Spencer Hawes is likely to be available for Saturday against the Suns.

That means he's not going to play against the Nuggets tonight. When asked about Roy Hibbert and Hawes, coach Jason Kidd said he would "hopefully get them in the mix." This situation will be too annoying for most owners with how Kidd plays the matchups with his starting center.
Feb 3 - 2:19 PM

The Bucks reached an agreement in principle to trade Miles Plumlee to Charlotte for Roy Hibbert and Spencer Hawes, according to Marc Stein and Brian Windhorst of

He had a really rough night on Wednesday as the starter. Hawes has been stepping up for the Hornets lately with 24.6 minutes per game in his last five. The 28-year-old big man usually wasn't in the rotation when Cody Zeller (quad) wasn't healthy, though. He likely wouldn't have more value in Milwaukee and this deal is more about getting Plumlee's contract off the books.
Feb 2 - 2:30 PM

Spencer Hawes started vs. the Warriors on Wednesday, finishing with four points, four boards, three assists and two blocks in 25 minutes.

Roy Hibbert picked up a DNP-CD tonight, and Cody Zeller (quad) was sidelined, so Hawes saw his role expand due to the matchup. The blocks help salvage some value, and he was far from the only Hornets player to struggle -- Marvin Williams scored 14 points in 31 minutes, but no other starter logged more than 25 minutes tonight. Hawes is likely headed back to the bench on Friday.
Feb 2 - 1:25 AM

Spencer Hawes will start against the Warriors on Wednesday and Roy Hibbert will come off the bench.

Hibbert against the Warriors just doesn't make sense here. We should see a little more of Frank Kaminsky at the five in this game, assuming he can make shots. Hawes should be looking at minutes in the mid-20s and could have some short-term value.
Feb 1 - 9:33 PM

Spencer Hawes played just 16 minutes and hit 4-of-9 shots for eight points, four rebounds and two assists in Tuesday's 115-98 loss to the Thunder.

Cody Zeller was out again with his quad injury, but starting center Roy Hibbert played just 13 minutes, Hawes played 16 minutes, and Frank Kaminsky played 25 minutes and scored 10 points. None of the reserve centers in Charlotte are reliable enough to count on when Zeller's injured, and are even worse when he's healthy. Zeller is doubtful for Wednesday's game against Warriors, and while Hawes figures to have the best shot at success off the bench, he's simply too unreliable to throw into lineups.
Feb 1 - 12:30 AM

Spencer Hawes scored 12 points with seven rebounds, one assist and one block in 28 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

He didn't play at all in the first quarter with the Hornets going small after Roy Hibbert checked out. There's a good chance Cody Zeller (quad) will be back for Tuesday, so this may be Hawes' last chance for big minutes.
Jan 28 - 9:37 PM

Spencer Hawes came off the bench on Wednesday for 10 points, 13 rebounds, five assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes of action.

Cody Zeller was out tonight with a bruised quadriceps, and Roy Hibbert lasted only 17 minutes as a starter, so Hawes' double-double was mostly situational. He played a total of five minutes in Charlotte's previous four games, which nicely sums up his fantasy outlook.
Jan 26 - 12:30 AM

Spencer Hawes had 16 points, five rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers on 7-of-10 shooting in 25 minutes off the bench on Tuesday.

Frank Kaminsky had a big night with 22 points and Hawes is sharing time with Cody Zeller, the Tank and Roy Hibbert at center. Hawes also benefitted tonight by Cody Zeller being out with an illness. Of the four players mentioned here, we'd rank them Zeller, Kaminsky, Hawes and Hibbert as far as who is most worth owning. Hawes didn't even play on Saturday, as Zeller was active for that one.
Jan 10 - 10:58 PM

Spencer Hawes was a DNP-CD on Saturday against the Spurs.

With Cody Zeller back in action, Hawes falls to third on the depth chart at center. He won't be playing much while Zeller and Roy Hibbert are healthy.
Jan 8 - 1:24 AM

Spencer Hawes hit 6-of-13 shots for a season-high 18 points with four rebounds, three assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes on Thursday against the Pistons.

Despite not being in the starting lineup, Hawes played the most minutes at center with Cody Zeller (concussion) sidelined. Roy Hibbert got the start, but played just 18 minutes, hitting 3-of-3 shots for eight points, six rebounds and three blocks. If Zeller misses more time, Hawes is the favorite to receive the majority of the minutes at the five.
Jan 5 - 11:42 PM

Spencer Hawes played 26 minutes off the bench on Monday, hitting 5-of-9 shots for 10 points, three rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

Cody Zeller is in the concussion protocol and could miss time, while starter Roy Hibbert had six points, zero rebounds and zero blocks in 22 minutes tonight. If Zeller is going to miss time, Hawes could become the defacto starter, so keep an eye on him going forward.
Jan 3 - 12:01 AM

Spencer Hawes came off the bench but played 37 minutes and finished with a season-high 14 points, 10 rebounds, a steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers on 6-of-14 shooting in Monday's loss to Memphis.

Roy Hibbert started and did nothing, while Cody Zeller is dealing with a shoulder injury right now. Hawes could be a sneaky add or DFS punt as long as Zeller is hurting, as Hibbert doesn't appear capable of doing much of anything right now. If you own Hibbert, dumping him for Hawes makes sense.

Spencer Hawes double-doubled in 22 minutes vs. the Pacers on Monday, scoring 13 points with 13 rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer.

He was 6-of-11 from the field and this was his second straight game with 13 points. Hawes is getting minutes in the mid-20s with Roy Hibbert (knee) out, but the blowout also helped him out tonight. He's a short-term option for deep-league owners.
Mon, Nov 7, 2016 09:43:00 PM

Spencer Hawes played 20 minutes off the bench and hit 3-of-9 shots for six points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block on Saturday.

He got some extra run with Roy Hibbert sitting with a sore knee and it's a little surprising he didn't attempt a 3-point shot tonight. The Hornets have several big men who will help fill in for Hibbert (Cody Zeller, Hawes and Frank Kaminsky), but none of them look like great fantasy options.
