Spencer Hawes returned to the Hornets' bench during Wednesday's home victory, finishing with six points, four boards, four assists, two steals and one block in 20 minutes.
Hawes played well in six fill-in starts for Cody Zeller (shoulder), averaging 9.0 points, 1.3 triples, 7.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.7 blocks. Anyone who grabbed Hawes during Zeller's absence can safely cut him loose -- he's playing just 16.9 minutes as a reserve and his role may vanish entirely whenever Al Jefferson (knee) gets back on the court.

Spencer Hawes made another start for the short-handed Hornets on Wednesday, scoring nine points with two 3-pointers, four rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes.

Hawes continues to play well with both Al Jefferson (knee) and Cody Zeller (shoulder) on the shelf. He's now averaging 11.3 points, 1.8 threes, 7.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals in four starts, but isn't a promising long-term pickup with Zeller possibly returning in early February. DFS owners shouldn't sleep on him, however, with another start looming vs. the Blazers on Friday.
Jan 28 - 12:21 AM

Spencer Hawes scored 18 points with seven boards, two steals and four 3-pointers before fouling out in 30 minutes in Monday's win over the Kings.

Hawes had just two points vs. the Knicks on Saturday, but he now has averages of 12.0 points, 9.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.7 3-pointers in 32.0 minutes per game in his last three outings. Cody Zeller (shoulder) has already been ruled out for the rest of the week and could miss more time, so Hawes is worth a long look if you need short-term value.
Jan 26 - 1:24 AM

Spencer Hawes made just 1-of-7 from the field for two points with 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 34 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday.

That's a ton of run for Hawes, who now will be the starter for at least a week. Even with Cody Zeller (shoulder) and Al Jefferson (knee) out of the picture, Hawes is still only an add in deeper leagues. He's just not that good.
Jan 23 - 10:28 PM

Spencer Hawes scored 16 points in a start against the Magic during a 120-116 overtime win on Friday, adding 10 rebounds, thee assists, one block and one 3-pointer.

This was a big game from him, but it's still hard to buy him as an add. He usually disappoints when he gets a chance and Cody Zeller (shoulder) is only day-to-day. Hawes isn't a great pickup in most leagues.
Jan 23 - 2:26 AM

Spencer Hawes will start on Friday against the Magic.

The Hornets are not playing Frank Kaminsky at center, so expect Hawes to be backed up by Tyler Hansbrough. Hawes was a massive letdown the last time he had an opportunity, so he'll need to perform first to be a pickup.
Jan 22 - 5:41 PM

Spencer Hawes and Jeremy Lin are likely to enter the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Magic with both Cody Zeller (shoulder) and Nicolas Batum (toe) unavailable.

Hawes has been largely irrelevant in fantasy hoops for the past two years, and while he'll have some increased opportunity as a starter Friday night, he also only managed to put up six points, six boards and three assists through 27 minutes of action on Wednesday. Frank Kaminsky has been on a roll lately, and he makes for the better DFS target on Friday with Zeller out. Lin also makes sense as a DFS target with a favorable matchup against the Magic.

Spencer Hawes scored six points against the Thunder on Wednesday with six rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 27 minutes.

If Cody Zeller (shoulder) needs to miss time, we'll be seeing a lot of Hawes. Of course, the last time we counted on Hawes in fantasy, it was last year when he was supposed to step up when Blake Griffin had an elbow issue -- he was awful. Hawes is only worth a look in deep leagues.
Jan 21 - 1:03 AM

Spencer Hawes played 20 minutes in his return to the lineup on Monday with six points, four rebounds and four assists.

He didn't play in garbage time, so it looks like Hawes is projected to play around 20 minutes now. That's still nowhere near where he needs to be to become a pickup in most leagues.
Jan 5 - 2:34 AM

Spencer Hawes (back) will play on Monday against the Warriors.

This means there Tyler Hansbrough could play a little less in this game. The most important thing to watch here is whether or not Frank Kaminsky plays at center again, which happened on Saturday. Hawes has almost no value.
Jan 4 - 9:15 PM

Spencer Hawes (back) is probable for Monday against the Warriors.

He was expected to play on Saturday, but did not. Hawes' possible return would likely hurt Tyler Hansbrough the most. Also, Frank Kaminsky played some center minutes on Saturday, so that would be less likely with Hawes active.
Jan 4 - 2:45 PM

Spencer Hawes (back) will not enter Saturday's game vs. the Thunder.

He was expected to be available, but he went back to the locker room before the start of the fourth quarter. Leave Hawes on the wire.
Jan 2 - 9:07 PM

Spencer Hawes (back) will be available to play on Saturday vs. the Thunder.

Hawes may see a few more minutes in the rotation with Al Jefferson (knee) expected to miss six weeks, but he is still not a fantasy option in almost any league. Tyler Hansbrough may not leave the bench in this one.
Jan 2 - 6:34 PM

Spencer Hawes (back) is a game-time decision against the Thunder on Saturday.

If he can play, that likely means he's the backup center. If he's out, Tyler Hansbrough will play more.
Jan 2 - 5:24 PM

Spencer Hawes will not play against the Raptors on Friday.

It'll be Tyler Hansbrough as the backup center tonight. Hawes has very little fantasy value.
