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.
Nov 7 - 9:43 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.

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.

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.
Oct 20 - 11:22 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.
Oct 8 - 6:29 PM

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.
Jul 4 - 4:50 PM

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.
Jun 23 - 9:21 AM

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.
May 1 - 4:11 PM

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.
