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.

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.

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.

Spencer Hawes scored 10 points with nine rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 20 minutes against the Heat on Friday.

With Roy Hibbert (knee) getting dinged up, we could see Hawes get a bump in playing time. He made six starts last year and has played some minutes in dual-center lineups this year. Hibbert seems to be just day-to-day, so the needle on Hawes doesn't move too much.
Sat, Oct 29, 2016 01:03:00 AM

Spencer Hawes (rest) will not play on Friday.

He's just getting the night off. Hawes is going to come off the bench for the Hornets and isn't expected to be a noteworthy contributor.
Thu, Oct 20, 2016 11:22:00 PM

Spencer Hawes had six points, five rebounds, five assists and two turnovers in 21 minutes during a 104-86 preseason loss to the Celtics on Saturday.

Every once in a while, Hawes looks like a player who should be playing more. Then he plays more, and you ask yourself why he's playing so much. In summary: File this game away and move on.

The Hornets are looking to trade Spencer Hawes.

The Hornets are looking to move him to make room for Roy Hibbert or Zaza Pachulia. Hawes is still only 28 years old, but his playing time dropped to 18.2 minutes per game. He won't be a fantasy target in most situations.

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.
Sun, May 1, 2016 12:36:00 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.
