooting to go with three boards and one block.

Hibbert had a nice first game of the year, but then he spent two weeks on the sidelines with a sore knee, and Steve Clifford continues to bring him along slowly. He'll likely be locked into a timeshare with Cody Zeller once he's fully up to speed, so this is a situation that should be avoided in standard leagues.
Nov 13 - 6:31 PM

Roy Hibbert (sore knee) will play limited minutes vs. the Cavs on Sunday.

Hibbert experienced some soreness in his right knee following Friday's loss to the Raptors, which is concerning considering he was only on the court for 13 minutes. There's no way he exceeds the 13-minute mark tonight, so he's not worth deploying anywhere. Owners in standard leagues can do better.
Nov 13 - 2:27 PM

Roy Hibbert (knee) returned from a five-game absence on Friday vs. the Raptors and played well, scoring 10 points with two rebounds and one assist in 13 minutes.

The Hornets gave him a restriction of 12-14 minutes, but his knee looked fine and he should be ready for a slightly larger workload on Sunday vs. Cleveland. The best-case scenario for Hibbert is likely a timeshare with Cody Zeller, but he's playing well and is at least worth a look if you're targeting blocks.
Nov 11 - 10:25 PM

Roy Hibbert (knee) will have a 12-14 minute limit on Friday against the Raptors.

The Hornets learned their lesson after they played him 32 minutes in the opener. He'll likely be limited for a while to prevent another injury. With Hibbert back, Cody Zeller and Spencer Hawes lose some of their appeal.
Nov 11 - 5:32 PM

Roy Hibbert (sore right knee) will play Friday night vs. Toronto.

Hibbert has missed five straight games dealing with this sore knee. Thus, he will most likely play sparingly in his return to the Hornets lineup. Cody Zeller will see his minutes reduced with Hibbert back in the fold.
Nov 11 - 11:16 AM

Roy Hibbert (sore right knee) is being listed as probable for Friday's game against the Raptors.

Hibbert has spent the past two weeks on the sidelines, so he'll likely be brought along slowly as his conditioning probably isn't where it needs to be. Once he is fully up to speed, he'll likely be splitting minutes with Cody Zeller, so it's unlikely he'll be anything more than a deep league shot blocking specialist this season.
