The Hornets are open to dealing the 22nd pick in the 2016 NBA Draft if a team takes on the contract of Spencer Hawes or Jeremy Lamb.

Hawes is due $6.3 million in 2016-17 and the Hornets would like to get him off their books so they can have some financial flexibility in free agency. Hawes is nothing more than a bench player at this point in his career and doesn't have much fantasy value beyond deeper leagues.

Spencer Hawes (knee sprain) did not leave the bench on Sunday vs. the Heat.

He was available to play, so we will take him off the injury report now that he has a full offseason to recover. Hawes is under contract with the Hornets through the 2017-18 season, so he will likely reprise his role off the bench next season. He finished the 2015-16 regular season with averages of 6.0 points, 4.3 boards and 1.9 assists in 18.2 minutes per game.

Spencer Hawes (knee sprain) is available to play in Game 7 vs. the Heat on Sunday.

Originally expected to miss at least a week of action, Hawes was a late addition to the active roster and it's not a guarantee that he plays. Even if he does get some action, his minutes will likely be limited to the teens.
May 1 - 12:36 PM

Spencer Hawes (knee sprain) has been upgraded to questionable for Game 7 vs. the Heat on Sunday.

He was supposed to be sidelined for at least a week, so this is definitely a surprise. Hawes will warm up and try to play, but he will only see minutes in the teens at best if he's cleared.
May 1 - 12:01 PM

Spencer Hawes has been diagnosed with a right MCL sprain, and he will miss at least the next week of action.

Hawes will obviously miss Friday's Game 6 against the Heat, and he's going to be re-evaluated in one week, although it wouldn't be surprising at all to see his absence extend beyond that one-week timeline. Tyler Hansbrough, Cody Zeller and Frank Kaminsky should pick up some extra minutes in Hawes' absence.

Spencer Hawes (right knee sprain) is being listed as doubtful for Friday's Game 6 against Miami.

It's unclear exactly when Hawes suffered the knee injury, but it's looking like he'll be spending Game 6 on the sidelines. His minutes will likely be divvied up between Tyler Hansbrough, Cody Zeller and Frank Kaminsky, but Hawes' absence won't have a dramatic impact on the fantasy landscape.

Spencer Hawes played 19 minutes off the bench on Sunday, scoring nine points with nine rebounds (five offensive), two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

Hawes played more with Al Jefferson (knee) unavailable but he's not a standard-league option. The Hornets have a top-10 defensive rating this season, though that wasn't evident tonight as they allowed the Cavs to scored 112 points on 54.2 percent shooting, including a 16-of-29 mark from downtown.
Apr 3 - 6:17 PM

Hornets head coach Steve Clifford said that he expects Spencer Hawes to get into the rotation for Tuesday's game against the Nets.

Marvin Williams (ankle) is set to spend Tuesday night on the sidelines, thus opening up some extra minutes for Hawes. However, with Al Jefferson and Cody Zeller healthy, it's unlikely Hawes gets enough run off the bench to make a difference in most leagues.
Mar 22 - 6:25 PM

Spencer Hawes was a DNP-CD on Saturday.

He's just the third string center for the Hornets when they are healthy. Hawes won't have value while Al Jefferson and Cody Zeller are in the lineup.
Mar 19 - 8:23 PM

Spencer Hawes (back) is available to play against the Nuggets on Saturday.

He is not a lock to play. Cody Zeller (knee) is questionable, but there is nothing structurally wrong and the Hornets are optimistic he'll play. If Zeller is out, Hawes might get 20 minutes tonight.
Mar 19 - 4:26 PM

Spencer Hawes (back) will be available to play against the Nuggets on Saturday.

He hasn't played since Feb. 10, so he will likely only be used in emergency situations. Even if Cody Zeller (knee) isn't able to play on Saturday, there's no reason to pick up Hawes in most leagues.
Mar 19 - 9:24 AM

Spencer Hawes (back) could be "a ways away" from a return, according to coach Steve Clifford.

He might not even be in the rotation now that Al Jefferson is back. Hawes can stay on the wire in almost every league.
Mar 7 - 5:36 PM

Spencer Hawes (back) was able to do some shooting at Sunday's practice.

It's his first activity since injuring his back, so he's probably not ready to return just yet. With the Hornets at full strength, Hawes will be looking at a limited role off the bench when he is cleared to play. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 6 - 12:23 PM

Spencer Hawes (back) is at least a week away from practicing, according to beat reporter Rick Bonnell.

Hawes has missed the past five games due to the back injury, and it doesn't sound like he's anywhere near returning to the court. With Al Jefferson healthy, Hawes is an irrelevant name in fantasy hoops and he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
