Josh McRoberts scored three points on 1-of-5 shooting (all threes) with two rebounds and four assists in 15 foul-plagued minutes on Monday.
McRoberts isn't going to make owners confident going into Wednesday's game after this result but a late-round grade is probably a fair projection. Gary Neal added 17 points with two threes in 25 minutes off the bench, and he's only worth a look if you're hunting points and threes. Apr 14 - 10:42 PM

Josh McRoberts returned from a sprained ankle and hit 5-of-12 shots for 12 points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes on Wednesday.

McBob has had a nice season and has been a borderline player to own for most of the year. And tonight was pretty typical of what he should do the rest of the way.
Apr 9 - 9:44 PM

Josh McRoberts (ankle) will play against the Wizards on Wednesday night.

He said he felt pretty good heading into this game and he should be ready to go after missing one week of action. McRoberts has put up nice stats all season thanks to an impressive assist:turnover ratio, so he's worth putting back into all standard lineups tonight. Cody Zeller moves back to the bench.
Apr 9 - 6:35 PM

Josh McRoberts (sprained ankle) intends to play vs. the Wizards on Wednesday.

"" feel pretty good," said McRoberts. "I plan on giving it a shot." He practiced on Monday and Tuesday but did not go through any scrimmages, so anyone relying on him should confirm his availability closer to tip-off. His absence has had an immediate impact on Charlotte's play, and coach Steve Clifford said his team hasn't "had nearly the same ball movement, the same pace up and down the floor."
Apr 9 - 10:05 AM

Josh McRoberts is expected to play on Wednesday despite a sprained ankle, according to coach Steve Clifford.

"Nothing is set in stone" and a lot can happen between now and game time, but if you were on the fence about starting McBob this week, it does sound like there's a decent chance he'll play tomorrow.
Apr 8 - 12:10 PM

Josh McRoberts (ankle) will not play in Friday's game against the Magic and is shooting for a return to practice Monday.

In other words, McRoberts is also out Saturday and will be reevaluated ahead of Wednesday's game against the Wizards. Look for athletic rookie Cody Zeller to draw the start as a high-risk, high-reward option. He managed just nine points, eight rebounds and three assists in 27 minutes against the lowly Sixers on Wednesday, losing lots of playing time to Anthony Tolliver.
Apr 4 - 11:14 AM

Josh McRoberts (ankle) is doubtful to play vs. the Magic on Friday.

Beat writer Rick Bonnell surmises that if McBob sits on Friday he'll also remain out Saturday in Cleveland. Cody Zeller had nine points, eight rebounds, three assists and one block in 27 minutes as a starter on Wednesday, while Bismack Biyombo and Anthony Tolliver also picked up extra playing time off the bench.
Apr 3 - 3:52 PM

Josh McRoberts will not play against the Sixers on Wednesday due to a sprained left ankle.

He suffered the injury on Monday night and this will be his first game out of the lineup since Nov. 13. McRoberts played 31.1 minutes per game in March, so coach Steve Clifford will have to get creative with his rotation. When McRoberts isn't on the court, the overwhelming majority of the left over playing time at power forward has gone to Cody Zeller, so he's looking at his greatest opportunity as a pro in a favorable matchup. Anthony Tolliver will get in the mix while Chris Douglas-Roberts could come in the game as part of a smaller lineup.
Apr 2 - 5:04 PM

Josh McRoberts got loose in Friday's overtime loss to the Magic, scoring 24 points on 8-of-16 shooting (including a career-high six threes) with seven rebounds, six assists, one steal and two blocks.

McRoberts is among the most underrated players in the league and has been key to the Bobcats' success this season. He's improved some of the consistency issues that dogged him in the first half of the season as far as fantasy production is concerned, but since then he has been a must-own player in 12-team formats.
Mar 28 - 10:00 PM

Josh McRoberts hit 5-of-6 shots for 12 points, six rebounds, four assists and a steal in Wednesday's overtime win against the Nets on Wednesday.

McBob had an incredible reverse jam in traffic late in the game, which could be the No. 1 play of the night on the four-letter network later. His scoring has been an issue lately, although he has scored 12 and 11 points in his last two games. He's a borderline fantasy play, just as he has been all season.
Mar 26 - 9:52 PM

Josh McRoberts scored seven points on 3-of-6 shooting (including a three) with two rebounds and four assists in 25 minutes.

McRoberts jumped on and off waiver wires for much of the first half of the season but is a classic grinder in fantasy leagues. If you set it and forget it with him all season long he has returned mid-round value by virtue of constant late round value.
Mar 3 - 10:05 PM

Josh McRoberts handed out 10 assists against the Spurs on Friday with four points, four boards, two blocks, three steals and one turnover in 30 minutes.

He's one of the better passing big men in the NBA and his ability to stretch the floor has been a great fit next to Al Jefferson. McRoberts has come on strong in his last five, averaging 10.2 points, 5.2 boards, 4.4 assists, 1.0 blocks, 0.8 steals and 1.6 treys and the Bobcats staying quiet at the deadline should clear the runway for him the rest of the way. He's a bit of an unheralded must-start player in fantasy leagues and actually holds fifth-round value on the year.
Feb 28 - 11:45 PM

Josh McRoberts hit 5-of-8 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, five rebounds, five assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over Detroit

He had 14 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers last night, and is averaging 11.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.6 3-pointers over his last five. As usual, he's worth owning in most leagues, and makes for a useful start during four-game weeks in weekly leagues.
Feb 19 - 9:43 PM

Josh McRoberts hit just 3-of-5 shots, but all three makes were 3-pointers and he finished with 14 points, 10 rebounds and three assists in a win over the Pistons.

McBob was nice and efficient tonight, and while he can do better with assists than tonight's effort, no one is going to complain after he picked up just his second double-double of the season. He's had some borderline fantasy value all season and looked rested after the break.
Feb 18 - 11:21 PM

Josh McRoberts hit 5-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 13 points, two rebounds, three assists and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Nets.

McBob had a nice game on Tuesday as well, racking up nine points, two steals, three 3-pointers and a career-high 13 assists. He's averaging 9.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.2 3-pointers over his last five games, while his full-season numbers are similar, but come in slightly lower. As usual, he'll help your team some weeks, and hurt it in others, but is playing very well right now.
